>I am cautious because leftists in particular might begrudge him for Franco.
Kind of ironic, given how he stopped a bunch of fascists from starting a coup in the early 80s.
>The King secured a huge contract for Spanish people.
>People give him shit because he got money for himself on top of it.
HE SHOULD BE LAUDED FOR THIS, NOT LAMBASTED.
Reminder that this King is the only one who told off commies:
There are loads of stories I've heard about Juan Carlos I. Supposedly when he was younger he would sneak out on his moped and drive around. There are stories of people stranded on country roads being helped by this guy on a moped, only to find out just before they were about to part that it was the King. They're just trying to sling any shit they can on monarchies nowadays, just like in Luxembourg they tried to throw shade on the Grand Duchess because of 'turnover.'
What minor fuckall complaints.
