Republican Candidate Claims Holocaust Was Faked By Gay Nazis, Now Running For Governor

Submitted by: daegog 8 months ago in News & Politics

So was Hitler gay, too?

An excerpt from Newsweek: The author of a book claiming that the Holocaust was orchestrated by gay men who ran the Nazi Party will appear on a Massachusetts gubernatorial primary ballot later this year after garnering enough support at the Republican Party’s state convention last week. Scott Lively will now face off with incumbent governor Charlie Baker in September’s primary.

Lively wrote a 1995 book, titled The Pink Swastika, in which he asserted that the Nazi Party that took power in Germany in the 1930s was controlled by “militaristic” homosexuals who inspired the murder of around six million European Jews. The Holocaust also saw the persecution of a number of other groups, including homosexuals. Lively’s claims have been roundly debunked by historians.

The controversy surrounding Lively does not end there. He is the founder of an anti-LGBT group, Abiding Truth Ministries, which is listed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Lively is also staunchly anti-abortion. On his campaign website, he stated that “abortion is the intentional killing of a living human being and should be criminalized.”

He added that he “would work to ensure that it carried a serious penalty for anyone who deliberately and with premeditation kills an unborn child.”

Despite this, he received support from 626 of the more than 2,000 delegates at the Massachusetts Republican Party Convention, almost double the 15 percent required to get on the ballot.

Well a gopper can say anything, devoid of common sense, as their voters don't give a shit. Murica! Flag underwear! Woooo! 
I'm sure he has a mountain of irrefutable evidence that prove his hypothesis

littlemissqt What I learned through history is that candidates like himself are usually closet cases that end up being caught with their male patrons
