A follow-up to JD’s post from this morning.

The screenshot actually says it all.

Let me translate this for you.

Ha! Steven Crowder says he was assaulted! That’s a laugh! Especially when he is provoking “peaceful union people” by talking to them!

Video emerges of assault.

Um. Er.

. . . .

HEAVILY EDITED!!!!!!!1!!1!!

Talk about adding insult to injury.

Maybe he didn’t share the details of the assault with the UNION cops standing nearby out of a rational fear of further assault by THEM?

The question I have is this:

Would the union thug or thugs EVEN THINK of beating Steven Crowder if Mr. Chowder had a CCW on himself?

FNC has covered this because Crowder is one of theirs. Have any of the other stations even mentioned the assault? The video does show union thugs acting like union thugs...but if the only people who see it are those who watch Fox, it’s mostly people who already know what to expect from union activists.

the answer to your question in #3 is a resounding YES!!! i’ve been there, and in know whereof i speak. once you take out your firearm you are in the wrong, adn they will do whatever it takes to get you to do something stupid, like point it at anyone. then you go down. they ruin you, and your career, etc...
and if they think you’re armed, they will grab for it, even trying to reach into your pockets. i’ve had to endure this treatment. thee last thing you want these people to know is that you are carrying a gun.

Just LOOKING at the gun is ENOUGH to scare away the thugs.

"FNC has covered this because Crowder is one of theirs. Have any of the other stations even mentioned the assault?"

I read somewhere that the frothing-at-the-mouth lunatic, Ed Schultz, at MSNBS talked about it... to say that it was "faked", of course. That's about it.

Google "News" also apparently doesn't have a single story about the assault.

Well, actually Crowder or one of his companions did have a concealed weapon. That’s the only reason the assault stopped, because the union thugs saw the gun.

Might as well beat them with tire irons as talk to them, the liberal press will cover it the same either way.

Visualizing a legion of conservative counter protestors all highly skilled with bo staffs...hmmm...interesting image.

absolutely not. beleive me, i been there. i had to carry a loaded gun through a picket line. they know that if you take one step out of line, they will ruin you. they WANT you to take that gun out - then YOU are arrested and go to jail and they’re the ‘poor victims’. i had to grab the holster with both hands to keep them from pulling it out. they WANT you to shoot them so they can sure the pants off of you.
carrying a gun ios a double edged sword. trust me, you do NOT want to do this.

I love the fact that ABC, NBC, CBS - HAVE NOT SHOWN ANY OF THIS ON THEIR NETWORKS.

We know why .. they hate FOX News, and they’re happy to see any person associated with FOX get beaten up.

Funny, somebody should remind them of the story about “... and then they came for me”.

Eventually, the unions will turn on the media too!

I wonder the same. I would certainly do all I could to get the scumbag arrested and charged with assault at the very least.

There is no good reason to let the goon off the hook.

As I said, they simply need to just LOOK at that gun and that is ALL, they will run away for certain, let alone play the “victim card game.”

Overlooked in this scenario is the POLICE are Union members.. THUGGS?.. maybe, even probably..

Some of the thuggs may have been firefighters.. <— also Union..

if enough people stand up to them, make sure they are charged and prosecuted, they’ll become more know for what they ARE rather than what they SAY they are.

If Crowder doesn’t press charges against this goon, he’s a bigger coward than the goon that attacked him.

Steve was interviewed by WJR's Frank Beckman (Detroit) this morning and boy did he give a dissin' to "Tony", the thug that assaulted him.

He said the thug has two choices: Meet Steven in a man to man cage match or Steven's going to prosecute him to the fullest extend of the law.

If I'm not mistaken, I think Steve even offered up $9,000 for charity if the coward comes forward and accepts the fight.

Steve also said it would be a refereed cage match style fight..........
