Far-Left Protesters Attack Democratic State Senator at Wisconsin Capitol

As Black Lives Matter protesters gathered at the Wisconsin State Capitol building, a state senator was assaulted after taking photos of the crowd, according to Fox News.

State Senator Tim Carpenter (D-Wisc.) was leaving the capitol building when he saw the crowd and started filming. As seen on his Twitter account, he was suddenly rushed by an overweight woman who attempted to take his phone, while Carpenter can be heard yelling for her to leave him alone. He said that in the following assault, he may have sustained a concussion, was “socked in [my] left eye,” and had a “sore neck and ribs.”

Carpenter later told a local reporter, who took a photo of a clearly-dazed Carpenter kneeling by his car, that “all I did was stop and take a picture, and the next thing I’m getting five-six punches, getting kicked in the head.” An ambulance was eventually called to the scene to treat Carpenter’s injuries.

Protesters on the same night tore down a historic statue that stood in front of the capitol building depicting Colonel Hans Christian Heg, an immigrant from Norway who died whilst in service to the Union Army.
