Liberal Journalist Calls For More Violence At Trump Rallies… Gets Smacked By Instant Justice

The website Vox has suspended one of its staffers because of a tweet encouraging violence against Donald Trump supporters.

“Advice: If Trump comes to your town, start a riot,” Emmett Rensin, the deputy editor of Vox’s first person section, tweeted Thursday night.

He went further.

“Listen, if Trump is Hitler then you’ve got no business condemning rioters. If he isn’t, you’ve got no business pretending normal is better,” Rensin tweeted.

“Let’s be clear: It’s never a shame to storm the barricades set up around a fascist,” he also tweeted.

Rensin’s call for riots did not go unnoticed.

“Wait, this is a diversion. What is legitimate to do to Trump or his supporters? What isn’t?” tweeted Michael Dougherty.

Rensin had his answer ready.

“Destroying property is legitimate. Shouting down is legitimate. Disruption of all events is legitimate. Murder isn’t,” he tweeted.

On Friday, Vox issued its own statement about Rensin.

“We at Vox do not take institutional positions on most questions, and we encourage our writers to debate and disagree,” the site wrote in a statement Friday. “But direct encouragement of riots crosses a line between expressing a contrary opinion and directly encouraging dangerous, illegal activity. We welcome a variety of viewpoints, but we do not condone writing that could put others in danger.”

“In this case, Emmett’s tweets violated Vox’s standards and Emmett has been suspended as a consequence,” Vox wrote.
