Do you remember the nazis going after John and Dan in the cult-movie “The Blues Brothers” ? I am sure you do. The duo of nazi leaders, after being charged by the Brothers with their car, spend the rest of the movie trying to get revenge, but eventually die in a surreal car accident (their car is seen falling down over Chicago after they fall off a highway bridge). In their last moments of life the deputy reveals the boss how he’s always loved him (right, the outing scene).
How can one not think back at that scene today, after hearing the outing of Stefan Petzner, the second-in-command of the BZOE ? Petzner and Joerg Heider (together in the picture below) had a secret relationship, and Heider is now dead in a car accident. John Landis would be laughing in his grave, were he dead.
It is all very amusing, although I did not cheer at the car accident in which Heider lost his life, as I do not laugh at the fact that the filo-nazi Austrian had gay inclinations. Anyway, I am happy to see that homosexuality does not know ideological barriers, which is one of the reasons why it is finally starting to be accepted in today’s society.
