    So after we blew up his spot the rest of the mainstream media finally decided to do their job and report on Worcester Mayor Joe Petty getting caught on a hot mic calling protesters he helped organize, and had just given a rousing speech in front of, “morons,” “stupid,” and “not educated.”

    It appeared as if they weren’t gonna do their job, but we made them. The story was too big to ignore. I mean, this guy literally just spoke to this mob he organized and bused in, and they were all singing his praises. And what does he do? He insults them at a public meeting with his microphone on. His REAL feelings came out. He thinks so little of these people that he uses them to bully his political opponents, and then shits right on their face afterwards. And it went EVERYWHERE!!!

    Worcester Magazine tried to pretend like the audio wasn’t clear:

    But it clearly was. And Mayor Puddy issued perhaps the fakest apology we’ve ever heard to his cronies at WoMag this morning:

    Mayor Joe Petty has issued a statement apologizing for remarks caught on a “hot mic” during last night’s City Council meeting, saying he was “caught in a moment of frustration.”

    During a delay caused by protesters in the hallway outside chanting through the beginning of the meeting, a City Hall livestream of the meeting picked up remarks referring to protesters as “morons” and “not educated at all.” The remarks had spread across social media today, as Petty had been a vocal advocate for the protest and had given a speech thanking protesters for showing up.

    Screen Shot 2017-02-01 at 10.32.58 AM

    “First of all, let me apologize for my remarks,” Petty said in a statement. “I had just witnessed a thousand people outside city hall delivering a positive and respectful message, and I did not want their voices to be lost. For anyone who has been caught on a hot mic, it’s embarrassing. I was caught in a moment of frustration and I was wrong.”

    Petty also refocused on the point of the protest.

    “I am so proud of the people of Worcester — young and old, religious leaders and college students, recent immigrants and longtime residents — who came out last night, and throughout the week called and emailed my office, to express their support for the immigrants and refugees in our city,” Petty said. “I will not allow their voices to be diminished by this blatantly political attempt by those who seek to divide us. At the end of a very long night, because of an unprecedented outpouring by our community, our city council voted in support of our values, in support of our police department, and in support of keeping our city safe for all.”

    Wait….did I miss the apology part? Doesn’t an apology usually contain the word, “sorry?” Saying, “let me apologize,” doesn’t count as an apology. It’s an introduction to an apology. After you say, “let me apologize,” it needs to be followed by, “I screwed up, I own it, I’m sorry.” Something to that nature. Instead we got this:

    “I had just witnessed a thousand people outside city hall delivering a positive and respectful message, and I did not want their voices to be lost. For anyone who has been caught on a hot mic, it’s embarrassing. I was caught in a moment of frustration and I was wrong.”

    That’s not an apology. It’s an excuse. He shit on them because he was in a “moment of frustration.” Frustrated by what? He invited them there and egged them on. He wanted that to happen. He rambles on about the “positive and respectful message” he saw delivered outside, and then they come inside and he calls them all stupid morons.

    “It’s embarrassing??” That’s all he’s got? Yea dude, you should be embarrassed. You just shit on these people because you didn’t think they could hear it. But being embarrassed is a lot different than being sorry. You’re embarrassed because you got caught. By Turtleboy. But you obviously don’t regret saying it. It’s obviously how you really feel.

    Then he rambles on with this:

    “I am so proud of the people of Worcester — young and old, religious leaders and college students, recent immigrants and longtime residents — who came out last night, and throughout the week called and emailed my office, to express their support for the immigrants and refugees in our city,” Petty said. “I will not allow their voices to be diminished by this blatantly political attempt by those who seek to divide us. At the end of a very long night, because of an unprecedented outpouring by our community, our city council voted in support of our values, in support of our police department, and in support of keeping our city safe for all.”

    What the fuck does any of that have to do with anything? That’s all just meaningless, feel good bullshit from an empty suit politician. “I will not allow their voices to be diminished?” Dude, you just called them morons!! You won’t allow this “blatantly political attempt by those who seek to divide us?” You just brought a mob in for the sole purpose of dividing us. Then you shit on the mob on a hot mic.

    The most hypocritical part about this is how how when he gets caught on a hot mic it’s just “embarrassing.” But when Trump gets caught on a hot mic in 2005 it means he’s a pussy grabbing, sexually assaulting maniac.

    Councilor Gaffney called for him to resign today. If he had any class or integrity he’d do so. But he won’t, because he knows that Uncle Jimmy McGovern and the Crime Family will always have his back no matter what. They can get away with stealing taxpayer money and shitting on their own supporters because they know that these same idiots will vote for them anyway because Petty has convinced them that Gaffney is the antichrist.

    1. Busted and time to step down


      No surprise, Petty has always been a two-face poseur. As this episode shows, a user with hidden-agendas.

    2. paul


      he was frustrated hahahaha
      If that is how he handles the tiny bit of pressure of a meeting not starting on time, how bad does he fold up when there is important high pressure decision to make like if the roads should be plowed. Oh wait we already know that answer.

      I’m sure all his supporters think it is ok now and have forgotten he called them all uneducated, stupid morons. I think he was right

      1. Realist


        Is the Mayor in charge of the DPW?

        1. Youknowimabigdeal


          Better to keep you cum Catcher closed and let people think your a wanker.
          Or….
          You can open it and confirm what we already knew!

          1. Realist


            I never met your wife, why would you tell me to keep her closed? And, Is he in charge of the DPW?

          2. Fly on the wall!!!


            His daughter was the “prize” of the GOP club at UMASS. Exploits galore!!!!! Pass her around.

    3. I melt snowflakes.


      Joe Petty couldn’t apologize with Uncle Jimmy McGovern’s dick in his mouth. The guy is the biggest douchenozzle in the city. I think the right thing to do would have been to put the sanctuary city idea up for a vote so the people of Worcester could have had a say in it. Someone should start a petition to have him removed from his position. Remember GOVERNMENT is supposed to work for US. WE the majority elect them and they are supposed to listen to the majority when it comes to making/passing laws that affect us. A bus load of NoHo hippy snowflakes shouldn’t be in worcester voicing there opinion on worcester policy at all. After all they are just a bunch of “Stupid uneducated morons morons morons. Go back to NoHo and make YOUR town a sanctuary city.

      1. Realist


        Lots of words, Zero meaning!

        1. Dumbass


          You need to know how to read and comprehend what what written so it has meaning.

    4. Realist


      Regardless of why he said it, he did. That being said, Gaffney calling on him to resign if f-ing hilarious! I can understand why sometimes pols make a statement by going it alone on some issues, but Gaffney takes it to another level! He is no better than the hyper partisan right or left, and it’s becoming embarrassing!

      1. Mirror Mirror


        Keep upvoting your own posts. LOL.

        Talk about embarrassing.

        1. Realist


          Funny how no one ever disputes my facts though, You included! I’ll take the down votes knowing that I am right, Not a sheep like most on here!

      2. poopalert


        “…and it’s becoming embarrassing!”

        As embarrassing as Petty?
        As embarrassing as out-of-towners coming to support Worcester being a sanctuary city?
        As embarrassing as snow removal in Worcester?
        As embarrassing as a city councilor who denigrates men and extols the virtues of her reproductive organs in the council floor?
        As embarrassing as the deteriorating infrastructure in Worcester?
        As embarrassing as two panhandlers on every corner? (hyperbole, but not by much..maybe two on every exit ramp.)

        1. Realist


          You sound like a “Townie” ! Guess what, Cities have panhandlers, Cities have crime, Cities like Worcester have lots of roads with lots of hills! You sound like a little townie bitch, like many of the commenters here!

          1. poopalert


            Lived all over Worcester buddy. Not a townie – just someone who has a reasonable expectation for quality of living issues.

            “Little townie bitch” …are you the same guy lamenting that “Funny how no one ever disputes my facts though?” That is how you debate something – by name calling? I see a lot of opinion and condescension from you – not too many facts.

            FACTS- I went to college in Worcester, I worked in Worcester and lived in Worcester.

            Never thought that by living in a city vs town it meant embracing lack of snow removal (gotten worse over the past 20 years) and the increased number of panhandlers.

            BTW – I didn’t mention crime, YOU did – that is a fact.

            I am curious though … you seem to embrace panhandlers, crime and I guess unplowed roads because they “have hills.” Are these facts?

    5. wtatnuckgangsta


      It’s basically proof that supporting these protesters is just for show. It’s so cool right now to support protesting. If I were a politician, I’d be all over that shit for votes. A high-paid just doing nothing sounds fantastic.

    6. Publius


      Petty calls his supporters morons and uneducated and Gaffney has to come to their rescue.

    7. johnnyb


      GOP has gotta be saying…How do we lose to this shit every year in Mass??

      1. Vote Republican


        If this keeps up, the GOP won’t keep losing. I’d really love to know how many of those protesters actually live in Worcester? Cuz you haven’t seen a protest until the people in Worcester have no trash pick up, can’t plow the roads, can’t pay the police etc. because our Mayor is the stupid, uneducated moron.

    8. Jeanette C


      I am greatly concerned with what happens in this city, since my husband and I are buying and living in a triple decker here. I made the choice to move here in 2010 from Illinois, I love Worcester. Not only are we responsible for ourselves, we are, also, responsible for our tenants, we take good care of our home and make sure they have a safe, clean place to live. We get along well with most of our Rice Square neighbors and even give out cookies and candy on the holidays to the ones, we have become friends with and are close too. We have many immigrant neighbors, the only thing is, as a homeowner and landlord here in the city, we are expected to follow city, state and federal laws……So how can we take city government seriously if they don’t do the same……I have absolutely zero respect for Mayor Petty for the way he is acting and all the respect in the world for Michael T. Gaffney and pray he will be elected Mayor of this great city in November.

    9. KEVIN LYNCH


      This is why Turtleboy has no real deal credibility. You are a far right attack blog when it pertains to politicians and a hate blog when it pertains to non politician people.

      One, MAYOR PETTY DID NOT ORGANIZE THE EVENT. THAT IS A BLATENT LIE. People were personally driven after Gaffney pulled the political stunt.

      It is not good to call people names. Turtleboy does it for a living. The Mayor is the chair and that is how he reacts toward disruption of a hearing. He doesn’t like hearings to be disrupted.

      If this were a planned event people would had made sure that they were quiet. There were lots of people. It WAS NOT ORGANIZED BY THE MAYOR AS THAT IS A LIE. People were not directed as they came because Gaffney drew them all in after starting the bs.

      1. Jeanette C


        It was organized by Mayor Petty, he sent out invites to all of the SJW groups, he hoped to shame Gaffney and it didn’t work, all he did was show the world, who the REAL “Friggin Moron and the uneducated fool” is. Kevin your another idiot that needs to keep his nose in Fitchburg where you belong!!!

        1. KEVIN LYNCH


          I am on the list of organizations who attended. The Mayor DID NOT organize the event. I do not care who he sent out invites to as NO organization on that list received one from him. You are wrong.

          I know a couple organizers close to him as they may think they organized it but they didnt. It took off across the board as there were plans for a rally the moment people read the back and forth in the paper.

          I was at a sign making event the night before. These were ALL community people within Worcester.

          Yes, ONE bus came from outside of Worcester which is common. Worcester is a main city in the area.

          I work and volunteer in Worcester and hopefully will be living in Worcester soon.

          Gaffney is a punk. Yes, the Mayor fucked up by name calling but if you ever seen him run a meeting he is strit and a crank sometimes when there is a disturbance.

          In one way I understand his frustration as he is the Chair of the meeting and he needs to call order.

          Some of us thought the building might of been cleared some at one point. People were just pumped up, it usually doesn’t get loud as it did.

          They were chanting outside the front door and it made its way inside like a wave at fenway.

          Those on the top floor were telling everyone below to keep it down and no cheering.

      2. my bashed in skull


        Shut up no one cares what you think.

      3. BobnMic


        Kevin, your story sounds fascinating and I would love to meet up with you to get all the details. See I am a pulitzer award winning journalist and I am starting my own blog to compete against Turtleboy and I could really launch my site with an exclusive interview with Turtleboy’s most notorious villain. Maybe you could be a regular contributor. If you’d like to discuss this multi million dollar opportunity further, you can reach me at bobnmic(at)gmail(dot)com.

        Cordially yours,
        BobnMic

      4. UsualSuspect


        Hey Kevin, people don’t call you names, they call you “Murdering piece of shit”, because that is a fact. Funny how a badass like you sides with all the snowflake, hurt feeling clowns. Go away, or not, because it is obvious you love the abuse. Self-flagellation for prior misdeeds perhaps?

    10. BobnMic


      It is somewhat irrelevant on who organized this cluster fuck shit show. The fact remains that these protesters go way beyond simply voicing their opinions and exercising their 1st Amendment rights. When they disrupt a government required assembly they cross the line and break the law. They need to know where the line in the sand is drawn in order to be taken seriously. Otherwise their credibility is flushed right down the toilet unlike a shit from Turd that held up in glee for all to view…

    11. Wwy


      We now know his favorite book is the communist manifesto,I remember the commonwealth of mass. Now it’s Jewish communism thx for the proof TB.

      1. I hate stupid people.


        Jewish communism? Keyboard cowboy. You wouldn’t have the balls to say that to my face cause I would knock out the three teeth you have left in that cock sucker of yours. Religion has nothing to do with it.

        1. Wwy


          Another Jewish communist,lol the communist manifesto was written by a Jew allergic to insecticide. You sound Boston strong!

          1. I hate stupid people.


            The world doesn’t need ignorance like you. Let me know where and when you wanna discuss this. I am not a keyboard cowboy.

    12. It hit the real world news


      Surprised it was mentioned on 25 news this evening. Will be more at 10 tonight.

    13. Steven Stover


      They need to march in front of city hall calling for his removal.

    14. Officer BobnMic


      I can’t believe this happened while I was busy creating a new way for DNA samples to be used to solve murders in a jiffy! I’m the only human being to ever think of this creation. My idea for DNA sampling started when my mom explained to me that I have a few extra chromosomes. She said they were not inherited, I don’t believe the bitch! She just as slow, if not worse than I am. At least when I drool, I can aim for my bucket!

      Anyhow. I’m up late at night again having a hard time falling asleep. Maybe I should turn my police scanner off and put my bicycle away. I need a break from the hard life of being a fraudulent police officer.

      1. Turd Burglestein


        Did your new method involve a taste test of semen samples?

        1. FiestyLawyerLady


          I’m sure it did… Bob has a palate for salty.

          1. BobnMic


            Awww now look at this. A pill popping junkie attention seeking narcissist who pretends to be a lawyer along with her leather fag cokehead dealing junkie both enabling each other. How adorable. How unsurprisingly fantastic.

            That is some serious ‘Birds of a feather’ shit clinging to shit kinda stuff right there. Wow….

    15. Creme Puff


      It’s refreshing that someone calls the people what they are!

    16. Justice


      What a stupid ass. I think I will create a new word for the Urban Dictionary. I think the Turtle might like to use it as well. Let’s start using the word Puddy to refer to an imbecile or imbecilic action. He pulled a real puddy! or What a puddy! LOL

    17. Diogenes


      In catching up on older posts, I saw this. So the petty mayor has admitted what he said; how do the snowflakes that were sure the recording had been edited handle that? Now that petty has confirmed he call them morons, are they still supporting him (and thus proving him right)?

      What’s the term for someone who says one thing to one group of people and then the opposite when he thinks no one can hear him……..oh yes, LIAR.
