Franco ordered his officials to draw up a list of some 6,000 Jews living in Spain and include them in a secret Jewish archive. That list was handed over to Himmler. The original order instructed all governors to elaborate lists of "all the national and foreign Jews living in the province ... showing their personal and political leanings, means of living, commercial activities, degree of danger and security category [...] Their adaptation to our environment and their similar temperament allow them to hide their origins more easily"

In his victory speech in 1939 Franco denounced "the Jewish spirit which permitted the alliance of big capital with Marxists"

Franco didn't rush into WW2, instead, he chose to wait and see (and cashed a huge bribe (200 millions) from england to stay out at the start) like did Salazar in Portugal. When he felt that the Axis won't be able to win he ordered the destruction of the Jewish archives and started cleaning up his reputation with the US media by spreading stories of how Spain helped and sheltered some Jews (and hiding stories of how spain helped war criminals escape Europe to latin america)

So yes, he didn't kill Jews in Spain, but was prepared to do so had the Axis power lasted few years longer.

OK, so you agree.

Shit situation was a civil war
Hundreds of thousands of Christians killed
Do you want me to be sad they won against Communist in a bloody war and they survived
Hell no
Saying this I wish nobody was hurted on both sides
But it was killed or be killed
If you are a liberal, do you feel sorry for the victims in the Middle East

Why wouldn't I feel sorry for them?

You praise Che Gevara, I can praise Franco.

I don't praise Che Guevara (never have in my life).
Stop inventing shit.

Good job displaying your Christian morals by praising one of history's bloodiest dictators.

Must have learned that one straight from the bloodthirsty god you worship.

As a comedian recently said, what is it about Christianity (a leftist religion) that brings right-wingers to love it and Islam (a rightist religion) brings leftists to love it? :lol:
