Smithsonian Claims Obama Wasn’t the ONLY Gay President

(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Following a long tradition of reading past history via an LGBT lens, the Smithsonian Magazine speculated that American President James Buchanan might have been America’s first gay president, and not former President Barack Obama, as most believe.

Citing a letter written as an insult, the magazine suggested that Buchanan had some sort of romantic attachment to an Alabama man named William Rufus DeVane King.

According to the narrative, Buchanan’s lack of success with women, combined with King’s apparent lack of interest, signaled that the two friends likely engaged in some sort of homosexual affair.

The two friends lived together at one time, and exchanged various friendly letters with each other.

Though Smithsonian never outright claimed that Buchanan was gay, the article sought to explain why Americans are so desperate to transform the past into a more gay time.

“Centuries of repression of homosexuality in the United States has erased countless number of Americans from the story of LGBT history,” the article claimed.

“The dearth of clearly identifiable LGBT political leaders from the past, moreover, has yielded a necessary rethinking of the historical record and has inspired historians to ask important, searing questions,” causing Americans to interpret anyone who does not fit “into a normative pattern of heterosexual marriage” as “queer.”

The conclusion, the magazine noted, was reached by a “powerful force at work within historical scholarship: the search for a usable queer past.”

Despite the length of the article, it makes no mention of a more recent president who likely engaged in gay affairs: Barack Obama.

Recently, letters written by the former president were unveiled, revealing that he dreamed of having gay sex in letters to a former girlfriend.

In the wake of that shocking revelation, Larry Sinclair, one of Obama’s alleged gay lovers, interviewed with Tucker Carlson, detailing a sex- and cocaine-filled evening with Barack at a bar in Chicago in 1999.

The Obamas have not directly addressed the rumors.
