People’s Party attempt to draft Jimmy Dore for President

In a stunning decision, The Movement For A People’s Party has finally announced they are thinking about running a candidate for office….in 2024. Launching a campaign to attempt to push YouTube Personality Jimmy Dore to run for President in 2024.

For those not in the know, Jimmy Dore is the host of the eponymous political commentary show. He formerly worked for The Young Turks and supported Bernie Sanders in his first Presidential Run, but shifted away from them after the 2016 campaign. One of the shifts came in electoral strategy, while TYT and Bernie proposed taking over the Democratic Party, Dore was an avid supporter of forming a new political party, which is what led him to join up with the Movement For A People’s Party.

Movement for a People’s Party, or just the People’s Party was founded on November 9th 2017 by Nick Brana. The intention was to transfer the momentum of the Bernie Sanders Campaign into a new political force to combat the duopoly. However since Bernie has denied wanting to do so, the party has gone into disarray in regards to their platform and actions of the party itself. Leading to a plethora of controversies plaguing them as they approach their 5th year of nothing, leading to some to theorize the party is merely a vanity project for Brana and Dore. I myself have compared it to the Union Party of 1936, due to them shifting from the Left to an incredibly vague interpretation of populism that has no real politics outside of self service. Not helped by this latest announcement.

Now despite the fact that the People’s Party was founded in response to how the Democrats played favoritism towards Hillary Clinton in 2016, Brana in his service as party chair had not been silent in his support of anointing Dore as their torch bearer in 2024. So much for the “People” choosing their nominee.

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

    “5th year of nothing “ is erroneous, as the party has built coalitions with labor unions, and gained ballot access in multiple states via grassroots organizing at state level.

    Peoples Party does not have ballot access.

    They just now started creating state parties, but that is just step 1 in the ballot access process. They now have to get members and petitions….Things they probably should have been doing LONG BEFORE they try to run a Prez Candidate.

    Also I haven’t seen them align with any unions, just with other groups and podcasters: half of which have turned on them.

    So nothing is pretty accurate

    Given Dore is a COVID conspiracy theorist, and other types of conspiracy theorist to boot, this will surely draw the cranks!

    And, per the post you linked to, as an ex-Green, in part over all the 2020 shenanigans, I have no use for half-libertarian (or more) Jesse Ventura either.
