Jerome Segal to run for President under Bread and Roses Party

American Philosopher, Political activist, President of the Jewish Peace Lobby, and 2018 Democratic Maryland Senate Candidate. Jerome Segal has announced his candidacy for President in 2020 under the Bread and Roses banner.

The Bread and Roses Party, founded in 2018, identifies itself as “socialistic in its ideals” and “open to New Socialists and Non-Socialist alike.” It isn’t poised to try and rival the two major parties, but rather seeks to inject, through campaigns, new ideas, new policies and new leaders.”

In response to the Spoiler Myth, they have chosen not to run candidates in Swing States.

    Good catch. Jerome Segal is definitively worth following:

    “Segal was part of a Jewish delegation that met with leaders of the Palestinian Liberation Organization, including Yasser Arafat, in 1987. Segal, the founder of the 5,000 member strong (a figure that includes over 400 rabbis) Jewish Peace Lobby has written books relating to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, such as Negotiating Jerusalem and Creating the Palestinian State. Another notable book of Segal’s is a collection of philosophical essays dealing with his perception on the economy and moral psychology. Segal challenged Ben Cardin in the 2018 Democratic U.S. Senate primary in Maryland, coming in third place behind Chelsea Manning with 20,027 votes, or 3.55% of the vote.”

    Also, speaking of candidates on the “left-wing” political spectrum, there’s a page created a few days ago urging Cynthia McKinney to seek the Libertarian Party’s presidential nomination:

    Adam Kokesh has signaled his support for this draft effort:

    Hey Krzysztof, maybe you mean well, but it’s probably not the best idea to recommend the Turner Dairies to Robert Milnes or to encourage his support for the Pittsburgh Synagogue shooter.

    Perhaps McKinney could select Bob Barr to be her running mate. They seem very close. 😉

    William,

    Clarification: I NEVER encouraged support for Robert Bowers. Ever. I’ll screenshot the emails proving so. I specifically said when he wanted me to interview that guy that I condemn what he did. I said earlier that I want to be as far away as possible from the Daily Stormer crowd as I possibly can.

    As far as the Turner Diaries is concerned, I don’t know why I mentioned that to him. I really don’t. I talked with Robert Milnes on the phone, and I should have made clear as I did in my last email to him ( maybe not clearly enough) that I condemn what Bowers did and really see no point in conducting an interview with him.

    I signed on to the Non Aggression Principle at the August 6th, 2019 meeting of the Libertarian Party of Chicago.

    I have enough stuff to worry about, now I’m just tangling myself in more spiderwebs for no reason. Jesus Christ.

    When I asked her about Barr she seemed to have a crush on him. I asked at a press conference as a reporter for IPR what she would say to Libertarians who were not happy with Barr and might consider voting for her and made it clear I was in that position myself. She managed to do nothing except talk about how great she thought Barr is. She was downrighting gushing about him, it was embarrassing.

    Then of course Barr said he could not be “seen on a stage with people like Cynthia McKinney.” Draw your own conclusions about what that might mean.

    In response to the Spoiler Myth, they have chosen not to run candidates in Swing States.

    This statement contradicts their web site mission statement:

    OUR PRACTICAL AGENDA APPROACH
    Electoral Party: Unlike some Socialist organizations, Bread and Roses is explicitly directed at electoral politics. There are several reasons for this, including the obvious, that in a democracy it is through winning elections that the ability to affect public policy is attained.

    If electoral politics is your explicit means, then you seek out swing states(to force the parties to take your message into account), not shy away from them.

    Well when you’re a Third Party Candidate you either got to deny The Spoiler Myth or run to exploit it (Evan McMullin).

    The Bread and Roses Party is trying to acknowledge the Spoiler Concerns and trying to curb it the best they can.

    It won’t work cause they’ll be called a spoiler anyways

    Seems odd because I thought there was a fairly active and openly socialist Green Party in Maryland. Kudos to Segal–he appears to want to talk about important foreign policy and public planning issues that may be too controversial even for Greens.

    Idk what to think of McKinney as a Libertarian Party candidate. I’m paranoid of Facebook pages like this being alt-right trolling and/or propaganda efforts, so I’m skeptical unless McKinney announces something.

    I could see Trump fans pushing McKinney as a strategy to weaken the Democrats in 2020, but that could backfire if McKinney were to pick up steam. Of course, it’s highly unlikely she’d actually win the LP nomination but she could argue she’s the best qualified or most electable or whatever.

    As far as I know Adam Kokesh is the only one pushing McKinney, I don’t really know why but either way I want her to try for the Georgia Special Senate Race in 2020.

    I don’t know much about Segal outside of what I put in the article, but I assume his particular brand of Socialist like politics was not represented by a political party…
