So this is the attention grabbing headline at the Intercept this morning, and the disclaimer they had to add after their former far-left journalist (whom they had fired for inventing fake news and sources) was arrested for calling in bomb threats to at least 8 Jewish organizations. #AYFKM
Juan Thompson’s arrest is the top story at Memeorandum this Friday:
Authorities investigating recent bomb threats against Jewish institutionsnationwide arrested a former journalist Friday morning and said he was behind at least some of the threats, describing them as part of the man’s campaign to harass a woman.
The arrest in St. Louis appears to be the first made in response to a recent wave of bomb threats at Jewish centers and schools across the country in recent days. Headstones also have been vandalized at Jewish cemeteries in Missouri, Pennsylvania and, most recently, upstate New York.
For a real eye-opening, check out the racist Twitter meltdown Mr. Thompson had before he was arrested. Here’s his timeline (quick! Before he posts bail and sets it to private!)
He seems nice.
Happy Friday, y’all. This is an open thread.
