Vile muppet Dinesh D’Souza is trying to whitewash the fact that Hitler murdered thousands and thousands of gay people. Hitler loved gay people! His evidence? That he supposedly didn’t purge the Brownshirts of gay people.
Hitler was NOT anti-gay. He refused to purge gay Brownshirts from Nazi ranks saying he had no problem as long as they were good fighters

This is the same nonsense that deranged bigot Scott Lively pushed in his book The Pink Swastika. Of course, a whole lot of history is being left out here. In 1933, the Nazi party began a serious purge of homosexuals. Ernst Rohm, founder of the Brownshirts (or Storm Battalion), lost his influence and gay groups were outlawed, as were gay publications. That led to the Night of the Long Knives, which murdered the leaders of the Brownshirts, in 1934. Gay men were then rounded up and put in concentration camps by the thousands, a great many of them victims of the Holocaust.
Heinrich Himmler then said that “the homosexual must be eliminated” and he led the purge of gays from the Nazi party and Germany in general. About 100,000 gay men were arrested. They did the same thing in the countries they took over and occupied, even castrating hundreds of gay men. Himmler in particular viewed homosexuality as a threat to Germany because it would reduce reproduction of the Aryan race. “A people of good race which has too few children has a sure ticket for the grave, for insignificance in fifty to one hundred years, for burial in two hundred and fifty years,” Himmler said.
Now, if murdering thousands and thousands of gay men doesn’t make Hitler anti-gay, what could those two words possibly mean?
