Ach, du lieber!

Two notable points:

First, an uncontrollable urge to change fonts.

Second, through one of the many newsletters I receive that clutters my email for far too long, I learned of a place called "Conservapedia.com" that was started to compete with Wikipedia for it's alleged left-leaning slant. I've never really used Wikipedia before, nor have I ever used this font, but I decided to add Conservapedia to my favorites and I'll probably add it here as well.

From the Conservapedia article I was reading, I came across an article (or perhaps it was a book---it was rather long and I didn't read the whole thing) that was about homosexuality in the Nazi party. I had never heard of this before. I had heard of the homosexuals executed by the Nazis, but this is the first time I heard that such executions were less about the victims' sexual preference than for their opposition to the Nazi party. It seems that for all intents and purposes, the party was actually formed from a homosexual society, as they were rife in Germany from the late 1800's on and that Hitler was chosen as the mouthpiece due to his oratory prowess. The article spoke of Hitler's desire to hang with homosexuals and it referred to the many circumstantial points suggesting he might also have had those tendencies, along with other deviancies. One angle was that he wasn't necessarily even bi-sexual, but dug hangin' with homosexuals.

Also, the article spoke of two main factions of homosexuals in Germany at the time. One came from a 19th century dude who's writings lead to the coining of the term "homosexual", and this fellow (who was molested in his youth) believed he was a woman in a man's body. His was a feminine version that was snubbed by the other faction, which was comprised of much more manly homosexuals who were often pederasts. These guys sought to pattern themselves after the ancient Greeks and Spartans and from these came the Nazi party. It's a fascinating article (or book) and it seemed to draw from homosexual sources for some of the info it relates. I didn't think to jot down the author's name since I wasn't really planning to talk about Nazi homosexuals, but I would think that using the phrase "Homosexuals and (or in) the Nazi party" at google will get you there if you're interested. The irony for me is how conservative and/or fundamentalist Christians are called "Nazi-like" for their opposition to homosexuality and the homosexual agenda, when so many homosexuals comprised the upper echelon of the Nazi party during the 1930's and 40's. It was suggested that they were chosen for their willingness to get nasty. Ain't that wild?

Haben Sie einer gelt fur mich? Möchten Sie etwas essen?

Marshall Art said...

Nein. Ich habe kein gelt.

Nicht verstehe "Mochten".

ELAshley said...

Möchte Sie = "Would you like"

Turn it around... Sie Möchte... and you get "You would like"

etwas essen = Something to eat

German is a pretty cool language.

The book may have been "The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party." Fascinating reading. By Scott Lively & Kevin Abrams.

Homosexuals hate Lively, because he spends a lot of time exposing their frauds.
