Marxists drink only herbal or fruit teas..................
.........because they think proper tea is theft.
A pedant corrects:

Anarchists drink only herbal or fruit teas..................
.........because they think proper tea is theft.

The quote "Property is theft" is by the anarchist Pierre-Joseph Proudhon.

The statement "Property is theft was criticized by Karl Marx (a middle class man with a family servant) saying in his usual turgid way "But in spite of all his apparent iconoclasm one already finds in Qu’est-ce que la propriété’? the contradiction that Proudhon is criticising society, on the one hand, from the standpoint and with the eyes of a French small-holding peasant ... and, on the other, that he measures it with the standards he inherited from the socialists....The question is so badly formulated that it cannot be answered correctly. Ancient “property relations” were superseded by feudal property relations and these by “bourgeois” property relations. Thus history itself had expressed its criticism upon past property relations. What Proudhon was actually dealing with was modern bourgeois property as it exists today. The question of what this is could have only been answered by a critical analysis of “political economy,” embracing the totality of these property relations, considering not their legal aspect as relations of volition but their real form, that is, as relations of production.

If you tool a passenger who can drive you could take it in turns: One person driving and the other walking in front of the car carrying the requisite red flag, and swapping over when one or the other gets bored.
