A state senator in Louisiana explains in a new video why he switched to the Republican Party, arguing that the GOP should be the new home for African-Americans like him.

In the video, state Sen. Elbert Guillory says Democrats use social programs like welfare and food stamps to monopolize the black vote. He urges them to “please join with me today in abandoning the government plantation and the party of disappointment.”

“You see, at the heart of liberalism is the idea that only a great and powerful big government can be the benefactor of social justice for all Americans,” Guillory says. “But the left is only concerned with one thing: control. And they disguise this control as charity. Programs such as welfare, food stamps — these programs aren’t designed to lift black Americans out of poverty. They were always intended as a mechanism for politicians to control the black community. The idea that blacks — or anyone else — need the government to get ahead is despicable.”

“Perhaps to me the biggest disappointment has been the way the Democratic Party has treated the black community, as though we are simply in the hip pocket of the Democrats,” he explained. “So they have not addressed…issues dealing with minority employment particularly, the condition of the black family, education, all the things that really affect the black communities across this country. Those things are just ignored.”

Guillory closes the four-minute video with a quote from Martin Luther King Jr., whom he calls a “Republican leader,” a titled used by his nice, Alveda King.

  1. CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORON says:

    I ASSUME Louisiana State Senator Elbert Guillory WAS ELECTED DUE TO MAJORITY NEGRO SUPPORT; THEREFORE, HE IS A TRAITOR. BEFORE SWITCHING PARTIES, Senator Guillory SHOULD HAVE ABDICATED HIS SEAT AND RAN AS A REPUBLICAN IN THE NEXT ELECTION-CYCLE. CITIZENS ALWAYS COMPLAIN ABOUT SLICK POLITICIANS; WHEN A POLITICIAN LOSES THE CONSTITUENTS’ TRUST, HE/SHE MAY AS WELL GO HOME.
