I don't quite understand what he is trying to say here.

A bunch of vocal representatives of a fringe ideology have distorted the meaning of certain ideals attributed to the left, thus undermining what the left stands for. This is obviously true and I am not arguing against it.
What I do not like here is the conclusion.

I consider myself a strongly left-oriented person. Not by pre-conceived ideology but by my natural concept of ethics. That being said, I am not sure if political left and right have ever been sufficiently defined (other than at the origins of the terms during the French Revolution). But if I were to put the left-right spectrum into simple words, I'd say that left stands for egalitarianism and right stands for divisionism. This may seem like I have attributed positive and negative meaning to the terms respectively, but it is not my goal, so let me elaborate a little bit. The egalitarian principles of the left manifest in the economical politics mostly with income equalization and syndicalism, while the right-wing ideology focuses on freeing the market and capital involvement in the economy. And in terms of civil politics, the left stands for knocking down the social barriers, while the right opts for conservatism and staying with your own kind (be it by religion, nationality, language, culture, skin color, etc.).
These are the core ideals, and it's not "middle ground fallacy" to consider them all as valid points in the public debate.

The problem is that what is being often called "left" is not leftist at all. So-called "communist" regimes, where the elite class was shifted from private capital holders to central, authoritarian Big Gov, were socialist only by name, as the citizens had similar rights to livestock.
Same thing goes to the civil left side. Things like white guilt, prosecution of dominant religion, contempt towards males or heterosexuals - all those are not egalitarian, they are divisive. And they are not what the left is about. We cannot make lives easier for underprivileged simply with hatred towards the overprivileged, and definitely not by hatred towards regular, simple Johns Smiths.

The oppressive elites, whose well-being hugely depends on social division, are very happy to see the left defined by PCs and retarded neo-hippie college SJWs. I am not at all surprised that people radicalize towards the right nowadays, as they can be in opposition to cancerous pseudo-left. In one interview, our favourite sniffing meme, Slavoj Žižek, said that nowadays the best way to create better life for the working class is to be a right-wing populist. And I totally agree with him, since the narrative on the left has been corrupted so badly.

I absolutely do not agree with Dave Rubin's decision to "leave the left". That is just giving up to shifting semantics and misinformation. We need to correct the mistakes of today's populist "left", repair the narrative, and judge the ideals by their effects, not their superficial appearance. If things go on as they do now, it will be a billion times easier to find left-winged ideals among the proponents of the right side. It often happens already.
