The Elephant King Juan Carlos/EL REI ELEFANT JOAN CARLES

The Elephant King Juan Carlos

For Whom the Bell Tolls: King Juan Carlos plays at being Hemingway. Below: Juan Carlos swears before Franco in the Madrid congress to uphold the Fascist Monarchy.

The Fascist Monarchy is caught up in deep corruption but also has a history of gun incidents. Juan Carlos shot and killed his younger brother as a teenager after which his father gave him away to Franco. The Fascist despot raised him as his heir and the king has never sworn to uphold the democratic constitution, only Franco’s. He is officially a Fascist Monarch.

While ordinary Spaniards cope with harsh austerity, recession and soaring unemployment, the king has been enjoying expensive hunting trips, one of which resulted in Juan Carlos ending up in hospital after a fall in a park in Botswana. He is pictured standing proudly in front of a dead elephant. The photograph comes from the website of Botswana-based Rann Safaris, which had been taken down. The pictures also showed the king with two dead buffaloes. Shoots with Rann Safaris cost upwards of $8,700 a week, with an elephant costing a further $15,000 to kill. A day out with professional hunter Jeff Rann, pictured with the king, costs a further $2,000. King Juan Carlos has been involved in hunting scandals before. Six years ago officials dismissed as “ridiculous” allegations that he had shot a drunken Russian bear that had been plied with honey and vodka.

El rei elefant Joan Carles

Joan Carles jura davant Franco a les Corts de Madrid fidelitat a la Monarquía del Movimiento. Primera foto: Per qui repiquen les campanes: El rei Joan Carles juga a fer d’Hemingway.

La monarquia feixista es troba atrapada en la corrupció profunda, però també té un historial d’incidents amb armes. Joan Carles va disparar i matar el seu germà petit quan era un adolescent. Després d’aixó el seu pare li va regalar a Franco. El dèspota feixista el va criar com hereu seu i el rei mai ha jurat defensar la Constitució democràtica, només la de Franco. És oficialment una monarquia feixista.

Mentre els espanyols de carrer han de sortejar la duresa de l’austeritat, la recessió i l’augment de l’atur, el rei es dedica a costosos viatges de caça, un dels quals ha fet que Joan Carles acabés a l’hospital després d’una caiguda en un parc de Botswana. El veiem de peu orgullós davant d’un elefant mort. La fotografia ve de la pàgina web de Rann Safaris amb seu a Botswana, que ha estat ara treta de la xarxa. Les imatges també mostraven el rei amb dos búfals morts. La caça major amb Rann Safaris costa de $8.700 cap amunt per setmana, i matar un elefant uns $15.000 addicionals. Un dia amb Jeff Rann, el caçador professional de la foto amb el rei, costa uns altres $2.000. El rei Joan Carles ja ha estat involucrat en altres escàndols de caça. Fa sis anys la casa del rei desmentia com a “ridícules” les acusacions que havia mort un ós rus prèviament emborratxat amb mel i vodka.
