Guillory: "Liberalism Has Nearly Destroyed Black America"
Townhall.com ^ | August 7, 2013 | Daniel Doherty

Posted on 08/07/2013 11:28:49 AM PDT by jazusamo

You remember Elbert Guillory

. Now, however, he will be serving as the honorary chairman of the Free At Last Political Action Committee, which will work to help black conservatives win high national office, among other things:

VIDEO 4:17 minute: Elbert Guillory Announces the Free at Last PAC

Some journalists have urged caution when using “plantation” rhetoric when reaching out to potential voters. But generally speaking Guillory’s points are well-taken. It’s simply unacceptable for an entire community to vote almost exclusively for one political party when there are in fact two in this country. Have African-Americans really benefitted so much under Leftist policies and ideas that they’re unwilling to hear new ones? No. Guillory argues that “the values of the Republican Party far better represent the values of the black community.” I don’t doubt that’s true. But Republicans need to do a better job communicating those values -- especially with audiences wholly unfamiliar with them.

Although he was criticized for it, it reflects well on Senator Rand Paul that he was willing and able to go to Howard University last April to speak to a less-than-enthusiastic audience about Republican principles. Why aren’t more pols doing this? Conceding the black vote to Democrats is not only defeatist and cowardly, but a missed opportunity. Of course, some argue that the party should change in order to win elections. But Elbert Guillory doesn’t believe that’s true. And neither do I. What we need is more eloquent, passionate and courageous spokesmen and spokeswomen. Solving that issue, I think, would go a long way.

Liberals really hate when black Republicans use the word plantation to describe the democrat party.

It will take a while to break thru to get the truth to blacks. The Dems havevlied to them for decades about its history of supporting racism and its involvement in the creation of the kkk.

My best friend is a Black Conservative, who calls himself a “Frederick Douglass Republican”. The abuse he has taken for that over the years, from other blacks, is simply stunning, and would make you turn red in anger.

Remember folks, THESE PEOPLE ARE A DANGER to the Democrat status quo, and must be destroyed. There are many like him in the black community, but few dare to speak out, because the backlash is fierce and personal.

When a “Journalist” warns about using “Plantation Rhetoric”, it means that it is effective, and he fears losing his job if he dares to report it. look what happened to Pizza guy.

Good luck getting the Republican Party to persuade minority voters with their better ideas. The Republican Party’s approach to minorities is to persuade them Republicans are just like Democrats. I applaud the effort, but doubt the outcome.

In regards to black voters, whether or not plantation metaphors are appropriate, the Democrats own them. There may be a few runaways, or a few blacks who have never suffered the yoke of the Democrats, but they are an insignificant part of the black demographic, and shunned as such. The resisters are cultural, political heroes, and the Republican Party insults them by emulating Democrats.

He mentions family values and gun ownership among other things in the video but haven’t found anything yet in writing.

He sounds convincing and hopefully more will come out before long.

Wrong. There is 1 party with two factions, with little difference.

Yes, the GOP-e are very little different than lib Dems, would be more encouraging if Guillory talked Conservatives rather than Republicans.

It’s hard to make people who have learned to live on the pittance the government gives them believe that they will be better off with a good job in a good neighborhood.

"Nearly"??

The average inner-city plantation is as safe, productive, and financially solvent as Uganda or Zimbabwe.

Where is the blame for the situation on liberal/Commie Whites and Blacks?

Excellent points. I agree.

One caveat: It's the controlling Vichy GOPe swine who have been "emulating" the Dems; THAT is THE problem.

If you live a life where you’re told nothing is your fault, that the ‘’system’’ is stacked against you because of your skin color, you can have as many kids as someone else will pay for, sleep till noon everyday and get a free phone, why in Gods name would you want to live any other way? You’ll keep on pulling that lever for the party that gives you all of this.

Give the guy a few minutes! After all, he just “left” the RAT Party and he appears to be very sincere in his beliefs. Same can’t be said for most GOP officeholders.

First of all, welfare recipients are not living on a pittance. When all of the benefits are added in the average family of 3 received about $35,000 in benefits. Try making that on minimum wage working full time. The “poor” are a well kept voting bloc.

But they have no value for it because everything is “free”. The “poorest” in this country are the fattest.

I think Uganda is much better than it used to be... it’s probably much, much better than our inner cities.
