Larry Elder’s Testimony In Congress On Reparations – Speaking Truth To Power

Larry Elder wears many hats; lawyer, Television host, best-selling author, political pundit, guest speaker, and talk radio host, just to review a few. It is often said he,” slays dragons and topples sacred cows using facts, common sense, and a ready wit.” Last Wednesday, Elder appeared in front of a House Committee on Slavery Reparations (Zoom call) and battled ignorance with reasoned analysis and “speaking truth to power.”

Labeled as a firebrand Libertarian most of his adult life, Elder shifted his political party registration from “Decline to State” (which, in California, means independent) to the Republican Party. He continues to support the libertarian principles of limited government and maximum personal and financial responsibility. Elder’s focus on addressing ” race hustlers,” and liberal social engineering as a negative force on black communities has been fierce. He has also established many philanthropic charities to address addiction, education, homelessness, and employment in inner-city communities.

Elder spoke eloquently during his testimony about his late father, World War II Veteran, Randolph Elder, who posthumously received the highest civilian award Congress can grant, the Congressional Gold Medal.

“Very few people could have had a life harder than my father. My father was 13 years — born in 1915 — when he was kicked out of his house by his mother, Athens, Georgia, Jim Crow, at the beginning of the Great Depression. 

The man walked down the street, did whatever he could. Ultimately, he became a Pullman porter on the trains, which was the largest private employer of blacks in those days. [He] traveled all over the world, became a marine, was one of the first black marines, a Montford Point marine.

And my dad always told my brothers and me the following: Hard work wins, you get out of life what you put into it, you cannot control the outcome, but you are 100 percent in control of the effort, and before you complain about what other people did to you, go to the nearest mirror and say to yourself, “What could I have done to change the outcome?”

And my dad always told us this, “No matter how hard you work, no matter how good you are, sooner or later, bad things will happen to you. How you respond to those bad things will tell your mother and me if we raised a man.

And my father always said this about the Democrat Party, “They want to give you something for nothing, and when you’re trying to get something for nothing, you almost always end up getting nothing for something.”

Please watch the entire video of his testimony and affirmation of beliefs:

When his father passed Elder wrote a brief synopsis about the profound influence his Dad had on his world view and race, read here. Larry would go on to write a brilliant and stunning book about his father as well. Larry Elder co-wrote the movie “Uncle Tom – An Oral History of the American Black Conservative” and it was released in 2020. This movie gives voice to the other side of the liberal’s equation on race identity politics.

Larry Elder has been a powerful voice for conservative principles and, additionally, for black Americans struggling to advance past victimhood over the decades. He had a compelling interview in 2017 when he sat down with reformed liberal, Dave Rubin for The Rubin Report – enjoy.

America needs more role models like Larry Elder for the next generation and beyond. It is the Right Wire Report hope that the new conservative coalition emerging out of the ashes of the GOP establishment and bonding to the MAGA movement is full of them.

"The simple step of a courageous individual is to not take part in the lie. One word of truth outweighs the world." Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

I was born and raised in the enigma known as "The Big Easy." There, rooted along the banks of the great Mississippi River between the creeping bayou and Lake Pontchartrain, I was conscripted on all things pertaining to human nature.  I am the quintessential southern woman, that is to say, I defy most could never accurately define what that label truly represents.  Brined below sea level where one respects; the haunts lingering about, the force of storm surge, the ethos of Mardi Gras, and the sanctity of generational family-I know what it is to belong to an organically diverse culture.

Early on in life, my career path serpentined and led to brief stints of living abroad in Europe as I indulged my passions for painting, musical theater, and the culinary arts. My young experiences evolved my purpose and honed my intuitive skills and I became a Medical Professional specializing in mental health with a focus on child/adolescent needs. After living decades in NOLA, and after hurricane  Katrina unearthed the realities of modern-day inner cities, I made the pivotal decision to relocate to where my family and I spent our summers in a quest to find security and civility in my life.

High up on one of the "grandfather mountains" I now perch in a Smoky mountain community in East Tennessee. Although, I would not trade my formative years in Louisiana, unfortunately,  that era of  America  is  no longer obtainable in the times we live - changing course was the best decision "Evah!"

I am a warrior  for freedom and truth , steeped in my ancestral history ,I am constantly reminded that stillness and introspection expands the mind and heart to possess a more nuanced understanding of all things in our internal and external world. We are all destined to bash ourselves against the rotted cultural rocks of humanity's unraveling until we recognize that a shared moral tone is essential for a free society. A healthy culture is one comprised of many unique people who offer shading and depth to the experience of living, yet all choose to accept basic truths that bind us all together-a societal moral tone. Intolerance  , censorship, intersectionality, cancel culture, apathy ,and ignorance will only groom oppression and tyranny.  Critical thought, differentiation, and dissent is your individual right granted not by government -and must always be protected, championed, and defended.
