In Louisville, America Edges Closer to a ‘Shooting Race War’

The George Floyd saga has developed a potentially dangerous new turn. This past weekend, the city of Louisville, Kentucky avoided a potentially deadly armed clash, as two opposing and heavily armed militia groups came within dozens of yards of each other after the latest politically-charged Black Lives Matter demonstration.

The weekend spillover demonstrations followed a Friday protest which saw 76 people being arrested after setting up an impromptu road block in downtown Market Street area. Black Lives Matter activists presented a new list of demands to local business owners mandating the hiring of more Black workers by all businesses and companies trading in the city.

Protestors were also out to apply additional pressure on the Kentucky Attorney General’s office to further investigate and charge the officers involved in the killing of 26-year-old Breonna Taylor, an ER technician fatally shot by police in March.

‘Black Militia vs White Militia’

On Saturday, two opposing militias, both heavily armed, came dangerously close to confrontation in downtown Louisville when they were marching some 50 meters away of each of other.

Fortunately, tensions did not escalate and no shots were fired, but the potential clash did raise the specter of a “shooting race war” in America.

The exclusively Black militia were the radical leftist, Atlanta-based Black group known as the “Not Fucking Around Coalition” (NFAC), and were approximately 300 strong and armed with AR-15 semi-automatic, sniper rifles and other assault weapons.

Reuters described the paramilitary formation as follows:

Scores of the demonstrators, carrying semi-automatic rifles and shotguns and clad in black paramilitary gear, walked in formation to a fenced off intersection where they were separated by police from a smaller group of armed counter-protesters.

NFAC founder “Grandmaster Jay” had issued public demands for reparations from the US government, and that land be given, or one the US states be given as a ‘Black homeland’ and “New Black Nation” set within US borders, as compensation for slavery and historical suffering of Blacks.

According to reports, the NFAC came dangerously close to intersecting with a much smaller group of 50, but heavily armed “Three Percenters,” comprised of White, politically right-wing and Second Amendment activist members.

Louisville Metropolitan Police intervened and formed a buffer between the two seemingly opposing groups, keeping them apart for the duration of the demonstration on Saturday.

Later in the day after the NFAC moved to a park square nearby, screams of panic could be heard from the crowd as loud gunshots rang out. It was believed that one NFAC member might have accidentally shot three of his fellow militia members.

According to police reports, the NFAC’s “highly trained former military” members may have shot each other by accident, after having trouble properly handling the semi-automatic weapons they were carrying.

Police later confirmed that three members of the NFAC were in fact shot when one of their fellow militia’s semi-automatic rifle accidentally discharged during their armed demonstration on the park green Saturday afternoon.

All three victims were said to be taken to the local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

This type of racially-charged armed scene has not been witnessed in America in a very long, long time, and should therefore be of grave concern to anyone who wishes to avoid more political street violence – particularly in the run-up to, and after, the upcoming US 2020 Presidential Election.
