Richard Stallman is a great programmer. He wrote GCC, and worked on at least three operating systems (ITS, Symbolics Lisp Machines, and GNU). In the case of the Lisp Machine OS, he maintained his own libre fork of the operating system, and independently wrote his own patches for every single feature and bug fix *the entire company* released.
He didn't "side with the SJW on Gamergate". He found an article about Gamergate, said that death threats are bad, gave a list of corruption in other areas of journalism, and complained about software freedom.
