Turtleboy Investigates

Exposing Grifting Fake Pastor Con-artist Talbert Swan: $81K In Unpaid Child Support, Tax Evasion, Open Racism, Homophobic Book, And More


Bishop Talbert Swan is a grifter, con-artist, fake pastor, BLM activist who I’ve had my eye on for quite some time. He’s a blue checkmark on Twitter who frequently calls out Trump and other people for being racist and not paying their taxes. Except he owes a lot of money in child support, evades taxes, collects welfare, drives fancy cars, wrote a book about how to convert gay people, and uses racial slurs on Twitter. Yet he’s legitimized by politicians and feared by people who know about the woke mobs he can unleash on them. Click here to read my investigative story on Talbert Swan on TB Daily News.

    This asshole argued with me on MassLive last year calling me racist as I questioned grown men huddled up at the wee hours of the morning wearing hoodies on one of the hottest days of July. I was called racist because the hoodies were nothing more than black fashion.
    By the way, his fat ass wife has dyes blond hair which is CULTURAL APPROPRIATION and should be shaved off thus allowing her Brillo to regrow naturally.
    Swan is a shit headed fake shakedown artist who doesn’t have the balls to appear with city leaders. I’ll wait for his reply to this like he did on MassLive. I know he won’t- he’s just a scared little pussy hiding behind his complexion.

    Is it possible Talbert Swan fathered one of Monica Cannon-Grant’s offspring? That might explain some of her anger issues.

    Blacks can’t be racists. “White Privilege?” Sounds racist to me, but I’m white, so of course it would. “Black Entertainment Television” or BET as it’s known? Sounds racist to me. “Ebony Magazine?” Yup. “Affirmative Action?” I could go on and on.
    “Black Lives Matter?” WTF… of course they do. The only ones who think that any white person doesn’t believe that… is a racist piece of shit themselves. Keep pointing out race. That’ll change everything. Look how far the Black race has come since the 60’s. Three and sometimes four generations… but it’s my fault because I’m white and I’ve oppressed their race.

    Guess what I haven’t done? Had 5 children with 3 different woman, and then disappeared leaving them to live off of other whites with all their tax paying privilege. Did my being white make me smarter? Did my white privilege make me understand birth control is important? Did being White allow me to pull out faster when I didn’t use birth control because my dick is smaller than a black man’s? Do I have the ability to think “I’m not ready for a child” or “I can’t afford a child” and black men don’t have that ability?

    Seems like whites can’t get away with anything remotely ‘racist’ (example Drew Brees) while this guy and other blacks (Monica Grant etc.) have carte blanche.

    Nice pic with “Rev” Al. Probably taught him all his moves. Al owns nothing. Not even his underwear. It’s all owned by one of his nonprofits and Al just “borrows” it. He’s judgement proof.

    Just what exactly does a jig have to do earning the title reverand-pastor or bishop?
    How can you be so morally bankrupt and selfish pretending to be a man of G_D? I hope there is a special place in hell for religious imposters like swan.

    Gee Talbert ! Why did you settle for “Bishop”??
    Why not just make it Pope??,you fucking race-baiting, hate-mongering POS !

    I guess today’s one of those days on Turtleboy

    Two words: False Prophet

    1 John 4:1-6 – Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world

    Matthew 7:15 – Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

    2 Peter 2:1 – But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

    Matthew 24:24 – For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if [it were] possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

    Romans 16:18 – For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple

    It’s one thing to be this angry, it’s another to do it while masquerading as a man of the cloth

    It was great when Masslive had comments accompanying their socialist bullshit articles. This motherfucker Swan would actually get in pissing matches with multiple commenters on there. It was fucking hilarious! You could gaslight that fucking shithead and he would spew some fucked up racist bullshit and Masslive never, ever censored his comments. I have also seen some of the outrageous insanity he posts on twitter, though I do not use that crapfest. From what I hear, he posts racist shit that would land any white person in the cancel culture trash can.

    THIS is why you don’t loan black people money or give them anything for that matter. I’m not really afraid of them but at this point I do everything I can to actively avoid black people. I dont talk to them, I dont go near them, I stay out of their neighborhoods, I dont enter business relationships with them, etc. There is absolutely nothing good that can come from any type of interaction with them right now.

      Can you give him a loan? Don’t worry, he PROMISES to pay you back with his tax refund. Then, just like all the other tax refunds, the govt kept it. Unfortunately we all support that deadbeat. We don’t have a choice.
      The stimulus check has become the new tax return.

  • Nit Surprised
    July 21, 2020 at 2:39 pm

    He must be too busy trying to fix the racist system to get a real job and pay his bills. They should audit his food stamp money because his wife looks like she likes to eat
    His hatred if white people is because he is a true racist. And the Massachusetts politicians should be shamed for kissing his ass for votes. Where’s Maura Healey?
    She must be too busy suing Trump and attacking the police
