An obsession with unearthing corpses suggests there is something of the night about the globalist left. There is relentless pressure to desecrate the mausoleum of former Spanish leader Francisco Franco (1892 – 1975) by removing his mortal remains.
Those who espouse Stalinist ideology never give up on their creepy taste for necrophilia. E. M. Godden, in Conflict in Spain, says on p. 72, ‘During the last week of July 1936, the bodies of nuns were exhumed from their graves and propped up outside the walls of their convents. Obscene and offensive placards were attached to their bodies.’
The Spanish Civil War (1936 – 1939) listed 731 Christian martyrs, who were sainted by the Roman Catholic Church in 2001 and 2007. In the canonisation of several martyrs, Pope Benedict said:
‘Adding such a great number of martyrs to the list of beatified persons shows that the supreme witness of giving blood is not an exception reserved only to some individuals, but a realistic possibility for all Christian people. It includes men and women of different ages, vocations and social conditions, who pay with their lives in fidelity to Christ and His Church.’
English historian Arthur Bryant, in his well-documented Communist Atrocities in Spain, tells of one murder squad which went to the Dominican Convent in Barcelona and informed the Mother Superior that ‘because of possible mob violence’ the nuns should accompany the squad to a place of safety. The sisters of Mercy were then taken to the suburbs and murdered.
The reason is given in an off-handed manner: ‘We needed the building. We didn’t want to mess it up before we occupied it.’
In Madrid, it was estimated that one-tenth of the population of Spain had been murdered by Republicans by 1939. It is on record that 6,832 members of the Catholic clergy, representing 20% per cent of the nation’s clergy, were killed.
In October 2008, the Spanish newspaper La Razon published an article on the number of people murdered for practising Catholicism.
In May 1931, 100 church buildings were burned while intimidated firefighters refused to extinguish the flames. In 1934, 33 priests were slaughtered in the Asturias Revolution.
3,400 ecclesiastics were slaughtered during the first stages of the civil war. By the end of the war, a total of 7,000 clergymen and 3,000 religious people had been murdered for practising Catholicism.
Soviet dissident and Gulag survivor Alexander Solzhenitsyn explained why we don’t read more about atrocities committed by the left. ‘Ownership of the media is in the hands of the perpetrators.’
Besides, journalism attracts those with liberal-left tendencies notorious for censoring genocide committed by globalists. These include atrocities committed by Republicans during and after the Spanish Civil War.
