Ever since the protests connected to George Floyd, violence and destruction have erupted across the country. From week to week, we’ve seen “activists” target government buildings and historical monuments.
In the Madison, rioters were destroying property outside the State Capitol.
Tim Carpenter, an openly gay Democrat state senator, tried to reason with the mob and capture what they were doing on video. This is what happened:
Violent rioters in Wisconsin reportedly attacked an openly gay Democrat state senator on Tuesday night as they engaged in the destruction of property outside the Wisconsin State Capitol…
Carpenter told The Washington Post that he might have suffered a concussion and a fractured nose from the attack along with a bruises all over his body.
Why it matters:
From the start, it appeared that the Democrats were on the side of demonstrators, even those who demanded the destruction of statues.
It appeared the goals of these protesters were the same as theirs. In fact, numerous Democrats (including members of Joe Biden’s campaign) paid to bail out rioters and activists.
Yet this episode suggests those behind the violence and destruction have very little to do with Democrats, or at least the Democrats don’t have a handle on the situation.
It looks like the dog is biting the hand that feeds it.
Many believe what first appeared to be a movement to end police brutality has become an all-out war against everything the country stands for.
Protestors have been tearing down statues—not of Confederate figures—but of American leaders, even some who helped end slavery.
Despite this, Democrats claim to support the movement. Seattle Mayor Durkan refused to break up the anarchists’ “occupy protest,” until it was too late. Democrats continually refuse to call out the vandalism and chaos.
It raises the question: why do Democrats still embrace something that is clearly out of control? These “protesters” attacked a Democrat leader, a gay man.
Clearly, they did not consider him an ally. Perhaps it’s time for the Democrats to join Republicans in denouncing this violence?
- Vandalism against national monuments continues.
- In Madison, a Democrats state senator was allegedly assaulted by protesters destroying property.
- The violence against a liberal is raising the concern that this movement is out of control.
