Re: “Hard to keep a good clown down

To Whomever Uses the Alias "Wigger Man",
You have made your point very clear. The simple fact of the matter is that though the music of the Insane Clown Posse does draw in undesirables, such as those involved in the stories that you have painstakenly googled and pasted here. Any medium with a violent or hateful exterior will draw in such a crowd. These men and women may identify themselves as "Juggalos", but for the wrong reasons.
The mainstream Juggalos are comprised of normal people. Some of these people hold a respectable place in their society, and others may be down on their luck. The problem with claiming to be a Juggalo is that there are no peramiters as to who can also claim that they, themselves, are also Juggalos. I'm sure that fans of the Beatles would not wish to be lumped together with the likes of Charlie Manson.
Likely, they never will. The upbeat pop lyrics of the Beatles leaves the average man with no compitent reason to believe that their music played any part in the life or choices of Mr. Manson. As for Charlie, he may say otherwise.
The sad truth is that these men and women who commit violent crimes in the name of "The Juggalo Family", would have commited these crimes even if they had never heard of the Insane Clown Posse, or any of the artists on Psychopathic Records.
During the interview, John Tarpley asked us what makes a "Good Juggalo". My response to him was that there is no defining aspect to a Good Juggalo. There are Juggalos, then there are those who misenterperet the lyrics and take them at face value. Those people, as Joseph Bruce himself has said, "... Were fucked up to start with, they would have done that shit anyway...".
I would dare say that you, Mr. Wigger Man, have enjoyed a slasher film in the past. I would even say that you got excited watching such a movie. Let me assume for a moment, if I may, that you are a normal, well adjusted person. After watching Jason Vorhees cleve a man in two with a machete, did you feel any more inclined to do the same? Did you suddenly develop an urge to kill and maim innocent teenagers by a lake?
Again, on the assumption that you are a well adjusted person, I would be very surprised if you answered "yes". If so, I would suggest that you seek professional help from a psychiatrist. Much the same as somebody that hears the lyrics of a rap song, and decides to paint their faces and mug random strangers in a park. Those people needed help long before they became involved with the Juggalos.
I, Myself, am a married father of three. I work a full time Job and I am in the process of putting my wife through college. I listen to Psychopathic artists almost daily, and I have yet to commit one single violent crime in my lifetime. I can gladly give you the contact information for several of my freinds who can say the same. I have freinds in the military, who are Juggalos. I have freinds that are college students, who are juggalos. I have freinds who work at a factory, and are juggalos.
I would never be as naive as to believe that I could change your mind, Mr. Wigger Man. I know that you will surely be waiting by your computer for a response such as this. You have probably already began googling your counter statement as you are reading this. I hope only to provide a fair and even view into the lives of Juggalos, and to counter your previous point.
In closing, I will stray from the main topic of this comment. I find the name, "Mr. Wigger Man" to be offensive. I am personally a white man, but the implications of the word "Wigger" offend me on a deep level. I hope, but do not expect, that you will stick to mocking the juggalos, and stray from racial slurs.
Thank You For Your Consideration,
Josh 'Payaso' Malcome

Re: “Hard to keep a good clown down

Thanks, John, for doing such a great job on this article. We are all really pleased with the outcome. You did, however, credit Neon for a quote that I actually said. We will let it slide this time. (P.s., love the "Not on your life, Ninja!")
