As the Russian Revolutionary Leon Trotsky wrote:

Citing a mass murderer already has me feeling iffy, gonna say that.

THE UNITED front strategy was developed in the era immediately after the Russian Revolution as a tool for revolutionaries to meet the challenges of the day.

And the result was France being occupied by Nazi Germany and Spain being ruled by Franco. God bless the United Front, aye?

As Trotsky usefully points out in a document written for the Comintern:

Can this guy do anything but quote dead white mass murderers?

All this article tells me is that they see leftists as either standing aside and doing nothing, or standing aside and looking like they might be doing something, because all these 'United Fronts' have only resulted in things getting worse.

Arguing to discredit them makes you look like you’re capitalist sympathizers.

That's an assumption to make, and you know what they say about assuming.

You might wanna consider therapy for your OCD.

It's not good to compare this to legitimate conditions that effect people a lot; OCD can be really bad depending on its manifestations.

Even if the figures aren’t perfect, they make a valid point.

Which is exactly what I said; they should have made the point with vaguer figures rather than such specific ones, which ruin credibility.
