In the last two years, women in the United States have seen an incredibly alarming upswing in laws, votes and measures meant to restrict their access to cancer screenings, family planning, birth control and abortions, leaving many of those affected feeling shut out and silenced in the process.
Whether it’s the kind of sexist and crushing comments made by Rush Limbaugh about university student Sandra Fluke, or the attempts by US law makers to strip away funding state by state to organizations like Planned Parenthood or even the creation of laws that would force a woman to undergo an invasive and unnecessary transvaginal probe, one thing cannot be ignored any longer: there IS a war on women in our midst.
We’ve thought about this, and we have to agree. There is a war on women. And Jeromie Williams is leading it. That is, if you ask Kim Johnston or the women at Operation Sled Dogs, who have sought restraining orders and police protection against the Misogynist-in-Chief Williams, after he stalked, harassed, and threatened them, their children, and even their pets.
Here are ten ways Jeromie Williams makes war on women. Count down with us, or suggest your own in the comments:
10. Jeromie Williams Cyberstalks and Harasses Women Online
Late last year, Jeromie demanded that Kim Johnston send him “Freebies” (namely, free “Dirty Boy” facewash products) from her company, so that he could auction them off at a party on December 15, 2011 to raise money for “Carry Your Message,” another scam… er, I mean, for “developing the critical workshops and artistic networks required to spread the inspiring message of positive change.” That is, if there’s any money left after Jeromie buys lunch.
Anyway, there was one small problem: Kim Johnston never agreed to send any products. Although Jeromie’s CYM press release listed Kim’s company as a “leading corporation” that was “sponsoring” his event, this was all part of a months-long cyber-stalking, harassment, and extortion campaign. When she didn’t send the products, Jeromie attacked her savagely, calling her a “greedy bitch” and a “broke has been.” He slandered her in false Examiner stories, and he disparaged her company and her products on Twitter (yes, the very same products that he wanted her to send him for free).
9. Jeromie Williams Makes Violent Threats Against Women and their Families
On January 6, 2012, Jeromie bombarded Kim’s e-mail account with more than a dozen threatening e-mails, all from Jeromie’s gmail account (all in the span of a little over an hour). “[M]y ticket to Boulder is booked and I am coming for you,” he warned. “I’m coming to Colorado. I know where you are.” (“I can pinpoint your address within 50 feet.”)
He also threatened Kim’s young sons with a “campaign” of terror: “Their lives are going to be fucked because of you. Ab-so-lute-ly fucked.” And: “I know where your sons are…” As if that wasn’t enough, he also threatened Kim’s beloved dogs: “You have to go back to Boulder at some point … your dogs are there … I am coming.” (He also threatened me: “First you go down, then Topher is next. I know where both of you are, and you’re both going to get it.“)
A few short months later, after scamming a sled dog rescue group out of thousands of dollars, Jeromie was back at it, threatening women over the phone, and in voicemail messages. Once again, he told the women “You’re going down” and “I know exactly where you are.” That’s his modus operandi, it seems. And with few exceptions, the threats are all directed at women.
8. Jeromie Williams Calls Women Abhorrent Names
In the poem recited in Jeromie’s video, we are told “Keep your salacious, aggressive, sexist insults to yourself. I’m not listening.”
But speaking of sock puppets…
7. Jeromie Williams Impersonates Women Online, Often to Attack Other (Real) Women
- Alisha Wicklund – Exposed as a sock puppet on this blog, the Alisha account was used to threaten Kim’s green card, and even the immigration status of her sons. Her threats to use IP addresses to track Kim to her “general location” were later echoed by Jeromie himself.
- Shelly Comeon – As described on this blog, Jeromie claimed that Shelly created the Facebook group 100,000 strong to ban Nathan Kotylak from the Canada Olympic team, which he then covered as a “neutral” writer at the Examiner.com. The only problem is that Shelly does not exist. Jeromie created and administered the group for six months, while covering its activities as though he was a neutral, outside reporter, not the one making all the decisions.
- Paula Neufeld – Like Jeromie, described Kim as a terrorist and warned everyone not to speak to her, and to block her. “She” also called Kim a “cunt” and other vicious names.
- Tammy Gartner – Again, defended Jeromie, and accused Kim of trying to “further her own agenda.”
- “Deborah” – Urged others to donate to Jeromie’s ChipIn accounts (“Is there someone that we can trust to do the right thing with the donations to send it too? … Jeromie would be my pick.”)
Speaking of Sarah Palin…
6. Jeromie Williams Enjoys Killing Women With Chainsaws In Sick Video Games
Jeromie has described Sarah Palin as a “venomous bobble head” who is “flooding the airwaves with corporate sponsored conservative bulls***.”
But no worries, I guess, as long as Jeromie can fantasize about chopping up women in politics whenever he disagrees with them.
5. Jeromie Williams Interferes in the Investigation of Serious Crimes Against Women
As we have reported previously, Jeromie’s articles for the Examiner.com often involved events that never happened, people who don’t exist, and even supposed witnesses to serious crimes who do not exist, at least not outside of the imagination of Jeromie Williams.
One particularly egregious case involved a serious assault during the Vancouver riot last June. A 17-year-old girl named Chelsea Bossons had her jaw broken by an East Indian man, but Jeromie Williams made up a mysterious witness who implicated her boyfriend. We can only assume he did this to generate traffic to his (pay-per-visit) Examiner articles, collect more accolades like this, and to con his way back onto Ezra Levant’s show on the Sun News Network (now featured prominently on Jeromie’s CV on his site).
To say nothing of the impact on this young woman, her family, her boyfriend, his family, and so on, this apparently caused great trouble for the Vancouver Police Department and Crown prosecutors in British Columbia, who were stuck chasing phantom witnesses instead of the thug who actually attacked Ms. Bossons so brutally.
4. Jeromie Williams Vows to Picket Breast Cancer Research Fundraising Events
As we have previously noted, Jeromie has pledged to “picket” the next Pink Ribbon event in Montreal. He is apparently outraged that these events, which promote breast cancer research, education, advocacy, health services and social support programs, are “not inclusive of men, transgendered and minorities.”
He is just demonstrably wrong, of course. As usual. In fact, the Susan G. Komen Foundation includes and benefits people of all races and genders through their research.
Some men wear pink ties throughout the year “to raise awareness, inspire involvement and spark conversations about the importance of breast health.” The Foundation even sells pink handguns, which have proven popular with gun enthusiasts, as well as innocent women who have been threatened by creepy cyberstalkers like Jeromie Williams.
3. Jeromie Williams Steals From Women
Though we are not certain, we suspect that Jeromie’s various ChipIn scams have disproportionately affected women. To our knowledge, for example, women run the Operation Sled Dog rescue group, and they went into significant debt in order to rescue 25 Huskies from a dog sledding company owner. When Jeromie embezzled $1,800 from the Pet Pardons ChipIn accounts set up for OSD, he was stealing from them.
He later slandered the women on his blog, accusing them of killing the dogs, or breeding the dogs, or who knows what else. Just more of the same, really.
Earlier he apparently embezzled up to $1,177 from the women at the Linda Blair World Heart Foundation, an organization dedicated to rescuing animals in California, and up to $544 from the women at the Humane Society International in Canada.
2. Jeromie Williams Was An Internet Pornographer
While Jeromie would have you believe that he’s an anti-pornography crusader, he worked as a “Social Media Specialist” at Playboy Plus Entertainment Inc., according to his LinkedIn page. We gather he didn’t last long there.
Still, Jeromie Williams, who once complained about inappropriate images showing up on Facebook walls and news feeds in his Examiner articles, had a job where he posted those very same inappropriate images to Facebook [WARNING: Last link NSFW]. Not to mention that Jeromie also maintains an active Stickam account. This site, which the New York Times has described as “icky”, is notorious as a playground for internet predators and pedophiles.
Of course, many women’s rights organizations argue that hardcore pornography is degrading and disrespectful to women, and lowers them back to a time when they were looked upon as mere sex objects.
Speaking of which…
1. Jeromie Williams Blogs About Shutting Young Women Up With Giant Black Penises
This one wins the disgusting misogynist of the year prize, I think.
As our friend Wray Smith would say, quod erat demonstrandum.
When you consider that Jeromie also has a history of calling young boys “faggy,” and attacking aboriginal Canadians, you can see the evidence is really starting to pile up: Jeromie Williams is a disgusting, thieving, misogynist bigot. No reputable organization would have anything to do with him: The Examiner, The Gaily, even Playboy… all have cut ties with him.
Incredibly, however, Jeromie continues to serve as Director of Operations at Pet Pardons Canada, despite the fact that we have posted evidence that he was breaking the organization’s rules, and stealing from various ChipIn accounts. We have also told them about all his other outrageous behaviour, some of which is listed above.
