Bradlee Dean at the RNC

Here’s an amusing video of Bradlee Dean being interviewed by one of the PolitiChicks at the Republican National Convention. He talks about his ridiculous lawsuit against Rachel Maddow (and AINN, my former employer). He doesn’t mention that he’s been ordered to pay the legal fees of the defendants.

He also falsely claims that Maddow deceptively edited a statement from his radio show to make it seem like he was calling for the death of gay people. Here’s the full quote:

“Muslims are calling for the executions of homosexuals in America. This just shows you 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 is an abomination.”

It’s pretty clear to me.

    The “interviewer” is just setting up his talking points. This is pretty bad even for a friendly outlet.

    Well of course, we all know that in Wingnutville giving a complete and accurate quote of what someone says is clearly a case of taking words out of context.

    The context being of course “Well of course my words sound bad to you, because you’re not part of the Wingnut secret fan club”.

    It’s the Newt Gringrich school of journalism: If you quote what I actually said, you’re committing hate speech against me.

    You have to wonder if people like Dean were always that stupid, or whether they took night classes.

    Hunter, I agree that Mr. Dean is no intellectual, and his views are toxic and based only on rightwing “reality”. Now, imagine what level of intellect are his many followers. That is what scares me, in fear for my children and grandchildren’s future.

    Do the right even understand the concept of truth and integrity any more?
