Posted on 12/20/2012 2:01:11 PM PST by smoothsailing
Last week conservative activist and comedian Steven Crowder was punched repeatedly in the face by a Michigan union member and threatened with murder in Lansing during violent protests against right-to-work legislation, which was signed into law by Governor Rich Snyder. Since the incident happened, leftist media outlets have accused Crowder of selectively editing video to make the fight look like the fault of a violent union mob rather than himself, who they say started it. They also said Crowder deserved the attacks while failing to condemn the union destruction of an Americans for Prosperity tent, which was torn down with women and elderly volunteers inside. Now, new unedited video proves Crowder's story and serves as an indictment of the violent union mob we saw last week. Chants of "f*ck this tent" and "take the tent" are shown in the video in addition to the guy who eventually punched Crowder calling him a "f*cking rat" and a "rat son of a b*tch."
Warning: bad language.

Isn’t it supremely appropriate that the thug has a FIST design on his sweat shirt?
You should sue MSNBC and whomever else accused you falsely. Even if you don’t win, there will be huge pressure from their corporate higher-ups to settle the lawsuit. It makes them think twice about outright lying the next time around, so you’d be doing conservatism a favor.
I watched that video on Townhall a bit ago and it really shows those union thugs for the lowlife they are. They’re darned brave when they’re part of the mob.
Telegraphing his punches?
The chanting about “f the tent” and “tear down the tent” should leave no doubt about who tore down the tent.
And what is it with leftist goons and their infernal drumbeating?
That’s all nice and good but the fact is that we won and Michigan is a RTW state.
Maybe so but if that big ass attacked me he would be in a body bag.
As disgusting and wrong as the Holder/Panther thing was, keep in mind that in that case the Panthers destroyed no property and punched no one in the face.
This Michigan thing involves multiple events and many people and is different from the Panther thing in many ways.
No one should have any doubt about them tearing down the tent after that video, not even union thugs.
I guess their goal is to make as much noise as possible whether it be beating on drums, cans, repeating filthy chants or whatever. They definitely have a language problem, I’d hate to try and count the number of times their favorite phrase FU was used in that video.
That scrawny little turkey with the smirk on his face at the end chasing Crowder around was hilarious, he’s fortunate Crowder didn’t break him in half. lol
I thought it was funny when he said; "Of course you have a right to be here, get the f out of my state".
That's real union brain power on display!!! :o)
Can anyone tell how “Tony” got on the ground just before he got up and started swinging at Crowder? Whatever happened was mostly off screen. I didn’t see anyone swinging.
There is no video evidence that he was pushed by anyone.
I believe Crowder stated he may have tripped over a tent peg.
He might have just tripped over his own feet.
A few times in the videos he can be seen moving around. He doesn’t look too steady on his feet.
Could be drunk, or just some physical disability that makes him clumsy.
I think that’s right. It looked strange, as if he went down on his own. He might have thought Crowder tripped him and then he came up swinging.
Drunk might do it.
