Preacher Carrying ‘You Deserve To Be Raped’ Sign Gets Hit With A Baseball Bat And The Comments Are Priceless

How far is too far when it comes to stopping someone spreading hate speech? Hitting them over the head with a baseball bat, apparently. Controversial street preacher Brother Dean Saxton spends his days cheering homophobia and holding signs telling women they deserve rape for not being true Christians. A while ago, Brother Dean posted a YouTube video of his demonstration at Apollo High School. There, he used a megaphone to tell students they’re going to hell. A couple of minutes into the video, you can hear him being hit from behind. Brother Dean was able to walk away, but he was bleeding from a gash on his head.

The assault itself was not filmed nor was the alleged attacker. Several weeks later, however, Tabitha Brubaker, 19, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault. In her statement to police, she “advised that she had no involvement with the incident.” In spite of that, Brubaker was held on a $10,000 bond at the MCSO 4th Ave Jail facility for more than a week.

But one of his demonstrations was cut short when Brother Dean got hit with a baseball bat

But supporters quickly put up two different fundraisers, and the combined funds were sufficient to get Tabitha released on June 3rd. As she was awaiting trial, several lawyers offered to represent Tabitha pro bono. In the end, however, Tabitha got 60 days of jail time. Unfortunately, she never got back the $10k bail money that was raised from a supportive community by her ex-partner who posted it.

Later, Saxton kicked Mackenzie Brandt, a University of Arizona criminal justice studies sophomore and was given assault charges himself. This got him banned from campus for a year. When the ban was lifted, Saxton returned to patronizing about how Muslims are terrorists, homosexuality is a sin, and students who wear yoga pants “deserve rape.”

Here’s what people had to say about it

Well, TBH. He asked for it. Dressing the way he did and carrying that sign. It's just an open invitation to anyone to hit him with a baseball bat, hockey stick, car jack, forklifttruck, or anything other you might accidentally be having handy at the moment. They should vaccinate him with Round Up.

He was asking for it. He was going around and yelling. Attracting the wrong kind of attention. Don't even get me started on what he was wearing. I would not even wear that in front of my grandmother. Shame on him for having no standards. Does he really think that he is safe from hell? I bet he's doing this to cover up a secret gay agenda. Guys like him gotta be desperate for attention but can't let his church now he's sleeping around. (This part is all sarcasm) But honestly though, "you deserve rape" I am actually speechless. How dare he say that. What on Earth?

I have absolutely no sympathy for him, he deserved that and much more. He is a vile piece of sh*t, I understand the freedom of speech but seriously where is the line drawn? What he is doing is illegal in most of Australia. BTW doesn’t the bible state MANY times not to judge and that God is the only one to make judgement?

All those fucked up comments saying he didn't deserve what he got... Rape is a crime and when he says 'you deserve to be raped' then he's encouraging a crime - and that has nothing to do with freedom of speech. So yeah, hit him ten times with a fucking baseball bat until he develops some common sense.

Don’t assume these people are trying to convert anyone or that they give a shit about people’s “souls” or anything. It’s not about that. They are just afraid of what they imagine their god will do to them if they don’t obey and spread the gospel. They are acting fully in self interest and fear of some kind of bizarre, childish-ass punishment of “hell.”

What the hell in these days are going on!Like back in middle ages, woman don't have rights in to her own body, physical and mental health, life choices. How he can say that ?! Doesn't matter what are woman/man wearing, rapist is rapist. Why it's always woman fault if she was raped or even got pregnant after this? If she choose abortion, and then she will be killer and that's her fault again, because she didn't use birth control, and its all happened for her because of her dress or skirt length, or pants. I don't want to belong to world with view like this. If woman is wearing skirt, dress or what ever, non of these things does't give right to rape her, it's rapist choice. It's sounds like fighting, kicking, yelling, screaming, crying , begging not to do that, gone in the air and it doesn't count because she looked like she wanted to be raped. If this will happed to him, he could blame his pants, they were too tight for his ass.

He *was* asking for it. Frequently people like this provoke confrontation to get two things: first they get confirmation that "I'm under attack, I'm oppressed!" Being an oppressed minority is a *huge* part of Evangelical identity. The second piece is financial: they will sue or settle for damages out of court. My old campus had a group of Baptists who did the same thing. This is how they funded their church.

well it's in their nature, men are the prey and women are the hunter well it's in their nature men are provocative and us women are weak, we can't resist temptation. oh but a hit on the head is nothing, there is stuff worse than that. this is what happens when a man talks too much, he should have remained silent, back in my day men stayed in the garage fixing cars. he shouldn't have protested with sunglasses on, that shows a mysterious side and women are just curious and attracted to mystery. good thing he was covered up because if he showed more skin, things could have been much worse than that, that's why men should cover up. naahh it's a lie, I bet my money it was an act, everyone knows men are liars and sluts. he deserves it for being a crazy menist, no one cares what these nazis have to say. if he stayed in his garage fixing cars and did his duty as a man, this wouldn't have happened, men shouldn't be heard but seen. ohhh but it's no big deal, c'on he's just being a drama king.

if he had a good male role model, this wouldn't have happened but nowadays men want rights and shit, as if they don't have enough already see men can't do anything they want! he wasn't able to dodge that hit, shows men are weaker than women and thus men are inferior by nature don't men say they're equal to women? bullshit, he wasn't even able to dodge that ball! see, this is why we don't need menism, I refuse to be part of a culture where men blame their sex because of their own actions menism has ruined families, if he stayed at home doing his man duties, this wouldn't have happened. well at least the one hitting him was cute, I bet he enjoyed it in the end. I refuse to believe this, the man is not macho enough to be hit by a ball, I bet it's all staged because men like attention. This wouldn't have happened if he accepted that compliment and that drink.

Why would you give an obviously deranged individual who needs serious psychological aka MEDICAL attention the title of "Street Preacher." A street preacher is presumably a functional human being with special interests and a desire to communicate them, similar to any one else who has a social/political agenda. If you stand on street corners advocating violence to high school students, you need help, not an adorable title nor a baseball bat to the head. You need meds, lots of them.

The odds of a rape preacher getting hurt from a baseball bat to the head are vanishingly small if it’s a legitimate baseball bat the the head of a rape preacher. The rape preachers body has ways of shutting that whole thing down. If you are a rape preacher and your getting hit in the head with a baseball bat you may as well just relax and enjoy it. Rape preachers getting hit in the head with baseball bats is God’s plan. That rape preacher had buyers remorse. That rape preacher was dressed like a baseball.

Freedom of speech comes with the responsibility of understanding the impact of your words. That is why hate speech can be prevented. If the words ask to hurt others or belittle the pain of others, you need to accept someone is incapable of grasping this responsibility and therefore will have his right to this freedom revoked. Because where would you stop? What if "your opinion" states someone needs to be physically punished and what if your influence on the people around you is large enough for it to happen? Is that ok? Doubt it. Sometimes an opinion is nothing more than personal frustration and that "opinion" needs to stay right between that person and his therapist...

Yes, the only correct answer here is to violently beat people you disagree with. What a progressive society we live in! It scares me more that this woman is out of jail and can go on a rampage at any point when she disagrees with someone. The worst part, is that we as a society encouraged this type of behavior. There are easier ways of resolving this situation. You just note that this person is entitled to whatever opinion they have, no matter how wrong it is, and move on with your life.

Also, this was only okay because it was a man that got beaten. If it was a woman, everyone would be supporting the woman. Everyone would be praising how brave she was.

Did anyone bother to find out how many times he's been hit with a bat before this so-called "attack"? He certainly didn't act the way a normal man would after being hit with the bat. Why did he wait so long before reporting it? At this point, with no witnesses (how convenient), it's his word against the person with the bat. For all we know, it could easily have been consensual.

Remember everyone: “mob justice” is not actual justice. This guy should have been arrested for “speech which incites violence”, which is NOT protected speech. Assault is not proportionate to the crime. Our justice system is broken, but its mission is the correct one. If you want psychotic assholes like this to be shut down, talk to your representatives about carefully defining a law that unprotects hate speech. Be careful, though: as we are seeing with ag gag laws, any restriction on free speech might be used against you by the wealthy and the powerful.

Sadly, I agree with Frank. The correct course of action would be to call the police on this psychotic asshole for committing “speech which incites violence”, which is NOT protected speech. Assaulting him may feel gratifying but it is a greatly disproportionate punishment in context to his actual crime. I am not defending him. I am defending a system of justice that acts proportionately. People really need to consider why we have a justice system. As broken as it is, the MISSION is correct. Don’t further dilute it by promoting violence in response to lesser offenses. Overly aggressive laws can be used against perfectly decent sane people, such as protestors trying to fight for justice for the rest of us.

Total side issue: "she never got back the $10k bail money that was raised from a supportive community by her ex-partner who posted it." Why is this even added to the story? Her ex posted bail, her ex gets it back when she shows up to court until her case is disposed. She's not being wronged by not getting the bail money. If there is any justice, her ex returns it to the supportive community members, if the donations were designated as being for bail (and not for legal expenses, or whatever). I agree the "brother" was spoiling for a fight and got one, though. I also agree it's not good for society to condone getting into a fight with someone just because they are asking for it.

I agree with him and the acts of violence commited against him for simply excercising his right to free speech are disgusting, as are the people who cheer it on. What's wrong with you people? 1416862431...8292ab.gif 1416862431803-5dd43d78292ab.gif

This man is not a true Christian for sure. As a Christian myself, I would know that a true Christian would never say stuff like this. At my church we help rape victims, prostitutes, drug addicts, women who are considering abortion, homeless citizens, and more! This is why Christians face so much backlash because of these so called, "Christians" hating on other people for no reason. This is disgusting and I hate it. This so called "Christian" had it coming for him and I am so happy that woman hit him in the head with a bat! I know it's wrong to be happy for others misfortune but I can't help it. This man is not a true Christian and real Christians don't hate on these types of people. We take them in and pray for them.

He asked for it, he got it. How would he like it if he got raped? And being male, guess how that would happen---

A Small Comment From: [Κοβάλτιο][Grandmaster of the Infinity Cult] HE WAS SUPPORTING “NON-HUMAN RIGHTS IDEAS” AND HE WAS BEING A TOTAL F**KHEAD! HE DEFINITELY DESERVED IT!!! BUT AS AN PRO-RESPECT LEADER WITH A NEUTRAL OUTLOOK OF MOST THINGS, I THINK THEY SHOULD HAVE JUST PUNCHED HIM IN HIS BALLS INSTEAD! SORRY FOR THE RANT; I’M A LITTLE PERSON AND I HATE ARGUMENTS AND FIGHTS LIKE THESE!!! THIS IS NOT MEANT TO OFFEND ANYONE!!

I wonder how long it will be before we see a news report of Brother Dean in a hotel with an under age man (undercover cop) soliciting sex? Seems like those with all this wild hatred for homosexuality are the ones hiring young men to carry their luggage or are found toe tapping the next stall in a public restroom. Just a matter of time...

Why is he spewing hate? He is not a preacher of goodness. He would understand "peace".

The man should be in jail. Women shouldn’t have to put up with this kind of discrimination while they’re going about their lawful business.

I think, these comments, Minnie the names be sent to our law makers because it sounds exactly like what some men say about rape and women who get raped. But,, he really must’ve been very proactively dressed, so he must’ve been asking for it! If he didn’t want it, he should moved faster or run. He could’ve prevented it!

He should’ve gotten hit more. I mean, what do you expect when you’re some asshole who is holding a sign that says ‘YOU DESERVE RAPE’. He deserves more than just a baseball bat. There’s a difference between ‘freedom of speech’ and ‘hate speech’.

They're both in the wrong, but imo it is a wash... after all we are all emotional creatures when confronted with something that we feels specifically targets us, and suggesting a crime be committed on a college campus that already has issues with said crime, that's like going to a trump rally promoting violence towards the media and some nut job later on acting on it..like...with...Bombs... oh wait... :/

loved reading this--while i don't advocate physical violence (unless it's self-defense), sometimes ya gotta wonder why people walk around with signs like that...if there ever was a case of someone "asking for it," this is definitely it!

What an awful way to make a statement about women being raped! Guys in prison are raped - do the prison clothes they have to wear incite rape? No. Rape is a way of domination.

CAPS ARE FOR PHYSICAL REASONS. AM NOT YELLING. SOMEONE SENT THE RELY, 'SLOW DOWN ON THE CRAZY PILLS." FOR A REPLY TO MY COMMENT. THE NOTICE WAS SENT ME BUT NOT THE WAY TO REPLY BACK SO AM TALKING TO MYSELF MORE OR LESS. I DIDN'T LIKE THE SIGN THAT MISCALLED CHRISTAIN HELD UP NOR THE ATTACK FROM BEHIND BUT SAID IT DID SERVE A PURPOSE. SOMEONE DIDN'T LIKE MY COMMENT SO CALLS ME CRAZY. I DON'T NEED PILLS TO ACHIEVE CRAZY. THIS PLANET AND THE CREATURES CALLED MANKIND ARE QUITE ENOUGH. BETWEEN SATAN AND THE EVIL AND THE GOOD PEOPLE WHO CREATE THIS HELL ON EARTH: A HELL DANTE COULDN'T IMAGINE AND HE TRIED. WE HAVE PEOPLE WHO CALL PEOPLE CRAZY WITHOUT EVEN KNOWING THEM FOR ONE. WE LIVE IN A WORLD WHERE LAWS ARE MADE LIKE YOU CAN'T MURDER SOMEONE AND THEN A SPECIAL LAW IS MADE TO LET A PRIVILEGED FEW KILL ALL THEY WANT AS IN WOMAN WHO is ALLOWED TO KILL BABIES INSTEAD OF USING THE BIRTH CONTROL THAT STOPS LIFE FROM BEGINNING. NOTICE THERE IS THE WORD CONTROL AFTER THE WORD BIRTH.

DOES THIS MEAN IT IS EASIER TO KILL BABIES THAN TO STOP LIFE FROM HAPPENING WITH THE BIRTH CONTROL? THEN THERE IS THIS MAN WHO WAS ATTACKED FROM BEHIND. A LOT OF OF SARCASM FROM PEOPLE WHO READ THE ARTICLE THAT MADE ME LAUGH BECAUSE IT SAID A LOT AND ALL TRUTH. THE MAN IS NOT OF GOD AND JESUS CHRIST. THE JESUS WHO SAID, "WHO IS WITHOUT SIN CAST THE FIRST STONE ETC", IS NOT GOING TO TELL SOMEONE THEY DESERVE TO BE RAPED. A GOOD MAN OR WOMAN WILL NOT TELL SOMEONE THEY DESERVE TO BE RAPED. IT DOESN'T MAKE ME CRAZY BECAUSE I LAUGHED AT THE SARCASM. IT MAKES ME A 70-YEAR-OLD WOMAN WHO HAS SEEN BABIES STOMPED TO DEATH ON THE BATTLEFIELD AND THE GROUND SO RED WITH BLOOD SHE STILL CAN'T SEE THAT COLOUR WITHOUT THE IMAGE OF DEATH AND MY LAUGHTER HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH MIRTH OR BEING FUNNY.

I think men harbor a fantasy of multiple women hitting him in the head with baseball bats when he's out in public. I mean don't all men? Women can hardly be expected to control themselves when he sends these mixed signals.

I’m disgusted that he would be allowed on ANY school campus and even more disgusted that this happened in Arizona. This is inciting violence and should not have been allowed because of it.

Sadly, I could not stop laughing at the comments. And sadly, he really did deserve this and so much more! Aren't Christians supposed to be like Jesus and be accepting of everyone? And non-judgemental? When I saw that sign I stood up so fast I knocked my chair over. Shocking! And a preacher??? Has he even read the New Testament??

Wtf ?? I think this guy took to much drugs.. that's the explanation for such a fucking stupid speech .. or we was looking for Baseball Bat on his face hahaha. But , people shouldn't be affected by his words .. we all know how crazy people are , I'm not complaining or criticizing , I was abused , and obviously it make angry when I see this post .. maybe If I saw him , I would hit him too ... but we can let words to affect us ..

Was he examined by a physician? That line of gore looks a little fake. The time I got hit with a tire iron (not by a woman) it was pretty gruesome in the literal meaning of that word.

Although I am a straight, white, Catholic male, and I do not agree with the Gay Pride, I think that this attack was totally provoked. This was incredibly stupid to hold that sign. However, she should not have hit him; he is obviously very troubled. :)

To call him a pastor is like saying all liberals are tolerant. He is far from being a Christian pastor. No woman deserves to be raped and no one deserves to be hit with a baseball bat.
