Wet tissue strength argument that is basically "the SJWs kept bullying white people so now I'm a nazi" painted red and used as a "threat".



weak association with anarchism and glaringly obvious sympathy towards MLs

Accusing anarchists of destroying "left unity" because freedom of association apparently doesn't mean anything and being "mean" to Leninists prevents The Revolution ™

im sensing some level of dishonesty here i wonder why

I haven't met any other leftists in real life, so I just found them online, and they don't always make a good impression.

Not dishonest, but, likely, just very confused person.

A lot of baby anarchists go ML after they read Lenin and Stalin and Mao and realize they like authority, actually.

I think that has to do with an emphasis on eliminating the state and capitalism over eliminating authority itself in introductory anarchist material. Chomsky's cool and all, but he's more socialist than anarchist and anarcho-communism is just communism without the associated baggage. Both of these also happen to be really popular introductions to anarchism, at least in the US.
