So earlier we exposed the Mass Health Alliance employee, and WCUW 91.3 FM radio host, Nathan Pickens, and the racist comments he was making about Mesfin Beshir, the founder of the Ethiopian Dream Center. Despite the fact that Mesfin has done REAL positive things for the community and Nate Pickens has done absolutely nothing, Mr. Pickens felt that this validated calling Mesfin a “coon” and “house nigger” amongst other terms:
He also claimed to get a key from the city from Mayor Joe Petty, as well as having Ed Augustus on his radio show. Obviously Joe Petty is going to read that, if he hasn’t already. Like any normal politician he’s probably going to disassociate himself from Nathan Pickens as quickly as possible. After all, who would want to openly associate with such a bigoted and racist human being?
Well, for starters, Tracy Novick. She immediately liked his post:
But we all know Tracy Novick is a joke, so it’s not really surprising. Plus, she basically has a 0.0% chance of winning re-election, since she’s gone out of her way to make herself the most unlikeable person in Worcester in the last two years.
But at least she wasn’t dumb enough to comment on it. Nope, only one city councilor would be that magnificently stupid to voice her approval of Nate Pickens blatant racism:
“So sad.” That’s all District 4 Councilor Sarai Rivera had to say about it. What does that even mean? It’s sad that Nathan Pickens is such a bigoted racist? Or it’s sad that Mesfin is supporting Mike Gaffney for mayor? Well, she confirmed it right away:
So let me get this straight junior smokeshow councilor Rivera. You agree that Nathan Pickens while referring to Mesfin, a man who runs a center that helps immigrants adjust to life in America, has “turned against his race” by supporting Mike Gaffney? You believe that he should say nice things about Nathan Pickens, merely because he is a member of the “community of color?” He shouldn’t be called out by people like Mesfin for being a racist? Ladies and gentlemen this woman is an elected official in the second largest city in New England!! She condones the actions and bigoted beliefs of Nathan Pickens.
She’s taken down all of the posts since then, probably because she realized how stupid it was. Don’t worry though, we’ve got screenshots. Apparently her “so sad” comment was misunderstood. Guess who else was “misunderstood” and Councilor Rivera naturally then compared herself to?
So why did she pick Jesus? Oh yea, that’s right, because she calls herself a “reverend.”
So let me get this straight. She is both a “pastor” and a “doctor” because she got a “doctorate” in “urban ministry” from some place called the Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. Hey, it’s not quite up to the high standards of the Salter School of Theological Seminary, but a degree is a degree, ain’t that right Sarai?
So we wanted to find out what we would have to do to be called “reverend” because quite frankly, “Reverend Dr. Turtleboy” has a nice ring to it. So we applied. This is all it took and we were in:
And a couple forms later we were officially enrolled in the the Master of Arts in Theology. We could’ve picked “doctoral” but we just felt like getting our Master’s today instead of our PhD. We’re officially in. A week from today Turtleboy will officially be a reverend. This is all Sarai Rivera had to do to hide her support for racism behind Jesus.
Sarai Rivera is a pentecostal preacher. These type of preachers are infamous for bilking cash from their parishioners – typically 10% of their take home pay. Unlike catholic or protestant churches where parishioners can give or not give, and are supported by a larger entity such as the Bishop’s Fund, churches like the one that Sarai and her husband run are independent, tax-free entities. AKA you can make a KILLING as a pastor in one of these places. And all it takes is a quick little online doctorate.
She’s kind of got this all figured out, and I have to admit it’s impressive. Think about it. She gets a bogus degree and becomes a pastor. Then she gets up to the pulpit on Sundays and tells people to vote for her and give her money or they’re going to hell. It’s genius really.
Did I mention who her campaign manager was? Why that would be Kevin Ksen, a guy who led the illegal blockade of Kelley Square, but was too gutless to stand in the road. Don’t worry though, we got him on camera leading the whole thing from the sidelines:
He also goes to every city council meeting to live tweet them, because apparently he’s in a never ending struggle with Tracy Novick for most irrelevant person in Worcester. He purposely sits down and refuses to acknowledge the flag during the pledge of allegiance, presumably because he hates America:
So there you have it folks. Sarai Rivera, a woman whose campaign was run by an anti-American repeat offender, a woman who uses the pulpit to ensure her own re-election, a woman who supports known bigot Nathan Pickens, is paid a salary through your tax dollars to spread her hate and filth on our city.
FYI, she’s supported and endorsed by the following organizations:
Vote the Turtleboy ticket in November.
