Like the Free Turtleboy Facebook page to follow our posts when our other page is arbitrarily suspended. If we ever get shut down for good, this will become the new Turtleboy Sports main Facebook page.
Editor’s Note: We originally published this blog in April of 2015, but were reminded of it today. We had 7,000 Facebook followers when we published it. Today we have 36,000.
Do you think the most unsuccessful boycott in the history of mankind has any chance of slowing down? Nope. The hippies have picked up some new followers who are under the impression that 19 year olds who promote racism and pornography on the Internet are somehow immune to public criciticism. And let me tell you, they’ve really added some winners to their ranks. Check out this guy:
Ole, ole, ole, ole…….Turtleboy Sports is known for deforming characters. Anyway, this poor guy is pretty new to the Internet, but nevertheless believes he is Rosa Parks, and has begun his own boycott:
LOL. They never get tired of guessing do they? We’re not even gonna bother trying to convince these idiots that there’s a bunch of us anymore, because honestly, what’s the point? They’re gonna believe what they want. But at the end of the day what does it matter? We’re not gonna stop. Ever. You’re only bringing us more readers every day. #pageviews
Anyway, this guy is obviously unfamiliar with the Internet. He’s got a couple hundred friends on there, yet he keeps sharing his boycott:
Hey kids – how does this Internet thing work? I don’t get it? Where do you put the mail? How do I get on AOL? Can this thing show me how to tip 11% on a restaurant bill?
Anyway, Kathy and Dan eventually figured out how to work the email machine and they started firing off threatening emails to our sponsors, threatening to never go there for the first time in their lives. And one of our sponsor’s gave him one of the most epic, freedom loving beatdowns I’ve ever seen:
I’m writing to you in response to your effort to “boycott” the sponsors on Turtleboy Sports. First, if you don’t like what they blog about, then don’t read it. The fact is TBS gets a lot of traffic on their site. The traffic includes people who agree with TB’s views as well as people who don’t. Either way, the sponsors benefit. The sponsors don’t necessarily agree with TB, they advertise to increase business in their establishments. We’re in business to make money, it doesn’t matter from where our customers originate. TBS is certainly a controversial blog, but they’re getting page views from both sides, which equates to the sponsors receiving more traffic on their sites, and new customers.
The fact that you’re trying to “boycott” the sponsors on their site just shows your level of maturity. You’re doing the exact same thing that you’re chastising TBS for doing. What makes your actions any different than TB posting something that you do not agree with? You’re knowingly and purposefully screwing with the livelihood of quite a few people. By trying to boycott a sponsor, you’re affecting the employees that work at these establishments. These employees don’t have anything to do with where/whom their employer chooses to advertise. These people rely on the business that TBS readers bring to the sponsors. In addition, the sponsors are small business owners in and around Worcester. Small businesses struggle enough by having to compete with the big chain stores/restaurants as well as the challenges they face on a daily basis with taxes, insurance, etc. Again, we’re in business to make money and typically a small business can’t afford to lose customers when they’re simply trying to make a living.
The girl you’re “defending” is no saint (she actually portrayed herself as the opposite in my opinion) and deserved to be called out on some of the things she has posted online. The fact that she’s condoning people blocking traffic and delaying an ambulance getting through Kelley Square speaks VOLUMES about the kind of person she is. Once you post something online, it’s out there for the world to see. Nothing is private in the land of social media and if someone is going to jump on their high horse and call other people racist, then she needs to have thick skin to deal with the backlash of her comments.
You said you, “could creep around social media sites and come up with something as nonsensical and dehumanizing as this shit. Would I? No. Why? Integrity.”
Integrity???? You’re not showing much integrity by trying to ruin other people’s lives/businesses. You think calling the sponsors because you don’t like a blog is moral and ethical? That’s the epitome of hypocrisy right there.
If you don’t like or agree with TBS, then don’t read it. You’re more offended by the blog on Sam Dumas than Sam Dumas is! She’s a big girl and can fight her own battles. You should really put your efforts into something that matters instead of trying to ruin someone’s life/business. Again, if you don’t like TBS, don’t read the blog, but please, leave the sponsors out of it.
Boom. Roasted. I would literally kill a man for Bennie’s Cafe right now.
Seriously, that was freaking biblical right there. I wanted to slow clap. I wanted to stand up and salute. But I was hungry so I did the only sensible thing – I got my ass down to Bennie’s and got their world famous rueben sandwich. That’s how you really stick it these nudnik milkshakes.
Don’t let bullies like Dan Collins win. Dan and Kathy Collins are trying to take food off the table for the hard working employees who wait tables and tends bar at Bennie’s. And all because they’re butthurt by a blog. Instead of just not reading this is what they do. What can you do? The world is filled with evil people. But every time they do something like this we are going to fight back even harder. If any of our sponsors gets an email like this we will gladly reprint your response and urge our readers to frequeunt your business.
Because here at Turtleboy Sports we respect and honor the small businesses of our community and want them to do well. We are loyal to them until the end of the earth. Even if they have to leave us because they just can’t afford to do it anymore, we still have their back. Anna’s Cleaning was with us for a few months, but I will still gladly tell anyone who wants their office or home cleaned to call up my favorite Polish immigrant family in America, because they will clean the shit out of your house.
If you own a business and you’re still wasting your money, or know a business that is still wasting their money advertising in Pulse Magazine or in the Telegram, smack some shit into them. Advertising with the Telegram is like being in a bad relationship with an ugly woman who is using you for your money. You think Clive is gonna have your back when push comes to shove? Nope. Join the revolution. Email us right now .
So Turtle riders need to step up their game and keep going to our sponsors and giving them your business. Take pictures. Write “Turtleboy sent you” on receipts. Wear your “I Am Turtleboy” shirt (or buy one if you haven’t yet) and take a selfie in front of one of these fine establishments. We’ll gladly put your pics up on Facebook to let the world know that you are a winner and you support freedom. God bless America.
Update: The Facebook reaction to this blog when we originally posted it in April of 2015 was proof positive that the Turtleboy Sports Revolution is an unstoppalbe force of nature:
