Foo Fighters Silence Westboro Baptist Church

Foo Fighters: Westboro Baptist Church Counter-Protest With 'Keep It Clean' (Hot Buns) - Huffington Post 9/18/11

I've never been a huge an of the Foo Fighters over the years. They definitely have had a few good songs and seem to put on a good show, but this is a pretty awesome show of patriotism. The infamous Westboro Baptist Cult was on hand to protest the group's concert in Kansas City, MO, but the Foo Fighters stole the spotlight by showing up on the back of a flat-bed truck hours before their show to counter-protest the anti-gay hate group with a song of solidarity, of acceptance. The band and their fans quickly drowned out the hateful slurs tossed by the church's minions and put them in their place. Dave Grohl, lead singer, spoke words that should ring true to all Americans,

"God Bless America! It takes all kinds; I don't care if you're black or white or purple or green, whether you're Pennsylvanian or Transylvanian, Lady Gaga or Lady Antebellum. Men loving women and women loving men and men loving men and women loving women -- you all know we like to watch that. But what I'd like to say is, God Bless America, y'all!"

Well done, Foo Fighters. Hats of to you for a classy act and a fucking awesome statement.
