    I am not defending an act of violence, nor am I saying that Crowder got what he deserved. I'm saying that he's distorting the incident to create a narrative that didn't exist. He went in to report that union protestors are violent, mindless thugs trying to intimidate their employers, and unfortunately for our country, he was able to do that thanks to circumstances and somebody worked up enough to throw punches.

    This is dishonest and dangerous journalism. This is why so many Americans hate each other right now. Because "journalists" are lying, choosing to incite hatred in order to make money rather than telling the truth and having to make it in journalism the honest way. Throwing a punch (or three) can kill a person (had he been Kermit Washington). Doing what journalists are doing these days contributes to a horrific string of awful, awful things happening in this country. Neither side is to be defended, bottom line.

    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.

    Didn’t Fox News Contributor Steven Crowder Just Confirm He Started Fight With Union Protester?

    So in your world stopping people from "ransacking a tent" by pushing them away makes assault ok. This is why our county is ****ed, people can't use common sense because they are to bent on ideology. In this case the jackass had no right to take down the tent and had no right to punch anyone that stopped him. Seems our country is being lost to tiny minds willing to justify almost any kind of **** behavior by their side.

    Crowder is a lying piece of ****. There's a reason that union guy wasn't arrested, Chowder knows he initiated contact and now confessed it. He pushed the guy to the ground and then got what was coming to him.

    And it can be seen that I clearly understood which video she was talking about, which is why I kept directing her and even you to the one that wasn't edited at the time period in question. Do you not understand that?



    We are talking about the video in the OP.
    The video that Moot provided is the same that I previously provided for different reasons. It is not what we are talking about.

    And it was clear that it was not what we have been speaking about as I mentioned exactly what we are speaking about how many times now? 8, 9, 10 times or so? Once specifically to you.


    Do you not understand why I keep correcting folks and directing them to the video that isn't edited at the portioning question?

    So why are you ignoring that to which you have been directed? Because it proves you wrong? Why?

    Follow the link and watch the video.
    No I watched the video she posted that is what I am going by that makes your points moot. That is something she has pointed out more than a few times. I have to ask if this is such a simple assult why havent the police filed charges or the dumbass the went out looking for a fight. My guess is there is alot more that went on

    Earth to truckstop, earth to truckstop, come in truckstop: the man wasn't ransacking the tent. He was just standing there and Crowder put his hands on him and shoved him to the ground. The man got back and punched him in the mouth. Crowder was got what was he looking for. Thats the real world truckstop...over

    That is a dishonest claim for which you have been proven wrong about more than a dozen times now. No wonder your screenname is moot...much like your arguments here...

    Oh stop it. Crowder has already admitted he shoved the guy. Give an idiot enough rope and he'll hang himself which exactly what Crowder did during that Canadian news interview. The game is over and you're on the losing side....as usual.

    It's the same short end of the stick people continually get when they continually believe Fox is actually telling the truth.
