Hello Turtle Riders. As you know if you follow Turtleboy we are constantly getting censored and banned by Facebook for what are clearly not violations of their terms of service. Twitter has done the same, and trolls mass reported our blog to Google AdSense thousands of times, leading to demonitization. We can get by and survive, but we could really use your help. Please consider donating by hitting the PayPal button above if you’d like support free speech and what we do in the face of Silicon Valley censorship. Or just buy our award winning book about the dangers of censorship and rise of Turtleboy:
So the boss alerted me today that he got suspended for 30 days because of a post he made as an admin on the Turtleboy Sports Forever page, that was almost 2 months old. Here is the post in question:
The blog that was shared was this one about the Braintree parents who were demanding that the school resource officer remove a blue lives matter flag from his office. Had we not published that blog the racist women who assumed that black students are all inherently scared of a flag that supports murdered police officers like Michael Chesna, Sean Gannon, and Ron Tarentino, would’ve been able to use their white privilege to have the flag removed. But because SJW Hunter shined the light on them, they stopped pursuing it.
Supporting murdered police officers and standing up to racist bullies is a good thing, right? Well, according to Facebook it’s actually bullying. Probably. I have no idea what “standard” this violates since the robot that reviewed it didn’t say. And we’ve been kicked off of Facebook for so many insane things that I don’t even get fazed by it anymore. Read about it on Market Watch if you want to relive the insanity.
Feel free to sign our Change.org petition to get it back, because those never fail.
We’re running out of names. In the past 3 weeks Clarence Woods Emerson, Terrance Collie, Philip V. Prentiss, TB Rider, and now Uncle Turtleboy’s account have all been suspended 30 days. If you have an old name (preferably a couple years old) that you no longer use, and would like to donate it to us to use, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
To cap off this insanity we also got a message from a turtle rider, who clearly meant well, but made me want to rip my hair out.
“Having to follow 17 different Facebook pages just to read Turtleboy is getting old.”
(Bangs head on wall)
Hey, here’s an idea – rather than depending on us sharing content on Facebook, you could just go directly to our website instead. Ya know, because instead of being a slave to Mark Zuckerberg’s algorithms, you can actually choose what websites to visit on your own. Crazy right?
Or you could download the app in order to “consume our product.” It’s available on Google Play and it’s back in the iTunes store. You can also subscribe to our YouTube channel, our SoundCloud channel, our iTunes channel, or follow TBSporty or BristolTC on Twitter.
And he brings up a good point, we should totally create an account that doesn’t argue or incessantly insult people. This will keep us from getting suspended, right?
Oh wait, if you actually paid attention you’d see that we get suspended for telling people to be nice to each other, because this is “threats or depictions of sexual violence.”
Because no matter what you post, when you have a history of calling out problematic behavior, the people you expose will try to silence you by mass reporting you for sexual violence to Big Brother Zuckerberg. People like this with nothing but free time.
It’s chilling how willingly people will cheer on censorship of ideas they don’t agree with. Just read this Reddit thread full of pearl clutching Bostonians, who got Internet wood when they found out we were suspended from Twitter because of people like them. This is the type of misinformation the mob runs with in order to gleefully mass report us to big brother for reeducation.
Looks like Turtleboy Sports is “one guy.” I do not exist. Again. Even though you can hear my voice on old Live shows, and I hear other Turtleboy bloggers on the live shows every single week. We’re redneck white trash from rural Massachusetts and we mock “victims” who break the law and abuse women.
The turtle rider didn’t stop there though.
Oh look, a technological expert. Turns out the ads we have on our site are the reason Facebook is silencing us, even though RevContent and Taboola are two of the most widely recognized and used ad networks on the Internet.
Also, getting rid of the ads will make it easier for him to read the free content, which is really all that matters. We should get rid of the “temporary revenue bandaid” known as advertisements, and institute his solution of…..nothing.
I feel bad writing this because the guy who sent it to us is a fan, and he obviously means well. But it makes my brain want to explode. He said he “really wants to see the site prosper,” and we do appreciate that. However, there are ways you can help out with this.
- You can buy something in the Turtleboy store.
- You can buy Uncle Turtleboy’s book on Amazon, which explains in detail all of the ways SJW mobs and tech companies have used economic warfare to silence our free speech.

We don’t like ads either. They suck. We do have an ad-free platform coming soon where you’ll be able to join for $10 a month, have no ads, and get the weekly newsletter. There are lots of ways you can fight back against censorship that already exist. Thank you for your continued support. Without turtle riders none of this is possible.
