If you like free speech and want to support what we’re doing, feel free to donate to the Turtle fund:
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.
Saw this post making the rounds from Laconia, NH…..
Little background here. Lt. Mark Miller died in a a diving training exercise in 2004 at The Weirs, which is a beach at Lake Winnipesaukee in Laconia. The guy on the City Council is Bob Hamel, a former cop who now appears to be a right wing, anti-union elected official. And he’s currently in a pissing match with the firefighter’s union, the details of which we care very little about. Because nothing bores turtle riders more than small town politics.
All you need to know about Bob Hamel is that he’s one of these:
The “I stand for the flag” people are some of the more self-important nudniks on the Internet. Bro, we get it – you’re so Patriotic. You piss red, white, and blue. We were all wondering what you do during the National Anthem while at home watching the game. No I know – you stand at full attention in front of the couch, put your hand over your heart, and sing at the TV. You obviously love America WAY more than the rest of us.
But what does make this turtle worthy is that he appears to be be mocking Kelseys’ deceased father, Lt. Miller, with this comment:
“I know you guys think you can walk on water, but there was a man in this town a long time ago who said he could walk on water and he tried it up on Weirs dock and he didn’t.”
Obviously the union guy speaking didn’t care too much for that, because Hamel appears to be mocking a dead firefighter. The chief tried to hold him back but he pulled a “don’t hold me dog” and gave him a staredown that went deep into his heartless soul….
Don’t worry though – Bob Hamel had an excuse ready to go….
Hamel later walked up to the firefighters and said he knew and liked Miller. He said he was referring to a self-proclaimed minister named Red Dunn, who once said he could walk on water and tried to do so without success at The Weirs. On Tuesday, Hamel said he mentioned the anecdote only because it points up the danger of having an overly inflated sense of self, but that, in retrospect that he could see how the comment could be open to misinterpretation.
Wait…..what? He was referring to a “
self-proclaimed minister named Red Dunn”who said he could walk on water and ended up dying at the same place Lt. Miller did? Well, if this guy is so well known that a City Councilor would reference him and assume the room would get the reference, then Red Dunn must be all over the Google machine right?
Nope. Google “Red Dunn The Weirs.” Guess what comes up first? The most recent story about the City Council meeting. The only article we can find about a Red Dunn in Laconia is this one, about in 1961 when Red Dunn ran for Ward 5 City Council. No mention of drowning or being a preacher who thought he could walk on water. And the City Councilor looks old, but not that old. There’s just no way possible he could’ve been referencing Red Dunn in his comment.
Of course he was talking about the firefighter. Of course he was mocking a dead guy to score political points. And it backfired in his face. But instead of just being a man and apologizing he has to make up some bullshit story about Red Dunn that no one believes.
Dooshnozzle of the day – Bob Hamel.
