Spain's communists should remember that there are eventual repercussions to everything, and that their hands are soaked with the blood of the innocent.

The Socialists and Marxists now in power in Madrid (since the "impeachment" earlier this year of the former Conservative Prime minister) just can't accept, in 2018, that their forefathers 80 years ago lost the Spanish Civil War, so as any self-respecting Leftists, they want to re-write History and naively believe that removing the Caudillo's coffin from the Valle de los Caidos will change the course of History. While they are busy fighting a lost war, they forget to manage pressing issues like the terrible economic situation (20% unemployment), the illegal migrants problem, the Catalan separatism, etc.
I'm very pessimistic as to the future of that country that seeme more and more to fall in a former Yugoslavia -style scenario..

Right..but will see if they dare..a lot of saber rattle is heard.
They are bashing something nobody remembers to gain notoriety..but in Spain there are many Francoists.
Franco created Spain from scratch. The same democracy was designed by Franco and Americans.
Indeed, commumist under the order of Stalin killed many peple. shooting and infamous chekas
Yes, we have an onimous Front Populare, but it won't last.
We might need another Alzamiento.





No, the so called left are descendants of Franquistas and Falangistas, there was even a minister that was the daugter if a minister during Franco, Many have falangista fathers,

On the other hand, the father of Casado, the leader of the conservative leader, war imprisoned many years by Franco.

Maay socialists like Felipe Gonzales came from Sindicatos Verticales . Falange, serious unions that protected workers

They choose Franco to dodge problems, but they do no have much left in governemnt

Default Rewriting history

No different than the Liberal mindset here in the United States, constantly renaming roads, schools and taking down monuments in order to white wash history in order to appear to correct what they perceive to be an injustice in the past.

If Liberals wanted to really do that, then they would have to do away with the United States completely, for no one has suffered as much as the native Americans. Dare I say they had it worse than slaves; yes slaves were treated horribly and punished, but they were not exterminated en masse. People always talk about the holocaust in Europe, but no one ever wants to admit of the holocaust here in what is now the United States.

Some reading this will know what I speak of, but most will brush it off, and I would expect it as most (Americans) are ignorant of the TRUE history of what happened to the native Americans.

You and golgi are lost. Franco butchered the anarchists. He has no respect for human life. And his goal was only ever power for himself.

Please, with your sermonizing. The "anarchists" butchered innocent citizens, like typical communists, and got what they deserved. As they always should. Non-European outsiders, such as yourself, should not be cheering them on. You have zero place in this argument. Worry about Central Asia, from where you hail.

As if communists have any respect for human life. See the hundred million dead at their hand in the 20th century, and that's if we exclude the military dead from the wars that would not have occurred if not for their existence.

Why is it that Hispanics are continuously so enamored with the Marxist system that has only led to their misery in Latin America and widespread misery in Europe? Is it the promise of free resources? Work harder like everyone else.

We're used to lazy communist propaganda in regard to non-communists who kill communists. Its exactly the same in every generation. The communists in the USA have even become so lazy so as to use it for Trump, as we speak. See here:

https://www.theatlantic.com/politics...-reign/568480/

Its nothing but repetitive (over generations) and ultra-lazy propaganda by the same people who used it to foment the Russian Revolution and eventually massacre the monarchy. Its exactly the same, and completely mailed-in. You can save it.

Spain has other problems that should be solved before this, such as salaries, health, education, unemployment, etc.
