King Juan Carlos Faces the Enemy
King Juan Carlos of Spain greets the leader of the communist-led leftist coalition that wishes to put him out of a job (notice the King wore a red tie for the occasion). The group, known as the "United Left" actually laid out for the King of Spain their hopes and plans for the eventual abolition of the Spanish monarchy and the creation of the 3rd Spanish Republic. I have every sympathy for the King of Spain in having to even speak to these people and it is to his credit that he is able to smile and bear it as a gentleman. Imagine the nerve of someone laying out to their monarch their own plans for his removal! Only communist criminals could look back at the history of republican Spain with all of the riots, chaos, massacres, oppression, atrocities, Soviet domination and civil wars and think that they should give it another try! I'm sure somewhere Generalissimo Franco was looking on and saying, "that's gratitude for you!"
