#637: Kevin DuJan

Kevin DuJan is a self-declared Christian conservative gay man, blogger ( and conspiracy theorist (he has claimed that “leftist gays are poisoning his drinks in Chicago bars” and that employees of Sidetrack have been ordered to slit his throat if they see him). He initially rose to fame spearheading a campaign to stuff the ballot box so Bristol Palin would win on “Dancing With the Stars” (by cheating, in fact). His primary argumentative tactic is idle speculation, a technique he has honed to the level of incoherence. For instance, DuJan is behind the idea (endorsed by e.g. Dean Chambers) that during the night of the Benghazi attack Obama was away doing coke and having gay sex: “If you’ve ever known anyone who is a drug addict, you’d see it’s obvious that Barack Obama was high on cocaine the night of Benghazi;” says DuJan, since “it is the only logical explanation for his disappearance and the White House’s refusal to comment on what he was doing at the time” (our emphasis). More precisely, Obama was out having sex with Reggie Love in Las Vegas. DuJan’s source? His “good friend” Justine in California suggested it, and she “was an actress and model in Los Angeles back in the late-1970s and ran in the same circles as friends of closeted gay men like Rock Hudson.” Quite damning. And, to clinch the matter, the White House has not been forthcoming about Obama’s location during the “missing ours”, a premise from which DuJan concludes that “we must assume I’m correct and the President of the United States was incapacitated from heavy narcotics use.” Among those who have relied DuJan’s overwhelming evidence is Jerome Corsi.

DuJan has also argued, though the relevance isn’t quite clear, that ambassador Stevens was himself gay  based on speculation and the fact that some male people also expressed condolences and sadness over his death. Obama’s previous gay partner, by the way, was Rahm Emanuel, one of the gayest gays in Washington (a piece of investigative journalism that made DuJan a darling at Free Republic and the WND).

DuJan has also claimed that the exit polls during the 2012 election was merely a government ploy to scare Romney voters from voting (“[f]reak you out and make you so crippling with frost-fingered fear that you can’t function on Tuesday and won’t be able to go out and vote or help other Romney voters vote”), which is not how human psychology works. Romney would win anyways, however, and before the election DuJan waxed lyrical about how it was “going to be marvelous seeing them all realize Nate Silver was lying to them and that there is in actuality a 0% of Obama being reelected. And there always has been, ever since Obamacare passed the House on March 21st, 2010.” Then there is this schema showing how it would be impossible for Obama to get reelected.

DuJan seems to have ended up in some trouble after his June 2013 accusation against a Chicago public school teacher, whom DuJan claimed is a racist gay porn actor and male stripper, citing evidence almost as convincing as his evidence for Obama’s cocaine habit.

Diagnosis: A fine example of how much evidence some people need to claim that the shit they already want to believe is supported by the facts. DuJan’s general influence appear to be relatively negligible, however, and the people who cite him (Corsi, Chambers, Free Republic) aren’t known to care much about evidence anyways and the evidence DuJan provides them thus doesn’t make much difference.


  1. Well, if Justine in California, who actually used to know some gay people, says this is what the president was doing, then that's good enough for me.

    I have a friend in California who used to run in the same circles as some straight people, and he thinks that he knows what DuJan was doing on the night DOMA was overturned, and frankly, it's the only logical explanation.

  2. Kevin has abandoned his bizarre blog and is now reduced to making weird YouTube Videos.

    His LinkedIn account says he's got a Master's Degree from Northwestern University, if that's to be believed.

    So sad.
