|Steven Blake Crowder|
|Occupation:||Actor, comedian, political commentator|

Steven Blake Crowder (born July 7, 1987) is an American conservative actor, comedian and former contributor for the Fox News Channel. Steven Crowder is Detroit-born and Quebec-raised (Probably misses the healthcare.) but unlike the other Steve C., it isn't an act. Nor is he funny. Ironically, as a child, Crowder voiced the character The Brain on the PBS animated series Arthur.
His comedy is largely based on shaking his head around violently while over acting, repeating the fact that liberals are evil, putting way too much emphasis on how he imagines he can't be racist because he has a black Republican friend, and warning how gay people are destroying America in an unspecified way. He also enjoys cross-dressing in several of his comedy skits (such as parodying Rachel Maddow or Lena Dunham)—which leads to some humorous speculations.
His so-called comedy is also detached from fact. In the 2013 Conservative Political Action Conference, he stated, "...Ashley Judd just tweeted that buying Apple products, again, is akin to rape. From her iPhone." That is a misrepresentation of a 2010 essay (not Twitter posts) by Judd in which she expressed grief at learning that electronic products are manufactured in countries in conflict. In such countries, women are often sexually assaulted by militia members.
In December 2012, Fox News aired a video that would briefly obsess the conservative blogosphere. At a Right to Work rally in Michigan, one of Fox’s young contributors was punched in the face by a union member. It was evidence, a parade of Fox pundits stressed, of “union thuggery.” On Fox and Friends, anchor Steve Doocy wondered what his colleague had done “that so provoked the left.” But an extended version of the video, aired ironically on Fox News’ Hannity, revealed that the original clip had been edited, removing footage of the puncher being pushed to the ground prior to throwing a punch in return.
