Rap duo Insane Clown Posse has announced it plans to sue the FBI for including the group’s Faygo-drinking fans, knows as “Juggalos,” in the agency’s 2011 National Gang Threat Assessment. Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope announced the legal action before fans yesterday at the 2012 Gathering of the Juggalos at Cave-in-Rock, Ill.
We got a huge announcment to make at 3PM Friday from the ICP seminar. Its probably the biggest announcment of our career. Yes we're nervious

This Romney/Ryan stuff just isn't newsworthy in a world where the Insane Clown Posse is possibly suing the F.B.I.

The group also launched a website, JuggalosFightBack.com, to collect stories of discrimination against fans. “If you or someone you know have suffered any negative consequence with a governmental representative, including law enforcement, border patrol, airline security, or other local, state or federal governmental agency or employee as a result of your status as a Juggalo, we want to know about it,” reads the site. One fan claims ICP fandom cost him custody of his son.

This CIA targeting of the Insane Clown Posse is another sad example of prejudice against the Christian right.
