The “Not F****** Around Coalition” militia appeared in force at Saturday’s Kentucky Derby in Churchill Downs, marching while heavily armed on the horse race.

The leader of the armed militia, who styles himself as “Grand Master Jay” (real name John Fitzgerald Johnson), appeared to threaten those who were present at the contest, although in-person attendance of the race is cancelled due to coronavirus.
“When they start the race, ain’t nobody going to be enjoying themselves,” Johnson said. “You see, they’re looking at us right now. They really don’t give a damn about no race. Louisville, y’all brought this on yourself.”

Grandmaster Jay ordered his militia members not to carry their long guns with a round chambered. This comes after a man marching with the NFAC accidentally shot three other militia members in a negligent discharge accident.
The Louisville incident almost appears to suggest that the militia, which has previously marched upon Stone Mountain in Georgia, is more of a danger to its own members than the general public.
The Grand Master himself, supposedly an “expert shooter,” demonstrated a pitiful knowledge of firearms in a July video, referring to an AR-style rifle as a “bullpup” and claiming that the rifle would fire merely by closing the bolt of the weapon with loaded magazine.
The NFAC has made a set of political demands pertaining to the shooting of Breonna Taylor, a Louisville woman who was shot and killed by police in a hotly controversial incident. The shooting of Taylor remains under investigation by the Kentucky Attorney General, but that hasn’t stopped the NFAC from making demands of immediate prosecution in the case.
The group has also endorsed the notion of black secession from the United States, demanding that the Union cede territory in order to create what the so-called Grand Master refers to as a “new black nation.”
Tulsi Gabbard Condemns Domestic Terrorism Bill as Potentially Targeting Run-of-the-Mill Trump Supporters and Right-Wingers
The ex-House member is speaking out against members of her own party.
Former presidential candidate and ex-representative Tulsi Gabbard is speaking out against a Democrat-introduced bill to combat “domestic terrorism.” She warns that it might be used to label everyday Christian conservatives and other right-wingers as “extremists” who ought to be monitored.
Speaking with Brian Kilmeade on “Fox News Primetime” Friday evening, Gabbard criticized the bill introduced by Democratic representative Brad Schneider (IL-10). Officially known as H.R.350, it seeks “to authorize dedicated domestic terrorism offices within the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Justice, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to analyze and monitor domestic terrorist activity and require the Federal Government to take steps to prevent domestic terrorism.”
If passed, the bill would in theory give the DHS, DOJ, and FBI more tools and resources to monitor certain groups and individuals they consider to be potential domestic terrorists. But Gabbard, a Democrat, worries that it could be used in practice to cast a wide net and label almost half the country as extremists or potential extremists.
“When you look at their process and they start looking at what characteristics we’re looking for as we are building this profile of a potential ‘extremist,’ what are we talking about?” Gabbard inquired. “Religious extremists, are we talking about Christians? Evangelical Christians? What is a religious extremist? Is it somebody who is pro-life? Where do you take this?
“You start looking at, obviously, has to be a white person, obviously likely male, libertarians, anybody who loves freedom, liberty, maybe has an American flag outside their house, or people who attended a Trump rally,” she continued. “Once you start walking this down the path, you see where it leads: to a very dangerous undermining of our civil liberties, our freedoms in our Constitution, and a targeting of almost half of the country.”
Her remarks come not just in response to Representative Schneider’s bill, but also to the comments by ex-CIA Director John Brennan in which he said that Joe Biden’s administration is “moving in laser-like fashion” to combat something he claims is “very similar to insurgency movements that we’ve seen overseas,” something in the United States that’s akin to an “unholy alliance” of “religious extremists, authoritarians, fascists, bigots, racists, nativists, and even libertarians.”
Gabbard also called on President Biden to disavow Brennan’s remarks and work to build the “unity” he so often stressed during his presidential campaign.
“This whole effort, whether you’re talking about this bill or people saying that we have to deprogram these Trump cultists […] all of this just goes to further tear our country apart. And it moves towards what Joe Biden said in his inauguration speech that shouldn’t happen, which is a dehumanization of your opponent. […] He needs to denounce people like John Brennan and their statements, bills like the one Adam Schiff put forward, and truly speak to the American people about how we must come together around the Constitution and around our Bill of Rights, around these rights that have been endowed to us by our Creator,” she said.
