You know, I'm not sure how I found THIS piece of garbage,
trawling about the web, but here we have an article, written in 2002 (which, really, isn't all that long ago...) by one Nathaniel S. Lehrman for the now defunct conservative rag "Insight on the News", which proves "without a doubt" (even though Lehrman offers no real or substantial evidence whatsoever) that, yes, Hitler was gay.
The most evil man in history was gay.
Just so you know.
(Funny, I don't remember seeing him at any of the Pride Parades...)
Not only that, the ENTIRE Nazi party was made up of gays! Who knew?
You know, I've met some mean queens in my time, but I would HATE to be at a white sale with THOSE bitches!
I thought this was a piece by The Onion at first.
But, no, it's real.
Sadly, depressingly real.
Of course, anyone not living under a rock knows that the Nazis famously persecuted and murdered gays.
But before any sensitive homos get their panties all bunched up, Lehrman has an easy explanation for that discrepancy: See, it was the MACHO gays (ie, Nazis) killing the SWISHY gays. Now it all just makes sense, doesn't it? Lehrman's "research" apparently involved watching the Al Pacino movie "Cruising" over and over, as well as skimming some truly questionable tomes with titles like "Homosexuality: a freedom too far".
Further investigation found that Lehrman is connected with the odious NARTH group, George A. Rekers, and some other old hateful closet-cases.
Lehrman ended his piece with this little tidbit:
"When will today's liberal supporters of homosexuality, organized and otherwise, recognize how deliberate defiance of traditional sexual morality can lead to that deliberate defiance of all traditional morality, which defined the Holocaust?"
Remember Matthew Shepard? This man helped bring that about.
I could see this bigoted, homophobic rant being written 50 years ago, or even 25.
But no: 2002.
Thanks a lot, internet, for introducing me to yet another evil moron.
