Like most little barbs Lou considers clever, it means exactly nothing. Have
you not noticed him applying it to Patrick Higgins, immediately after
reading an article in which Higgins wrote of the CIA's past support for the
Syrian Ba'ath and criticized its repression of Kurdish national
aspirations, which he supports? Or, more likely, not reading it.

When you see Lou write it, or anything of the sort, imagine a member of one
small Trotskyist sect calling a partisan of another a "Stalinist," and
you'll basically have the right idea. It's a combination of intellectual
sloppiness and rhetoric that - I guess? - is incendiary within an echo
chamber whose numbers might charitably reach the multiple dozens.
