Is the Westboro Baptist Church finally running out of things to protest?

WBC will picket “Price Is Right” host Drew Carey’s June 16 stand-up comedy performance at Comedy Works South in Greenwood Village, according to an email obtained by Reverb today.

Among the claims in the email:

“Carey is a hater of Biblical proportions!”

“If [Carey] had any love for anyone, he wouldn’t be pushing you down the path to Hell with both of his grubby hands.”

“GOD HATES F*G-ENABLING, GOD-HATING, LYING PERVERT DREW CAREY”

Carey’s Saturday night set takes place during Denver PrideFest 2012, though Comedy Works spokesperson Mel Gibson maintains that the two events are unrelated.

“It just happened to be the weekend Drew was available,” said Gibson.

On Tuesday, Carey tweeted a link to the Westboro Baptist Church Picket Schedule.

 

The schedule notes that WBC will also picket Day 2 of PrideFest in Denver’s Civic Center.

Here’s the intro from “The Drew Carey Show,” which is really what WBC should have protested circa 1995.

    I wonder if those inbred morons realize they’re just giving him free material for his act?

    Say what you will about this group, they have the idiot media eating out of their hands. How many other protest groups get their protests announced on the front page? And while the majority shake their heads at these protestors, the media profits by spreading their message.

    This is exactly the same thing that Marilyn Manson did by wiping his behind on the Bible and the American flag. It’s brilliant in the cynical manipulation of the issues, the media, and the audience. Absolutely brilliant. Claiming that God hates anyone is a master-stroke!

    When we stop giving these people the spotlight and the microphone, they will stop acting like children. Not before.

    Oh, for Pete’s sake! Westboro never even protests anymore! They never leave Topeka. They send out blast faxes announcing a protest, get people fired up, and then never show. Seriously. Just ignore them.
    I think old Fred’s probably in bad shape, and that bunch will crawl back under a rock the week Fred faces his Maker.
    I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!

    So what did Drew Carey do exactly to enrage these guys? Carey is pretty innocuous compared to any number of Hollywood celebs out there.
