Another Breitbart Fake Outrage Bites the Dust: Crowder Admits He Shoved Union Members

Today in the fake right wing scandal we'll call UnionThug-Gate, we learn that provocateur Steven Crowder was not just standing there minding his own business when he was punched in the face outside the Michigan Capitol -- he was shoving union members.

And how do we know this? From Crowder's own words, in this smug, self-aggrandizing interview with Canada's Fox News imitation, Sun News. The thing about dimwits like Crowder is that if you let them keep talking long enough, they'll eventually out themselves. They can't help it.

The pertinent section begins at about 4 minutes in, as the interviewer rants about thugs and asks why the police didn't arrest them (maybe because Crowder never filed a police report?):

"I've been very honest about this, the fact that as they started ransacking the tent, yeah, me and some men went out there ... and we didn't get violent with them but we did try to push them off the tent. That is true. We tried to push them off the tent."

That's right, he's admitting on television that he was the original aggressor in this incident, but edited his video to remove the part where he was pushing union members. Idiot. Another Breitbart invented outrage bites the dust.
