Steven Crowder Releases Unedited Video Of Union Thug Attack [Warden]

The left basically had two responses to the videotaped assault of Steven Crowder at the Lansing union protest:

1) Crowder deserved it for provoking an angry crowd. (The unspoken rule being that leftists are fully within their rights to punch someone in the face when confronted by words that upset them.)

2) The video was "selectively edited." Their favorite denial mechanism since Breitbart and James O'keefe burned them with the ACORN sting.

Crowder has now released the full video of the incident. And while it's true that it appears someone tossed that sucker punching union fattie to the ground prior to his attack on Crowder, it doesn't look like Crowder was the one who did it.

What is clear is that Mr. Sucker Punch was spoiling for a fight prior to the incident. The video clearly shows him following Crowder around, sticking a sign in his face, and cursing him out repeatedly.

The video also shows the union mob tearing down the Americans For Prosperity tent.You can see at least two women flee the tent as it happens. It appears that union slobs, in addition to being fat, lazy and stupid, also have no problem assaulting women.

As for Crowder, he comes off looking clean. He does not "provoke" anyone unless you define provocation as calmly disagreeing with a crowd of protesters.

All the provocation comes from the mob on the other side. At one point, Crowder is completely surrounded by angry, aggressive union members shouting profanities at him. Even as these guys push into his space using threatening words and gestures, he puts his hands up palms out to show non-aggression.

In fact, Crowder never raises his voice until they tear down the tent. That's when someone tosses the union member to the ground. It's not clear who did it, but it appears to be the man next to Crowder. I think what happened was that the confused, enraged, and likely alcohol addled union goon just came up swinging at whoever was nearest.

Crowder did an admirable job of protecting himself. This is what I said in the Overnight Thread about the incident after it happened.

I've watched the attack on Steven Crowder a couple of times and noticed something: Check out the :40 mark when the fat old drunk gets a little off balance swinging those haymakers.

Crowder quickly closes the distance and ties up the guy's right arm. Then he moves in and begins to clinch.

Closing with the guy was smart. By doing so, he protected himself from further punches. It's hard to hurt someone when they're clinching with you. That's why boxers do it when they get rocked.

Once inside, he could have easily tossed this fucko on his head with a hip throw, gotten a body lock and tripped him, or taken him down with a double leg. But Crowder couldn't risk taking it to the ground with that hostile crowd all around.

I'm guessin Crowder understands a thing or two about fighting. That fat union goon? Not so much. Any decent fighter would get of two or three accurate strikes by the time he finished one of those wild, off-balanced haymakers.

Turns out I was right. Here's what Crowder said in the comments at Hotair.

Indeed. And notice how he kept his hands up and open…clinched and tangled up the goons when possible.

I’m impressed.

Would love to put on some headgear and pillow-gloves and spar with the dude.

Got a feeling he’d take me easy…inside three rounds.

Haha thanks. I’d actually love to. I’m a grappler, not a striker though. That’s why I clinched to defend, but immediately realized that if I’d have defended myself, the mob would have killed me.

Yup. Smart. Crowder would've beat that old man's ass if there weren't a mob of other angry, overweight goons on the verge of pulmonary embolism there to back him up.

But that's just how these loutish pigs roll, isn't it?
