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.
If you needed another reason to know why U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren is such a garbage human being and politician, she decided to pander to the black community in New Orleans by calling the entire criminal justice system, including police, racist:
Beth Lindstrom, a Republican looking to unseat U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren this fall, called on the Democratic incumbent Monday to apologize for suggesting that the American criminal justice system is “racist.” Lindstrom, a longtime political operative, slammed Warren for claiming during a recent event in New Orleans that the criminal justice system is “racist … front to back.”
Arguing that the senator’s comment is polarizing and “the type of rhetoric that divides us as Americans,” she called on Warren to apologize to criminal justice officers and employees for her remarks.
“Words like this are polarizing and divisive: completely used for personal political gain for 2020, without regard for how they sound to the many good people in Massachusetts and around the country who are tasked with criminals, keeping us safe and administering justice,” she said in a statement. “Sen. Warren needs to apologize to every police officer, judge, corrections department employee, probation worker and the many other honest and decent people in our criminal justice system who have been smeared by her alienating and careless rhetoric.”
Warren’s campaign did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Lindstrom’s call came just days after Warren reportedly raised concerns about the U.S. criminal justice system during an event, which Congressional Black Caucus Chairman Cedric Richmond hosted at the historically black Dillard University in New Orleans.
The senator, an oft-rumored 2020 presidential contender, argued that key failures in the criminal justice system include: disproportionate arrests of African-Americans for petty drug possession, an overloaded public defender system and state laws that bar convicted felons from voting, according to the Associated Press. Lindstrom is among three Republicans running for U.S. Senate in Massachusetts in 2018.
I joined @CedricRichmond at @du1869 for a great conversation about how Democrats can win in November: by standing up for working families and making this government work for the people again – not just the rich and powerful. #RichmondWarrenConversation https://t.co/21vFO1TF0g

Just a reminder that in the last four months in the state she represents the following has happened:
- Two Falmouth cops were shot by a gang banging, black power saluting shithead during a domestic call
- A Yarmouth Police Officer was killed by a career criminal with 125 priors while illegally squatting in a house owned by an absentee landlord
- A Weymouth Police Officer was killed by a career criminal, unarmed person of color, who he chose not to shoot when given the opportunity, possibly because he feared being branded as a racist by soulless, evil people like Elizabeth Warren
- A judge let a major drug dealing Peabody immigrant off with no jail time because putting him in jail would’ve led to his deportation, and he was only selling drugs to provide for his family
- This same judge lowered the bail for a white Maine resident who was arrested for a felony on 495 and ended up killing a police officer in Maine as a result of being free on cheaper bail
- A two tour combat veteran was killed on his way home from seeing his wife and newborn daughter in the hospital by a career criminal, person of color, who was free because an activist judge lowered his bail from $35K to $1K because he was too poor to afford $35K
- Two years ago (I know it’s outside of the 4 months but I refuse to let this story be forgotten) an Auburn police officer was murdered by a career criminal, person of color, who was not incarcerated because the democratic District Attorney said jail “wasn’t working for him” and a judge thought he deserved a 17th chance

This is how “unfair” and “racist” our justice system is. People like Jorge Zambrano, Manny Lopes, Mickey Rivera, and Malik Koval just can’t get a fair shake in this country. Sure, they’ve all been arrested a billion times for serious violent crimes and remarkably remained free. But nevertheless, the system is racist.
I can’t tell you how infuriating it is to hear this sheltered white woman speak like this about the heroes who protect us every day. This type of rhetoric is dangerous. It’s deceiving and contributes to an anti-police culture because it paints law enforcement as the enemy of black people, when in fact data shows that increased policing in predominantly black communities drastically cuts down crime rates. It turns people like Manny Lopes, Malik Koval, Mickey Rivera, and Jorge Zambrano against the police. It teaches them that cops are the enemy they are at war with, and sometimes you have to kill people in war.
What’s even more insulting is she never speaks like this when she campaigns in Massachusetts. Because the African-American population in Massachusetts is a lower percentage than the national average. When she campaigns here it’s always about how banks are the cause of all our problems, or how working class people can’t get their fair shake because of some Disney-esque evil villain who shall go unnamed. Ya know, white people problems.
But the second she gets in front of a room that is predominantly black she immediately plays the race card. Like she did in 2015 when she spoke glowingly about Michael Brown at a NAACP rally:
I speak today with the full knowledge that I have not personally experienced and can never truly understand the fear, the oppression, and the pain that confronts African Americans every day. But none of us can ignore what is happening in this country. Not when our black friends, family, neighbors literally fear dying in the streets.”
But we also know – and say – the names of those whose lives have been treated with callous indifference. Sandra Bland. Freddie Gray. Michael Brown. We’ve seen sickening videos of unarmed, black Americans cut down by bullets, choked to death while gasping for air – their lives ended by those who are sworn to protect them. Peaceful, unarmed protestors have been beaten.
I’m not black. But if I was, I would certainly like to think that I could see right through this woman’s bullshit. She’s pandering to a black audience for political gain. She speaks to them differently than she does to white people. She thinks she’s telling them what they want to here – that their biggest concern is being arrested, while white people’s biggest concern is getting a good interest loan on a student loan.
.@SenWarren is a divider. Her statement about the criminal justice system only further divides our nation and shows her lack of support for our police officers who work to keep us safe. https://t.co/BUfgslX0Tr #mapoli #masen #masen2018 #magop

Look at the biggest issues she believes black people face in this country:
disproportionate arrests of African-Americans for petty drug possession;
an overloaded public defender system;
and state laws that keep convicted felons from voting even after their sentences are complete.
In other words, black people are more likely to commit crimes, end up in jail, and become disenfranchised. But what about the middle class black family from Plymouth whose main concern is the cost of college tuition? How insulting is it that this white woman assumes that they can relate to mass incarceration as a political issue simply because they’re black? THAT is what real racism looks like.
Ya know what the number one concern of all people is? Their job. And right now the black unemployment rate has never been lower, yet she’s acting like black folks have never been more endangered.
Seriously, what do democrats even like about this woman? What has she done for you? Tip O’Neil represented Massachusetts throughout the Reagan administration. The democrats controlled congress the entire time. Yet Tip worked in lock step with Reagan to pay for things like Star Wars that helped bring an end to the Cold War. In return Reagan gave Tip shit that he wanted. That’s how good politicians do their job – they reach across the aisle and get shit done for the American people.
But Elizabeth Warren doesn’t work for the American people, she works for herself. She has no friends on the right in Washington, nor does she want to have any. She’s part of the “resistance,” to Donald Trump, which helps her get elected in a blue state like Massachusetts. And I get why people don’t like Donald Trump, I really do. But what good has her resisting done for the left? She opposed just about every nomination to Trump’s cabinet besides Mad Dog. And yet every single one of them got through. She’ll dig in her heels for the newest SCOTUS justice, but he will get through, just like Gorsuch did.
At what point do democrats say they want someone like Tip O’Neil back?
The RACIST @BostonGlobe which ignored coverage of my being punched in the face by Warren’s henchman AND doesn’t cover us getting FIRST on the ballot, DOES give coverage to RACIST @SenWarren’s DOG and her BS & grandstanding of criminal justice system, which @Harvard architected! pic.twitter.com/ck3K9AjN9o

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – Elizabeth Warren is the Rex Ryan of the Senate. Sexy Rexy used to talk soooo much trash about taking down the evil Patriots every year. Jets and Bills fans would get all fired up because it made them feel good inside. But then we’d do what we always do – beat the shit out of them. And eventually fans got sick of the act because winning was more important than chest thumping. Don’t democrats wanna go back to winning?
The fact of the matter is that there are a disproportionate amount of black people incarcerated because black people commit a disproportionate amount of crimes. This isn’t racist, it’s a fact. I readily admit that this is a long lasting effect of our nation’s racist history, including disenfranchisement, segregation, and slavery. The entire black population doesn’t just snap out of it because a law was passed banning segregation. Increased poverty rates are a result of this, which leads to increased crime rates because the impoverished are more desperate. Black people aren’t incarcerated at higher rates because they’re black. They’re incarcerated at higher rates because on average they make less money.
By her logic we also live in an extremely sexist country too. After all, men are incarcerated 14 times as much as woman. An adult looks at that and realizes that’s because men commit more crimes than women. An opportunist politician says that the system is rigged against men in order to get men to vote for them.
The Boston Herald put it perfectly today – all she does is blame person A for person B’s shortcomings, but she offers no solutions for person B. This week person A was the cops. How can anyone vote for this woman who disrespects police officers like this? You have to be a special type of awful to even consider it.
P.S. We’re not endorsing a Republican in the primary.We like Beth Lindstrom and Geoff Diehl. I don’t really care for Kingston because he’s supported by the worst person ever (who shall go unnamed) and anyone associated with that individual will never get our support.
Double P.S. Speaking of racist, this is also a white woman who still clings to the lie that she is a Native American. It’s laughable. She pretended to be a member of an “oppressed” group so she could reap the benefits that is a direct result of their oppression.
