Gaystapo (gay + Gestapo)

Nazi Germany’s Gestapo was its official secret police; the term “Gestapo” has later been used to describe forceful, authoritarian tactics. “Gaystapo” (gay + Gestapo) has been cited in print since at least 1987 and has been used to describe some gay rights activists. Critics of the “Gaystapo” claim that it’s mainly an anti-Christian movement and that disagreements on gay rights are not allowed.


Wikipedia: Gestapo
The Gestapo (German pronunciation: [ɡeˈstaːpo, ɡəˈʃtaːpo] ( listen); abbreviation of Geheime Staatspolizei, “Secret State Police") was the official secret police of Nazi Germany and German-occupied Europe. Hermann Göring formed the unit in 1933. Beginning on 20 April 1934, it was under the administration of SS national leader, Heinrich Himmler who in 1936 was appointed Chief of German Police (Chef der Deutschen Polizei) by Hitler. In 1936, Himmler made it a suboffice of the Sicherheitspolizei (SiPo) ("Security Police"). Then from 27 September 1939 forward, it was administered by the Reichssicherheitshauptamt (RSHA) ("Reich Main Security Office") and was considered a sister organization of the Sicherheitsdienst (SD) ("Security Service"). According to historian Rupert Butler, “From its creation in 1933 until its death in May 1945, anyone living in Nazi controlled territory lived in fear of a visit from the Gestapo...”.

In a courageous, and vigorous article in The Times of 28 December 1987, ironically headed ‘Bring on the Gaystapo’, Bernard Levin wrote, “This country seems to be in the grip of a galloping frenzy of hate, where homosexuals are concerned, that will soon, if not checked, lead to something like a pogrom.”

HillBuzz (2013?)
The Gaystapo
One of the Left’s most effective tools is the goon squad of gay party-line enforcers called “The Gaystapo”, a term coined here on HillBuzz.org in 2011.

Gays are used by the Left most often to attack, malign, and persecute Christians…as “enemies of the gay community”.  The desired impact of this is to depict gays as perpetual victims of bullying by Christians so that other members of the public turn their backs on Christianity in support of these alleged-victims…when, in reality, it’s the gays who are attacking Christians and all of their “righteous indignation” is cover for the fact that gays are just employed as goon squads for the Left in this manner.
