Louisiana State Senator Elbert Guillory leaves Democrats, joins GOP as a ‘Frederick Douglas Republican’

Louisiana Democratic State Senator Elbert L. Guillory who represents Louisiana’s Senate District 24, announced that he is no longer a Democrat and has become a Republican.

NewsNinja2012 reported Friday from the @Large Conference Guillory’s announcement.

“With each passing day, I have become disappointed in the Democratic Party. What would be the impact on schools due to immigration? One of the biggest disappointments has been breakdown of American families. Their policies have encouraged the high teen birthrate, high school drop out rates, high unemployment. Children are encouraged to get the crazy check instead of honkering down to get an education. Minority unemployment is in the stratosphere.”

The Ninjas noted that “Guillory coined the word ‘Scaredy Pants Crisis Management.'”

“I want better for my country and Louisiana. We must help America find her path home. The people in this room today seek an alternative solution to these problems of America. We have received some pretty good deals under the Republican Party. Republicans helped LBJ pass the Civil Rights Act over the objections of most Democrats. President Nixon left Vietnam and brought the money home and invested in America; Obama hasn’t done anything like that.”

“I pledged my dues, and I look forward to creating new partnerships in the State of Louisiana. I am of this day joining Frederick Douglass as a Republican.”

The announcement comes just days after State Sen. Karen Carter Peterson stated that those who do not support President Obama’s health care plan are racist.

Carter Peterson, who also chairs the Louisiana Democratic Party said Monday, “It’s not about how many federal dollars we can receive. It’s not about that,’ she told her fellow lawmakers. You ready? It’s about race. No, nobody wants to talk about that. It’s about the race of this African-American president.”

Guillory responded to her charge and said, “Some decks have only one card in it, and that’s the race card.”
