Republican Richard Nixon on Homosexuality (1971)

The whole Nixon performance here is bigoted, but at around the 6:28 mark in the above clip he speaks in an especially noxious way, talking admirably of what “strong societies”, such as the Soviet Union, do with homosexuals (presumably killing or imprisoning them).

All in all, an ick fest. I wonder how many far-right conservatives, like Rush Limbaugh, still approve of this way of talking about homosexuals.
