This is my style too.
I agree that this stinks, and it is hard as a non-bio parent who cares to see this kind of stuff being done to a child you care about and I am sorry you are having to go through it.  Even more so I am sorry your son feels so unwelcome/put down during his limited time with bio-mom.  What a blessing you and your husband are to be there to listen to him vent, to be a caring ear when he is feeling uncared for.  He is getting to see her true colors while still having you guys...
