So says an article on The New Civil Rights website. It's nothing new. They're just regurgitating old Scott Lively blather about the gays being solely responsible for the rise of Nazism, the Holocaust, and the horrors of WW2. Lively is an attorney and a religious fanatic who makes Tony (the PAC man, not the actor) Perkins look like Harvey Milk. He is sewn together of homophobic cloth from the rainbow flag shredded by his vociferous vehement vile viciousness in taking a cue from the old S.A., whose head was an openly gay butch guy, Ernst Rohm, done in after the Night of the Long Knives, where the homoerotic S.A. was slaughtered by the S.S. The latter group would become Hitler's private army. When one confronts Lively, as I have, with the pink swastika armbands and the fact that thousands of gays were exterminated along with Jews, gypsies, and "undesirables" of all stripes, he claims it is propaganda. I see no difference between Lively (and now Breitbart, whose founder himself was outed in a tell-all book) and Ahmadinejad, who claims that the Holocaust never happened (when he is not telling everyone there are no gays in Iran). This is a vicious libel against all lgbt-queer people. Come to think of it, evangelical types like to link atheists to Joe Stalin as well as Hitler. The Devil is the god of those one personally dislikes.Photo captioned "Deadly Scott Lively"
No surprise here. Few conservative commentators lied so proficiently as Breitbart. His legacy carries on.
So ol' Schiklgruber was on the down-low, eh? Someone had better tell Eva Braun that one! Man, how STUPID can these people get? [pretty damned stupid!]
Pretty damned stupid is right Loren! Scary Stupid!
We have also told that Hitler was atheist. These people think that real history is useless and has to be revised to serve their purpose.
Isn't it a page from the book of Herman Goering, the propaganda minister under Hitler? He is notorious for saying that if you lie often enough and big enough people eventually will take the lie for truth. This seems to me what Breitbart and others were and are up to. Religion works the same way. There is a show tonight (5/14), incidentally, on the Westboro Baptist Church. It's on PBS, followed by Frontline.
It was Josef Goebels, the propaganda minister, who said;
Thanks for the correction, Nappy. I was almost certain I had it wrong but didn't Wiki check it.
I'm glad to be of help James
Interesting post, James.
Goebbels, the more I learned about him the more I found him intriguing. Did you know the last line of his diary was, “I have always hated humanity.”? History will have to admit he did a pretty good job of exacting revenge.
He was a polio victim and cripple. He must have had a bitch of a time in school in younger days for him to become such a misanthrope. So I believe Mr. Lively should be more upset with bullies than gays. There’s a much stronger connection as to the cause of WWII.
Consider today’s schools here in America. Bullies are the cause of much more suffering and misery than gays.
In commenting after a yahoo article about gays, some man wanted to move somewhere that there were no gays. My comment to him was move to Iran because there were no gays there. A third person simply could not believe how dumb I was, and wanted to know where I got my information. From the Iranian president, of course. Just a few days prior he had remarked that he didn't understand all of this stuff. Iran had no gay people.
As for Mr. Wolf being gay, I seriously doubt it. A famous wartime psychologist who had never met him did claim that Hitler had one undecended testicle. I'm surprised they didn't try to tell us the size of his penis.
That's funny, DMP. Ahmadinejad knows better. Persia was for centuries a mecca for homosexuals and mystics, e.g. Mansur al-Hallaj, who was both. He was savaged by the Islamic leaders because he wrote Sufi poetry. His biographer spoke of his being a habitue of the salons of homosexuals, which may have hastened his demise as much as his supposedly heretic rantings. Sir Richard Burton claimed that Persians were wont to claim that women were OK, boys were better, but melons were best. No gays in Iran. Ha ha ha. It's like saying there are no gays in West Hollywood.
Next they'll be saying John Wilkes Booth was gay. And conspired with Hillary Clinton to assassinate Lincoln. And Stalin. And Pol Pot. And Idi Amin. And the Assassination of Kennedy was a gay plot.
