Michigan Pro-Union Demonstrator Punches Fox News Contributor in Face

Michigan’s new “right to work” law is bad news for unions, and they aren’t taking it lightly. At a pro-union protest Tuesday, they attacked a tent set up by a conservative organization, Americans for Prosperity, and when Fox News contributor and conservative comedian Steven Crowder attempted to intervene he received four punches to the face, giving him a chipped tooth and bloody forehead.

Fox News has repeatedly replayed the track, and in a day it received about a million hits on YouTube. The Fox coverage claims he was “viciously assaulted,” by “left-wing thugs.”

Certainly things were ugly to begin with, as pro-union demonstrators hailed the reporters with profanity, screams, and demands, with one man telling Crowder to “get the f— out of my face!” As Democratic Rep Douglas Geiss had warned on Tuesday, “There will be blood, there will be repercussions.”

There is some question as to who the attacker actually is. He wore an International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers jacket and was verbally fighting with a defender of the tent when Crowder placed himself between the two.

“As of yesterday, Steven Crowder has not yet filed a police report, and certainly if he did, Michigan State Police will investigate,” said spokeswoman Tiffany Brown to MLive.com. It seems, instead, that Fox News and Crowder intend instead to play up the violence and insensibility of the pro-union crowd.

    The talking heads guarding the inhabitants of Bullsh*t Mountain from rejoining the world of the sane just won’t budge an inch will they? Fox News is a propaganda machine which dumbs down America by the day through disinformation and their slanted agendas.

    @Brandt-Disinformation and slanted agenda?! Really?! You must be a liberal because typically they respond with a negative connotation. Just like the union worker that sucker punched Crowder in the face and when asked a question the union worker responds, “Get…out of my face?! Liberals can’t handle the truth without taking offense thus resorting to violence. Crowder also said that he will not press charges if the union worker is willing to fight fair and square with a legal referee. Has the worker accepted his offer? IMO he won’t because straight up he’s a coward. Cowards sucker punch! Slanted agenda? OMG! Yup this was Crowders plan to go in and get sucker punched and spread lies and create viscious attacks? Come on what a ridiculous conception!Liberals are perfectly capable on their own to twist their own propaganda. Not conservatives! We report truth! Libs fib;)Then you have Geiss a democRAT that threatens “there will be blood if RTW gets signed into law…..!? This in simple text tells me that democRATS can go and be violent (because the cry babies cant have their own way) but Republicans must play by the rules?! Kudos to Crowder for having a backbone which more conservatives NEED to demonstrate MORE 😉
