‘Free at last!’ – black Democrat flees party of slavery

August 15 update: Via Catholic Vote, Senator Guillory announced he’s Catholic on this glorious feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Ave Maria & Salve Regina!

In part, he says:

“Dear Friend of Liberty,

“Hello, my name is Elbert Guillory.

“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 did this and 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.

“I’m taking this message to people across the country as the new Chairman of Free at Last PAC. This important initiative will support strong conservative Black candidates running for higher office as well as strategically advocate for Republican candidates to Black Americans.

“But I need your help. You see, my decision to leave the Democratic Party has brought me a whole host of enemies. That is why I am asking my fellow Catholics to stand with me and support my new initiative.

“Like you, I am pro-life. I believe in protecting traditional marriage. And I think that big government policies are hurting the poor and middle class — especially black Americans. These are the ideas at the core of the Republican Party, and it is why I am a Republican.

“That message scares the Democrats in power in Washington. And that’s why they want to stop me and silence my message.

“But I am not afraid of them. And with your help, I’ll keep defending these great principles. …

For Liberty,
Elbert Guillory

“A state senator from Louisiana who recently announced his departure from the Democratic Party to become a Republican says the party of President Obama is one of “overseers.”

“State Sen. Elbert Guillory released a video Sunday explaining his reason for leaving the Democrats, citing their opposition to civil rights, their attitudes toward people and their desire for ‘control.'”
