I think this is what he's referring to:

I don't Twitter, so I'll have to take you guys' word for it.  I just wish people still spoke in non tweets.
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

He made comments about guns and the possibility of Bernie Sanders being elected.

And about shooting him in the head and women are property.

Sounds like a charming fellow.

The willingness to buy into these crazy narratives about people suddenly looting and breaking into homes for food is what confounds me. Where are the critical thinking skills?
I remember all the good times me 'n Miller enjoyed
Up and down the M1 in some luminous yo-yo toy
But the future has to change - and to change I've got to destroy
Oh look out Lennon here I come - land ahoy-hoy-hoy

I'm not sure which is worse, the lack of thinking or the "thinking" that if we let poor people see a doctor, we'll immediately be living in Venezuela.

Not exactly the beacon of enlightenment.

Several months ago some former journeyman ballplayer was taking questions on twitter and someone asked him who his least favorite teammate was. He immediately responded something like "Aubrey Huff, no question about it." The sentiment was echoed by many and of course Huff came in threatening the original ballplayer who was "too much of a coward to @ me."
"Holy shit, Mozart. Get me off this fucking thing."
