Vox is on a roll today:

Can you guess who’s responsible for that brilliance? If you said Max Fisher, give yourselves a big hand! The JuiceVoxer never runs out of ways to paint Israel as evil.

It really is a wonder.

Vox has no shame. But what they lack in shame, they make up for in flagrant idiocy:

Vox-er blames Israel for disproportionate Palestinian deaths, ignores Hamas’ ‘defense’ strategy

  • Ghee!

    It takes a really special kind of stupid to be this stupid. The neckbeards at Vox pull it off seemlessly.

    • pinupartist

      Is it any wonder that the US can’t win a war when there are actually people who think this way, not only in the press cesspools, but in high government offices? In the Bush years, at least it didn’t go all the way to the top, anyway, but how do you claim to be concerned about National Defense, then tie the hands of your defenders because you have weak knees?

      “War is the remedy that our enemies have chosen, and I say let us give them all they want” Poor General Sherman would be the object of so many hit pieces from the “smart folks” if he were in the Army today….

      Speaking of neckbeards….any of you guys, please answer….WTF? WHY? It’s gross.

      • Ghee!

        every neck bearded beta male should be throat punched until each whisker voluntarily leaps off their neck.

            No, that’s Matt Yglesias before the diet and skin peel. He got tired of people calling him Comic Book Store Guy.

          is there a list where we sign up to make that happen?

          I don’t know who changes their avatar more, you or FR. I’m thinking you.

          • Ghee!

            My prerogative! You don’t even know if those are pics of me or not. I’m a mystery wrapped in a burrito wrapped in an enigma wrapped in a wrapper.

          • DG

            You could have just called yourself an onion. Many layers to peel.

          • CVN65

            I’m very sorry. I represent the Conundrum Coalition and we intend to sue…

          • DG

            Only if nakedness involved. Otherwise, my schedule is full.

      • DG

        I grow a full beard/stache in the fall for hunting season. The rest of the year I’m clean shaven.

        • http://www.freedomreconnection.com/ FreedomRecon

          That’s different…I’m talking about these scraggly unkempt things these guys sport. It’s weird.

          • carmenta

            its just laziness… and the expense of razor blades

        • Ghee!

          I’m full beard right now.

          But only on the left side of my face.

          • http://www.freedomreconnection.com/ FreedomRecon

            Yeah, that’s a little weird too. :/

          • DG

            No kiddin? Mine’s on the right. I’ll grow in the left this fall.

          • bazasho

            The right side of your face is sad, and not as awesome

      • Chris

        The answer lies within the person “wearing” it. Look at most the crew you speak of, it tells you all you need to know!!

      • Stephen L. Hall #NonquamTrump

        If you just don’t shave . . . the hairline just grows into the chest . . . and the back . . . tmi?

        • http://www.freedomreconnection.com/ FreedomRecon

          LOL EW.

  • DG

    Vox is proof that even supreme idiots can find work.

  • Tom

    What a deeply ignorant twit. Does @voxdotcom actually pay this fool in real currency?

    • CVN65

      No.. They use Federal Reserve Notes

  • thedumbblonde

    Voxers riding the short bus to twaddle town again.

  • DG

    If Hamas leaves Israel alone, Israel will leave them alone. In fact (yes, FACT), Israel does leave Hamas alone. It’s only when Hamas is being the aggressor/instigator that Israel responds.

  • V the K

    OK… *Who* is favoriting that?

    • Tigerspike

      Seriously! That’s some crazy stuff right there!

      Sure they’re using human shields, but that doesn’t mean they’re badguys!

  • mrspinky85

    So, was Matt asked for comment?

  • Fire and Adjust!

    Yes, working at Vox automatically means that person is an intellectual midget, but you don’t have to publish puerile editorials to prove it……………..

    • Ghee!

      You can’t stop them, you can only hope to contain them.

      A pen would be a good start.

      • Chris

        Not an ink pen either. Like a 8 foot tall 6X6 dog pen. That would be the best kind!!

  • WhoMeToo

    Dear Israel,
    I have a ‘suggested’ new target. (¬‿¬)

    • Gallatin

      Does it involve vox moving its offices to a school in Gaza?

      • Nahalban

        I wouldn’t even want Hamas to have to suffer VOX.

        • Charles Hammond Jr

          Lemme put it this way:

          Vox is a particular brand of stupid so powerful that I wouldn’t wish it on our worst enemy…

          …however it’s also so damn annoying that I would wish it on our worst enemy purely for the benefit of us not having to deal with it anymore.

      • WhoMeToo

        I have zero problems with that.

  • Duane_of_Dibbley

    There are some people who simply cannot be reasoned with. They’re delusional, arrogant, and poisonous. The Vox staff appears to be a part of that group.

  • Chris Hightower

    If weapons are stored somehwere, that place is no longer a civilian facility. By storing weapons there, it becomes a military facility, and therefore, a fair target.

  • alanstorm

    “Yes, Gaza militants hide rockets in schools, but Israel doesn’t have to bomb them”

    Yes, they do. It’s too bad that Palestinian kids will have to pay the price for Hamas to learn that it’s a f#%^&g stupid idea.

  • Stephen L. Hall #NonquamTrump

    Vox is correct . . . there would be no conflict with Israel . . . if Israel would just commit suicide. Stupid and foolish, but technically correct.

    They apply this same reasoning to American politics . . . the liberals could advance their agenda . . . if only the conservatives would capitulate.

    Vox, like every liberal, has the mentality of a two year old throwing a temper tantrum.

    • Acethepug

      Except the two-year old grows out of it. Apparently, Liberals never do. Which, come to think of it, explains an awful lot about Bammy, Reid, and Vox …

  • Zarney Barnfarft

    Seems that VOX may believe that cease fires can only occur when both sides say “TIME OUT” very clearly and that the fighting will stop when one side or the other utters the word “UNCLE”

    • Chris

      Thats how they have spent most of their lives, so yeah, that makes sense to them.

  • QueenB

    Palestine / Hamas doesn’t need to bomb Israel. Problem solved. You’re welcome.

  • rambler

    Why is it that there are no bomb shelters for the palestinians? Because their own leaders have more use for them dead than alive. Why waste all that foreign aid on the palestinian people when it can be used to build tunnels, buy weapons and spew propaganda.

    • iconoclast

      in all fairness, Israel blocks importation of construction material because (for some odd reason) Israel is convinced that construction material will be used to build defenses instead of homes, businesses and bomb shelters.

      • rambler

        Well…… when dealing with those who lie constantly and tell the truth rarely, trust is a huge issue. The palestinians are doing little if anything at all to convince anyone that they are trustworthy or will be at any point in time. Many of the consequences they face are self-inflicted. They are victims because they have chosen to be such and appear to like what the get in return. That can only change when being a “victim” isn’t rewarding enough any more.

  • Arkuy The Great

    True, they don’t have to bomb them but that does not mean they are not allowed to do so. Civilian protection being compromised by military exploitation is covered in the Geneva Conventions in vivid detail.

  • Acethepug

    So, Vox completely outs themselves as anti-Semites AND idiots in the same article?

    Way to lower the journalistic bar, clowns.

    You know, Hamas could end the bloodshed now, today, by NOT FIRING AT ISRAEL! How incredibly stupid ARE you all at Vox? Or is it purely anti-Semitism driving you?

    You are truly horrible people.

    • http://youhavetobethistalltogoonthisride.blogspot.com/ keyboard jockey

      Vox are the bottom of the barrel.

      • Nahalban

        I don’t know salon still has yet to respond.

  • http://youhavetobethistalltogoonthisride.blogspot.com/ keyboard jockey

    I am pretty sure using civilians as human shields is against the Geneva Convention…who is going to send Vox the link to that wikipedia entry?

  • Gallatin

    Yes vox reporters hid their brains up their butts BUT you guys don’t have to mock them.

  • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    “Don’t do it, Israel– you’re better than that, aren’t you?”

    “Don’t suggest something that ridiculous, schmendrik– you’re smarter than that, aren’t you? Well– maybe you’re NOT…”

  • Rogue Cheddar

    Stork: What the hell are we supposed to do, ya moron?

  • HiltonHead_Dude

    Truth be told, many today are uncomfortable with the idea of Jews defending themselves, and would instead be more comfortable with Jews having to depend on the non Jew for protection. And we need look back not to far in history to see how well that worked out.

  • Nahalban

    Ya know the words, stupid ,moronic ,tw*t waffles, gets tossed around quite a bit these days but in this instance I think they apply.

  • Charles Austin

    Israel’s missile defense is 90% effective, so there’s no reason to try and take any weapons out before they can be fired indiscriminately. Jon Stewart more or less said so.

    • Arkuy The Great

      And that, in a nutshell, is the objection in some corners to “Han shot first!”.

  • Finrod Felagund

    Vox sux.

  • iconoclast

    IDF warns residents prior to bombing terrorist sites. Anyone who stays is by definition no longer an innocent. They are complicit with Hamas aggression and war crimes.

  • carmenta

    WHY Twitchy? WHY??? Why do you feed me click bait? I guess I dont have to eat it………

  • Misanthrope

    Israelis protect their women and children.
    Muslims hide behind theirs.

  • Misanthrope

    What Vox really means: No, Israelis don’t put weapons in their schools; but that doesn’t mean Hamas shouldn’t bomb them.

  • AT

    So, Vox, what you’re saying is, if Israel (and the US) reclassifies every single building, structure, military installation, and government building as a school – we’ll end terrorism. Hamas won’t have to bomb them. Yes?
