If you like free speech and want to support what we’re doing, feel free to donate to the Turtle fund:
Hello Turtle Riders. As you know if you follow Turtleboy we are constantly getting censored and banned by Facebook for what are clearly not violations of their terms of service. Twitter has done the same, and trolls mass reported our blog to Google AdSense thousands of times, leading to demonitization. We can get by and survive, but we could really use your help. Please consider donating by hitting the PayPal button above if you’d like support free speech and what we do in the face of Silicon Valley censorship. Or just buy our award winning book about the dangers of censorship and rise of Turtleboy:
For the 17,500 turtle riders currently following Clarence Woods Emerson on Facebook, I regret to inform you that Clarence will be suspended for the next 30 days.
The infraction? Posting a screenshot of something alleged domestic abuser Rian Waters said on our Facebook page.
Yes, that’s right, Facebook is siding with the man who beats women and kills dogs. They are allowing him to dictate what is and isn’t allowed on Facebook. If you haven’t read I Am Turtleboy (link to purchase above) that’s basically what the book is about. People like this are the ones who decide what we are allowed to talk about, because freedom of speech is a myth. We exist to fight back against people like this, and we will not be silenced.
Obviously posting a screenshot of something said publicly on Facebook is not a violation of Facebook’s community standards. But since no one works at Facebook, there is no phone number you can call, and they seemingly get to violate their own terms of service without consequence, this post was likely not reviewed by a human being. Rather, it is highly likely that Rian Waters did this because he is currently suing us, and hates the fact that Bristol Turtlechick is ripping him to shreds.
It’s too bad because we were gonna livestream the Patriots game from that account on Sunday. Instead we’ll have to do it from the Philip V. Prentiss account. He is the Clarence backup #1, and you can follow (no friend request required) by clicking here. He won’t be able to post until around 7 PM today, because he is also currently riding out a 30 day suspension.
Philip will inevitably be suspended shortly thereafter, so follow backup #3, Terrance Collie, by clicking here.
You’re probably tired of us whining about Facebook, and so are we. We just have to post this to, 1) document it, and 2) let you know where we’re at. I’m sure many people will not see this and continue to message Clarence Woods Emerson. However, if we do not respond, or post for 30 days, that should tip you off that he’s in the hole. Make sure you’re following all of our backup accounts if you want to keep up with us on Facebook.
