C'mon, you can appreciate any and all effort he may have made in trying to shine a spotlight on parts of the alt-right, but when he himself isn't even considering himself a progressive, and is far more detached from the situation, it feels less like 'putting his money where his mouth is' and more like challenging alt-right personalities to be edgy.
Firstly, I am not your friendly, neighborhood progressive. If your previous view of me was that, erase that from your head right now. I do not care, intrinsically, about minorities, or women, or people, or racism, or anything like that. It is not part of my rhetoric to convince people that these things are morally bad, it is not part of my characters to be inherently concerned with these things. I believe that feminism and equal opportunities for minorities tend to produce better outcomes worldwide. This is why I end up at many of the same positions that progressives end up.
I am repeating this one more time, my internal thought process is not motivated by any pure, morally virtuous desire to help people or make people feel better.
