And boy is Vox proving it over and over. Take a gander at this epic idiocy pointed out by Twitchy on Sunday:

Hong Kong's protesters are using the "hands up, don't shoot" gesture from Ferguson http://t.co/BgAm8rmXc9 pic.twitter.com/qjGUx2gCdD

Come on. Now you are just trolling us, no?

No connection between Hong Kong protesters and Ferguson “hands up don’t shoot” http://t.co/ASK1PIPTHn pic.twitter.com/U9a1Uwmmto

Duh.

Asked about link between the gesture and Ferguson, Icy Ng, a design student at Hong Kong said, “I don’t think so." http://t.co/b0ns8f62nQ

@Heminator Feel like that Vox piece had to be clickbait, not true ignorance. No one’s that dumb.

— Allahpundit (@allahpundit) September 29, 2014

Or perhaps both? Idiocy and pathetic click-baiting.

@allahpundit Piece is improvement over time Klein and Yglesias thought ChiComs gave out free apts and birthday cake. http://t.co/JfAMQqG8Xj

— Mark Hemingway (@Heminator) September 29, 2014

@Heminator Yeah, but that’s gullibility. What adult hasn’t seen the hands-up gesture in old movies and photos?

— Allahpundit (@allahpundit) September 29, 2014

That’s old time-y and stuff! Geez. Get hip.

@allahpundit For the kids at Vox, I suspect civilization began in 1990.

— Mark Hemingway (@Heminator) September 29, 2014

Snicker.

@Heminator @allahpundit You're too generous. November 4, 2008.

— Sean Davis (@seanmdav) September 29, 2014

Double snicker.

@seanmdav @Heminator @allahpundit To be fair, Nov 4, 2008 was when the oceans started to recede. Everything before was antediluviuan.

@Heminator I suspect it's not bound to a date (the calendar a symbol of Christian hegemony) but rather release of 1st iPhone @allahpundit

Brilliant.

Many suspect “stupidity clicks.”

Vox’s business model isn’t based on outrage clicks. It’s based on *stupidity* clicks. http://t.co/coF9O3dSMN

— Sonny Bunch (@SonnyBunch) September 29, 2014

Vox depends on stupidity clicks more than Buzzfeed. http://t.co/a2i2qSxNlu

This is why you should always tweet screenshots of Vox, not links RT @JohnEkdahl: “Stupidity clicks” http://t.co/eUuYOn11ib

@SonnyBunch They've made weirdly admirable quasi-Nietzschean decision to give up on respectability – they're laughing all the way to bank.

— Jeff B@AoSHQ (@EsotericCD) September 29, 2014

Pitiful.

What’s next for Vox?

I hear the citizens of Hong Kong have been especially angry at Chris Christie for that bridge closing.
