Protest Of The Day:  Foo Fighters

There is something about seeing deserving people finally get what is coming to them and made to look stupid that just puts me in a good mood. Sure, it might be a harsh, but it puts a smile on my face regardless, especially on a Monday. Even more so when the trollers are none other than the Foo Fighters and their victims are the "oh-my-God-I-can't-believe-you-actually-exist" bigots of the Westboro Baptist Church.

Recently, the totally reasonable members of the "Church" called for a picket of a Foo Fighters concert in Kansas City, obviously to stop Dave Grohl and the boys from incurring the wrath of God by playing "Everlong" one more time. But not being ones to stand for bigotry and racism, the Fighters decided to do something that they have been good at for years: getting dressed up in ridiculous costumes, making some people laugh, and kicking out a jam. The song, "Keep It Clean," is a bluegrass praise of love for all mankind, regardless of sexual preference, race, or religion. "Driving all night, I got a hankering for something / I think I'm in the mood for some hot man muffin," Grohl sings to an excited group of on-lookers and a confused bunch of racists. I wonder if the "Church" keeps on protesting Foo Fighter shows, the boys will just end up putting out a country album about loving everyone all the time. At least that way something good will come out of having these ignorant and intolerant people around. Check out the video below.
