Rachel Maddow Bradlee Dean: Maddow Sued: Using Dean to Hurt Michele Bachmann?

Larry Klayman, the founder of Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch has filed a $50 Million lawsuit against MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow on behalf of Bradlee Dean. Dean is a former hard-metal rocker who has founded the You Can Run But You Can’t Hide non-profit ministry. Maddow allegedly accused Dean of calling for the execution of gays, which he denies. Klayman said the lawsuit was filed “as a matter of principle.”

…An earlier report from the ministry said Maddow contended on her program that Dean said: “The Muslims are calling for the execution of homosexuals in America. This was just released yesterday and it shows you that they themselves are upholding the laws that are even in the Bible of the Judeo-Christian God. But they seem to be more moral than even the American Christians do because these people are livid about enforcing their laws. They know homosexuality’s an abomination. If America won’t enforce the laws, God will raise up a foreign enemy to do just that.”

The quote, however, was an edited version of Dean’s original message, which was a benign warning to the homosexual community that the Bible calls the behavior a sin, which has consequences, so they should “flee” from it. Dean explains he was only trying to urge the Christian community to take  the radical leftist homosexual agenda more seriously.

The ministry announcement said, “In an interview earlier this year, MSNBC’s president Phil Griffin admitted that the network, to boost its ratings, caters to the so-called ‘progressive left.’  This explains the malicious attacks on Bradlee Dean and his ministry, which are being used to harm the presidential campaign of Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, who is a conservative Christian.”

Dean is a supporter of Congresswoman Michele Bachmann’s presidential campaign. Read Dean’s profile here. The Minnesota Independent has an interesting article on Dean.

  • Wow, Maddow pulling a page out of Maureen Dowd’s playbook….

    I can’t wait to see how she spins this into her victimization.
