It may be an insult term but if you actually support the old USSR authoritarian state, Stalin etc then you probably should feel bad in general. There was bugger all anarchistic or socialist about the USSR. One big male authoritarian, homophobic, sexist racist state but enough about the U.S and back to tankies :-) I assume the word to come from 'tank' refering to the USSR tanks ? ( please correct me if I'm wrong) Anyway, if you're offended by being called a tankie you should probably take a long hard look at why you would EVER support the stuff many of them I have met support. Babbling on about Russian battles , Stalin and/or Lenin...I'm babbling myself now so I'll stop :-)
