Bradlee Dean calls Barack Obama a "homo" [AUDIO]
Comments made by Bradlee Dean and sidekick Jake McMillan during this weekend's edition of Bradlee's radio show up the ante as far as the duo's preposterousness goes -- and that's saying something.
During an anti-gay diatribe, McMillan claimed that "half of the murders in large cities were committed by homosexuals." As is often the case with other right wing nuts and the outrageous claims they make, McMillan cited no source for his "statistic."
McMillan's explanation for all the murderous gays? "This is where it goes right back to scripture. God did call this an abomination, when a person's mind has gone to that extent of committing an abominable act -- sin -- it shows what else they are capable of," he said.
Here's the audio of that exchange:
Not to be outdone, Dean, who just over two years ago was invited by the MNGOP to lead a prayer at the legislature, attempted to explain why "everybody jumped on the wagon" of gay rights causes in recent years by alleging it all starts with our "homosexual" President.
"They got their homo in office, right?" Bradlee said. "They got their homosexual in office that says, you know what, let's go for this."
As evidence of Barack's gayness, Dean cited a 2012 World
Nut Net Daily piece by Jerome Corsi that claims Obama's "participation in the 'gay' bar and bathhouse scene [in Chicago] was so well known that many who were aware of his lifestyle were shocked when he ran for president and finally won the White House."
Corsi's sources? A Hillary Clinton activist and an unnamed "member of the East Bank Club in Chicago," among other similarly questionable ones.
Here's that audio:
Finally, Bradlee spent a couple minutes railing against Rachel Maddow. Dean, you'll recall, filed a ridiculously unsuccessful defamation lawsuit against Maddow that culminated with a judge ordering him to pay her legal expenses.
Bradlee, who last year mocked Maddow's looks on Facebook, has now taken to calling her "shim" (a combination of "she" and "him").
Here, if you can stand to listen to it, is that audio:
