Grandmaster Jay Explains NFAC's Military Formation In Support Of Breonna Taylor
Jul 23, 2020
(AllHipHop Features) Spectators might’ve noticed that when Black jogger Amaud Arbery was hunted and murdered by three white men, a group of armed military men emerged on the scene in response. There was no violence at that point despite Brunswick, GA being a hotbed for the KKK. When the NFAC re-emerged in Stone Mountain, Georgia on the Fourth of July, there was no violence. Again. In fact, at that time, the police officers yielded respect. Most large scale assemblies of people in protest have been chock full of discord, chaos, degrees of anarchy, and even total confusion.
One Grand Master Jay, the leader of the NFAC (Not F##king Around Coalition), has stepped to the forefront as an aggressive form of leadership that has not been prominent in recent memory. GMJ has managed to gain the attention of Black media, mainstream media, as well as masses of people in social media on a very surface level. However, all of that is insignificant to Grand Master Jay, who wants one thing for Black people: Liberation.
On Saturday, July 25th, the center of attention will be Breonna Taylor. Taylor was a 26-year-old African-American emergency medical tech that was fatally shot by Louisville Metro Police officers on March 13, 2020. She was in her own home when the officers burst in her home with a "no-knock" search warrant. She was hit at least eight time by officers Jonathan Mattingly, Brett Hankison, and Myles Cosgrove. Grandmaster Jay and the NFAC will convene another military formation in honor of Breonna Taylor to give the wheels of justice some much-needed oil.
The NFAC leader talks to Chuck "Jigsaw" Creekmur about what he hopes to accomplish, the response of local government officials, as well as activists leading protests on the scene. He is not here for the BS. He is here to protect and serve his people by any means necessary.
AllHipHop: Grandmaster Jay, how are you doing today, my brother?
Grandmaster Jay: Brother, I'm glad to be here. Glad to see you still see that you're still Black. Can't say that for too many others, but I'm glad to be here.
AllHipHop: Still Black, bro, it ain't gonna change. So I wanna I want to jump let's just jump right into it. I know you are a busy man I know that you have been on the frontlines in so many different ways, in thought as well as action. First things first, though, you have this this this formation coming in Louisville. In defense of Breonna Taylor. Can you tell our audience as well as others that may be watching from your words, why you are going there with your organization?
Grandmaster Jay: One word, frustration. We have sat back, and we have watched them (authorities) drag their feet (in the Breonna Taylor case). We have watched the lack of transparency as far as what's going on. We have watched other people go in and try to demonstrate and protest or raise awareness around the issue. We have watched the lack of information that has not come out from the powers to be that in that area, and then we have watched the city pretty much just dissolve into a place of chaos.
I've been to Louisville before, and I don't remember remembering seeing it like that. So that means that there must be a serious problem. We have watched everyone from sports figures to entertainment celebrities call for the arrest of the officers that hasn't happened. But most importantly, we have also watched what it appears to be a lack of a conversation by the rest of the world around the death of this young lady (Breonna Taylor).
When everyone else was in an uproar over George Floyd and for a brief while they were in an uproar over Ahmaud (Arbery), it seems like Miss Taylor was lost somewhere in the discussion. So we decided that we needed to send a stronger message, and that that message needed to be not only seen but felt. And that the potential for a new level of resistance that hasn't been seen in America in over 60 years, that they didn't think existed anymore, that they thought that they had eradicated from the public psyche, that that was not the case.
We have been we're not new. We've been coming for a minute. And now it would seem that it would be only logical for us to have our formation in Louisville and to open up a dialogue with the Attorney General. The governor As the mayor, the police chief, everyone else involved in finding out what exactly is going on. And what is the holdup and what appears to many people to be a cut and dry case of a police screw up. And that is why that's the motivation for us. descending as I've seen the newspapers call it upon this town when in actuality, just like any militia, we're holding a formation.
A new military group, the NFAC, has forced the hand of the KKK, which has terrorized Black people for generations.
Several hundred people, a mixture of men and women clad in black, descended on Stone Mountain, Georgia on the 4th of July, confronted a KKK stronghold in the suburb of Atlanta, demanded the removal of Confederate figures from a mountain, and eventually moved to protect the sister of Rayshard Brooks. Brooks was the man killed by police officers at an area-Wendy's last month.
The armed citizens, members of a group called The NFAC (The Not F#ckin' Around Coalition), are led by Grand Master Jay, a former military man that has emerged out of a dissatisfaction with past movements. The NFAC marched "in formation" peacefully in Stone Mountain, GA where confederate leaders are etched in a mountain. Eventually, the mass convened at a Ku Klux Klan haven that has been allegedly threatening Black people. The Klan was "re-born" at this location, Jay said at the scene
The mountain, which boasts the likeness Confederate icons Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee, and Stonewall Jackson, is historically a popular meeting place for the Ku Klux Klan and continues to be so, according to a report by The New York Times.
One of the NFAC members talked to AllHipHop under the guise of anonymity, stating that the time is now for Black people to protect their communities from the Klan and the police.
"They are doing all the killing (the police and the KKK). It's us that should be scared," he said. "They (the KKK) made the right decision for their family and friends (by staying home). They're bullies. We'd rather die on our feet that die with a knee on our neck for 9-minutes. I actually thought the KKK would show up" The Klan did not, but the police were there.
Contrary to many reports, the NFAC is not related to the Black Panthers or Black Lives Matter.
Eventually, the group traversed to Stone Mountain's Memorial Hall and spoke to those observing. The park had recently re-opened after being shut down because of Covid-19.
The news traveled quickly on social media and was picked up by some mainstream outlets as well.
The NFAC member told AllHipHop the police were respectful of their movement, but still maintained that their authority manifests differently when there are no guns.
"They'll kill a 7-year old girl, they'll kill a 12-year old boy, they'll kill an old man," he told AllHipHop. "We gotta get the cops out of our community. They don't respect us."
Those that simply witnessed the formation seemed to be impressed and inspired.
"I honestly haven't seen anything this beautiful before, I am in tears right now. I hope they show those Confederates exactly how serious they are about this bulls##t," one person said on social media.
All of the feedback was not positive. Some people, mostly white, expressed fear.
"What is this some terror group?" one person tweeted. Another questioned the legality of the movement, without noting white militia that has always existed in America. Armed men took to the Michigan Capitol in Lansing earlier this year and domestic terror has existed since the inception of the United States.
"We've been too nice," the NFAC member stated, citing that Black people are under attack from systemic racism on every level.
The KKK is a nationwide White terrorist organization America sanctioned in the 1800s to oppress AfAms. Many white preachers/priest, businessmen, judges, POLICE, military personal, and politicians are members. They just endorsed Trump and the Republicans. pic.twitter.com/LqgjQQfpRA

^5000The mainstream imperialist media lie CONSTANTLY. Literally 24/7. And it's getting worse.
All of them do it: radio, tv, the newspapers, the movies. The internet. No exceptions.
The corporate Big Lie is pervasive and totalitarian. CBS does it. NBC does it. ABC does it.
CNN does it. FOX does it. NPR does it. And of course the NYTimes and WaPo do it.
Thousands of "diverse" voices telling you the same lies. Enough to convince anyone.
