I feel like I've seen so many versions of this story, every year. Eventually, the Gathering will just be nothing but edgy journalists reporting (undercover!) on each other.

I have a few friends that are into the Juggalo thing. They're crass, generally not well educated, and kind of assholes, but they're nice enough people. I'm not going to drink Faygo or go to an ICP show with them, but they're better people than the average Alt Righter or biker gang member that I know.

overarching respect. Not once was I bumped into without an apology, or my feet treaded on.

Interesting.

They still bump their shoulder into her tits, but the apology is a nice touch.

tl:dr everyone was nice to each other and focused on getting high but here's my limp moral authority story about how they are all muddy or fat or something

I've hung out with a few juggalos. Dislike the music, but they tend to be pretty cool people. If they weren't juggalos they'd just be some other kind of white trash. But I feel safer around juggalos than some other groups of people. They tend to police their own behavior, which is pretty respectable. They have a kind of "family honor" among themselves and don't tolerate their friends and guests being treated poorly. They've always been very hospitable, even though I have no real interest in being one of them.

After leaving the venue and rejoining the usual Fremont Street crowd, I was reminded of my appearance. Met with jeers, we hit a few local bars. They served us, but the fellow bar goers weren't so friendly. Some opted to leave rather than sharing the bar with Juggalos.

I call bullshiat. There's no bar on Fremont that has patrons so discerning they would leave if a "Juggalo" showed up. They probably wouldn't even look up from their beer.

Maybe if she wandered into a PT's or a BJ's (of which there aren't any downtown) but even then.

The soda flying everywhere would be a deal-breaker for me even if I was interested in the music. Spending hours in a crowd soaked in sticky soda sounds awful.

Delving into the culture of Juggalos was edgy and interesting 10-15 years ago, back when they were at their peak of cultural influence and promoting a trashy clown culture of drug use, promiscuity and ignorance of how rainbows farking work.

But in 2018? Juggalos seem quaint and harmless compared to the actual Nazis and white supremacists we've got running around tearing down America. Making fun of them feels an awful lot like bullying now.

These assholes ruined Faygo for me.  I can never ask for it outside of Michigan without getting the side eye.

But between Juggalos, Nazis, and white supremacists, it's the Juggalos that the FBI seems most concerned with.

 Some of those stories are really interesting. This has to be I've of the most boring stories I've ever read.

I painted my face. Juggalos were nice. Didn't like the music. Went to a bar. Non juggalos were not nice. The end.

Antifa thugs are hiding under your bed.  Don't forget to check for them before you turn the lights off.

You're "buh-buh-but antifa" response to that comment isn't worthy of anything but a derpy reply.

Yeah, i haven't been a Vegas regular visitor in 20 years, but I'd think you would have to be a complete farkup to get kicked out of any bar on Fremont street.
