Not their first time trolling the WBC, although the previous occasion wasn't with disco...

The entire reason that members of the Westboro Baptist Church are there is to be assaulted, get pictures of those who assault them and then sue them. It's quite the scam.

Yeah, well fark Dave Grohl right in his HIV-denying face. He can burn in hell along with the Westboro Baptists.
 
2021-08-06 10:54:54 AM  
Westboro baptist is still a thing? Didnt their cult leader die?

HailRobonia: Yeah, well fark Dave Grohl right in his HIV-denying face. He can burn in hell along with the Westboro Baptists.


Way to stay current

Now in the band's defence, this was 2000 so they were young and dumb, not to mention that they were riding high on the momentum of a successful album release that included the banger "Learn To Fly" so it's no surprise that they went a little stupid during this period.
But whereas some famous celebs stubbornly cling to their beliefs no matter how ridiculous or harmful they are, the Foo Fighters have seemingly realised that maybe, just maybe, there's actually something in the whole HIV and AIDS thing.
They've stopped talking about the topic, erased any mention of Alive & Well from their site and have all but erased that period from their band history. Since then, the band have backed some actual good causes that includes autism research, poverty and breast cancer.
Hell, Dave even threw his support behind organisations that promote treatment, research and prevention of AIDS, like Elton John's AIDS Foundation. There's no way he'd do that if he truly believed that there's no link between HIV and AIDS.
 
2021-08-06 10:58:43 AM  
This is tough one. I hate the Westboro morons, but I also hate disco.
 
2021-08-06 10:59:03 AM  
Have people not learned yet that the WBC can't be trolled? People paying any kind of attention to them just makes them rock hard.

Fred died, and apparently had regrets about his legacy on his deathbed.

His psycho-nuts daughter is carrying on the mantle though. They're only a thing when people pay attention to them

The Westboro Baptist Church is one of the greatest gifts ever given to the gay rights movement. It took the "nice" mask off ant-gay religious practices and made everyone look at what they were doing.

If Grohl wants to actually protest folks who are doing serious harm to gay Americans, he should be doing this at Catholic churches, Mormon temples, the Southern Baptist convention, etc.
 
2021-08-06 11:05:07 AM  
I love him! Those crazy Westboro Baptist church people should shut the hell up and leave everyone alone. They are almost all one family of nuts.
 
2021-08-06 11:06:45 AM  

HailRobonia: Yeah, well fark Dave Grohl right in his HIV-denying face. He can burn in hell along with the Westboro Baptists.


No, see he apologized for it, after keeping that shiat on the FF website for a decade, so it's all good. I mean he invites fans on stage, so that brings dead kids back to life or something.

I'd like the Foo Fighters more if they did more stuff like this. That's actually pretty awesome.

Oh, I know. Thing is, though, it's clearly not working with Grohl and co. They just play music at them, which they can't exactly sue over.

Are they even still a thing? Seriously. In 2021, we're still going to give those assholes attention? For the love of God and all that is holy, why would we do something like that? They are garbage, blights on humanity, and they should only be ignored. fark each and every last one of them.

I'm not to keen on the Westboro Baptist Church either.

At the 2012 Reason Rally, while confronting one of those idiots, he called me grandpa when he realized I wasn't taking his BS. I was taken aback, for a second or two, then I laughed in his face. Everyone near started laughing. The look on his face was priceless. Had so much fun trolling those not wits.
 
2021-08-06 11:14:50 AM  
Ugh.  These pieces of shiat had fallen off the radar until Ted Lasso and now Dave Grohl gave them the attention they so desperately crave.  I get Lasso, it was a funny line, but come on Dave.  Ignore these assholes.

1 - Dave Grohl was 31 in 2000.  That's not ancient and wise, but it's solidly in the "adult responsible for their words" age range.  It was also his second time in a world-famous band so he'd first hand seen public response to statements made by rock stars.

2 - Yes, people can and do support causes they don't believe in just to look good in public.  Just look at the all of the flip-flopping businesses do during Pride month depending on which part of the world they are in.

3 - I love the Foo Fighters and Dave Grohl, but the fact that this is the first I've heard of this makes me assume this wasn't a central pillar of their band.  Like there wasn't a single called "AIDS is something other than HIV" or anything.  Which means I have no problem listening to their music as opposed to someone going full hypocrite.

Don't get me wrong, I found this article and holy farking shiat, what terrible people were running this charity?  I mean, that makes no farking sense.  How would the treatment for AIDS cause AIDS if treatment wasn't available for the first decade of the AIDS crisis?  Absolutely he should be berated for that on a regular basis.

SO He would be 38 or 39 when they finally took the info and links off the FF webpage in 2007 or 2008. More than 2 years after maggiores kid died from AIDS.

There's a grand canyon or two between being perpetually punished  and being given a freepass whitewash because you apologize.
