It's hard to believe but it is obvious that the policy adopted by the People's Republic of China to deal with the religion of Tibet is lifted right out of the Insane Clown Posse songbook.

Tibet's exiled spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, does not have a right to choose his successor any way he wants and must follow the historical and religious tradition of reincarnation, a Chinese official said Monday.

Despite the authoritative tone of that, the government of the People's Republic of China could hardly be called experts on the subject of Buddhism.

On the contrary, like the Insane Clown Posse, famous for bringing the message of God to their fans through the means of thuggery, the Chinese government is famous for it's persecution of Tibetans on religious grounds, the destruction of thousands of monasteries and the imprisonment and murder of monks and nuns and anyone else in Tibet who objects to their "enlightened" supervision.

What is the connection between the government of China and the Insane Clown Posse? Is there collaboration? Have the Insane Clown Posse been brought in as spiritual advisors to the Chinese Communist Party? It looks like it. The methods of these two entities are alarmingly similar.

"We must respect the historical institutions and religious rituals of Tibetan Buddhism," said Padma Choling, a Tibetan and a former soldier in the People's Liberation Army. "I am afraid it is not up to anyone whether to abolish the reincarnation institution or not."

Here's an example of the respect the government has already shown to Buddhism in Tibet.

There is lots more like it. Totally baffling and conflicting starkly with the PRC's stated aim of respecting Buddhism in Tibet.

But . . . it is a lot like the methods employed by the Insane Clown Posse whose modus operandi is probably best summed up by the title of their debut album, Carnival of Carnage.

Several journalists have commented on the apparent conflict between the group's sexualized and often violent lyrics and their stated spiritual message.[112][114] . . .

In an October 2010 article for The Guardian, Jon Ronson characterized the Insane Clown Posse as "evangelical Christians" who have "only been pretending to be brutal and sadistic to trick their fans into believing in God."

Is this analysis of the methods of the Insane Clown Posse the key to understanding the Chinese governments methods in Tibet? Could the government of the People's Republic of China be making common cause with Tibetan Buddhists, taking a leaf from the songbook of the Insane Clown Posse by means of "tough love"?

Fractured skulls, murder, wrecked monasteries, prison terms, the kidapping of the Panchen Lama and his replacement with a government appointed imposter and now the pièce de résistance, the Chinese government, the new insane clown posse, is telling the Dalai Lama what the policiy of his religion will be.

Hmm...not sure on this or that ICP are preaching about God but who knows. Considering they apparently got their "Joker card" albums and the idea for their career in a dream and then spent the past 20 years following through with that then I could see how there might be more to it than it first seems.

I remember listening to them and others on their Psychopathic Records family a lot in college thanks to some Juggalo friends of mine.
