Anonymous is back at it again.

On Guy Fawkes Day, a favorite day for this type of thing, the hacktivist collective Anonymous released the promised full list of alleged Ku Klux Klan members' personal information.

The group released a similar, but much smaller list, earlier this week that named prominent members of congress and mayors as KKK members.

But those claims have largely been debunked.

"We consider this data dump as a form of resistance against the violence and intimidation tactics leveraged against the public by various members of Ku Klux Klan groups throughout history," Anonymous said.

The data dump has also given the public a glimpse at the strange slang KKK members use between each other.

It's a bad day to be in the KKK.

The hacktivist collective Anonymous just released the phone numbers and emails of about 40 alleged members of the Ku Klux Klan terrorist group.

You can view the full list here.

Anonymous said in a press release that about 1,000 more KKK members' information would be released in the coming days.

"The aim of this operation is digital. Another cyber war trist, nothing more. We are not violent," the press release states.

"We will release, to the global public, the identities of up to 1000 klan members, Ghoul Squad affiliates and other close associates of various factions of the Ku Klux Klan across the Unites States."

You have to dress for the part.

This unidentified man was caught making his way to a confederate flag rally, with the stars and bars held aloft, a KKK hat at the ready and a pair of FUBU shoes on his feet.

FUBU is an acronym meaning "For Us By Us" and was started by entrepreneur Daymond John as a way to inject money back into the black community by making their own fashion.

Hasn't that guy ever seen the LL Cool J commercial?

Unfortunately, the gentleman was unwilling to hear out reporter George Chidi who uploaded the video, instead bringing the attention back to what he hates.

"I hate what you people are doing to my county," the man said.

Apparently, he has no problem with the industriousness and fashion appeal of the footwear.

Do you enjoy your donuts with a nice cold glass of white power?

Krispy Kreme in the UK posted a very unfortunate promotional image on their Facebook page this week, which has since been taken down.

Alongside some less controversial activities like “Funday Monday,” “Balloon Madness” and “Face Painting Thursday” sits “KKK Wednesday.”

The event is scheduled for February 18, and runs from 12pm-5pm, so 5 hours of hate-filled donut revelry!

“KKK” is actually intended to stand for “Krispy Kreme Klub,” but to most people this connotes white hoods and cross burning.

The company has apologized for the mishap in a statement.

Krispy Kreme apologises unreservedly for the inappropriate name of a customer promotion at one of our stores. We are truly sorry for any offence this completely unintentional oversight may have caused. All material, both online and in the store, has been withdrawn and steps are being taken to ensure that greater precautions are taken with publicity materials in the future.

They add that the event was designed to attract customers into the shop to decorate doughnuts using their Krispy Kreation Station product and not as a casual Ku Klux Klan meetup with glazed refreshments.

Over the weekend, reports emerged that the Ku Klux Klan passed out fliers and warnings indicating they would enact "lethal force" against Ferguson protesters should they display aggression in response to the grand jury hearing of the Michael Brown shooting.

Hactivist group Anonymous did not take kindly to these threats.

As of the morning November 16, the Ku Klux Klan still had control over their own tweets, as you're seeing from their official Twitter feed here (who knew that abject hate could be so tuned in to social media trends?). Just later that evening Anonymous seized the Twitter account to use to their own ends, changing its profile picture to their own iconic image and tweeting things like this:

The moral of the story is the same as always: Just don't bother getting on Anonymous's bad side.
