Send in the Clowns: Insane Clown Posse and Juggalos to March On Washington
Watch out Congress, you’re not the only clowns in Washington come this September. The Insane Clown Posse, Shaggy 2 Dope and Violent J, will be bringing their hordes of Faygo-crazed fans, the Juggalos, to Washington, DC to protest women’s rightsclimate changeracismgovernment corruptionnuclear proliferationforeign interference on our governmenttax hikesspecial interest groups the FBI’s classification of Juggalos as a "loosely organized hybrid gang.”
In case you forgot about this, according to the Juggalo March website, this FBI classification has had pretty terrible effects on “hundreds if not thousands of people,” who were subject to “discrimination, harassment, and profiling simply for identifying as a Juggalo.”
It continues: “Over the past five years, our legal team has heard testimonies and reports from Juggalos all over the nation who have lost custody of their children, been fired from jobs, denied access into the armed forces, and the most common consequence — being officially labeled as a gang member by law enforcement agencies for wearing Juggalo related clothing or brandishing one or more Juggalo tattoos.”
Honestly, if this is true, they should march. This is America, and if you want to dress like some sort of twisted clown or claim that you work at a “dark carnival,” that’s you’re right. You shouldn’t lose your job for having bad taste.
Also, it’s some actual bullshit if Jared Leto helps Suicide Squad win an Oscar for essentially the same thing.
