Hello Turtle Riders. As you know if you follow Turtleboy we are constantly getting 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.

As you know if you’ve read Uncle Turtleboy’s “I Am Turtleboy” free speech is under attack in this country, and so too is our democracy. (now available in paperback as well – buy it now!!)

When voices are silenced and controversial views can no longer be spoken in public because they might offend someone, it affects our discourse and is a threat to our democracy. We see this happen all the time on college campuses when radicals shut down anything they don’t like under the guise of silencing “hate speech.”

But it’s more problematic when the media itself is the one pushing for censorship, and it’s antithetical to the purpose of the media and why it exists in the first place. Sadly this is exactly what the Boston Globe has become under editor Shirley Leung, and John Henry’s trophy wife Linda Pizzuti.

Just to be clear, Linda Pizutti is a drop dead gorgeous young woman, who married an older, ugly man, specifically because he has money and influence.

There is no way anyone speaking objectively can say that she is sexually attracted to him, but she sleeps with him anyway because he can give her nice things. If she had a drug habit we would call her a prostitute. But since she’s pretty, well spoken, and has a college degree, we’re not supposed to point that out. However, you come to Turtleboy because we say the things most rational people are thinking, but feel constrained from saying because they know what the outrage mob will do to them. We say the things that we’re “not supposed to say” because we will not self-censor, and we will always speak “our truths” as people like Pizzuti like to call them.

Right after we published this blog exposing the behind the scenes dealings of Sherborn millionaire activist Bob Murchison, Leung, Red Sox President Sam Kennedy, and Entercom CEO millionaire David Field, and how they were using Kirk Minihane’s mental health issues as a way to censor him, WEEI announced they were dropping him from the highly rated morning show.

To be clear, the Globe was the catalyst for this after the took the role of activist earlier this year and began to harass WEEI advertisers under the direction of Shirley Leung and Yvonne Abraham.

Newspapers are supposed to report the news, but under the direction of these social justice warrior pinheads, they have assumed the role of censors. This is the exact opposite of what the media exists to do. These are the same people whining about Jim Acosta being censored by Trump, openly championing for censorship of a media outlet that is critical of them.

As a result of the Globe’s activism Entercom forced WEEI employees to do a joke sensitivity training in February. Meanwhile, the Globe continues to employ Bryan Marquard, who was arrested in 2005 for allegedly masturbating in front of a woman’s apartment door. Sexual harassment and racism are rampant at the Globe.

It should also be noted that part of the reason the Globe vowed to silence Minihane was his relentless and ultimately successful crusade to prove that columnist Kevin Cullen had lied repeatedly about being at the Boston Marathon bombing in his columns. Not coincidentally Cullen was also leading the charge against Minihane and virtue signaling about #MeToo, while working for an employer that has a long and documented history of employing and protecting sexual predators.

Shirley herself stated that she was going to “get” Minihane for exposing her plagiarizing, and yet still employed coworker.

Since Minihane was under contract he could not leave WEEI, and they were paying him to do nothing, so they threw him a bone and gave him a vague gig on, where allegedly he will be more free to say what he wants. I’ll believe that when I see it. Either way, people listened to him because he was on from 6-10, when most people are driving to work. It was convenient to hear his takes, but now he’ll have far less listeners. And what’s the point of this exactly? He’s still employed by Entercom and still saying the same shit. Does anyone actually believe the Globe and Murchison will stop now? Of course not. They’ll be listening to every episode he does and calling, taking notes, and sending harassing emails to Entercom’s advertisers.

Meanwhile, Shirley Leung is having a victory lap on Twitter:

Peep that ratio:

For those of you not hip enough to understand Twitter lingo, ratioed is when you get a disproportionate amount of replies to likes. Normally likes should be much higher than responses, but if you tweet something terrible you get the opposite – ratioed.

Her “column” is equally disgusting, and everything that is wrong with the mainstream media today. I’d link it, but the Globe is trash and I refuse to send any traffic their way. I’ll show you some screenshots of what the garbage she published. Shockingly she calls the results of her crusade the “right call.”

When a beacon of free speech like a major newspaper is celebrating censorship of a competing voice, this is an attack on free speech. Again, buy the book and you’ll see all the ways this has happened to us. I don’t wanna revisit the Erin Andrews thing, but although he might’ve crossed a line by calling her a gutless bitch, he was 100% correct when he pointed out that Erin Andrews has her job because she looks good. That’s it. She’s talentless, awful at her job, and yet she gets paid millions of dollars because Fox treated her like an object of lust, which she is.

Shirley Leung says that people will thank Entercom for censoring the most popular radio personality in New England.

As if everyone listens to him because they hate him. This is how out of touch the Globe is.

Then she blatantly lied by saying that he’s racist.

And of course she provides no evidence to back that up, because she’s a liar who makes things up as she goes along. If the show were racist and sexist I wouldn’t listen to it, but I guess that means all of us who enjoyed it must be racist too.

Then she whined about Erin Andrews some more and praised David Field for being a PC coward sitting in his mansion in Philadelphia.

If Erin Andrews were fat she’d never have that job. That’s just an undeniable fact. Giving a woman a million dollar job because she’s NOT fat, regardless of her lack of talent, is the definition of sexism.

Then this FRAUD bragged about how she was the reason that Minihane was suspended, and the station forced their employees to go through sensitivity training, which everyone else laughed at the thought of.

And then finally she took a shot at Entercom, who did EXACTLY what she wanted them to do (getting rid of Kirk), because they’re not diverse enough.

Here’s the Globe’s editorial staff:

And the rest of their staff.


Anyway, my prediction is Kirk will be back on the morning show within 6 months. I love Callahan, and I have nothing against Mut, but I’m not going to turn to them every morning anymore, and neither should you. Make Entercom and WEEI pay for being gutless. Plus, the show is going to be scripted and they can only say things that Murchison and Leung agree with now.

This morning I listened to Ben Shapiro’s podcast, and this afternoon I listened to Clay Travis. I also can listen to Howie Carr, Dave Rubin, Bill Maher, Bill Burr, Steven Crowder, or Joe Rogan. In January I’ll be able to listen to Kirk. I’m not going to waste my time listening to Alex Reimer talk about the things that Bob Murchison and Shirley Leung are directing him to talk about. Their ratings will tank and they’ll be begging him to come back. I hope he demands more money when they do.

Meanwhile, I’ve reached out to Kirk to tell him I’d be willing to come on his show once it gets going, so we’ll see what comes of that. It looks like he’s completely off his leash now based on yesterday’s tweets:

Shirley didn’t return our emails for comment either.

Feel free to reach out yourself and ask her whether or not she thinks it’s appropriate for the editor of a major newspaper to take such an active role in censoring a competing voice.

Even liberals like Evan Drellich agree that this is a bad thing, because corporate controlled media, under the ownership of the same group of rich white millionaires, is a dangerous road we don’t want to go down.

    This situation totally resembles Republicans that take shit from tree hugging liberals that play fair yet get screwed by the sjw. The few sperm burpers that make the most noise wins.

    They threaten advertisers and harass them so it forces the gutless advertisers that get scared and pull their money. Why can’t we go after the globes advertisers and the shit father that couldn’t keep his daughter a girl, Mr “kneel and” Bob munchson’s business clients?

    I would love to hurt these sjw where it hurts them right in their fucking walllets. I would derive a great perverse pleasure in “Trading Places” with them like Eddie Murphy did, all for $1.00.

    I wish I had the platform in order to start to gardner a few people with money to support this venture. If anyone out there starts to put this together, you will have me to join up and work tirelessly to fight for Free Speech, because 2A will be next on their agenda.

    God Bless America, cause we need it.

    With the exception of Mut and keefe, every full time on air radio personality on weei from 6am-6pm has fuck you money. Maybe not so much for Lou, but he’s not hurting and can leave today and have a job anywhere mlb related paying nicely. None of them bucked or protested or staged a walk out in defense of kirk. That speaks volumes. Kirk was at his best when he went full scorched earth at whatever set him off. The guy was highly knowledgeable about the issue at stake, a pit bull against his target was must listen to radio when he was on. Unfortunately the down times when he would bicker with gerry about when to break or what to talk about next or his ripping on mut was unlistenable.
    Weei needs to take a step back and figure out its next move. Mut and Gerry could work, however they need to abandon the “third person” format. No one cares to listen to reimer, tomase or drelich. They’re all the same. No one wants gary tanguay or trenni. The social justice warrior identity that weei adopted by employing said above + Michael Holley didn’t get the results they were looking for. 98.5 has an all white all straight male format, yet they’re the more liberal looking and inclusive station. And favored by the Globe.

    One time I was down in Southie at flapjacks bar with Ricky Q from the medical tent and sully the cop. A UFO crashed into a trash truck right in front of me and it almost smelled as bad as Shirley’s rotten trench. Luckily Alex Reimer was with me cuz he’s a pissant who hides the gabbagool in Buckley’s hairpiece.

    She is good looking but Pizutti drips sleaze out of every pore. Saw her on Chronicle a while back trying to polish a turd by claiming that cratering subscriptions was a good thing. She’s a despicable person. Gross.

    Who reads these rags anymore? The Globe is dying. If the Globe was a radio show, they would’ve been canceled by now. TB, can you find the readership numbers under Shirley’s leadership? I’m willing to bet they’re down and will continue that way.

    At least Linda Pizzuti sucked and swallowed Dr. Creepy’s dick to earn her status. What did Jonathan Kraft do other than hit the DNA lottery?

    Used to get the Sunday Globe, couldn’t wait to read that humorless twat Yvonne Abraham’s column every week to see what she would blame Trump for. PMS? Trump’s fault. Cullen lying? Trump’s fault.

    When they raised the price, it was so easy to cancel.

    Kirk Minihane is an asshole. I don’t care what he says on the radio, in real life he’s a sociopath. Not a good guy, and sometimes, you have to pay the piper.

    Between his depression and his personality, he became dispensable. He’s a pain in the ass.
    So fuck him. and Fuck Shirley Leung. There are no winners here. It’s like rooting for a war between Iran and North Korea.

    I only listen to satellite these days because of all these Boston media schumcks. Felger and Mazz, Bald Jim Murray, Touch her and Bitch, Dale Arnold, Trannie Kusnierek, Fat tub of goo Tomase. One cunt after another
