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.
