I have no issues with a well organized militia. As a matter of fact I think they are extremely important to all cities, to stand and protect local citizens when times of discord or distress come knocking at your door. We saw, in our little town how quickly our local militia organized and stood their ground in front of local businesses when a possible threat of violence was headed our way June 1st, 2020. We saw the violence erupt only a conversation away in Spokane, Wa. and our locals were ready to protect the peaceful protestors as well as local businesses that might have fallen victim to outsiders intent on destroying property. Quite frankly, this event was something we, as locals have never experienced before. There was no antagonism towards Black people, no agitation to start a fight, just a large group of armed men and women standing to protect our community against those who wished us harm. You can read about it here.
What I do have a problem with, are those who arm themselves en masse without the intent to protect but to call for violence using intimidation tactics, a show of force not for the good or protection of the community, but to further a political agenda. THIS is exactly what happened, July 4th, in Stone Mountain Park,15 miles east of Atlanta, Georgia when a large group of several hundred heavily armed Black men "peacefully" protested in the park. The leader and founder of this group named, "Not F**king Around Coalition" or to avoid having to say such nasty expletives, acronymed to NFAC, is a man, known by the moniker, Grand Master Jay. And the reason they protested that day? They want to demolish the massive stone carving on Stone Mountain, the largest bas-relief artwork in the world. WHY? Well, because the images of Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee, and Stonewall Jackson carved into the side of a mountain is, well, offensive to some. So is Auschwitz but the Jewish community didn't demand that place be destroyed...no quite the contrary, they wanted people to see it, to visit so that they would remember the horrors that happened there. But here, on this mountain, the offended Black people don't want to put the blame on the Southern Democrats who actually led the charge to secede from the Union and establish the Confederate States and created these statues. Absolutely NOT, just expunge all of that nasty, racist history so that none will be the wiser as to who the real racists were! But this is not really what this group is all about. Not even close.
Ok, so go ahead with your peaceful protest, it's your constitutional right after all. But who was really keeping the "peace" and did Mr. Grand Master, Jay really only have a peaceful protest on his mind that day? It seems that he brought his band of Black Militants to march through Stone Mountain park to instigate a fight as his group frequently stopped to shout out disparaging remarks challenging White, Conservative, 2nd Amendment proponents; "Stop hiding...I don't see no white militia, the boogie [boogaloo] boys, the three percenters and all the rest of these scared-ass rednecks. We here, where the f**k you at? We're in your house," Obviously, the ONLY reason that this "protest" stayed "peaceful" is simply because those 2nd amendment, Conservative, White folks didn't take the bait. I have absolutely no doubt in my mind that Mr. Master was all about a fight that day. Those are pretty much fighting words. He wasn't there with his well armed band of marauders to seek peace, that much is obvious!
But really, who is this Grand Master Jay? Here is a closer look. So is a Grand Master the antithesis of Grand Wizard? Someone who hates White people? Or are we talking Chess here with black and white pieces? Master Jay claims that his militant group is comprised of ex-military Black people who are "very disciplined" and "expert shooters." So, was this All Black Militant group formed to patrol the streets of violents cities like Chicago, Detroit, LA or Baltimore to protect innocent Blacks from being murdered by their own? Certainly not by the death count of innocent people over the last 30 days. Is their goal to rid our country of "racist" monuments? Or is it something much more insidious? Let's just listen in for a moment to Master Jay explaining why he formed this Militant group. Oh, and I must called it a militant group because these people have absolutely NO desire to protect the American way of life...NOT one iota of concern to safeguard American citizens ability to pursue life, liberty and happiness as American citizens, regardless of color, to protect our constitution...nope it's not that at all.
Alright then...Mr. Master Jay wants to form a "New Black Nation." in our United States. Boy doesn't that sound familiar. The Confederates wanted to do the exact same thing. So he believes that "every African American in the United States that is a descendant of slavery is a, political prisoner." And he wants the Unites States of America to give him the State of Texas! How do all ya'll Texans feel about that? Oh and that's how you say it; "all ya'll" my husband is a Texan, he knows. Ok, so last I heard Black people are free to travel and have been free to travel, well, since the North won their independence from being slaves of the Southern Democrats! This long overdue freedom was passed by Congress on January 31, 1865, and ratified on December 6, 1865, the 13th amendment abolished slavery in the United States. Let us not forget this freedom didn't come without a price; hundreds of thousands of white soldiers died and roughly 40,000 black soldiers died fighting to abolish slavery. For WHAT? For this? For this black man to form an EXTREME Alt-Left militant group to demand their own nation in OUR country? And to use intimidation by claiming that they are all "ex-military" and all "expert shooters" just adds to guerilla type warfare mentality they are using to claim what is not theirs to take. If Master Jay feels that Black people who are descendants of slaves are being held here against their will, I for one will offer a reparation in the form of a plane ticket back to AFRICA where they can then deal with the descendants of those black people who actually were responsible for selling them into slavery! Please let's not allow that extremely important piece of history be forgotten!!!! African Blacks sold THEIR OWN PEOPLE INTO SLAVERY!
If reparations and land is what you seek, then seek it from those wealthy Africans who sold you into slavery or from the Southern Democrats that bought you as slaves, not the descendants of those who fought a LONG and bloody war so that you could be free people! What a disgrace you are to all those dead soldiers who gave their lives for YOUR ancestors freedom! I didn't read in our history books about those from Africa coming here to undo the wrong they did and fight for your freedom. No, not even, why would they, as Africa holds the title for being the continent that has the HIGHEST RATE OF MODERN DAY SLAVERY! Perhaps your beef should be with Muslims as well.
"...the United States has a choice either carve us a piece of land out here, we will take Texas, and let us do our own thing or don't stop us when we exit this body here and go somewhere where they will give us our own land to build our own nation."~Grand Master Jay
Let's be very clear here Master Jay, I for one will provide a ONE WAY ticket back to your ancestral country and this will be accompanied by much pomp and circumstance from the press. No one is going to stop you and your group from leaving this country. I have a strong feeling that many of my readers would also do the same and then you can DEMAND from whatever country in Africa you see fit, a piece of your ancestral land to be given to you and your group of disgruntled Black people who feel that they are being held in MY COUNTRY as "political prisoners." My father's parents came to the US from Italy in the early 1900 and my Mother's from France and all immigrated to the Northern part of the United States, So I owe you nothing! None of us Americans owe you anything except perhaps those who fought a bloody war to keep you enslaved, their name is, DEMOCRAT or those wealthy Black men from the African Continent who sold your ancestors into slavery all over this world! Take you grievances and your demands to them! And really, I think I speak for many Americans, Black and White when I say; GET THE HELL OUT!
Oh and one last thing, according to the Census Office on June 1, 1900, the population of the United States was 76,212,168, and 8.8 million were Black folks. In 1860, the black population was 4.4 million. YOU DID NOT BUILD THIS COUNTRY no matter how many times you claim you did! It was built with the blood, sweat and tears of Immigrants mostly White immigrants. The Black slaves built wealth for the rich Democrats. You just can't expunge that history no matter how hard you try...the Truth will always be the truth. Point your anger where it belongs.
