Live from Insane Clown Posse's Gathering of the Juggalos

Revenge of the losers! Or, what it's like at a four-day reunion of 'the most misunderstood people of all time'

Oh, and they are. Writes BridgesOutOfficial: "The only miracle is that this shit piece of video has over 3 million views . . . this is fucking illiterate poison, absolute trash lyrics. It's like if Vanilla Ice was slightly more gangster, overweight, and started a KISS cover band." Allshallfuckenperish is more succinct: "this song gave me cancer =*{"

Juggalo Deathcamp, a Boston-metal trio with an EP called You Look Like an Idiot and Your Girlfriend Is Fat, has 255 fans on Facebook. Meanwhile, "Miracles" has accumulated 2,403 views on YouTube just in the time it took me to write this section.

Violent J and Shaggy just stand back and watch. "When this shit is around us, this shit is mindblowing," Violent J says. "This shit is. A. Lot. For Us. To Take. Both of us are on medication for this shit. It's too overwhelming. This shit is—[long pause]—unreal! Everyday. Is Breathtaking. Every day, it's amazing—that Juggalos even exist! And we appreciate it. We don't control this. We're not the leaders of this. All we do is provide a soundtrack."

I like that you at least tried to keep your obvious bias out of it, but still I wish people would try to understand that we Juggalos are people, we do have feelings, and we aren't all idiot/illiterate wiggers.  Some Juggalos are indisputably what I just described, but most of us truly enjoy the meanings of the songs, the message that the Juggalo music community sends and the family-esque vibe one gets from a Juggalo concert or a Gathering.  I feel the same way about religion, just because some Muslims do crazy things doesn't mean that all the Muslim people in the world are crazy.  People just need to try to coexist.
