"I've been very honest about this, the fact that as they started ransacking the tent, yeah, me and some men went out there ... and we didn't get violent with them but we did try to push them off the tent. That is true. We tried to push them off the tent."

Yes, but they were independent, unbiased pushes of a journalist trying to get to the heart of a story.

We've got another James O'Keefe in the making. His mother must be SO proud.

This union guy should still take Crowder's challenge, then clean his clock.

Oh, LGF. I still remember the days when you would have been honestly covering this latest developing story of jackbooted union thuggery. Now you're a shameless lib sympathizer.

Are there no decent men left in this world?

/or prisons?

//or workhouses?

That wasn't exactly what I expected, I figured the guy who punched him was paid by Fox, but I called the whole story as fake correctly.

In a better world, this would be the final proof Fox News viewers need to realize how full of shiat Fox News is, they would stop watching, and that channel would be replaced by a home shopping channel.

But we do not live in that world.

Hmmm, sort of an odd Dickensian segue, but I'll allow it.

If FoxNews viewers were capable of learning, there would be no FoxNews viewers.

Who started the confrontation between the union member and the reporter? The reporter. It wasn't his tent.

Called it exactly. (Seriously, check the thread).

A jump-cut to a dude picking himself up and swinging at the guy in front of him usually means the dude in front of him shoved him. It couldn't be more obvious if James O'Keefe was dressed as a pimp and being "suddenly assaulted" by a black guy with a fresh stab wound.

14 Dec 2012 11:59 AM
trivial use of my dark powers     
And nothing will happen to this "comedian" and he'll do it again and again and every time the Fox News views will eat it up like the big dumb dogs they are.

/I didn't really mean that.

They won't let a fact get in the way of a good narrative. I still remember when that crazy college girl beat herself up and carved a backwards B in her face. They brushed it off and went back to talking about allegations of intimidation, signs being vandalized, etc.

Also, someone should mention that shoving people is "getting violent." You just turned an altercation physical, and you got punched in the law for it.


/shove a cop, see if he doesn't think you were being violent

The problem, as you already know, is that Fox viewers never venture out of the allegorical cave to get their information. Apparently, the loosely associated journalists at AP and Reuters are engaged in a jihad against the truth, or some sh*t.

So even when it's obvious they're being bullsh*tted, the victim card and ignorance of outside reality trumps it. Hell, Fox is the only reason Romney came as close as he did in terms of the popular vote.

I'm not the smartest man in the world, but I can tell it's not raining when you're actually just pissing on my leg.

The whole things reeks of a false flag operation. Has anybody figured out who the asshole screaming that he had a gun and he had killed people before was? My money says he was there for the sole purpose of making the unions look bad.

James O'Keefe's entire organization exists to train shillheads like Crowder in his corrupted brand of journalism. O'keefe even received non-profit status May of last year. It's baffling how someone on probation for federal charges would have a snowball's chance in Hell for attaining a 501(c)(3) status.

A reporter sees someone get shoved in front of an incoming train and continues to shoot pictures as he dies rather than help.
But god forbid someone attack a tent!

Reading comprehension is truly a lost art. He was trying to prevent people from damaging property and potentially injuring the people inside the tent...that turns in to "OMG he totally started the fight."

I was suspicious from the start when the tape starts with the punched being thrown.

Apparently not, when the ones risking the lives of others and causing property damage to make a "political statement" are of the correct political persuasion

That asshole has an AT&T beanie cap on. Did he get that as a shiatty company perk, Salvation Army store or the like, or forgot just what the fark he was wearing? Oh wait.....he might have done all that on purpose.

So the union guy should of been able to gun down the fox news guy and kill him right?

Isn't that how we are told stand your ground should work? Or does that only work against black people?

Fox news is a useful barometer for many things though. If i walk into a bar or restaurant or something and fox news is on some of the TVs... im probably gonna go somewhere else. If someone starts an anecdote with "On Hannity last nite..." im probably talking to a moran.

It's LGF. It'll be spun spun spun

You could always go over to the LGF site and post a question doubting his analysis but you'll be banned so quick ....

So, it sounds like people were attacking the tent which contained people who's opinion they disagreed with, the reporter got in the way and pushed some of them, so they decked him.

He shouldn't have bothered. The people with the knives cut the tent down anyway.

And yet there are still people in the other thread on this acting like Crowder is a patriotic and innocent victim over all of this. Conservatives are friggin delusional.
