    What's wrong with that?

    Eva Duarte, called “La Santa” by the wild mob, was a friend, an admirer and a political ally of the ultra-Catholic fascist dictator Francisco Franco, an ally of the Nazis himself. The image of Eva Duarte appeared on the Argentine 100 peso bills years ago.

    General J.D. Peron himself decorated Gral Francisco Franco (dictator of Spain), Alfredo Stroessnerr (dictator of Paraguay), Augusto Pinochet (dictator of Chile), Nicolae Caucescu (dictator of Romania), Batista (dictator of Cuba) and Gadaffy (dictator of Libya).

    J.D. Peron gave asylum and refuge, in complicity with the Vatican State, to hundreds of Nazi war criminals.

    In addition, the Peronist government of Isabel Peron organized and financed the “AAA”, a far-right terrorist organization. The first victims of forced disappearance were during the Government of Isabel Peron in the year 1974.

    The Peronist is the only Argentine political party with its hands dirty, very dirty, with blood.

    They are not at all concerned about including an admirer of the Nazis on the bills...most probalby they are proud of being admirer of the nazis.

    I seem to recall they also had a picture of Julio Argentino Roca on a banknote.

    I bet that went down well with the native peoples, what’s left of them.
