.@Netroots_Nation When your white male staff disrupts the delayed black disability panel and you edit the live video removing said disruption what does that say about your progressive integrity? #NN19 https://twitter.com/Netroots_Nation/status/1150116300162838529
.@IlhanMN on her Qs to Elliot Abrams "knowing his history, and the trail of blood, I wasn't going to let him get away with it. I was going to ask the Q that every single person yelling at the TV wants to ask, because now they get to be in that room, and they get to shout" #nn19
"We're not in the business of asking to share that power. We're in the business of trying to grab that power so we can push for... [what we we were put in] the majority for, which is to resist and insist on policies that will push this country forward." @IlhanMN #nn19
When @ewarren said “President Elizabeth Warren” at #nn19, my crops were watered, the skies cleared, my pores were cleansed, my credit score became 700 instantly, and my student loans disappeared.
Oh wait, all of those are related to different Warren policy plans! Imagine that.

So basically at #NN19 in Philly when me and a gang of Muslim activists were getting ice cream after dinner & chatting on sidewalk after the rain - good wholesome fun - when this guy was playing flute around us. And who else plays flute in public wholesome spaces?

A wall at #NN19 where people are betting who will drop out next. The high numbers for Biden and Sanders seem more aspirational than reality based
I spent a day at Netroots Nation on the great fault line between the empowering women, POC and youth pathway to beating Trump in 2020 and the blue-collar route. I came to see they're not as divergent as you might think. My report from Day 1 is up! #NN19 https://www.inquirer.com/columnists/attytood/netroots-nation-2019-philadelphia-progressives-how-to-beat-trump-20190711.html
And this is when the panel was interrupted by a white male #NN19 staffer who wanted to remove @nealcarter from the stage because they needed the single lift they had in the building for another event.
"I ran on an unapologetically progressive agenda, and Republicans voted for me. Independents voted for me...Our progressive candidates stand for every single American." #NN19
Rep. Deb Haaland @RepDebHaaland at Netroots: Family separation isn’t new. At age 8, her grandmother was taken and sent to residential school. Separate people from their parents or their children, and you can control them. #CloseTheCamps #netrootsnation #nn19
