Default Crowds tear down statues, apparently attack Wisconsin state senator

Here is another example of a peaceful protest.

Quote:
Crowds tear down statues, apparently attack Wisconsin state senator

Crowds outside the Wisconsin State Capitol tore down two statues and allegedly attacked a state senator on Tuesday. Democratic state Sen. Tim Carpenter said he was assaulted in Madison after taking a photo of protesters.


Carpenter sent video of the incident to CBS News and also posted it on Twitter.

"I don't know what happened ... all I did was stop and take a picture ... and the next thing I'm getting five-six punches, getting kicked in the head," Carpenter told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Earlier, statues of Wisconsin's motto "Forward" and of Col. Hans Christian Heg were dragged away from the statehouse. The statue of Heg, an anti-slavery activist who fought and died for the Union during the U.S. Civil War, was decapitated and thrown into a Madison lake by protesters, the newspaper said.

State assembly speaker Robin Vos took to Twitter late Tuesday night, calling the tearing down of the statue "absolutely despicable."

Protesters chanting for the release of the man who'd been arrested also broke glass at the Tommy Thompson Center and smashed windows and lights at the state Capitol. Early Wednesday, police in riot gear worked to clear a crowd of about 100 people that remained in the area.

The protests unfolded after the arrest of a black man who was at a restaurant with a megaphone and a baseball bat.

Video released by the Madison Police Department shows the man talking through the megaphone Tuesday while walking near the restaurant's outdoor patio. He goes inside and says he's "disturbing" the restaurant. CBS affiliate WISC-TV reports that the man, identified by police as Devonere Johnson, got into a struggle with officers as they tried to arrest him.

In a second video released by police, at least five officers can be seen trying to subdue Johnson. He was eventually subdued and taken into custody.

It should surprise nobody when the mob turns on its appeasers. The movement depends on the ignorance of the mob. The French revolution came to an end with the execution of the man responsible for beheading "enemies". Mao's cultural revolution ended after the useful idiot intellectuals had been wiped out. The USSR purged enemies of the state in the name of egalitarianism. Kente cloth and sympathetic words aren't going to protect the elderly white Democrat figureheads nominally leading the party as the attack on the Wisconsin Democrat shows the mob has to have enemies to destroy.

I wonder if Democratic state Sen. Tim Carpenter supports de-funding the police.
I'm guessing no.

americafirstpatriots.com/antifa-thug-arrested...
This is a must see. These AntiFa thugs talk a big game online. They dress up in black masks. But when they are confronted by the police, they turn into the cowards that they are! Hiding behind masks and unleashing terror on others, they can’t cope when the strong arm of the law comes down on them! Look at this “lady” (and I use that word very loosely) who is balling like a baby and crying for her “service dog”.

The left will either not read these type stories, not believe the stories, or say its Trumps fault. The left will never believe anything that doesn't echo through the Trump hating main stream media.

From what I hear, the Democrat officials are demanding tax payer funded private security after they defund the police.

I would really enjoy seeing some of these ANTIFA morons try to deface the tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington VA. I have no doubt how that would turn out.

Here, someone simply tried to get close to the tomb, ignoring the rules and going beyond the designated area. He came close to paying for his mistake with his life as the guard chambered a round and gave a verbal warning.

Thanks for posting. You are absolutely correct, this is very serious stuff at the tomb. My uncle was a guard there in the 50's, he later trained these guys.

I have a picture in my office of him, behind queen Elizabeth when she visited there in 1958.

I hope the crazy left wing anarchists never try anything there. I believe every veteran in the US would come down on them hard. Including myself. I am getting so fed up with the punks in this country, that I have to stop listening to the news. I believe sometimes that If things keep getting worse, we will be forced to take up arms against the fascist anarchists, and set them back a few generations.

I believe the time for taking up action is much nearer than you think. 2 or 3 years at best.

If the loonies attack Arlington, I'll be there. It's a couple hours from my home.
