- A report lays out that far-right extremists are increasingly finding themselves fired from their jobs and virtually unemployable after their names and faces are exposed by their victims.
- The Jan 6th Capitol insurrectionists being rounded up by the FBI are finding that their future appears rather bleak, even if they manage to avoid jail time.

According to the WaPo’s Robert Klemko, “Two days later, Dawson lost his job as an ironworker, his employer citing his actions in D.C. His wife, Michelle, uploaded a tearful self-shot video to Twitter announcing his firing, and later that month she was asked to hand in her vest and badge at a Walmart in Battle Ground, Wash., where she worked as an online-order fulfiller. She thinks she was fired over her politics but acknowledges that she had missed a substantial amount of work because of back problems…”
