Insane Clown Posse March on Washington D.C. to Coincide with Pro-Trump Rally
Insane Clown Posse just can't catch a break. Their fans have already been targeted as a "gang" by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and their planned march in Washington D.C. is now going to have to compete with a rally in support of President Donald Trump.
The Juggalo March on Washington is scheduled to take place Sept. 16 beginning at noon. According to the band, "The Juggalo family will gather in the National Mall in Washington, D.C. to protest the FBI's labeling of Juggalos as a 'gang.' Following the march, a free concert featuring ICP, 2 Live Crew, Vanilla Ice and many more will take place throughout the night."
However, a major wrench has been thrown into those plans as the "Mother of All Rallies" will begin just an hour before on the same day.
"America First patriot rally in support of American values, American culture, American traditions and of course, President Donald Trump," reads a statement from the group, collectively known as MOAR. "Our goal is to rally one million patriots to Washington D.C. to send a shockwave message to the world that they have to go through us to take this country or change its culture. This is a not for profit event and all the credit goes to all the participating patriots and not particular individuals or groups. This is about America First. This is about protecting and supporting President Donald Trump, protecting our Constitution, and protecting our flag and all that it stands for."
When their fans were classified as "a loosely organized hybrid gang” in 2014, ICP sued both the FBI and the U.S. Justice Department. The lawsuit was dismissed but the group subsequently won an appeal and they continue to fight.
During the last year's annual Gathering of the Juggalos festival, ICP revealed plans for the march on Washington. According to the Detroit News, Violent J told the audience during a seminar discussion, “In 2017, the weekend of Sept. 17, we need you. We’re gonna do a [expletive] march on Washington. They call the Juggalo world a movement, right? Well, let’s move!” As for the march, J added, “We don’t know what’s going to happen. We could totally embarrass ourselves and there could be 25 people.”
According to the MOAR event page on Facebook, 1,600 people are going to the rally while nearly 5,000 are interested in attending. By way of comparison on the Juggalo March page, less than 100 people are going with about 150 interested.
It's not yet been made clear if the members of MOAR are also ICP fans or vice versa, but if they are, perhaps both rallies could unite for one big assembly that would rival, well, the strangest thing we may have ever seen.
