White People’s Party

A new political party is being organized in Nevada. Named the White People’s Party, it has already caused a stir by trying to limit membership to whites only.

From The Las Vegas Sun:

The Republican and Democratic parties “pander to the minorities,” says Michael O’Sullivan, chairman of the board of directors of the party, which will not allow Jews or minorities to join.

Allen Lichtenstein, counsel to the ACLU of Nevada, said there is nothing illegal about creating this political party but federal and state law will prohibit them from keeping out minorities and Jews.

“It is not going to fly,” said Lichtenstein. “It (the political party) has to be open to all qualified voters.” It is not a private organization.

The White Peoples Party, Lichtenstein said, has a right to espouse what it wants but “it has no right to discriminate to keep people out of the party.”

The constitution of the party says: “We as representatives of the white race hereby declare that all policies and decisions to be made shall be governed and decided by whether it is good for our people, non-Jewish people of wholly European descent.

“In each case of every decision to be made, it shall be judged from ‘Is it good for the white race?’ “

The party apparently plans to field candidates in 2006.

    If they are discriminating against Jews and Blacks, then why would it even be an issue as to wether or not they can reject minorities? None will attempt to join!

    I guess maybe it’s a problem if a large gorup of activist minorities tried to take over the party for the express purpose of, effectively, voting it down. Why they would bother, since I doubt a party like this could have much success, is beyond me, though.

    I think a party like this is long over due. For decades, but especially from the 1990’s to present day, we have watched politicians and political parties cater to special interest groups of “minorities” and homosexuals. I believe many Americans of White European decent share the same ideals as those founding the party have outlined. I’ve met hundreds of co-workers, friends, aquaintances, etc. that are not necessarily racist, but are fed up with illegal immigrantion, the growing acceptance of homosexuality, and their vote not counting to mend such issues (i.e prop. 187, California.) Maybe it’s time for a white political party to surface that isn’t afraid of being “politaclly incorrect.”

  4. Austin Cassidy Says:

    What about the America First Party? They address those issues without the overt racism.

  5. Fred C. Says:

    I guess the difference there is that an explicitly White political party would include the nationalist issues but would seek to represent whites exclusively, as this party is trying to do.

    Don’t dismiss a bunch of minorities jumping in to disrupt the party, many anti-racists groups have “infiltrated” racist organizations with the goal of botching their activities, provoking violence etc. A political party would be the easiest vehicle for such an attack, since full participation rights would simply be an issue of registration into the party and then voting to nominate hostile candidates or leadership.

    Why would anyone want to have a party with no chicken wings? lol

    Doesnt the Klan have a political party/branch now? And if so..why not just join it instead of making another one. People are always rushing to start a new party when if they would just look around there is probably about 20 they can join. Its like the green and socialist parties..and all the quasi-libertarian parties that instead of joining the established LP and moving in solidarity they create scores of parties with more or less the same principles. Why start a party when one with basically your ideology exist. If all social democrats/democratyic socialist joined one party (instead of a half dozen parties and groups they have now) and if all those who lean libertarian joined the LP maybe an alternative party could make some headway. Splintering what little support that the fringe ideologies have between more than one party is a sure way to ensure the ideology will remain in the fringe. Sorry for the rant…

    Yes, the Knights Party.

    Don’t spread this logic. The more splintered racist parties are, the better.

    Um, there are some huge differences between the Socialist Party USA and the Libertarian Party. (Also, technically, the SPUSA are much older than the LP.)

    The Green Party of the United States (not to be confused with the more Leftist “Green Party USA”) is younger than the LP, and is in between the SPUSA and the LP ideologically. Being Libertarian-oriented myself, I share some opinions with the GPUS, for example opposition to corporate subsidies, pro-free speech, pro-legalisation of drugs, etc. But there are some major differences that I have with the GPUS (and even more with the G/GPUSA). For example, I oppose having a national healthcare system.

    If you want to make an example of a party that has the same principles as the LP, a prime example would be the Personal Choice Party. In fact, the Presidential candidate they ran in 2004 had previously tried to run for President as a Libertarian.

    This all being said, before I learned of the LP, I had strong leanings to the GPUS, because of the positions I shared with it. I would suggest that anyone out there that’s considering joined the GPUS also take the time to consider joining the LP. I don’t think either party is perfect, but it is worth considering.
