Queen Elizabeth doesn’t deserve this sickening Nazi smear

Queen Elizabeth doesn’t deserve this sickening Nazi smear

At 89 years of age, and after so many decades of dedicated, loyal service to our country and her people, one would think that the magnificent Queen Elizabeth II would be respected and protected by our national media.
