On his Fox show, Wednesday night, Hannity pit Steven Crowder against a union supporter who said Crowder deserved what he got when he was sucker punched several times in the face by an enraged union thug. His guest, Andy Sullivan of Blue Collar Corner, charged that Crowder incited the violence by pushing the thug down, which is a narrative that I’m guessing the left has latched on to, since the thug had gone down right before he lunged at Crowder, throwing punches.
As should be obvious, however, Crowder wasn’t there for a physical fight – one guy against a crowd of hundreds. His arms were up in the air most of the time, to show that he was peaceful.
“He did go down, he was attacking a tent!” Crowder exclaimed.
“It was a melee!”, he explained, “everyone was grabbing and pulling, and trying to keep the tent from being torn down….”
The guy was either pushed to the ground – or lost balance and fell – during the scuffle between the Right to Work supporters defending the tent, and the union goons trying to knock it down. In other words – defensive actions vs offensive actions….It’s unclear to me whether or not Crowder had a hand in knocking him off balance, while he trying to keep a tent with women and children inside from being knocked down. Crowder doesn’t seem to know, himself – like he said, “it was a melee.”
