Hate preacher carrying ‘you deserve to be raped’ sign hit over head with baseball bat (VIDEO)
“Brother” Dean Saxton, who has made a habit of standing outside schools in Glendale, condemned students standing across the street at Apollo High School when a 19-year-old woman reportedly hit the preacher over the head with a baseball bat, according to ABC15.

“The Bible says it’s not okay to be gay,” Saxan shouted prior to the assault. “You need to stop doing naughty, nasty things, Apollo High School. You need to stop looking up naughty, nasty things on the internet!”
While filming himself giving a 15-minute lecture through a megaphone, the extremist preacher was approached by students and teachers sporadically telling him to leave the premises.
“I’m trying to influence the fact that you need to be gone,” a teacher said. “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?” the teacher continued, referring to another extremist organization which often pickets military funerals.
While the camera was still rolling, another man attempted to tell Saxton to leave when he was hit over the head.
The person behind the attack was teenager Tabitha Brubaker, who has now been charged with assault. Although out of the frame during the incident, the sound of the bat hitting his head can be clearly heard.

Hit Him Harder.
The crowd of onlookers cheered and clapped after Saxon was hit, and the preacher eventually walked away from the scene with a bleeding wound to the head.
The latest incident is not the first time the controversial preacher has hit headlines. In an interview with Vice in 2014, he said women who wore yoga pants or dressed “provocatively” were to be blamed if raped.
