The hate preacher was attacked with a baseball bat
An anti-gay preacher carrying a “you deserve rape” sign, has been attacked with a baseball bat.
Brother Dean Saxton, who lives in Glendale, Arizona, was hit with the bat while he stood outside a school with the “you deserve rape” sign.
Known for spreading hate speech, Saxton often preaches anti-gay sermons, and is seen in this particular video outside the Valley high school.
Saxton is seen in a video published on YouTube saying: “The Bible says it’s not okay to be gay”.
He goes on to say: “You need to stop looking up naughty, nasty things on the Internet.”
As he makes the hate speech, various students and teachers approach him and denounce what he is saying, peacefully challenging him on his views.
One teacher says: “I think you’re a disgrace to Christianity. Why don’t you go and preach it to somebody who really wants to hear your message, like Westboro Baptist Church?”
Then a student attacks Saxton while he is still on camera.
Students and staff nearby are seen celebrating as Saxton is clearly dazed by the blow.
He is later seen walking away with blood dripping from his head Tabitha Brubaker, 19, was arrested and charged with felony assault and marijuana possession after the attack.
After the attack, Saxton denied that he was responsible for the attack by inciting the violence. He called the attacker an “LGBT monster”.
