By turning socialism into a “conservative-friendly” movement, they defang it and take away its revolutionary potential, and easily steer it to social chauvinist directions. There’s a long history of them doing this with labor movements, and this happened in almost every country going back to Lenin’s day.
This is why most of Marxism’s greatest works are polemics against social chauvinists / reactionary “socialists” ( state and rev, the renegade kautsky, reform or revolution, critique of the gotha programme ).

We don’t ban quickly, and if we do, its almost always temp bans, and usually with a warning, which we gave in this case too.
These patsoc threads lasted for days, even though we were warned about a few users in particular months ago.
Of course we’ll never ban anyone trying to learn about this topic.
The term patriotism isn’t usually used for that: MLs more often use anti-imperialist nationalism, but even that is rarely used.
Take Cuba or Vietnam: they stress proletarian internationalism, which is not a love of their own people alone, but love for all oppressed classes. This is why Cuba sent troops to fight against apartheid in Angola.
Of course not, we support the USSR and DDR here, neither were settler-colonialist states. The USSR and peoples in eastern europe were the victim of european colonialism in the form of nazism.
The nazis really wanted to emulate what the US settler project acheived, and they were explicit about that, and do to eastern europe what the US did to turtle island.
Thank you for your service comrade.
