I hope I'm not ignorant in any of the kinds of ways this person is ignorant.

Yeah, If I'm ever that out of touch I just hope someone tells me, and I hope I have the humility to listen to them.

I suppose this is where i ought to do the same for the author, but i can't be bothered.

Honestly as a communist instance, anti-communism and anti-Marxism should be barred, which includes basically all anarchists under that umbrella.

Having lenin on the sidebar has kept most of them away, but I don’t see any problem with drawing the sectarian lines at no anarchism.

Tankies are actually almost not intolerable once they drop the pretense of being non-sectarian.

Heh.

But, seriously, that sort of thing is par for the course.

What's the problem with what they're saying exactly? Can someone explain?

Anarcho-Communism, or Ancom, is an ideology that draws very heavily from the colonialist’s ahistorical view of “industrial workforce”. At the ideology’s very core lives a continuation of colonial racism, every aspect of the ideology is drenched in colonialism.

I’ll start by explaining that the term “worker” being pointed towards people is derogatory, that was (and still is) done to seperate the colonizers from the colonised. To put it another way, the “civilized” white men, from the “uncivilized” dark men who aren't accustomed to working in the factories.

The other thing I want to bring up about Communism - if I may use its proper name - is that it is very often filled with red fascists, and right-wing chuds. Though there are leftists within the umbrella, if you take the time to visit Communist communities like leftypol, you’ll find very quickly that they’re filled with hateful people. You’ll find rampant homophobia, terrible transphobia, and boatloads of racism. That makes it a predominately vile ideology, and not a community I want here on raddle.

Of course, I write this because /f/ancom has been made, and I dreaded the day I would have to write this out to protect - if you would - raddle from the terrible meme of it. And, of course, I don’t say this to be an asshole or a party pooper, but I can’t allow such a disgusting disgrace of a meme’d ideology to taint our communities. People who are aware of me would know I’m a Machinist, and that I specialize - for my career - in machinery that can be used in collective factories and co-ops. The machinist community constantly gets flooded with An-Com assholes, I’ve seen what happens when they become tolerated, and I don’t want that to happen here.

I know this is supposed to be making some kind of point but it's really not because anarcho-communism isn't colonialist like anarcho-primitivism.

I believe you meant to say "anarcho communism is colonialist, and anarcho-primitivism is not"

No I didn't... Anarcho primitivism has colonialism right in its name, it frames non white races as primitives or subhumans. Anarcho-communism is for everyone, not just white people who want to eat berries and wear furs.

Don't you see how colonialist it is to insist some dead European man's industrial workerist worldview is "for everyone"? Not everyone wants an industrial work-based sedentary city-dwelling society.
