Holy shit, wtf happened to JP. Last time I saw him he was pretty chill, now he's some right wing nut job? Damn, what a shame.
He always was conservative... some may just have confused his classical liberal opinions as being politically left; nope it's always been politically right.

The "nuts" on the left have just spent a lot of time trying to skew that division -- Liberalism has been always about securing freedoms, and the left has never been that... simple distinction:
  • Left is pro big government e.g. socialism, communism, fascism...
  • Right is anti big government e.g. classical liberalism, conservatism...

American liberalism and the hysterical left has nothing to do with liberalism elsewhere in the world. I'm liberal and left on almost all issues, and I can clearly see that America has a problem. On both sides. Personally I think America's right is an order of magnitude more harmful than its left, but both are in different positions on the crazy spectrum.

JP was definitely not an overt right wing nut in the past. Even that video shows him strongly alluding to how he never used to be how he currently is.

Wrong... you've simply made the mistake of thinking classical liberalism was political left -- it never was. Classical Liberalism is Conservatism.
Leftists have tried to skew that for a long time e.g. in the US; liberalism has been used incorrectly to refer to the politically left -- when in reality they are ideologically diametrical opposites .

How could a liberal (who prizes freedom) ever be pro big government? To believe that is nuts.
Also don't conflate comedy with reality... what you may deem to be reality has me laughing my ass off e.g. blue hair... expecting different results...

Here is an example of JP from 2015, he hasn't changed... what more likely has changed is you and your source of news.
