Diego Rivera is a major league hair splitter. He admits that Breitbart news advances misogyny, racism, and white nationalism, but hasn’t seen evidence of the same in Brietbart’ honcho, Steve Bannon. What? Alright Diego, well how about Bannon’s ex-boss pardoning a convicted racial profiler like Joe Arpaio? How about Bannon’s preferred candidate telling the world that Judge Curiel, an American jurist, should recuse himself because his parents were from Mexico? Perhaps Bannon doesn’t wear a grand dragon hoody, but the bigotry is stark if you have the courage to see it. I’m especially troubled by minorities who play ostrich in times like these. I’m troubled by you, Diego!
