Judge Lets Rachel Maddow Extort World’s Greatest Heavy-Metal Anti-Abortion Public School Assembly Star

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

This is actually not the dude from Jay & Silent BobWhat is the world coming to when you cannot sue known lesbian Rachel Maddow for $50 million for defamation for quoting your own words? And when, in fact, you must pay her legal fees (as well as the legal fees of a now defunct paper, the Minnesota Independent) just for suing her for $50 million for defamation for quoting your own words? ATTICA! ATTICA! Anyway, Wonkette’s beloved Bradlee Dean, last seen calling girls filthy whores and making them cry at a public school assembly on “bullying” in Dunkerton, Iowa, has not only not won his $50 million defamation suit against Maddow and the Independent, but is on the hook for $24 large.

Dean filed the suit last summer, arguing Maddow and the Independent’s Andy Birkey defamed him by taking an excerpt from his radio show out of context. The suit alleged the two journalists unfairly targeted him because they were at odds with Dean’s political views, specifically calling Birkey a “secularist and/or atheist and gay activist with a politically left ideology who despises people of faith, including but not limited to the Congresswoman Michele Bachmann.”

Let us watch together Maddow’s segments on Dean, which he posted for your viewing pleasure.

That is pretty damningly defamatory, how she used his own words and stuff! Especially when you consider his own blog posts about Matthew Shepard and “anti-bullying” being shoved down students’ throats. Like this, “Hate Crimes — Bigotry in Reverse.”

Hate Crimes! Hate crimes! The homosexual radicals are trying to push an illegal agenda through hate crimes, not understanding that all crime is motivated by hate. What is this really about? And who’s doing the hating?
[…]
This explains the Matthew Shepard distorted “hate crimes” law, which has been exposed by ABC’s 20/20 as having nothing to do with Matthew’s sexual orientation. This also explains the supposed “anti-bullying” policy being shoved down students’ throats in public schools, like it or not.

And here’s the fun (public school!) assembly he starred in in Iowa:

“They told my daughter, the girls, that they were going to have mud on their wedding dresses if they weren’t virgins,” said Jennifer Littlefield, a parent upset with the band’s performance. […]

Littlefield also did not appreciate what she described as gay bashing.

“They told these kids that anyone who was gay was going to die at the age of 42,” she said. […]

The girls, meanwhile, were told to save themselves for their husbands and assume a submissive role in the household. According to witnesses, the leader in that effort also forced the young ladies to chant a manta of sorts about remaining pure.

      Actually the "42" bit might be the only part he's getting right. That'll soon be the age at which the gluttonous-for-punishment American typically does die, only it's from their body giving up under the duress of transfat overconsumption, blocked arteries, hypoglycemic arrest and caved-in metabolistic resilience.

    What this story could really use is a Fox "News" sort of spin, where the idiot STILL comes out looking like a hero, because that is a lot easier to laugh at. But that whole, "The girls, meanwhile, were told to save themselves for their husbands and assume a submissive role in the household", thing is hard to argue with…if you're a guy… and don't really want to wake up in the morning with your junk. Trust me young fellas, if you are stupid enough to say shit like this to your wife (or prosective wife), don't have the bad sense to go to sleep around her.

      I always wanted to ask people who say this, what happens if someone "chooses" to be gay at the age of 43? Are they struck dead retroactively, by time-travelling space-Hitler? Or does the clock only start ticking when they "decide" to be gay, in which case, you're guaranteed to live to the respectable age of 85?

    • http://sciencekick.blogspot.com valthemus

  • SayItWithWookies

    Hmm — save yourself for marriage or have sex before marriage? I vote for sex instead of marriage — but either way, like with evolution, I think we should teach the controversy.

      Fuck, I hope not. *checks roots*.

    • SorosBot

      Ass rockers? Aside from Nugent, they all played some awesome music back in the day. And of course the most successful of the hair rockers, Jon Bon Jovi, is a hardcore liberal activist.

    Wait…

    Though the band has been pilloried by many on the political left for some of its views, members of the group have often voiced less than doctrinaire positions. Dean, for example, describes former President George W. Bush as a "punk, lyin' stinkin' kid," while maintaining former Vice-President Dick Cheney is a "straight-up liar" who "will be in Hell pretty soon."

    So I guess even a rabid homophobic moranic wingturd can be right on the odd occasion.

    Good god christian rock is lame…christian metal is worse. This guy is cultivating the wrong look…Dave Mustaine is a douchey rocker born again who can't sing worth a shit, either. The only reason to like Metallica is because they fired his fuckin' ass. Anyway judging by the shittiness of his music 24k is going to be a tall order…he's going to need a lot of Burger King paychecks to pay for those legal fees. Bradlee was just following the Republican mantra: if you can't be born rich, rip someone else off and then pretend you're self-made…it just didn't work out this time, hahaha.

  • aklibtard

    Shit, how did he he think he would win this? When you put yourself out as a public figure (i.e. hosting a hate mongering radio show) people can basically say any fucking thing they want to about you. Maybe if he'd ever noticed the existence of every tabloid magazine ever printed he'd have thought about this.

  • danielwalldammit

    Lol, that's hilarious. And it's about time that Dean got slapped down on this one.
