Radiohead received an ugly reception this weekend in Kansas City, Missouri, when the anti-gay group from the Topeka, Kansas Westboro Baptist Church who referred to Radiohead as “freak monkeys with mediocre tunes” who “keep you busy and focused by lightness,” appeared in front of the venue. As pointed out by Radiohead At Ease, the group of protesters issued a mandate on their website justifying the protest, a screed that read:

You try to get the people to look at the nonsense and not at the wrath of God that abides upon them. “Look at the circus monkey over there and the fluffy setting, blah, blah…” Meanwhile, God is undoing this nation and effecting all of your lives, with the moth that quietly eats the very fabric of your national garment. Radiohead is just such an event.”
