So you acknowledge the fact that the "bad thing" which the "other people" did (which Franco stopped) was, namely, the murder of over 20% of all Catholic clergy living in Spain. Yet, inexplicably, you insist that stemming this mass slaughter was "all for naught". Correct me if I'm wrong, but as far as I know Spain during and after Franco has not been host to any anti-Catholic murdering sprees that I am aware of.

Exactly what did Franco do that is proportionate to the countless atrocities inflicted on Holy Mother Church by the Spanish Marxists?

It is interesting to compare Spain and France's situation in the same times.
While the Civil War was raging in Spain, the "Front Populaire" (socialists + reds) was at the helm with the slogan "Bread, Peace and Liberty" . Two years later the WWII began: In France, there were no more bread, nor peace, neither liberty. In the same time, Spain was slowly recovering and wisely avoided to enter in the war.
When WWIII was over, the commies no longer existed (and still no longer exist today) in Spain while Mr De Gaulle brought them back in France and presided shamelessly upon a government with communist ministers. In these times the communists weighed up to 35 p.c. on each election. One can say that the communist power in France strongly poisoned the politic and cultural life for at  least half a century. Even if today they weigh less than 5p.c. the media give them much more importance than they are.
Since there were no Nuremberg trials once the Communism fell in Russia, they are considered as democratic as other parties. But one must remember that they were the first collaborationists with the nazis when the GermanoSovietic Pact was signed in 1940
The liberals hate Franco because he beat them by playing by their rules. They hate him soo much 35 years after his death they still try to eliminate anything related to him in Spain.

They're not just trying to eliminate Franco's memory, but the memory of what the Reds did as well.
