    Corrupt Lancaster Planning Board Member Using Power To Harass Festival Organizers Because Turtleboy Said Nice Things About Them

    Want to advertise with Turtleboy? Email us at [email protected] for more information.

     

     

    This is Russell Williston, a member of the Lancaster Planning Board:

    He is participating the boycott of Turtleboy advertisers:

    But it wasn’t enough for him to harass our advertisers with a meaningless petition that ultimately will go nowhere. Instead he saw that we wrote a blog about an upcoming food truck festival at Kalon Farm in Lancaster, and decided to use the small amount of power he is clinging to in order to harass them into…….us not writing nice things about them? Here’s his email:

    I’ve only recently become aware of the event you’d like to hold in Lancaster next month, which sounds interesting. I am writing because I was contacted by someone who was concerned that your event is advertising on a local racism/hate blog called “Turtleboy Sports.” I tried to confirm this myself and did see that you’ve linked to that blog from a Facebook page, and I saw that the Turtleboy blog wrote an article about your event. Is it correct that your event is a sponsor of the Turtleboy blog? If so, I’d like to know more about why you’ve picked that demographic in particular and how it ties into your event. I’d like to apologize in advance if this is a misunderstanding.  

    Thank you,
    Russell Williston

    The nerve of this guy. Notice how he wrote “event you’d like to hold.” As in, “I’m willing to use my powers on the planning board to keep you out if you don’t answer my questions.”

    Then of course he calls Turtleboy a “local racism/hate blog,” which of course is libelous because Turtleboy has never, ever promoted racism. Ever. These people think they can get away with just throwing that word around at everything they don’t like, but it actually has a definition:

    “prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one’s own race is superior.”

    If someone could point me to the blog in which Turtleboy expresses the belief that his or her race is superior to other races (which might be confusing since we’ve employed several BOC (bloggers of color)), then we’ll gladly take the blog down forever. Of course such a blog doesn’t really exist, but nonetheless elected officials like Russ Williston think they can get away with making up lies like this.

    Ironically Russ Williston was a member of the Bentley College Republicans:

    The political party that frequently is wrongly accused of being racist by the likes of Elizabeth Warren and company.

    Of course the most hilarious part about his email is the fact that he thinks he has ANY RIGHT to ask these people if they are a sponsor of the blog, and WHY they picked this “demographic” in particular to advertise to. Imagine being so full of yourself that you believe that private individuals owe you an explanation about how they spend their advertising budgets?

    Imagine thinking that you’re so much better than someone else that you have a right to ask them why they’re advertising towards a certain “demographic?” You all see what he did there right? He’s calling you all white trash. Why would anyone want to be see by your “demographic?” You’re all garbage human beings, and he just can’t understand why any legitimate business would want your business.

    For the record, we never listed them as an advertisers. Maybe they are, maybe they’re not. It’s actually no one’s business, especially Russ Williston. We choose to promote local businesses and companies for free all the time if we go to a place and have a meal we like. Countless pizza shops, local service businesses, great restaurants and countless others have been featured on our page and in our blogs.  Like Pure Juz:

    We love them. This guy is going after Clustertruck simply because we had nice things to say about them too. And we consider any support for them to be support for the blog since we LOVE truck festivals like this.

    Anyway, since this guy thinks it is appropriate to harass people who may or may not be conducting private business in his town, let’s talk about where he works:

    Senior Systems, Inc in Marlboro. Here’s their Facebook page:

    Since he apparently sees nothing wrong with harassing people at their work, which has nothing to do with them, then he would probably see nothing wrong with large groups of people calling his work and letting them know what a corrupt, bullying liar he is.

    The funniest part about this is that this guy is an elected official in Lancaster of all places. Look, I like Lancaster. It’s easy to get to, quite lovely, and in a great school district. But the fact of the matter is that their corrupt board of selectmen recently rehired a town manager who they fired a couple years ago after he was arrested after being found in this condition:

    unnamed (5)

    unnamed (4)

    Drunk, covered in puke, with pants down while on the way home from a strip club. This guy runs the town of Lancaster, but apparently the biggest thing that they have to worry about is a food truck festival that Turtleboy wrote nice things about. Of course it’s not surprising that the Board of Selectmen would rehire a guy they fired three years ago for being a lush, since this guy is also on the BOS in Lancaster:

    And Mark Grasso also has a legal history with driving under the influence of drugs:

    “Lancaster Selectman Mark A. Grasso Jr. was arraigned in District Court on Monday on charges that he drove the wrong way up a one-way street in Sterling while under the influence of drugs Friday and causing a minor crash with another vehicle. Grasso, 28, of 64 Chace Hill Road, was arrested by Sterling police about 10 p.m., after the minor crash on Chocksett Road. No one was injured in the crash, according to the police report. Grasso is charged with operating under the influence of drugs, driving without a license, marked-lanes violations, negligent operation of a motor vehicle, and driving the wrong way on a state highway.”

    But yea, Lancaster’s biggest issue right now is a blog and a delicious food truck festival.

    The bottom line is we will promote ANY company, business, or private individual we choose to. Whether or not they are paying us is no one’s business but our own. For all you know we could owe someone a favor or just be in a good mood. We reached out to Russ Williston for comment but he immediately deactivated his social media. He knew poking the turtle was a bad idea, but he did it anyway. And for that he has to deal with the aftermath.

     

    The planning board has nothing to do with your event.  I contacted you because I was surprised to hear that there was an event in town advertising on what I know to be vile and offensive blog.  (Obviously I stand by that assessment.)  He certainly seems to think that you’re his advertiser and that he’s acting on your behalf.   He has my address posted, with someone replying “Boom”
    I contacted the “Info” address on this event’s website to ascertain why an event in town was advertising on an infamous website a long history of offensive content, racism and abuse. In return I’ve been subjected to an entire day of abuse and libel by your advertising partner. If you’re suggesting that this does not reflect on you, or that I should not share this with the authorities, you’re out of your mind.

     

    We urge you to support the following local businesses.

      I hope Russell enjoys his unemployment.
      Start carving another tombstone for the graveyard.

    2. Renee's Chin Drippings


      I wasn’t doing anything this weekend, but now I’m making it a point of taking out my Harley and swinging by Kalon Farms this weekend to buy some stuff… and I’ll be sure to let the manager know I read about their establishment on TBS and I support establishments which support free speech.

      Planning Boards can only stop things that are in contravention with existing zoning bylaws or statutes. Personal feelings have no place in decision making processes, if he doesn’t like a sponsor, DON’T DO BUSINESS WITH THEM, its that simple. Fucking snowflakes……..go home, polish your participation trophy and sing Kumbaya………

    4. Your name here*


      I have to take a shit sooooooo bad but I am at work. I took a shit at work last week and clogged the toilet. Water came down in to the office below the bathroom and it was funny because they had to call a plumber and Roto-Rooter. I just sat at my desk, 5 lbs lighter, and enjoyed the spectacle. It’s probably safe to take another shit.

      Ah yes, the abyss. Beyond Good and Evil. “He who fights with monsters should be careful lest he thereby become a monster. And if thou gaze long into an abyss, the abyss will also gaze into thee.” Nietzsche

      Congratulations to the Lancaster Yacht Club for again keeping Lancaster sexy.
      True karma for planning board member and former “Lancaster Transparency” leader Russell Williston.

      This f’n asshat used to shoot spitballs from his bitch Facebook page at anything that got his argyle socks in a bunch.

      This story is pure gold. Planning Board must love this. Great planning board member he turned out to be. Go hide again jackass. Your mommy has you binky and coddle cloth at the ready.

      Also you can comment here https://www.facebook.com/seniorsystems and review them on google. Shadilay!

    7. Between the Riv and the Bed


      Can’t wait to hear his rebuttal to this, I am sure it will be awesome!

      It is funny because I am sure this is an event that will make his town money.

      I think it will be time to get the ol’ resume dusted off, update the LinkedIn page, and bend over and spread them wide cause it’s gonna be a fun few days.

      I would be interested to see if a gofundme pops up for him by his echo chamber, and the state snowflakes.

    8. SUCK IT


      die in a fire traitor tyrant.

    9. Too Tall Tim


      Their response could go something like this:
      “Dear Mr. Williston
      Your apology is accepted. Yes, you are misunderstanding. Firstly, it is not an event we would like to hold, it is an event that has already been planned and arranged and IT IS GOING TO BE HELD in Lancaster. As far as advertising is concerned we appreciate anybody’s help in announcing this event so that as many members of the community as possible will be aware of the opportunity to enjoy and have fun at the event. The only “demographics” we are concerned about is the general residents of our community and any person who would enjoy the event. We can not deny anyone’s free speech, and certainly would refrain from restricting any free announcements from blogs. If you have an issue with “Turtleboy Sports” take your complaints to them.”

    10. Rashad


      Apparently delusional. Get yourself some help before you kill someone. Another fascist-hater who has a million double-standards in his life of illusion.

    11. Mediocrity


      His workplace FB page closed the reviews. LOL! I wish I had done a screenshot of them last night. Both workplace and Town of Lancaster are going to be mighty busy weeding through emails Monday morning.

    12. SJWHater101


      Fuck this asshole. Typical fucking SJW, sticking his nose where it doesn’t fucking belong, making something of nothing.

    13. WHATEVUH


      You spelled Russell Williston’s name incorrectly. Correct spelling is: FUCKINGPUSSY

    14. Myra Walker


      Kalon Farms is a business to support in this town, and Turtleboy can promote a food truck festival seeing as it is free country, at least I hope it still is. Russell objects to this but doesn’t object to the BOS re-hiring Orlando. You can’t have it both ways, either you want superior character for all elected officials and who might sponsor functions in Lancaster or character doesn’t matter for all.

    15. White Devil


      If you are going to be accused and punished for supporting racism you might as well support racism, nothing to lose. Promote some anti white stories, white privilege, white devil. They would welcome you with open arms, T&G probably do a promo puff piece on you.

    16. Publius


      Russell brought this on himself. Deserves everything he gets. He earned it. Russ do the right thing and resign.

    17. Puke Covered Drunk Ratchet


      TB, you buried the lead man.
      But it’s not a problem you need re run an entire story on this incident alone.

      This is blogger gold, solid 24k gold, you even have pictures, blog again with this TB.

      “Drunk, covered in puke, with pants down while on the way home from a strip club. This guy runs the town of Lancaster”

      Russel Wiltington, he seemed like a dick but so what. so many dicks in local gov, I didn’t care one way or another about this story based it’s headline…. until reading the part about his past extreme drunk driving, puke covered strip club adventure by a middle aged man. Went from whatever, to fire this bastard in 3 seconds.
