Good catch. You're right about name calling, but I understood his use of worthless not as disparagement but as expressing frustration, something I recall him expressing in other arguments about anarchists after his opponents began chiding him. As well, I took his comment as just a small part of his comment because he didn't drone on about this frustration.
From my recollection, he seldom name calls. My recollection, though, might be wrong. But because I remember he has no habit of speaking poorly about people is why I understood his use of worthless how I did. If my recollection is wrong, where he does downcast people habitually, then I hope he cleans up his behavior.
