kratz book

I approached the dread task of reading this book with the unprejudiced objectivity that was sadly lacking in Manitowoc County’s District Attorney’s Office during King Kratz’s infamous reign.  I would stress that even though the most casual research suggests that KRatz is an internationally hated figure, due to his alleged penchant for serious ethical violations, including but not limited to perjury; fabricating evidence; crimes against the poor and vulnerable; which are compounded by an alleged myriad of many, many other despicably craven acts.  I did not let my research of this alleged fiend prejudice my approach to KkKRatz’ self-proclaimed literary opus.

The foreword by internationally despised, reactionary cretin, Nancy Grace, proved an accurate signpost to the dire literary journey I was about to endure.   Sadly, any reasonable person’s thoughts after reading a quarter way through the book will be whether they can get a refund.  By midway through, a reader will begin to wonder did Hydrocodone have a guiding hand in KKRatz’ wordsmithing?  The seriously lengthy inventory of deepseated resentments towards people, places and things KKRatz spews out was impossible to ignore.  Around the the same point in reading KKRatz’s book one may experience an arcane revelation as to the true meaning of the term ‘vanity publishing.’

 
The only vaguely useful section of this Penny Dreadful is that it allows one to understand the psychopathy of the author.  One will instantly indentify parallels with the kind of mind that could concoct that detailed, graphic and grizly yet totally false account of T Hallbach’s demise at KKRatz’s infamously prejudicial press conference documented in the Netflix series.

 
By the time one has finished this highly narcissistic, polemical potboiler there will be real proof of KKRatz’s criminality as he is guilty of pickpotting the reader of £16 ($20).  On surfacing after the dive into this nadir of the lowest circuit of the literary sewer one may well immediately feel the need to take a shower.  There is absolutely nothing positive to state about the experience of reading KkKRatz’s Kampf except that positively nobody should ever be foolish enough to pay money for this bound myre of bile, fiction and nonsense.  However, if one has resisted the temptation to decant it swiftly into a neighbour’s bin, it may actually be worth keeping as a reference of sorts due to forthcoming legal developments….

The Lions of Rojava – The 21st Century’s International Brigades

The Lions of Rojava are Left-wing international volunteers who wage war, brothers and sisters in arms, in support of the Kurdish peoples against Turkish imperialism and ISIL’s fundamentalist brand of clerical Fascism.  Just as in the fight against Franco’s Clerical-Fascism in Spain during the last Century, the international volunteers come from a variety of backgrounds yet fight a common enemy, using a wide range of military ordinance.  The Lions of Rojava are attached to The Peoples Defense Units (YPJ/YPG) and together are winning significant military victories, however as in all wars the YPG/YPJ including volunteers of the Lions of Rojava have suffered casualties, many fatal.  Martyrs have laid down their lives many, many miles from their home countries, tragically reinforcing the range of international support for the Peoples Defence Units.

The current armed conflict is complex but it is well documented that Turkey, a willing client state of the USA, has persecuted, murdered, raped and repressed the Kurdish people for centuries.  Turkey has a long history of ethnic cleansing against minority people, including the Silent Holocaust against the Armenian people that saw the murder of over 1.5 million men, women and children that began in 1915.  The Turkish’s imperialist hands, both as the epicentre of the Ottoman Empire and with the dawn of Kemel Attaturk’s secular state, are literally dripping in blood.

In a statement on August 8 from YPG/YPJ, the Freedom Fighters said:

Suspected gunmen of the ISIL (Daesh) terrorist group last night, Aug 7, carried out an attack in the south of town Til Hamis, Jazira region, Rojava, Syria – targeting fighting positions of the People’s Defense Units (YPG) and the Women’s Defense Units (YPJ) in the location.

The assault which was tried at 23:00 on the village of Abu Hamal near the Khizela village led to violent clashes in the region. During fighting in this area a military vehicle of the attackers was destroyed, the assailants were eventually forced to withdraw as their attempt was troubled by a fierce resistance.

According to what has been verified from last night battle, at least 6 members of the terrorist unit were killed, as a weapons cache of 1 PKM, 2 kits and four hand grenades was seized by the Defense Units.

KOBANI, Sarrin – In the evening of August 7, terrorist forces of the ISIL group tried to complete another attack on the rural district of town Sarrin, southern Kobani, Rojava, Syria. Initiating fresh efforts, the enemy forces from western bank of the Euphrates River targeted strategic hilltops to the west of town Sarrin with heavy mortar fire, yet they faced a severe response from the joint forces of the Defense Units.

AFRIN, Rojava – On August 7 in Afrin region of Rojava, Syria, members of the Al-Nusra terrorist group led an offensive on the village of Darbalut, Jindiris County.

These terrorist elements last night pointed their fire on the civilian population on the noted village and tried desperately to advance near the location. Joint forces of the People’s/Women’s Defense Units intervened against the developments, engaged with the attackers at that point where 2 terrorist forces were killed. Fighting in place near the stated region continues sporadically using heavy weaponry by two sides.

All Socialist and freedom loving people should obviously support the People’s Defense Unit’s, whether by volunteering in some capacity, raising awareness in our communities, disseminating pro-YPG/YPJ propaganda or raising funds.  One can learn much more, learn more about the situation and learn how one can help by visiting:
