Fox News Contributor Repeatedly Punched By Michigan Pro-Union Protestors Tearing Down AFP Tent

3:30 pm, December 11th, 2012
New video has surfaced showing Fox News contributor Steven Crowder
being repeatedly punched while trying to stop Michigan pro-union
protestors from tearing down a conservative tent outside the state’s
capitol.
Earlier this afternoon, we reported that pro-union protestors in Michigan tore down an Americans for Prosperity tent while rallying against the state’s new right-to-work law.


Crowder was apparently on the scene to conduct man-on-the-street interviews, when things seemed to have gotten quite tense.


One protester cursed at him as he attempted to ask a question;
another grabbed Crowder and punched him in the head a few times. Later
on, as a tent was being torn down, Crowder was again punched.

  • So glad I live in a right to work state. In the past, there was a legitimate need for unions. Socialist government regulations have rendered unions obsolete. Unions have devolved into gangs of thugs. I was in a union once. I know.

    • @countingstars "Seriosuly", sir, you display the illiterate incompetence that motivates employers to pay you as little as possible.

      I have marketable abilities, so I get offered good paying jobs which I have to turn down because I'd rather work for myself.

      Union heads such as yourself that feel entitled to their job and do not apply themselves to acquiring marketable skills wouldn't understand that. Blame your union, it trained you to be a slacker.

    • @countingstars Yes, this is the beauty of capitalism. If they aren't paying people enough to accommodate their pursuit of happiness (yes this means living wages), they will not attract qualified employees. Capitalism works both ways (for the employer AND the employee) you ignorant fuck. Of course throughout history is has been abused, but usually this is a result of one party taking competition out of the equation. hence the need for regulatory anti-trust laws.

Yes their wages are high but realistically it is probably the bar at which all our wages should be compared to if the economic model was working correctly and consistent with the standards that some of our previous generations have been fortunate enough to have had. Private sector wages have stagnated for a very long time while the cost of living- food, housing, etc, has gone up and also to account for all the new debt accumulated through credit- More..

Workers do need protection and that is the main reason for the unions. If you own your own then unions and their wages eat into your profits and no employer likes loosing profits. I guess one has to realize that happy employees fairly compensated will not have a need for a union.

We did some jobs in California and the unions slashed our tires, damaged our projects, made death threats, block our vehicles from moving, etc. Now, this is just my experience, but Unions truly are thugs. I think what pissed them off most is that we were willing to work more than 40 hours a week in order to complete the project as scheduled & promised.
