As soon as I saw that Barrack Obama created a Twitter handle (@POTUS), the first thing I thought was, “People are about to say some really racist shit.” That’s because I’m an adult who understands how the Internet works. Then I realized, “This is gonna lead to people freaking out about racism again.” That’s because I’m an adult who realizes there are many, many buttnuts out there who don’t understand how the Internet works. Right on cue, the New York Times proved me right:

It took only a few minutes for Mr. Obama’s account to attract racist, hate-filled posts and replies. They addressed him with racial slurs and called him a monkey. One had an image of the president with his neck in a noose. 

The posts reflected the racial hostility toward the nation’s first black president that has long been expressed in stark terms on the Internet, where conspiracy theories thrive and prejudices find ready outlets. But the racist Twitter posts are different because now that Mr. Obama has his own account, the slurs are addressed directly to him, for all to see.

Within minutes of Mr. Obama’s first, cheerful post — “Hello, Twitter! It’s Barack. Really!” it began — Twitter users lashed out in sometimes profanity-laced replies that included exhortations for the president to kill himself and worse.

One person posted a doctored image of Mr. Obama’s famous campaign poster, instead showing the president with his head in a noose, his eyes closed and his neck appearing broken as if he had been lynched. Instead of the word “HOPE” in capital letters as it appeared on the campaign poster, the doctored image had the words “ROPE.”

The accompanying message said “#arrestobama #treason we need ‘ROPE FOR CHANGE.’ ” It was addressed to @POTUS by a user calling himself @jeffgully49, who has posted other images of Mr. Obama in a noose, and whose Twitter profile picture shows Mr. Obama behind bars. “We still hang for treason, don’t we?” his post said.

The writer, Jeff Gullickson of Minneapolis, subsequently posted on Thursday that his reply to Mr. Obama had earned him a visit from the Secret Service at home. Reached for comment, Mr. Gullickson responded by asking in an email how much The New York Times would pay him for an interview.

Oh shit, you mean nutjobs like Jeff Gullickson are out there amongst us??? Never saw that coming from a country of over 300 million people. I thought every single one of us was a rational human being. Boy was I wrong!! Thanks Internet!!

Anyway, I was going to ignore this story until I saw so many people posting about it, as if it actually matters what the Jeff Gullickson’s of the world have to say. I mean, this guy is trying to sell himself to the New York Times and we’re sitting here pretending like he’s the Attorney General. I’m seeing a lot of stuff like this on the Facebook machine:

Anyone who is “appalled” by this shouldn’t be on the Internet. They will eventually give all of their life savings to the deposed prince of Nigeria. That’s just a scientific fact.

This same thing happened last year at this time when people started tweeting racist things about PK Subban after he beat the Bruins with a game winning goal. The media buzz ouf of Montreal was that the words “PK Subban nigger” were tweeted 22,000 times. The Bruins had to apologize for their “fans” and the Boston Globe reported it as another example of Boston’s racist past.

Then Turtleboy did some basic research. We found out that only eight people in the entire world tweeted those things. Then those eight tweets were retweeted 22,000 times in an attempt to Twitter shame these people. That’s why it was “trending.” Not a single one of the eight original tweeters was from Massachusetts or fancied themselves a Bruins fan. Mystery solved.

Let’s do the same thing again here. We searched for “@POTUS nigger” on Twitter and found that once again, only a small handful of Internet morons were doing this. And just like Jeff Gullickson, they all seemed to be enjoying the newfound Internet fame. Let’s check em out…

Distort. That’s definitely a real name. Definitely. Let’s see what else this guy is saying on Twitter….

Screen Shot 2015-05-22 at 8.50.51 PM

He lives with his Mommy, calls her “mum” and screams that she’s a “dumb bitch woman” when she doesn’t get him his meat loaf fast enough. What else does he have to say: Screen Shot 2015-05-22 at 8.51.06 PM

Oh, that’s nice. What does this numbnuts look like?

Screen Shot 2015-05-22 at 8.53.12 PM

Stop the presses!! A dumbass kid in his Mom’s basement said something racist about Obama!!! What’s this country coming too?? Oh wait, he doesn’t actually live in America, because “Mum” is a word that British kids use to call their Mother, not American kids. This is a kid who sits in his basement on Twitter all day, yells at his Mum, and tapes himself playing video games like this:

Good thing the New York Times is giving him coverage, because this is obviously big news.

Max, “the fijicat” is clearly an influential American figure, so we should pay attention to what he’s saying:

Screen Shot 2015-05-22 at 8.58.08 PM


Remember when he said that he hopes Obama gets cancer? Yea, cancer is kind of his schtick. That and death in general:

And since we’re taking everything this unknown person on the Internet says seriously, we should probably look into this as well:

Screen Shot 2015-05-22 at 9.00.13 PM

Because that definitely happened. Definitely.


Then there’s this guy:

Here’s some of his other tweets:

Screen Shot 2015-05-22 at 9.00.49 PM

Oh look, and Arabic guy who doesn’t like the President of the United States of America. Never saw that one coming. Better bomb every country in the Middle East immediately, because some numbnuts said something racial on Twitter. But please, tell me more about how “racism is alive in America.”

Check out this winner:

Screen Shot 2015-05-22 at 9.48.55 PM

Yup, that’s pretty racist. This is obviously a huge deal since this guy is a widely influential CEO or high school principal right? I’m sure he’s very, very ashamed that he’s now Twitter famous right?

Screen Shot 2015-05-22 at 9.02.54 PMScreen Shot 2015-05-22 at 9.03.20 PM

Oh, you mean he’s actually GETTING OFF on all this negative attention? Never saw that one coming. But hey, let’s keep giving him attention and shock that he desires. That will fix racism.

But look, Chicago Blackhawks enforcer Brian Shaw said some racist things too:

Screen Shot 2015-05-22 at 9.49.03 PM

AH-HA!! See, Turtleboy, it’s not just kids in their Mom’s basements in London. Oh wait…

Screen Shot 2015-05-22 at 9.09.23 PM

A parody Twitter account? What’s that? I’m just a 50-something blowhard who thinks Twitter is a real thing. I’m so confused!!!

Here’s another champion:

Screen Shot 2015-05-22 at 9.54.20 PM

Let’s check out what this guy’s deal is:

Screen Shot 2015-05-22 at 9.03.56 PM

Oh good, a communist. Let’s give him some more attention. That’ll teach him.

And the final person who tweeted a combination of those words:

Screen Shot 2015-05-22 at 9.54.24 PM

Let’s see what he’s all about:

Screen Shot 2015-05-22 at 9.07.58 PM

Rustled? That’s not an American word. You see what happened here? This kid is getting his jollies by taunting us from across the pond. He doesn’t hate black people. He hates America. And Obama is the President of the United States of America. You’re giving him EXACTLY what he wants by getting your panties in a bunch.

You know how you can tell he’s British? Because he’s saying stuff like this:

Screen Shot 2015-05-22 at 9.08.38 PM

That’s how trash talk works in England. Oh well. I saw this Tweet and had to favorite it:

Screen Shot 2015-05-22 at 9.05.20 PM

If he doesn’t follow through and make a Turtleboy song then I’ve lost my faith in overtly racist anonymous posters on Twitter.

Anyway at Turtleboy we call out people for three main reasons – 1) they are a public figure or in some way relevant, 2) to find people to laugh at, and 3) revenge. We could police Twitter and Facebook and be pretend to be outraged when we find nudniks like this. But unlike the 50-somethings who don’t understand how the Internet works, we don’t have time for it.

So in conclusion, racism will never fully be eradicated so long as billions of people inhabit the earth. But the beauty of America is that racists like this will never get real jobs and will never be of any importance to our society. They will live on the fringes and beg for our attention. When you give it to them, they win. Case closed.

    If you’re inclined to make the argument this headline makes, you’re a racist. See, that was simple. 😉

      Arent you the hypocrite troll who uses the N bomb here regularly? Then cry about it?

      Are you not you the one who makes the most racist comments on this site? Then whines about it?

      Sorry Carlo, you lose again. Isnt it time for your mid-day nap? Must be a long day for an elderly man like you chasing all those thug white kids off your lawn in Sutton. Why dont you blog about how Janice Harvey and multiple other users spanked you right out of the WoMag comments? Intellectual cowardice indeed.

      But please, do tell us how non-racist you are because you married a black woman. As if that has never been done before. Its nothing new Old Balls. It happenes everyday he in the USA. This isnt 1937 anymore no matter how much you miss your younger years. Does that mean her family is racist if they dont accept a one trick pony, bigoted, race hustling, elderly, lying hypocrite with no pride? Guess what? NOBODY CARES!

      P.S. Wheres that money from that cowardly bet you made about being the #1 blogger in MA? You didnt even take 2nd. LOL Much like life, you lose again!

    The same sort of thing happened to McDonald’s. They set up an online place where everyone could say how wonderful their McD experience was. Within hours they had to close down the joint ‘cuz it became MickeyD-Hate central.

    Most tweets are just silly anyway. Someone will likely catch on to the joke and ask why Obama is on a POT-US crusade. Ya know… selling POT to the whole US.

      Its the interwebz. Wanna bet alot of the racist comments are from race baitors like Baldino and his crew? Wanna bet a lot aren’t even from this country?

      The internet is a strange thing, you could HATE on any one from any where in the world. Heck, you can even post from space now! Just goes to show you how little thought goes into these “see the USA is sooooo racist!!!!” idiots are.

      The US isnt the only place with the WWWdots ya know…

    There are obviously a bunch of losers amongst us. I was in a convenience store near the Hampton border last weekend
    ( maybe enough said) and I pulled in with two kids in the car. I heard screaming and saw a white 20 something loser ranting to someone and dropping the f bomb all over the place. There were two lucky persons to whom he might have been ranting. Then he started on this f’in blah blah blah had no rights to wear his pants around his ankles and buy a f’in belt. He was heated and I was nervous to get out of the car but I did. Neither of the other two men had particularly low hanging pants. Then it all became clear: he screamed that one was a f’in “n”. I can’t even write out the words. He happened to be yelling at a 20 something handsome black man. There it was. He saw a black man and flipped and thought he had the right to attack him. The black man held back, but, for a split second I saw the hurt in his eyes at the last comment. Quietly the black man muttered something under his breath. I wanted to say something , but, admit I was a little scared and I had 2 kids in tow. I am ashamed only at myself that I let my own fear win. I wish I spoke with the black man to let him know I thought this guy was a POS. Anyways, there are a bunch of racist assholes amongst us. I was hurt by what I witnessed. It would suck to live with that. I don’t know if something started inside the store but there is no need for losers and their scumbag racist comments. BTW, I am a white nearly 50 y/o female.
    I mention my age dear Turtle because your followers aren’t all in the 20-30 demo, as I am sure you know. I just don’t want your haters thinking you only have a certain demo following. And anything to dispel the myth that all white people are racist.
