> People actually think he is some alt-right figure,

He's a socially conservative figure, somewhat popular with the alt-right because social conservatism is a central feature of the alt-right (it may be “alt”, but it is still “right”), though his a commitment to Western liberal (in the classic sense) democracy gets him criticism on the alt-right (which is used to democracy at least in the Western liberal form.) Example of both the praise and criticism (focussed more on the latter) from a site which self-characterizes as being within the “reactionary rationalist” subset of the alt-right: https://greyenlightenment.com/sjws-and-democracy/




To late to edit, but: “the alt-right (which is used to democracy at least in the Western liberal form.)”

Should be: “the alt-right (which is opposed to democracy at least in the Western liberal form.)”
