Known for spreading hate speech “Brother” Dean Saxton of Glendale, Arizona was hit with the bat while he stood outside a school holding a “you deserve rape” sign and preaching anti-gay & anti-feminist rhetoric.
Saxton filmed his time standing on the street across from Apollo High School which he said he was “filming for court in case something happened” in a video published on YouTube saying: “The Bible says it’s not okay to be gay”.
As he spews his hate speech, various students and teachers approach him and denounce what he is saying, peacefully challenging him
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 hits Saxton off camera with what he reports as being a “baseball bat” off camera as some students cheer. Saxton starts walking away.
Tabitha Brubaker, 19, was arrested and charged with felony assault and marijuana possession after the attack.
After the attack, Saxton denied any responsibility for the attack or inciting any violence calling the student attacker an “LGBT monster”.
