Bret "bedbugs" Stephens is making the news...
Okay, I fully understand #Twitter is an antithesis to #Federated social networks, but this is special.

This morning I did not know who Bret Stephens (NYT) was. I knew of his work as caustic but didn't even attach a name to it before and barely remembered the #Newspaper it was published through.

Yesterday he got some "comeuppance" and it was delightful. I lost an hour this morning just hitting the heart button ❤️ on replies to his initial tweet attached below.

#BretBug, a #FreeSpeech #Troll apparently tries to chill the free speech of people who don't hold him in high regard. He was fine with his claim that Christine Blasey Ford made up the #SexualAssault that Brett Kavanaugh perpetrated during the public trial which encouraged death threats against her, but when somebody in defacto privacy calls him a name, he's on it like stink on shit.

Since last night "BretBug" has deleted his Twitter account. Because of that, many of the reshared tweets demonstrating his hypocrisy are "Tweet Unavailable". If you read the threads long enough, you'll find screen captures posted which clarify the missing content.

As of now, he's starting to be reported on by the regular news but not in a way that he wants to:

I heard about this, but didn't know he deleted his account. I guess we have to allow that everyone can have a bad day, but going after the students landlord and University Provost, was waay over the top. Thin skinned? For sure!
