Vox Editor Openly Supports Violence: ‘If Trump Comes to Your Town, Start a Riot’

Vox-logoIn the wake of violent protests and attacks on Donald Trump supporters in San Jose Thursday night, an editor at Vox praised the demonstrators and called for more riots.

Emmett Rensin began by mocking the outrage to the violence.

He later moved to explicitly calling for more riots.

The attacks on Trump naturally attracted the ire of Trump fans, and Rensin was inundated with the homophobic and anti-Semitic slurs his online critics have come to expect. But mixed in with the slurs were some amusing critiques of Rensin’s employer.

UPDATE (2:36 PM ET): Vox founder Ezra Klein announced Friday that Rensin has been suspended for his tweets.
