Former Bush Administration Official Compares Fight For Marriage Equality With Rise of Nazi Germany: LISTEN

Reilly2

Appearing on the equally deranged Linda Harvey’s “Mission America” last weekend, anti-gay author and former Bush administration official Robert R. Reilly compared the fight for same-sex marriage to laws revoking citizenship of Jews in Nazi Germany, reports Right Wing Watch.

After demon-obsessed Harvey warned of coming “civil unrest and conflict” if marriage equality becomes a reality, Reilly attacked the totalitarian gay rights movement which is aiming to provide a “rationalization for sodomy”.

Harvey“I point to 1935 Germany as an analogy because that’s when the Nuremberg Laws were emplaced by Hitler’s regime which revoked citizenship to Jews and forbade Jews to marry non-Jews.

“Undoubtedly there were many fine people in Germany at that time who did not believe in the race theory of history and weren’t anti-Semites, but they probably said to themselves, ‘Well this is a losing cause, let’s just let this one go and move on to other things about which we can do something, move on to something else,’ and they probably didn’t admit to themselves the real fear they of what this would eventually lead to. Of course it led to the Holocaust, World War II and the death of 60 million people.

“And so too people today, now that we are entering the enforcement phase of the rationalization for sodomy, say, ‘Well, you know look at the media, look at the American elite, the heads of corporations, we’ve lost this once, let’s move on and pay attention to the economy and the creation of new jobs,’ probably because they are afraid and don’t wish to admit to themselves what the long-term consequences of this are going to be for American society and what else is going to be coming down the line”.

Later, Harvey attacked the “demonic” notion of accommodating gender-confused children, arguing that “people don’t mess with children like this unless there is a huge spiritual evil going on.”

Israeli Travel Group Offers First Ever Gay Tour of Auschwitz: VIDEO

   Ad

To mark the 70th anniversary of the Auschwitz liberation, Hebro Travel, a new Israeli tour company serving “gay Jews and those who love us,” is to offer the first ever gay tour of Auschwitz, reports The Jewish Daily Forward.

10616057_10152689450860552_4292009992408762534_nThe August Poland & Prague Pride Trip - which includes a Jewish heritage tour of the Schindler’s List route, visits to historic synagogues and stops at Auschwitz and Theresienstadt - will end with Prague’s Gay Pride festival.

Jayson Littman (right), the founder of Hebro Travel, says he has been asked “how can you go from touring concentration camps to celebrating Pride?”

The grandchild of Hungarian survivors of Auschwitz, Littman explains:

“I look at it the same way as Jewish trips that go from the camps to Israel to celebrate continuity.

“I knew I was touching on uncharted territory. I kept hearing, ‘Who wants to go on a trip like that?’ But many more people said it’s a wonderful idea. And surprisingly few people realize how many gay people were murdered in the Holocaust.”

With the trip still at the planning stage, he added:

“We’re working out details on the actual visits to the camps. It’ll probably involve laying a wreath, having a rabbi there from the local community, and inviting someone from the local LGBT population to speak as well.

“What’s been interesting is that every tour operator, Jewish or not, knows the Jewish stuff in these destinations. We’re having to fill in the blanks ourselves on some of the gay stuff.

“We’re showcasing how, after 70 years, Jewish life has blossomed, and gay life has gone through so many changes. An important part of this tour is appreciating the evolution of both communities, their contributions to society, and how governments around the world now welcome both minorities. Going to those places helps make that happen.”

New Tel Aviv Monument to Honor LGBT Holocaust Victims

A new monument set to be unveiled this Friday in Tel Aviv will pay respect to the estimated 15,000 members of the LGBT community who were sent to concentration camps under the Nazi regime. The Jerusalem Post reports:

Screen Shot 2014-01-07 at 9.18.17 AMThe monument will be shaped in the form of a pink triangle, reminiscent of the pink triangles LGBT community members were required to attach to their clothes in the concentration camps, and will feature short texts in Hebrew, English and German. 

Homosexuality was a felony under the Third Reich. The Gestapo founded an anti- homosexual unit that kept lists of nearly 100,000 names of people who were alleged members of the LGBT community. An estimated 15,000 of those were sent to concentration camps. In Buchenwald experiments were carried out with the intention of supposedly curing people from homosexuality.

Tel Aviv mayor Ron Huldai said, in a statement released yesterday, "This monument reminds us all how important it is for us to respect every human being. It is only natural that such a reminder will exist in Tel Aviv-Yafo – a city that warmly embraces all groups and minorities.


Justin Bieber Hopes Anne Frank 'Would Have Been a Belieber'

Belieber

So this happened:

The 19-year-old is due to perform tonight in Arnhem, around an hour from Amsterdam, where the Anne Frank House is situated, and visited the museum on Saturday night.

Staff from the museum wrote on their Facebook page: “Yesterday night Justin Bieber visited the Anne Frank House, together with his friends and guards.

“Fans were waiting outside to see a glimpse of him. He stayed more than an hour in the museum.

“In our guestbook he wrote: ‘Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber.’”

A ‘belieber’ is the name given to the singer’s fans.

American Family Association spokeshater Bryan Fischer today claimed that Christians are being victimized over gay rights like Jews were by Nazis, adding, "we're getting to the point where these homofascists are going to force us to wear on our sleeve some kind of identifying marker so people will know who the racists and the homophobes and the bigots are."

Grindr Tells Users to Stop Using Holocaust Memorial in Their Profiles After It Becomes a Trend

Apparently, attracting an online hook-up with a sexy profile photo taken with the asphalt slabs of Berlin's Holocaust Memorial as a backdrop is a thing, and now Grindr is distancing itself from the phenomenon after its founder previously appeared to endorse it, Salon reports:

Memorial_grindrIn the site’s early going, the proprietors bragged that the CEO of Grindr, Joel Simkhai, seemingly endorsed Totem and Taboo. “As a Jew and an Israeli, I’m deeply moved by how users are coming together as a community on Grindr to share and inspire others take part in memory of the Holocaust,” Simkhai told an Israeli newswire. But on Monday, Grindr press representatives told Salon: “Back in 2011, when Grindr was first made aware that a few users were posting an image of Berlin’s Holocaust Memorial in their profile, we observed that the user initiative was a novel form of expression.

“What started as users expressing themselves on a topic not often discussed in social networking profiles, has now become disrespectful.  We strongly encourage our users to engage in a respectful manner and honor the memory of those who perished in others ways outside of the app.”

The founders of Totem and Taboo, the site which has been aggregating the Grindr photos, say they are "proliferating": “We don’t really know what makes people pose there, and we’re not dealing with questions of intentionality in our project. We’re focusing on making the phenomenon visible.”
