The video of Louisiana State Senator Elbert Guillory, went viral on my site and throughout the nation when he enthusiastically joined the Republican Party after a life commitment as a Democrat. In one of the most powerful videos in the political history of YouTube, Guillory is seen explaining his decision. Elbert Guillory compared the Democrat Party to a plantation, exposing how the “charity” of the welfare state is nothing more than a tool to “control.”
He appeared on the Glenn Beck Radio Program Thursday to speak more about his decision, saying he’s been a fan of the program for years.
“I was dissatisfied with the principles and the values of the party of disappointment,” he began, “the Democrat Party in Louisiana.”
Guillory said he has watched the “party moving further left on gun rights, abortion, prayer in schools, big government spending, and the family,” but it was the claim in the Senate that all who opposed Obamacare were racists that finally crossed a line.
When he heard Democrats claiming that if you oppose Obamacare, you’re a racist, Guillory said he couldn’t believe it. His 103-year-old mother called him and said she didn’t want him associated with “anything like this,” despite the fact that she also has been a lifelong Democrat.
“It was the last straw,” Guillory reflected.
The Democratic Party bosses have issued a liberal fatwa on Guillory, as he has been called vile names and has been “taken to task” by the Democrat “hierarchy” in the wake of his comments, but Guillory said: “I’m very comfortable with who I am, doing what I’m doing. It doesn’t hurt my feelings.”
When Beck asks how Guillory thinks the cycle of people “continuing to vote for the policies that are enslaving them and destroying their families” can be broken, Guillory said it is all goes back to education:
We have to…uplift the level of basic education, but we also have to do some political education, and convince people that [just] taking a few little handouts, just having a subsistence living…that it will keep you on the plantation for the rest of your life. That’s not a life. That’s not living. It’s not good enough. It’s not acceptable. We have to educate our people…You have to get off the plantation, the government plantation.
