This has nothing to do with gun control. For a change. No David Hoggs were hurt in the making of this blog post (see Does This Tweet Show David Hogg Realizes He’s Lost the Game? and David Hogg Shares 5-Point Gun Control Plan). It does, however, have to do with one of my biggest Twitter pet peeves. And watching Kyle Kashuv shut someone down in a way I’ve wanted to for years.
We start with Good Kyle, giving a Yeshiva student an attaboy for using the Daily News as toilet paper. Over a newspaper cover that was par for the course with the media’s “reporting” on the Jerusalem embassy.

To be clear, Kyle Kashuv is “good Kyle.”
Then Bad Kyle chimed in. Right out of the central casting of leftist douchetaco enterprises. So obsessed with Good Kyle, he has Good Kyle in his Twitter bio.
I'm sure you showed as much outrage when the NY Post printed this, right Kyle? pic.twitter.com/O44wzclJhU

Shorter Bad Kyle: “Oh, you’re upset at a thing. Show me where you were upset at this other thing. Derpity derpy derp.”
As if you have to justify that which you find upsetting by contrasting this other thing you didn’t. Otherwise, you’ve been got! Not to mention, that person who criticizes because you were upset at X and not Y? They’re usually upset at Y and not X. In other words, they can suck it.
I’m sorry if that’s confusing. Stay off Twitter. If you’re on Twitter… get off Twitter.
Good Kyle responded with great aplomb.
No, because I was 7 when it was published… https://t.co/FuyUzZH7Cq

I’d totally sneak Kyle a beer for that one. Not a good beer though. He should start off with Busch or Rolling Rock like the rest of us.
