Elbert Guillory’s ‘Why I’m A Republican’ Video


This will give you chills. It’s evidence that when Guillory announced his party switch at the @large conference 2 1/2 weeks ago he wasn’t kidding about being a Frederick Douglass Republican.

And it’s evidence that Guillory is willing to do more than call himself a Republican but to actually get his hands dirty and fight to open the black community to a conservative message.

We haven’t had this high a profile black conservative leader in Louisiana. Not in a long time.

It’s going to be interesting to see how far Guillory can move the needle.

    Oh Yeah, things are looking up Brother…Another prayer answered with a Wake-Up-Call to All Americans! Stay Strong Sir….

    Wow, Senator Elbert Guillory. Thank you.

  3. Jeff Kibodeaux says:

    I will pray for this courageous man. The liberals will now begin their usual character assasinations in order to minimize his impact. I wish some of our conservative leaders would follow Sen. Guillory's lead in unashamedly espousing the conservative, God-led principles that our nation was founded upon. Well said Senator!

      So true, Jeff. "Character assassination" really sums it up. I* can already guess the awful names they will call him. He's a patriot and a good American.

    This IS a Profile In Courage!!

  5. Sir, It takes a brave man to step up to the truth and we applaud your actions. We know of the onslaught of harsh criticisms you will endure from the other party. We have prayed for a strong man of truth and courage such as you. Gods blessings to you and your family.

    Finally. A black man, an aged black, speaking the truth about the core differences between these 2 parties. I kinda wish he had added in that the KKK was a branch of the Democrats – FOR CONTROL through fear and intimidation. Many times (OK-most times) since the Civil War, the Democratic Party voted to keep the black population less equal to the white man. We are a Constitutional Republic, not a Democracy. Is democracy even mentioned in our founding documents? NO! I pray that this great Senator gains momentum and spreads the Truth.

    Senator, You are so right, I have been telling the black man that for years and once in a while I get though to one and when I see them a couple years later they thank me for making their lives better.I tell them that they did it I just showed them the way.

  17. Susan Baumgaertner Fentz says:

    I'm in awe at the courage of this man. It's sad that the Republican establishment is behaving so badly right now.

  18. Mona Wheeler says:

    This is so wonderfully refreshing to hear. I pray that his words are heard and understood by all Americans — not distorted or misrepresented — not used to cause hate or anger. He has "said" what so many have thought and wanted to say. I hope this is a turning event for those that need some guidance. Bless You Senator Guillory. God Speed.

  19. Thank you for your words of wisdom. And for speaking against a party that Plays off of minorities emotions and not their intelligence.

  20. Mark Watson says:

    From a white 54 yr old male…………I LOVE YOU Elbert!

  21. Well said, Senator Guillory, thank you for standing up and letting the black community hear the truth.

  22. I am so thrilled that more and more people are standing up for what is right. I am a 70 year old woman with not much I can do anymore physically, but I still and contribute and still can pray for those who can do the work. Thank you Sen. Guillory. May God send you many others to help in this fight.

  23. Carol Murphy says:

    Thank you for being brave enough to say these things. I will stand up for you when others attack you.

  24. I'm stunned. God bless this man!
