Gawker defends man who punched Steven Crowder
I swear…being an awful, pessimistic, liberal, basement-dweller is a requisite for being hired at Gawker.
Max Read over at Gawker has posted an atrocious story (via his mother’s basement) asking whether “we really have to condemn the union protester who punched Fox News Comedian Steven Crowder?”
Read’s attempt to defend this act of violence is so ridiculous that I’m beginning to believe that he is either:
1. Trolling. Hard.
2. Trying to get clicks on his story
3. A terrible human being
It’s most likely all of the above.
VIDEO of the assault:
Max attempts to take the side of the violent protester by implying that Crowder deserved it for inserting himself into the situation and advises Steven to “stop whining, take your licks, and accept that getting hit in the face is a hazard of inserting yourself in the middle of an argument between billionaire-funded know-nothing ideologues and 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.”
Really? I would love to see this writer’s reaction if a writer at Gawker had gotten punched in the face at a Tea Party event while reporting. I highly doubt the reaction would be the same. It shouldn’t matter what political party you belong to, violence should always be condemned.
