Fredrick the Great, gay bully

Not only does this site accuse the man who advanced the cause of Civil Liberties greatly as a warmonger (ignoring how many different countries wefe at wae at the time), he claims he was racist against slavs.
He is said to have caused the death of his younger brother, Prince Augustus William, by blaming him so harshly for losing a battle in the Seven Years’ War. When members of his court or family wanted to marry, he would get angry and hostile to them in an abnormal way. But then he wasn’t normal! Some of them hid their marriages from him for a long time, fearing recrimination. When one of his faithful officers, Carl Guichard, wanted to get married, it led to a permanent breach between him and Frederick who simply could not tolerate normal heterosexual behaviour.
Frederick was one of the most aggressive war-mongers in world history. In his determination to expand his realm at all costs and his belief that Prussians were superior to Slavs, he was the forerunner of Adolf Hitler, who greatly revered him.
Notice how these claims aren't sourced.

Whats to talk about? He was an expansionist monarch with enlightenment ideals who very likely was gay. Nazis tried to appropriate his legacy as they did all former great german leaders.

What is perceived as real becomes real in its consequences.

Not that there's anything wrong with being gay.
The job of a skeptic is to investigate the unexplained; not to explain the uninvestigated.
