“The American homosexual movement really only began in the 1940s after the Allied defeat of the Nazis. …the center of international “gay” power in the world did in fact shift from Germany to the United States after the demise of the Third Reich. This represented a huge setback for the “gay” movement, requiring it to begin “from scratch” as it were, since America in the 1940s was at least as family-centered as Germany had been in the 1860s.”
“[Pollster Gary Gate's] best estimate, derived from five studies that have asked subjects about their sexual orientation, is that the nation has about 4 million adults who identify as being gay or lesbian, representing 1.7 percent of the 18-and-over population. …Gates observed that the 10% figure [often used by homosexual activists] was pulled from a non-scientific work by sexologist Alfred Kinsey, and that it was latched on to by gay activists as a useful ‘political strategy.’ …’It was a brilliant political strategy as a figure that was large enough to ‘matter’ but hopefully not so large as to threaten the general population,’ said Gates.”
“They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and revered and worshiped the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.”
Romans 1:25 (NAB)
Only in his dreams could Hitler have imagined the blatant homosexualizing of the German Wehrmacht. What Hitler could only dream of, the United States is poised to make fact, a scant sixty-six years after fighting a costly and bloody war to defeat Hitler and the Nazis. Link
Before I get ahead of myself, let me point out that the title of this article, and the article itself, are meant to be attention getting, but do not constitute a spurious ad hominem attack on homosexuality; they are designed to bring attention to historical facts that are of profound importance to the future of America (and the world).
To give credit where it is due, I first became aware of much of the material presented here after reading “The Pink Swastika” (4th edition 2002), by Scott Lively and Kevin Abram. The entire book can be accessed for free online (link given after the opening quote above). My reaction to the book was similar to Scott Lively’s reaction, “When I initially learned the truths set forth in ["The Pink Swastika"] I was first astonished and then angered.”
At the outset of this article let me reiterate that Communism and Fascism (of which Nazism is a subset) are both Far Left ideologies. That is not to say that they are “like peas in a pod;” they are not — nonetheless they are both left-wing, top-down, big-government social engineering movements.
Comparing the two is not like “apples and oranges,” but rather like comparing “oranges and tangerines.” Many of the left-wing’s “rank and file” are unaware that fascism is a left-wing doctrine, but their puppet-masters are well aware of it, and work in collusion with other Far Left doctrines — “united in hate,” as Dr. Jamie Glazov puts it. Link
The reporter/author Oriana Fallaci (1929-2006), who certainly knew the Left very well, wrote in her book “The Force of Reason” (2004), “…there are moments when I curse myself for not having understood it earlier: for having let myself be fooled by the two soccer-teams for so long. …It is a long-term ruler this Left that gave birth to Mussolini then Hitler, and always maintained its bond with their disciples. This Left which has always given trouble with its excesses and ambiguities, its brutalities and duplicities….”
An obvious place to start on the subject of homosexuality and the Nazis, is with Hitler himself. Was the Nazi leader, or Fuehrer (Führer), a homosexual? Although Hitler and the Nazi leadership went to great lengths to hide and/or destroy any incriminating evidence, the evidence that remains strongly suggests that Hitler was indeed a homosexual. At the very least, he was an extreme case of sexual dysfunction.
As Lively and Abrams put it: “The weight of the evidence indicates that Hitler was deeply involved in a series of short and long-term homosexual relationships. Even more certain is that he knowingly and deliberately surrounded himself with practicing homosexuals from the time he was a teenager. His later public pronouncements against homosexuality were designed to hide the life-long intimacy — sexual and/or homoerotic — which he maintained with the various men he knew and accepted as homosexuals.” Link
Before discussing the men that Hitler surrounded himself with, let us look into some of the roots of German Nazism. The historical sources of German fascism included an interest in Hellenic (Greek) traditions, and a fascination with the occult. Both of these interests were fueled by homosexuals, and when they merged into the Nazi movement, the homosexuals moved along with them. Before discussing Hellenism and the occult, however, it’s important to have some understanding of the difference between “Butch” and “Fem” homosexuals.
There are a number of words used to describe various types of homosexuals: Twink, Clone, Bear, Nellie, etc., but “The Pink Swastika” uses the terms Fem and Butch, and I will stay with their lead on this for the sake of consistency. The difference between Fem and Butch homosexuals is an important one, and something that most heterosexuals are unaware of. Link
Fems (Femmes) are homosexuals who are effeminate (“a woman trapped in a man’s body”), whereas Butches are ultra-masculine homosexuals. Contrary to what most “straights” think, the vast majority of homosexuals are Butch. Which means that unless they want you to know, you can seldom tell that a Butch is homosexual, as there are few, if any, tell-tale signs). Link Link
Corey and LeRoy’s book “The Homosexual and His Society” estimated that Fems make up only 5% — 15% of the homosexual culture. A recent survey taken of personal ads in homosexual newspapers observed that only 2% of them had a Fem theme — whereas 40% had a Butch theme (the rest were inconclusive). Link
Most heterosexuals think “effeminate” when they hear the word “gay” or “homosexual,” but that is a foolish, even dangerous, misconception. Most homosexuals are NOT effeminate at all. Regarding Nazi Butches, “The Pink Swastika” says, “In their view, heterosexuals might be tolerated for the purpose of continuing the species, but effeminate homosexuals were considered to be subhuman and thus intolerable. …Often these men, who so hated femininity, maintained a facade of heterosexual respectability throughout their lives [in most cases marrying a woman]” (Obviously cloning would be their preferred way to procreate, but that’s a side issue that I’ll leave for another day). Link
Lively and Abrams call the battle between the German Fem and Butch homosexuals a fight between “two irreconcilable philosophies linked by a common sexual dysfunction.” Nazis persecuted homosexuals to a certain extent, but it was largely a case of the Nazi Butches persecuting the Fems, rather than the Nazis persecuting homosexuals as a whole. More about that in a bit.
The “grandfather” of the world’s “gay rights” movement is considered by many to be a German lawyer named Karl Heinrich Ulrichs (1825-1895). He advanced a theory that homosexuals were a third sex, which he called Uranians (“Uranians of the world unite!”). Ulrichs picked the word “Uranian,” because in ancient Greece homosexual activities were said to be under the protection of the Muse, Urania. Urania is also, of course, the source for the name Uranus, the seventh planet from the sun (no snide comments please, we’re all adults here).
(Sidebar: Uranus is not the only astronomical body with homosexual connotations. Jupiter’s moon Ganymede is named after the victim of a pederastic rape by the Greek god Zeus. It is possible that the origin of the word “gay,” being used to denote a homosexual, comes from this source. The Roman word for Ganymede is Catamitus, which is the eponymous source of the English word “catamite,” meaning the submissive partner in a homosexual relationship. The night sky has a number of such homosexual references). Link
Ulrichs’ activities opened the way for an international homosexual movement, and Germany (especially Berlin and Munich) became the movement’s decadent “Mecca” (“Come to the Cabaret, old chum”). After Ulrich’s death he was succeeded by the homosexual Magnus Hirschfeld. Hirschfeld (who coined the term “transvestite”), started the ISR (Institute for Sexual Research), about which more will be said shortly. Both Ulrich and Hirschfeld were Fem homosexuals. Link
At the same time that Ulrich, and later Hirschfeld were trying to legitimize homosexuality, two seemingly unrelated strains of cultural elements were getting underway that would eventually merge and profoundly impact the Nazis — a German revival of interest in all things Hellenic (Greek), and a fascination with paganism (or the occult). Butch homosexuals were very influential in both movements.
The interest in all things Hellenic was especially attractive to the Butch homosexual leaders in the Nazi party, who were drawn to the ideal of “an ultra-masculine, male supremacist, homoerotic warrior cult.” It is of some importance to note that Greece was not the only culture to elevate the status of homosexuality, however.
Indeed, the German Butch homosexuals in the Nazi party were following in an ages-long global tradition of militant homosexuality and pederasty. From Rome to Babylon; from China to Borneo, homosexuality was an accepted way of life in many ancient cultures — pagan cultures. Link
It is from several of these pagan cultures that the Nazis drew some of their more famous (infamous) symbols, e.g. the twin lightning bolt SS runes, the skull and crossbones (Totenkopf), and of course the swastika. Link Link
Two of the leading lights of the German pagan movement were Guido von List (1848-1919), and Jorg Lanz von Liebenfels (1874-1954). Both of them worshipped Wotan (Odin), chief of the Norse gods, and both greatly influenced Adolf Hitler. Link
(Sidebar: It is interesting to note that we all still worship at least four Norse gods every week [albeit unknowingly]. That is: on every Wotan’s Day [Wednesday], Thor’s Day [Thursday], Tyrs [Teiws] Day [Tuesday], and Frigga’s Day [Friday]. Some folks believe that Sunday and Monday are named after Norse gods as well; while others feel that they are named for the sun and the moon. Saturday [named after Saturn] is the only day of the week that is free and clear of any Norse connection). Link
Lively and Abrams believe that List was a homosexual. He has been called “the Aleister Crowley (‘The Beast’) of Vienna.” Lanz (Liebenfels) was a homosexual and misogynist of the first order, who was kicked out of the Catholic Cistercian Order “for carnal and worldly desires.” He once wrote “Nature herself has ordained women to be our slaves.” He flew a flag with a swastika on it over his castle, some years before Hitler swiped the idea. Personally, I agree with Colin Wilson that “interest in occultism often involves a certain immaturity.” Link Link
I should also mention Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) as being an influence on Hitler. Both Nietzsche and Frederick the Great (a great homosexual) were important icons to Hitler. Nietzsche’s best known quote is “God is dead,” although he came up with plenty of other zingers, including: “Become hard and show no mercy, for evil is man’s best force,” and “Nothing is true so everything is permitted!” (similar to Aleister Crowley’s axiom “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law”). No wonder liberals love these guys. Link Link
The Nazi fascination with paganism and the occult brings up one of the important themes of “The Pink Swastika,” and debatably one of the most important notions to appear in a book about the Third Reich. Lively and Abrams feel that the animosity that the Nazis showed toward the Jews was fueled by, not only their eugenics/occult based belief in racial purity, but also their hatred for Jewish (and Christian) morality in general, and the Judeo/Christian proscriptions against homosexuality in particular.
I think they make a good case for their hypothesis. It may sound strange at first, but think about it. Homosexuality was widespread in the ancient world, and pagan cultures hated Judeo/Christian ethics and morality. The Nazis were (and are) basically a technologically advanced neo-pagan cult, with visions of ruthlessly imposing a Neitzschian rule of the elite on everyone. (Gee, if I didn’t know any better I would think that George Soros and his cronies have something very much along those lines in mind for us right now. You’ll recall that George has said that the year he spent under the wing of the Nazis, plundering Jewish property, was “probably the happiest year of my life”). Link
The thing is, if you destroy the roots of Judeo/Christian culture, you destroy Western civilization along with it (Is that Henry Higgins I hear, saying “By George, I think he’s got it?”) Link
That was Hitler’s game plan, and that’s the game plan for today: the regression of humanity to a pre-Judeo/Christian morality (or lack thereof), and the installation of a ruling elite to lord it over what’s left of “we the people.” Meanwhile our propaganda outlets entertain us with such weighty matters as the status of Weiner’s weiner. Christ on a crutch. Link
Be that as it may, let us return to the Third Reich. The Nazi movement really began when Hitler started to associate with Erich Roehm (Röhm) at a Bierkeller homosexual hangout in Munich. Author William Shirer in his classic “The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich” describes Roehm as “a stocky, bull-necked, piggish-eyed, scar-faced professional soldier…[and] like so many of the early Nazis, a homosexual.” Roehm was in anybody’s estimation a nasty, mean piece of work.
In 1923 Hitler, with the backing of Roehm’s SA (Stuermabteilung — Storm Troopers), attempted a coup on the government in Bavaria, Germany (the Beer Hall Putsch). The coup failed, and Hitler ended up spending nine months in prison, where he wrote his “textbook” for the coming fascist revolution, “Mein Kampf.”
Also jailed at the same prison were purportedly homosexual chauffeur, Emile Maurice, and close friend and aide, Rudolf Hess. Hess had nicknames among the Nazi inner circle such as “Fraulein Hess,” “Fraulein Anna,” “Fraulein Paula,” and “Black Emma.” Hess, like many homosexuals of the day, eventually married, but his wife complained that their love life was on a par with that of a “convent schoolgirl.”
Hitler’s infamous SA Brownshirt thugs, which Roehm led to a position of great power, were largely the creation of homosexual Gerhard Rossbach. Lively and Abrams write, “In the SA, the Hellenic model of masculine homosexual supremacy and militarism had finally been realized.”
Historian Louis Snyder observes that “what was needed, Roehm believed, was a proud and arrogant lot who could brawl, carouse, smash windows, kill and slaughter for the hell of it. Straights, in his eyes, were not as adept in such behavior as practicing homosexuals.” WW II correspondent H.R. Knickerbocker wrote, “unless a Storm Troop officer were homosexual he had no chance of advancement.” Link
The homosexual Ludwig Lenz, who was one of the Fem homosexuals in charge of the ISR mentioned earlier, said of the Nazis “…not 10% of the men who, in 1933, took the fate of Germany into their hands, were sexually normal.” He would know, as many of the Nazi leaders had been under treatment at his clinic.
After Hitler became Chancellor of Germany in January of 1933, the SA exploded from a force of around 300,000 men to about 3,000,000 in a year’s time. This created some problems for Hitler, big problems. Certain powerful interests in Germany, including the Wehrmacht, told him in no uncertain terms that either Roehm went, or they would pull their support from Hitler.
The result was “The Night of the Long Knives,” or the “Roehm Purge,” in which around 1,000 individuals, including Roehm, were murdered. Lively and Abrams note that “the Roehm Purge was not motivated by the homosexuality of its victims. The great majority of the victims were not homosexuals at all.” Hitler used the opportunity to rid himself of a number of political enemies — some homosexual, but most not.
Waiting in the wings was Heinrich Himmler and the SS (SchutzStaffel — Protection Squadron) who now came into their own. Himmler was deeply into the occult, and sent missions out around the world to track down various ancient artifacts (the inspiration behind the movie “Raiders of the Lost Ark”). Link
On a much more serious note, Himmler was in charge of the extermination of the Jews. The Nazis built around 10,000 work camps, in which many died, but they only built six concentration camps, or death camps, in which millions were murdered. The six killing centers were: Auschwitz-Birkenau, Sobidor, Chelmno, Belzec, Maidenek, and Treblinka. Link
Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, Supreme Commander of the Allied forces in Europe during WW II, had many photos and movies made of what the Allies found at the concentration camps. He knew human nature, and wanted records made because he believed that “the day will come when some son of a b–ch will say that this never happened.” Good call Dwight. Link Link
Homosexuals have taken to claiming to be victims of the Holocaust (Shoah), alongside the Jews. This is despicable nonsense. Less than 1% of Europe’s population of homosexuals were incarcerated by the Nazis (almost all of them Fems). The Jews, however, lost around 85% of their population, and they were almost invariably sent to one of the six extermination camps. The Nazi regime, for political reasons put on a facade of firm anti-homosexuality, but behind the facade it was a different story. As is always the case with the Far Left, it is not what they say, but what they do, you need to pay attention to. That their rhetoric is for show, misdirection, and cover is a given.
In a “Washington Blade” article, historian John Fouts reported that “about 50,000 men were imprisoned for homosexual ‘offences’ by the Nazis between 1933 and 1945. Most of them…were imprisoned for relatively short sentences and in regular German prisons, not concentration camps.” According to Lively and Abrams, perhaps as little as a few dozen, or a few hundred homosexuals were actually sent to a death camp. It is estimated that over 4,000,000 of the 6 million+ Jews killed in WW II were killed in the concentration camps. Link
The mind-boggling cruelty and ruthlessness of the Nazi death camps has been covered extensively elsewhere, so I feel no need to delve into it here, though I would like to point out a few facts. The bizarre and depraved atmosphere of Nazi fascism seems to have set free (or attract) an especially virulent form of sadism.
In his book “The Nazi Extermination of Homosexuals,” Frank Rector writes “As for the SS, their behavior was typical among those who engaged in sexual bestiality. An example is a film…that was secretly made for the pornographic enjoyment of a select coterie of Nazis showing a wild drunken orgy of beautiful boys and handsome young men being whipped, raped and murdered by the SS.” Purportedly, copies of this film are still making the rounds at certain exclusive circles in Europe. Link
Before we leave the subject of the concentration camps there is one special camp I want to discuss. Dr. Judith Reisman writes in her book “Kinsey: Crimes and Consequences” that the Nazi industrialist Alfried Krupp maintained a concentration camp for children called Buschmannshof. Dr. Reisman believes that Buschmannshof was one source for the child orgasm statistics cited in Alfred Kinsey’s “Sexual Behavior in the Human Male,” published in 1948. More about Kinsey shortly.
Reisman writes that “infants and children under six years of age were torn from their Krupp enslaved mothers and interned in Buschmannshof for their brief lives. Buschmannshof children died at the rate of some 50 per day for years….” William Manchester dedicated his book “The Arms of Krupp” to the unnamed, unknown, and unnumbered young children of Krupp’s Buschmannshof. Link
If you graduated from high school before, say 1990, you are probably aware that the Nazis lost WW II. I don’t imagine that they even mention WW II in school these days — or if they do, it’s probably portrayed as an arrogant imperialist expansion by that bad old purveyor of capitalist greed, the United States.
Be that as it may, it is now time to briefly discuss the ongoing homosexualization of America. After WW II the militant Butch homosexuals wasted no time in regrouping and going at things from a different angle. Nazis went underground, but they did not go away.
Communism and Fascists — Oriana Falacci’s two “soccer teams” — played together as one team after WW II. At least the various puppet-masters did; the “rank and file” apparatchiks remained largely unaware of the collusion. (They were later joined by the Islamist team, with whom the Nazis especially, had cultivated relationships with both before and during WW II). Link
Although homosexual activists like to play the “victim role” like a Stradivarius, the truth is far different. Lively and Abrams write, “The “gay” movement in America (as contrasted with the German version) is different in style but not in substance. It remains characteristically selfish and hedonistic, but more importantly it continues to be defined by what it is against: Judeo-Christian family-based society. …In their quest for power, Nazi homosexuals are no different from today’s ‘gays.’ Then, as now, the strategy was one of deception, infiltration, and subversion.”
In 1948, just three years after the defeat of the Nazis, Kinsey published “Sexual Behavior in the Human Male” (the “Kinsey Report”), which started off the “sexual revolution” in America (just weeks after the release of the “Kinsey Report,” Harry Hay launched the Mattachine Society — America’s first influential homosexual group).
Dr. Kinsey presented himself to the public as a white lab-coated paragon of respectability, professionalism, and honesty. Under his influence most of America’s laws criminalizing homosexual behavior were dispensed with. In truth, Kinsey was one sick SOB, but it wasn’t until the publication in 1997 of James Jones’ biography, “Alfred C. Kinsey: A Public/Private Life,” that the lid came off an especially disgusting can of worms.
Jones’ book “exposed Alfred Kinsey as a sadomasochistic homosexual who skewed his studies to validate his behavior.” That this perverted, pathetic, putrid waste of space could so thoroughly dupe the American public, professions, and legal system is almost beyond belief — but dupe them he did. Link
It didn’t hurt that there was already an underground network of homosexuals, or bi-sexuals, extant across America. For instance, John Maynard Keynes and a coterie of homosexuals had infiltrated Harvard, and then spread throughout American academia earlier in the century (see “Harvard, Homosexuals, and Far Left Fabians”). Link Link
In addition to Kinsey’s influence, just as in Germany, the churches were attacked both from within and without. Lively and Abrams observe that “few have noted the long period of “Biblical deconstruction” that preceded the rise of Nazism, and fewer still have chronicled the systematic perversion of German religious culture by the Nazis themselves. While the neo-pagans were busy attacking from without, liberal theologians undermined Biblical authority from within the Christian church.” Ring any bells? Link
The homosexual lifestyle is one that leads away from truth and sanity, in varying degrees. Dr. Brian Clowes brought to light the fact that eight of the top ten serial killers in the United States were homosexual “and that homosexuals were responsible for 68% of all mass murders.” Link
I don’t mean to suggest that most homosexuals are wont to bury their lovers/prey under their house like John Wayne Gacy, or save them as frozen left-overs a la Jeffery Dahlmer, but you have to admit, the fact that eight of the top ten mass murderers are homosexual gives one pause. Those are pretty impressive stats for such a small segment of the population. Link
Add to that the fact that the homosexual lifestyle is decidedly unhealthy, and you have every reason in the world to oppose the spread of this dysfunctional way of life. Don Hank suggested a few years ago that young men ensnared into homosexuality ought to look into suing the “gay” activist groups. After all, the homosexual lifestyle is a much unhealthier and deadly practice than smoking, and a number of people have successfully sued the tobacco companies. Peter LaBarbera of AFTAH (Americans For Truth About Homosexuality) has also promoted this idea. Link Link Link
If America is ever to get back on track it appears that it is up to “we the people,” or as BP chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg endearingly called us, “the small people.” (Yes Carl we know — you “misspoke.” You no doubt meant to say “the ignorant, gun toting, Bible clinging, inconsequential people.” We understand). Link
We understand that we are witnessing déjà vu all over again — that we are already feeling the effects of Weimar Republic-style hyper-inflation. We understand that QE (Qualitative Easing) is a recipe for financial disaster — the equation being, QE = PMM (Print More Money). Economics 101 shows the suicidal insanity of such a formula. Link Link
We understand that today’s militant “gay rights” activists are merely Roehm’s bully-boy brownshirts dressed in different clothes. Lively observes that “the ‘gay’ movement I have seen and investigated is neither benign, nor are its members ‘victims.’ It is vicious, deceptive, and enormously powerful. Its philosophy is Machiavellian and its tactics are (literally) Hitlerian.” Link Link
We understand that the lame stream media is in bed with, if not controlled by, Butch homosexuals. It is a propaganda machine that the Nazi Minister of Propaganda, Joseph Goebbels, would have given an arm for. Link Link
We understand that our government representatives do not represent us, and that their thinly veiled arrogance is emblematic of certain elements of Butch homosexuals, and other narcissists. Link
We understand that the same Nazi system that America fought a long, bloody war to defeat, is back wearing different clothes, but this time — this time the Fascists hold the reins of power in America. “We the people” understand all this, and we will do our best to restore America to the “bright shining city on the hill” she was meant to be — whatever it takes.

P.S. On the “keep your head down and powder dry” front, I highly recommend Syd Weedon’s article “The Psychology of Self Defense and the Force Continuum” — first rate stuff. Link
