Protesters at the Wisconsin State Capitol Tuesday night brutally beat up a gay progressive state senator who was taking a picture of them.
Protesters at the Wisconsin State Capitol tore down two statues commemorating progressive ideals Tuesday night. The first was Forward, a statue cast by female sculptor Jean Pond Miner in 1893 displaying a female figure as an “allegory of devotion and progress,” according to the Wisconsin Historical Society. The second was a statue of the Union colonel Hans Christian Heg, who fought and died in the Civil War. Protesters decapitated Heg’s statue and threw the torso into a nearby lake. Rioters also broke windows and lobbed Molotov cocktails into state buildingsFree Beacon Wisconsin Dem Lawmaker Brutally Beaten by Protesters
