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.
Look at this infestation of bullshit in Truro:
This. Is. Madness.
The next time I hear some idiot say that we need to protect seals I think my head is going to explode. This is why we’ve had two shark attacks in the last month. Because fat balls of blubber have taken over the outer cape. How can anyone watch that video and not think we have a problem? Let’s look at some of the stupid comments on that video….
Oh shut up Sally. We are not a “guest” in their home. The United States of America owns 12 miles out to sea until we hit international waters. It’s 4,000 miles to France. Their “home” is the 3,988 miles of water outside of Cape Cod. Human beings are not a guest in anything. By that logic we never should’ve settled anything past 495. After all, that was the bear’s home!! We’re just a guest here!! If a bear wants to eat you, you just have to let them do it, because you’re trespassing on THEIR home. See how stupid that sounds?
But wait, it gets stupider….
Upsetting the ecosystem? Bitch, we’re upsetting the ecosystem by letting these creatures reproduce like the Fall River Guttermuppet!! They eat fish. Lots of it. They’re multiplying exponentially. Eventually they will run out of food. In the meantime they will completely drive fishermen out of business. But, fuck them right? God forbid a bunch of people maintain the ability to make a living because it makes you sad that these worthless creatures have to have their numbers controlled.
Then there was this:
So what are we supposed to do, kill the seals? Yes moron. That’s exactly what you do when a species of animal becomes overpopulated. We use strategy and critical thinking skills, which no other species of animal possesses, to control their populations. Because we don’t want to annihilate their population altogether, or make sharks go extinct. We just want to have a nice balance where sharks don’t come to Cape Cod in record numbers every summer like it’s all you can eat night at Papa Gino’s.
“What are we supposed to do if there’s too many deer running onto the highway? Kill them? I think not.”
See how dumb that sounds? And why the hell is everyone so obsessed with protecting sharks and seals, but no one gives a shit about the fish? Does Nemo not have feelings? Newsflash – seals are vicious, mean predators. Their teeth can rip you apart. They eat crabs, squid, and even baby sharks. They’re not nice, cuddly creatures.
And then the dumbest comment of them all……
I’d love to feed this guy to a shark. Admit it – he looks delicious.
Where do they go? They don’t go anywhere. Because we kill them. Of course they can’t go to Canada. Guess why? Because Canada is one of the only countries left in the world that still is smart enough to control their seal populations.
Canadian and Norwegian fishermen enjoy making an honest living, and don’t like it when these ocean bandits steal all their product. Look at the countries that allow it – Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Canada. Ya know what all those countries have in common? Those are the countries that liberals are always telling me we should aspire to be. Except for this issue apparently, in which we use a completely unregulated laissez-faire approach and see what happens.
The reason we can’t kill seals was because of the 1982 Marine Mammal Protection Act:
The U.S. Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA) protects all marine mammals, including cetaceans (whales, dolphins, and porpoises), pinnipeds (seals and sea lions), sirenians (manatees and dugongs), sea otters, and polar bears within the waters of the United States.
Keep in mind, when this law was passed in 1982 it was during the heart of the environmental era. Three Mile Island had just happened, people were protesting the Love Canal, and whale populations were diminishing. I understand why they would want to protect marine life – because allowing unregulated hunting would eventually wipe them out. So it’s really simple – the government acts responsibly, using their brains, and allows hunting when populations become too large, and then disallows hunting when they become too small. It’s really not that hard to figure out.
Or just keep letting people get eaten by sharks, watch as tourism on the Cape disappears, and fisherman and Cape business owners go out of business. Whatever makes you feel good. Because that’s what really matters – your virtue signaling feelings on Facebook.
The bottom line is that the MMPA is a federal law, so Massachusetts does not have the ability to allow seal hunting. It has to be done by congress. So if you want some type of law that amends the MMPA to allow for responsible culling of the seal population, then contact your congressman. Three of them basically control Massachusetts’ entire coastline. Bill Keating represents everything from Westport to Cape Cod to Marshfield, Seth Moulton the entire coast from Nahant to Salisbury, and Steven Lynch has everything from Boston to Scituate. Rhode Island, New Hampshire and Maine don’t have a problem yet, but they will someday. If you wanna see change just call these people up and voice your concerns. If Keating wants to propose legislation that helps control their population it’s going to pass. Know why? Because the congressman from Nebraska doesn’t give a shit. He’ll offer to vote yes on this bill if Keating votes yes on the farm subsidy. Because that’s how shit gets done in Washington – you do favors and vote yes on bills that you don’t give a shit about so that other congressmen return the favor to you.
Or just surrender the ocean because the seals want it. Because that’s Americans do – we surrender to marine life.
