*There’s no question that Fox News contributor Steven Crowder was attacked by thugs in Lansing, Mich., yesterday during protests against the state’s right-to-work bill.

*No question that the videotape of his involvement shows a peacefully inclined Crowder.

*No question that people “were immediately hostile, were immediately violent” toward him, as he said on Fox News’s “Hannity” last night.

*No question that those who assaulted him should be tracked down and prosecuted for their offenses.

*No question that Crowder came to the event with an agenda tucked into his black leather jacket: “I never went out here to try and be assaulted, as leftists might say,” he told Hannity. “I went out here to prove the left for who they truly are — certainly there’s union thugs — and I’ve achieved that.”

*No question that those are the words of an activist, not a reporter.

*No question that this crime victim is enjoying it all, as his Twitter feed demonstrates:
