The civility trap: There's a right and a wrong way to express dissent

The civility trap: There's a right and a wrong way to express dissentThe calls for civility are a distraction. But when you have a group of angry people confronting an individual, the person targeted will fear for their physical safety, and rightly so.

Confused Pro-Trump protestors go after the wrong Red Hen restaurant

Confused Pro-Trump protestors go after the wrong Red Hen restaurantAs soon as the story broke that a Virginia restaurant refused service to White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, you knew the blowback was coming.  But some of the Trump administration supporters fighting back with nastiness are getting a bit confused, mistaking other restaurants for the one Sanders attempted to dine at on Friday. SEE ALSO: Trump slams 'dirty' Red Hen restaurant, but let's not forget Mar-a-Lago's 13 health code violations The Red Hen restaurant that booted Sanders over the weekend is located in Lexington, Virginia, and it's certainly faced the wrath of those who back President Donald Trump and think a business shouldn't refuse service to anyone because of their political views (unless, of course, you're a gay couple looking for a wedding cake). Whatever your thoughts on the actions of the Virginia Red Hen owner Stephanie Wilkinson — and there is a constructive debate to be had on the topic — that those who oppose her decision would stoop to threats of violence and harm is unconscionable.  To make matters worse, some angry MAGA-hat avatars haven't bothered to read deep enough into the story (or Sanders' original tweet which, hey, may have violated ethics laws) to keep straight which restaurant was involved. Now a different Red Hen restaurant in Washington, D.C. with no connection to the Virginia location has been the subject of threats and various acts of menace over the Sanders imbroglio.  Good morning! @PressSec went to the unaffiliated @RedHenLex last night, not to our DC-based restaurant. — The Red Hen (@RedHenDC) June 23, 2018 pic.twitter.com/AK7weW78QP — The Red Hen (@RedHenDC) June 24, 2018 The D.C. Red Hen also noted on Twitter that it's not allowed to refuse service to someone because of his or her political affiliation, since the restaurant is located in a federal district. What's more, the same thing is happening to
another unrelated restaurant named Red Hen in New Jersey. And, yes, the comments on their Facebook post are collectively a tire fire.  As for the Virginia-based Red Hen, the abhorrent attacks on that restaurant and its owner continue unabated, egged on by the president himself, because I reckon when you're already in hell, why even bother looking for the high road?

'Roseanne' shows what the media got wrong about Trump voters

'Roseanne' shows what the media got wrong about Trump votersJudging from its jokes about black Americans and immigrants, “Roseanne” was aimed at culturally affronted white Americans who feel robbed of their heritage. So it was a good bet that its star would stumble her way into the hatred and bigotry that lurk all over social media.

'Alien' asteroid discovered orbiting the wrong way near Jupiter 

'Alien' asteroid discovered orbiting the wrong way near Jupiter An "alien" asteroid from another star system has been discovered sharing Jupiter's orbit.  Through a telescope the asteroid look like every other in the solar system save for one crucial difference – it is travelling in the wrong direction. It is the first time an interstellar space rock has been found to be permanently residing in the solar system.  Earlier this year, a tumbling cigar-shaped object named 'Oumuamua', hit the headlines after flying into earth's galactic backyard, but it merely passed through and out again. But the new 1.8 mile wide rock – code-named 2015 BZ509 – appears to be a long-term resident, according to a study in the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. The first clue that it was not a native of the solar system came from its "retrograde" orbit of the sun, the opposite the direction of travel taken by all the planets and almost every other object in our system. Scientists have concluded it survived by orbiting the sun exactly in step with Jupiter, but in the opposite direction Credit: NASA / ESA Dr Fathi Namouni, from the Cote d'Azur Observatory in France, lead author of the study, said: "How the asteroid came to move in this way while sharing Jupiter's orbit has until now been a mystery. "If 2015 BZ509 were a native of our system, it should have had the same original direction as all of the other planets and asteroids, inherited from the cloud of gas and dust that formed them." Scientists have concluded it survived by orbiting the sun exactly in step with Jupiter, but in the opposite direction. Co-author Dr Helena Morais, from the Estadual Paulista University in Brazil, said: "The close proximity of the stars, aided by the gravitational forces of the planets, help these systems attract, remove, and capture asteroids from one another." Computer simulations suggest that the asteroid made the jump to our solar system 4.5 billion years ago when the sun was part of a tightly packed star cluster. “That was completely unexpected…it means it is an alien to the solar system,” said Dr Namouni. Since asteroids and comets carry organic chemicals and water, the discovery could shed light on the origins of life on Earth, the scientists believe.
