The Dorrs, a clan of grifters who prey on political conservatives, founded the anti-mask movement.

Cory Doctorow on Pluralistic:

A year ago, the Dorrs were making big money running anti-abortion and gun-rights hustles, but when the pandemic hit, they invented a new grift: a network of astroturf organizations calling for states to “re-open.”

That’s right: the Dorrs founded the Flu Klux Klan….

The Dorrs’ father started out as a Y2K grifter, then an antiabortion extremist, then devoted himself to defunding public education (he called homeschooling a “Biblical duty”), before going on to run Ron Paul’s Iowa campaign.

The Dorrs have been denounced by real far-right extremists.
