The Barrio Nazi is a reference to Pedro Gonzalez’s twitter description, and it’s evidently something that has been thrown at him. Barrio because he is Mexican-American, and Nazi because he holds pretty right-wing views. As many of you know, I see myself as a centrist, or a moderate, and online I’m often insulted as a centrist dad despite having no children, or enlightened centrist, which is supposed to suggest people in the middle are arrogant or know-it-alls, or whatever.

I hold that I’ll talk to people on all sides of the political spectrum and try to find agreement and understanding as much as possible with whoever I’m talking to. Today, I do this with Pedro Gonzalez, whose views are a little to the Right for me.
