“… you will be facing a finality beyond your comprehension, and you will not be counting days, or months, or years, but milleniums in a place with no doors.” – Joe Black in “Meet Joe Black”
In my opinion, the Donald Young lie is the most insidious of the mountains of lies Larry Sinclair has told in his feigned saga. I have no doubt that somewhere, somehow, Sinclair will have to answer to his atrocities, especially that of his Donald Young lie. He will have to answer to calling Madelyn Dunham to question her about Obama while on her deathbed, just to gain favor with his waning supporters. He will have to answer for targeting the two Obama daughters in order to get “attention”. Following is my take on Sinclairs lies about Donald Young, the choirmaster at TUCC who was murdered in December, 2007.
The Dog That Didn’t Bark: The Donald Young Lie
Now, one might ask, how does this Sherlockian logic apply to Larry Sinclair and his Donald Young invective?
Larry made a video that he uploaded to You Tube on January 8, 2008. In that video he claimed to have had a sexual and drug encounter with then State Senator Barack Obama in November 1999.
Larry has since removed the video, but You Tube, as we all know is a venue where a video that allegedly had over a million hits becomes viral. Videos are copied so that although the original might have been deleted by the author, many copies remain. This is one such copy which is NOT doctored or altered in any way.
The video claimed that the events took place between November 3rd and November 8th 1999. Keep in mind that then State Senator Obama was engaged in a very high profile and heated race with Bobby Rush to win the Democratic Congressional Primary. To the reasonable mind, one could say that it would have been political suicide for a politician to openly engage in the activities that Larry claims Obama engaged in.
The most outstanding thing about Larry’s initial You Tube video has turned out to be OUR version of “The Dog That Didn’t Bark”. There was no mention of the murdered Trinity United Church of Christ choir director, Donald Young.
In fact Donald Young did not come up in any of Larry’s initial radio appearances either. Keep in mind that Larry’s video appeared on the internet on January 8th, 2008. The very first mention of Donald Young came on a Jeff Rense show on March 10th, 2008 in which Larry announced a “bombshell” on the air. That’s an entire two months from the time the You Tube video appeared. That metaphorical dog was awfully quite for two months regarding Donald Young.
“They’ve even posted something on the web to where it comes, if you Google my name, stating hey, you know Sinclair is going to be founded murdered and then they’re going to try and blame that on Obama too.”
Cao, the host of the radio show told Larry that murder was not being a stretch of the imagination there is the story of the murdered gay choir director at Obama’s church.
About a month after the Cao interview, Larry started throwing weather balloons to his supporters about Donald Young’s murder. Rather than make definitive statements about Donald Young, his blog posts were headed by questions. Its almost as if he was looking for some help from his supporters to put the Donald Young story together. He even solicited his supporters to go out and find other men in which Obama may have had similar experiences. They were not successful.
LARRY LOSES A STAUNCH SUPPORTER:
In March, 2008, Larry’s close confident and staunch supporter, “Victor” began to question Larry about this new “injection” into his meme about his encounters with Obama. Eventually, there was a fallout between Victor and Larry, because according to letters from Victor, that were published on Big Head DC by Larry, Victor felt there were many discrepancies in Larry’s story and that the Donald Young story was not only unexpected (two months after broadcasting the video on You Tube), but also inconsistent with what Larry had said in the past.
MY INTERVIEWS WITH TWO CHICAGOANS:
I had the opportunity to interview two people about the Donald Young murder. Both live in Chicago. One is a journalist, the other is the head of a Gay Men Coalition.
The Journalist was interviewed a few weeks ago. One of the questions I asked him was how well did he know Donald Young. The journalist, who asked to remain anonymous for the time being told me he did not know Mr. Young personally, but he knew of Mr. Young, prior to his death. He said he knew of Mr. Young’s accomplishments as well as attended the Donald Young funeral at TUCC.
I asked him could Donald Young have been attached to the Obama campaign back in 2007? He said that was highly unlikely since Donald Young had just achieved his second Masters degree and was also heavily involved with TUCC’s choir as well as conducting other choirs at public events. The Journalist said his plate was full and in his opinion could not have found time for anything else, like campaigning. It was PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE that Donald Young was active in his music as well as his teaching.
Last week I also interviewed a leader of a Gay Coalition movement in Chicago. I will not reveal his name because it is my experience that those opposed to having the TRUTH told about Larry Sinclair and his tale about Obama, Sex, Drugs and Murder would probably try and harass this man.
For the purposes of this article, I will refer to him as Mr. Gilletto. Mr. Gilletto told me that his organization had been in constant touch with the CPD since the murders of both Larry Bland and Donald Young. According to Mr. Gilletto, the purpose of staying in touch with the CPD was to determine if gay men were under attack by a serial killer. He explained that both lived in close proximity to each other. He also explained that his contact with CPD was to see if there was any connection to the murders in terms of forensics. The CPD and Mr. Gilletto are still in contact, and as of this writing, Mr. Gilletto was not at liberty to tell me the findings of the forensics.
However, Mr. Gilletto said that there were indeed similarities in the two murders. The obvious of courser was that they were gay and African American men. Secondly, as I previously mentioned they lived in the same neighborhood. The last similarity is something that I consider and exclusive and had never heard before. BOTH MEN WERE MEMBERS OF A SOCIAL NETWORK CALLED Adam 4 Adam. Adam 4 Adam, as described in Wikipedia has had its share of problems with more than a few of their members dying under unusual circumstances after meeting with someone from that network.
It’s very interesting that in my research, I found the internet SATURATED with the Donald Young/Larry Sinclair/Barack Obama invective, yet no where did I find a reference to Young or Bland having been members of a social network with a dubious history.
LARRY’S AFFIDAVIT TO THE CHICAGO POLICE DEPARTMENT:
The real challenge came in April, 2008. After much pressure from his supporters, Larry contacted the Chicago Police Department and sent them an affidavit of what he knew about Donald Young. In doing this, he offered to submit telephone numbers as well. As M&N pointed out in a post dated around the same time, Larry’s minions assumed the numbers he was sending to the CPD were the numbers that Donald Young called from. By the way, obtaining those numbers are very easy. They normally come in your monthly statements, or you can obtain them online.
Sinclair allegedly led his supporters to believe he was submitting Donald Young’s numbers from Young’s alleged contact with Sinclair. However, all he submitted to the CPD were the FOUR phone numbers he claimed that he had while moving from one place to another.
But wait! That’s not the most telling and damning thing about the Donald Young saga and Larry Sinclair.
The affidavit is lacking a lot of the bluster and hoopla that Larry was so famous for on his blog.
No where in that affidavit does Larry mention his often sensational claims that Obama and Reverend Wright had something to do with the Donald Young’s murder. This is quite a contrast to what appeared on his blog about Donald Young and the Obama-Wright connection.
(That darn dog just refuses to bark!)
I found it odd that for weeks, Larry’s blog was filled with speculation and accusations about Obama and his connection to the Donald Young and Larry Bland murders. In fact, Larry Bland was never mentioned in the affidavit nor was any hint that Larry felt there was a connection between Obama and the two murders.
(Damn that non-barking dog!)
THE NATIONAL PRESS CONFERENCE:
In another case of “The Dog That Didn’t Bark”, after thoroughly reviewing the June 18, 2008 NPC transcript of Larry’s statement at his infamous press conference, again, like the affidavit to the CPD, no where in his statement did he mention any connection to the Obama or Wright and the Donald Young murder.
Conclusion: Curious incidents…
I find it curious that Larry Sinclair never mentioned Donald Young in his initial video.
I find it curious that Larry Sinclair never mentioned Donald Young in any of his radio interviews until two months after his initial video.
I find it curious that given all the sensationalism and garish headlines on his blogs about the Obama/Wright murder conspiracy, not once was his declarative statements about Barack Obama’s culpability in the Donald Young murder mentioned in his affidavit to the CPD nor his written statement at the National press Club.
The Dog That Didn’t Bark, is the metaphorical way of saying Larry Sinclair’s story about Donald Young contacting him as well as implicating Barack Obama in the murder of Donald Young is missing some key elements. Those missing elements are essentially the “non-barking dog”.
