Whatever happened to… The White Peoples Party?

Now onto a political party, that, while being a state and not a national party, it nevertheless attracted a good amount of attention at the time, being the latest attempt to qualify a white supremacist political party and it’s alleged candidates on the ballot.

The White Peoples Party was started in 2005 by members of the Las Vegas National Alliance (later re-named the National Vanguard), in Nevada. The WPP’s members and all of its state officers were composed mainly of Las Vegas residents active in the National Alliance. Michael O’Sullivan, a ex-felon and member of the Alliance was the Chairman and main organizer of the party. Michael later was accused of sexual misconduct by several women who stayed at one of his unlicensed halfway houses that he ran. A interview with Michael only seemed to bring out his and his party’s unappealing views and character. The Party also, unsurprisingly, bans Blacks and Jews in membership. The WPP used the illegal-immigration debacle as a attempt to reach out to the mainstream and get their voice heard, attracting some local media attention, including the Las Vegas Sun newspaper.

The Party’s platform ranged from dividing the Las Vegas School District to declaring the White race an ‘endangered species’, the latter, which was advocated on leaflets that were passed around by WPP and National Alliance activists. Some of the party leaflets were later given to two non-white residents that were accompanied with dead animals.

The WPP filed with the Nevada Secretary of State to qualify as a political party and to qualify state and congressional candidates for the ballot in Nevada. Reportedly, the WPP collected close to 2,000 signatures mainly at gun shows and music concerts, however this number is disputed, as no signatures were ever turned in. The Party also drew a considerable amount of hostility at some of its signature gathering events and also was closely watched by the Anti-Defamation League and the Southern Poverty Law Center, quickly listing them as a hate group.

While the White Peoples Party was mostly active in the southern part of Nevada, and was influential in the growth of skinhead and other supremacist groups in that region, it was reported that the party was involved in cooperation with the neo-nazi National Socialist Movement around Reno and Fallon in passing out flyers and recruitment.

In the end, however, the WPP produced no candidates at all for the 2006 elections and failed to qualify for ballot access, even though the WPP strived to collect 3,000+ signatures more then needed to gain ballot status. The Party also stopped updating their website months ago, and today, no longer has a website anymore! It is assumed that the reason for the party’s downfall is because of the legal woes and in-fighting that plagued the National Alliance, and the National Vanguard, which was the backbone of support and activism for the White Peoples Party.
In a way, the WPP can be regarded merely as the political wing of the Vanguard, that not only used the same symbol, but also largely played on the issue of immigration to attract support for its cause, yet still encountered strong opposition and afterwards, failure, in becoming a viable political party in Nevada, and eventually on a national scale. Even the Las Vegas National Vanguard itself has not updated their website since February of this year.
The White Peoples Party has already experienced its rise to fame, and its downfall; it will no longer be a blip on the radar screen due to the watchful eye of anti-racist organizations and the intelligence of the average Nevadan that knows better then to associate with a party that denies the Holocaust and has a criminal & potential sex-offender as its Chairman. Only the Independent American, Libertarian, and Green Parties, which shunned the WPP, are worthy of support and votes of those Nevadans that buck the sheepish two-party trend.

Minorities and Leftists in the Silver State can sleep better tonight, knowing that such a excuse of a political party will no longer be a nightmare to them.

    Steve, here we go again, our least favorite Golden State hot head bible thumper KKKollege student is straying from objectivity YET AGAIN!

  2. Trent Hill Says:

    Objectivity on the White People’s Party? Not sure why he would do that.

  3. Fred C. Says:

    ...or why he’d be called a “KKKollege student” after writing a negative piece on racists.

  4. Cody Quirk Says:

    Hey Don,

    Hows your Party doing?

    Dumbass!

    That’s why I don’t bother calling pathedic losers like you, I’d rather serve in Dondero’s campaign then with pathedic retards that can’t run a political party.

    BTW I’m not a college student! Go suck on your foot!

  5. Cody Quirk Says:

    In fact Don, you’re no different then the people I criticised in this article here, your IQ’s are the same anyway, both of you run parties into the ground!

  6. matt Says:

    I attended a White People’s Party the other night. The beer was cheap and the music was terrible, but it was still far superior to the one Cody outlined.

    I’m willing to bet it had more chicks, as well.

  7. G.E. Says:

    Why are you so biased against White Nationalism, Cody? Jeez, can’t you give the WPP a fair shake!!? (joke)

    But honestly, why should only “minorities and leftists” be glad the party is gone? You seem to be glad the party is gone, and you are not a minority or leftist (at least I don’t think so).

  8. Don ald R. Lake Says:

    Our point exactly, Frederick and Cody!

    Out line their racism and corrupt via the facts not the verbage!

    =Good point. Nevada has enough third parties, I don’t want to see any more, even if this WPP doesn’t have a chance in Hell.

  10. Eric Dondero Says:

    Two photos now up on Little Green Footballs of Ron Paul meeting with notorious Nazi StormTrooper Front President Don Black in south Florida back in September. It was released late last night.

  11. Trent Hill Says:

    Dondero is right. There are pictures,from after the Value Voters Debate, of Paul with Don Black of Stormfront.

    However—it looks as if he has no idea who Don Black is.
    Besides,read your own bullshit articles Dondero,Black claims, “He isn’t one of us,but we support his politics.”

  12. Cody Quirk Says:

    At least Dondero makes a better politician then Don ald R. Lake!

    LOL!
