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.
A couple weeks ago a woman in Belingham named Alex McIsaac caused a stir when she said that a local church was orchestrating a human trafficking ring!!
I remember seeing this post a couple weeks ago when people sent it to us (it got almost 3,000 shares) and wanted us to blog about it. First of all, we don’t do the whole, “some random chick posted it on Facebook without any real evidence” and pass it off as real news. Secondly, this smelt fishy:
“I love talking to people.”
Anyone who has ever said, “I love talking to people” isn’t someone I’d ever take seriously.
Thirdly, she determined that she was about to be the victim of human trafficking based solely on shit she read on social media. Stuff like this:
This same exact lie was making the rounds back in January, and tons of college coeds blindly believed it and shared it because other people posted it on Facebook or Twitter. After all, if it’s on Facebook or Twitter it must be true.
Well, as it turns out the whole thing was a hoax:
This would be terrifying, if it were true. But it’s not. There is no sinister sex trafficking group going from college to college – it’s just a religious organization called the They’re originally Korean, and have branches across the US.
Given how the PSAs from terrified students are all identical, there is no way of verifying that these scam encounters even took place, let alone involved sex trafficking.
Police have confirmed the rumors were false – there is no credible threat that this church is involved in human trafficking.
“We have investigated this complaint and have found nothing to substantiate that this group is or has been involved in any criminal activity,” cops in Lexington, Kentucky said.
The church even released a statement to deny that they were involved in the illegal sex trade, announcing:
“Recently, we were made aware of a social media post in which someone appears to accuse the Church and its members of being linked to a ring of sex/human trafficking. Nothing could be further from the truth. We are a church of Christian love and denounce any such activities wherever they may be carried out.”
This was a hoax that was mostly spread by “uh muh God” college coeds who think every stranger they see in public is trying to rape them. Not coincidentally, Alex is a college aged coed.
Keep in mind, this was seven months ago. All this wannabe #MeToo victim in Bellingham had to do was Google it and she’d find a bunch of articles about it. But she wanted the attention and the pats on the back for being so “brave” and staring down her would be kidnapper, even though he was likely just a guy who had the audacity of trying to buy books at Barnes and Noble and then looked in her general direction. And that’s exactly what she got:
And when she was alerted to the news that this was not in fact a human trafficking organization she said she didn’t believe them:
Because it’s way more fun to be a Facebook victim than it is to be a basic white chick who went to Barnes and Noble and had an anti-climactic afternoon.
Well, the Bellingham Police posted this last week in response:
So basically the police were being flooded with calls and are being tied up with basic white chick nonsense. It’s just a bunch of Korean bible people trying to convert you to Jesus. All you have to do is tell them you’re all set and move on with your day. But then you don’t get 3,000 shares and applause for being brave, and that isn’t nearly as fun.
They did update their post with this:
So yea, she did call, but apparently she didn’t think it was a very big deal because she didn’t file a police report. But yet she felt her life was so endangered that she then went home to post about her terrifying experience on Facebook. Sure thing Becky.
Her post is still up, and it’s still being shared by hundreds of people a day. Yet we’re the ones being kicked off Facebook because exposing liars like this makes us guilty of bullying and harassment, while people who are putting harmful fake news out there get to keep on doing their thing. Makes sense.
Are these people annoying weirdos trying to get you to join their scam church?
Yup. But it doesn’t mean they’re trying to kidnap you and turn you into a sex slave. Sorry Becky, you’re just not that important.
