Juggalos gather in Washington to protest against Federal Bureau of Investigation

Juggalos gather in Washington to protest against Federal Bureau of Investigation

Juggalos gather near the Lincoln Memorial for their protest march.

For the uninitiated, the name Juggalos comes from an ICP song, "The Juggla" and refers to anyone who is a rabid fan of the Detroit-based duo known for the violent or offensive imagery in its songs, which its fans seem to understand is more for comic effect than anything else.

"The Juggalo Family must truly shine and show America and the world that we are not a gang, public menace, cult, or any of the other untrue labels they have attempted to slap on us throughout the years".

"We take a look at all the information associated with the groups that are coming in", he said. "We identify with this music because it literally saved our lives in one form or another".

The pro-Trump organizer said, "It's your right to say whatever you believe, and it's their (the crowd's) right to let you know what they think about what you're saying". She said she had been profiled by police in OH because of the gang designation.

There's also Shawn Wolf, who says he never got custody of one of his kids because of the posters, T-shirts and vehicle stickers a social worker saw during a home visit in Arizona. Hatchetman is a Juggalo symbol showing the silhouette of a man holding a hatchet, and it's popular on shirts and as tattoos.

In that space of American protest, where war veterans and Martin Luther King Jr. and suffragists gave rise to their voices, the Insane Clown Posse will march for the rights of their followers: the Juggalos.

"People were telling them that they were losing custody of their kids, they couldn't get housing, they were being dishonorably discharged from the military", said Farris Haddad, their attorney (and a Juggalo since he was 12). "What happens to Justin b-- boy Bieber's Beliebers?"

The fans of the group, nicknamed Juggalos, are holding a march and concert on the National Mall to protest a 2011 Federal Bureau of Investigation report that classified fans of the group as a "loosely-organized hybrid gang".

The fanatic fans are "forming more organized subsets and engaging in more gang-like criminal activity".

Insane Clown Posse will be performing in Easton next month.

As the somewhat-official Juggalo drink, organizers were naturally prepared for the march with stacks of Faygo. On the National Mall, supporters of President Donald Trump gathered for a "Mother of all Rallies". Their website said they'll "demand protection for traditional American culture".

A day of competing protests in Washington unexpectedly included a group of Black Lives Matter activists who appeared near the stage of a rally meant to support President Donald Trump.

Afterward, the Black Lives Matters protesters left the stage peacefully, without any violence resulting from what wound up being a peaceful day overall.

Organizers of the MOAR event say the objective of their demonstration, which is being promoted as the "Woodstock of American Rallies", seeks to champion President Donald Trump's "America First" agenda.
