"Do you know what happened to the Romes? Romans?" Richard Nixon mused one day. "The last six Roman emperors were fags. The last six. Nero had a public wedding to a boy. Yeah... You know that. You know what happened to the Popes? It's all right that, po-po-popes were laying the nuns, that's been going on for years, centuries, but, when the popes, when the Catholic Church went to hell, in, I don't know, three or four centuries ago, it was homosexual. And finally it had to be cleaned out. Now, that's what's happened to Britain, it happened earlier to France. And let's look at the strong societies. The Russians. God damn it, they root them out, they don't let them around at all. You know what I mean? I don't know what they do with them."
["You know what happened to the Greeks?" Nixon remarked on another occasion. "Homosexuality destroyed them. Sure, Aristotle was a homo, we all know that, so was Socrates..." Nixon also once remarked that he "couldn't shake hands with anybody" from "faggy" San Francisco.]
