Sen Elbert Guillory says he's left 'the plantation'

This is touching, eye-opening, true and wonderful...........

If only more and more Black Americans paid attention to this Louisiana State Senator.

Anyone see Hannity's lineup last night? Impressive.

More stunningly, intelligent , conservative, family values blacks in one room voicing their disgust for Fat Al and Jesse Jerkson...then I've ever seen assembled together before. But they're so far off the plantation that the jackass party would sic the CDC on them if they could.

And guess what? They hate being hyphenated!! They feel that it's Jesse Jerkson who forced that separation of blacks on them from the rest of Americans...and they resent it.

Guess they're not counting on being interviewed by the racist, lying charlatan employed by PMSNBC, are they?

Brooke said...

I'm sure the 'Uncle Tom' slurs are already flying from the left...

Ed Bonderenka said...

Imp: the Hannity was great.
Lot of emphasis on the role of faith.
My question about Guillory and Artur Davis, why did it take him so long to come to this conclusion?

@ED:

I'd say what many of them said there...generational issues. That's the way their friends do it...that's the way they've "always" done it...so they just follow along without any thought process to think differently. Most have this totally wrong impression of the R's and conservatism. When in actuality...they're very conservative. Religion binds many of them too...same as us.

Ed Bonderenka said...

OK.

Ed Bonderenka said...

I may have said it before here, but I'm becoming more like my dad every day, so I'll repeat myself.
I saw "Lincoln", raved about it to a black acquaintance at work, he asked what part of his life it was about and ai replied "His fight against the democrats to end slavery".
His reply was that I must be wrong, the democrats were opposed to slavery and the republicans were for it.
Teaching moment. Mentioned MLK also.

Z said...

Imp, I did catch that last night....
I'd readied this video for posting today a few days ago and so I'm glad a LOT of people got to see parts of it last night..

They were incredible Americans. Loved it.

Ed...it's a hard wall to get through.
I have a Black girlfriend who agrees with me on almost ALL Conservative stances and ends with "But Z, it would be betrayal to my family and my color to vote for a Republican." I swear.
You're right about LINCOLN: I loved it, too, much more than I thought I would (just saw it the other day on DVD) And yes, the Dems have always fought to keep Black Americans from freedom.

Brooke...probably!

Dave Miller said...

Yes Ed, you are correct... the Republicans were the progressive party of the two back then, pushing the conservative democrats to places they would rather not go.

That age of Republicanism also included Teddy Roosevelt, who today is seen by many conservatives as a RINO, or not conservative enough because of his progressive policies.

As for the video, you all know I'm a liberal. My wife is African American and one of the questions I frequently have for her and her political minded brother is this...

The Dems have held court in Detroit for many years and the city is in the tank. Why can't this largely African American city even consider electing a Republican admin?

It can't possibly be because the Dems have been very good at administering the city. The place is pit.

Just how bad must it get before folks at least say, why not a Republican, it can't get any worse...

Even they have no answer...

Thersites said...

I'd vote for him!

Dave, the Republicans still put Black Americans first but it's not perceived that way; they are the party who feel affirmative action is degrading at this point, though it served a very good purpose 35 years or so ago. I remember being pleased that there were more Blacks in Westwood, for example (the business district near UCLA).. there was a marked difference and that has STAYED like that.
Today, I have Black doctor friends who say they feel some people think they got their opportunities because of their color and not because they worked so HARD. That's where affirmative action has failed by now.

Thanks for your honesty about Detroit and other cities in that shape (enough bloggers have posted the stats showing failing cities and how almost ALL are run by Democrats); What do YOU think is the problem with Black Americans voting for Republicans? How much 'credit' for that do you give the media? I think you and your wife would have benefited from seeing Hannity last night; I only watch him when he has audience participation shows and Imp (above) describes it well. It was really quite an eye-opener.
I feel sad that Black Americans are stuck in that if they feel differently than 'the flock', their own friends and family react so violently, as many shared last night.

Imp and Ed, I rather wished they'd stuck to politics last night, though faith is a big beautiful part of their lives, because the leftwingers and media could grab on that in their attempt to discard their viewpoints as "they're just a bunch of nutty Christians" instead of focusing on their POLITICAL feelings about Conservative vs Liberal.
On the other hand, now that I think of it, maybe faithful Black Americans did see a lot of Christians who've become Conservatives and are asking themselves "why not?" today...I hope so.

Thersites: me, too! me, too! :-)

@Z:

"I rather wished they'd stuck to politics last night.."


Can't separate the two....black ministers are pretty politically opinionated...especially Baptists...even if they are tax exempt.

FrogBurger said...

Nice contrast with Paula Deen the Obama supporter.

Pris said...

I love this man's speech. He has seen that those who treat black Americans like they can't succeed without a hand up is an insult to his race, and it is!

Affirmative action kept them separate from the rest of us. Robbed them of their dignity and pride.

Thomas Sowell said it best. He was a professor before affirmative action took place. He has said after that, students in his classes thought he had a hand up, but he didn't! He earned his position.

Anyone who sees black people needing a nanny state, sees them as inferiors. Is it any wonder that black Americans may feel resentful? Of course not. Haven't we all heard the phrase, "biting the hand that feeds you"?

Senator Guillory get's it. He's right about the left's "plantation". They use these people for votes by throwing them just enough crumbs to keep them there. This has been going on ever since LBJ's "War on Poverty".

I hated it then, as I do now. Black Americans are able to take care of themselves and they don't need a nanny, they need freedom to live their lives as individuals just as we all do.

Ducky's here said...

Wonder if he'll go further than Allen West.

Z said...

Imp, they weren't all Black ministers last night...most spoke of their faith.

FrogBurger, excellent point. REALLY good point.

Pris, I couldn't agree with you more. Well said.

Ducky, thankfully, Allen West is still doing a lot of speaking and writing, TV appearances, etc. You'd never see him on your cable which doesn't allow two-sided conversation, so you're missing out, but he's not going anywhere.

@Z:

"Imp, they weren't all Black ministers last night...most spoke of their faith."

Never implied they were. Their ministers play a large part of their lives...always have.

Re: Alan West...

"but he's not going anywhere."


He's going everywhere and it's not down... as the plantation master wish. He'll never be a part of their minstrel show like the subject of your blog today.

JonBerg said...

It seems to me that when members of an ethno-genic group, that is regarded as preponderately Democrat, catch on to the reality of how they have been duped they really GET IT! I notice this occuring with Jews and now more and more with blacks who suffered most from the Nation's greatest scam of all time, known as The "Great Society"! The Democrat Party, no matter what it may have been, is nothing more than a criminal enterprise!

Ed Bonderenka said...

Like Imp said. It wasn't directly about faith, but you can't separate your faith from your actions (James said that).

Z said...

Imp...sorry. Your "Black ministers are pretty opinionated" gave the definite feeling you thought the audience were all ministers.
I see what you mean now!

Ed...of course you can't. And we shouldn't. I still have mixed feelings about their talking so much about their faith when they also talked of Conservatism in many terms other than in their faith.

Impertinent said...

@Z:

Z...I'm convinced that their faith drives their conservatism....that they hold on and know and are certain in their belief in Scripture vs all the festering rot around them....that's all they have Z. It's certainly not faith in the lies and the poverty pimps who have decided that they can't...or they "aren't". The few who have decided that AA and handouts are a path to success and happiness.

These people realize it's all bogus and a lie. They should tar and feather jerkson and Fat al for the years they've profited off of black misery.

These two are chiefly responsible...while they lay about in Aramani suits and 3K per nite hotel suites.

And I think they know that Obama is in the same camp as the previous two..he doesn't identify or give a shit about America's blacks...unless it suits him and Holder to divide us further.

He is..the Head pimp all right...and he's never been in his phony life...been subjected to the average black American experience. His white mother...white upbringing...and white girlfriends.

He's only black...when he wants to start trouble and play golf with Tiger or get next to Beyonce...he's such a scumbag liar and a a fraud to these people.

TSWS said...

Blacks today say that the Southern Democrats jump to the Republican Party to stay in office; and today make up the majority of the Republican Party--racist Republicans

Z said...

Imp, I don't mean to beat a dead horse here, and you know there's nobody who's more thrilled when people talk about their faith on TV, but I would say that while faith plays a large part in the Black community, we need to show others that Black Americans also understand that most of our cities which are falling apart are run by Democrats.
I think they need to understand that affirmative action doesn't work much anymore and that by saying that, Republicans are on the side of Black America.
THese things have little to do with Christianity, though I think you're right that lots of positions DO.

I'm just eager for BLack Conservatives to speak up and come straight from the political point of view; I think it's an easier 'sell' to not hide their faith, but stick to facts and figures when they're trying to make points with Black Liberals...
