A far right evangelical Christian commentator has asserted that today's progress in LGBT+ rights is really all part of a "homosexual fascist movement" in order to take over America and persecute Christians because Hitler's original Nazi movement was simply a cover for a master race of gay super soldiers.
It is an inescapable part of political discourse today that no matter what the topic being discussed in media, Hitler and/or the Nazis will certainly make an appearance in that discourse. This is known as Godwin's Law. This is especially true when dealing with fringe opinions.
Rick Wiles, an evangelical christian commentator and dare I say a wee bit controversial, took his argument on why the Nazi movement was actually a gay movement to his show on TruNews where he spoke with fellow evangelical, Indiana pastor Jeff Allen. TruNews rather ironically claims to be a "news source" which is based in Christian orthodoxy. Apparently Wiles has forgotten about all the LGBT+ victims of the Nazi's eugenics programs and the original meaning of the pink triangle.
Wiles found a rather sympathetic ear in Allen, when he said:
It's not an exaggeration to say homofascist because the German Nazi Party was homosexual, Hitler was a homosexual, the top Nazi leadership, all of them were homosexuals...they were creating a homosexual special race...It wasn't this thing about an Aryan race of white people, blue-eyed, blonde-haired, white people, Hitler was trying to create a race of super gay male soldiers. That's what he was creating...If it's not stopped, it will end up in America just like it was in Germany but it won't be the Jews that will be slaughtered, it will be the Christians.
And Allen responded:
Right. We haven't gotten, fortunately, to the slaughtering part, but we're getting to the point of the marginalizing part. Marginalized, get us to the edge, remove us from any influence in society.
Sure thing, buddy. I will get right on stopping my agenda, right when I finish polishing my bronze statue of the fabulous führer, instead of, you know, decrying everything he did according to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum:
As part of the Nazis' attempt to purify German society and propagate an 'Aryan master race,' they condemned homosexuals as 'socially aberrant.' Soon after taking office on January 30, 1933, Hitler banned all homosexual and lesbian organizations. Brownshirted storm troopers raided the institutions and gathering places of homosexuals.
