The best signs from the 'Juggalo March' in Washington

Insane Clown Posse, Juggalos to march on Washington to fight gang distinction Juggalos set to march on Washington, DC on Saturday

Fans of the weird clown-makeup-clad rappers earned the gang designation in 2011 when they were listed in the National Gang Intelligence Center's National Gang Threat Assessment.

While some voiced support for the group, citing their right to freedom of speech, others poked fun at the group's appearance in good humor.

Juggalos are holding a mass march in Washington, D.C.to protest their designation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation as a gang.

Juggalos gather near the Lincoln Memorial for their protest march.

The pro-Trump rally, labeled the "Mother of All Rallies", has been billed as an opportunity for participants to "demand protection for traditional American culture while they express their love for the United States and the "America First" agenda", according to its website.

Some Twitter users who couldn't attend the rally tweeted their support for the Juggalo march.

Last year, a judge dismissed the Juggalos' case against the Justice Department, but several members, along with the American Civil Liberties Union in MI, are appealing to the US 6th Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati. To see more, visit WAMU 88.5.

As a rule of thumb, it is not big news when multiple political rallies overlap on the same weekend in the nation's capital, a prime setting for anyone trying to send a message to the people in power.

The move followed a string of crimes from arson to homicide that were committed by people who were identified as Juggalos over the previous five or six years.

The pro-Trump crowd, meanwhile, were assembled for a rally created to give the president a signal of their support as Trump struggles through the early months of his first term. Juggalos, in tandem with the American Civil Liberties Union, sued the government in 2014, claiming Juggalos' "constitutional rights to expression and association were violated" by the FBI's classification. "However, open source reporting suggests that a small number of Juggalos are forming more organized subsets and engaging in more gang-like criminal activity, such as felony assaults, thefts, robberies, and drug sales".

Juggalos marched to the Lincoln Memorial on Sunday, and it looks like they had that iconic Forrest Gump scene in mind.

The Juggalos won't be the only group marching Saturday on Washington.

Attendees of the Juggalo march shared stories of discrimination online.

Juggalos spray sticky-sweet, cheap soda on each other and sing along to the Posse's hip-hop lyrics, which sound like a profane, pornographic and violent Alfred E. Neuman took crystal meth and stole the microphone.

All of those things were triggered by a tattoo, a T-shirt, a auto sticker or a poster that had the Insane Clown posse name or logo. Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope take the stage in clown makeup and douse their fans with cheap Faygo-brand soda.

Fans are known for their esoteric behaviour, sometimes wearing clown make-up in homage to the band, as well as chains or tattoos featuring a silhouetted man running with a hatchet.
