Homosexuality: Nietzsche, Nazis, Now

The Pink Swastika“Among the several men who have been dubbed ‘the Father of National Socialism’ (including Jorg Lanz von Liebenfels), Frederich Wilhelm Nietzsche (1844-1900) is probably most deserving of this distinction, being so labeled by Nazi luminaries Dr. Alfred Rosenberg and Dr. Franck (Peters, H.F.,Zarathustra’s Sister:  The case of Elisabeth and Frederich Nietzsche,  221).  Others have called him the ‘Father of Fascism’ (ibid: ix).  Rabidly anti-Christian and a homosexual, Nietzsche founded the ‘God is dead’ movement and contributed to the development of existentialist philosophy.  Nietzsche’s publisher, Peter Gast, called Nietzsche ‘one of the fiercest anti-Christians and atheist,’ and described his book, The Antichrist, as a ‘ferocious curse’ on Christianity (id.,:119).”  Scott Lively and Kevin Abrams, The Pink Swastika:  Homosexuality in the Nazi Party, p. 68

“Most of the adult supervisors of the Hitler Youth were also SA officers (who were almost exclusively homosexual).”  Ibid., p. 32

“In Great Britain, the pro-Nazis formed the Anglo-German Fellowship (AGF).  The AGF was headed by British homosexuals Guy Burgess [part of the homosexual Cambridge Five and Soviet spy] and Captain John Robert Macnamara.” Ibid., p. 33

“In pre-World War II France, the pro-Nazi faction was represented by the Radical-Socialist Party (RSP) and the Popular Party (PP).  The Secretary-General of the RSP was Edouard Pfeiffer.  As a connoisseur of homosexual decadence, Pfeiffer had few equals in Paris.  As an officer of the French Boy-Scout movement, his private life was devoted to the seduction of youth.”  Ibid., p. 34

“President Barack Obama has proclaimed June 2011 ‘Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Pride Month.’”  The Daily Caller

“President Obama has appointed Kevin Jennings, founder of GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network)—which sponsored the conference that produced the notorious ‘Fistgate’ scandal (in which teens were guided on how to perform dangerous homosexual perversions including ‘f…..’)—to head up ‘Safe Schools’ efforts at the Department of Education.  Jennings is a vicious, anti-religious bigot.  He supports promoting homosexuality and gender confusion as normative to even young students.”  Atlas Shrugs

“One of the nation’s leading legal organizations is defending an evangelical pastor who was sued over his speech by a foreign group under a law that usually is used to target torture, genocide, war crimes and summary executions.  ‘This lawsuit against Rev. Scott Lively is a gross attempt to use a vague international law to silence, and eventually criminalize, speech by U.S. citizens on homosexuality and moral issues,’ said Mathew Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel.

“Liberty Counsel will represent Lively I the case brought in federal court in Massachusetts by a foreign group called Sexual Minorities of Uganda.  The premise of the lawsuit is the Alien Tort Stature, which provides a cause of action for violations of international laws that are ‘specific, universal, and obligatory.’

“According to Liberty Counsel, courts have found torture, cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment: genocide; war crimes; crimes against humanity; summary execution, prolonged arbitrary detention, and forced disappearance to be actionable under the ATS.  The Ugandans allege that beginning in 2002, Lively preached in Ugandan churches and shared his opinion on homosexuality and pornography.  ‘It further claims that as a result (albeit a convoluted one), some members of the so-called LGBTI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex) community faced discrimination, and one (SMUG Advocacy Director David Kato) was killed on January 26, 2011,’ Liberty Counsel reported. “The suit leaves out the fact that the suspected killer is a male prostitute with which Kato had sex and refused to pay.’

“’This suit should cause everyone to be concerned, because it is a direct threat against freedom of speech,’ Staver said.  Liberty Counsel’s announcement said the suit ‘is a direct attempt to silence Rev. Lively because of his speech about homosexuality and pornography.’

“The Supreme Court recently heard Kiobel v. Royal Dutch Petroleum on the issue of whether the ATS allows corporations to be sued.  Following oral argument, the court ordered a new briefing and will rehear the case in the fall o the broader question of whether and ‘under what circumstances the Alien Tort Stature, 28 U.S.C. /1350, allows courts to recognize a cause of action for violations of the law of nations occurring within the territory of a sovereign other than the United States.’

“Liberty Counsel said the case against Lively ‘is an example of why the ATS should not be used to allow a foreigner to file suit against a U.S. citizen in the United States, claiming a violation of some vague international norm allegedly committed in the foreigner’s home country.’

“I am an American citizen [being targeted] over the persecution of homosexuals as they define it as a crime against humanity—for speaking the truth of the Bible in a foreign country,’ Lively, of Abiding Truth Ministries, told WND shortly after the action was filed.

“It was brought by lawyers with the Center for Constitutional Rights in New York, which the New York Times described as left-leaning.

The New York lawyers claim Lively contributed to a ‘conspiracy to persecute “LGBTI persons in Uganda.’ The lawyers claim  Lively ‘and co-conspirators, [Ugandans Stephen] Langa, [Martin] Sempa, Minister of Ethics and Integrity James Buturo and Member of Parliament David Bahail coordinated a dramatic, far-reaching’ campaign.

“’Frankly, I don’t think this is actionable,’ Lively told WND. ‘They make it clear that this suit is…premised on speeches or writings.’

“Lively said he spoke to members of Parliament in their assembly hall and advised them to focus on therapy and not punishment for homosexuality. ‘What they’re suggesting here is that the duly elected legislative representatives of Uganda, the cream of Uganda society, cannot be responsible for their own [legislative] actions—that they adopted legislation because a white evangelical came and said something to them,’ he said. An attorney for the Ugandans alleged in an interview with the Times that the case is based on Lively’s conduct, not Lively’s speech.  Cited in the case are a number of Lively’s comments and statements.”

    What conclusions, if any are to be drawn here?

    BTW Nietzsche, although quite ill-liberal in outlook, hated anti-semites and nationalists.
