How can anarchists be tyrannical?
Very easily. A group of people can easily take on a sort of "hive mind" in which they get whipped into a frenzy by their own actions and commit acts of violence and hatred against others.
Any mob in history that has murdered people is proof of the possibility of tyranny in anarchy. Of course, this doesn't mean that anarchy always results in tyranny, just as Lenin's actions are not proof that Marxism always results in tyranny.
