Above we see England’s King Henry VIII with Charles Brandon, in a slightly fictionalised version of Henry’s life.
Anne Boleyn said publicly that the king was “not able to satisfy a woman, having neither the skill nor the virility.”
Like Donald Trump’s close friend Roy Cohn, Henry VIII has been accused of being a homosexual homophobe.
King Mwanga of Buganda (Uganda) (1868- 1903): liked both boys and girls. King Mwanga kept a ‘harem’ of nearly 100 of them of them. He hated the missionaries since they were attempting to covert his young men. The King went into a fit of rage when one of his favorite young men converted. His Majesty, in his rage, “burned at the stake over two dozen of his former lovers (above) who later would be known as the Martyrs of Buganda.”
The Tudors did not have a word for ‘homosexual’.
So, the Tudor homophobes were opposed to ‘sodomy’ rather than ‘same sex relationships’.
When King Henry VIII met King Francis I of France, “they were both dressed in gold and silver cloth …
“While still on horseback, they embraced and kissed each other…
“Francis gave Henry a beautiful bracelet, and then, laughing and joking like a schoolboy, he insisted on helping Henry to dress.
“He warmed his shirt, helped him to tie and button his clothes, and then, mounting on his horse, rode gayly home.”
King Charles I of Wurttemburg (1823-1891): created a problem for Chancellor Otto Von Bismark. Charles I fell in love with three young American men – Richard Mason Jackson, Charles Woodcock and Donald Hendry. Bismarck banished the young men.
In 1533 Henry VIII had a law passed called the Buggery Act which prosecuted acts of sodomy.
This law was a tool to attack Catholic monks, so that their monastic lands could be seized.
When Mary Tudor succeeded the throne of England in 1553, she repealed all the laws against buggery (sodomy).
Elizabeth Tudor then brought back all the laws against buggery.
The top Nazis were gay and homophobic.
“The larger campaign of assassinations across Germany was orchestrated by Reinhard Heydrich, also a well-known homosexual.
King James I was the typical monarch and had various young lads as male lovers.These included:Esmé Stuart, Earl of LennoxGeorge Gordon, sixth Earl of HuntleyAlexander Lindsay, Lord SpynieFrancis Stewart Hepburn, Earl of BothwellGeorge Villiers, Duke of Buckingham
James Hay, 1st Earl of Carlisle
Robert Carr, Earl of Somerset
“Carr was a handsome Scots lad who came to England in 1603 to run beside the royal coach as a page-boy…
“Carr was appointed Gentleman of the Bedchamber.”
“Every day some aspiring Lord – notably Sir William Manson – would hire a troup of handsome young ragamuffin boys, scrub their faces clean with curdled milk, curl their hair, powder them and perfume them, dress them in silk and lace, and lead them in dainty procession around the throne in order to seduce the King’s favour.”
Donald Trump’s mentor was Roy Cohn (above left, with Trump right).
Roy Cohn was gay.
He openly frequented gay bars. (Cohn, Roy )
Cohn targeted people for alleged homosexual tendencies.
Many of those targeted lost jobs, families, and homes.
