The Pink Swastika
Leave it to fundamentalist Christians to completely rewrite history to serve their own ends. I recommend you check out this article in Political USA about a book by evangelical loon named Scott Lively called “The Pink Swastika“. Scott is the president of the ultra conservative “Abiding Truth Ministries” who describes himself as “one of the most knowledgeable opponents of the homosexual agenda in America”. He’s also one of the unbelievably evil pieces of shit behind the “kill the gays” bill in Uganda. You could not have a more sinister opponent than this man.
He’s got some real gems in his book; specifically, he believes that Nazism was really a homofascist conspiracy, claiming Hitler’s top men were really bottoms. Of course, Scotty doesn’t need to bother with having to prove his insane claim: he just has to constantly repeat his lie until some idiot believes him.
“While we cannot say that homosexuals caused the Holocaust, we must not ignore their central role in Nazism,” the authors write. “To the myth of the ‘pink triangle’ — the notion that all homosexuals in Nazi Germany were persecuted — we must respond with the reality of the ‘pink swastika.”
I’m sick and tired of Christians accusing Nazis of being everything BUT Christians. What was the slogan emblazoned on the belts of the SS soldiers who whisked away Jews, gays, the mentally handicapped, and countless other minorities into the gas chambers? “God is on our side”. It’s a fucking fact the majority of Nazis were Christians. Of course they were; Germany was a heavily Christian country at the time, and their antisemitism was a direct consequence of their religion (remember that the charge of “Jewish Decide”, blaming the Jews for the death of Jesus, was only revoked by the Vatican in the 1960’s). Yet conservatives want people to assume fascism is a conspiracy of the left rather than one of the right, all to divert attention away from the fact that it’s much closer to their end of the political spectrum. The fact that the religious tend to be completely ignorant of world history makes books like “The Pink Swastika” the successes that they are.
We can’t let these revisionist liars continue to spew their hatred without consequence. We need to shame these morons before they brainwash their ignorant religious zombies into believing their ludicrous revisionist history. We cannot let fuckers like Scott and his ilk try and re-brand history to and whitewash the culpability of their faith in the murder of millions of innocents.
