Another of Obama’s gay young men died mysteriously

Nearly 9 months ago, I wrote a post about the sudden and mysterious death of Alex Okrent (pic below), a 29-year-old campaign worker at Obama’s reelection campaign headquarters in downtown Chicago.

Alex Okrent

According to Lynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun-Times, July 13, 2012, Okrent was working in Obama for America’s paid media department that handled advertising for the POS’s re-election bid. Previously, Okrent had been a staffer for Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign and his 2004 race for an Illinois Senate seat. In other words, Okrent had worked for Obama for at least 8 years, since he was 20 years old.

On July 12, 2012, Okrent collapsed while working at the POS’s Chicago campaign headquarters. Chicago paramedics were called at 10:36 a.m. to the Obama headquarters in the Prudential Building. Okrent was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Interestingly, the Chicago Sun-Times article is closed to comments. An Editor’s Note says the following:

“Due to the tone and content of many of the comments associated with this story, commenting has been turned off. The Sun-Times encourages readers to make their voices heard, but commenting must maintain a respectful and constructive tone.”

Not only can readers not add comments, we also can’t read whatever comments that had been posted before the editor closed down the commenting function. See for yourself by going to the article.

I just discovered what probably prompted the Chicago Sun-Times to close the news article to comments. The following (colored brown) is from gay Chicago blogger Kevin Dujan’s “Is Obama Gay?,” on HillBuzz:

Alex Okrent

[ Alex Okrent died mysteriously in July of 2012 in the Obama Campaign Offices in Chicago’s Prudential Building.  Openly gay, he’d been affiliated with Barack Obama in one way or another since Okrent was in college. Obama kept him around, through all those years, on all those campaigns…until he suddenly turned up dead with an inconclusive autopsy.  And his death happened just before Obama was headed into a difficult re-election campaign where black support for Obama was wavering and the black community is notoriously anti-gay.  Could Alex Okrent have been eliminated because he was going to talk about a relationship with Barack Obama? There sure are a lot of gay men who turn up dead around the current President of the United States.  See also: Young, Donald ].

Donald Young

Donald Young

Donald Young was the openly-gay choir director of the church in Chicago of which Obama was a member for some 20 years — Rev. Jeremy Wright’s Trinity United Church of Christ black liberation theology. Young’s bullet-ridden body was found in his Chicago apartment on December 23, 2007, in what appeared to be an assassination-style slaying.

In an exclusive interview in July 2010 with The Globe, Young’s elderly mother Norma Jean Young said that persons trying to protect Obama murdered her son at the height of the Democratic presidential primary to protect Obama from embarrassing revelations about his homosexual relationship with her son. Obama’s homosexual relationship with Young was also confirmed by Larry Sinclair, who claims to have had two sex-cocaine trysts with the POS.

Larry Bland, Nate Spencerl to r: Larry Bland, unknown man, Nate Spencer

There were two other openly gay men in Wright’s church: Larry Bland and Nate Spencer. In late 2007, as Obama began his ascent to be the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee, in a span of 1½ months, all three young gay men “conveniently” died:

  • Bland was murdered execution-style on November 17, 2007;
  • Young was murdered execution-style on December 23, 2007;
  • Spencer reportedly died of septicemia, pneumonia, and HIV on December 26, 2007. (Death certificates of Bland and Young, HERE.)

To my knowledge, the murders of Bland and Young remain unsolved.

Investigative journalist Wayne Madsen claims that Rev. Wright, who was pastor of the Trinity United Church of Christ (TUCC) on Chicago’s south side for 20 years, ran what was essentially a matchmaking service for gay married black professional members of the church, particularly those with children. The matchmaking club was called the “Down Low Club” or DLC.

Obama has a deadly appeal

Remember 70-year-old Ann Harris, that restaurant owner in Akron, Ohio, and a big fan of Obama’s, who dropped dead from a heart attack shortly after the POS stopped in unannounced for breakfast?

Now another Obama fan has dropped dead — a 29-year-old campaign worker at the POS’s downtown Chicago campaign headquarters.

Alex Okrent

Lynn Sweet reports for the Chicago Sun-Times, July 13, 2012, that Alex Okrent worked in Obama for America’s paid media department, which handles advertising for Obama’s re-election bid. Okrent was also a staffer for Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign and worked on his 2004 race for an Illinois Senate seat.

Yesterday, Okrent collapsed while working at the POS’s Chicago campaign headquarters. After he collapsed, Chicago paramedics were called at 10:36 a.m. to the Obama headquarters in the Prudential Building where he was given emergency treatment. He was then taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Interestingly, the Chicago Sun-Times article is now closed to comments. An Editor’s Note says the following:

“Due to the tone and content of many of the comments associated with this story, commenting has been turned off. The Sun-Times encourages readers to make their voices heard, but commenting must maintain a respectful and constructive tone.”

Meanwhile, Obama also worked his deadly appeal on supporters during a rally in downtown Roanoke, Virginia.

Daniel Halper reports for The Weekly Standard, July 13, 2012, that “more than 20 people fainted during the president’s speech” Friday evening in Roanoke.

According to the press pool report:

“TV viewers may have heard POTUS pointed out a couple of faintings during the rally in downtown Roanoke. In fact, fire officials say more than 20 people fell out during the course of the speech. There were waves of exclamation as one person after another swooned.

Paramedics treated 21 people on the scene and took one to the hospital, according to the Roanoke fire department.

It was warm out and the crowd of 3,000-plus was packed tightly into the 4-block area, the deputy fire marshal said by way of explanation. Volunteers passed around cups of water but some people didn’t take them, he said.”

So I went looking for what the temperature was in Roanoke, Virginia, on the evening of July 13, 2012.

This is what Kevin Myatt’s Weather Journal on roanoke.com (the online Roanoke Times) says:

UPDATE 9:20 AM, 7/13: Unseasonably cool, damp mid-July period peaks today in Southwest Virginia

UPDATE 9:20 Am, 7/13: Most of the rain has stayed along and west of the Interstate 77 corridor through the night and morning, but a few showers to the east will move north through the Roanoke and New River valleys this morning. (Latest radar linked here.) Drizzly, damp weather has also developed along parts of the Blue Ridge as easterly winds bank some moisture against the higher terrain. That “wedge” effect is likely to keep cloudiness overhead and temperatures below normal today in much of our region, with highs no higher than 80 most places.

So the weather in Roanoke on the evening of July 13 was “unseasonably cool, damp”, and yet 20 people fainted during that POS’s speech!

Hmm…..
