As many of you know, myself and a group of Black women called out a ‘socialist’ who was making racist comments while building a huge following on the back of the #SocialistSunday hashtag. We were attacked by dozens of left-wing accounts in retaliation and found ourselves the focus of a yearlong campaign of racial hatred. Up until then, I’d seen Saboteur Aesop around, even followed her for a bit. I’m not sure why I unfollowed. Probably the constant stream of hate coming from her account.
How far is too far for Sarah Wiles? Let’s talk about Sarah Wiles. ‘Urghhhh’ you say, simultaneously losing your appetite and will to live. I know… it’s an ugly subject, […]
There’s something chilling about racist white women. It’s the switch for me. One minute they’re marching with you… FOR YOU… the next they’re quite literally trying to have you killed or hurt. With a smile, a few words of pity and a reminder of how much they’ve done for 'you people.'
I’ve been escalated. Pushed to the top of the agenda. The grift left put on their socks, sounded the alarm and helped the racists get me suspended from Twitter. Last night, white liberals celebrated my exit with drinks while I sat with the truth and the lessons I’ve learned over the past couple of months. Most of this I knew. Passed down by Black academics, writers and activists past and present. Through my experiences in the corporate world where white women jostle for a position alongside the white hetero patriarchy. From school and university. I knew this, but I’m still taken back by the fervour with which white women will uphold white supremacy and the danger they expose us to in the process.
Russian dolls cos you take down one Twitter racist and then another and another come crawling out of their guts. How did I get here? Well it started with a horrible right-wing, beer swilling swine called Jamie Kay who was posing as a socialist in a bid to increase his following. Myself and others highlighted a number of racist Tweets he made and made a ton of enemies. Liberals… That’s what I thought, but the last week has proven that there’s something fouler at play than I ever imagined. This isn’t liberalism. This is right wing infiltration of socialist circles. A sinister, strategic campaign that I’m guessing is designed to keep the Twitter left in a constant state of turmoil, infighting and mistrust.
#SocialistSundays 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.
