200px-Cover_of_The_Pink_SwastikaAnti-gay radical Christian extremist and gay hater Scott Lively, fresh from being denied his dismissal of the Crimes Against Humanity lawsuit, brought against him by the Ugandan human rights defenders, SMUG, for persecution on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity, has published an ‘Open Letter to Russian President Vladimir Putin’ congratulating him on his “unequivocal stand against this scourge” of homosexuality. Included in the letter is a gift from Lively to Putin, serving as an opportunity to further their friendship in homophobia and anti-semitism.

It’s hard to find a few representative quotes to include in this blog post when Lively has said so much, and all repeat his regular talking points –  homofascism, Nazism, implacable militancy, exploitation of children, only 2% of the population.

Here is the letter in its entirety:

”     An Open Letter to President Vladimir Putin

August 30, 2013

President Vladimir Putin
Russian Federation
23, Ilyinka Street,
Moscow, 103132, Russia.

Dear President Putin,

On behalf of millions of Americans and Canadians who are concerned about the seemingly unstoppable spread of homosexuality in our countries and internationally, I wish to respectfully express my heartfelt gratitude that your nation has take a firm and unequivocal stand against this scourge by banning homosexualist propaganda in Russia. You have set an example of moral leadership that has shamed the governments of Western Europe and North America and inspired the peoples of the world. Already Lithuania, Moldova, Hungary and the Ukraine have begun to follow your principled example, and you have engendered real hope in the international pro-family movement that this destructive and degrading sexual agenda might finally begin to be brought to a halt across the globe.

As a long-time leader in the pro-family movement who toured your country in 2006 and 2007 advocating the very policy you have enacted, I want to caution you not to assume that you have fully solved the problem by the enactment of this law. The battle to protect your society from homosexualization has only just begun, and you may be surprised to discover in the coming months and years just how aggressively many world leaders will work to try to intimidate and coerce you to capitulate to homosexualist demands.

Few political agendas in the history of mankind have marshaled the tenacity and resolve of the homosexualist movement. Its activists are driven by an implacable militancy and a zeal to advance their own self-serving interests that rivals even the most fanatical religious cults. A glimpse at the spirit behind the movement can be seen in the Bible in Genesis 19:4-11.

In just fifty years this marginal group representing only about 2% of the population has, through sheer will-power and intimidation, gained more political influence in the legislatures and courtrooms of the western world than the Christian church. The sexual conduct that defines their identity as individuals and as a movement was almost universally illegal and unlawful during the years our two nations were allied against the threat of Nazism, but just a little more than half a century later homosexualist leaders and surrogates sit in a majority of the seats of power across the west, and increasing in the east and in developing nations as well.

In readying your society to recognize and counter the efforts of the militant gay movement it is important to understand that their propaganda and policies adhere invariably to the narrative that all disapproval of homosexuality leads inevitably to hatred, violence and murder of homosexuals. All of the pro-homosexual policies in the United States and Europe rest on this unstated and unchallenged but fictional premise. Thus, the homosexualist movement is not simply seeking social tolerance, or acceptance, but political power and control. They want the power to stamp out all disapproval of homosexuality in your society and to compel every citizen (especially the youth) to embrace the view that homosexual conduct is good and normal.

They ask for a place at the table, but once they have one all the social ideals they exploited to get there, such as social tolerance, freedom of speech, and respect for cultural diversity, are discarded.  In place of those ideals is inserted a new backwards and upside-down morality and world-view that condemns all disapproval of homosexuality as a new fictionalized form of bigotry. I have termed this phenomenon “Homo-fascism” and defined it as a form of extreme left-wing, regressive radicalism which seeks to establish rigid authoritarian controls over all public discourse and government policies regarding sexual norms and proprieties, and to enact punitive measures against conscientious objectors that would punish or suppress all disapproval of homosexuality and related sexual behaviors (that would of course even though they deny it, quickly include a sexual indoctrination and exploitation of children).

In the coming months and years Russia and Her people will be increasingly portrayed by emotion laden and abusive hyperbole as bigoted haters, intent on exterminating homosexuals. Indeed, the propaganda campaign on that theme has already been initiated , with video footage purporting to show Russian neo-Nazis beating homosexuals now being circulated on the Internet, along with the false implication that this is the intent of your policy. This same propaganda machinery and methodology has been grinding away against the country of Uganda since 2009 when it introduced (but never passed) its Anti-Homosexuality Bill (AHB) that I agree was far too harsh but which never reflected any intention of the Ugandan government to exterminate homosexuals as “gay” activists and their media allies continue to allege.

Indeed, this “gay” narrative that equates opposition to homosexuality with Nazi-like genocide is in part an attempt to obscure the ugly roots of the modern homosexualist movement in pre-Nazi Germany. German fascism was formed and facilitated by masculine-oriented male homosexuals in response to an effeminate model of homosexuality which held that all homosexualist men were actually female souls trapped in men’s bodies. Beginning in the 1860s the Femmes, following the Grandfather of Gay Rights, Karl Heinrich Ulrichs, built a powerful social and political movement in Germany which focused on repealing the sodomy laws.

Offended by the constant characterization of male homosexuality as effeminate, the masculine-oriented Butches created their own movement grounded in the male warrior-cult philosophy epitomized by ancient Sparta. These were the first German fascists and from their ranks came first the Brown Shirted brawlers of World War I and then the Nazi Party. This thesis is heavily documented in my book The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party, which I co-authored in 1995 with researcher Kevin E. Abrams.

Along with this cover letter, I am enclosing a copy of The Pink Swastika (Fourth Edition) in English that is autographed by my co-author and I. We will soon be completing a long-delayed process of publishing the book in Russian, and hereby pledge that we will dedicate the Russian version of The Pink Swastika to the Russian Government and Her People. It will be our honor to send the very first copy of the Russian version to you.

Once again, thank you, President Putin, for standing firm in defense of the natural family, which is the essential foundation of all human civilization. Perhaps through the inspiration of your leadership, an alliance of the good people of our countries with those of your own, can once again in some cooperative fashion, redeem the future of mankind from a Fascist Leviathan, just as we did in World War II.

I hope that Vlad Putin enjoys reading his autographed copy of The Pink Swastika along with acknowledgement of the company he is now keeping. Though perhaps they are just two peas in a pod of hate.

  1. This “open letter” by Lively is nothing less than an admission of guilt. A Russian LGBT organization should bring the same charges against him in the USA as what SMUG did, and put him on trial for global human rights atrocities, and not just in Uganda. The overwhelming weight of evidence should put him away for at least 50 years.

    1. That’s what we are all hoping will happen for Lively and his influence in Russia & other former Soviet countries. The SMUG case is civil, not criminal, so there will be no ‘putting him away’ sadly. The lawsuit though seeks to stop Lively from further spreading his hate.

      1. Not criminal? That’s just obscene… I don’t see how any kind of civil claim will stop him. This guy is interfering in the foreign policy of the USA, and in the domestic affairs of foreign countries, inspiring the persecution and advocating genocide – and he’s not even trying to hide it! No civil case without jail time is going to prevent him from hopping on a plane to incite more hatred and intolerance or influence some other country to follow Uganda and Russia’s example! Something has got to be done to bring him to book for his crimes against humanity and to prevent him from doing more harm!

        1. Yes, the Alien Tort Statute which the lawsuit is brought under is civil: “The district courts shall have original jurisdiction of any civil action by an alien for a tort only, committed in violation of the law of nations or a treaty of the United States.” not criminal.

          And I don’t think in these days of Skype, Google Hangout, etc. live streaming keeping him off planes will help either. But I couldn’t agree more that he needs to be muzzled!

          1. There has to be a way to nail him for incitement to murder – surely that isn’t protected by freedom of speech – especially where adequate evidence exists to demonstrate the consequences of his words and actions with deliberate intent to cause harm?

              1. I know – that’s why he’s called a “revisionist” and a holocaust denialist. He’s a monster that should be put out of business. Even so, there is one worse than him – the man whose “research” he draws on, like all anti-lgbt hate-mongers – Paul Cameron. Kick open any homophobic nest of hate and you will find evidence of Cameron’s complicity.

                1. It’s usually safe to imagine that as soon as Lively opens his mouth, or puts pen to paper, nothing but lies will result.

                2. Hi Christina
                  I pressed a button on my site and noticed many comments. So apologies for not responding sooner.
                  Trish and I have left Canada and we are house-sitting in Europe. I still follow the monster. There has to be a deep psychological mess for Lively’s kind of response

        2. Christina, Unlike South Africa where hate Speech is criminalized, the USA considers it a First Amendment Right., So we have people like SCott Lively, the KKK and The Westboro Baptist Church saying things that could feasible and may well actually result in assaults and deaths. I think if Lively loses the case and has to pay money it will really hurt him. And it may stop him trying to influence persecution. The case against him is based on “his actions” and not “his speech” – of it were base don the latter we would have a First Amendment Right issue. But it is his ACTIONS and not his WORDS that he is being sued for,

          1. Lively wrote on behalf of Canadians too, and Canada has hate speech laws. It may be possible to prosecute if he ever visits Canada.

          2. I understand that all too well Melanie😉 However, I think it’s high time that someone highlighted the similarities between negotiating a contract-killing and what Lively has been doing – or comparing it to him firing a shot in the air and calling it an accident if the bullet actually kills someone. The quote from one of your articles about this case, where the judge highlighted that “hate-speech and incitement to commit harm” is not protected by freedom of speech is what makes me shake my head. After all, Dr Goebels of the Nazi party was convicted and executed and surely “all” he did was to speak and write anti-semitic propaganda without ever picking up a gun or killing anyone with his own hands? Lively should be convicted under the same laws – if not in the USA, then under other laws, perhaps under the UN. I sincerely doubt, if you look at the spirit of his writing to Putin, that he will suddenly feel “too impoverished” to write more letters or books to inspire yet more hate – or to find more friends in the religious right to sponsor it.

            1. I completely agree with you. His claim to victimhood is based on what he calls his right to free speech. It touches a nerve with many Americans who ought to see it the way you and I do Christina. Your analogies are perfect!

  2. Reblogged this on JerBear's Queer News, Views & Memories and commented:
    Public Enemy #1 for the LGBT communities.

  3. I agree he’s a public enemy, but I haven’t given him a number like you. I just blogged
    details of scary countries with death penalties. Saudi Arabia, Iran, Gambia are still stoning, decapitating and hanging LGBTI and heterosexuals, too. Like this site (which I admire so much) I have been following the violence against LGBTI in Africa and Jamaica, to name just a few countries.

  4. Scott Lively’s book, “Pink Triangle,” is filled with venom and hatred directed against homosexuals. The claim by Lively that homosexuals helped bring Nazism to Germany is based on fabricated lies. Read what a Jewish historian has to say:

    Jonathan Zimmerman, an historian at New York University, wrote the claim that gay people helped bring Nazism to Germany “is a flat-out lie.”[9] Zimmerman, points out that “Between 1933 and 1945, the Nazis arrested roughly 100,000 men as homosexuals. Most convicted gays were sent to prison; between 5,000 and 15,000 were interned in concentration camps, where they wore pink triangles to signify their supposed crime.” He further notes, “To win their release from the camps, some gays were forced to undergo castration. Others were mutilated or murdered in so-called medical experiments by Nazi doctors, who insisted that homosexuality was a disease that could be ‘cured’.” In addition, “Hitler authorized an edict in 1941 prescribing the death penalty for SS and police members found guilty of gay activity.”

  5. I think Lively ought to move to Russia- since he obviously feels much more attuned to the Nazi-like regime/culture of Herr Putin vs. the ideals of fairness & equality that have made the United States the amazing country that it is.

  7. How evil could one be???. A latent homosexual with an agenda, abysmally ignorant ranter who call himself a Christian heaven help religion if he is representative. How deep is his moral morass. He should move into the deepest cave in Russia and repent while adoring Putin & Kirill . Barbarity is his forte.

  8. Mr. Lively conversion therapy is a fraud. Commit to psycho therapy it will prove far more beneficial. Better yet save yourself a few bucks and just “COME THE FUCK OUT ALREADY”!!!! Everybody knows you’re a MO. Including your wife. Short of that just pay one of your rough tradesman to snuff you.. Thank you in advance.
    p.s. I never post such dark comments but i am truly sick of these hateful religious hypocrites.
