Grand Master Jay says 1,000 but we counted more like 200 heavily armed militia, all of whom were Black, and about 35% very overweight marched through Georgia’s Stone Mountain Park on Independence Day, challenging white nationalist groups and any white they happened across in the area to either come out and fight or join them in protests, chants and demonstrations against “the government”.
Stone Mountain State Park officials said the Black militia group was peaceful, orderly and escorted by police Saturday as they called for the removal of the country’s largest Confederate monument near Atlanta. Videos posted to social media show the group, the “Not F**king Around Coalition” (NFAC), meeting at the massive nine-story quartz sculpting that depicts Confederate president Jefferson Davis and Southern generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson.
NFAC Founder Grand Master Jay told Newsweek via phone Sunday that the militia members at Stone Mountain on Saturday were “100 percent black” and they are not affiliated with Black Lives Matter. “We are a black militia. We aren’t protesters, we aren’t demonstrators. We don’t come to sing, we don’t come to chant. That’s not what we do,” he said.
The NFAC head explained why several videos show the militia members alongside demonstrators earlier in the day before heading to Stone Mountain. Grand Master Jay told Newsweek the sister of Rashard Brooks, who was killed outside an Atlanta Wendy’s by police last month, requested the NFAC militia provide her with a security escort to a downtown protest which began at the site of her brother’s death.
“Our initial goal was to have a formation of our militia in Stone Mountain to send a message that as long as you’re abolishing all these statues across the country, what about this one?” Grand Master Jay said, referencing the massive Confederate carving.
He added that he must commend Stone Mountain police for offering the all-black militia support as they exercised their constitutional rights on July 4th.
“It was all black … there were no brown people, no white people… everyone was black. I am not a protester, I am the commanding general of my militia, we were swearing in new members,” he added, highlighting there was a second militia “show of force” planned next Saturday near Phoenix.
It is this observers opinion that it’s a sad state of affairs when you have what more resembles a Boko Haram unit, or possibly more appropriately an African drug lord hit squad from the Congo (given the obesity of course) roaming the streets of America attempting to “dictate” anything.
What is also noted by this observer is that all of the guns and gear appear totally brand new. One has to wonder where all that funding comes from at a time of lockdowns and layoffs.
This clearly isn’t 1st Amendment anything, this is blatant terrorism and should be met with the same force as anywhere else in the world.
