Mike Cernovich: Why is the Atlantic focusing on Richard Spencer?

Mike Cernovich asks what I think is a reasonable question.

Why would the media ignore him yet give free PR to a neo-Nazi?

His theory is that, notwithstanding the role he, InfoWars, Milo Yiannopoulos, Breitbart News, Vox Day, and Stefan Molyneaux, among others, played in promoting Trump during the election, the mainstream media is playing avowed racists up as the “real” leaders of the alt-right.

If it turns out to be true, to say that the media is playing with fire is a severe understatement. Moves like this can lead to people getting killed.

Fortunately, the Trump transition team has issued a statement (h/t Target Liberty) denouncing “racism of any kind”. This shouldn’t be the least bit surprising, given how Trump reached out to black voters, and the passionate support he received as a result.

Just ask Diamond and Silk.

Whether the statement has any impact remains to be seen.
