Eh, I've seen dozens of Tankie groups make official propaganda praising both and even worse, the real tip off that this is making fun off them is the money gimmick, as it lowers these noble warriors to the level of trading cards and Gacha games.

Business is slow

The riots going on now in response to a hideous injustice should be of much interest to any Marxist commenter, and of course, Molly "RedKahina" Klein is doing the responsible thing and saying nothing about them and instead RTing articles from right-wing british magazines calling the virus a hoax and claiming the Amy Cooper video was a false flag operation

And her saying “THATS MY GAS MASK!” Like it’s not a super generic 3M full face respirator that sold like hot cakes when the pandemic started. Everyone looks basically the same with one of those on and they’re incredibly common. I had like fifty in the safety connex at my last job.

I kinda get why some leftists dedicate themselves to trying to counter tankie bullshit. A normal person who casually knows even some of the stuff tankies try to excuse by claiming 'conspiracy' could easily be turned off of leftism if their initial encounters are with tankie swarms on twitter who fellate the hypocritical 'communism' of north korea and china while claiming anything bad about them is the result of a conspiracy by the cia.

Existential Comics is fun if you're a philosophy nerd but can be real tedious defending anarchism/socialism.

And I used to call myself a left liberal, or a social democrat, but so many crises have occurred at once that the need for radical reform in the US is impossible to ignore. So I would say I'm a socialist now. Still not great.

Although the point about how the Chinese have been more restrained than US cops are is... salient? Because Christ what thugs we have on the payroll.

I mean, this kind of weird false equivalency is nearly as stupid as most of the twitter takes in this thread. It's very easy to be a communist who doesn't uncritically support the the CCP, and many people - non tankies - would dispute the notion that westerners enjoy "relative freedom", particularly right now, with the military occupying the street and poverty being incredibly widespread.

Also the whole "if you don't like it go elsewhere commie" is an excellent identifier for when a stupid jingo is more offended his own nationalist feelings have been impugned than they are about actually improving the material lives of people in either the US or Hong Kong.

I'm not actually saying that. I'm saying that an anarcho-communist has no love for North Korea, the invisible committee types have no love for China, the communist sailors of Kronstadt died fighting the Bolsheviks. If you ignore the differences and pretend there is just one monolithic lump you're just being stupid.

The biggest tankie lie is "critical support"; the same people who say that they "critically support the Soviet legacy" are the same people who say that Beria was unfairly maligned by revisionists in the Politburo.
