Can you spot Bradlee Dean in this photo from wingnut "2nd American Revolution" event?
On Tuesday, Bradlee Dean's lawyer, Larry Klayman, held his much-hyped "second American revolution" event in D.C.
Right-wing activist Larry Klayman is so sure his long-planned "second American revolution" will succeed Tuesday that he's calling for a "Constitutional congress" to plan for life after President Barack Obama.
The founder of Judicial Watch says he's gathered a coalition of conservative and libertarian activists to demonstrate beginning at 10 a.m. at Lafayette Park, across the street from the White House.
This "Reclaim America Now" demonstration, which he's predicted would draw millions of protesters, will "peacefully and ultimately remove the tyrant evil fool in the White House, as well as corrupt Republican leaders like Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell."
You'll be shocked to learn that Klayman's big day came and went without any sort of revolution taking place. According to U.S. News & World report, no more than 100 people showed up, and one of them disqualified himself from ever being taken seriously by offering up this racist critique of President Obama.
"He's kind of like a skunk," the attendee joked to U.S. News. "He's half white, half black, and everything he does stinks."
If you think that level of crazy might be a bit much even for Bradlee, think again (of course, you shouldn't have thought that in the first place). He's hidden in plain sight behind Captain America in this photo from the rally (click to enlarge).
With so many good reasons to be critical of the president, it's too bad folks like Dean and Klayman are blind to them and instead choose to stick with tired tropes about fraudulent birth certificates, Islamic conspiracies, and the marginalization of Christianity in America.
