Steven Crowder Lets Producer Kneel on Neck for Nine Minutes in Latest Video

Political commentator Steven Crowder announced he was going to “walk a mile in another’s shoes” by having a producer from his podcast “Louder with Crowder” kneel on his neck for nine minutes.  

“Today I am going to test the theory and have my producer (and @GmorganJr) kneel on my neck for 9 minutes, live on concrete,” Crowder tweeted on Wednesday. “No tricks, no cuts. We need to walk a mile in another’s shoes… 10 AM ET.”

In the ensuing video, Crowder laid face down on the concrete with his hands restrained behind his back while a producer knelt on his neck for nine minutes, to simulate the conditions George Floyd endured when ex-Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin forcibly restrained him prior to his death.  

“I don’t want to do this, but the point is the drugs, the agitation, the actively resisting arrest, the three and a half times lethal dose of fentanyl matters,” Crowder said in the video. “I don’t expect this to be pleasant, but I think people need to see what it’s like with the closest to controlled conditions that we can recreate as far as body mass, weight, to see what it actually might be like if someone is not in an agitated, significantly overdosed state.”

The producer weighed in to show he was 195, reportedly two pounds over Chauvin’s weight at the time of the incident. As he knelt on the show’s host, Crowder complained of a shoulder injury that the position was agitating and was visibly uncomfortable.  

When a co-host said Crowder sounded strained, he replied, “I’m not saying this is pleasant, I’m asking would this kill someone.” The video was viewed more than a million times and Crowder received plenty of backlash from Twitter. 

Since Steven Crowder thinks having his producer kneel on him like Chauvin kneeled on George Floyd proves something he must believe if one person doesn’t die from something the other couldn’t have either,” said anti-racism educator Tim Wise. “Cool theory bro. Do Ashli Babbitt next, ya know just to see what happens.”

Another replier chided, “I normally agree with some of your takes but re-enacting another person’s death for your internet following is pretty bad.”

“Steven Crowder is once again trending for being a racist piece of s**t,” captioned one commentator, who shared a video of Crowder being punched in the face.

Makes no difference if it proves or disproves that kneeling on a person’s neck will result in their death, the racist of both colors will see it the way that proves their side of the debate. If your a black racist it will kill you if you are a white racist it will not and know matter how much it is proven they will never see any other way.

You are so right. If this was a dead white man, killed by a black cop in the same way, we wouldn’t be hearing a word about it. BLM does not matter to me any more. They are thugs and the big corps that are giving money to them should be ashamed.

Looks like the neck kneeling does not kill anyone. Other significant causes do.

I have been watching the court case, And they said he was alive when he got to the hospital, So the cop did not kill him!

Yeah… and the “Powers that be” made sure that you couldn’t watch this video on this post OR on “YouTube” or anywhere else I’ve checked. It’s been “scrubbed”. Which means that it must have been pretty good when the censors pile on (no doubt applying far more pressure than Off. Chauvin did). What is amazing is the quality of the objections to Crowder’s reenactment/replication (call it what you will). This is the essence of analysis – replicating circumstances, while controlling the variables. Testing to see if the results are inevitable or if there are other factors at play. It’s experimentation. It’s empiricism at work. It’s what every “accident reconstruction” I ever presented in court was composed of. It’s… well, it’s SCIENCE! And I thought we all “believed” in science. I thought we all “followed the science”. I thought… well, forget what I thought. What got proven is that, when “science” gets in the way of what the Left wants to believe, it’s… a stunt? It’s racist? It’s bad. Which, frankly, is probably all the answer we really needed.
