The cater-wailings of "the fox that can not get at the bunch of grapes" have
now reached anti-communist campaign proportions.

A little verminous individual is raising his hand against the revolutionary
leaders of the proletariat while caricaturising Chairman Mao Tse-tung in the
most pure "post-modern revisionist style".

The campaigns engineered by various "one man proletarian parties" against
giants of thought such as Jose carlos Mariategui and Chairman Gonzalo, are
nothing but the most despicable opportunism collaborating overtly with the
Zubatovs and Trotskysm and aiming their puny matchstick spears against
genuine Maoism and the living revolution.

These individuals are proving incorregible.  Moreover, they have now adopted
the same SANCTIMONIOUS methods of Trotskysm screaming and alleging
"nationalist bias" when they are reminded of their condition of isolated and
forlorn individual citizens of oppressor countries, and shamed for the
crimes of their IMPERIALIST countries which today they replicate anew by
slandering the leading proletarian revolutionaries in the oppressed world.

They regard themselves as "Marxists" and scream chauvinism!  They are
completely shameless and moreover, totally ignorant, supercilious, idiotic,
and pedantic.

However, Karl Marx - himself a German - had this to say about this issue:

"In making their revolution, the Germans had to be punished for the sins of
their entire past.......  Even in places where the French came as enemies,
they were able to gain recognition and sympathy.  The Germans, however, are
recognised nowhere and find sympathy nowhere.  Even when they come forward
as the magnanimous apostles of liberty they are rejected with bitter
sarcasm.  AND RIGHTLY SO.  A nation which has allowed itself to be used
throughout its history as an instrument for oppressing all other nations, a
REVOLUTIONARY.  It must prove this in some other way than through a few
semi-revolutions, which have had no other result than to allow the old
indecisiveness, weakness and DISUNITY to CONTINUE IN ALTERED FORMS;
revolutions during which Radetzky remains in Milan, a Colomb and a
Steinacker in Posen, a Windischgratz in Prague and a Huser in Mainz, just as
if nothing had happened".

And more: "A revolutionised Germany would have to disown the WHOLE OF ITS
PAST, especially in relation to the neighbouring peoples. It had to proclaim
the freedom of the peoples it had previously oppressed, at the same time it
proclaimed its own freedom.  And what HAS revolutionary Germany done?  It
has completely ratified the old oppression of Italy, Poland, and now Bohemia
too, by the German soldiery...... AFTER ALL THIS, are the Germans really
asking the Czechs to trust them?  And are the Czechs at fault for their
unwillingness to attach themselves to a nation which oppresses and
ill-treats other nations while freeing itself?" (Karl Marx, "The Prague
Rising" N.Rh.Z., 18 June 1848)

What have the TEUTONIC KNIGHTS AND THE NUCLEAR VIKINGS of today done for the
revolution so that they may dare complain of "chauvinism"?  Nothing but hot
gas emissions and unnending slander and innuendo against all serious
revolutionaries spitting at every towering figure of the international
proletariat from the molehill of their puny insignificance!

Why should they not be met with the same contempt Marx reserved for the
Germans of the XIX century when parading themselves as "Magnanimous apostles
of liberty"?

What have they done - besides scribbling garbage (and nuclear garbage at
that) that should spare them outright rejection with "bitter sarcarsm" on
the part of those whose revolutionary work can do very well without their
idiotic and objectively counter-revolutionary behaviour sabotaging it so

All comrades should most strenously condemn the filthy behaviour of Rolf
Martens and his GERMANIC BUDDIES in slandering the revolutionary leaders of
the Communist Party of Peru, Chairman Gonzalo and Jose Carlos Mariategui,
and thus serving the enemies of the Peruvian revolution in the same manner
as all the sectarians and enemy agents.
