The seemingly spontaneous protests against statewide stay-at-home orders have been promoted and financed by a right-wing network.

The demonstrators themselves are often genuinely frustrated by the lockdowns and economic loss, but the protests are amplified by a well-funded network of conservative individuals and groups, reported the Washington Post.

The Convention of States project — which launched in 2015 with a large donation from right-wing billionaire Robert Mercer's foundation — is pushing Facebook ads promoting the demonstrations, soliciting small donations and harvesting data.
