How would you fix this rear derailleur mount end

How would you propose I bend it back straight. The mount hole for the rear derailleur. I was thinking get similar sized metal rod from home depot and cut threads on it to fit in there to put in there and bend it. But not sure if there's a better method someone else has. Any suggestions?

My first thought was to install a bolt into the thread and grab that with channel locks but that may cause it to bend somewhere other than the current bend.

So, I'd pull the wheel and it lay onto a hard surface, like a vise or anvil (sprocket side), and tap it which will flatten the entire tab flat.
