Gawker says Steven Crowder deserved to get punched in the face

While covering the union protests over the “right to work” laws in Michigan, comedian Steven Crowder got punched in the face by a protester. And now Gawker has published an article telling Crowder to “stop whining, take your licks, and accept that getting hit in the face is a hazard” of inserting himself into the situation.

Gawker openly backed the union members in its article, defending the workers by saying they are simply “people whose livelihoods and stability are being threatened by the insatiable greed of the super-rich and the blind extremism of their wooden-headed political allies.”

And while Gawker is allowed to express its opinion on the “right to work” protests and debates, it is shameful that they accept physical violence as the natural and defensible outcome of this situation. In fact, they hold Crowder responsible, blaming the victim for what happened to him instead of condemning the actual wrongdoing.

Many of the commenters on the article don’t pull punches either, celebrating the union worker who hit Crowder. Warning, there is some NSFW language.

I’ve been wanting to punch that douchebag in the face since his ridiculous “my wife was a virgin BAWWW” post on Fox a few months ago. Kudos to the person who actually did it.

DorkusMallocus
No, I can absolutely defend the protester. He was absolutely right.

F**k FOX News. That little prick should’ve been stomped within an inch of his life.

Americans for Prosperity is destroying America and the world. This comedian wanted to get punched so they could say see the violent union thugs? Never mind that the “union thug” was fighting for his LIFE and for his FAMILY.

Other commenters defended Crowder and seemed aghast that anyone would defend an assault.

I cannot believe that people are defending the right to punch other people in the face as a valid retort to someone else’s opinions.

deanne_jackson
Amen. It is disturbing when people can’t step out of their ideology and see things objectively.

Seriously? I don’t care what your political beliefs are, you should never resort to violence against the other side. To condone the actions of this thug is disgusting and shows your true colors. You only believe in freedom of speech and opinion for those you agree with. I can only imagine your outrage had a Tea Party member gone to blows with a liberal reporter. You’d be writing articles demanding investigations and saying how this is proof the whole Tea Party movement is a bunch of racial thugs. But when people who you agree with do it, you blame the victim. Do you also blame women who were raped because they dressed slutty and were asking for it? Because the same logic applies here.

It is unsettling that the union worker felt the only way to disagree with Crowder was to punch him, but it is ever more alarming that Gawker would defend that man. It’s a good thing the whole world doesn’t subscribe to Gawker’s logic.

    There are those out there that not only defended the person who assaulted Crowder, but also defended the neanderthals that were dressed in masks and with boxcutters, began cutting the canvas ties that secured the AFP tent, the one with the women, seniors and a disabled person inside. One in particular said that the AFP people should have been smarter not to put a tent where there protesters and that it was indefensible to defend unionbusters! Really? I believe in de-evolution, as witnessed by this kind of behavior. God help us!

    Libs/Left/Dems intellectually dishonest slamming opposition voices in America and crying for PA, Syrian, Egyptian opposition “springs”. Opposition is just that and nothing more or less. Doing similar with minority safeguards they love when they are in the minority and then try to kill them off when they are the majority. How is what was done with Obamacare any different than this Right-to-Work situation? It’s not. Filibuster is wonderful when they are out of power and the first thing they try to destroy when they are majority. Intellectually dishonest to condemn Sarah Palin for mere metaphor of “cross hairs” as violent and look the other way with ACTUAL violence. They love to disrupt anyone they disagree with, shout them down, get in their faces, create chaos but, can’t take a peaceful opposing voice standing next to them. Until this intellectual dishonesty is addressed, they lack all credibilty. The media and press that assists them with this game of destroy the english language with double speak and “sanitizing” the news to be acceptable to idealogy gets a big fat F for intellectual honesty also.

    Plain and simple, I’m going to start going to events like this, and when I see liberal extremeists, I don’t give a damn anymore, when they get violent, I’m going to start cracking skulls. I’m 6’2″ 240lbs. I was in the army, and I’m more than capable of kicking the crap out of some fat gelatinous scumbag. Let some pathetic moron like the guy that hit crowder, and I’m gonna put him in the hospital. I’ve had it with “liberal america” The times come for them to hit the brick wall of logic. They want to use violence, and then cry foul when the right calls them out for doing so… well it’s gone past that point. When they use violence, and I’m present, I’m gonna make them swallow their teeth. I’ve had enough.

      Ben, you’re a moron. This piece of garbage was paid a lot of money by Fox to go to Michigan and incite people who’s jobs and livelihoods are at stake so Fox could later parade Sean Hannity around under the title “Union Thuggery”. The entire video shows Crowder pushing the person who punched him to the ground. Sorry, but if that right-wing twerp pushes me to the ground, I’m taking a swing.

      Ben, Conservatives are losers, the last two presidential elections proved it. We won by two electoral college landslides. And what is your response? Attacks workers, attack the labor movement, destroy unions, which are the only things that prevents American workers from being disposable pawns at the hands of the Enrons and Bain Capitals of the world. You defend Americans working for less money…you defend corporations over the American worker. Big Business is spending millions of dollars to promote what’s happening in Michigan in an effort to destroy the labor unit, and you’re for it? You piece of garbage. And meanwhile, you’re against raising taxes for the rich as we had towards the fiscal cliff. Destroy workers, defend the rich, you losers will not win another presidential election in your pathetic lifetime.

      By the way, I hope you go to one of these events looking for a fight and someone puts you on your right-wing behind. I would love a shot at you, you piece of conservative trash.

    and they wonder why unions are dying, good thing I wasnt there in support of AFP or the one who hit crowder would have gotten to experiance the same treatment. bullies only understand one thing and thats violence

    The question is not whether we can survive 4 more years of Obama. It is can we survive the people who elected him??

    whoever watches the entire tape and not just what Fox news selected, Steven Crowded actually inititially attacked the guy..this article is so far from correct that I have no other words than…people reading this, get your information from more than one source.

  9. Chris Pellizzari says:

    It is clear from the video the little Conservative comedian Crowder pushed the Union Member down. If that little punk pushed me down, I’d punch his stupid-looking face too.

    By the way, why is Fox News sending comedians to cover news? Fox hires comedians to work as “reporters” to make fun of and insult people who are fighting for their jobs and families? Good job Fox, good job conservatives across the country. You lost the last two presidential elections in electoral college landslides and your response is to attack the labor movement, while you defend the rich from higher tax rates. Let’s see how you losers do in 2016.
