Hatemonger Bradlee Dean Sends President Obama a Letter


Poor “evangelist rockstar” Bradlee Dean has been having a heck of a time lately. One of his last gigs — playing a high school auditorium in Iowa, where he angered students and parents alike with his anti-gay rhetoric and graphic abortion photos – was met with bad publicity and a pile of criticism for the principal who hired him. And the Minnesota Republican Party — once such a big fan of his work that they brought him to the capitol to offer a legislative prayer (that ended in disaster) — is now encouraging schools not to let him on campus, saying it could jeopardize their future in politics.

So how is Dean drumming up some more attention? He’s sent a letter to President Barack Obama.

Via press release (of course):

Bradlee Dean, founder and CEO of You Can Run But You Cannot Hide International and host of Sons of Liberty Radio, sent a letter to President Obama this week confronting his outspoken support of abortion.

“Mr. President, when you took your oath of office, you swore to ‘defend the Constitution of the United States, so help me God.’ When it comes to protecting life, you have blatantly disregarded the Constitution you swore to uphold. You also defied God, whom you asked to help you discharge the duties of your office. In specific, you advocate abortion, in direct violation of the Constitution and Common Law, which is based on the Mosaic Institution.”

So what’s the impetus behind the letter? It appears to be promotional material for new videos of his band, “Junkyard Prophets.” Along with the music videos is a heavily produced and edited piece on how he was kicked out of the Iowa high school. That ought to bring in some new customers.
