I’ve never really liked him because he’s a centrist and he’s not racist or part of the alt-right, but he has always struck me as being a quasi useful idiot of the alt-right. Maybe I’m partly an SJW but he has seemed to give too much validity to bad opinions in a way that goes beyond just debating people one disagrees with. Maybe I’m wrong. It seems like he has actually taken a stand against the regressive left and stopped being centrist with them which is a step in the right direction even if it might not be the best one.
What is really getting to me that I can’t stand about him is that he isn’t even remotely close to being a journalist anymore. He used to actually report on things but now all he does is find articles online and then pump out a 10-20 minute video ranting about it. It’s nothing that other people can’t do themselves and it would be much faster to just read the article then to listen to someone else complain about it. He’s not a traditional anti-SJW which is good, but he has this problem of his own and I’m sure most of his audience is becoming a bunch of centrist neckbeards who think that repeating someone else’s words is worth spending a few hours a day listening to.
One of the things that really bothers me is how much Tim keeps talking about how “concerned” he is about the political divide and how likely a civil war is, yet he keeps playing into that mentality. I don’t see any reason to think he’s aware of it but it’s still a problem.
