Hey fam – if you’d like to support Turtleboy and what we do here, feel free to hit the donate button at the top. We basically have to run this site like a Bernie Sanders campaign now since we’ve been blacklisted by Google and Facebook, due to the fact that rabid SJWs keep reporting our posts. Getting blacklisted by Google is a death sentence for most websites, since it’s much harder to monetize. And we all know the damage Facebook has done. We’re never going to stop fighting for free speech, but in the meantime the best way for turtle riders to fight back is to donate to the cause. Without you people none of this is possible. We love you all.
Pretty much everyone on Facebook and Twitter for the last hour has been buzzing about ABC canceling Roseanne because she tweeted this about some woman named Valerie Jarrett who no one has ever heard of before:
I had no idea who Valerie Jarrett was. Apparently she worked for Obama and is black:
Still more legit than Elizabeth Warren and Shaun King.
Here’s 5 Turtle Takes about Roseanne getting axed……
1. If ABC thought this would cost them money, which it probably would, then they made the right decision. If not, then they made a stupid decision and allowed a mob to dictate their bottom line.
The NFL was right to make players stand for the National Anthem and should’ve done it a long time ago. Because ratings plummeted this year. The anthem protests were bad for business. And the only thing that matters for businesses is money. Period.
I would imagine the public uproar and ensuing boycotts (those were coming for sure) were something ABC didn’t wanna deal with. But as we’ve seen with the advertisers who left Laura Ingraham’s show, boycotters don’t buy shit anyway. But conservatives do. And they’ll leave you real quick if they think you’re a pussy.
2. It’s not racist to point out that a person looks like another person from a famous movie.
There is absolutely ZERO resemblance:
None at all. And if you think there is, you are racist.
Not sure if this is who Roseanne was referring to, but this is what many have suggested. Either way, they’re wrong because as a woke individual I can definitively say that their is ZERO resemblance.
3. The fact that people like Joy Reid and Keith Olbermann have no problem maintaining employment shows you that controversial/offensive takes are only OK if you’re a liberal.
Disney owns ABC and ESPN. Roseanne was fired because her tweet was bad for business. Yet somehow Olbermann, who has no real following amongst young people and is unlikely to help improve ratings for a failing network, is good for business at ESPN:

Joy Reid from MSNBC has posted shit that many of her ilk would consider “transphobic” and homophobic:
But instead of apologizing she claimed she was hacked:
.@MSNBC's Joy Reid addresses homophobic blog posts:
"I genuinely do not believe I wrote those hateful things … But I can definitely understand, based on things I have tweeted and have written in the past, why some people don't believe me." pic.twitter.com/PWjdPfs5KB
— MSNBC (@MSNBC) April 28, 2018
“Despicable, homophobic, and hateful tweets attributed to me.”
Yea, she totally didn’t say those things on her Twitter account. They were just attributed to her.
“I genuinely do not believe I wrote those hateful things.”
I mean, really?
Although I can’t blame her for saying this, considering everyone on her side of the aisle pretty much had her back:
Brains, guts, heart and soul — beloved Joy Reid has always been a treasured and brilliant colleague, but I've never been prouder to work with her than I am now. https://t.co/J95uL3CjMv

Turns out it’s racist to point out that a woman who’s made a career out of putting other people down for allegedly hateful things they’ve said, isn’t a total hypocrite because she’s black, and that ranks higher on the oppression food chain:
Joy Reid #AMJoy being forced to apologize for alleged homophobic tweets, is another example of how systematic white supremacy works. Black prople are publicity made to bow down and be reprimanded for alleged “bigotry” as a way to create a false equivalency to white racism

Since then she’s waited actual FBI resources investigating her hacking allegations. But they haven’t caught the perpetrators. Yet. And MSNBC, a network that claims to be woker than woke, still employs her. It’s almost as if facts don’t matter to some people.
4. This is further evidence that old people shouldn’t be allowed near the Internet.
People like Roseanne have probably been saying shit like this for years. It’s just how their generation grew up. You said the first thing that came to mind. You didn’t go around playing “gotcha” and trying to earn SJW brownie points by blowing up people for racially insensitive comments. But everyone under 40 knows that this ain’t how social media works. One bad tweet and you’re toast. Roseanne obviously missed that memo because she’s old and doesn’t understand the new rules of the Internet.
5. The woman who played the female ape from Planet of the Apes is a white woman.
So just to review. A white woman can dress up as an ape, even though an ape is an animal that people used to demean black people. But pointing out that this white woman looks like Valerie Jarrett, who also looks very much like a white woman, is racist.
It’s hard learning all these rules.
