  1. I love your show, but the war wasn’t simply about fascist and democrats, there were plenty of communist on the republican side, I’m not saying is as simple as that either, but look at the Latin America who fell for the left ( Cuba, Venezuela) and the Hispanic countries that went for the right ( Spain, Chile) and the difference is obvious on where you or I would choose to live

  2. I don't think anyone visits the tomb of Franco to make sure he is still dead, Rick. The people who are against honoring a dictator and maintaining his mausoleum simply wish it didn't exist in a country that considers itself democratic. Regards… I love your videos.

  3. oh, you get to take pictures of Guernica, but no one else does. 👎🏻 boo. j/k man, love the show.

    it is something amazing to see in person though. was there a few months ago.

  4. Yeah, I hope we don't have that in the US where there is constant persecution by the left of the democratically elected officials. The attacks by liberals in the media are nonstop.
