GQ Covers Juggalos and Trump Supporters Marching on Washington on the Same Day

GQ which has really shown nothing but hate for the Insane Clown Posse and Juggalos in the past is sorta kinda showing us the tiniest bit of love it’s looking like. That’s most likely because Juggalos will be marching on Washington DC at the same time as Trump supports in what is being called the Mother of All Rallies.” I have a feeling most of the ninjas working at GQ aren’t Trump supports themselves (purely speculation) but I’m not surprised they’re now showing a bit of love for a group they once hated simply because they feel they’ll be on the opposite spectrum of the alt-right at the march. They are hoping Juggalos will be an important part of the resistance against encroaching fascism.

We’ll have to wait to see how things turn out.

Props to Jack Moore.

Juggalos and Trump Supporters Are Marching on Washington on the Same Day

Thank god for the Juggalos.

In the wake of the horrific scene in Charlottesville, it feels like the nation is more on edge than it has been in a long time. The specter of white nationalism and a revitalized Nazi movement hang over our day-to-day lives, and the promise of more dangerous and disgusting assemblies, like the one in Virginia last weekend, is enough to leave anyone feeling shaken. So when I heard that Trump Supporters were planning a “Mother of All Rallies” in Washington, DC on September 16th, I started to get nervous. Now obviously all people who voted for Donald Trump aren’t white supremacists or Nazi sympathizers, BUT (and this is a big “but,” hence the all caps) anyone who wants to march on Washington in Donald Trump’s name after his comments defending white supremacists and Nazis is at the very least okay with the hate groups he’s defending.

Which brings me to the funny part of this story, which, I mean, thank God, because there has been a distinct lack of “funny” in politics for a while now. So it turns out the day that the MOAR is set to take place is the same day that a very different sort of march is set to take place. Yes, September 16th is also the day the Insane Clown Posse and their fans (aka Juggalos) plan to march on DC to protest their FBI classification as a “loosely organized hybrid gang.” Now I’ll admit to a certain ignorance about ICP and Juggalo culture, but I would have assumed that there would be a certain crossover between these two groups. But though there certainly are “Juggalos 4 Trump“, Insane Clown Posse themselves don’t seem like they would be.

Take for instance the song “Confederate Flag.” With the typical violent flourishes that ICP is famous for, Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope make it clear that white supremacists are not their thing.

I mean these lyrics are nothing if not clear on how the ICP feels about the type of people who gathered in Charlottesville:

“I SAY FUCK YOUR REBEL FLAG
Out here pretending like you ain’t offendin’ I SAY FUCK YOUR REBEL FLAG
You redneck judges with racist grudges
I SAY FUCK YOUR REBEL FLAG
If you gotta tattoo, I’m aimin’ at you
I SAY FUCK YOUR REBEL FLAG
You get punched in your faces reppin’ the racists”

So it looks like September 16th, might end up being just the latest in a long line of surreal moments that the last two years have brought us. Clowns vs. Racists. Washington, DC. It’s at times like these that I find myself thinking about string theory. I know, I know. Stay with me. If you believe in the concept of the multiverse, which more and more I do, it’s hard not to think about those alternate worlds right now. Like there’s probably some other universe out there where Jeb Bush or Hillary Clinton is president and the biggest controversy in politics is some cabinet member making an off-color joke or some anti-gay congressman being seen on Grindr or something, and everyone is still laughing at Juggalos for “Magnets, How do they work?” But no. We live in one of the weird universes. We live in the universe where a reality star is allowing the rise of Nazis and white supremacists, and where face-painted rappers the Insane Clown Posse might end up being an important part of the resistance against encroaching fascism.
