The downward pink triange is the way
homosexuals were forced to wear it during
Hitler’s reign. Today, it is a homophobic sign.

Scott Lively’s book, “Pink Triangle,” is filled with venom and hatred directed against homosexuals.  The claim by Lively that homosexuals helped bring Nazism to Germany is based on fabricated lies.  Read what a Jewish historian has to say:

Jonathan Zimmerman, an historian at New York University, wrote the claim that gay people helped bring Nazism to Germany “is a flat-out lie.”[9] Zimmerman, points out that “Between 1933 and 1945, the Nazis arrested roughly 100,000 men as homosexuals. Most convicted gays were sent to prison; between 5,000 and 15,000 were interned in concentration camps, where they wore pink triangles to signify their supposed crime.” He further notes, “To win their release from the camps, some gays were forced to undergo castration. Others were mutilated or murdered in so-called medical experiments by Nazi doctors, who insisted that homosexuality was a disease that could be ‘cured’.”  In addition, “Hitler authorized an edict in 1941 prescribing the death penalty for SS and police members found guilty of gay activity.”

  1. The major citation in “The Pink Triangle” is Samuel Igra: “Germany’s National Vice” and forms the premise of this dubious thesis that the Nazi high command was dominated by homosexuals. Admittedly, homosexuals dominated Ernst Roehm’s 4-million-man paramilitary “Brownshirts”, but this organization had been utterly eliminated by Hitler in 1933 at the behest of von Hindenburg and the German army. In short, homosexuals had been purged from the government (with exceptions known today) 10 years before ‘the final solution’ was agreed upon and implemented. No known homosexuals were even involved — and, despite Igra’s unidentified and stilll-unknown sources, homosexuals do know their own. Igra’s book was published in 1945, far too early to assay the homophobic damages. Homophobia amongst the allies buried the crime until 1969 when, finally, homosexuals in Europe began writing memoirs of the 1930s and 1940s which, miraculously, they had survived. Igra’s claim was based largely on his theory that homosexuals had taken revenge (1943-1945) against the Jews for making homosexuality a sin and capital crime from about 0538 BCE, and argues that homosexuals were taking revenge against the Jews by doing unto them what the Jews and their Christian and Muslim successors had done to homosexuals. Would that a psychoanalysis of Nazism would be so simple that it would fit such a simple-minded pattern. Igra gives no sources for his claims, cites heresay and rumor as “known fact”, and his tome is so blatantly bigoted that it cannot be taken seriously in academia; nor is it. Igra was himself a Jewish heterosexual. Igra’s ignorance is so gross that he doesn’t even know that Wilhelm Canaris, head of Luftwaffe Intelligence, was an Allied spy or that he has regularly appeared on gay lists in homophilica as a homosexual — well before 1945. Likewise, Shear’s insinuation that Adolf Hitler was a homosexual because he had “a thing” for a member of his military staff is unsubstantiated pseudo-psychology worthy of an incompetent such as Simonides. That a Swedish psychiatrist had once suggested that Goering was ‘a sublimated homosexual’ because he was ‘artistic’ is as fanciful as the homophobic psychiatry of its day, and bears no credence today. Goering is a virtual icon of covetousness and heterosexual greed. It falls into the category of ‘bigoted assumption’, not history, not biography, and certainly not truth. The fact is, as Sir Francis Bacon suggested in the 17th century, gay men (“childless and unmarried men”) have contributed to civilization out of all proportion to their expectable number. Period — good, bad, and indifferent; but to assume that the Nazi regime was dominated by homosexuals is to ignore the pertinent fact that the Nazis enforced Paragraph 175 of the German Penal Code and came to power in 1933 in a homophobic coup d’etat which allowed von Hindenburg to recognize Adolf Hitler as supreme commander of the German army and the German state. Even to suggest otherwise is to ignore, distort, or simply lie about the facts of History (with philosophy and science, gay inventions from classical, homophilic Greece). It is high time that those misusing that gay invention to homophobic ends be cauterized from the history of the human race. They are bigots, they are liars, they are despicable self-serving homophobes whose self-indulgence will be corrected. As Albert Speer said to Paul Nitze at the Glucksburgschloss in Flensburg, days after he’d fled Adolf Hitler in his bunker in Berlin, the Nazis would have won WWII had their high command left off the bottle and had they not been womanizers. Except for the fact that Adolf and Eva Braun Hitler took last rites with a priest in the Berlin bunker, enough said.

    • Richard, Wow. You have given us all some really interesting information. You have a bright mind, Richard. I hope you challenge homophobia whenever it raises its ugly head. Good luck and thanks. paula
