I've heard the term "anti-sectarian sectarianism" before, but I don't
think I've ever seen quite so clear a textbook definition.  Seriously,
I cannot see the difference between your spitting at the people in the
umpteen sects and the declarations of those sects that they are the
vanguard, that they have the right program, whatever.  Just because the
actual prospects for Marxists in the United States range from sorely
lacking to positively wretched doesn't mean that you're *better* for
spitting at them.
