    Final hours of Spanish poet Federico García Lorca revealed

    One of the great mysteries of Spain's recent history may have been solved by a local historian from the southern city of Granada, who claims to have found the real grave of the executed playwright and poet Federico García Lorca.

    Miguel Caballero Pérez spent three years sifting through police and military archives to piece together the last 13 hours of the life of the author of Blood Wedding, Yerma and The House of Bernarda Alba, who was shot by a right-wing firing squad early in the Spanish civil war.

    He now claims to have identified the half-dozen career policemen and volunteers who formed the firing squad that shot Lorca and three other prisoners, as well as the burial site. And he blames Lorca's death on the long-running political and business rivalry between some of Granada's wealthiest families – including his father's own García clan.

    Why are most artists and writers left leaning ? Is it because they have souls ?

    Too many leftists today consider the arts ‘elitist’ - which is why they’re busy removing it in schools and force feeding gender crap instead.

    Franco was not perfect, but I dare you to find a politician which is even close to being perfect?

    Left wing artists and writers are mostly hypocrites like Lorca who was an elitist who lived in relative splendor while he claimed to be "on the side of people who have nothing". Churchill said it best "if you aren't a liberal at 25 you have no heart, if you aren't a conservative by 35 you have no brain".

    No, Churchill said no such thing. It was stupid for you to fall for such a fake quote, being that Churchill was conservative when young and liberal when old.

    In general, individual people get more liberal as they age. That's expected, as maturity and real world experience creates liberals better than anything. Older generations are more conservative because they started more conservative, not because they become more conservative as they aged.

    As far as Franco goes, the Spanish are digging him up. They've decided he was fascist scum, and doesn't deserve his fancy tomb. They're right. Naturally, all the conservatives here still support Franco, because they support all fascists.
