“With this selfie factory, she’s normalizing that image — in the same vein that Douglass used photography.”

If you want to know how the liberal media is going to treat Elizabeth Warren going forward, especially if she gets the Democratic nomination, a recent piece in the Washington Post is a good indicator.

Warren’s campaign has found a useful new hook. She sticks around after events to be photographed with supporters. Hannah Natanson of the Washington Post has somehow managed to link this to the famous former slave, abolitionist, and author Frederick Douglass:

Frederick Douglass — a black man campaigning for the abolition of slavery in the 1840s — appears alone in almost every photograph, staring down the camera in isolated, thoughtful splendor. Elizabeth Warren — a white woman campaigning for the presidency in 2019 — features today in countless iPhone photos and Instagram feeds, her arm around voter after voter, always bearing the same wide grin.
