Pro charter billionaires astroturfing Democratic primaries


protesters interrupted senator Elizabeth
Warren’s rally in Atlanta on Thursday chanting our children our choice the
Democratic presidential hopeful was speaking at a historically black college
when the protesters demanded we want to be heard
conservative media outlets claimed Warren’s primarily white audience
shouted down the black protesters but it was representative Ayanna Presley who
came back onstage and replied no one is here to quiet you at least not this
black woman the whole thing smacks of a set up and you can expect to see more
