Bradlee Dean is simply one of the most ridiculous, and hence one of the most entertaining, of all the wingnuts. His weekly columns for the Worldnetdaily are Sarah Palin-level word salads, with the added bonus of his atrocious writing (Palin can afford to hire ghostwriters; Dean can’t) and his sad attempts to make himself sound much smarter than he is. This column is a perfect example. But this claim bothers me a great deal:
Just this last week I have traveled through 15 states: Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, and North and South Carolina, reaching out to high school and college students in hopes of finding those who will take the baton our forefathers have given to us.
I’d very much like to know what high schools he spoke at and to see footage of those talks. His history of delivering what are little more than sermons at mandatory school assemblies should raise a huge red flag to school administrators. Now, on with the fun:
Yet, how are they to forge ahead if they themselves do not know what America’s “His-story” has to reveal to them? In my endeavors, I found that what I thought I knew was only the tip of the iceberg in a plethora of information still left undiscovered; that is, as to whom we are as Americans.
I find that paragraph absolutely hilarious. He’s trying so hard to sound smart, using big words when smaller ones would work better. And that last sentence is just a grammatical abortion.
As you know, friends, America is under attack on a daily basis from an un-American, communistic, totalitarian mindset. In fact, it has been stated by dictator Josef Stalin, “America is like a healthy body, and its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within.”
Leaving aside the fact that Dean seems not to have noticed that it was the Soviet Union that has collapsed, not the United States, this quote is almost certainly fake. A wingnut using a fake quote? How entirely unsurprising.
If you are tired of the rhetorical sound of circular reasoning (bringing about no resolve) and defeatism and would like to see resolve brought to your country, then simply “study the past.”
Right. Like you could “study the past” to find out that the quote he uses as a basis for this entire argument is false.
I know that there are skeptics out there that could be transported to the sun and still deny its existence, but the good news is, I’m only going to reveal to you some of America’s landmarks, which, in some cases, are literally in your backyard.

Yep. And guess what? Muhammad is there too. ZOMG! The Founding Fathers created a Muslim nation!
