Gays Are Using Nazi Mind Control on Christians, Says Far-Right Aussie Politician

Michelle Meyers of Australia’s extreme right-wing One Nation party thinks that gays are using Nazi mind control techniques to get Christians to accept same-sex marriage.

Meyers is One Nation’s candidate for Bateman, Australia. Last November, she took to Facebook to write a bizarre post about why so many Christian churches are beginning to accept marriage equality. Her explanation? Nazi/Soviet mind control, obviously.

In a Facebook post screencapped by Out in Perth, Meyers wrote:

“It’s a carefully contrived but disingenuous mind control program, melded together by two Norwegian homosexuals who graduated from Harvard… Utilising many of the strategies developed by the Soviets and then the Nazis, they have gone on to apply and perfect these principles so as to make them universal in their application—but with devastating results considering the counterproductive nature of such “unions.”

(via Out in Perth)

Sure! We all know that Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union were super pro-LGBTQ (lol no). But we’re trying to figure out what these Christian-manipulating gay mind control techniques are exactly. Here’s what we came up with:

  • Pulsing dance music: perfect for hiding backwards-masked subliminal messages
  • Glitter: for hypnosis (like a watch)
  • Rewriting Genesis 9:17 to insert a positive reference to rainbows
  • The most recent season of Drag Race (it’s really, really good)

 

Of course, there are alternate theories. It could be that churches are evolving to reflect the social attitudes of their times (as they tend to do, slightly, eventually), or that Christians are finally learning to truly embrace Christ’s message of love.

But nah it’s probably Nazi mind control.

    Michelle Meyers, you don’t have much of a mind TO control so consider yourself safe and keep taking your meds.

    I find it particularly offensive when individuals like Ms. Meyers try to justify their bigotry and dishonesty by comparing us to Nazis. I feel certain they do it intentionally to twist the knife of prejudice a little more destructively, because they know that the Nazis actually hated us, as they do, and sent us, along with Jews, Gypsies and the disabled to their ghettos and then on to the death camps to be exterminated. It takes a special level of hatred, bigotry and entitlement to accuse victims of Nazi extermination policies of being Nazis, and Ms. Meyer more than meets that test. She wonders why Christians are supporting our equal rights instead of seeing us as unnatural, unhealthy and unproductive and not made in God’s image. The answer is that they are following the teachings of Jesus Christ. I would ask her why, if we are so terrible, unnatural and unproductive, she and others cannot make a case against equality for us without resorting to lies, defamation, insults, and misrepresentation of the religion that most in our community share with them. She says that we are unnatural. But, we know now that homosexuality exists in all living species in pretty much the same representation as in humans. Christians believe that God created the earth and all that is on it, giving only humans added intelligence and the power of reason. Those other species live their lives acting on instinct. That means that they cannot choose their behavior or their orientation. They are, then as they were intended and created. Since a significant percentage are homosexual, that means that God intended them to be homosexual. The same is true in humans. When something exists throughout nature, it is by definition natural. So, Ms. Meyer’s assertion that we are unnatural is untrue, and in condemning us and urging others to condemn and hate us, she is advocating hatred for a creation of God and she is second-guessing his plan for the world — a strange choice for someone trying to pretend piety and moral superiority.

    At 67 and having survived cancer (lymphoma – in remission for more than 13 years), I am in good health and work hard to stay that way. But, I am certain Ms. Meyer raised the issue of health to raise images of HIV/AIDS in the minds of her audience, and I am happy she did. When HIV/AIDS began killing the members of our community in the early 1980s, it was devastating. Heartbroken and unsure what to do, we asked for assistance from governments at every level, as well as charitable institutions, corporations, and others we thought could help. In virtually every case, our requests were rejected or ignored. Those rejections were something of a blessing in disguise, since they stung us so severely that it galvanized us and made us for the first time unite into a community with a shared purpose — taking care of our ill and dying friends, raising money for research and treatment methods, and creating a political arm to lobby and represent our interests in our society. As we began caring for our own, we asked that at least the available medical and treatment information that was being used be made available to us. Overwhelmingly, that request was also refused. But, that made us more determined, and in short order, we were able to take care of our own and organize successful charitable institutions that were able to assume that responsibility (and today, they care for those who have any illness in our community and also serve those who are ill from any community). We raised enormous amounts of money and channeled it into research organizations that produced excellent results more quickly than even we thought possible — and along the way, despite the treatment we received, our findings were share throughout the world. Our political organizations raised our profile, showed that we are a significant voting force and finally we began to receive some attention and assistance from some in government. In less than a generation, acting almost entirely on our own in this country (in other countries, our communities were luckier), HIV/AIDS went from being a death sentence with a relatively short life expectancy to a disease that for most people today is a chronic, but treatable condition. Since Ms. Meyer raised our health as an issue, she should have to face the reality that we took health seriously and improved our situation considerably,with progress still being made. Our progress has become progress in Africa, where HIV/AIDS affects heterosexuals in overwhelming numbers and we will continue to assist those countries — despite the fact that many of them have laws encoding hatred of us. Ms. Meyer also calls us unproductive. I speak only for myself and my late partner. Both of us had very successful professional careers (one architect, one senior government manager), have always been extremely close to our families, both of which united in support for us, and were good citizens, good neighbors and good friends. I remain close to his wonderful family — including to his two children from an early marriage and our wonderful, successful granddaughter and to his former wife. Since individuals like Ms. Meyer only present negative images of us, I would also note with pride my late partner’s service in WW II, for which he was awarded the highest form of recognition (medals) three separate times for courage in battle, and for going back into battle, when he realized the other members of his unit were trapped by enemy fire, and rescuing a number of them on his own. Of course, because we also have individuals like Ms. Meyer, after that incredible record of service to our country, he came home and faced fifty years of derision, prejudice and discrimination — and unfortunately died at 74, just before our rights began to be recognized.

    Though opponents like Ms. Meyer still believe it is acceptable to tell lies about us, make false and hateful claims and insult us in every way their narrow minds permit, we will no longer endure the dishonesty quietly. In particular, we are no longer willing to allow those advocating bigotry to pretend they are doing so on behalf of the Christian religion. Christianity does not endorse or condone bigotry, and those who claim it does know that they are misrepresenting the religion with an intentionally dishonest interpretation of the one mention of homosexuality in the Bible. We will confront their claims that they are acting on religious beliefs. We will also remind them of the teachings of Jesus Christ which they do not seem to take seriously at all. He taught us to treat all others as we would be treated, to show love to all with whom we come into contact (even those who are different or with whom we disagree, and he warned us that we have no authority or ability to judge the lives of others and told us that those who do will be treated more harshly when they are judged. Ms. Meyer and too many like her seem to believe those rules no longer apply or do not apply to them. If they are wrong in their beliefs, then their actions will have to someday be explained. I have always believed that we were taught to treat others as we would be treated, then God made us all with differences — in race, ethnic origin, ability, sexual orientation, talent, language, etc. — to see if we would look past our differences to follow his golden rule or whether we would become consumed by the differences and cast aside the rule. If hat is indeed what he did, I wonder how Ms. Meyer and others will explain the choices they are making.
