Conservative Rocker Sues MSNBC For Defamation

| Filed under: TV NewsGay Gay GayLegal MattersPolitikMichele BachmannLGBT

Bradlee Dean, heavy-metal rocker/conservative radio host and preacher, is suing MSNBC and Rachel Maddow for defamation.

According to Dean, Maddow twisted his comments on Muslim Sharia law and homosexuality in, what he believes, an effort to undermine Michele Bachmann's candidacy for the Republican presidential ticket.

A while back, Dean openly spoke on Muslim Sharia law's call for the execution of homosexuals. He then said in that sense they are more moral than most American Christians.

Here's his entire quote:

Muslims are calling for the execution for 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, the Judeo Christian God. They seem to be more moral than even the American Christians do. Because these people are livid about enforcing their laws, they know homosexuality is an abomination. And I continually reach out to the homosexual communities on this radio show, and I warn them, which ones love? Here you have Obama condemning it behind the backs of the homosexuals but to their faces he's promoting it. I say this to my gay friends out there the ones that continuously nitpick everything I say. Hollywood is promoting immorality and the God of the Heavens in Jesus names is warning you to flee from the wrath to come, yet you have Muslims calling for your execution. If America won't enforce the laws, God will raise up a foreign enemy to do just that's what you're seeing in America today. Read Leviticus 26 America.

Dean later put his words into better context, insisting he doesn't condone any sort of execution.

So when Rachel Maddow brought him up during a segment, Dean felt she used it to paint him as an anti-gay activist who advocates murder.

Bachmann has also been an enthusiastic supporter of Dean and his work, so Dean feels this is an overall attack toward her campaign.

Okay, when we first learned of this, we weren't going to be surprised if Maddow had in fact taken his words a little out of context. Most pundits do, Liberal and Conservative alike.

But then we watched the whole segment, and she clearly adds in the part where he wanted everyone to know what he really meant with those words.

In fact, the segment isn't exactly focusing on him. She used him in description as she was questioning a politician's donations to his band. She assumed it would be the other way around. If the focus had been on him and his comments, she probably would have stopped there instead of going back to her original point.

We find Rachel Maddow guilty of judgmental eyebrow raises. But guilty of defamation?

What do U think?

    That idiot hedge his bets in every sentence — he would start strong, grab a bit f a brain and reign it in. What a f'in moron. IF she called him out then it is because she say through it — but she didn't call him out. She should have though. He's a dumb twaat.

    If you listen to his rantings he's the nastiest cruelest most heartless SOB next to maybe Fred Phelps. So I guess he was really saying he loves gay people and wants to be their friend and Maddow just totally took it out of context.

    Seriously he is exactly what is wrong with the religious right in this country. They don't fully understand the ramifications of separation of church and state. When people rule with out reason and only with fundamental religious reasoning you get radicals who go to far. I just want to yell at people like this. The only thing that keeps me from doing it is that most of these people have absolutely no chance to form opinions for themselves. Everything has been taught to them and they have never been taught HOW to think only WHAT to think. He did practically say that he condone the murder of gay people and he should be ashamed of himself. As for the politician giving money to the band. Well thats how they work. The more public outlets they can get to spew uneducated hate the more chances they have to get to people. Its a sad sad world and I hope that a republican with a brain stops her in her tracks because I would Immigrate to Canada if she ever became president or VP. Ignorant doesn't even begin to describe her.

    this moron named Rachel Maddow needs a good dose of STFU most the time :)

    so pathetic. look, if people are dumb enough to think god hates gays..then WHY did he make gays? Isn't religion and Christianity about how god made all of us? I think people need to realize that there has to be a separation…look, heaven is heaven, earth is earth. Gays aren't usually bad people. If they are bad, they are just a bad person.
    I find this a bit funny because it's the exact same reasoning people used for witches, blacks, and every other person. It's false! love one another

    It kills me that this idiot is suing Rachel for her doing what her show and beliefs are about. What makes his beliefs more validated then hers she should counter sue for $50 million. Besides why would he be watching her show? I think he has a radio talk show I don't believe in what he does but it's his life not mine to judge so I wouldn't listen to his radio show? Common sense, he is out for money. There is also an article you can goggle or bing about his ties with Miss Michelle Bachmann! They claim they want less govt. And more freedom and liberties but if your beliefs are not like theirs obviously you have no freedom whence the lawsuit! Honestly, what the hell and where do these people come from? It's like they were from the 1800's? Makes me wonder about the state of MN? This guy has several you tube videos search under Bradlee Dean you will see his hate he thinks gays should be punishable by the death penalty! If this case is tried in MN he met win if they have a radical right judge! This is our version of terrorism…simply put if Jeff and Jim are happy love each other have kids why would you care? There not going to be going to his ministry! What makes his views more important then Jeff and Jim's?

    Re: LuverGirl1021 – You should listen to your on advice! Don't watch her show but realize she has freedom of speech just like you and I. I am guessing you know nothing about her cuz she isn't on Jersey Shore or Teen Mom?

    I support gay marriage as I feel it is a right in a free society. I do not support this type of preacher/rocker guy but I do not support Rachel. I find her to mock anything she disagrees with. I flipped channels on election night and felt CNN covered it the best. Rachel and her co-anchors from MSNBC got the lowest ratings for that night because they sat at a table mocking anyone that was not a progressive liberal. BORING!!!
