    The latest massacres happened in Oregon and Colorado.

    And, as has been pointed out ad nauseum, Jared Loughner wasn't a "rightie".

    While we're on the subject, thiugh, JFK was assassinated by a leftist.

    His statement does not mean he provoked a fight.

    Secondly, you have no idea if the video is heavily edited or not. You want to say edited, sure, go ahead.
    It is after all intended to show who these thugs truly are, which it does achieve. Of course editing is essential to time constraints and to highlight the important parts.
    And you might want to watch the video that was in the OP's article as it shows what can be seen of what happened w/o editing.

    Crowder said he never suggested the men needed soap or could use a bath....."

    Exactly.
    And how do you know what this guy is saying isn't fabricated?
    Because it supports your view?
    Does he have video to support his claims? What was that? He doesn't?
    Next!

    Here let me provide for you, what you already provided, to show that what you allege and what he said, are two different things.

    "I went out here to prove the left for who they truly are. Certainly, these union thugs. And I’ve achieved that."

    Gee. One possibility could be to see how he was going to react to the man swinging on him and missing.

    I full understand the concept. You however do not! Here is a link!

    Hey if a snotty reporter from the rightwing propaganda machine wants to pop off to a bunch of men then cry because he gets his ass whipped. He deserves it!
    Really? More hyperbolic bs! Is that all you have?

    And this is what happens when a person knows not what they are talking about. FACT! You are wrong. He is A Contributor, not a reporter.
    Nor is there any evidence to even suggest he was he insulting a couple of people.

    Another fine example of not knowing what one is talking about. Both false.

    Highly edited? Verified even. iLOL NOT!

    However to your real point if employers would have treated worker right and tried not to screw every nickle out of their employees Unions would not be needed. America has a long history of business owners of doing that!
    iLOL
    Holy ****. at first you are calling Crowder a Fox Reporter and now you are mimicking another person and saying he is affiliated with Breitbart.
    Why don't you learn what you are talking about before speaking?

    And just to throw you a boney, try PJTV, as it is predominately displayed in the video. Doh!



    But since you seem to like Breitbart.
    Here is a report from them.
    Lansing Union Attack Victim: Assailant Wore Guy Fawkes-Like 'Devil Mask'
    Local Lansing Michigan hot dog vendor Clint Tarver was catering for Americans For Prosperity during the right-to-work demonstrations at the State Capitol on Tuesday, when two men rushed into the tent. In a video interview with Breitbart News, Clint claims one of the men wore a "Devil Mask."
    ...
    Tarver also says he was called racial epithets by other union attackers, including the "N" word and "Uncle Tom." Tarver says he's never been called such things in his 17 years as a hot dog vendor. His wife expressed her digust that union workers stood around with their hands in their pockets while Tarver attempted to pick up his catering equipment and other items.

    Then there is the real world
    Selective Editing by Fox News Contributor Revealed by Fox News

    On Wednesday, however, questions were raised about the way in which Mr. Crowder had edited his video. After speaking with a witness to the events, the liberal blogger Chris Savage argued on his site Eclectablog that the video edit was misleading:

    As Mr. Savage noted, raw video of the scuffle over the tent shot by another camera showed that the man who punched Mr. Crowder was engaged in an angry discussion with a defender of the tent when the comedian stepped in between them. Within seconds the fight broke out.

    A section of the Fox News broadcast preserved by the Web site Mediaite shows that Mr. Hannity’s producers at Fox News started the clip five seconds earlier than Mr. Crowder did. What the extra footage reveals is the man who punched Mr. Crowder being knocked to the ground seconds before and then getting up and taking a swing at the comedian.
    For those who bother to go and read the 'librul' NYTimes piece, you will notice a bit about union workers "ripping down" a tent put up by AFP - for another take on the incident there is this from Eclectablog
    As it turns out, American for Prosperity (AFP) themselves were responsible for at least one of the tents coming down. Tom Duckworth watched one of the folks that had been in the AFP tent go around and loosen the straps on the tent. According to Duckworth, “the stakes came down from the INSIDE.”
    “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”
    ~ James Madison, letter to Edward Livingston, July 10, 1822

    It does not show the guy getting knocked to the ground.
    It shows the guy falling to the ground. It can not be seen why. Which is why I directed others to view the video in the OP's article.


    And frankly to call it selective editing is false.
    If Crowder is not responsible for the guy falling to the ground, then showing just the guy assaulting Crowder is the factual evidence, and not selective editing.
