Meet the Hispanic white supremacist in Southern California's "alt-right" movement
He identifies himself as "Johnny Benitez" (but his real name is Juan Cadavid). He has participated in violent clashes to defend the policies of Pres. Don Trump. On Sunday he organized an "America First" protest against undocumented immigrants. [Most recently he was seen and heard arguing with white counter-protester Aaron Connelly in Berkeley, who called him out for the right wing racist and possible skinhead (although that just may be a haircut in response to male pattern balding) he is.] More

    (WQ) In defense of Juan/Johnny: What, brown man can't be a white supremacist? lol. It's a free country. Look, what is a "Hispanic" or "Latino" but a Spanish/European mated, often forcibly, with a darker indigenous person? So he may be brown or beige, but what if he's siding with his white/Spanish/European side? It's not impossible. He may have sold out his indigenous forebears to side with the invading rapists and enslavers. It's possible. Look at that brain surgeon former presidential candidate in Trump's cabinet or Japanese-American Joey Gibson of Patriot Prayer. We defend Juan's right to hold right wing, conservative, regressive, even racist politics. That's his business. But Univsion.com wants everyone to know he is an anti-immigrant menace and apologist who, as Connelly points out, hangs out with white supremacists and seems to share their views. Next, we should figure out who right wing blogger Irma Hinojosa is.
