A number of videos are circulating on social media showing a heavily armed “Black Militia” swarming Stone Mountain Park in Georgia.
As many as 200 African-Americans in military-style uniforms rallied on Independence Day, claiming to be part of a group known as the NFAC, an acronym for “Not F**king Around Coalition.”
According to the group’s founder, who goes by the title Grand Master Jay, the militia is made up of “very disciplined,” ex-military who do not want to talk or negotiate.
“The solution is very simple,” Grand Master Jay said in a video uploaded to Twitter. “We follow a declaration of liberation, declaring every African-American descended of slavery a political prisoner here in the United States, and that was affected by the Portuguese slave trade, and then, after that, the United States have the choice: Either carve us a piece of land out here. We’ll take Texas and let us do our own thing, or don’t stop us when we… go somewhere where they will give us our own land to build our own nation.
He continued: “I’m the official Grand Master Jay, I created the NFAC… We’re all ex-military. We’re all very disciplined. We’re all expert shooters. We don’t want to talk no more. We don’t want to negotiate. We don’t want to sing songs. We don’t bring signs to a gunfight. We’re an eye for an eye organisation. So, when they decide to act right, we’ll decide to act right and we do it all legally. Just like they do.”
Video also shows some of the militia threatening motorists caught in the chaos.
“What the f*ck you laughing at?” one of the gunmen is heard saying to a white motorist. “I’m your worst nightmare, bro… Where’s our reparations?”
The group’s founder can also be seen leading his militia in a chant: “We are not f**king around no more. Black power. Black people. Black man. Black woman. Black child. Black nation. NFAC!”
Columnist Todd Starnes rightly notes that if the group were white instead of black, the incident would have had non-stop media coverage. So far, however, there has been none.
“Democrats would have accused the whites of trying to start a Civil War,” Starnes said.
The reason for the media blackout is that it doesn’t fit their narrative. Starnes pointed to the nationwide coverage of the white couple in St Louis last week who were filmed protecting their home from a threatening mob.
“Instead of being saluted, they were subjected to a political lynch mob,” Starnes added, “not because they were law-abiding gun owners, but because of their skin color.”
