The conservative activist who gained fame during the 2012 election for “unskewing” polls favorable to Barack Obama explained this weekend his newest revelation: the president is “actually” gay.

Dean Chambers, founder of UnSkewedPolls.com wrote in the Examiner that Newsweek got it wrong when it ran a cover praising Obama for his evolution on gay marriage last year. Obama was not “basically” the nation’s first gay president for his progressive stance on the issue, but actually so.

“I do believe that Barack Obama is in fact our first gay president,” he wrote. “But I believe this for entirely different reasons. I believe the man actually is gay. Don’t tell me his marriage to Michelle and having two children disproves that he’s gay.”

In the article, Chambers cites various conspiracy theories claiming to show Barack Obama’s closeted life in Chicago as a state senator. He takes it even a step further, however, in defending Obama’s Christian faith by arguing that people of Muslim faith “are known to stone someone for being gay.”

“Would you be a Muslim if it put you as risk for being killed because of your lifestyle choices?” he asks.
