I hate to admit it, but Defend the Family President Scott Lively, author of the "history" book The Pink Swastika, does has a point here. I myself have been witness to gay men's extreme brutality and cruelty. (Let's just say that I won't be wearing a navy blue v-neck sweater with charcoal pants to a certain karaoke bar again anytime soon.)

Right-Wing Radio Host Offers Startling Revelation About Adolf Hitler's Gayness That Nobody Else Has Ever Heard Of
Bryan Fischer isn't just conservative values radio host of prominent member of the right-wing American Family Association. Oh no! He's also an expert on history.
Well, World War II history, specifically.
Okay, Nazi World War II history specifically specifically.
Um, gay Nazi World War II history specifically specifically specifically.
Er, pulled-completely-out-of-his-ass gay Nazi World War II history specifically specifically specifically specifically. It's a niche subject, but apparently full of potential revelations. Such as…
"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 Browshirts, were male homosexuals."
Also, Mussolini was on the advisory board for ACORN. It's totally true.

I generally don't watch Saturday Night Live live on Saturday night these days, partly due to my Reaganomics theory of SNL viewing: If you're willing to wait a few days, the six-minutes of bits worth watching will trickle down to you via the Internet. (I'm pretty sure that's how Reaganomics worked, isn't it?) Sure, I might miss this week's installment of "The Big Ear Family" (or whatever) in which Miley Cyrus (or whoever) says something mildly out of character, but it frees up a lot of extra time for me to be cranky and judgmental.
That said, I just now discovered this bit about Arizona's not-at-all-racist new anti-brown-people law from Saturday's Weekend Update…
"I know there's some people in Arizona worried that Obama is acting like Hitler, but could we all agree that there’s nothing more Nazi than saying 'Show me your papers?' There's never been a World War II movie that didn't include the line 'show me your papers.' It's their catchphrase. Every time someone says 'show me your papers,' Hitler's family gets a residual check."
To be fair — as some Reddit commenters have already pointed out — there's maybe a few other things that are "more Nazi than saying 'Show me your papers,' " but I get his point.

Oh, Hitler. Always being told stuff, always getting angry. Will he never learn?

Just accidentally stumbled across this quote…
"I have been a racist since 1921. I don't know how they can think I'm imitating Hitler."
…..– Benito Mussolini
Hey, who can blame Il Duce? Can you imagine how mortifying it would be to show up at the Axis Spring Pageant and discover that you and der Führer were wearing the exact same antisemitic gown?
