Nazi concentration camp badges
Yes we are comparing how ex-sex offenders today are being treated as others were treated during Adolph Hitlers' reign!
We are not saying ex-sex offenders are homosexuals, and we are not comparing ex-sex offenders to how the Jews were tortured, we are comparing how they were labeled and seen as outcasts, forced to wear a label that invites vigilantism.

The pink triangle (German: Rosa Winkel) was one of the Nazi concentration camp badges, used by the Nazis to identify male prisoners in concentration camps who were sent there because of their homosexuality. Every prisoner had to wear a triangle on his or her jacket, the color of which was to categorize him or her according "to his kind." Jews had to wear the yellow badge, and "anti-social individuals" (which included vagrants, "work shy" individuals and often, but not exclusively, lesbians), the black triangle. The black triangle as a symbol of lesbian or feminist solidarity, a counterpart to the gay pink triangle, probably originated from the Nazi "asocial" black triangle.
The inverted pink triangle has become an international symbol of gay pride and the gay rights movement, and is second in popularity only to the rainbow flag.
The prisoners with a pink triangle identified themselves as gay (sometimes they were married to women, and engaged in very few, if any, homosexual acts). Not everyone convicted under Paragraph 175 was sent to a concentration camp; in fact, most were sent to ordinary jails. Most gay men who suffered and died in Nazi concentration camps actually wore the yellow star (because they were both Gay and Jewish).
While the number of homosexuals in concentration camps is hard to estimate, Richard Plant gives a rough estimate of the number of men convicted for homosexuality "between 1933 to 1944 at between 50,000 and 63,000."
After the camps were liberated at the end of the Second World War, many of the pink triangle prisoners were often simply re-imprisoned by the Allied-instated Federal Republic of Germany. An openly gay man named Heinz Dörmer, for instance, served 20 years in total both in a Nazi concentration camp and then in the jails of the new Republic. In fact, the Nazi amendments to Paragraph 175, which turned homosexuality from a minor offense into a felony, remained intact after the war for a further 24 years. While suits seeking monetary compensation have failed, in 2002 the German government released an official apology to the gay community.
Today, fewer than ten of those imprisoned for homosexuality are known to be still living. In 2000, the documentary film Paragraph 175 recorded some of their testimonies.
The pink triangle is the basis of the design of the Homomonument in Amsterdam and the Gay and Lesbian Holocaust Memorial in Sydney.
Internment Camps, farms, prisons, why should we have to stop there! We have taken the first courageous steps and need to keep this ball rolling before those we wish to intern wise up and form a resistance and before the courts and world realize their complicity in allowing us this opportunity. We have a great "plan" already laid out for us to follow. Long before Hitler killed the first Jew in Nazi Germany, he paved the way for the wholesale disenfranchisement of human beings by — you guessed it — attacking the rights of sex offenders. From 1933 through 1936, a series of amendments were passed to Paragraphs 173 through 188 of the German Penal Law specifically targeting homosexuals and others determined to be “sexual deviants.”
The sex offender laws created under the Nazi Third Reich have been the model for “Megan’s Law” and many of the other laws being passed throughout the United States. They, The Nazi’s, established the first sex offender registry, required sex offenders to register their whereabouts and to wear pink triangles, and established draconian punishments for sex crimes that included long prison terms, loss of civil rights, confinement in concentration camps, and the death penalty. We have now most all of these laws in place. All of these laws were justified by the Nazi’s in the same way that our present-day politicians justify Megan’s Law: to protect the children from sexual predators.
Of course, targeting sex offenders is just a way for us to establish the precedent we need for the wholesale deprivation of human and civil rights in preparation for us to act against all the people we want out of our lives and communities such as all criminals, illegal’s, and anyone we deem as unworthy to share our Great American Way of Life.
It’s doubtful that the America Public, in general, would have acquiesced to our rounding up all those we have deemed undesirable and so forth, and sending them off to whatever had we not first establish a precedent that some people are subhuman and unworthy of human rights such as sex offenders are now — and so we start with the most universally despised group we could find and use those laws to move on to others.
Anyone who thinks that this couldn’t happen and work this time is delusional. The simple fact is that history shows that we can single out one group for deprivation of civil rights thus weakening those rights for everyone else we want to also deem as undesirable. So come on people we have an opportunity here and get behind these Nazi modeled reforms so we can cleanup our communities and protect our children, and of course it goes to say, just as long as it is not ONE OF US.
