Note to Warren-promoting Washington Post: Frederick Douglass attracted large crowds because of his brilliance and eloquence; Warren attracts crowds because she promises free stuff, while omitting that her economic plan will destroy the US economy.

Via Free Beacon.

The media are rather obsessed with Elizabeth Warren’s obsession with taking “selfies” (NB: they’re not actually selfies) with supporters at campaign events. The Washington Post has taken that fixation to a whole new level by publishing an article that earnestly considers the question: Could Elizabeth Warren be the next Frederick Douglass?

The headline reads: “Frederick Douglass photos smashed stereotypes. Could Elizabeth Warren selfies do the same?” The article itself, published in the paper’s “Retropolis” section (Tagline: “The past, rediscovered”), expends more than 1,000 words, bolstered by “expert” testimony, in an effort to answer this question in the affirmative:

The two are separated by race, gender and more than 100 years of history that forged an America that would probably be unrecognizable to Douglass. Still, experts say, their use of photography collapses the distance: Douglass sat for scores of pictures to normalize the idea of black excellence and equality, and Warren’s thousands of selfies with supporters could do the same for a female president….

Elizabeth Warren’s Plans Don’t Add Up
