Earlier today we published a blog about this Winchester bankruptcy lawyer who thought it would be wise to post this death wish on Facebook:
Not cool. I don’t particularly care for Elizabeth Warren but I would prefer if she not die. Plus, even if she got run over by a train she’d just get replaced by someone almost as bad. This is the kid of discourse that is killing the country right now, and it comes from both sides. How can we ever expect to find common ground when there are politically active people out there posting stuff like this all over social media for the world to see? I miss the 90’s when Bill Weld and John Kerry could get together for a beer after a contentious campaign.
Anyway, we’re just following up to let people know what a GREAT law firm Marques works for. A turtle rider sent Parker and Associates a very congenial and well worded email expressing why the post bothered him, and might deter him from doing business with this firm if he were to declare bankruptcy. They responded with a email which the turtle rider forwarded to us and we wanted to share, because it was perfect:
I am sorry I do not know your name, but wanted to write to apologize for the posting by my employee and to thank you for taking the time to bring this to my attention. Needless to say, I am not only sickened to learn of the posting, but he has been strongly reprimanded and the account has been deleted. I have worked my entire professional life to assist people in trouble, regardless of their political beliefs as it is the mission of this firm to provide caring and compassionate legal representation. I can assure you that his views are not that of the firm and wanted to thank you for being a concerned citizen and reaching out to me.
Nina M. Parker, Esq.
Parker and Associates
God bless this woman. She handled it perfectly. I did not want to see this guy fired over a dumb social media post. Dude has a kid, and when you fuck with someone’s livelihood you fuck with their ability to care for their kid. The kid didn’t do anything wrong.
I just wanted him to learn how inappropriate it was for him to post something like that. Because we’re all about teachable moments here at Turtleboy Sports. It boggles my mind that grown adults don’t understand that when you are on social media you are ALWAYS REPRESENTING THE COMPANY YOU WORK FOR!!! Do people really not get that by now? Anyone can just Google your name and the first thing they’re gonna do is associate you with your company.
That’s why anyone who uses their real name and posts anything except baby pictures and non-controversial happy thoughts isn’t ready to handle the Internet. You wanna say whatever you want? Start a blog called Turtleboy Sports. We used to be where you once were. Then we figured out that if you use an alias you can say what you’re really thinking. Problem solved.
Anyway, please don’t bother this law firm. They’ve done everything right, and this woman who put her blood, sweat, and tears into building up a law firm that helps you start all over from scratch, should not be negatively affected by the stupid actions of one of her employees. Shouout to Nina Parker, Esq. The next time I declare bankruptcy you will be getting my business, and I will be hiring Marques Lipton because Turtleboy believes in forgiveness and redemption.
Snicker. TB imagines that he commands hordes of angry SJWs. My grrrl DeDe actually does lead *real* SJWs, so much so that she has hobbled TB’s FB presence. And did I hear whispers that she’s considering targeting his “offensive” Apple and Android Apps, too? Snicker. Get some popcorn ready, kiddos, and sit back and watch TB lay off everyone and go dark…
Oh thanks for reminding me, I need to download that app.
Is that fat bitch still alive? I figured she would have been found in an ally, OD’ed, with a fin ratholed up her ass. Got to love DiDi! Defying the odds!
Whether or not he gets fired should depend on him, if he has no contrition or recognition that he crossed the line he should go. Forgiveness is only for those who recognize their wrongs and want to change things.
Forgiveness could be bought with 30 days in a metal box on bread and water and 10 lashes of the whip, fuck him.
I halfway agree. The law firm isn’t to blame. But time and time again, we on the right get our entire lives destroyed by these pieces of shit and that garbage pail deserves the same fate. I am tired of letting these things go. We have no idea what happened. We don’t know there was a reprimand. We know nothing. I’m still complaining to the BAR Association. FUCK.THIS.GUY
I was hoping for a Gaffney style cheese and wine video response
I wouldn’t want an attorney who is that unhinged to be representing me for anything. Not a good look there.
One courteous and well written email, it’s what attorneys do and the punk attorney who wished death on half of America’s representatives is off the hook?
Agreed the Law firm is not at fault for his personal actions, too many getting punished for actions of one. The red faced lawyer that made the post should not be forgotten. The only thing he learned it to be more greasy and slippery in the future.
Stop going soft turtleboy. This asshole deserves anything that comes his way. Nothing short of him getting shit canned will do.
Don’t forget who wrote the god damn apology. A lawyer!! Think she really means it?
I think it’s more of a “this law firm lady is super nice and I don’t want to ruin her life either”.
That’s how you ruin your rep, kid.
Kind of my take as well. If this lawyer did get fired, it’s not like they are living paycheck to paycheck. Lawyers are in high demand. He would likely feel uneasy for a few months and land a job paying more than he makes now.
I too received a very thoughtful reply to my email, and agree that Nina Parker is a stand up lawyer.
I further agree that Mr. LIpton’s punishment shouldn’t be terminination, but a good dressing down and a hard learned lesson about the consequences of freely posting on social media. Hopefully he will appreciate the lesson and not be butthurt blaming everybody else for his poor decision and inappropriate partisan humor.
There is going to be a large-scale conflict in English-speaking societies, and the liberals are gearing up for it.
The conflict will be essentially fought by those who suck at life and can’t get ahead due to their own inadequacies and demand that the successful and hard-working give them treasure.
The battle will be waged largely by skinny men and their feminist allies who wear Woody Allen glasses, drive Toyota Priuses, and spend 10 minutes at the meat counter in Whole Foods asking the butcher what gender the pork identified as before it was humanely slaughtered. They will be fighting against men who work hard, play hard, drive trucks and have guns, and wear steel-toed work boots.
The battle won’t last more than 36 hours.
Ok. Your remark about Whole Foods has triggered me into laughing hysterically. That should be a frigging meme! You know it would piss off half the state, which would make it even better!
