Jamie Kay – The Scourge of Socialist Sunday
#SocialistSunday was born out of the collective grief of socialists following Corbyn’s electoral defeat and their fears of a Tory Brexit. It was a rallying cry for socialists to unite, to fight the rising fascism stirred up by the Tories and their right-wing media buddies. Sadly #SocialistSundays has been infiltrated by the far right and the biggest offender is a faux socialist, Jamie Kay.

I was new to Twitter. It felt good to see so many socialists standing together. Most had BLM in their Twitter handles, it seemed like many were starting to see the gravity of our situation. ‘Follow back’ was the call but I started to notice that many didn’t. Not that it mattered to me, I didn’t join Twitter for the followers. I’m still surprised I made it to 100.
Like most things, the novelty soon wore off. I’d blindly followed back a bunch of people whose politics were far removed from mine. Being a communist, I’m used to being a minority voice in socialist circles, but it soon became clear that many #SocialistSunday types were centrists. I did some pruning as Starmer (Kieth) laid into the Labour left and I was pummelled by daily warnings that our failure to get behind the forensic knight would be a ‘vote for the Tories.’ All to be expected, I guess. What I didn’t expect was for Black people engaging with #SocialistSunday, to be subject to the kind of vile racist attacks more commonly found on the far right.
Like most people, I became acquainted with Jamie Kay through #SocialistSundays. He seemed like most socialists, supported Black Lives Matter, anti-Brexit, anti-Tory. His Tweets didn’t exactly set the world alight, but he obviously appealed to a lot of people as he’d amassed over 30k followers.
I won’t pretend to remember what it was that got me blocked by Jamie Kay. I remember challenging him about something in one of his Tweets, I’m pretty hardcore on misogyny, racism, ableism and slights against the LGBTQ community. It was probably something minor, but he chose to block me rather than defend his position. That was probably six months ago, and it was no loss to my Twitter experience.
Fast forward to March 2021 and it’s become blatantly apparent that Jamie Kay is NOT a socialist. In 2018, he was a self-confessed Tory voter and like all Tory voters, Jamie has some pretty disturbing views.

Of course, nothing stays buried for long on Twitter and someone else, who’d scratched the surface of Jamie’s faux socialism, brought the old Tweet to the attention of the #SocialistSunday crowd. Jamie could easily have apologised, said that these were no longer his views or given some kind of explanation for his behaviour. Instead he doubled down on the comment. According to Jamie. Black people and our supporters are taking the Tweet about Black youths and knife crime out of context. To clarify, there is no context within which this is acceptable. Jamie claims he was asking an important out of a deep concern for the Black community. I guess his care and commitment to the Muslim community compelled him to Tweet this.

As with all racists, Jamie’s concern does not stretch to protecting us from those who mean us harm. In fact, when we bring his racism to the fore, Jamie calls upon them to harass us and have our accounts suspended.
Meet Willow Bella. Not the type of account that you’d expect a socialist to entertain, but here’s Jamie begging her for a follow. Willow is a well known far right troll with several accounts which she uses for her more blatant racism. Here’s what she thinks of Black Lives Matter, but of course she has lots of love for All Lives Matter and White Lives Matter.

When Willow’s not humping the flag, you’ll find her harassing Black women and instigating pile ons in a bid to have our accounts suspended.
This weekend Jamie set Willow, and her white supremacist followers, on myself and around a dozen Black accounts who are working unpaid overtime to expose Jamie’s racism to his 30k followers, most of whom were amassed through #SocialistSundays.
Here’s another of Jamie’s friends. Ram Bhojani uses his brown skin as a shield to protect himself and his followers from accusations of racism and anti-Blackness. A Conservative with more flags on his account than a Hitler Rally, Ram believes that Black people are the ‘most racist people in the UK.’

Black women are Ram’s preferred target, along with his gammon army, he rejoices in our downfalls and eggs on his racist followers to attack on his behalf, leaving them to spurt the most vicious anti-Blackness while Ram himself tries unsuccessfully to maintain a degree of respectability.
Here’s Ram admitting to being ‘racist by association.’ He likes to hang out with white nationalist John Broadhead, encouraging his attacks on Black women and liking his Tweets like the one bellow, congratulating him for an attack on a Black Twitter user and agreeing with John’s sentiments that ‘blacks (sic) are the most racist people in the UK.
The tactic that Jamie, Ram and the rest of the racist clan are using is called ‘brigading.’ According to Urban Dictionary: ‘Brigading is an online harassment tactic where a group of people rally against an individual (or occasionally against a small group of people) in a coordinated, sustained and organized way’
For the lone victim, brigading is a horrifying experience. Brigadiers gaslight, torment, and goad Black people into reacting, at which point, they mass report the victim and have their Twitter accounts restricted. Riding to Jamie’s defence, Ram, Willow Bella, John Broadhead and an army of sock accounts (some of whom pretend to be Black), have dedicated an entire weekend to fascist Twitter activity. We persevered, determined that the Twitter left would see through Jamie Kay’s think veil of left-wing solidarity and protect #SocialistSundays from misuse.

Unfortunately for me, Jamie and Ram’s friend Mells, went to my Facebook account and took photographs of my autistic son Romario. Posting his gorgeous pic on Twitter with a title mocking him for being autistic, Mells exposed the fact that Jamie is not only a racist, but a vile ableist too.

Our campaign to raise awareness of Jamie’s right-wing behaviour seems to be working, but it shouldn’t be up to Black people to spend our time and energy exposing racists in socialist circles. We’ve been keeping house for white people since 1619 and enough is enough. Socialists need to be as dedicated as we are in making socialist Twitter a safe space for Black people and do the heavy lifting that we have been forced to undertake.
Who knows how long it will take for socialists to see that Jamie Kay is an abusive racist? He’s still got his following despite openly fraternising with white nationalist and their brown skinned assistants. What I do know is that this issue has now received enough exposure to reassure any decent socialist that anyone who still follows Jamie Kay is complicit. Silence is violence!
UPDATE – 02/08/22
I’ve been forced to update this blog as it’s being shared by people who are claiming to be victims of Jamie’s but have been previously involved in the racist hate campaign and actively sought to discredit and smear us for the simple act of standing up to Jamie’s racism.
If you check out my other blogs you will see how this situation snowballed with the involvement of alleged antiracist group Resisting Hate. Their star troll account ‘Joker’ has spent 18 months threatening Black children and using their pics to create accounts claiming they are being sexually abused.
Joker released our private contact details to the far right, sent us lynching pictures and images of Black people being tortured. He reported me to Social Services in an attempt to remove my child from my home and has also tried to get a number of Black professionals fired from their employment. Joker was assisted by a number of people that included Nicola James and her ‘business partner’ in fake CIC, Bully Off, John Sheller, who claimed that Joker is a ‘good antifascist.’ They published a blog on their website defending Joker and Resisting Hate and smearing us as racist scammers. In fact John Sheller has been a constant feature of our harassment, labelling Black women as members of the far right and stalking us with all the creepiness you’d expect from a middle aged white man who spends his time playing cops and robbers on the internet creating fake CIC’s, pretending he’s an asset to police forces dealing with internet crime and generally forgetting that he’s a convicted conman who makes women’s lives hell. You can read about his crimes here and make up your own minds whether he has a genuine interest in protecting women from men like Jamie Kay.
This statement from John Sheller and Bully Off shows that while we were trying to raise awareness to the hate campaign created by Jamie Kay, John and Nicola were desperately trying to defend Resisting Hate who became involved when Jamie’s supporters like Kercle and the now exposed serial sexual predator John West, realised they were not going to be able to silence or intimidate us.
The accounts Sheller discusses here have all been part of convoluted and frankly ridiculous attempts to mark us as members of the far right and infiltrate our circle posing as friends. This is a long running situation that Nicola and Sheller have been involved in long before our arrival and they have desperately tried to use our campaign to settle their own scores and raise their own profiles ever since. They know that Jamie Kay created this situation. That we have no connection to Steve James and only fucked with Khan cos she posed as a friend. They know we didn’t attack or even know who the fuck RH were and that this is all began with the man they are now pursuing despite trying to thwart attempts to stop him.
So I’d like everyone reading this to think critically about the motives of those who are now speaking out against Jamie. Instead of apologising for getting it wrong they are currently harassing those who have done the most to expose Jamie because we won’t ignore Nicola James’ involvement with fascists who have delighted in mocking our supporter’s disabilities, reported them to the DWP to stop their benefits and have dead named trans men and trans women and put them at risk by putting out their personal details.
I urge you to read this blog and see Resisting Hates’ hatred for yourselves. All is not as it seems but one thing is sure. Jamie Kay’s latest ‘victims’ are no friends of Black women.
