Corona Protest websites organized? This is going to get interesting

More evidence that a group of conservative political activists is operating a network of websites meant to inflame pandemic-related tension in the U.S.
and solicit donations has been uncovered by a Seattle-based cybersecurity company.

Threat intelligence firm DomainTools released research Friday indicating that pro-gun activist Aaron Dorr appears to be using widely available software
to operate dozens of websites, many of which include “reopen” in the URL.

DomainTools researchers have conducted a technical examination of “reopen” sites — like “ReopenMN” and “ReopenWI” — to determine just how consolidated
the sites are, despite the appearance that they exist as standalone entities. The sites are registered to local gun advocacy groups and utilize One Click
Politics, a digital organizing service that allows a single person to manage dozens of websites, run email promotion and collect money.

This is the beginning of one article in which the topic of Corona Virus web sites protesting the stay at home orders that have been in place in most places since some time in March.

There are two articles here, the first was penned by Krebs on Security, the second from Cyberscoop. Krebs on Security asks the question on his: Who’s Behind the “Reopen” Domain Surge? It goes in to detail about the same set of people in a great article I think can be linked to this one. I may have linked to this before and if I have, I apologize.

The 2nd article which was quoted above is entitled Researchers discover how far-right coronavirus protest websites are organized and its good too. Both articles raise some great points, and I think both should be read in turn.

    To be honest with the political state of the us right I am not surprised.
    If someone in power says you should inject or drink cleaning products to fix the virus he or she is liable to get some backlash from the community.
    This will be that backlash.
