American Family Association's Bryan Fischer: Hitler and His Nazi Henchmen Were Gay


Right Wing Watch reports that American Family Association's Bryan Fischer said on his radio show this week that Hitler surrounded himself with gays (not the effeminate kind, which he persecuted) because they were savage and brutal enough to carry out the genocide.

Said Fischer: "So Hitler himself was an active homosexual. And some people wonder, didn't the Germans, didn't the Nazis, persecute homosexuals? And it is true they did; they persecuted effeminate homosexuals. But Hitler recruited around him homosexuals to make up his Stormtroopers, they were his enforcers, they were his thugs. And Hitler discovered that he could not get straight soldiers to be savage and brutal and vicious enough to carry out his orders, but that homosexual solders basically had no limits and the savagery and brutality they were willing to inflict on whomever Hitler sent them after. So he surrounded himself, virtually all of the Stormtroopers, the Brownshirts, were male homosexuals."

  1. More simply put, never an individual, always a jew. Never an individual, always black. Never an individual, always gay.

  2. Bryan Fischer is a bigot, but this shouldn't brush under the fact that the Nazi movement did include gays, as does contemporary neo-Nazi and neo-fascist movements.

    There's something very gay about fascism.

  3. as a historian of the third reich and author of historical fiction set in the third reich I have read a lot of books and I mean a whole lot of books on the Third Reich including every single memoir in English written by a member of Hitler's entourage. They mention every private detail about him possible but none of them said he was homosexual. Many of these people such as his military adjutants were held for years in the USSR and interrogated by the KGB. Not one mentioned Hitler was gay. Nor did any of Hitler's entourage captured by the Americans and the British. The Allies interrogated Hitler's people using trained interrogators over a period of several years. Not one mentioned that Hitler was homosexual. I would like to see the historical evidence this man has. Charles McCain, author of An Honorable German

  4. 1) The leader of the SA/Brownshirts, who were the original private army that allowed the NAZIs to gain power was a mercenary and notorious homosexual, as were many of the leaders. He was Hitlers main internal political threat because of his popularity with his men. Hitler eventually formed the SS as his private guard and had them kill off his opponents, including the gay head of the SA. This is historic fact. The SA and SS had a notorious gay reputation in Germany, Hitler eventually saw he needed to hush it up because it was bad PR with the average German, so he cracked down, at least publicly, on the gay leaders and others. Again, historic fact.

    The NAZI leaders were pretty much all social misfits. Hitler was totally f'ed up and even at the time many questioned why he never married, had children. He had one notorious relationship with his underage cousin which ended with her committing suicide. Was he gay? Who knows, but why wouldn't it be possible? His relationship with Eva Braun has all the hallmarks of her being a beard. Other top NAZI were pervs, druggies, alcoholics, and so-on. The head of the airforce and probable Hitler heir, Goering, was a drug addict (heroin and morphine....Hitler himself was addicted to speed and possibly cocaine) and was also a cross-dresser. Historical fact. It doesn't mean of course that he was gay, just liked to wear woman's clothes.

    Allied intelligence also spread many rumors regarding NAZIS sexuality, including gay ones, as a smear campaign.

    What's rarely discussed is just how bad gay concentration camp prisoners were treated by their fellow non-gay prisoners. Often, the NAZIS didn't have to harrass or kill gays at all; their fellow prisoners bullied and even killed them. And after the war, gay prisoners were treated harshly by allied 'liberators'....again, historic fact.

    As a homosexual I can honestly say I've never seen anything that leads me to believe gays and lesbians have anymore empathy than anyone else. That's BS.

  5. @ MICHAEL--the reason andy and others like him report on "this crap" is because it's important to know exactly what our enemies are saying. simply ignoring it WILL NOT make it go away. facts and figures matter. look at the shit storm rachael maddow stirred up for rand paul, precisely because she was PAYING ATTENTION. we need more of this, because it will come back to haunt them.

  6. DH.. your right.
    As the saying goes:
    "Keep your friends close, but keep your enemies closer."

    We need to hear this. All need to hear this. Our un-attention is what got the religious right the upper hand in our political system, where it doesn't belong, in the first place.

    Your average american is so friggin' ignorant as to the 'facts' it's not funny.

    How do I know this...

    Shit, I'm surrounded by them, everyday.

  7. While I loathe everything about this person; I'm not surprised by the accusation - as extreme as it is..Hitler was likely a homosexual who hated himself - My Grandfather was a NAZI - not proud - just facts - and my Mother told me stories from a very young age - and one was regarding Hitler's sexuality. Is it really so hard to fathom - based on the Republican party and Catholic Priests we should all be used to those who lash out at that which they hate most about themselves.

  8. Dear Mr. Fisher,

    You have brought out the truth and many people today don't want to hear TRUTH - what you have shared is only part of how sin-filled our world is - which shows even more why our societies need the salvation of Jesus Christ for our eternal life the only way that forgives us of our sins, we all have sin and have a need of a savior today. GOOD NEWS: The Almighty God, who created the earth by speaking it into existence has made a way for us and that way is Jesus Christ - Be blessed continue to stand for TRUTH in Jesus Christ. Don't be bullied by the negative remarks sent your way. Remeber we fight a spiritual battle and we know that Jesus has WON the VICTORY. Thanks for being a man with a backbone, a Warrior for Jesus - it is rare these days. God Bless you. Mia

    Hitler was gay - and killed to hide it, book says

    by Kate Connolly in Berlin

    BERLIN -- Adolf Hitler was gay - or so says a sensational new biography on the Nazi dictator due to be published tomorrow.

    Eyewitness accounts from Hitler's former lovers, and historical documents that for the first time illuminate rumours that have circulated for over half a century, are disclosed in Hitler's Secret: The Double Life of a Dictator .

    The respected German historian Lothar Machtan even claims in his book that Hitler ordered the deaths of several high-ranking Nazis to prevent the secret of his homosexuality from surfacing.

    Ernst Röhm, the leader of Hitler's Sturm Abteilung or Storm Troopers, tried to blackmail Hitler by threatening to reveal his sexuality. Röhm, who was also gay, was murdered as a result, according to Machtan, a history teacher at Bremen University.

    He refers to scores of historical documents to support his thesis.

    In 1915, the young Hitler was a dispatch rider at the front in France. Years later, yet before Hitler became infamous, one of his fellow soldiers, Hans Mend, wrote in his memoirs: 'At night, Hitler lay with Schmidl, his male whore.' Schmidl, otherwise known as Ernst Schmidt, and Hitler were 'inseparable lovers' for five years, according to Machtan.

    Hitler's service notes read that as a result of the love affair there was reluctance among senior officers to promote him. According to Erich Ebermeier, a lawyer and writer who viewed Hitler's military files years later: 'Despite his bravery towards the enemy, because of his homosexual activity he lost out on a promotion to non-commissioned officer.'

    Police reports from Munich after the First World War also suggest that Hitler was pursued by police because of his sexual orientation. 'As a "brown" [fascist] activist, Hitler managed to lure many young men to his side, but not only for political reasons,' says Machtan.

    According to a Munich police protocol from the early part of the 20th century, a 22-year-old man called Joseph told the police: 'I spent the whole night with him.'

    Another, Michael, who was 18, told them: 'I had been unemployed for months, and my mother and my brother were always hungry, so, at his request, I accompanied the man to his home.'

    Another, a boy called Franz, said: 'He asked me if I'd like to stay with him and he told me his name was Adolf Hitler.'

    The police reports were collected by Otto von Lossow, a German army general who took part in suppressing the Hitler putsch in 1923. He kept the Munich police file for years, as, he described it, 'a form of personal life insurance'. If Hitler had attempted to push him aside, he would have blackmailed him with the information, he said.

    The police documents were published some years ago in Rome by Eugen Dollmann, a close friend of Heinrich Himmler's and also Hitler's interpreter. But because his book never appeared in German, the startling information remained largely overlooked by historians.

    Machtan says that Hitler was particularly drawn to Rudolf Hess, his deputy, who was known in party circles as 'black Emma' and with whom he had spent months in Landsberg prison.

    Why, then, did the Nazis persecute homosexuals, sending hundreds of thousands of them to their deaths in labour camps and the gas chambers?

    'Hitler himself never condemned homosexuality, but he allowed the persecution of gays in order to disguise his own true colours,' Machtan says.
