Vox Editor Tweets – “If Trump Comes to Your Town, Start a Riot”:

Two tweets last night by Vox editor, Emmett Rensin, have started a social media riot.

Here they are:

Shortly thereafter, he pens another tweet. Apparently attempting to justify/explain away his prior tweet.

True, except for the fact that Trump would have to provably be Hitler. In other words, he would need to do a lot more than say offensive things. He would need to start doing them. 

You can’t just start arresting people or violently attacking them for stuff they say. First Amendment precedent is pretty clear about this. The threats needs to be specific and credible. Moreover, the supporters who were attacked didn’t even say those things. Trump did.

Meanwhile, you’ve got Obama and Hillary Clinton running around the world taking people out, starting wars and destabilizing countries in real life. So are Obama and Clinton supporters guilty of war crimes?

To round up the Vox nonsense, let’s turn to Matt Yglesias.

Really dude? First of all, no one actually hit Trump with an egg (that might actually be kinda funny). Rather, a female Trump supporter was pelted with an egg for the crime of attending a political rally. Moreover, Hillary Clinton is far more similar to Hitler than Trump at this point. She’s got far more blood on her hands. Phony liberals tend to have a hard time accepting this fact.

Finally, I’d be remiss if I didn’t also include this priceless response to Yglesias.

To be fair, I still think @pmarca has Yglesias beat on the human egg front.

I once tweeted that if Paul Krugman had sex with the internet, you’d end up with Vox.

I think you see what I mean.

In case you missed it, here’s my article on the protests from earlier today:
