Juggalos march on Washington to clash with pro-Trump rally

When Insane Clown Posse fans march on Washington next month as part of their long running campaign to have themselves removed from the FBI’s list of active gangs, they will be sharing the city’s National Mall with a pro-Donald Trump rally being supported by right wing political groups, which is due to take place the same day.

As previously reported, ICP fans, known as Juggalos, were added to a list of criminal gangs in the FBI’s 2011 National Gang Threat document, and have remained there ever since. To date, attempts to have them removed, including via legal action, have been unsuccessful. To that end, the hip hop duo announced last year the plan to march on Washington on 16 Sep. The protest has its own website at juggalomarch.com.

But MetalSucks noticed earlier this week that, on the same day, another protest is planned, albeit at the other end of the National Mall. Called the Mother Of All Rallies, the other event has been organised by right wing YouTuber Tommy Gunn and declares that protestors at the event will “demand protection for traditional American culture while they express their love for the United States and the America First agenda”.

It’s not clear if the “traditional American culture” that the Mother Of All Rallies seeks to defend includes the Insane Clown Posse. Probably not. Which means protestors on the National Mall that day will have to pick a gang to shout for. Not that ICP fans are a gang of course. We cannot stress that enough.
