Every media outlet out there has written about the thousands of Trump supporters who traveled to Washington D.C. Many stormed the Capitol, taped their activities with their phones and posted it on social media.
Not surprisingly, many of those people, who some are referring to as “domestic terrorists,” are now finding themselves arrested, fired, or being called to resign from their positions.
Airlines and flight attendants were concerned about security risks when carrying some of these individuals home, so they took extra precautions – they beefed up security, at least one airline temporarily banned alcohol on its D.C. flights, and one pilot even threatened to “dump people off” if his passengers didn’t behave.

There’s one more thing that’s starting to happen though – they’re going on airlines’ no-fly lists. From Reuters:
Alaska Airlines said on Friday it has banned 14 passengers from future travel with the carrier after what it called “unacceptable” behavior on a flight from Washington Dulles to Seattle.
U.S airlines and law enforcement agencies bolstered security at Washington-area airports after reports of “mob behavior” by supporters of President Donald Trump on flights into the region before Wednesday’s siege on the U.S. Capitol,” raising concern about their departure.
Seattle-based Alaska said a number of passengers on a flight out of Washington late Thursday “were non-mask compliant, rowdy, argumentative and harassed our crew members.”
“Because of their actions and non-compliance, we have banned 14 of those passengers from future travel with us,” the airline said in a statement.
One of our readers even found video that appears to be one of the insurgents just finding out at the airport that he’s now on an airline’s no-fly list (Note: video is NSFW, with adult language):
