Governor Palin Tweets: Louisiana State Senator Escapes Democrat Plantation

Posted by Adrienne Ross on June 18, 2013

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

Governor Palin tweeted the following today, drawing our attention to a video by Louisiana State Senator Elbert Guillory, who has liberated himself from the plantation known as the Democrat party. In this video, Senator Guillory coherently and concisely expresses why the party of Abraham Lincoln–the anti-slavery, pro-equality party–is the natural home for black Americans.

This is the video to which the Governor links.

Guillory rejects the notion that his move from the Democrat party is a bold one. It’s simply the right one, he asserts. As a black American myself, I agree that when you know the facts, this is indeed the right choice–the only choice–for any self-respecting, freedom-loving black person. The Democrat party enslaves and manipulates. It does not empower, promote, or provide viable solutions. I dare say, though, that this senator is indeed bold. I have never been a Democrat, so I’ve never had to leave the party. I am a conservative who happens to be a registered Republican, and as such I have experienced first-hand the vitriol directed at blacks who refuse to be enslaved by a self-serving, heavy-handed political party with a history dripping with racism and oppression. More and more must awake to the truth that Democrat leaders don’t want them to learn. And more and more must come to understand that today’s political enslavement is just as dangerous, and produces the same impotence, that the slavery of old produced. The conservative movement could use more people like Senator Guillory who can articulate this as passionately as he does in the video.

The first blog post I ever wrote in 2008 was called “Get Off the Plantation.” In it, I expressed how blacks have been used by slave master Democrats for votes and perpetual power:

How is it that well after 100 years since the end of slavery, many African-Americans still live on the plantation? No, we’re not picking cotton for the slave master or working in the big house. This is the political plantation I’m talking about, where we’re enslaved to a system that is the antithesis of what we believe in and what we represent. The slave master is the Liberal Democratic Party which uses control tactics and misinformation to keep itself in the big house at the expense of unsuspecting African-Americans and now Hispanics.

[…]

Democrats have done a good job of putting a lock on the “minority” vote by using racial slurs such as “Uncle Tom” or “Sell-Out” to refer to any Black person who would dare leave the plantation in search of his true God-ordained freedom. Those who stay behind have the chains of bondage tightened more and more around their minds. If they knew better, however, they would rush off the master’s property without looking back. Even Harriet Tubman declared that she could have led more slaves to freedom if she could have convinced them that they were slaves! But sometimes bondage becomes so familiar, it gets confused with freedom and begins to feel like home.

Read my full article here.

This video to which Governor Palin links is worth watching. In just over four minutes, viewers receive a plethora of common sense information. More than information, they receive truth–and we have all heard what happens when we know the truth. I’d say today is as good a day as any to be set free.

Palin: Great Video from a Louisiana State Senator

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on June 18, 2013

Governor Sarah Palin posted a video from State Senator Elbert Guillory  of Louisiana who recently changed his party affiliation from Democrat to Republican.  If you’d like a short history lesson, listen to what State Senator Guillory has to say.

From Palin’s Facebook page:

Here’s the great video from a Louisiana state senator on why he became a Republican that Rush played on his show today.

Palin then referenced this Real Clear Politics article which features the Senator’s announcement of his decision to make a change in parties, AND very specific reasons why. It’s a must-listen for the history content.

From Real Clear Politics:

Hello, my name is Elbert Lee Guillory, and I’m the senator for the twenty-fourth district right here in beautiful Louisiana. Recently I made what many are referring to as a ‘bold decision’ to switch my party affiliation to the Republican Party. I wanted to take a moment to explain why I became a Republican, and also to explain why I don’t think it was a bold decision at all. It is the right decision — not only for me — but for all my brothers and sisters in the black community.

You see, in recent history the Democrat Party has created the illusion that their agenda and their policies are what’s best for black people. Somehow it’s been forgotten that the Republican Party was founded in 1854 as an abolitionist movement with one simple creed: that slavery is a violation of the rights of man.

Frederick Douglass called Republicans the ‘Party of freedom and progress,’ and the first Republican president was Abraham Lincoln, the author of the Emancipation Proclamation. It was the Republicans in Congress who authored the thirteenth, fourteenth, and fifteenth amendments giving former slaves citizenship, voting rights, and due process of law.

The Democrats on the other hand were the Party of Jim Crow. It was Democrats who defended the rights of slave owners. It was the Republican President Dwight Eisenhower who championed the Civil Rights Act of 1957, but it was Democrats in the Senate who filibustered the bill.

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. 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 black the black community.

The idea that blacks, or anyone for that matter, need the the government to get ahead in life is despicable. And even more important, this idea is a failure. Our communities are just as poor as they’ve always been. Our schools continue to fail children. Our prisons are filled with young black men who should be at home being fathers. Our self-initiative and our self-reliance have been sacrificed in exchange for allegiance to our overseers who control us by making us dependent on them.

Sometimes I wonder if the word freedom is tossed around so frequently in our society that it has become a cliché.

The idea of freedom is complex and it is all-encompassing. It’s the idea that the economy must remain free of government persuasion. It’s the idea that the press must operate without government intrusion. And it’s the idea that the emails and phone records of Americans should remain free from government search and seizure. It’s the idea that parents must be the decision makers in regards to their children’s education — not some government bureaucrat.

But most importantly, it is the idea that the individual must be free to pursue his or her own happiness free from government dependence and free from government control. Because to be truly free is to be reliant on no one other than the author of our destiny. These are the ideas at the core of the Republican Party, and it is why I am a Republican.

So my brothers and sisters of the American community, please join with me today in abandoning the government plantation and the Party of disappointment. So that we may all echo the words of one Republican leader who famously said, ‘free at last, free at last, thank God Almighty, we are free at last.’  More
