Note: “There will be blood” is not just a tweet from a Democrat politician, There’s audio of it! It was played on Hannity. See here
What follows is a collection of links mostly in the order they were found 12/11/12. There is a preceding post that begins with Gretchen Whitmer suggesting Obama withhold funds from Michigan to pressure Governor Rick Snyder Here.

Published on Dec 11, 2012
A violent mob destroys the Americans For Prosperity tent on the lawn of the state capital during protest against right to work legislation. While destruction happened, there were people inside the tent and some in the crowd were armed with knives.
Steven Crowder says there were women and children inside and that he was “punched in the face four times”
Tweet at WZ by Nick Hawatmeh @NicolaHawatmeh says:
“Police called for over 2 hours as women, elderly were rushed & assaulted in @AFPMichigan tent. Thugs promise they will “destroy” supporters.”
Sean Hannity just played audio from the action on his radio show (at the top of the hour), says he’ll have Steven Crowder on next (3:23 EST, but for some reason there is a delay, he now says he’ll be on at the top of the hour 4EST).
Reporter on Hannity says he saw Crowder punched and there were several melees but Crowder got the worst of it. He also said the mob stole the food that was provided by a caterer or something.
Crowder is on Hannity now at 4:11 EST
Video of Crowder being attacked plus photo show him being grabbed from behind:

Person in photo possibly identified. You can sort of read his name on his jacket!:
There may be a dispute about the last name though, this says it’s probably not Cummings:

Professor Jacobson at Legal Insurrection discusses the Trutherism going on about this event.
“Yet this overwhemling evidence has not stopped the Lansing Truthers from claiming this all is a Koch conspiracy. Here are Hamsher’s updates to her original post, noting that one of Firedoglake’s own bloggers was spreading the conspiracy theory:”
