GOP Rep. Tiffany Calls for WI Gov. To Resign After State Senator Assaulted During Riot

Protests in Madison, Wisconsin got out of hand Tuesday night as State Senator Tim Carpenter of Milwaukee was assaulted and two statues were torn down by rioters. The chaotic events at the capitol led to U.S. Representative Tom Tiffany, R-WI, to call for the Governor Evers’ resignation.

“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,” Sen. Carpenter told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers said this assault “should never be tolerated.”

“I want to be clear: violence against any person — whether in the middle of the street in broad daylight, at home trying to sleep, going for a run, or happening upon a protest as was the case last night — is wrong,” Evers said in a thread posted to Twitter.

That wasn’t enough for U.S. Rep Tiffany, as he released a statement this morning calling for Evers to step down.

“Americans are alarmed and disgusted by what has now become nearly a month of sustained lawlessness, bedlam, rioting and violence,” Tiffany said in the statement. “Radical extremists and their enablers – including Governor Evers – continue to refer to these outrageous mob tactics as ‘protest.’ They are not. Property damage, destruction and physical assault are not legitimate forms of political discourse. They are criminal acts.”

Tiffany said the attacks were personal and demanded Evers put a cease to the rioting.

“The governor has demonstrated time and time again that he is unwilling to prevent these unrelenting attacks on our safety, our property and our way of life,” Tiffany added. “His silence is deafening, and his inaction is unacceptable. If he cannot or will not regain control of the streets, he should resign immediately. Enough is enough.”

Stacy Abrams: ‘No such thing as heartbeat at 6 weeks’, ‘manufactured’ for men to ‘take control of a woman’s body’

“There is no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks,” Abrams claimed during an event at the Ray Charles Performing Arts Center in Atlanta last week. “It is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have the right to take control of a woman’s body.”

As National Review reports, even her own man-hating rhetoric is antithetical to the website of Planned Parenthood which said a “very basic beating heart and circulatory system develop” during the fifth to sixth week of pregnancy.

Planned Parenthood later amended its website to more closely reflect pro-abortion messaging against heartbeat laws, which ban abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected. Now the site says a “part of the embryo starts to show cardiac activity” during that time.

Abrams is running for governor in Georgia in a rematch against incumbent Governor Brian Kemp. Abrams lost to Kemp in 2018 by more than 54,000 votes. Additionally, Abrams has never concededto Kemp and has claimed the 2018 election was “stolen from Georgians.”

Abrams words were to suggest that Georgia’s heartbeat law shouldn’t be referred to as the “Fetal Heartbeat Bill.” Her reasoning? Because “that’s medically false, biologically a lie.”

When The View co-host Alyssa Farah asked Abrams “Do you think there should be any legal limits on abortion, such as the third trimester or viability?” Abrams responded: “I believe that abortion is a medical decision, not a political decision…Arbitrary politically-defined timelines are deeply problematic because they ignore the reality of medical and physiological issues.”

“Abortion is a medical decision, not a political decision … The limit should not be made by politicians who don’t understand basic biology or apparently basic morality,” she added.

Kemp is up 6.6 percentage points in RCP polling average over Abrams.
