for appearing like that in public. :eyes:

2. Juggalos...sorry, I can't say anything relevant here. I can't help but laugh...
It's like a mass movement for suburban white attention whores

3. I prefer to think of them as fans of Halloween 365 days a year
Imagine the ICP organization's Christmas Party.
You know they have one

7. EXACTLY what it is. lol
Edited on Thu Nov-03-11 09:41 AM by OriginalGeek
I recently went to a Suicidal Tendencies show (because I never got to see them back in the day and I really like them and as long as Mike Muir was still in on it I could at least pretend it was a real ST show) but I didn't recognize the name of the opening band and knew nothing about them.

I was horrified to get to the club and find out they were a juggalo band. Juggalo clowns everyfuckingwhere.


The worst part is that in between the awful music the lead singer would go on long rants - AND I MOSTLY AGREED WITH HIM! It was terrible. lol. He would rant about the far right (which I love to do too) and he was talking a lot about "family" and sticking together but loving everyone and not trying to war on people with different opinions (probably that in a sense of self preservation - among other things I feel like juggalos carry around a huge persecution chip and it's not hard to see why) and there were several bi-racial couples and they were all getting along so I have to assume from my one limited engagement with them that at least my local juggalos are not down with racists.

And all that is very fine with me.

But gawd the music is so un-enjoyable. And the clown stuff is simply ridiculous. And they DO attention whore and then cry about being persecuted and then attention whore more and then cry more and it's all very exhausting.

If they had better music I would make room for them in my life but they don't.

oh and PS: Suicidal Tendencies (well, Mike Muir and his band) were fantastic.

12. From what I've read, anti-racism is part of their creed
Which is good

But they do love to play the persecution card - and they really aren't

They remind me of the Kevin character from Repo Man

"I-I blame society..."

"You're a white suburban punk, just like me..."

Glad ST was good :)

13. Man I need to find that movie on DVD
or blu-ray...Haven't seen it since it was released but I remember it being a great movie.

Lol, I'd wager it was where I first heard a Suicidal Tendencies song...I'm sure it was where I was first introduced to slam dancing

5. There are some living across the street from me.
If you're a Juggalo you are telling the world you are a white trash loser who will never make anything of himself of herself.

:banghead:

8. They'll be sorry when they're older
All that finger-snapping will come back to haunt them. Blown knuckles!

The snapping is rampant in middle schools around here. Among white students, of course.

9. LOL. My boyfriend and I were discussing withour neighbors their two year old child.
The subject of "how would you feel if he was gay" came up. The father said he would be perfectly fine with it but continued with "please god don't let him be a Jaggalo."

11. ICP claim to be christian
not sure how evangelical they are - I'm too far removed from my fundamentalist upbringing to remember all the rules they are breaking - lol...Fundamentalists would never approve of rock music and they doubly wouldn't approve of rap music and they TRIPLY wouldn't approve of mixing the two. (Yes, I'm calling fundamentalist christians racists. At least the ones I grew up with are and I haven't met very many since I escaped but they all espoused policies that where racist even if they were too afraid to admit it out loud).
And I 'm not saying evangelical = fundie but there is some overlap...

I've never seen a gathering of juggalos that didn't use alcohol (the one I was at and numerous clips on TV and the internet) and I know that's taboo for fundies but my Methodist cousins have no problem with it so I'm not sure where evangelical fits into that...now that I think about it, the church I grew up in did often criticize the Pentecostals for letting their women wear pants so maybe they (and evangelicals) are more liberal than fundies (if you can say liberal and evangelical in the same sentence without peeing yourself laughing).

15. I enjoy the gleeful boneheadedness of the Juggalos (they're Dum Dum Boys without the genius)
