Hello all,

Before I get censorship for this thread, I must say that I don't see any disrespect in calling this person by his name only, without «Dom».

I think he is not entitled to be called a Duke, but even if I didn't, I could post threads here without mentioning any title. A lot you my fellow posters have called HIM the Czar of All the Russias «Nicky» and that doesn't mean they do not respect him. On the contrary. 

Now for the reason of this thread: you may all wonder why the reactionary faithful followers of Duarte Pio were absent from this forum for quite some days. The reason is: they are not many (not even amongst Monarchic supporters) and they have all been very busy elsewhere, with their most discussed bog of all time. Please do take a look: it is hilarious:

http://ponteeuropa.blogspot.com/2009/03/o-sr-duarte-pio-e-o-opusculo.html

It seems Duarte Pio wrote a small book about the canonized Portuguese soldier/monk D. Nuno Alvares Pereira.  :-[

In it, his writing in-capacities are, as always, obvious (his Portuguese is very limited). But there is more:
He claims that D. Nuno's horses passing through Cova da Iria (Fatima) in 1385 actually kneeled. They were aware that the Virgin Mary would show herself to the sheperds there in 1917!  :-[

500 years in advance, the «holy horses» had a religious experience that D. Nuno himself missed. Now that goes against anything we have ever known about canonization.  :o

Duarte Pio is the laughing matter of the whole country. Because of this booklet, many other things have been taken into consideration, like his past/present usurpation of the title of «Duke», his father who was not entitled to King Manuel II's legacy, etc., etc.  ;D

It's all out in the street now.

Hello again,
I see that the Duarte Pio supporters are answering this thread in other topics, so as not to lead people to this particular theme. My answer to them is: the blog I mentioned is not anonymous, it is written and signed by a teacher called Mr. Esperança. So, as you see, nobody is affraid to reveal one's identity when they speak for the vast majority of the Portuguese people.

No one doubts that in these grim days, the royal succession is indeed the great worry of the majority of the portuguese people, on whose behalf you are mandated to speak of course.

And who might be that teacher Hope I wonder ?
What a prophetic name LOL LOL LOL
