On Thursday night, Emmett Rensin, the deputy editor of Vox’s first person section, sent a series of tweets that, among other things, urged people to riot if Donald Trump comes to their town.Wait a minute. Rensin [Send him mail] one of the smart-ass leftists who looks like he couldn’t hold on to his lunch money in grade school, encouraged anti-Trump violence, which could have ended in someone’s death, and he gets suspended. What does suspended mean?
We at Vox do not take institutional positions on most questions, and we encourage our writers to debate and disagree. 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.
Meanwhile, yet another smart-ass leftist who looks like he couldn’t hang onto his lunch money lamented in a tweet that Vox suspended Rensin.

That would be Ben Norton, of Salon.com
The screeching hate coming from websites such as Salon, the leftists’ candid call for silencing crimethinkers, and now, the continued leftist violence against Trump supporters, rather well proves Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn’s dictum that all leftism is totalitarian.
