Ban Kevin Dujan from Sidetracks
From the excellent Snarkopolitan article
|When Dujans Attack, Even Deleting Won’t Help You!|
Kevin Dujan complaining about deleted comments is like Casey Anthony complaining about bad parenting. But even after the makers of “only@brunch”, a video apparently meant to be shown at his local gay bar, apologized and edited out an offensive remark he complained to them about, they are still the latest targets of his undying wrath, which has stretched now to five six posts and well over 8,000 10,000 words.**UPDATE** And now includes harassing an anti-bullying charitystarted by famously pro-LGBT straight footballer, Ben Cohen, for the crime of having an upcoming fundraiser at the bar which showed this video two weeks ago.
Let’s cut to the chase immediately: one of the participants in this video made an ill-advised comment about Trig Palin. To be specific, while discussing Michele Bachmann, one man giggled, “She looks like Trig!” The other men around the table may or may not have heard the comment, which was neither responded to or elaborated on. They continued to talk about Bachmann before moving on to other subjects, and Trig was never brought up again.
That was the whole “attack” in its entirety. It was a mean thing to say, certainly, and stupid. If you nose around Snarkopolitan long enough, you’ll see that from way back, Snarko has no patience with people attacking politicians’ children. Including the children of political opponents. And, it should be needless to say, no patience with attacks on any children, special-needs or not, at all.
But because the producer of the video has edited out the offending footage, or inch-age, as the line was literally four words, and deliberately avoids repeating them, understandably enough, in his apology, almost nobody knows the extent of the “Attack On Trig Palin,” to whit: barely existent. Which is utterly to Kevin Dujan’s advantage. The less known about what was actually said, the more inflatable it is.
In fact, Dujan’s lovely plans for a leading a crusade in Trig’s name fizzled somewhat when the producer immediately gratified the wishes of anybody who truly wanted satisfaction on behalf of that little boy. Here is the apology posted on theonly@brunch website:
At the beginning of the discussion concerning the Michele Bachmann Newsweek cover, a co-host made an inappropriate reference to Trig Palin, the son of Sarah and Todd Palin. The comment was tasteless and unjustifiable. only@brunch, is not and will not be a platform for the deriding or ostracizing of individuals for the way they were born. Nor for the way people chose to celebrate who they are. It is with sincerity, sympathy, and empathy that I apologize on behalf of only @brunch and DowntownCupid Productions for the offensive comment.”
That would seem pretty complete to anyone not utterly dedicated to outrage farming. One of Dujan’s own followers who did see the video before it was edited (as did I), unwittingly demonstrates that he smells the manure Dujan’s trying to spread, too:

When I first read your previous post on this and watched the videoI thought the Trig comment wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. Then I realized how reflexively he made it, and am sure that was only because they make comments like that all the time. It obviously wasn’t the first time he had used Trig as a punchline. (Emphasis mine)
As a follower of the World’s Crappiest Cult Leader, Neil naturally tries to integrate his cognitive dissonance, but it’s clear his first reaction was “Whuh? You mean that’s it?” Then he adds a little interpretive dance number of his own, and feels better, all dissonance smoothed into a harmonic fantasia in the key of outrage sharp, minor.
The producer of the video acted quickly after the first angry comment by”Hillbuzz” on his YouTube channel.Dujan himself screencapped the exchange, showing that only@brunch producer Jared Hall took just one day to post his apology on his site and on YouTube.
That didn’t stop Dujan from encouraging his Hillbuzzing devotees to swarm the YouTube comments, including this abusive little item, from somebody who thinks “decent queens” disparage gays who lisp:
If only this moral indignation had been felt when Kevin Dujan, back in August of 2010, asked on Hillbuzz, “Should children of a president never be criticized, especially if they are black?” What on earth about the President’s daughters, who were, I believe, eleven and nine at the time, Dujan wanted to criticize–but was held back by their blackness from doing, it is beyond the scope of someone who isn’t an Orc to divine.
Dujan later deleted that entire post, perhaps, I’d like to think, as a result of the scrutiny he received here. But though he can wipe the schmutz off his own site, evidence of his willingness to attack young children of a political opponent exists onother sites (don’t click unless you’re willing to grind your teeth to stumps):
Because childhood should only be defended when the child belongs to the right parents.
Dujan admits that “Only@Brunch” did respond to, as he puts it, “great national criticism:”
Jared Hall and Downtown Cupid productions could have easily edited out the attack on Trig Palin before the show aired; in fact, they’ve subsequently edited this part out of the current YouTube video they have posted (live since 8/21/11) as “Only@Brunch” has received great national criticism for encouraging gay men to bully children (just because they don’t agree with their mothers’ politics).
That “great national criticism” being, of course, ludicrously, his own previous post. He then goes on to hitch up his Crusader tabard and complain about gay mockery of adult conservative Christians, which he describes as “bullying.” Leaving aside the questions of freedom of speech and adults’ ability to shift for themselves, how are we then to view his own spectacularly vicious mockery of Michelle Obama, from her physical attributes, in particular her complexion:
By his own definition, Kevin Dujan is a bully par excellence, although he’s spent a lot of time trying to scrub his site of evidence. The infamous Michelle Obama“Whitey Tape” post is gone, although on other sites, once again, theevidence lingers on.
Likewise, despite his scrubbing, he will always be remembered for his bullying of Shelby, the wife of a soldier KIA in the now deleted infamous USO War Widow Post back in November of 2010. Dujan senselessly attacked her (for not getting off her butt and doing more for the USO!) and, given more than the benefit of the doubt by his eye-rubbing, astonished fans, not only did not apologize, but upped the ante (and a middle finger), comparing himself to Jesus into the bargain.
If Jesus were truly like the Harvey Bilk of Boystown, confessionals would be interchangeable with iron maidens, and penitents would be praying burning rosaries.
Thank goodness Jesus has lower standards than Kevin Dujan.
