On Thursday, four members of the extremist group the Proud Boys were found guilty of seditious conspiracy for their role in the January 6 Capitol attack. The decision, which includes a conviction for their former leader Enrique Tarrio, could be a major blow to the neo-fascist group. Still, they've already moved on to their next act.

After rising to prominence for their brawls mostly with anti-fascists, in the past two years the organization has altered its targets. The next frontier for the Proud Boys is patroling anti-LGBTQ drag queen brunches and story hour protests.
