NB: The gentleman I quoted was joking! Don't dogpile him. I should've made it clear I knew he was being sarcastic.
Hate crimes in the US (2016-2018): 21,000 Hate crime hoaxes in the US (2016-2018): 50 What Smollett did was wrong but the big problem isn’t the .2% which are hoaxes, it’s the hate crimes which have risen 20% since Trump took office.
Global warming my ass!!! It’s snowing in Los Angeles!! Lol.
Not over. We still have a chance to save what’s left, but we have to act. #voteclimate
YAAAYYYYYYYY!!! They're back together! 9 months is an incredibly long time to be away from your daughter. Potentially 1000s of families are still separated on the basis that kept Sara separated. Sara wanted us to say THANK YOU to all of you who support her family.
Betsy DeVos, Alex Acosta, Elaine Chao and Wilbur Ross all had scandals this week that would be multi-day stories under a regular administration
You are not going to get wall-to-wall coverage of the Coast Guard Lt's terrorist plot, its implications for the white power structure in the USA and the fact that the policing agencies deprioritize domestic terrorists despite this being the most common form. You know why.

Ha!!!! Snow comes to LA and some people are confused. “People didn’t know what it was. I was like, no this is snow.” https://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-california-snow-20190221-story.html …
My take on a very dramatic day in NC election hearing, where a heartbroken son (and federal prosecutor) came forward to say he warned his father, Mark Harris, not to hire McCrae Dowless: https://wapo.st/2T6zict #nc09
This story from NC is astounding: Candidate's son testifies that he warned dad not to hire guy known for election shenanigans. Dad did it anyway. Now, dad's on the stand today.
Breaking News: A Republican in North Carolina whose congressional campaign is facing an inquiry into fraud allegations has called for a new election https://nyti.ms/2E767fU
"You caught me cheating so let's have a do-over" isn't really the way this is supposed to work. Harris should withdraw himself entirely.
Ahem. @Yale: I will happily talk to your students about what's involved in running for federal office as a scientist. I will also bring 100% less Russian-compromised @NRA crazypants with me than Dana & 100% more evidence-based policy positions.
BREAKING: The North Carolina Election board has ordered a new election in the 9th Congressional district. Republican Mark Harris' campaign engaged in systemic election fraud. Harris himself called for a new election after the hearing began to reveal potentially criminal conduct
The entire time I was reading this book I could not understand why we were supposed to give a fuck about him. Looking back, as an AP English student and an English major, I realize that the vast majority of my education was just learning young white male coming of age stories. https://twitter.com/RockShrimp/status/1098643578388127745 …
I'm so grateful for having had English with Mr. Hilbert, a white male who taught at our Catholic high school & included Chinua Achebe, Gloria Anzaldúa, Ntozake Shange, Toni Morrison, & more. We studied the canon in depth, but he showed us there was so much out there. #literature
Soooo you know how companies like Amazon and Google are always talking big talk about their renewable energy committments? Turns out their bright engineers are also working to help fossil fuel companies squeeze every last drop out of the Earth 😒
To summarize: Trump, his supporters, and rightwing media are frothing at the mouth over an alleged hate crime hoax on the same day that an active duty Coast Guard officer has been arrested for clearly planning white supremacist terrorist attacks on media and liberal politicians.
The really interesting aspect of this right-wing reaction is that it shows the system DID work, & that actors who lie don't get a free pass. I'm super concerned about what this means for people who report hate crimes in the future. They don't deserve added skepticism.

Say hi to Moros, a little, human-sized, newly discovered tyrannosaur. It helps to fill in an important 70-million-year gap in the origin story of the most famous dinosaurs of all.
Numerous studies now predict that we’re headed for atmospheric CO2 levels not seen in 56 million years—a time when there were crocodiles and palm trees in the Arctic. https://twitter.com/theagu/status/1098364207819640832 …
