Blogger Anne Sorock of Legal Insurrection showed up at Nutroots Nation and asked an inconvenient question:
Netroots Indian speakers defend Elizabeth Warren even if not really Cherokee
I attended the Netroots Nation progressive convention this morning in Providence, Rhode Island. The session was titled “American Indian Caucus.”
When I asked the panel about Elizabeth Warren’s false claims to be Cherokee, they became defensive and accusatory, refused to condemn Warren or seek an apology even though genealogical information shows Warren is not Cherokee, and falsely accused me of being racist.
The American Indian Caucus panelists included Paula Dove Jennings, Daily Kos staff writer Timothy Lange, and Neeta Lind of Navajo Nation.
Mid-question, Timothy Lange cut me off to ask me to identify myself. After I had finished asking my question, as the crowd began to shout me down, one of the people in the audience said, “she must be with Breitbart.”
I never realized how much Andrew Breitbart scared the proggies until now. He’s been dead for three months now but they are still pissing in their Underoos from his ghost.
But wait! There’s more!
NN Breitbart Wannabe Alert w/Pic+
This woman just trolled the Native American Caucus, shooting video while trying to provoke material she could use to embarrass Elizabeth Warren, presumably on behalf of Scott Brown. (I doubt she’s connected to his campaign. I presume she admires Breitbart.)
She quickly ran out of the room once she got made unwelcome. Well, and right after I took this picture. Dopper ran after her, trying to get more info. I got the best picture of her, thus this diary.
Being as how Warren’s going to be around, it behooves us to keep an eye out for her. I’d say it’d be a good idea to get between her and anything she’s trying to shoot video of, too. Stand in the way. Talk loudly about the weather so her sound gets mucked up.
And, please, people – don’t talk to her. Don’t give her anything she could manipulate or use in any way!!!
Breitbart is living rent-free inside their heads.
