A US radio host has made the claim that “Hitler was trying to create a race of super gay male soldiers,” saying the “Nazi Party was homosexual.”

TruNews host Rick Wiles made the claim in an interview on Monday with anti-gay pastor Jeff Allen, saying that “if it is not stopped”, Christians in the US will face similar persecution that Jewish people did in Nazi Germany.

In the interview, posted on Right Wing Watch, Wiles said: “Hitler was trying to create a race of super gay male soldiers.

“It’s not an exaggeration to say ‘homofascist,’ because the German Nazi Party was homosexual. Hitler was a homosexual. The top Nazi leadership, all of them were homosexuals.

“They were creating a homosexual special race. That’s what it was all about. It wasn’t this thing about an Aryan race of white people, blue-eyed, blonde-haired, white people, Hitler was trying to create a race of super gay male soldiers.”

“If it’s not stopped, it will end up in America just like it was in Germany but it won’t be the Jews that will be slaughtered, it will be the Christians.”

Guest Allen chipped in to say: “Right. We haven’t gotten, fortunately, to the slaughtering part, but we’re getting to the point of the marginalising part. Marginalised, get us to the edge, remove us from any influence in society.”

He went on to say that gay people “are Nazi thought police and they’re going to be the worst kind of tyrants we’ve ever seen.”

“They’re going to hunt you down and they’re going to persecute you. That is the spirit that is alive in this country right now and is being embraced by political leaders in both parties, it is the new Nazism.”
