What some creators are saying about the Jai Nitz scandal

In the past 2 weeks, the comics writer Jai Nitz had his career knocked down by accusations of sexual misconduct. Now, I've located at least a few artists/writers who responded to the subject on Twitter. For example, Jason Copland, an artist/writer at Dark Horse:

I'm going to assume he never met him, or maybe he'd at least have sensed something worrisome about his personality. Then, we have Jamal Igle:

But if memory serves, was he one of the anti-Comicsgate bunch? Why does he believe Comicsgate is a hate group, but wasn't concerned about what's going on in the industry proper? Doesn't compute, I'm afraid.

Most fascinating and eyebrow raising of all, however, would have to be Phillip Hester:

Oh, you better believe you failed, son. Wasn't this the same artist who worked with Brad Meltzer on the 6 issues he wrote of Green Arrow in the early 2000s, prior to the most notorious act of gender bigotry Meltzer penned with Rags Morales, Identity Crisis, which saw Sue Dibny anally raped by Dr. Light, and Zatanna punched in the tummy by Deathstroke, which made her vomit? As far as I know, Hester's never condemned Meltzer and Morales for that deviation from sanity. All he seemed to care about was Comicsgate. On the same thread Hester began, I also found 2 other writers/illustrators with the following to say:

So Layman and Howard, two other pro-establishment fools, also had their associations with Nitz? My goodness. This is quite telling indeed.

The lesson that could be learned in all this is that, if the politics of the allegedly concerned are so slanted to the left, it may not be surprising if they "didn't notice" the insulting behavior and characteristics of people like Nitz for so long. Try as they might, they just don't convince so well they weren't aware what he was really like.

I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
