FUCKING TANKIES AGAIN 

Fucking tankies took over some subreddits created to make fun of them. Just fucking. Staged a fucking coup. This is why I'm fucking scared of them, they seem to be able to infiltrate and overthrow every single fucking anarchist space that opposes them fucking he'll they're gonna eventually take over every single one of our spaces and fucking kill us all

FUCKING TANKIES AGAIN 

@hazelnot tankies are nazis larping as stalinists

FUCKING TANKIES AGAIN 

@maemachinebroke Nah they're just stalinists, cause stalinists are basically just fascists larping as socialists

FUCKING TANKIES AGAIN 

@hazelnot i used to believe in leftist unity but now i realize if a revolution ever successfully happened tankies would give everyone else the wall just to sieze power

FUCKING TANKIES AGAIN 

@hazelnot plus considering they're allies with the LITERAL chinese """communist""" party they're definitely not allies to an actual revolution

FUCKING TANKIES AGAIN 

@hazelnot They鈥檙e bullies, and that鈥檚 the kind of shit bullies like to do. But anarchists are good at regrouping and making new spaces. Mutual aid is more flexible and more powerful than a bunch of authoritarians and their Great Leaders, in the end

FUCKING TANKIES AGAIN 

@ghost_bird Ugh I really hope so cause this is just making me kinda hopeless lol

FUCKING TANKIES AGAIN 

@hazelnot That鈥檚 what they want, of course, and it鈥檚 no fun to have to deal with. But they鈥檙e irrelevant in the wider scheme of things - at least in most places. Just another minor faction of fash, effectively

FUCKING TANKIES AGAIN 

@ghost_bird Yeah but I encounter then so much that it honestly feels like they're the biggest "leftist" faction around

FUCKING TANKIES AGAIN 

@hazelnot Sounds like a Reddit problem, maybe. Or do you mean irl too?

FUCKING TANKIES AGAIN 

@ghost_bird Reddit, Twitter, and idk about irl per se cause I live in a shit city in Romania that has like 2.5 leftists in total - me, a guy who's too scared to meet up with me irl cause he thinks I'm a cop, and a friend of mine is the .5 lmao

FUCKING TANKIES AGAIN 

@hazelnot Yeah, that鈥檚 not going to help with feeling isolated and outnumbered. Sympathy. I鈥檓 really just an armchair activist, but there鈥檚 at least some kind of anarchist group in most major cities here in the U.K. and the trots are all too scared of the internet to be a big problem

FUCKING TANKIES AGAIN 

@ghost_bird I kinda miss being in the UK but now that it requires a visa I can't really go back there lol

FUCKING TANKIES AGAIN 

@hazelnot Yeah, I鈥檓 sorry about that. Maybe when Scotland goes independent

FUCKING TANKIES AGAIN 

@ghost_bird @hazelnot I wonder if I can use my register to be UK citizen status to move to Scotland, and get citizenship there if things go bad here in a few years.

I am worried what would happen if the orange goblin returns.

FUCKING TANKIES AGAIN 

@jenalyze @hazelnot I don鈥檛 know, but it seems worth a try. The best I could manage if things went bad here is Polish citizenship, which is unlikely to be an improvement

FUCKING TANKIES AGAIN 

@ghost_bird @hazelnot yeah, that would be a more dangerous place than the US.

FUCKING TANKIES AGAIN 

@ghost_bird @jenalyze @hazelnot but with polish citizenship you could be anywhere in EU?

FUCKING TANKIES AGAIN 

@ghost_bird @jenalyze @IngaLovinde Yeah but it's hard when the only languages you know are English and something like Polish or Romanian

FUCKING TANKIES AGAIN 

@IngaLovinde @jenalyze @hazelnot True, and I may yet try for a Polish passport now my mother鈥檚 done the hard work of getting hers.

FUCKING TANKIES AGAIN 

@ghost_bird @hazelnot This is why I ironically prefer less leftist spaces, they don't tolerate tankies, and usually at least tolerate leftists.
