In Which Steven Crowder Works Really Hard at Getting Punched in the Face
So, useless right wing pseudo-comedian Steven Crowder waded into the demonstration outside the Michigan Capitol yesterday, and started goading the already pissed off union members who had just seen their livelihood stripped away by a dishonest bunch of Republican 1 percenters, spewing anti-union talking points at them and trying to get someone to take a swing at him.
To no one’s surprise, Crowder got what he wanted, and of course he had someone there to record it all: Steven Crowder, Fox News Contributor, Punched During Right-to-Work Protests.
And it was coordinated with Fox News, for maximum propaganda effect:
Vid will be be up by 3:15 with more exclusive footage released on @seanhannity later. You’ve never seen anything like it, trust me.

Naturally, the entire right wing blogosphere is shrieking in unison about “violent union thugs” today. I have to say, this wingnut stunt did take an enormous amount of … what do you call it? Bravery? No. Stupidity? Not exactly. Balls? Not really.
He’s lucky he got out of the crowd alive. I absolutely do not condone the union member who punched Crowder in the face, if it really was a union member. But in the words of Chris Rock, I understand.
