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.

    This goes well with the whole tactic of “Intellectual Distrust” where, akin to the magical thought “If I don’t like it, it din’t happened”, facts are brushed aside. It sank down to the level of pathology, there’s nothing we can do.

    First, I absolutely agree that we must, at all costs, not allow those with an agenda other than that of objective truth dictate or revise history. Second, it is further a disgusting notion, and one akin to cognitive dissonance (for those who do know the history), to twist facts and make false correlations/causations. As is normal with any entity which has an agenda (religious included, obviously) that need not rely on facts or intellectual honesty, they must be rooted out and smothered into non-existence (non-violent, of course).

    Scott Lively is definitely in the closet.

    For the record, Scott Lively is the leader of the “Abiding Truth Ministries” who is registered by The Southern Poverty Law Center as a hate group. This guy is far in the fringe yet a tad less vocal than Fred Phelps.

    Sure, Hitler said he was a Christian but he didn’t live the teachings of Jesus. You want to associate a lunatic with Christianity to devalue Christianity. But my question to you would be what horrific atrocities that Hitler committed align with Jesus’ teaching?

    Was Nazism confined to Hitler alone? Was no one else a believer in your eyes, MBP?

    How about the antisemitism of Germans in light of their belief that Jews killed their savior. The hatred for the Jews existed long before Nazism, and was a direct consequence of your religion. The Christianity that you experience today was nothing like it was before, thanks to the Enlightenment.

    Point in undeniable fact: when a person was discovered as homosexual in Nazi Germany, or the surrounding areas, they were captured and often killed with just as much prejudice as Jewish people.

    The mere thought that anyone would use such a horrible time in the past as a way to lie is disgusting. It’s bad enough there are people who try to deny it ever happened but trying to twist it around and make it into a weapon makes this man the worst. Lower than dung that has sunk into the ground, he is.

    “Was Nazism confined to Hitler alone? Was no one else a believer in your eyes, MBP?” -Jake

    Of course, I’m sure that there were other Nazis who were Christian. I can only go off the comments of Hitler.

    “How about the antisemitism of Germans in light of their belief that Jews killed their savior.” – Jake

    Are you saying that antisemitism was something that Jesus taught? That makes complete sense, especially considering the whole Bible was written by Jews and Jesus himself was a Jew.

    Jesus teaching everyone to hate Jews would be the equivalent of Al Sharpton telling everyone to hate blacks because of a black on black killing.

    As a gay man I am more interested in facts not feelings. I am from Italy currently live in the United States. Everyone knows Hitler was in the closet along with many of his henchmen.
    Hitler was queer so what? When you deny the truth you become part of the problem-you appear to be covering something up. I have not read the book I don’t need to read the book-hitler was gay. Get over your hyper-inflated gay ego. You can’t even counter any of what was said in the book with facts. You base everything you say on feelings-feelings are not facts. I for one am tired of gay men and women more worried about “pride” than truth.

    MPB, you really need to get off Jesus’ nuts for a while and see the actual work of his “churches”. Anti-Semetism is a reality of Christian doctrine, specifically because the Jews rejected him as the messiah, and conspired to have him killed.

    If you doubt this is the case, then I suggest you read up on the history of violence, oppression and murder the Catholic Church had against the Jews throughout it’s history. I realize you have a big hard-on for Jesus, but that doesn’t mean you can just explain the actions of Christians with a simple “Well Jesus never said that” shit.

    As for Davide, if you have “facts” rather than your feeling that gays need to get over their ego, include it in your comments rather than use non-sequiturs.

    Sure, for a while, many Christians hated Jews but that doesn’t make it right. They were flat out wrong. There is nothing in the Bible that tells me to do anything but love everyone.

    “but that doesn’t mean you can just explain the actions of Christians with a simple “Well Jesus never said that” shit. “-Jake

    When did I try to explain the actions of Christians?

    Christians are terrible people. In fact I have a theory that Christians are the ones are are the most screwed up. Why? Because people who have it together believe they don’t need religion or a god to get through life. But those of us who are a little screwed up come to a realization that we can’t do it on our own and need help.

    Christianity is for the sick. Mark 2:17 “On hearing this, Jesus said to them, ‘It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.’”

    Hey I’m gay!!!! But many guys are not like me..they more interested in gay pride than gay truth. I am from Italy but now live in the USA, it is well known in Europe since the 1930′s that Hitler was gay as well as the Nazi henchmen, and all were also atheist. You know this correct but you are a coward. You have no interest in truth. Well shedding light on the truth. Not only do you appear to be a liar you appear to be silly. This arguement a child could defeat you in. Your argument is immature, uneducated and hyper gay inflated ego. I am gay but I freely admit many gay men-Hitler included were not nice guys and all dictators in the 20th century were atheist..and some gay like Hitler, Stalin and Lenin all atheist all gay and this is truth-deal with it!!!

    Excuse me, Da-vide (the fuck?), but if Hitler was in fact gay then why is almost as equally famous as a dictator as he was for being a loving and caring husband to Eva Braun?

    And why, also, was it that when a person, Jewish or not, was discovered as being homosexual they were tracked down, captured and killed with just as much prejudice as the Jews?

    I don’t deny the very realistic view that a gay person can be just as messed up and evil as anyone else. But you’re just throwing names around, picking some of the biggest and known names of the last century. And you’re the one who’s not presenting anything to back up these big names.

    Also, the phrase ‘god is on our side’ was quite a popular Nazi slogan… kinda brings into question your whole atheism thing.

    Please explain, ‘gay’ man.

    The Southern Poverty Law Center IS a hate group. Hitler’s Brown shirts were exclusively homosexual. You fascist neopagans only attack the religious to divert attention from the fact that you share Hitler’s Marxist views. Nothing you say can erase Hitler’s own words and policies. Just because Hitler was a national socialist instead of being a communist doesn’t change the fact that he persecuted Christians, Jews, the elderly, the deaf etc. long before the Night of the Long Knives and that he used tactics now seen in Occupy and the public sector unions and the Nazi party in NY and CA, which are groups populated primarily by angry queers. The fact is, Hitler persecuted the Jews and Christians because of their objective views on morality, views which stand contrary to post modernism, subjective morality and savage pre-enlightenment practices such as euthanasia, eugenics and the final solution to the human condition- industrialized mass murder. Ya’ll are accusing the majority of being secret Nazis when your Nazi buddies are in public view, announcing their views which mirror your own. No wonder you try to convince yourselves of lies on teh interwebs when your entire “worldviews” are wrapped up in a lie so contradictory to the truth. Your tiny socialist brains can’t handle your hypocrisy.
