Last week conservative activist and comedian Steven Crowder was punched repeatedly in the face by a Michigan union member and threatened with murder in Lansing during violent protests against right-to-work legislation, which was signed into law by Governor Rich Snyder. Since the incident happened, leftist media outlets have accused Crowder of selectively editing video to make the fight look like the fault of a violent union mob rather than himself, who they say started it. They also said Crowder deserved the attacks while failing to condemn the union destruction of an Americans for Prosperity tent, which was torn down with women and elderly volunteers inside. Now, new unedited video proves Crowder's story and serves as an indictment of the violent union mob we saw last week. Chants of "f*ck this tent" and "take the tent" are shown in the video in addition to the guy who eventually punched Crowder calling him a "f*cking rat" and a "rat son of a b*tch."
