The author's point is that the SSPX is in a difficult position because Catholics supposedly view the Pope as the ultimate authority in the Church. In contrast, the Orthodox see tradition as the ultimate authority. He is saying that members of the SSPX contradict their own core beliefs as Roman Catholics. Obviously, if you do not accept papal infallibility and supremacy in the first place, then you are not contradicting yourself when you break of from him in order to defend tradition.

The problem is he is wrongly stating that the SSPX "separated themselves."  They did not.  Disobedience is not "separation."
