Although Bradlee Dean was listed as one of the speakers prior to Larry Klayman's November 19 Reclaim America Second American Revolution rally in Washington DC, no video footage of him speaking to the hundred or so souls who turned out has surfaced anywhere.
Not even on the Reclaim America website--which now sports videos of the rest of those on the bill--nor Freedom Watch's YouTube channel has posted footage of Annandale's best known toxic metal Christian. Acting on a reader's tip, only City Pages caught a glimpse of Dean's ponytail in a photo taken at the rally.
You'd think that any publicity would be welcomed under the circumstances, but self-proclaimed journalist and webmaster Kevin Banet, who runs Tree Frog Click publicity service, is just plain outraged.
In Hate Mongering CityPages’ Ever-Paranoid Eyes "Spots" Christian Patriot Bradlee Dean at Rally, a column posted on the Freedom Outpost blog, Banet writes:
. . . CityPages squawks about Dean, “He's hidden in plain sight behind Captain America in this photo from the rally.” One can imagine the editors and writers, gleefully yucking it up over a Skype conference call, peering at photo after photo, looking for Dean like a gold nugget. They knew about his appearance because he was invited to speak at the event, thus drawing their thunderbolts of anger. In fact, Dean’s tall stature and long hair are very hard to make out in the crowd, but I guess you could say that he’s there. . . .
Banet doesn't mention his own gig as Dean's paid friend publicist in this post but he's been busy for Dean of late and Banet has been transparent about the connection in the past, using testimonials from YCR on his firm's site.
In February, Banet disclosed the business relationship in Mass Shootings, Meds and Mental Illness — What’s the Connection?, when he cited Dean's belief about ADHD:
Dean’s article leads off with the provocative quote: “ADHD is fraud intended to justify starting children on a life of drug addiction,” made by Dr. Edward C. Hamlyn, founding member of the Royal College of General Practitioners. Dean, a drummer in a heavy-metal rock band and a preacher, himself was diagnosed as having ADHD as a child, only to be taken off of it because of adverse reactions. Dean also notes that in past generations, the “rod of correction” was sufficient to avert many kids’ behavior problems.
Perhaps Banet thinks the "rod of correction" will cure the staff at the City Pages of journalism. Or something.
Bradlee Dean gained national attention when he delivered a prayer to the Minnesota House of Representatives that questioned President Obama's faith; the prayer was ordered to be redacted by then-Speaker Kurt Zellers.
Dean latter sued Rachel Maddow for defamation; the lawsuit was dismissed. Klayman has sued City Pages for defamation, although a judge dismissed the lawsuit without prejudice earlier this month, as Wonkette reported in Larry Klayman’s Lawsuit Against CityPages Dismissed Because He Is Bad At The Law.
