The New Abolitionists: Abolish Prisons, Abolish ICE, Limit Police, Erase Borders
With each passing political campaign when Americans believe that the Democratic Party has gone as far to the Left as possible without falling off the face of the earth, they come up with newer, dumber ideas, said political strategist, retired U.S. Naval officer and attorney Elbert Lee Guillory (R-Lousiana).
According to one of America’s most patriotic and service-minded citizens — who has experienced first-hand bigotry and discrimination as a black man in the U.S. South — there is a frightening and destructive movement within the Deep State called the “new abolitionists.”
“They want to abolish prisons, abolish ICE and severely limit police from doing their jobs!” said the former Louisiana State Senator Guillory.
For example, rather than holding the bad guys — including criminal thugs and career felons — in prisons separated from their potential victims, these Democrat and RINO (Republicans in Name Only) politicans want to concentrate on rehabilitation and re-entry programs that have been tried and tried again and always failed.
They want to forgive and release murderers and rapists and robbers, noted Guillory in a press statement emailed to the National Association of Chiefs of Police. “They want to stop the police from patrolling, stop the police from arresting and stop the police from protecting the rest of us!” the 75-year-old African American activist exclaimed.
What once was kept under wraps by the Democratic Party and their partners in the new media, is now being spoken about in the light of day: the Green New Deal, socialism, free everything, and now they say killers, rapists and robbers should go free.
Elbert Lee Guillory recently completed a decade-long stint in the Louisiana’s legislative branch, where as State Senator he worked closely with Gov. Bobby Jindal’s administration to create landmark school choice legislation for underprivileged students in Louisiana. He supported financially-strapped parents being afforded the opportunity to send their children to top private schools. However, the Democrats — especially black Democrats — made “school-choice” an evil-sounding solution to the nation’s education system.
Originally elected and serving as a Democratic Party lawmaker, Guillory made national news by switching to the Republican Party in June of 2013, during President Barack Obama’s second-term.
In a video statement titled “Why I Became a Republican”, Guillory famously articulated why he had chose to “escape the Government Plantation and the Party of Disappointment” and join the party of Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass.
In 2014, Elbert Guillory would play a critical role in the defeat of Senator Mary Landrieu in his home state. Guillory filmed a speech standing in the poorest neighborhood street in Opelousas – “Academy Street” – demanding that Senator Landrieu explain why, after 18 years in the Senate, nothing had changed. The message resonated. Guillory went on to replicate similar messages in North Carolina against Sen. Kay Hagan, as well as Sen. Mark Pryor in Arkansas and finally played an instrumental role in the defeat of Michelle Nunn in Georgia.
Guillory has made numerous TV & radio appearances with the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, Mark Levin, Megyn Kelly, Alex Jones, Greta Van Sustern and Neil Cavuto. He has been featured in National Review Online, the Weekly Standard and the Wall Street Journal, to name just a few.
