I questioned Caitlin requesting that progressives ally with Mike Cernovich who had made a series of extreme white supremacist statements and other unsavory comments (like “women over 40 are indistinguishable from trannies”) and when she didn’t answer with any details, I started reading her articles looking for progressive topics. I noticed she tended to not attribute facts that were from other people’s writing and information, and instead, would write opinions of others as if they were hers, or with no name attached, as if they were facts.

I asked her why she didn’t refer to other progressive writers or to progressive leaders (by name, I listed several).

She never answered, then said she had a journalist degree, and blocked me, because I gave examples from her writing where she was not attributing important ideas or quotes from others.

That is what happened.
