Free Grandmaster Jay-"Not Fucking Around Coalition" Commander Arrested

by Webster Bernell Brooks lll on 12/03/20

John Fitzgerald Johnson, A.K.A. "Grandmaster Jay," the Supreme Commander of the "Not Fucking Around Coalition" Black militia, was arrested on Thursday, December 3, on federal charges. 


New Black Nationalists condemn the U.S. government's deliberate attempt to decapitate the "Not Fucking Around Coalition" by permanently removing its leader. Furthermore, Johnson's arrest is a direct attack on Black people, their right to armed self-defense, and to bear arms. 

These trumped up charges were brought against Johnson, who allegedly pointed his rifle at Louisville policemen and Secret Service agents on a rooftop overlooking Armory Place at night. The incident in Louisville was supposed to have occurred on September 4, 2020, after a rally supporting Justice for Breonna Taylor. Johnson is being held in Oldham County Jail in LaGrange, Kentucky with no bail.

The criminal complaint states that Johnson "forcibly assaulted, resisted, opposed, impeded, intimidated, and interfered with federally deputized task force officers" when he aimed a rifle at them. If convicted Johnson would face 20 years in federal prison.      

Details about the targeting of Johnson are sketchy. The Louisville Police said they were conducting watch over a crowd at Jefferson Square when they were notified of the presence of six to eight heavily armed people at Armory Place. Officers claimed when they looked down, they were "blinded by a light" which they determined was a flashlight mounted on a rifle Johnson pointed at them. 

Those same "blinded" officers looking down at night from the rooftop made positive identifications of Johnson. Really? They also said Johnson knew they were policemen when he pointed his rifle at them because two of the LMPD were wearing body armor with a semi-reflective placard clearly identifying them. Okay, they are actually testifying what Johnson saw. But hey, this is Louisville. We know their  dubious history with telling the truth.        

To buttress the LPMP's story, the FBI released a photo of a person pointing a rifle upwards. We assume that photo was enhanced or lightened as it appeared to be taken in the daytime. Newspaper reports tagged the grainy photo as Johnson.  

New Black Nationalists will continue to follow the developments surrounding this attempt to neutralize Grand Master Jay and intimidate the Not Fucking Around Coalition. 

Since the July 4, 2020 NFAC march on Stone Mountain, Georgia, we have expressed our support for the NFAC, as well as its pronouncements supporting the creation of a Black state. 

We have supported their promotion of armed self-defense for the Black community. And while we are not defenders of the U.S. Constitution, we have defended their right to bear arms. In our view, the NFAC is one of American Empire's worse nightmares--disciplined armed Black women and men with guns, and lots of them. 

It was inevitable that the FEDs were going to try to take the NFAC and the charismatic Johnson down. This Cointelpro 2.0 operation must not be allowed to stand. This is political hit on Grandmaster Jay, and it must be fought as a political battle. Now is the time for all Black organizations and individuals to demand that Johnson be released on bail. 

New Black Nationalists implore all self-identifying Black radicals, revolutionaries, progressives, and Black Nationalists to unify to stop the railroading of "Grandmaster Jay" Johnson. Now is the time to demand freedom for Grandmaster Jay Johnson.
