MAKE IT VIRAL: Black Louisiana Senator Elbert Guillory explains why he became a Republican

This has to be one of the most powerful ‘ads’ I’ve ever seen on what it means to be a Republican. But even more than that, Louisiana Senator Elbert Guillory explains why, as a black man, leaving the Democratic Party and becoming a Republican was absolutely the right choice and not nearly as tough as some have suggested.



I am deeming this a MUST WATCH because it’s fantastic:

Up until 2007, Guillory had been a registered Republicanhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elbert_Guillory#cite_note-adv531-6 and served on the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louisiana_Republican_Party.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elbert_Guillory#cite_note-ind-7 He became a Democrat in 2007 when he first ran for the state House in the heavily http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democratic_Party_(United_States) District 40.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elbert_Guillory#cite_note-8http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elbert_Guillory#cite_note-tp531-9http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elbert_Guillory#cite_note-ind-7 During the 2013 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louisiana_Legislature#Sessions_and_Quorum of the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louisiana_Legislature, Guillory switched his party affiliation back to Republican.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elbert_Guillory#cite_note-10

This guy is a flip flopper extraordinaire.  He was a Republican, then a Democrat and then now again a Republican. All in the space of 6 years. Oy vey.

That is why I do not understand the Catholic Church ban on birth control. I feel birth control should be free as a possible means of reducing the number of abortions. I am very much pro-life except to save the life of the mother. It is a proven fact that children raised in a two parent home (man and woman) grew up to be happier and more productive than children raised by a single parent. That being said, is it not better to be a single parent than to have an abortion?

CarolinaLover I am Catholic and my family never was against birth control and going to a catholic school we were never counceled against its use. Yes, we were told no sex before marrage but we did. The abortion thing is a different thing . It is a life but again I agree that in the case of the mother’s life or if rape or done before a certain time, like quickly i see nothing against it. I see many of those that have the abortions did little or nothing to prevent the pregnacy and have very lame excuses like “my bf does not to use them” stupid. I see many are actually numerous repeat abortioners and all at the government expenses. I thing they use excuses over board and expect the government to pay for it. Not all the time does the birth control work is another excuse used too much. Whyen… Read more »

Well, guess we will just have to agree to disagree. I believe that life begins at conception and an abortion at any time except to save the life of the mother is murder of a innocent baby. If you do much reading on the issue of abortion you read about the women who later regret that they had an abortion and are having a hard time dealing with it. I have a friend like that. I do totally agree with you about all the excuses that are used. At what point do we start holding people responsible for their own actions?  Schools do a very poor job of teaching any morals these days and they certainly fail to teach that there will be consequences for their actions.

The farm bill is a mess! As you state much of the subsidy money goes to people who merely own the land. Many live in places such as New York City. Why do we have subsidies being paid to peanut farmers? Why do we have subsidies being paid to sugar cane growers? Why are there controls on how much milk can be produced? “They” are saying that without price controls the price of milk will sky rocket. Well, just take away the controls and let the free market work. Do away with all farm subsidies! There was a time we needed them but no more!

There is a lot of talk about welfare and the amount of that money that goes to blacks and what they do with the funds and so forth. I believe in a simple saying, and I don’t remember who said it, but it goes like this, “give a man a fish and he will eat for a day, teach a man to fish and he could live for a life time”. Welfare is not the answer for people who need to be upwardly mobile and self sufficient…I’m not saying what I heard but what I know…my family was on welfare in Louisiana when I was young…and it was an ugly thing.  Thank God we broke out of the cycle through education and hard work.

KenStarr If you would research that question further you would find that… if he wasn’t a Republican his party must have been the Democratic (Dixiecrats) Party, at a time during the 60’s when Dixiecrats were standing in schoolhouse doors, loosing dogs on marchers, putting people in jail, and turning the water hoses on black people. Surely, you remember that….
Oh by the way, his family members say that he was a Republican…and he wasn’t the first Republican in his family.

KenStarr, as I understand what Dr. Martin Luther King’s niece, Dr. Alveda King, of the Silent No More Awareness campaign, and I believe her father was also murdered, Dr. Martin Luther King was indeed a Republican.  Now, I could have misunderstood what she has said about her uncle and you could be right and so could politifact.com but until I hear otherwise from her publicly I’ll continue to say Dr. Martin Luther King was a Republican as were most blacks following the War Between The States for many, many, many decades.

itis out that even though a close race the scandels and vote fraud were in his game. He actually out campaigned Mitt. Hurricane Sandy saved him to make more false promises and lies he was not intending to do. People with knowledge and integretey are not going to be so fluid with their speeches as they are aware of the situations and limits they have. OB on the other hand felt free to say whatever he knew the people wanted to hear. I was disapointed in one debate where OB called Mitt a liar in that he was not governor while Mass had the highest education in the country. truth was Mitt was the governor! and he had the chance to show the country the BS OB was trowing! Why he did not respond I just cannot understand.

Why are sending millions/billions to countries that hate us? Why did we send weapons to Egypt for them to perhaps use against us one day? It is time we stayed out of other countries business and brought our troops home. It does no good to get in the middle of a religious civil war. McCain is wrong on supporting the rebels in Syria. We did not win in Iraq. We will not win the war we are currently in and we do not need to get involved in Syria. As Colin Powell said you have to have an exit plan.

I am not an emotional person, but this man made me cry. This man speaks from his heart, that is what makes him so great and that is why i would vote for this man if I lived in Louisiana. Thank you Sen, Elbert Guillory, Many of the young and uninformed these days believe that the Republicans that you speak of is gone and that somehow we have become racist when that isn’t the truth at all. What is the truth is that we are fighting a different kind of slavery. We want to free people from big government, from failed liberal programs and from school systems that do nothing for them.

DarkKnight2016 You nailed it in your comments. The young people today do not realize that it has been Republicans who pushed for civil rights, who opened the schools for blacks, who changed the military. It was Democrats who stood in the school doorway to prevent blacks from entering. We have a black friend who says the Democrats only want to give Blacks a hand-out and not a hand-up. This country cannot continue on the tax and spend road it is only. How can Democrats think that handing down a ton of debt to their children and grandchildren is the right thing to do!

I guess you must have been absent in History classes! Just take a look at the maps showing the states that Romney won as opposed to the states that Obama won. The red states do not have high murder rates, the blue states do. The red states do not have high welfare numbers, the blue states do. The red states do not have high crime rates, the blue states do. The red states do not have high public debt, the blue states do. It just goes on and on. Republicans do not support late term murder of unborn babies nor do they support murder of the baby born alive after an abortion as does Obama.

It is GOP states who spend more than they collect in taxes.” They don’t want you to link this article to them. It’s not evidence, its a hit piece, or should I say a White House talking point.

A  couple of weeks ago the flag-draped coffin of a young Louisiana soldier was returned here from Afghanistan where he had been killed by a rocket-propelled grenade. The young soldier was black and he went into the service because it would be a way for him to pay for his future education since his mother would not be able to afford it.  He came from the small town of Tickfaw, which is near Denham Springs on the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain. Well, when the mother of the young soldier came to the airport in Slidell to receive her son’s coffin, she was greeted by hundreds upon hundreds of people who also came to pay their respects and also a group of motorcyclists who came for the express purpose of escorting her son home to his final resting place.  It seemed that they weren’t expecting anyone to show up other than themselves… Read more »

“The idea that blacks–or anyone–need a government program to lift them up…” Poor people (some of whom are lazy–such as the Obamaphone people) don’t have money. If they didn’t get money from the government, where would they get it??? Welfare helps poor people. Welfare is wrong precisely because it wastes money. It’s not wrong because it hurts poor people–it does precisely the opposite–without it poor people would have LESS money. (The idea that the government shouldn’t be gathering intelligence from phones.) The idea that the government should gather intelligence–including from phone records–to fight terrorism is a very Republican idea. It originated–in its most recent iteration–from George W. Bush and the Republican Party. Of course, Bush doesn’t deserve all the praise for it. Presidents throughout history have been using various means to gather intelligence, including Roosevelt.

And of course the history question addresses the question of today.  Since the Republican Party staked out the claim of trying to uphold the “created equal” founding principle, it simple left the Democrats nowhere else to get voters from, except racist politics.  For 130 years the Democrats stood for laws that gave advantage to whites over blacks. … Read more »

One BIG problem is that so many can make more money on welfare than they can by going to work.

There are those who are really unable to work but it really bothers me that our government continues to pay for women having baby after baby just to get a check. Believe me, it happens.

CalCoolidge notpilgrims UPDATE: You attacked me by saying that people shouldn’t have to pay for poor people to have extra money, proving that you can’t read. Let me copy and paste something I wrote: “Welfare is wrong precisely because it wastes money.”
Additionally, you randomly said I was racist. Racist? Are you Jessica Jackson? I can’t even begin to fathom what you grabbed onto to pretend I was racist.
Also, you said Democrats support racist anti-black laws, but currently, the government is not so racist as you and your friend Jackson think it is. There are few laws that are institutionally racist towards minorities. Moreover, most laws addressing race or social issues explicitly go out of their way to pander to the concerns of racial and social interest groups.

Welfare is meant to be a hand up,not a hand out. If the Adminstration, obamacare, other government entities and the unions weren’t killing businesses and by extension jobs the hand up would be short. Not a way of life.
I guess I’m not understanding you. Are you saying it is ok to gather information on citizens without a warrent? Its ok because you claim its a Republican thing? Its ok because Bush and other presidents did it? Maybe all of the above? Or maybe Obama can do it because he…..well, because he’s the Won?
The answer to your question is, neither party is better, Republicans have become Democrats and Democrats have become Communists. Democrats are who they are, the party of Jim Crow, the KKK, and death. And that’s not an attack, its their history.

Communist’s don’t come to power by killing people, that’s an historical fact. They gain power by offering government services and handouts, they give away resources to the poor (who can argue with that?) Then, they eliminate the ability of people to earn an income.

To all of you who didn’t get off your butts, shut up.

So look at the times and the situation at had before you open your pie hole. I am sure during WW 2 the investigations were high as well, wonder why?? think , you can do this yes??

He will believe whatever makes him happy. he would rather see the enslavment actions as he is probably one that benefits from it. Any how let him go. not worth it. The guy probably never did a day of service to our country and never had a thought to do so as long as he is on the recieving side. Your words are true. he is a fool.

notpilgrims As for “The idea that the government should gather intelligence–including from phone records–to fight terrorism is a very Republican idea. It originated–[qualifier] in its most recent iteration–from … Republican Party,” etc. through Lincoln… Are you suggesting that excuses such behavior on the part of the current administration? I think the other thing to remember is that as our technology gets better it is that much easier to get that much more information about people… the difference in that vs. Lincoln’s day, or even a decade ago, makes that argument almost laughable. Regardless of the intent to gain information, the opportunity to do so is MUCH greater today. All the more reason to protect our interests from such behavior… NOT try to EXCUSE it, just because you want to excuse any misbehavior by your preferred party/person(s). Regardless of what may have happened in the past, doesn’t excuse the present. On the other… Read more »

JL97 notpilgrims As far as technological advances go, I was particularly referring to Bush as well as Lincoln and FDR and others. I mean, Bush was the genesis of the wiretapping program, and technology hasn’t advanced enough in 8 years to make a material difference between the extent of the moral questions associated with the practice. I think that we form governments to protect ourselves. The US government didn’t form to rule us–the government is a tool formed by the public. So I think it is right to use that tool to protect us in terms of gathering intelligence. The government doesn’t care if I called my friend on a Saturday night.

I was born in 1944 on a cotton plantation in Tensas Parish, Louisiana and for most of my adult life I have been a registered and voting Republican (in a sea of Democrats without a clue) for the very same reasons, you, Statesman Guillory, have switched his party affiliation. I realized that the Democratic Party is not a place for black people who are concerned about their own progress and will being. The Democrats have over the years been at the root of all things concocted (even the KKK) to stop the upward mobility and self reliance of black people, period. And this elaborate Democratic plantation that exist today has taken the place of the one I was raised on in Tensas Parish, La., where, today, blacks are almost totally dependent upon the government for their livelihood. They do not connect the dots between their present day reality and their… Read more »

Are blacks in 2013 America not able to read history? Can they not see for themselves the roots of their impoverished surroundings? Are they not able to improve themselves as millions of others have over the past 150 years, immigrant and native-born? These ignortant, Obama-voting  thieves-on-welfare need a good kick in the a$$. We need to stop coddling them and making excuses for past sins and tell them to grow a pair and start acting like grown men and women. Until they wake up and start taking responsibility for their own actions (ie STOP BLAMING WHITEY),  blacks will continue to live in their own self-made squalor.

For the first time ever in my years – and there are lots of them – a politician has brought me to tears of joy. No, this man is not a politician, he is a statesman of the same type as Jefferson and Lincoln. This is the kind of man we need in the White House, a man with dignity, wisdom, experience, and humility, who sees the individual as more important than the state and who sees the Author of Life as our source of liberty, freedom, and life. The Democrats, in their collectivist nightmare, have made slaves of black people again. In their zeal, they have now brought white people, Hispanics, and Asians into that slavery, into the plantation, both those who labour and those who receive government “support”. My prayer is that Mr. Guillory will be the catalyst to freeing all of today’s American slaves, be they black,… Read more »

mal138JoeLeBlanc  From your link, “So how did the 1860s Republicans become the 2010s Democrats?” They were called racists. It has a bad connotation for people who are not racist at all. But the opportunity to vote for the first black president and avoid being called a racist put Obama in the oval office. “President Obama began his second term with a stirring speech before a diverse throng. He called for an inclusive America, pushing immigration reform and specifically endorsing gay rights.” President Obama has been giving speeches that sound good his whole career. Big deal. He calls for diversity while he divides us by color, gender, religion, sexual preference, or anything other wedge he can drive between us. He is not calling for immigration reform. Immigration consists of people coming to America legally and follow her laws. No, what he is pushing is colonization. The very thing he was appalled… Read more »

One thing so many do not realize is that until the war was over only the slaves in the south were freed. Lincoln did not free the slaves in the north and yes there were many of them. Who do you think brought the slaves over here from Africa? Who do you think captured the people in Africa and sold them to the slave buyers? The north needs to share the blame for this terrible time in our history. We have a black friend who says he is glad there was slavery because if there had not been he would not be an American. That is certainly another way of looking at it!

Elbert- Thank you for your inspiring words. Every night I pray that God will open the eyes of people of all backgrounds to the evil that is the marxist democrat party. One only needs to look at the cities in America that are under democrat control to see that blacks in America still live in a form of slavery, and that most of the abortion factories are located in black areas of these cities, and that planned parenthood was founded by a racist eugenicist whose stated goal was to ‘breed blacks out of existence’,  and that the kkk was founded as an enforcement arm of the democrat party, etc. I hope that you will be that voice crying in the wilderness. May God keep the wind at your back.

Woodrow Wilson, the founder of the modern Democrat Party, resegregated the armed forces of the United States before WWI and was a member of the Klan who detested our Constitution and our Declaration of Independence and the first film ever shown in The White House was “Birth of a Nation” about the Klan and was shown and applauded by Woodrow Wilson. Dr. Kermit Gosnell, the baby butcher of Philedelphia, who was recently convicted of three counts of murder targeted black Americans for extermination by legal abortion in the most horrible of ways in keeping with the eugenicist philosophy of Planned Parenthood’s founder, the “father of modern society”, Margaret Sanger who hated minorities and poor whites and who created “The Negroe Project” for the espress purpose of exterminating the black race which, sadly, is succeeding in many big cities where the abortion rate amongst blacks is around 75%.  Now maybe they were Republicans… Read more »

Mega-ditto! CardinaLover.  Mega-ditto!
Sadly, that’s what is being taught to everyone, especially the poor, of all races, in schools these days, that it is better to have a child killed than to give it up for adoption to a married man and woman who are unable to conceive a child but who would desperately welcome the opportunity to be adoptive parents of any child of any race or of mixed races.
It’s the sad tragic legacy of the “father of modern society” Margaret Sanger’s Negroe Project and so is Nero Obama who has absolutely no problem with anything that the Dr. Kermit Gosnell’s of this world have done.  You could even say Nero Obama is the Dr. Gosnell of politics.

phil123 It’d be difficult. Blacks tend to shut out other blacks who don’t tow the Party line. There needs to be critical mass before the numbers start to shift. At around 15%, you’re making progress with a possible shift 10 years down the road. At 20%, you have more options. The tipping point is usually around 35%. But if just 20% of blacks were to vote Republicans, Democrats will never win another national election. This is why this ad is spot on, the Democrats absolutely require blacks to be dependent on them. Otherwise, their Party is doomed to disappear forever. People don’t seem to realize why Democrats voted for Obama and why Obama is doing such radical things. It’s because they know this may be the last time a Democrat goes to the White House so they need to “change” things as much as they can to try and advance their… Read more »

I hope you are right that this is the last time there will be a Democrat in the White House but watch out for Hillary. She sheds trouble like water off a duck’s back. Many will vote for her just because she is a woman just as many voted for Obama just because he is a black man. He really is not a black man, he is half white, one quarter Arabic and one quarter black. How many have heard the young black woman talking about how the Democrats have put blacks back on the plantation? This is true. They get hand-outs just as their masters used to give them. The problem is that so many do not realized that they are now enslaved to the Democratic Party.
