Last week we blogged about a Lynn coffee shop whose manager took to social media to announce that they would not be hosting “coffee with a cop” because she didn’t want to “humanize” cops because they’re slave catchers and murderers. The owner tried to apologize for her daughter the manager, but still justified her behavior by saying that this is what 23 year olds do sometimes. Regardless, her company’s Facebook page was basically a social justice warrior propaganda site that made it perfectly clear that politics dictated their business. Then five days after we wrote the blog Kato Mele, the business owner, decided it was time to shut down permanently because of the negative feedback they received.

Unfortunately for them shit like this happens all the time. It’s why you don’t mix business with politics. Last week a Western Mass business owner saw his business get annihilated online because he was invited to the White House for a bill signing and was seen in the background of a picture with Trump. Or ask any of the bakeries who didn’t wanna bake cakes for gay weddings. When you associate your business with controversial opinions, this has a tendency to happen.

But the Boston Globe apparently doesn’t agree. This is Yvonne Abraham:

She’s a hack columnist for the Globe who was been following this and shockingly hates Turtleboy and believes that the business owner is some sort of victim. Obviously she comes after us in her column, which is a big step for us because we’ve officially graduated from owning the brains of the Turtlegram and Gazette to owning the brains of the Boston Globe. Let’s see what she had to say……

“Especially if they’re women.”

See that right there? That’s why the Globe is a joke and no one takes them seriously. This story had NOTHING, I repeat, NOTHING, to do with gender. It was a person who said cops aren’t welcome at their business. It’s patently absurd to suggest that the fact that she’s a woman had anything to do with this. It’s also backed up by zero facts or evidence.

I do KIND OF feel sorry for the Mom, but not really. She knows her daughter. She knows she harbors these insane opinions, and she still employed her anyway. She was a liability. That was a dumb business move on her part.

Finally, after turning this woman into a tragic hero, Yvonne Abraham started sharing her thoughts on the turtle…..

“…a website that specializes in (and makes money from) marshaling drooling goons for mass attacks.”

Congrats turtle riders, you’ve officially been called out by the Boston Globe. You are all “drooling goons.” That’s a new one.

Of course the real lie here is that you all attacked this business because they “express left-of-center-views.” This isn’t a left of center of view:

This is left of Lena Dunham. This is anarchy. Literally anarchy. She doesn’t believe in law and order. She doesn’t want to humanize human beings.

Then came the imaginary rape threats and more whining:

So….where were the rape threats? Ya know, because her daughter is the kind of person who would immediately share them with the world so she could throw herself a pity party. It’s almost like she’s making it up.

This is what SJWs always do when they do something terrible. They blame people who say mean things to them for being terrible. Because they MUST find a way to victimize themselves. Like when Dianne Williamson posted naked pictures of her tow truck driver and mocked him on Facebook with her progressive friends. We blogged about it, and then she wrote this column whining about the mean things turtle riders said about her. These people are perpetual victims. It’s the only thing they know how to do.

Oh, and “we’re all dumb at 23?” That’s news to me. Why do we keep raising this age where you get a free pass for being a dildo? When I was 23 I had a college degree, a full time job (that wasn’t working for my Mom’s coffee shop), and was paying all my bills and living on my own. I knew better than to do what she did. So no, all 23 year olds aren’t dumb. Just your stupid daughter.

Oh please. The business was failing to begin with. You opened up a hipster coffee shop in Lynn. That’s like opening a Whole Foods in Lawrence, or a check cashing/pawn shop in Wellesley, or a Dentist practice in Colrain. Some things are just a bad match.

But it’s really sad because this woman is basically Mother Teresa and Turtleboy is the devil:

She donated food that was gonna spoil to the homeless shelter. If that doesn’t make a person a white savior I don’t know what does.

Love how Yvonne quotes our closing line though. “We put up with you for a while, but those days are over. Now we burn shit.”

That was easily the best line of the blog and I’m so glad she used it. It just kind of came to me, but it’s so true. We’re sick of always being on the other end of this shit. Our website gets boycotted and attacked by assholes all the time. We don’t whine, we fight back. So yea, when we see people telling cops they’re not human beings, we burn shit. Because two can play that game.

Oh, and Turtleboy is hardly anonymous Yvonne, you must’ve missed the news:

You are Turtleboy too.

Oh, and one more thing – you people reading this are all racist and misogynistic blood thirsty cretins:

So yea, welcome to the turtle Boston Globe. It’s gonna be fun taking you down just like we did to the local media in Worcester. The turtle is all grown up now.


We urge you to support the following local businesses. They provide terrific services for the community!

    Where was the pompous Yvonne Abraham to defend the Christian bakery owners being vilified, attacked, and driven out of business? Oh, that’s right … she only cares about SJWs and those who toe the Progressive line. You’re not fooling anyone, Yvonne. We are not buying what you’re selling. Hypocrisy deluxe, says I.

    It is honestly kind of sad their business was ruined while the writers on this website sit back anonymously collecting revenues from their pain and suffering. TB is no better then this woman. At least she had the stones to share her opinion not behind anonymity. She shared her opinion and TB shared theirs, knowing full well what would likely ensue. Also its great how white nationalists are literally reveling in the comments section, the people who frequent this website are real class acts. I used to think this website was fighting for something good but now I can’t help but cringe at what it has become. Some sort of rallying post for intolerance. Like a wannabe 4chan galvanizing conservative armies to attack ordinary people.

      you”cringe at what it has become”. please award yourself extra virtue sprinkles on your vanilla cone. how dare working class americans express their opinion here without checking with our leftist commissars for political correctness first. oh and what is a white nationalist that you find so vile? is it the white part or the nationalist part? and what WERE the opinions expressed by these vile coffee shop owners that went viral all over the country? “rallying post for intolerance” please……. quite the opposite, after EIGHT YEARS of Obama’s little army of cultural commissars,like yourself, itching to report to Facebook or any other social media ,so as to create a mob and destroy someone or some business with Obama’s DOJ to back em up. you don’t have that muscle anymore so you”cringe”. you are a weasel and a scumbag.

    OOOOO, the Boston Glob (yeah, misspelled intentionally) sticks up for cop haters… I’m shocked. About the only thing that rag is good for is to put down for my puppy to pee on. Yvonne Abraham, you keep telling yourself you’re a real journalist. All the way to the unemployment line. Here’s a suggestion, calling people drooling goons probably isn’t going to bring support to your POV or support to your “victims” who brought the shitstorm on themselves.

      She’s pandering to her base. Lemmings or sociopath true believers all. Pretentious, self-righteous poseurs that live to virtue signal to convince themselves in the Globe’s echo chambers (comments) that they are above the fray and better than everyone else.

      The liberal media has lost their monopoly on informing the masses, and their false narratives and agenda driven “reporting” has been exposed for the Leftist lies and propaganda that it has been for decades. The unwitting slaves have “woke” and turned on their hidden masters – so they have doubled down on using the whip to keep their dwindling herd in line. The only ones staying on the plantation are those suffering from Stockholm Syndrome or too egotistical to admit they have been programmed to be useful idiots.

        great post True! keep it up, there is no shortage of leftist enemies out there. we know abraham gets well paid to attack us but what i’d like to know, is where she ,and other’s like her, get their utter contempt for working class people. i think contempt is perhaps too mild, they have an absolute HATRED of working class Americans. where do they get it from?? anyone have any ideas? it’e real, the intelligentsia in this country wants you DEAD. MS. ABRAHAM where did you acquire this hated and contempt for working class Americans? it cant be because we voted for trump because you have hated us forever. so answer the question you filthy Marxist.

    O-m-g … so we have hate speech for voicing our feelings and putting a person to the flames who is blatantly calling cops not human and that’s not ok because she is allowed to voice her feelings… BUT… we are not allowed to voice our feelings? We are not allowed to call out a business that has leadership that supports this nonsense?? Pretty sure they tried to bury a cake shop for not making a cake for a gay couple, and then there chic-fill-a, hobby lobby, and countless others they tried to take down for not agreeing with their views. Welcome to liberal America where your view only matters if it matches theirs, if not you’re a racist bigot and you don’t deserve to live… all animals are equal but some are more equal than others…

    So if she was sitting in an empty cafe on that Thursday that means that all her regular customers bailed on her. If all her regular customers bailed on her then they all must have been Turtleriders and were upset by the comments. Just goes to show that Turtleriders are everywhere in much larger numbers than most people realize.

    There’s a lotta bullshit going around, coming from everybody. Here’s what I know, personally.

    Kato opened the coffeehouse a year ago with literally no experience in food service, and no business plan to speak of, in a place that is running about twice the rent of neighboring space. She had a kitchen that was included in the rent, and half the shit there didn’t work or worked poorly, yet she never tried to get it fixed or make the landlord fix it. Her response to this was to paint herself the victim of an asshole landlord.

    The guy she had in the kitchen was, at best, a lazy fuck, a pathological liar, and a shitty line cook who claimed he was a chef and had appeared on Iron Chef Japan and could open his own restaurant at any time with “a bag full of money”. She had him on salary, yet owed him several thousand dollars in back pay. She and Sophie were “feminists”, but she kept this guy who calls all women “bitches” and can’t talk to a woman without his mansplaining dick shit on, on her payroll over far better qualified women who were actually doing their jobs.

    After a year she was telling everybody who’d listen she was over $30k in debt. In the weeks before this dumpster fire she cut back her hours, cancelled events and, essentially laid off staff. Her favorite method of management was by passive aggressive text. She constantly texted staff throughout entire shifts. She accused virtually all of her staff, except the most likely guilty party (the cook) of stealing from her. In the last few weeks she watered drinks and was pouring bottles – putting cheap alcohol into premium bottles. I drank a $10 cocktail that was 25% water and cheap booze. I didn’t know whether to be pissed off, or insulted that she thought I was too dumb to notice.

    Her condo in Salem has been on the market for quite some time – long before this shitstorm.

    Sophie CK is a smart, social media-savvy 23 year old who grew up on the internet and handled all the restaurant’s social media. Her posts were on her personal page, but were posted publicly. She engaged people she didn’t know there, many of them White Rose clientele. She is fond of telling people all about how to work social media. She knew exactly what she was doing.

    I’ve been there on several occasions where Kato and Sophie both are venting about everything on the planet, including personal shit nobody wants to hear about, and the business issues Kato had, loudly and in full view of paying customers. One night in particular, I couldn’t pay my check fast enough to just get the fuck out of there.

    The password on the coffeeshop’s WIFI was “resistance”. Spare me.

    Kato had, from her reports, a ton of money being offered by the city in some way, and all she had to do to apply for it is put her business plan together. The city offered her help in doing so, yet somehow she couldn’t get that done. She had plenty of time to text her employees throughout their shifts, though. I can write a business plan in about an hour.

    Conclude whatever you will from this, but this is shit I saw, not read about on the interwebs. Everything that happened to them that was bad was painted as “not their fault”, and one more case of how their lives sucked. Everything good that happened was painted as “what, something happened to me that doesn’t suck?” I’ve seen people do favors for them who pretty much instantly regretted trying to help. The interviews with Kato talking that have been posted in the last few days just make me want to vomit. She wanted out, and guess what? Her daughter gave her an exit that she could paint as just one more instance of her being the victim.

    That is all. Carry on.

    The exact same sentences COULD be used with different nouns in them… a la the Pet Food Store guy, right-wing/alt-right people, ANTIFA… but funny enough, the Globe never seems to care about that. I wonder why?
    It all comes down to the Doctrine of Clean Hands – if you’re going out there pretending to be holier than thou, you better make sure your hands are clean of any blood first. After all, ‘Let thee who is without sin cast the first stone’ – then again, that’s Biblical, so that’s evil to folks of this ilk.
