[Ed. – Props to Warren and the DNC, at least, for trying to brazen out something so ill-conceived. That’s more than Republicans will do when they’re attacked over perfectly legitimate participation in GOP events.]
So many trolls flooded a Democratic Convention Native American Caucus meeting where Elizabeth Warren was slated to speak that organizers disabled a chatroom accompanying the livestreamed event.
Posters sent messages referencing Pocahontas, a slur that President Trump uses when talking about Warren; “1/1024,” a reference to the small amount of Native American ancestry Warren could have based on a 2018 DNA test that showed she has a Native American ancestor six to 10 generations ago; and sent dozens of snake emojis, a way of calling Warren a “snake.”
“Hi my name is Elizabeth Warren and I’m here to take your culture for my own personal benefit,” read one message from someone who identified as “Chief White Snake.”
