Foo Fighters

Turning the Tables On

The Westboro Baptist Church

The Westboro Baptist Church came out to protest a Foo Fighters concert last night -- but the band was ready ... and came out to play an impromptu show just for them.

The Foo Fighters came out dressed in costumes and played a few songs -- from the back of a flatbed truck -- that mocked their ultra-conservative views.

As the old saying goes ... what's good for the bigot, is good for the gander.

Ultra Conservative views???? maybe TMZ should do their homework. Rev. Phelps, the leader of WBC, is a REGISTERED DEMOCRAT that has ran for public office on the Democrat ticket. Get your facts straight TMZ. Conservatives don't hate gays. Homophobe*****e gays regardless of political ideals.

I was thinking about what Dave said at the VMAs how rock was still "Out There". LMFAO, I remember when rock was "Alive" like Frankenstines monster, and these types of Christian groups were more focused on derailing Ozzy, Kiss, and Alice Cooper. What a joke.

Fred Phelps has run for various offices as a DEMOCRAT. The last time I checked,that does not make him "ultra conservative". Get your story right TMV.

Conservatism is about individualism, not about communal activity, not about group think and not about placing people into nifty categories so they can get trashed or entitled. Before your are quick to call people ultra-conservative because (supposedly) God is somewhere in their sick equation, think it through a little.

They mocked the anti-America ultra-liberal views of Phelps.

"ultra-conservative"?

Love ya TMZ, but ya gotta cut out the random hate.

Calling the WBC "ultra-conservative" is like calling Charles Manson "ultra-liberal" just so you can stick it to liberals.
