From what I understand they justify it with "it's all lies and propaganda against communism" but they can't deny those things so they excuses it with "it wasn't as bad". I don't understand their fetishism for idols and authority. Identifying with dictators just make them look bad, and it's scary.

What made me laugh is that they banned prince_kropotkin.

They're just insecure, bitter people who think the only way they can advocate for their ideology is to tie it to these regimes. That's why they're never successful recruiting anyone except people who don't know any better and reactionary crypto-fascists.

What's the point of spending months writing that code only to ban anyone who isn't a dengist? Tankies are fucking strange.

What a great exchange OP: https://communism.lemmy.ml/post/261

I'm surprised they haven't deleted it yet. It makes them look so ridiculous.

Where did I say U.S. allies are better? Y’all have some black-and-white thinking going on. Believe it or not, it’s possible to oppose two things at once, namely American imperialism and the brutality of dictators like Assad.

this user has to slow down with such radical thinking, tankies cannot handle complex thought

Thanks, I was shaking my head the entire time. Got tired of that place pretty quick. I think they probably would've deleted it, except the person I was talking to was a different admin than the one who created the site and has been doing the majority of the censorship (dessalines). Also, it happened before the "brigade" and mass-deletion spree, so they were less laser-focused on removing anything remotely resembling criticism. I did get this beauty taken down, though.
