Liberal means a proponent of free market capitalism and private property. Anarchists don't like capitalism because we recognize it as theft.

Well, it's a complicated term in the US because the right uses 'liberal' as a generic derogatory term for anyone that doesn't line up with the mainstream Republican Party positions.

leftypol are tankies (state capitalists), they think anyone that doesn't lick stalin's boots is a liberal. To them a liberal is anyone who prefers free market capitalism to state capitalism.

EDIT: And also, they think anarchists are liberals for reasons only known to them.

Leftypol is exactly what it sounds like. It's the pol culture with mirrored politics. They're just as racist, sexist and awful as pol is, they just choose a different form of authoritarian politics. Pol wasn't originally a neo-nazi joint either, but they still took over and dominated the culture. It's the same thing with leftypol and stalinists/maoists.

Don't expect more from /leftypol/ and libcom probably call them fascists in return

Liberal is a de facto slur for the left and right to call anybody they had disagreement.
