Anti-tankie resources and notes
Modern use of the term “tankie” varies widely but tends to refer to those who white-wash or fully deny the crimes of both historical authoritarian-communist regimes and current tenuously socialist regimes. According to The Guardian, "tankie" is a term for Stalinists. The epithet has stuck because tankies also supported "sending the tanks in" in cases such as Czechoslovakia 1968 Prague revolt, Afghanistan 1979, Bosnia and Kosovo/a (in the case of the Serbian state), and so on (whereas the rest of the communist movement has gravitated towards anti-militarism). This document is a selection of trusted sources with information about socialism to make denialism, apologism and historical revisionism more difficult.
