    Wonderful pictures. It's a shame you didn't even mention the spansh republicas who actuallty liberated Paris under the ranks of the Free French Leclerc column. Despised obviously by spanish fascism, but also despised by allied capitalism. No surprise, you are all the same thing, so you support Svodova in Ukraine right now like you supported Franco in Spain and like you supported Mussolini in Italy until he thought otherwise. Congratulations. murderers. You are closer to Hitler than you would ever accept. Of course for you exterminating blacks or other "inferior races", like Churchill's governement concentration camps in Kenya and Malaysia in the 50's is the norm....It's only fascism when it happens to white people.Well, whoever reproduce this worldview is the scum of the earth.
