I've seen this pattern before. It happened to some of those who opposed the excesses of feminism back in 2013-2014. Mens Rights Activists became the mirror-image of what they claimed to opposed.

What do you not get about intersectionality meaning everyone with a grudge makes a common cause with communists?

Socialism is when the government does stuff and the more stuff it does the more socialist it is. When it does a real lot of stuff. It’s communism
