Unclear sentence[edit]

Is it just me or is there something fundamentally wrong with the following sentece I have removed from the article:

She described the street-fighting in the context of a fascist anarchotrotskyist putsch ("anarchotrotskyist" is meant to include the POUM, a faction which the Stalinist Communists accused of being Trotskyist but which Trotsky himself repeatedly attacked. POUM itself resented Trotskyism, and never defined itself in relation to him.)

Please return it if it's OK. Thanks. --Technopat (talk) 03:11, 21 December 2008 (UTC)

I may be misunderstanding all the anagrams but doesn't Orwell's Homage to Catalonia support the statement that "... under the influence of the Stalinist Communist Party of Spain and its local wing, the Unified Socialist Party of Catalonia (PSUC)" and should perhaps be cited as such? --TBWRB (talk) 08:29, 2 April 2010 (UTC)

Obvious POV[edit]

The term Stalinist in slanderous and pejorative. You can say USSR-backed or Sovietphile, but the term Stalinist has been repeatedly rejected by Marxist-Leninists. If you don't change this, I will. Spartacus Marat (talk)

One of the few resources of this article is the propaganda work "Black Book of Communism". Not a surprise Trotskyist and anti-communists teaming together again. --Martxel Alexander (talk) 23:36, 23 February 2014 (UTC)

Stormtroopers?[edit]

I'm no expert on military history but were Stormtroopers really involved in this? Maybe it's just a term and I'm being stupid... Skunkman3118 (talk) 16:17, 17 November 2013 (UTC)

I'm uncertain they were involved, but stormtroopers is mostly a german-derived word for assault troopers (being the french-derived term) so it's a possibility given that the setup was still largely WW1 with slightly better kit. 216.252.75.220 (talk) 13:59, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

The retarded Trotskyists and anti-communists that made this article use that term for the Assault Guard. I'm translating the Spanish article that is more complete than this Church pamphlet. If somebody does not understand something once I end with the translation, please say it here. --Martxel Alexander (talk) 03:28, 24 February 2014 (UTC)
