Also Nationalists had a militaristic ideology.

This poll is biased because it does not take into consideration that the 'reps' were soviet backed commies. This is more similar to the vietnam war than you think.

Again with your generalizations, heil? Ironically, just calling the reps "commies" (which is a biased epithet and derogatory term), would be more biased than the info in this poll. Please make another one of your "Jewish USSR" polls and then talk to us about bias.

You forgot that the Republicans also were Basque, Catalonian, and Galician separatists.
MechVarg says2015-04-29T20:13:51.3877127-05:00
And Anarchists
Theunkown says2015-04-30T09:51:35.1137300-05:00
I put anarchists on there though I should have put the separatists as well, but weren't these separatists leftists anyway(if so they are already covered)
MechVarg says2015-04-30T13:40:29.9561465-05:00
Not necessarily. The Basques weren't.

Why the fascist, Rhodesia? Would you really trust that dictator?
MechVarg says2015-05-02T10:21:54.1237624-05:00
I started the Spanish Civil War polls *indignation*

MechVarg: In your poll, the Nationalists were popular, In my poll the Republicans are popular. I think we can both would prefer this one.
MechVarg says2015-05-02T10:39:56.2489215-05:00
Agreed
Theunkown says2015-05-10T12:00:46.2320000-05:00
It amazes me that so many people hate socialism (even if democratic) so much that they prefer a Fascist, Totalitarian, Theocratic dictatorship.
