A Pro-Trump Rally and a March by Juggalos is Scheduled for the Same Day in DC. This Will Be Interesting.

September 16 is going to be an interesting day in Washington DC. Frankly, I kinda undersold that. Badly.

First, we have The Mother of All Rallies, a march planned by a pro-Trump group, which it will use to send “a message to congress the media and the world” that “we stand united to defend American culture & values.”

Fine. Godspeed. But September 16 is also the day of the Juggalo March, which will feature an untold number of Insane Clown Posse fans. Their message goal is to “bring national attention to the ongoing discrimination and profiling that Juggalos continue to be subjected to following the group’s inclusion in the U.S. Department of Justice’s 2011 National Gang Task Force report.”

Thousands of Trumpites and thousands of Juggalos, both headed for the National Mall. Will they clash or mix?

It’s not inconceivable that many Juggalos are sympathetic (at least to some degree) with Trump’s policies. Or maybe not. Or maybe they’ll all sit down for a picnic with plenty of Faygo for all.

Whatever the case, it’s going to be a weird day in ‘Murcia’s capital.
