People (tankies) are trying to say tankie is used against communists other communists done like, this is simply not true. Do leftcoms, from councilism to bordigists, get called tankies? No. Do nihilist communists get called tankies? No. Trotskyksts and all their variations, except maybe the sparts, don’t get called called tankies, neither do eurocommunists.
It’s stalinists and that sort that get called tankies, naebdae else. Simple really
