Michele Bachmann’s Head-Banging, Gay-Bashing BFF

How the Minnesota lawmaker fell in with a controversial hair-metal evangelist.

— By Tim Murphy



Tue May. 17, 2011 3:00 AM PDT

In late September, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R–Minn.) will travel to a greyhound racetrack on the outskirts of Kansas City, Kansas, to speak at the Freedom Jamboree, a five-day festival billed as "the first national nominating convention" for the tea party. Bachmann, who is considering a run for president, will be joined by some familiar faces—WorldNetDaily editor and arch-birther Joseph Farah will be there; so will Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, the architect of Arizona’s harsh immigration law.

One confirmed speaker, however, is not like all the others: Bradlee Dean is a Minnesota radio host, anti-gay activist, and drummer for the band Junkyard Prophet, voted "the second-best unsigned band in the nation" in 1996 by Heaven's Metal magazine. Dean is likely the only scheduled speaker with a tattoo of Abraham sacrificing Isaac on his forearm; he is almost certainly the only scheduled speaker who has ever gone more than a decade without cutting his hair—a lifestyle decision that gives him a more-than-passing resemblance to Poison's Bret Michaels.



But over the last five years, Bachmann, the politician, and Dean, the metal-head, have formed an unlikely but powerful alliance. Bachmann has helped raise money for Dean’s traveling youth ministry, You Can Run But You Cannot Hide International; guest-starred in his television series; and prayed for his ministry to multiply 10-fold. Dean, for his part, has embraced Bachmann, whose district includes his suburban community of Annandale, as an ally against the gay agenda. But his inflammatory rhetoric and past links to an anti-government organization make Bachmann's own controversial views seem downright pedestrian—and raise serious questions about the congresswoman's choice of associates.

A staunch social conservative, who found his calling after one-too-many close calls with hard drugs, Dean's ministry travels to public schools across the country to perform what it calls "shock treatment." After an opening performance from Junkyard Prophet—"the type of music your kids can relate to"—Dean delivers his faith-based pitch to students, on topics ranging from alcohol, to abortion, to pornography and "impure thoughts." As the Minnesota Independent has chronicled extensively, You Can Run But You Cannot Hide's performances have sparked walkouts from students and public apologies from school administrators, who thought they were spending $1,500 for an anti-drug lecture. (As one student put it, "It seemed like total propaganda. It was like a cult.")

I'm not surprised there's crazy people around preaching this kind of shit. What worries me more is that a shitload of people actually believe in this kind of crap. That's beyond my perception of reality...

How can schools allow that nutcase to preach to their students?? If my son or daughter was going to a school that allowed that shit, I would pull them out the same day.
