Jeromie Williams Lashes Out At Former Employer (Again)

GailyBack in January, we reported that Jeromie Williams disparaged his former employers at the Examiner.com after he was terminated for fabricating events, people, and even supposed witnesses to serious crimes in his articles (see my original post for further details). Amazingly, he compared the Examiner to a Third World sweat shop.

Today we noticed that Jeromie has continued to disparage his former employers, this time taking aim at The Gaily, a website for Canadian gays and lesbians, where he was contributing editor until March. The website disassociated itself from him entirely after he criminally harassed, stalked and made death threats against Kim Johnson and her teenaged boys, using homophobic epithets.

He tweeted to Erika Jahn, Executive Editor of  The Gaily, that:

The hashtag #cowardsgossip presumably was meant to imply that Ms. Jahn, and the rest of Jeromie’s former friends and colleagues at The Gaily, are all cowards for talking about him (and all his disgraceful, and often illegal, activities, no doubt) behind his back.

Well, we say, kudos to Ms. Jahn and The Gaily for recognizing who the real coward is here (if a bit belatedly), and severing all ties with him accordingly.

We would also like to issue a friendly warning to Hugh Hefner. If it’s true that Jeromie once “pulled the strings behind the scenes for Playboy.com” at “Team Heffner” [sic.], then, given Jeromie’s well-documented history of lashing out at former employers, Mr. Hefner might want to watch his back. Of course, it’s not true, as Jeromie also has a well-documented history of embellishing on his resume. Presumably if Jeromie was actually on “Team Hefner,” he would know how to spell the man’s name.

Still, it’s good advice for anyone to watch their back around Jeromie Williams.

“The Gaily” Removes Jeromie Williams as Contributing Editor

GailyWe received confirmation today from Erika Jahn, Executive Editor of  The Gaily, a website for Canadian gays and lesbians, that Jeromie Williams has been removed from his former position as the contributing editor of the site, which is apparently disassociating itself from him entirely. Ms. Jahn has confirmed that Jeromie’s “work has been removed entirely from our site.”

No further details were provided, but we speculate that Ms. Jahn terminated their relationship on account of some combination of the following:

  1. Homophobic Slurs against teenaged boys;
  2. Criminal Harassment and Death Threats against women and teenaged boys;
  3. Fake Stories about Fake Witnesses, Fake Sources, Fake Interviews, Fake Plea Bargains, Fake People etc.;
  4. ChipIn Scams; not to mention…
  5. Yet more outright lies.

Then again, maybe Jeromie quit The Gaily, like he “quit” the Examiner, because they were paying him “sweatshop wages”

Socialist Fraudster Creates Fake Sarah Palin Twitter, Facebook Accounts

Jeromie WilliamsWarning: The Twitter account “Fire In My Belly” (@ElectPalin2012) and the Facebook account Elect Palin 2012 are fake. They are run by a Canadian socialist, Jeromie Williams, not Sarah Palin supporters.

Jeromie Williams, a socialist and “Occupy Wall Street” activist, who has a well-documented history of deception using fake online accounts, has created fake Twitter and Facebook accounts for a fake “Sarah Palin 2012″ group, likely in an effort to make her supporters appear extreme, racist, homophobic, or generally bigoted.

We have obtained evidence that Williams, a Rachel Maddow-obsessed editor at The Gaily, has:

We believe that he was very likely preparing to use these accounts to create a malicious smear of Palin and her supporters, reminiscent of Tea Party infiltration attempts such as the now-defunct CrashTheTeaParty.org.

Jeromie would have been able to use his platform as a writer at the Examiner.com to spread his false-flag-style smears of Palin, but, fortunately, two weeks ago, on January 5th, he was removed from his position there after this blog exposed his history of fabricating events, people, and even witnesses in his articles for months in order to get on TV, among other reasons.

Briefly, yesterday night, the account @ElectPalin2012 tweeted one of our team members, Topher Mackenzie, to complain about this blog exposing Jeromie’s disgusting behaviour. However, Topher quickly became suspicious, noting that:

  1. Though the account was created in February 2011, it had only 22 tweets before yesterday, almost half of which appear to have been retweets of the official account @SarahPalinUSA from April 8, 2011. Adding seven more tweets yesterday, fully a quarter of the account’s tweets are about this blog, which (until today) had not mentioned Sarah Palin a single time;
  2. It would be incredible for authentic Sarah Palin supporters to devote so much time to defending Jeromie Williams, a Canadian socialist and fraud artist who apparently enjoys decapitating her in the “Tea Party Zombies Must Die” video game;
  3. The person who tweeted from the account used language you might expect from a Canadian socialist desperately trying to imitate how he imagines American Republicans must talk, such as:
    • “Jeepers”;
    • “You’re only draining your soul”;
    • “Go with God”;
    • “We … wanted to … council you on going with God”; and, of course,
    • “what would Jesus do?”
  4. The person who tweeted from the account claimed to represent a “whole group” but, when asked, refused to elaborate on who was in the group; and,
  5. The person who tweeted from the account made a number of factually inaccurate statements to try to defend Jeromie Williams.

Dirty BoySpecifically, on point #5, Topher notes that the account
tweeted that:

The entire @ElectPalin2012-@TopherMackenzie conversation may be viewed here. As you may also note, prior to this conversation, the @ElectPalin2012 account had been inactive for over four months, since September 7, 2011.

Background

Trust No One

As we mentioned above, Jeromie appears to have cultivated quite a vast network of social media identities, many of them false, fake “sock puppet” accounts designed to deceive people for various reasons, but mainly to try to swindle money from honest people, or to threaten and harass anyone who dares to criticise his work, or question his sources.

Wikipedia, which has had an enormous problem with sock puppetry (fake accounts) among certain editors, notes that there are many varieties of “sock puppet”:

  • Standard Sock Puppets exist to create the illusion of more support for a particular position than actually exists.
  • Neutrality Sock Puppets are created to pose as a neutral commentator, when in fact they are there to advance one side of a dispute. Alternatively, the sock puppet can act as a partisan, to allow the original account to appear neutral by comparison.
  • Circumvention Sock Puppets exist to Circumvent Policies or Sanctions, or in this case, the criminal law.
    • Stephen Equality, Alisha Wicklund, Paula Neufeld and Shelly Comeon, all of whom sent threatening, obscene or harassing messages to Kim Johnston, her three sons, their schools, employers and/or business associates, and/or Topher Mackenzie (in addition to Jeromie himself, qua Jeromie). Most of these messages constitute intimidation, if not uttering threats or criminal harassment, which are illegal under the Criminal Code of Canada.
  • Trust-seeking Sock Puppets exist to develop a position of trust for the original person or account.
  • Strawman Sock Puppets argue one side of an issue in a deliberately irrational or offensive fashion, to sway opinion to another side.
  • Sleeper Sock Puppets are old, unused accounts, suddenly revived to take a position in a new dispute.
  • Piggybacking Sock Puppets refer to the use of another person’s account, with their consent, for the purposes of advancing your position in a dispute. This could include a friend, acquaintance, or relative.
  • Meatpuppets are actual friends, acquaintances or relatives, who have been persuaded to enter a dispute for the purpose of supporting one side.

We thank you for reading and urge you, should you ever have the misfortune of dealing with Jeromie Williams, to follow the advice of Deep Throat: Trust No One!

LGBT Website “The Gaily” Defends Editor’s Homophobic Slurs, Death Threats, and Stalking of Young Boys


Gaily
We were disappointed today as Erika Jahn (@DearSimone), co-founder and executive editor of The Gaily, has churlishly dismissed our concerns about her contributing editor, Jeromie Williams. Despite the fact that we provided her with evidence that Mr. Williams has harassed, stalked and threatened Kim Johnston and her three young boys — one of whom is only 16 years oldusing homophobic slurs (such as “faggy”), and that Montreal police are now investigating, Ms. Jahn has deleted all links to this blog, as well as our simple question “Is Jeromie Williams still a writer for The Gaily?”, and blocked us from posting on The Gaily’s Facebook group.

Since Jeromie is still listed as a contributor on The Gaily’s site, we must assume that The Gaily is willing to tolerate:

  1. Homophobic Slurs against teenaged boys;
  2. Criminal Harassment and Death Threats against women and teenaged boys;
  3. Fake Stories about Fake Witnesses, Fake Sources, Fake Interviews, Fake Plea Bargains, Fake People etc.;
  4. ChipIn Scams; not to mention…
  5. Yet more outright lies.

Surely this is not consistent with “The New Gay Agenda”… Or is it?

You may notice that Jeromie is no longer employed at Examiner.com after we brought #3 above to their attention. However, when we informed Ms. Jahn about Jeromie’s recent disgusting (and criminal) behaviour (#1-#5), this was her response:

“Hey, We don’t like this post. Please remove it. You spamming of our page has been reported to Facebook and will continue to be as long as it continues.”

Kim Johnston was rightly outraged at this response, asking how Ms. Jahn could possibly be so cavalier in dismissing such serious complaints regarding one of her editors “threatening my sons lives and calling them FAGS. I believe it is an unacceptable term at any time — let alone by an editor of The Gaily. Miss Jahn — your emails about your dislike of my post should be going directly to Jeromie Williams who made the statements (in writing) along with a note saying YOU’RE FIRED.”

Interestingly, Topher Mackenzie noted that Ms. Jahn’s strategy, of dismissing this page as “spam,” appears to have been coordinated with Jeromie Williams himself. Jeromie, who was initially quite happy to link to this blog, has more recently condemned it as “spam” as well, as more of his behaviour has been exposed here.

What makes this all the more incredibly disappointing is that Ms. Jahn, who holds a theology degree from Harvard University in religion, ethics, politics/women, and gender and sexuality, and is also the president of an organisation dedicated to “combat homophobia,” must have some vague idea that it is unethical to harass, stalk and threaten young boys, and call them “faggy.” She must know that death threats and homophobic slurs do not advance the gay agenda. Or does she?

If you would like to ask her yourself, please be civil and direct your questions to her here or here, or e-mail her at erika.jahn@caeoquebec.org, or tweet her at @DearSimone.

UPDATE: Cristina Marrero (marreroCs3@gmail.com), a “Queer as Folk” writer based in Pensacola, Florida, has responded to us by claiming that since she helped Jeromie once by designing the logo for his $20 “Hug a Gay Day” T-shirts, “[our] ‘evidence’ is probably photoshoped.”

Our resident logician Wray Smith is still slapping his forehead in horror and disbelief at this incredible display of illogic.

UPDATE 2 (March 13): The Gaily has disassociated itself from Jeromie Williams entirely.
