El Prez Called Into Kirk Minihane’s Live Stream To Complain That Turtleboy Exposed That His Company Is Raising Money For Domestic Terrorist Groups


Let me start by saying that I have nothing but respect for Dave “El Prez” Portnoy. He invented entertainment blogging when he created Bartstool Sports over 15 years ago. He could’ve pursued a career in teaching or used his degree from Michigan to get a better paying job, but instead he started printing out magazines he wrote and handing them out every morning on the MBTA. He built that into a blog and he’s now worth over $100 million.

I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that I looked up to him. He’s done everything that I ultimately want to do. He built his brand by saying things that millions of other people are thinking despite intense backlash from SJW mobs, he refuses to apologize for it, and he delivers it in the funniest way possible.

But I admire him more for being a marketing genius. This is a guy who got a stadium full of people to wear Roger Goodell clown shirts, got arrested for peacefully protesting at NFL headquarters, and just won an auction to watch a MNF game with Goodell only to be denied for failing a background check. I’ve criticized Barstool a million times for selling out and becoming Huffstool, but as far as the content he puts out it’s still good. I’m just personally not a fan of the direction some of his employees are taking the company, but as long as he’s cashing checks then more power to him.

With that said, on tonight’s Barstool Sports rundown El Prez complained about this tweet and this blog at the 10:30 mark.

“This guy Turtleboy has been around forever, did a pretty big misquote for us. Saying I spiked Blind Mike blogs and let Ellie, who didn’t even do it.”

Well, he did in fact spike a Blind Mike blog criticizing Trenni Kusnierek for calling West Point cadets white nationalists because they played the circle game. And Barstool did in fact refuse to post a blog with a link to Kirk Minihane’s interview with Donald Trump Jr, even though they regularly let other bloggers put links to their interviews in blogs. Like when PFT interviewed Andrew Yang. Andrew Yang won’t offend people because he’s a liberal, but DTJ will because he’s conservative. One gets put up and the other doesn’t, even though DTJ is incredibly influential and the son of the President.

But his big beef is that Ellie Schnitt didn’t write a blog raising money to bail domestic terrorists from Antifa out of jail, she only tweeted her support for it.

But I never said she wrote a blog about it. I pointed out that she tweeted out support for domestic terrorists, which she did.

And I’m sorry, but when you get your platform from Barstool Sports, and you get the blue checkmark that comes along with it, you are speaking as a representative of your company. Welcome to grown up world on the Internet. You know how many people have lost their jobs because they tweeted some stupid shit?

I recognize that Ellie had a platform and a large following before coming to Barstool, but Ria was literally just some blonde they pulled off the street to bring in a new demographic. She talks about The Bachelor and if she were 15 pounds heavier she’d be a waitress at Perkins. That’s just a fact. She is nothing without Barstool, pretty much any 20 year old chick in New York can do what she does, and because of them she has the ability to tweet out whatever she wants to 250,000 people. Her handle is literally @BarstoolRia. It doesn’t matter if you’re publishing a blog or tweeting it out, you represent Barstool the entire time.

After that Dave called into Kirk Minihane’s live stream tonight to air his grievances.

“From this Turtleboy guy who I’ve known about forever, he’s a fucking clown.”

It’s true, he has known me forever. We go way back.

“He started early, I’m worth $100 million and he does it for free.”

“Banner ads don’t count.”

Dave should know more than anyone that nothing is done for free. And quite frankly, I’ve overcome a million more obstacles than he has to still be here today.

  • I’m being sued by 6 people right now
  • I’ve beaten more bogus lawsuits and harassment orders than I can count
  • I had a former employee attempt to sabotage my business from the inside for a year
  • I’ve been blacklisted by Google AdSense
  • All of my advertisers get relentlessly harassed and boycotted
  • I had to start a second website because of this
  • I was banned from Twitter for a year and couldn’t get back on until I bought a new computer
  • I lost a Twitter account in 2017 that was followed by close to 20K people including a bunch of blue checkmarks, and probably would have close to 100K at the rate I was growing
  • I lost a Facebook page with 112K followers in 2017 and probably would have close to half a million followers at the rate I was growing back then (3,000 a week)
  • I’ve lost over 40 pages since then, I’ve had my life threatened more times than I can count, I have restraining orders out on multiple people
  • Stories that I break constantly get stolen by the mainstream media with zero attribution
  • I basically survive on people purchasing the ad free subscription and donating during the live show

Barstool Sports has never had a Facebook page or Twitter account taken down. They’ve never been silenced. When he gets sued he doesn’t have to worry about paying legal fees because he’s worth $100 million. His marketing and sales are taken care of by a team, and I hustle solo.

Nevertheless, I still respect Dave, and I would say borderline idolize him. How could I not? I’m a blogger and a podcaster who makes a living saying the things that people think but can’t say out loud. But the fact of the matter is that we do different things. Dave’s earlier blogs that the company was built on were controversial, but his employees write 150 word blogs about Rihanna. I write long blogs, I expose assholes and corruption, I talk about controversial topics, and I investigate things the mainstream media isn’t. It’s a completely different business model.

Besides that he mostly argued with Kirk about semantics, claiming that I misrepresented Barstool by suggesting that they publish blogs supporting domestic terrorist group bail funding, when in fact all his employees did was tweet about it. But then Ria’s podcast today put this out:

Barstool’s podcasts are much bigger than their blogs at this point. They have one of the largest podcast networks in the world, so their platform is huge. If they share links in their pods then those organizations are gonna get donations. And look at who Barstool is advocating that people donate to. The Antifa run Unicorn Project, that put out this gem the other day in Minnesota.

“We could have more fires, yea. We have plenty of structures that need burning. We ask our city officials to take down these structures, they haven’t, so we’ll do it for them. It’s easy work, ain’t nothing to it. We built this country and we will burn it down. The dogs need to answer to their masters.”

Reclaim the Block, whose main goal is to “defund the police.”

Colin Kaepernick’s non-profit grift, “Know Your Rights Camp.” Same guy who wore pig socks and compared police to slave catchers.

Campaign Zero, which is just an assortment of anti-police propaganda.

The Minnesota Freedom Fund, which is bailing out Antifa and other domestic terrorists who have looted, rioted, and assaulted cops and people attempting to protect their businesses. It says right on their website that they work to get illegal immigrants released from ICE detainment.

And finally there’s “Fair Fight,” which is Stacy Abrams never ending fundraiser that she uses to cash checks because she still hasn’t admitted that she lost fair and square, and she will never be Governor of Georgia.

I listened to their podcast for 10 minutes and I couldn’t do it any longer. Here were some memorable quotes.

“Why do you need 4 police officers to pin someone to the ground?”

I dunno stupid, maybe ask a cop. Like this one from the Bronx who was nearly murdered by a bunch of assholes who Barstool is raising bail money for.

“Ria and I are upset, we’re sad, we’re frustrated. It feels wrong to talk about anything else.”

Oh fuck off. You’re upset? You’re sad? Here’s an idea – grow the fuck up. None of you frauds actually cares about George Floyd, and you certainly don’t give a shit about Ron Tarentino, Sean Gannon, Michael Chesna, the 5 cops in Dallas who were assassinated by a BLM protester, or any other police officer or business owner that’s been assaulted or killed by these assholes.

“This has now happened so many times.”

A grand total of 41 unarmed people were killed by cops in 2019. Nine of them were black. This has not happened “so many times.” Ya know what has happened hundreds of thousands of times during that same time though? Kids have been getting raped. Why don’t you raise money for them instead? But of course that would actually require reading, instead of getting your news from the blue checkmarks you choose to follow on Twitter.

“As white people we do not have the right to dictate how these protests go forward.”

This is Barstool Sports. Newsflash – you absolutely have the right to ask rioters and looters to cut the shit. I know you’re young, stupid, and ridden with white guilt. But your gender studies professor lied to you.

“Fran and I acknowledge that we are white, we are privileged, we will never fully relate to the struggles that people of color face every single day.”

You’re not privileged because you’re white, you’re privileged because you’re hot chicks. Everything in life will be handed to you as long as you don’t get fat. You don’t know what it’s like to be a person of color because people of color are not a monolith. They all don’t think and feel the same way, and it’s pretty racist of you to suggest they do.

“We will stand up for what is right.”

Be more basic. You can’t.

“We’ll work on ways to be anit-racist, instead of just not be racist.”

At that point I turned it off.

So yea, I still have all the respect in the world for everything Dave has done to get where he is today, but I was 100% right. Without him even knowing it, his company has become a radical left wing rag that raises money for Antifa and other domestic terrorists. He can try to say it’s just tweets, but clearly it’s not.

    The list of excuses for your business failures is one of the saddest and most pathetic things I’ve read today…which is really saying something. Your failures belong to YOU for constantly blogging about people so far down the societal totem pole they are desperate and irrational and extreme. Hence your 6 lawsuits. Also no one gives a shit about them in the first place which makes your risk/reward factor a huge problem. Would’ve had 500k Fb followers, should’ve had 200k twitter followers. You have nothing but a dogshit interface spread out over two sites that nobody can navigate. I agree with many of your opinions, but be better and pick better fights.

    Maybe instead of whining about how Portnoy has $100 million and shitting on his perceived luck of avoiding the social media pitfalls TBS has weathered, you should look in the mirror and and question your own shit. Maybe he didn’t go down the road you are on because he knew repeatedly attacking people the way you do leaves one vulnerable to growing a business. Make sure you have a well-funded org. before you need the corporate lawyers.

    Even though I like both of you I guys, I believe Unc is the better man here and he definitely has and does more with less.
    That said, since the two of you guys have pretty powerful platforms and do in fact seem to be level headed, (excuse Portnoy’s cockiness) I hope you two can make amends.

    I heard before the pandemic forced everyone home Barstool was taking their no dress code at work thing a little too over the line. Strongly suggesting workers would get raises if they worked with their tits or dicks out, double if they worked completely nude, triple if they slept with Portnoy (or if they were gay, slept with Feitelberg). There’s also a lot of cocaine heroin and booze consumed in their building. They had to fire Francis cuz he went on a heroin-fueld rampage around the office destroying furniture pouring milk all over himself and asking where their God is now as he whipped his dick out at people with visitors badges.

    What is it with barstool sports never seen it, it sounds like the worst version of sports by sports fans for other sports fans in other words 3rd or 4th hand observations about things I can watch 1st hand. I don’t need hipster new yorkers explaining sports to me. The 25 year old bimbos may have some talent but TB is correct they are a dime a dozen, nice looking but most women are in their 20’s its biology. These chicks are easily replaced and would never build a thing on their own. These bimbos are internet age version of rock star groupies who get to hang around with the band and believe the album and tour was their idea.

    But $100 million dollars that is saying something. Now I understand why the bimbos are around and why men admire him.

    Oh look, another “rich man is bad” blog. Face it. You fucked up. You thought you swung a bigger stick than you actually do, and the world is proving how wrong you were. Why else do you think you’ve gone through umpteen twitter accounts and Facebook pages? Or why you’re constantly forced to sing for your supper while Portnoy is cashing checks…

    Barstool sold out to their masters long ago and will get the reward they deserve. Financial reward and integrity are usually inversely proportional. Coveting dollars or fame without integrity is a fools errand. Stay the course. Oh I forgot….Professional sports causes global warming..

      June 2, 2020 at 10:15 am

      Hard to say. Uncle TB is obsessed with attention, especially from his “betters,” even its negative attention. But it had to sting a bit when Portnoy said “he’s been around for years” and yet Portnoy had never once before acknowledged that fact because “he’s a clown.”

  • randiguy2006
    June 2, 2020 at 9:34 am

    You sound like an abused spouse asking your spouse what he wants for dinner.

    Notice how easy you insult powerless people everyday but can’t criticize Portnoy without also sucking his dick. That’s called cowardice. And let’s be real. You do it because you long to be on Barstool. This current gig isn’t turning out like you want. You’re a little punching bag for them.

    Oh and that list of obstacles? Stop whining. Each and everyone was self inflicted. Dave succeeded because he is better than you. You can’t even keep the few bloggers who were contributing good stuff.

    Also, Dave is smart enough to handle comments section. Yours is a cesspool. You will never have the voice you want unless you CHANGE. But I think you like playing the victim. It’s attracted a handful of other men feeling sorry for themselves, but in the end it can’t go much further than it has. Which is fine if that’s what you want. Just stop complaining about it.

    Pandering to teenage girls who listen to 94.5 and think they’re “down with the cause”. Again, instead of donating to bail out terrorists they should be out in the street having these conversations they’re so concerned about. Instead they’ll just talk to other scared white girls and shit their pants when they see a black guy on the street. Hypocrisy is so thick you could bulldoze it.
    Also, TB, keep doing what you do. All the trash that goes after you for sharing the truth know their day is numbered. The screeching is loudest when you’re over the target. Keep it loaded.

He wrote a juvenile blog and now has a house in Nantucket. You wrote a juvenile blog and now you have a house in Grafton. Not a bad deal.

        He’s gay! That means he likes men and is a homosexual. Don’t you get it? He’s not straight. This means he is gay because he is attracted to men. That’s how homosexuality works. Don’t be so ignorant and bigoted.
