New Nixon audio: “Aristotle was a homo… Roman emperors, fags”

This is brilliant. They’ve found new audio of then-President Richard Nixon complaining about a TV show he stumbled upon that was glorifying homosexuality: “All in the Family.”

Richard-Nixon

It’s hard to imagine Nixon wasn’t familiar with All in the Family.  The show was centered around the father of the family, Archie, who was a lovable bigot, and the show basically lampooned Archie’s biases in order to show how absurd they really were.

What’s particularly fascinating is the obsequious conversation coming from Nixon’s lieutenants. It reminds me of my time working in the US Senate.  A tad too much sucking up all around.

(H/t Steve Rothaus, though the transcript is mine.)

Nixon: CBS came on with a movie. They had two magnificent handsome guys, and a stupid old fellow in it. They were glorifying homosexuality!

Ehrlichman: Was that a panel, sir?

Nixon: Hell no, it was a movie!

Haldeman: No, that’s a regular show, it’s on every week. And usually it’s just set in the guy’s home. It’s usually just that guy, who’s a hardhat.

Nixon: That’s right, he’s a hard hat.

Ehrlichman: And he always just looks like a slob.

Nixon: Looks like Jackie Gleason.

Haldeman: And then he has this hippie son-in-law. And, uh, usually the general trend of it is to downgrade him, and upgrade…

Nixon: Upgrade the hippie son-in-law.

Haldeman: Make the square hardhat to be bad.

Ehrlichman: What’s it called, I’ve never seen it.

Nixon: Archie is the guy’s name.

Ehrlichman: Now that’s real family entertainment, isn’t it?

Nixon: The point that I make is that goddamit, I do not think that you glorify, on public television, homosexuality!  You ever see what happened, you know what happened to the Greeks? Homosexuality destroyed them. Aristotle was a homo, we all know that. So was Socrates.

Ehrlichman: But he never had the influence that television has.

Nixon: The last six Roman emperors were fags. You see, homosexuality, immorality in general, these are the enemies of strong societies. That’s why the communists and the left-wingers are pushing it. They’re trying to destroy us.

“Magnificent handsome guys”?  What straight guy says that?

    That’s funny I’m a working class guy and most of the working class guy I know are very pro worker ( laws and protections). Ironicly they are hate the union ( not the philosophical idea of a union, but the real unions. Workers are not your friends not because they like republican labor policy, but because your face is liberal feminist and queer.

  • dgh

    Actually, it’s interesting that this “discussion” didn’t “lead to” gays; it’s a news item specifically and only about newly released documentation of Richard Nixon’s ludicrous homosexual panic. In other words, it started and ended with gays: clearly headlined and easily avoided if you’re not interested in their business – no danger at all of getting halfway into it and suddenly realizing you’ve been surrounded by gays again. Also, if by “Ziegried Girl” you mean “Ziegfeld Girl”, I don’t think the President would make it through the audition; I believe Florenz Ziegfeld’s chorus girls were all white. This was because of racism, another annoying thing people who can spell will keep talking about whether or not you’re interested.

  • redwood05090

    It is interesting to observe how any discussion leads to some items about Gays, homosexuals and their rightful place as if this is what binds the entire country together. I keep getting emails from defenders of the Gay cause as if I was a Satanic pervert chasing Gays in every forum. The case is simpler, I am not that interested in their business and do not believe that anybody who is not gay cares, they seem to assume that they are so special to the point where 7 years old kids have to learn about their personal issues. I never saw straight folks making a parade claiming that they are proud because they are straight. Enough with this Gay musical. They got one of their own in the Oval Ooffice, a true Ziegried Girl, if anyone saw the latest photos of this pervert playing golf on his one of how many recent vacations? What more do these freaks want?

  • Tom Linder

    Does anyone know which episode of All in the Family Nixon was referring to? I’ve seen all of them, but it’s been a while. There was a then-famous drag queen on a couple (who saved Archie’s life or vice versa) of episodes, but I don’t remember an episode with two magnificent handsome guys who glorified homosexuality. I’m just curious to know what guys he thought were handsome, and how they were glorifying homosexuality.

  • Celsa Mix

    So what if Aristotle was a homo? Unlike Mr. Nixon, Aristotle contributed so much in the modern civilization. And he really got the nerve to talk about how immorality destroys societies.

    Wow, a republican being a homophobic ass. Who would of thought this was even remotely possible! :O

  • http://www.newmillgay.com/ The_Fixer

    Yeah, that’s another excellent point.

    The fear of being fired from a Federal civil service job was a real one. Frank Kameny got fired from his astronomer position with the Map Service (later folded into NASA) for being gay. Which likely led him to organize those protests with the well-dressed people that you mention.

    Of course there was Hollywood, too. Leading men in movies and musicians did anything to remain closeted for fear of not being able to work again. Rock Hudson was a “Man’s Man” and Liberace…. was the beneficiary of denial (both his and that of his largely female audience).

  • tbl92666

    Aristotle literally wrote the book on ethics; one can see why Nixon wouldn’t have been a fan.

  • emjayay

    Yes, that’s the mindset and view of the world of people like Richard Nixon that I was referring to above. Add in with people like Roy Cohn maybe a really desperate need to be accepted by what he grew up with as being the only possible society, or at least the only one he could picture himself in and was extremely successful in, being a really smart and completely unprincipled lawyer.

    And to a degree, in a world where like in the early 50′s you could be fired from a federal civil service job for being gay (about the first thing early gay protests were about for which they dressed in business suits and for women dresses and white gloves), it was the world they knew. The world at least in the West was changing but their worldview/mindset didn’t change with it.

  • http://www.newmillgay.com/ The_Fixer

    Yeah, it can snap the brain to try figuring that out. But I came up with a possible line of reasoning, as warped as it may be.

    You see, in their minds, all true homosexuals were “pansies” or “dandies” who were what people now refer to as effeminate males. Buys like Cohn (and J. Edgar Hoover, in spite of his dress wearing) did not think of themselves as “one of them”. All real homosexuals were florists, hairdressers and such. Roy was a lawyer who liked to have sex with men, and only straight men were lawyers, heads of the FBI, etc. Ridiculous thinking, but that’s what I surmise that they thought.

    Which overlooks the fact that if you’re playing with another man’s peen, you’re likely gay or bisexual. Completely straight men really don’t do that.

    Or so I’m told.

  • Bill_Perdue

    Any attempt to underrate the fact that Obama, the Bushes, the Clintons (especially the Clintons), Carter and Reagan have not destroyed the standard of living of working people, busted unions and the Bill of Rights and created an era of permanent war is dead wrong.

    Democrat politicians are the enemy and so are Republicans.

  • Ninong

    McCarthy knew that Roy Cohn “had sex with men” but that didn’t mean he was a homosexual. Yes, Cohn had sex with men but he wasn’t a homosexual. Try to figure that one out. Cohn went to his grave denying that he was actually gay. He just liked to have sex with men. He died of AIDS in 1986. He was “not-gay” to the end.

  • Kenster999

    Nixon, early 1970′s: “You see, homosexuality, immorality in general, these are the enemies of strong societies. That’s why the communists and the left-wingers are pushing it. They’re trying to destroy us.”

    Vladimir Putin, early 2010′s: “You see, homosexuality, immorality in general, these are the enemies of strong societies. That’s why the West is pushing it. They’re trying to destroy us.”

  • BigGuy

    He was more a friend of working people and unions than any President since Truman. He did an awful lot of grunt work growing up. OSHA came about because of him. The Health Plan he proposed was a single payer plan that was well to the left of anything that’s been proposed since. Ted Kennedy opposed that healthcare plan and it died in the Senate.

    Nixon was uncomfortable with everybody, but was most uncomfortable with the enormously wealthy Republican Establishment and the Kennedys.

    The way he moved the country to the Right was with his judicial appointments. His domestic and fiscal policies were far more liberal than anything put through by Carter, Clinton, or Obama.

  • emjayay

    And Southerners, wingnuts, rubes, and reactionaries (or whatever you want to call them) are still at war with these very same ideas today.

    On another level of people and politics, I’ve always said that Cheney and Alito and others like that are grown up versions of Young Republicans in suits on campuses in that period walking by hippies sprawling on the lawn or protesting the war, and are still fighting the same battles.

  • emjayay

    Richard Nixon’s presidency ended 39 years ago. There has been a bit of political and social and economic change over the decades. Besides the passage of time, one person’s right-left-center position cannot be characterized or compared to anyone back then in a single word because of all the areas and specifics it covers.

    Any blanket assertions comparing individuals from four decades ago to individuals today are meaningless.

  • Ninong

    I used to know all of the lyrics to all of the songs from “Hair” by heart because that was one of the very first records I bought in 4-channel quadraphonic sound to go with my new Bose 4-speaker quad system. That was around 1968 or 1969. To get the best effect, you needed a room where you could place the speakers in the four corners of the room facing inwards toward the center of the room. Then you had to arrange the seating so that you would be at least a few feet away from what were the two rear speakers.

    The effect was amazing at the time and “Hair” was the best recording I ever found for displaying quad sound. In some of the songs they must have placed the chorus in a circle with the mics in the middle pointing towards the singers because the sound actually rotated around your room. They did that just once or twice on the recording because too much of that would have driven you nuts, but whenever there was any spoken dialogue, the voice of the person answering would come from a different speaker.

    Anyway, in the late ’60′s, I knew every word to every song of “Hair.” I always played that record at parties for my friends, most of whom were straight and married at the time. There is no way I would have playing anything with lyrics like that in the 1950′s. Where I lived, things started to change a lot in the early ’60′s and then it accelerated after the hippie movement with the 1967 Summer of Love. That spread out from San Francisco to other cities, even certain Deep South cities.

  • emjayay

    “Magnificent handsome guys”? What straight guy says that?

    In the world of Richard Nixon, being gay was only for perverts, not people like him and anyone he would know. So you could express objective opinions about stuff like that without any implication of anything that would be thought of today. It’s an indication of how different that world was just 40 years ago.

    Men in other cultures could or can do things that would seem really gay to us in the West for similar reasons. Like Russian soldiers years ago or guys in the Middle East seen holding hands.

  • emjayay

    Not to mention other lyrics that would stand certain Virginia and other politician’s hair on end all these years later:

    Sodomy

    (spoken)

    I swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help
    me god.

    In the name of the father, the son, and the holy ghost.
    Amen.

    (sung)

    Sodomy
    Fellatio
    Cunnilingus
    Pederasty

    Father, why
    do these words sound so nasty?

    Masturbation
    Can be fun
    Join the
    holy orgy
    Kama Sutra
    Everyone!

  • emjayay

    Richard Nixon’s presidency ended 39 years ago. Making blanket assertions about who was to the the left or right of who from four decades ago is meaningless. Besides the passage of time over the decades, left or right or whatever encompasses social, economic, and political issues.

    There’s a whole herd of those sorts in the House. You know, the body at the top of the Legislative branch of the federal government representing the best of the American people.

    Lyrics from the musical Hair – My Conviction

    (spoken monologue)

    You know kids, I wish every mother
    and father in this theater would go home
    tonight and make a speech to their
    teenagers and say kids, be free, no guilt,
    be whatever you are,
    do whatever you want to do, just so long as you don’t
    hurt anybody.
    Right? Right!

    (This sums up the late sixties counterculture message and completely at odds with the overwhelming post WWII sentiments of the US culture.)

    (And then, sung)

    I would just like to say that it is my
    conviction
    That longer hair and other flamboyant affectations
    Of
    appearance are nothing more
    Than the male’s emergence from his drab
    camoflage
    Into the gaudy plumage
    Which is the birthright of his
    sex

    There is a peculiar notion that elegant plumage
    And fine feathers are not
    proper for the man
    When ac—tually
    That is the way things are
    In most
    species

  • emjayay

    Nixon had that old time Rotary Club small town 1950′s idea of Communism from the very beginning of his career. Quite a simple, narrow minded paranoiac in some ways and intelligent in others.

    There is nothing overrated about All in the Family. It was groundbreaking in terms of style and writing and acting and subject matter for a sitcom.

  • http://www.newmillgay.com/ The_Fixer

    Well, there was a tiny bit of truth to their paranoia about homosexuality being pushed by the Commies.

    Harry Hay, founder of the Mattachine Society was a member of the Communist Party. In fact, he later resigned from the organization that he co-founded. Others in the organization were mindful of the growing influence of Senator Joe Mc Carthy, and it was agreed that he should leave for fear of Senator Joe’s attention setting back the movement.

    I’m sure that Nixon and his gang remembered Harry Hay and associated the homophile movement with Communism.

  • vergil arma

    you obviously live in an anti-gay sewer.

  • Bill_Perdue

    Nixon was no friend of working people. He only seems better than our current crop of rightwing union busters because the AFL-CIO was much larger then and carried far more weight. Democrats and Republicans paid attention to them, now both are anti-union, anti-worker parties.

    Nixon’s domestic policies were meant to move the country to the right. One of the results of the Democrat/Republican invasion and occupation of Vietnam was a very high inflation rate that smoldered through the economy tapering off in first Clinton administration.

    Nixon’s ‘solution’ was to impose wage and price controls which, as they always do, were enforced on wages and ignored on prices and interest rates. What Carter, Reagan, Clinton, the Bushes and Obama did was to move the country further right and of those Clinton was the worst until Obama. His deregulation policies directly caused and created the current – Clinton – Depression.

    One piece of irony was the night of the Saturday Night Massacre (20 October 1973). Minutes before the announcement that Robert Bork had fired Archibald Cox after both Nixon’s fourth Attorney General Elliot Richardson and Deputy Attorney General William Ruckelshaus has refused to fire Cox, “All in the Family” had an episode where Mike and Gloria called Nixon “King Richard”. “He acts like one”, Gloria tells Archie after he tries to defend “Richard E Nixon”.
    The “hard hat” comment was well known in the firm “Joe” and the riot the hard hats had in 1970 defending Nixon against the so-called hippies.

    Ike’s comment is the essence of passive-aggressiveness. He used Nixon all the time to do his dirty work and to lobby the House and Senate.

  • BigGuy

    Nixon had all the prejudices of someone raised in an all White Protestant small town. He expressed those prejudices privately. He swore a lot in private, but NEVER publicly.

    He did not act on his prejudices. He hired Jews. He supported integration. He supported the Sullivan Plan (affirmative action). He disciplined himself NOT TO ACT on his prejudices. That’s not easy. Very few people manage to do that.

    Nixon was the most in touch with the privations of the Poor and treated working people with great respect. His domestic polices were far to the left of anything Carter or Clinton proposed or accomplished.

    Having grown up in the ’40′s and ’50′s, I can guarantee you that the ’60′s were liberating and tolerant compared to the previous two decades. In fact, the ’60′s really did start a sexual revolution in this country on all fronts.

  • CarlosMu

    That was a strange relationship, wasn’t it? I think Nixon was probably mostly straight but with more than a little same-sex attraction, which he fought against and which could explain his constant homophobic remarks in private. He wanted to prove that he was 100% not-gay.

    Then there was the fact that Bebe was wealthy and had certain very wealthy friends who were more than willing to make “contributions” under the table if they thought it could benefit them in some way.

    When Bebe flew on Air Force One, he had his own blue U.S. Navy flight jacket, Presidential seal and everything, with his name embroidered on it. That really pissed off Henry Kissinger, who thought it was unseemly.

  • AnitaMann

    In fairness to Dick, these views were probably very common among men of his generation, regardless of political persuasion. Now, why they were sitting around the oval office discussing it, and TV sitcoms when, you know, they had a country to run… that’s pretty stunning.

    It’s because the ideals expressed by the Republicans appeal to stupid people. Just look at Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin, for example.
