VOX Co-Founder Matt Yglesias Gets Doxxed After Defending Harassment of Tucker Carlson

“at least one Twitter user responded by posting Yglesias’ own home address in a reply thread”

Matt Yglesias is one of the co-founders of the progressive site Vox, which aims to explain the news to its readers.

After the Antifa mob harassment of Tucker Carlson this week, Yglesias took a less than sympathetic position on the issue and has now been doxxed himself.

After tweeting the message screen capped below, Yglesias deleted his entire Twitter history:

Here’s more:

Later in the week, Yglesias found himself the victim of a doxxing on Twitter.

Will Oremus writes at Slate:

A Vox Co-Founder Got Doxed on Twitter by a Hate-Spewing Incel, and Twitter Allowed It

On Thursday, the liberal journalist Matthew Yglesias tweeted what appeared to be a defense of a Wednesday evening antifa protest that targeted the family home of conservative Fox News host Tucker Carlson. Yglesias said via Twitter that he couldn’t empathize with Carlson’s wife, who was home at the time of the protest and locked herself in the pantry, thinking it was a home invasion. (Tucker Carlson and his four children were not home.)

Yglesias, who co-founded Vox and is a senior correspondent there, was widely criticized for his tweets, including by me. (Disclosure: Yglesias was my colleague at Slate from 2011 to 2014.) By Thursday night he had deleted them.

Before he did, however, at least one Twitter user responded by posting Yglesias’ own home address in a reply thread. The implied threat was clear: Yglesias had failed to denounce the harassment by left-wingers of a conservative media personality at his home, so now he and his family deserved the same treatment.

That Yglesias would get doxed was perhaps predictable, even though it’s a direct violation of Twitter’s policies. (It shouldn’t matter whether Yglesias’ address is potentially findable elsewhere online; posting it on Twitter contravenes the platform’s stated rules, and the context makes it clear that the intent is to intimidate him.) What’s galling—and, by now, familiar—is Twitter’s response.

While doxxing is never cool, it’s not difficult to see how this happened.

It’s a point Ace of Spades has been making lately:

Either we have a two-way social compact or we have no social compact at all, and it’s just pure Street Power and vigilantism and vengeance raids.

I don’t know what these people are thinking: Do they think that when we find out who they are, we won’t publicize their names? And addresses?

They’re always claiming that Right Wingers are “threatening” and “violent.” Do they really believe that? They seem to know this is bullshit, because they are sowing the whirlwind — which makes no sense, unless you know your complaints about a Right Wing Whirlwind are propagandistic lies.

But the thing is, obviously there are some right-leaning people, some not entirely mentally sound, who will decide to take things to a nasty level.

Do these people think that their leftwing politics and favorable coverage from Chris Cuomo, Don Lemon, and Brooke Baldwin protects them at their homes or when walking down the street alone?

If they’re willing to escalate this into threats and violence, how can they not realize that the same threats and violence will soon be visited upon them?

Unfortunately, this will probably get worse before it gets better.

Karma is a b*tch ….

And even knowing his address a violent right wing mob (sic) is unlikely to show up at his house.

No difference except maybe in degree between this little dustup and the left blatantly stealing more elections every cycle. If there’s no serious pushback, why wouldn’t they? Nothing to stop them but their consciences, and it’s been made pretty clear that they have none.

    TexVet, I’m with you…

    I’m astonished that the voting rights section of the DOJ hasn’t already been down to Broward/Palm Beach to seize evidence and stop this theft.

    Also astonished the Florida governor hasn’t pulled out all the stops to seize the office and stop the open thievery.

    The GOP has been thoroughly trained by the dems to heel. See: 1982 Case of Democrat National Party v. GOP national party, wherein the GOP was PROHIBITED from, inter alia, ” refrain from undertaking any ballot security activities in polling places or election districts where the racial or ethnic composition of such districts is a factor in the decision to conduct, or the actual conduct of, such activities there and where a purpose or significant effect of such activities is to deter qualified voters from voting; and the conduct of such activities disproportionately in or directed toward districts that have a substantial proportion of racial or ethnic populations shall be considered relevant evidence of the existence of such a factor and purpose.”

    This CONSENT DECREE DID NOT EXPIRE UNTIL DECEMBER 31, 2017.
    NOT KIDDING.

Live by the dox, die by the dox.

And what a ludicrous rationalization Yglesias offered up. There has been no “MAGA-inspired violence” as of yet, just leftist/media-inspired violence (see, e.g., the shooting of Steve Scalise, the Charlottesville police-assisted violence by an un-permitted leftist mob against a right-wing group engaging in a permitted protest, various leftist mob assaults in Portland, Seattle, etc.).

But Ace is right. If the left keeps on with these continuing provocations, there will be retaliatory violence from the right soon enough.

The more likely scenario would be for a left-wing kook to stage a “false flag” attack on a fellow left-winger to stir the pot to justify an escalation of the violence.

The point is that there is no way of knowing the motives of the attackers. The ensuing knee-jerk blame game will follow a predicable path and quickly gain momentum. As we can see with the frequent flash wildfires here in CA, once they start, how they started is less important than putting them out.

People who start fires don’t care who gets killed. They just like starting fires.

He said he “is utterly unable to identify” with feelings for his wife, for the wrongness of these acts?!.Well, now he may just be able to now, as a first-hand target! The old saying, “turnabout is fair play” should leave him retching his guts out from fear……

Not that he would change his views, apologize, or accept any responsibility for his words or actions contributing to the very targeted violence against the Carlson home, and other conservatives and Rs.

And of COURSE the media would treat it COMPLETELY differently if turnabout were indeed to occur…… Outrageous outrage 24/7 with calls to prosecute, blaming Trump, etc. etc. etc.

Behold, The New Rules.

so many levels of irony…too many to count…haha

I’m all for punching back twice as hard until the left starts to “get it”. Behavior, meet consequence.

    Tit for tat never works…. TIT for tat does. Reinforced response is required. The smug self-assured superiority felt by the Left condescends all before them. Hillary talked of empathy for the enemy….not so with their political opponents. Oh…and how is that “civil” behavior she promised?

Yglesias is just noise. Even a mentally perverted twit has a right to his mentally perverted speech. I’d save the bile for the criminals who attacked Carlson’s house and threatened his wife. The social failure here isn’t Yglesias’s braying jackass sounds, it’s the weak-sister law enforcement response to the actual crime.

    Subotai Bahadur in reply to tom_swift. | November 10, 2018 at 12:32 pm

    The Democrats and the entire Left support the attacks and are responsible for the “weak-sister law enforcement response”. If any DC law enforcement officer arrested any of the attackers, they would not have their badge by the end of the day and the attacker would be released and given safe haven elsewhere.

Yglesias reports that he doesn’t like a taste of his own medicine.

Much prefers the taste of Obama’s ass.

definitely has a ” punch me! ” face

    Isn’t it interesting how many of them do.

    Back during the Reagan era, there was an outfit called Women for Non-Nuclear Future. You could always spot them a mile away, they had a “look” that gave them away. Had two of them show up at my door one day. I asked them a series of questions about nuclear weapons and nuclear policy. They couldn’t answer them. I told them they should first understand something before they presume to be “against” it. (Like anyone is “for” nuclear war! But they thought Reagan was!)

You could always spot them a mile away, they had a “look” that gave them away.

similar to the sds boys and girls in my college days–they would descend on the west campus from time to time and they too had a ” look ” about them but long before they came into sight, you could smell their presence

Search “ICE agents DOXED via linked in”

Anarchists published the names and home addresses of employees in the Seattle area AND named their spouses.

This isn’t just happening to famous and noteworthy- we are teetering on full on jacobian / cultural revolution violence.

The left thrives on zero retaliation and they will also try to play the victim when it goes south on them and they end up getting the rough end of the interchange.

There is a well documented social phenomenon where one group will adopt the tactics of another group with which they are in opposition. In a football game, if one team constantly breaks the rules and little, or nothing, is done to stop this, the other team decides that such behavior is now acceptable. Interestingly enough, it us usually the team which was cheating first that now screams the loudest about playing by the rules.

Society establishes rules which govern social interaction. If one group decides to rewrite the rules to their benefit and the authorities within that society do nothing to restore adherence to those rules, the rest of society will simply start playing by the new rules, in order to remain competitive.

As you sow, so shall you reap.

This is like watching skateboarding fail videos. You don’t want anyone to get hurt, but it’s hard to muster up much sympathy when they do.

    MajorWood in reply to windbag. | November 10, 2018 at 6:29 pm

    Wait, we don’t want to see skateboarders get hurt? In what bizarre and perverse world is that the case? The reason I watch fail videos is because I don’t have enough patience to wait for the crash in real time, and they get irate when I ask them to do a face plant right now so I can get on with my business. Fail videos are proof that God and gravity both hate skateboarders. Seriously, even millenials find them obnoxious. 😉

    BTW, face-balls are a close second.

If someone was trying to break down his front door and it had already cracked, he can’t identify with that????? I’ll bet his pampered ass would be dialing 911 as fast as his little pudgy fingers could push the buttons! Has he never seen a Nazi movie? Does anyone here have to think hard about someone or gang trying to break in your door and how the terror must be suffocating? It is this attitude that will cause an unbridgeable split in the country.

I like it. And its not neccessary to do unto Metro Sissy thd way his tribe did unto Tucker’s wife. Just let the possibility hang there. Maybe ring him up and tell him the call is coming from inside the house.

But he won’t get the connection. These are the same people who screamed “stop demonizing us you fricken nazi terrorists!” without pause or self-check. So someone on their side is going to have to get beat down for the bullies to back down.

I think Sissy Matt will be safe, though he deserves a good punch in the mouth.

No. I’m still trying to figure out why Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dorne are still alive. That’s when we started rewarding them for resorting to violence.

But how stupid (or arrogant?) is Sissy Matt? You simply DO NOT DO that, not the boast of Cassiopeia.

Matt: I cannot empathize with the mother who lost her son

Wife: Hey!

Son: Daaad!

Matt: What? You think a bolt of lightning is going to strike me down? Yo Zeus! I ain’t afraid of you, you cheatin thriving-

Wife: Bobby hand me that shovel quick!

BOINK!

But someone needs to confront him at his house. Not a mob, just 2 guys. And nothing threatening, just spread your arms wide as if to gather in the area and say

“see Matt? Is this really what you want? First your family gets terrorized .then my family, then some nutjob throws a molotov in Sarah’s nursery. is that really the path you want us to go down? put your fticken head out Matt before more people get shot”

(Sssh-nik!) Yeah Matt, before so-

What the hell Tom! I told you to leave the shotgun back at the range! Did Matt just.. aw frack. He’s out cold and hit the curb on the way down. How we going to explain this one to Marge?… Well dont stand there Termintor, call 911.

    Paul in reply to Fen. | November 11, 2018 at 12:18 am

    He would go butt-up and beg you to wear a condom and use lube before you got past the first sentence. He’s truly a pathetic little beta bitch.

Oh.

Sorry about that. I’m rambling. Party went all night and the Anderson twins wouldn’t uh.. see they do this thing with their hips that’s just WICKED and next thing you know you’re back in the.. er.. gane..

Yah I’m just going to go to sleep now. I’m moving to the door. I’m opening the door. Y’all have a good day now.

Fat keyboard revolutionary.

I doubt he’s ever taken a punch. Every man should get beat up at least once in his life. Sammy Wilber kicked my ass in 6th grade and we were wingman all through highschool.

I wonder if MattY owns a gun, legally 😉

Edmund is useful to the Witch only in his ability to betray his tribe.

I’ll bet we will see a lot more liberal journalists deleting their Twitter history.
People on the right have finally caught on and are using the tactics the left has employed for a while now – like using the internet to dig up dirt on their political opponents and searching through social media posts to find an old facebook post or tweet they can use to embarrass someone they don’t like.
Liberals don’t like it when the tables are turned.

“if your instinct is to empathize with the fear of the Carlson family rather than with the fear OF HIS VICTIMS” (Emphasis added)

Who *exactly* did Tucker victimize? Does the little beta soy boy have any names or does he just have his feelings?

I predict a large pile of dog shit will magically appear on this fool’s doorstep. Just a feeling…

I think what will happen before there are retaliatory mobs at the houses of leftist media figures is that there will be militias who homeowners, or citizens can call when leftwing mobs show up. The police are obviously not very interested in stopping this sort of behavior in some of our left leaning cities, so when the government creates a vacuum, by ignoring its responsibilities something will fill it. We saw some of that with the Proud Boys where they would keep Antifa from getting out of hand. But it can get much worse.

    The Founders called them The Sons of Liberty. They understood what our NeverTrumpers forget: history doesn’t record a tyranny that was stopped by words.

Memo for Will Oremus: You and your good time buddies like to think you’re all smart guys. So whatever made you think your opposites wouldn’t finally tire of being harassed, grow spines, and go Full Individual Vendetta on your collective Starbucks Socialist a**es?

Voxplain this !

These idiots want a war. And sadly, I fear they will get one unless law and order is restored.

Once again, the torpedoes fired by liberals circle back to blow up their own ships.
