Celebrating a Rotten Century

The University of California at Berkeley has long been known as a hotbed of leftism, so it is perhaps not surprising that its Bancroft Library is now hosting an exhibit celebrating the centennial of the Portuguese Republic. I don't see what there is to celebrate, and condemn what looks like a thoroughly one-sided approach. Any California monarchists want to go protest? Incidentally, they don't even get their facts right: The Most Serene Republic of San Marino (est 301) is much older than any other European republic (and along with Switzerland one of the two whose existence I fully accept), making Portugal's the fourth oldest, not third as stated.

Down with the bloodstained illegitimate Republic! Remember the Regicide of King Carlos I and Crown Prince Luis!! Long live King Duarte III!!!
