The photos and videos of a large group of armed black militia (NFAC) all clad in black and wearing field gear, in formation at Stone Mountain, Georgia, spread quickly across social media. Armed with a wide variety of AK-type rifles, AR-15 rifles and AR-15 pistols, various shotguns, and .22 rimfires they held a rally, while their leader, The Real Grand Master Jay, gave a call to action. He preached black power and action rather than words, while denigrating whites, and challenged white militias and the 3% movement saying, “Here we are in your house, and where are you?” As they marched off a passing motorist asked who they were. The Real Grand Master Jay replied they were not Black Lives Matter, they were Black Militia of the NFAC (Not F#@king Around Clan) and his worst nightmare and demanded reparations for what his ancestors had done to black people.

So, what does all this mean? There are number of important things to be learned. The first is The Real Grand Master Jay is able to get people to listen to his message, and more importantly to actively get out and follow him. This is especially noteworthy. He, and those with him, was able to assemble members from five different African-American gun clubs and unite them to make a show of force. Armed, and clad in similar black uniforms, some with body-armor plate carriers, tactical vests, spare-mag carriers, they appeared organized and put on a good show for social media. I have been saying for a long time, we are just waiting for leaders to emerge on both sides of the political spectrum. Not the typical political charlatan on television no one really cares about. Real leaders, at the grassroots level, who through their spoken word can successfully exhort common people to band together, and to follow them. When this happens, massive changes can happen in a very short time-frame.

The Real Grand Master Jay was able to utilize social media to his advantage to get his message out. This was the primary purpose of this exercise, to spread his message. By all accounts, it seems to have worked, and I would expect to see his movement grow and expand into other states. I would expect to see a growth of demonstrations like this in the future in various parts of the country. So, The Real Grand Master Jay is able to understand the value of social media and use it to his advantage to spread his message and gain followers.

What are some of the implications from this rally? It is further proof of the ongoing problems currently affecting our Republic. Along with the COVID-19 pandemic, riots, cities in turmoil, rise of open Marxists and communists pushing for revolution, anarchists, and the Black Lives Matter movement, we can now add militant black militia members to the mix. June 2020 saw the highest number of gun sales on record in the country. Many were first-time gun buyers. It is obvious that both sides of the political spectrum are arming.

If a group this large and well-armed wanted to, they could be a serious threat locally. Consider, law enforcement in the United States has never had to face even a squad-size threat of well-armed, equipped, trained and organized militia actively maneuvering on them. The short-term results would not be in local police’s favor. An organization this large, of true believers, if trained, equipped with communications and vehicles could cause serious problems if they so choose. At this event, they were basically peaceful with only some intimidation and demands for reparations. Basically, they were exercising their 1st and 2nd Amendment Rights. Those rights are for all Americans.

Unfortunately, their message is overtly racist. Anytime one group of people, ethnicity or race declares themselves superior to another or others, it is wrong. History is full of lessons on how things often turn out very badly. Examples to consider would be ethnic cleansing in the Balkans, the religious fighting between the Muslim Shia and Sunni in Iraq, the seven-plus million Ukrainians liquidated in Holodomor of Stalin’s forced famine of 1932-33, 1.5 million killed and expelled during the Armenian Genocide, and the list goes on. Also, never forget groups like this are often used as puppets by well-financed and powerful unseen organizations. Organizations that happen to have plans and an agenda of their own.

There is trouble brewing on the streets of America. Be very aware of this simple fact, and take action to be prepared for whatever might come. Have the discernment to look beyond mere face value of the things you see. Things are not always as they appear. Keep in mind, if a weaker country wanted to defeat the United States, it would make little sense to get in a war they are sure to lose. Why fight the United States if you can get Americans to fight Americans? Be aware, be prepared and watch your six.
