L’Esperance said there have been no allegations of biased policing made against Graham. Still, L’Esperance said he hopes the reports of concerning social media activity do not reflect on the Vermont State Police as a whole.

One of the UMass students who helped organize “The Triggering” event at UMass Amherst is a woman named Felicia Graham. She came to our attention when she was annihilating hippies in the comments section of The Triggering’s Facebook page:
Boom. Roasted. It’s refreshing to hear this, especially coming from a woman. Because colleges have been training women to treat themselves like victims for years. They’ve told them that they will earn less than men in the real world, not because of decisions they make, but because of rampant sexism. They’ve told them that 20% of them will be raped at some point. They’ve told them lots of lies like this because it fit their idiotic agenda, and many of these moronic students actually believe it.
Not Felicia though. She’s actually smart and uses her brain. Oh yea, and Trigglypuff called her satan:
Nothing hotter than that. If Trigglypuff thinks you’re satan then you’re obviously doing something right.
Anyway, Felicia caught our attention this week because our dear friend Jennie Chenkin, whom she had never spoken to her before, was tweeting to her and complaining that Felicia was harassing her. Ya got that? You can harass people whom you’ve never spoken to before in SJW fantasy land. Luckily Felicia didn’t back down:
And luckily for the world Jennie has not learned her lesson yet:
But while checking out the tweet beef that was ensuing we also noticed that Felicia tweeted out a link to her own blog, about why fighting political correctness is personal for her:
So we read the blog linked here. It’s pretty powerful:
The rancorous disease that is political correctness is one that is particularly personal to me. Ironically enough, this event was held just a couple weeks after the one year anniversary of my father’s forced resignation from the Vermont State Police for Facebook posts made on his personal page. This wasn’t just any resignation; my father had given 16 years to the force, and received various accolades for his service; one of which being recognition from Governor Jim Douglas for saving a drowning woman’s life. These posts, to the sane among the general public, were harmless and sarcastic; certainly not warranting of the punishment he’d been slapped with. I have to tell you, seeing your father’s face on the six o’clock news while his reputation is hacked away by the media is really something.
After six months of unemployment my father, mother, and eight-year-old sister were forced to relocate 800 miles away to Indiana (no other employer would take him in), where he currently works the graveyard shift as a security guard. Not only did they leave behind a home that they had to give back to the bank, animals that they had to give away, and a paycheck 2x larger, they had to leave behind their two oldest children and a majority of extended family as well. Last week, my father drove back and forth to North Carolina (that’s 1,630 miles) in 24 hours for a job interview, just in time to make it back to work.
Let me make this clear: I’m not writing this to garner sympathy. While I firmly believe my father has been wrongly smeared and does not deserve any of what he has gone through, he remains the strongest, most hardworking man I know, and he has certainly handled this situation better than most could. The bigger picture is this: political correctness is more than someone calling you an Islamophobe for questioning Islam, or a bigot for supporting Donald Trump; political correctness ruins lives. Every day, Americans are being targeted for personal remarks that SJWs find offensive, consequently losing their livelihood, some like my father having to start over in a specialized profession with no college degree half way through their lives.
Political correctness is a cancerous phenomenon, and it is out of control. This is why it is so critical to have people like Milo, Christina, and Steven on the front lines battling those who subscribe to this religion of intolerance and misery. You can no longer hold an opinion that is unpopular. No matter how harmless it may be, exercising your freedom of speech is now a justifiable reason for your life to be destroyed. Your employer will not stand up for you, but rather throw you to the rabid pack of social justice warriors who pat themselves on the back while ruining the lives of good people. This is not a hyperbole, this is my reality.
Beautiful. She hit the nail on the head – political correctness ruins lives. We’re not fighting back against this bullshit solely because it’s fun (although it definitely is fun). We’re doing it because these people are destroying American freedom and trying to deny people the right to pursue their livelihoods. Just look at Turtleboy Sports. All we do here is report the cold hard truth. And what do the PC police do in response? Organize boycotts of our sponsors. They don’t care about hurting small business. They only care about censoring speech they don’t like. Unfortunately for them Turtle Riders fought back by flooding our advertisers with business, and we urge you to continue to do so.
It’s one thing when Curt Schilling gets fired by ESPN for tweeting out his opinions. ESPN is a private corporation that doesn’t hide it’s PC agenda. But the Vermont State Police? Why don’t public servants have the right to speak on matters of public concern? This right has passed constitutional review by the Garcetti vs. Ceballos decision in the Supreme Court.
“This just goes against the fabric of the State Police,” Colonel Tom L’Esperance told New England Cable News. “This is something that can’t be tolerated. If this was something that we picked up on in the hiring process, we wouldn’t hire a person like this. That’s how serious this is.”
See this guy right here?
He is a sellout and a chump. By his own admission Trooper Graham was a good cop:
This only became a story because two buttnut activists named Sean Powell and Jocelyn Galvano-Pickett. This site did some pretty extensive research to figure out who they were. They are everything you dreamed they would be:
Honestly, I can’t believe we never heard of this story until now. Vermont really isn’t that far away and this was like the perfect storm of something we’d blog about. Political correctness and police haters censoring free speech. Right up our alley. Let’s look at some of the things he wrote on his Facebook page that cost him his job:
So what? It’s a guy venting about a dooshnozzle he encountered at work. God forbid.
I don’t care that Aaron was introduced as the first male gay character on The Walking Dead. Plus, Negan probably killed him anyway. And Turtleboy has zero problem with gay marriage either. But the man has a right to feel like the PC police were forcing a certain agenda down our throats. Because it’s true. It’s a scientific fact. Like I said, I have never had a beef with gay marriage. I just have a beef with Macklemore winning a Grammy for it.
Immigration is a matter of public concern. Vermont is also a border state. Seems to me that he is speaking as a private citizen on a matter of public concern. He is not making this post from the Vermont State Police page, he’s making it from his. And he has every right to hold this opinion.
Thank you!!! The fact that we have to accept some abstract concept of “white privilege” as a fact is insane. He has every right to say that this is complete and utter bullshit.
Uh-oh!!! You can’t make fun of Bruce Jenner!!! Didn’t you get the memo?? He’s brave!!!
OK, this is the only post that is really problematic. Because he’s discussing fantasies of causing harm to a person because of their political affiliation. That’s a big no-no. But at the same time he didn’t actually do anything. He should’ve been called into the bosses office and told not to write posts like that one anymore. But fired? Give me a break.
Here’s all that really matters – was he a good cop on the clock? And the answer seems to be yes. In 2009 he was awarded the Vermont State Police Lifesaving Award for saving a girl who was about to drown in a river. Someone is alive today who would most certainly be dead were it not for this man. But now Vermont has one less lifesaving cop on the force because he doesn’t like Bruce Jenner and is extremely right win, which ironically makes him just like Bruce Jenner.
What makes this even more bullshit is that you only get fired from jobs if your controversial speech slants to the right. For instance, Boston University Professor Saida Grundy is still employed and had no disciplinary action handed down after she posted these things:
All of those things are offensive and generalize people based on the color of their skin. She openly condones rioting AND shits on Bruce Jenner, just like the trooper did. But yet she gets to keep her job and he has to resign. Makes sense. Gee, I wonder why people are angry and upset about political correctness?
This is why The Triggering was such an important event. Because like Felicia said, political correctness isn’t just annoying hippies whining about their butthurt. It affects people’s lives. It encourages politically correct HACKS like the sellout higher ups in the Vermont State Police who sold their brother down the river, to do what’s easiest instead of what’s right. And most importantly the people of Vermont have lost someone with a proven track record of saving lives. This puts us all in danger and it needs to end.
We urge you to support the Turtleboy Sponsors by doing business with them. Without them none of this is possible. Click on any of them to check out their sites or Facebook pages.
