People’s Party Implodes

The past couple of weeks have been interesting for the Movement For A People’s Party, many major events showing they will continue to be in a never-ending stance of attempting to be more than a footnote in the minor party scene.

First on February 11th, the many prominent official in the Virginia State Affiliate had resigned from their position, citing a disagreement over the Freedom Convoy in Canada. In a statement released by them, they cite members of the official People’s Party Slack spreading Vaccine misinformation and harassing members who bring up the convoy being fueled by White Supremacists and being denounced by Labor Groups, as the crux of their decision.

Then on February 17th, the Washington Affiliate of the Peoples Party had decided to disaffiliate with MPP, citing that despite the MPP claiming they wanted a democratic and transparent political system, the party has not lived up to said expectations and has continually attacked people who do not fall in line with party chair Nick Brana.

Then on February 19th the Florida affiliate circulated a petition to have member Sabrina Peña Young removed from her position, accusing her of being a “liberal contractors” for sharing how her 12 year old son died under the Castro administration, and they disagreed on her assessment. Sabrina would go in to say these charges were trumped up and she was truly purged because she was taking part in an investigation on Brana.

Then on February 20th, two-time Democratic Senate Candidate from West Virginia turned MPP activist Paula Jean Swearengin, announced she was resigning amid Brana purging 5 members of the National Board who were calling on Brana to be investigated, an event that has been referred to colloquially as The Sunday Purge.

And lastly on the 22nd, the contents of the investigation into Brana were made public by Status Coup, who revealed that said investigation involved Nick Brana being accused of Sexual Harassment by a female member of MPP. One of the members expelled in the Sunday Purge, Regina Clarke was in charge of the investigation and was quoted as saying “As the investigation went on, it was clear there was sexual harassment going on; for other alleged acts, there was debate on whether it was harassment or extended further.”

So when an 14 Year Old Website with that same goal says they needed new writers, I felt the need to carry this torch.

    They and there many prominent officials need to fold in behind the banners of Great Leap Forward Party and Chairman Yang. #1 Party in the USA!

    Um. What?

    It’s not the best writing. The writer was trying to say they’re always in a position of attempting to be something instead of actually becoming something.

    Interesting set of replies….

    There are no major events or prominent officials involved in any of this. It’s an obscure failure to launch of yet another of the dizzying array of obscure far left parties. Nice attempt to write it up to try to make it sound interesting or important somehow, but in light of reality descriptions like major events and prominent officials are laughable.

    Socratic Gadfly,
    Am I still banned from your blog?
    Do you know anything about the special GP Steering Committee meeting called for in Greenline in Camden, NJ, my hometown, that evidently never happened?

    “There are no major events or prominent officials involved in any of this.”

    Thats a descriptor of the ENTIRE site

  8. Ed Johnson Ed Johnson February 23, 2022

    That’s not true. Any number of articles here mention actually prominent people, as well as changing the outcome of major elections and other things which can be legitimately described as major events. Other articles here of course deal with obscure events in obscure parties, but that’s ok because that’s what the site is about. But they don’t describe those people and events as “major events,” “prominent officials ” etc.

    Major events……………….FOR THE PARTY

    Prominent officials………………………IN THE PARTY

    Did u actually need that spelled out to you, are you fucking 5?

    No, but you are treating criticism as if you were that age and throwing a tantrum. It’s not even a party, it’s an aborted attempt to create one which doesn’t serve any particular need due to the plethora of already existing leftist parties. There’s a reason why other articles here that describe similar sorts of things don’t use that kind of language. Accept the criticism or don’t, I’ve spent more than enough time on it and my point has been made already.

    What Criticism, I wrote an article about a Useless Party on a site about useless parties.

    My articles I can do whatever the fuck I want, u got articles here literally spreading misinfo about vaccines and yet ur gonna complain that I said a major official in a party does not fit into ur parameters? lol

    The MPP has made a big enough splash to be covered here, and while the site is a lot more active than it used to be, it’s not like IPR is swamped with major news stories about larger third parties.

    Brana struck me from the beginning as a shady narcissist and sleazeball, but I didn’t know about the sexual harrassment investigation or the routine purges. Way to go, Nick. You killed it.

    Why have they not made announcement yet that they are merging into Great Leap Forward Party and getting behind Chairman Yang? What is taking so long? It is past time for them to accept wise guidance and leadership from People’s Republic of China.

    “The MPP has made a big enough splash to be covered here”

    I agree. My sole disagreement was about the language used. It’s OK to disagree.
