A “woke” activist got a rude awakening after physically assaulting a supporter of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in Iowa.
DeSantis was speaking at the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines alongside Gov. Kim Reynolds.
While DeSantis was speaking on the stage, a leftist woman launched into a physical attack against one of the Republican presidential candidate’s supporters in the crowd.
As the man tried to walk away, the wokester pursued him while grabbing him and accusing him of assaulting her.
However, unbeknown to the blue-haired agitator, an Iowa state trooper witnessed the attack and dropped the hammer.
Video of the incident shows the woman, who is wearing a “b*tches get stuff done” t-shirt, throwing punches at one individual.
A member of the Iowa State Patrol began to advise the “woke” protester, seemingly urging her to refrain from disorderly conduct.
She falsely claims that she was the one that was assaulted while filming the confrontation on her cell phone.
The cop then breaks the bad news by informing the leftist that he saw the incident before threatening to throw her out of the event.

The account that shared the video indicated that there more activists who had infiltrated the crowd.
Some of the “woke” protesters were moved to the back of the crowd by law enforcement.
Another video shared by a leader of Students for DeSantis indicated that the event had been picketed by protesters in its caption.

The agitators yelled out at DeSantis as he engaged with fair attendees in the area.
“Go back to Florida!” one protester shouted at the Republican governor.
DeSantis ignored the agitators and, instead, focused on introducing himself to potential voters in the state’s first-in-the-nation caucus.
