In a message on Twitter, Mr. D'souza wrote, "Hitler was NOT anti-gay. He refused to purge gay Brownshirts from Nazi ranks saying he had no problem as long as they were good fighters."
History and reality happens to disagree with Mr. D'Souza. According to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, the Third Reich imprisoned around 100,000 homosexuals and around 15,000 homosexuals were murdered.
Mr. D'souza, apart from apparently being an apologist for Adolf Hitler, is also a felon after he pled guilty to making $20,000 in illegal contributions to Republican Senate candidate Wendy Long in 2012. Mr. D'souza wired some of the illegal payments through his mistress at the time.
