It used to be that Bluestem could depend on local sources for news of toxic metal preacher Bradlee Dean's latest rantings and not have to listen to his radio show ourselves. But since his lawyer initiated yet another lawsuit (we'll let Wonkette explain), those heroes of fee speech have been silenced while the legal eagles work things out.
Funny how a guy like Dean who describes himself as a son of liberty works that way.
Fortunately, People for the American Way's Right Wing Watch is listening to Dean's show so we don't have to. In Bradlee Dean Has Epic Meltdown over Minnesota's Gay Marriage Law, RWW's Brian Tashman reports:
Minnesota-based Religious Right activist/rock star Bradlee Dean went ballistic on his radio show yesterday in response to his state’s new marriage equality law. Dean warned that Gov. Mark Dayton, who signed the same-sex marriage bill into law, is at “war with God” and is “about to find out what it’s like as to what the fallout is when you throw rocks towards God, he’s going to learn how gravity works.” He added that Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, who backed his state’s marriage equality law, and other pro-gay rights “criminals” will face divine justice as well.
Listen to the audio at RRW. Tashman points to some classic Dean schtick:
Dean even seems to believe that every gay person in the country showed up for yesterday’s celebration of the marriage equality law in order to “push their propaganda and their agendas on the American people,” just as Saul Alinsky commanded.
“They come from all over the country to do this so what you’ve seen was probably the whole lump of the population of the homosexual community in the United States of America,” Dean said. . . .
Dean really needs to get out more.
Bluestem also found Dean's claim at the 42 second mark at this clip that Dayton was in cohoots with George Soros fascinating (if we can trust Dean's claim, it may explain why Dayton caved on protecting trout streams, given Soros' broad investments in the gas and oil industry).
Conservatives should be able to shake their heads over Dean's claim that God rejects the prayers of the Minnesota Family Council and his assertion that they were "spineless capitulators, burned hippies (beginning at 1:41 in the audio at this link):"
Dude, I've already bore my cross. It's called the prayer that rocked the capitol. I''ve already done my part. I was asked to step up by the Minnesota Family Council. Nothing but a bunch of spineless capitulators, burned hippies that think they're all that and a bag of chips, and yesterday we found that the bag of chips was open and they were stepped on.
But I was really happy to hear that they were in a room in the capitol praying to Je-s-us that he would come and do something for them that he himself commanded them to do, but they're unwilling to do what God called them to do and then they wonder why they continuously get . . . the backwards results that they continuously get.
Why are we losing the day? Because you're not man enough to stand up and play the man, you're not willing to bear your cross and therein lies the problem.
We can't thank RRW for bearing the cross of monitoring Dean now that the locals can do so no longer.
In the meantime we'll wait to see just what the devil Dean means when he says,"play the man." That may explain a great deal already.
