Wisconsin State Senator Tim Carpenter has posted video of the moments before he was “punched and kicked in the head” at June 23 protests in Madison, Wisconsin. A local journalist said he called an ambulance when Carpenter collapsed shortly after.
The senator said he is currently locked in his office at the State Capitol in Madison after he was attacked by “8-10 people.”
In the video the senator posted, several people run towards the cameraman and appear to knock the camera down before the footage cuts out.

They feel emboldened to do this because they get cover in mainstream press & usually face no legal consequences.
I believe this is State Senator Tim Carpenter. Minutes earlier he told us the protesters assaulted him. Then he collapsed walking towards the Capitol. We called paramedics. An ambulance is here now. pic.twitter.com/uUSdKyQ1hp

Leftist ideology always turns on its supporters in the end.
It is evil, and you can never trust evil, to be honest.
Our founders knew how dangerous and fickle the mob was, which is why they created a republic and not a democracy. The mob destroys everything eventually.
Leftist activists converted the protests into riots, looting, and violence, and Democratic leaders refused to condemn it and instead fanned the flames lit by the organized mob. They have joined the movement to topple monuments and erase all other unpleasant aspects of American history — as if they never occurred.
This is nothing new for the Democratic Party. It was shocking that its key figures dared to publicly support some of the certifiably insane provisions of the Green New Deal — provisions too fantastical for even infants to endorse. It was surreal that some of their leading presidential candidates openly supported the abolition of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. But this widespread move to defund the police takes the insanity to French Revolution-crazy levels.
How can parents not fear for their kids’ futures? How can an entire political party give itself over to a lawless mob? How can it condone the systematic suppression of political speech by Hollywood, the corporate left, and social media giants?
