VIDEO: Foo Fighters mock religious protestors in Missouri

The Foo Fighters had some fun before their gig at the Sprint Center in Kansas City on Friday.

Things actually started on August 30, when the headline-seeking nutjobs of the Westboro Baptist Church – famous for their hatred of many things under the guise of religion - called for a picket of the Foos show in KC, releasing a statement against the group that was widely carried by mainstream media.

Facing the nonsense head-on, the Foos turned the tables and played a special live performance for the wackos from Topeka, Kansas.

Playing live on a flatbed truck adorned with US flags and hay bales, the Foos stepped right out of their recent “Hot Buns” video - where they portrayed truckers who hit the showers together - Dave Grohl and co. played “Keep It Clean” to protesters gathered outside the arena, the ignorants clearly ignorant of who was actually performing for them.

Members of the hate group/cult, known for their protests at US military funerals and activist agenda against homosexuality, seemed to be enjoying the Foos in their trucker disguises, with some captured on video bopping along to the song.

“Ladies and gentlemen,” declared trucker Grohl, “God Bless America! Land of the free, home of the brave. 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.”

“It takes all kinds,
” continued Dave. “Men loving women and women loving men, men loving men....and women loving women – hell, you know we all like to watch that. What I’d like to say is God Bless America, y’all!”

The Foos released their own footage of the event, and you have to watch the ignorance of one of the protesters: at approx. 4:41, while holding signs that read “Thank God For Dead Soldiers,” “Soldiers Die 4 Fag Marriage,” and “Christians Caused Fag Marriage,” one of the hateful hillbillies is actually captured on tape saying, “I love that song.”
