Yesterday, the right was all over this video of Fox News contributor Steven Crowder getting punched by union protesters in Michigan, over the state's right-to-work law.

The video is edited so it's tough to nail down the sequence of events specifically, but Crowder appears to have gotten punched while trying to stop protesters from tearing down an Americans for Prosperity tent.



The right pounced on Twitter:

On Sean Hannity's show, Crowder said: “I literally believe, Sean, that if I had defended myself at all, even flicked a small little jab, that they would have killed me where I stood."
