Commies and fascists

Dress code, hand signals, and messiahs apart, there were few important differences between the Falangists and the Stalinists. Hence the bizarre nature of the punchup started by the former at a PR event the other day for a book (Santos Juliá, Historia de las dos Españas) promoted by the latter. Here‘s Arcadi Espada:

In a chapter of special interest the book demonstrates that the policy of national reconciliation, pushed by the Spanish Communist Party, had its origin in metamorphosed Falangists, children of the victors and converts to communism…, none of whom really considered their parents to have been war criminals. And so the Falangists go and smack up a man who writes that the Falangists originated the policy of reconciliation.
