Sick: Violence apologists blame Steven Crowder for assault by union thug

Why yes. Yes they have. Shortly after Steven Crowder tweeted about being viciously assaulted by a union goon, conservatives jokingly suggested that lefties would find a way to blame Crowder:

The thing is, they weren’t far off. In the wake of the attack on Crowder, lefty loons are going after him. Why blame the criminal when you can blame the victim?

And don’t forget the Koch brothers!!!11!

Foul-mouthed liberal Fox News contributer Bob Beckel doesn’t understand what the fuss is about:

Feckless “conservative” Matt Lewis isn’t terribly broken up, either. In fact, he’s waving his conspiracy card:

Ridiculous.

Oh no?

The tolerant Left, ladies and gents.

    I agree with Matt Lewis. Let’s see the uncut video.

      Would an “uncut” video (we’ll take their word for it for the sake of argument) excuse physical violence in your mind?

    If you seek to understand how it is that America is so broken, everything is right here in the tweets recorded above. It is now possible to capture a crime on video from every angle, and have the event produce not regret on the party of the perpetrators, but self-righteous anger at the notion that rules apply to them too. In essence, the message is that violence is fine if aimed at conservatives. This is what corruption looks like. Very ugly, and bound to get worse.

      pairadimes nailed it completely.

    Long past time we banned people from owning fists.

  • Karl Morey

    So does that mean I have full license to jack someone in the face when they tell me that Obama won the election? Hey, he/she provoked me by saying something I don’t agree with! His words ran in to my ears and caused damage, so I’m entitled to cause damage right back!

  • Ranadicus

    I think my favorites are the ones that criticize his journalistic integrity. Because that’s something the left has always cared deeply about. Never mind that he isn’t a journalist, apparanly they don’t know the difference on the left.

  • Lin Jarvis

    This is true. I saw Crowder using his face to hit that guy several times. Hee hee.

  • ZoriahShepard

    So if there’s an ‘uncut video’ released and it shows the union members starting to tear down that tent which had people inside and Crowder and all trying to stop them – what’s it going to matter? Those same people above spewing vitriol are still going to blame Crowder for getting his face in the way of someone’s fist and the union will still be a victim.

    I’m a union member because I have to be. If I didn’t have to be I wouldn’t. I know I could keep my job based upon my merit and capability as an employee. The unions have become a crutch for a lot of people. Crutches are supposed to be temporary. But some people would rather run roughshod over those who want a choice to make sure they don’t get a voice.

    Here’s more footage. We can see a bit more from this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RNbL3_zhRWQ

    The hard-hat guy wasn’t yelling a death threat at Crowder. It was “He’s got a gun!” to some other guy (that he pushes). So that part is a dud.

    Also, we can see from this that Crowder has selectively edited out the part just before the guy hits him. As well, the guy was clearly on the ground. What? He was taking a nap and just decided to get up and hit Crowder? Gtfo. Why didn’t Crowder include the whole footage of what happened just before he got smoked and then went crying home?

    Anyhow, Crowder says he’s going to show unedited footage later on Hannity. I’ll believe it when I see it.

      How, pray tell, did Crowder manipulate the footage to make it appear as though he were assaulted?

  • detroit19

    Thinking that these ‘apologists’ are the same ones who blame a ‘short skirt wearing’ young woman for rape, a person who defends themselves against a ‘poor, misguided, driven to a life of crime by ‘the man’, young person of (insert your ethnicity), an uneducated, again due to the ‘man’, youth, a ‘you owe me’ because I have no education, again the fault of the ‘man’, it’s Tuesday…blah, blah, blah. Born and raised in Detroit, though no longer a citizen of Michigan, for obvious reasons. GREAT job, Governor Snyder! Don’t you, or any other voice of reason, back down! Your path is the only way back to insanity/reality! ‘They’ are not the party of the people, anymore!

    Y’know…Communists do tend to have a history of violence, like in 1871, 1917, 1918, 1945, 1948, 1949, 1959, and so on. Just saying…

    Matt Lewis said, “There’s no excuse for hitting Crowder. But what provoked this violence? I’d like to see the full, unedited, video.”

    Me too, Matt,

    I suppose it was the tents fault for pissing off the union people also, so they tore it down.

  • Christopher Mooney

    Steve Crower was quite obviously paid, by the Koch Brothers, to go to a left wing/union event, and to try and incite a violent reaction. He was working for American’s For Prosperity – the right wing activist group owned by the brothers.

    Until you step into the real world, and have a look around, don’t expect to ever win another presidency.

    I’d say the vast majority of Americans would say that if a right wing, republican activist, goes to a union event, with a camera crew, working for the Koch Brothers – he’s doing so to try and upset/annoy people there.

    If he went into a bar, and treated people like that, he’d get hit
