I looked at the timeline of this one I just blocked and they were making the “why can’t we just have a reasonable debate?” argument

wonder where I’ve seen that before. make u think. 🤔🤔🤔

tankies are not our comrades. they turn working autonomous movements and turn them into hierarchies where people are afraid to speak out against those who’ve seized power.

don’t let tankies into your organising. if they get in, take as many people as you can and walk away. such is the beauty of autonomy. they are never worth it.

same as with the fash. they have already decided they’re either okay with genocide or are willing to stick their head in the sand and pretend it didn’t happen.

debating them isn’t gonna do shit except spread their bullshit.

don’t let their shit go unchallenged if it does come up, though. don’t get hung up on being polite to your fellow leftist or worry about left unity or whatever. shut it the fuck down and move the fuck on.

we have the right to think for ourselves and decide who we want to organise with. “left unity” is a authoritarian project aimed at denying us that right.

Show thread

we don’t need left unity when we have autonomy. that is all.

actually, one more thing. tankies frequently try to spread the narrative that we’re not that dissimilar, we can overcome this rift, whatever. They’ll make jokes or serious points highlighting our common enemies.

Don’t fall for it.

Breaking away from a group infiltrated by tankies is much more difficult than making your group not welcoming to them in the first place, btw. Make it clear from day one that they’re not welcome, and talk about it regularly to make sure new members are aware of the danger

If you don’t shut them down early, before you know it you’ll be overrun with them and the group won’t be against getting rid of them any more. This has apparently happened to a formerly promising group around here and I’m very sad to hear about it.

@qyliss Might is right by another name. The lure of the mob on social media is strong.
