Revisionist History at LifeSiteNews

Revisionist History at LifeSiteNews

Life Site News may well be the most dishonest Right-Wing Extremist site, but this article jumps out at me, not only for its obvious revisionist view of the Holocaust, but because its argument simply defies common sense in the most spectacular of ways:

BERLIN, Germany, May 28, 2008 ( - Berlin unveiled a monument yesterday to honor homosexuals as victims of Nazi persecution, despite a growing body of research suggesting that many prominent Nazi authorities, including Adolph Hitler, were themselves actively homosexual.

A report yesterday from the Associated Press on the new Berlin concrete monument, which features a video of two men kissing, claimed that up to 15,000 active homosexuals were killed in Nazi concentration camps.

"This is symptomatic for a society... that did not abolish unjust verdicts, but partially continued to implement them; a society which did not acknowledge a group of people as victims, only because they chose another way of life," said actively homosexual Berlin mayor Klaus Wowereit.

The latest push to portray active homosexuals as victims of systematic Nazi attack contrasted with a recently growing body of evidence indicating wide-scale Nazi embrace of homosexuality.

Thy then go on to report on research from a 2006 study, “The Pink Swastika as Holocaust Revisionist History."

You can read the study and believe whatever you want to believe, but to do so, you must believe this:

That a tiny and oppressed minority was so influential that it seized control of the most murderous regime of the 20th century, lost, and then, with its awesome power to rewrite history, (History is written by the losers, right?) did so with such a thorough attention to detail, that it has escaped the notice of all serious historians.

Somehow, I doubt it.
