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. 


As many of you know, and many of you have already read, I published a tell-all book about the origins of Turtleboy Sports, including my background as a public school teacher in Worcester and at Shepherd Hill (now available on Amazon). There’s some crazy stuff in there that I’ve never told anyone before, about death threats I’ve received, Facebook and Twitter censorship, public confrontations, and other obstacles Turtleboy has had to overcome in its journey to be the voice of the people. For instance, Steve Levine was my realtor, and SSTG’s blog on him (the biggest of 2018 thus far) was a really dicey situation behind the scenes for me as the editor of the blog. That’s a wild story no one knows about except readers of the book. Every day I actually remember more stuff I forgot to put in the book, like the Trojan Chromebook that UPS brought to my house and all the new magazine subscriptions someone opened in my name.

The book is primarily about the fight against censorship, the many ways big tech and other outside forces use unethical methods to silence speech they don’t agree with, and how it’s a direct threat to our democracy. You might not like the colorful language our bloggers use (especially North Shore Turtlebabe and South Shore Turtlegirl) but the fact of the matter is that we have broken some really big stories that would’ve never happened if we didn’t exist.

One of the ways that people attempt to silence us is by abusing the courts with frivolous defamation lawsuits. And in the ultimate stroke of irony I am now being sued because of what we published in the book about a particular ongoing lawsuit. I can’t get too into it, because my lawyer has advised me not to (don’t worry, when it’s all done I will explain it all, and it’s INSANE). All you need to know is that this book is so good it’s already getting us sued. They don’t want you to read it. There is no length these people won’t go to in order to stop us from exposing them. If you haven’t read it yet you can get it her on Amazon:

If you have read it then please feel free to give us a 5-star review with a little blurb about what you liked about the book. We read them all and they mean the world to me personally. I don’t wanna brag, but there’s 44 ratings on there right now and they’re all 5 stars. I enjoyed writing the book and I’m glad you’re enjoying reading it.

Doing this for a living isn’t easy. I’m not gonna lie – it’s been a rough year. Last year (2017) was great. We were growing exponentially because of our Facebook page with 112,000 followers and Twitter with 20,000 followers. We were paying the bills and then some with Google AdSense and looking to make some major investments to bring Turtleboy to the next level.

Then the attacks started happening. Twitter blacklisted us and Facebook has taken down 32 of our pages, as well as changing their algorithms so we’re virtually invisible on your timeline. I put on a front that everything is fine and dandy because I hate letting these speech Nazis think they’re winning, but the fact of the matter is they’ve done some serious damage. We get by, but it’s not easy. I’m not collecting food stamps yet, but if free speech actually existed I’d feel a lot better about where we’re at. We don’t make much off the ads on our site anymore since we’re blacklisted by Google and lawyers to defend ourselves against these frivolous lawsuits cost time and money.

But luckily turtle riders have really helped out by donating to the Turtle Fund by hitting that PayPal button.

We graciously appreciate every singe one of you who has helped us fight back against censorship with your generous donations. I’m not kidding when I say that we could not have survived the year without it. Every time I see a donation it reinvigorates me because I realize that there are people behind us who are fighting alongside of us.

So please, if you’d like to see Turtleboy keep going, then buy a hoodie in the Turtleboy store, buy the book, get yourself a decal, and/or buy I Am Turtleboy on Amazon so we can keep being your voice on the Interwebs.

    Trojan Chromebook? Do tell…..
    Magazine subscriptions? How Columbia Record Clubbish…
    Too bad FB is whacking you….seems they got a hold of Michael Cedena in a manner that his stuff gets knocked off but pages put up to jail him and another with his name, pics, and the like, on it stay up.
    Facebook sure has its politics….not a good thing for free speech.

    TB, i love ya guy, i truly do. But how on gods green earth have u not learned enough to keep the amazon ratings to yourself at this point. Your enemies are the dumbest of the dumb yet you lead them to the low hanging fruit. Im at least glad it lasted long enough for you to get a decent sampling of real reviews. My moneys on the rating plummeting as i type this tho.

    Anyone know where I can download a pdf of I am turtleboy? I’m not willing to pay for a copy.

    Can’t find it on any torrent sites either.

    I don’t think you know what “ironic” means.

    And you’ll never get to the “next level” with the comment section being what it is.

    Racist comment in 3…2..1…

    I’m inspired.  I just bought the book on Amazon.

  • The Endless Scroll of Ads and Rehash......

    The practically ENDLESS scroll of ads and rehash of past TurtleBoy articles, just to get to the comments, speaks volumes regarding how this website is TRULY doing! Not well!

    Thus the constant desperation for donations and “buy my book!”

    It’s actually kind of pathetic!

    Humorous, too!

    Please for the sake of your readers’ sanity please change your website.
    The constant pop ups and redirects are more annoying than having something in your eye that you can’t get out.
    And the ad that plays on the lower left is the worst of all. It stops whatever I have playing in another window so I can either listen to that or read the articles, but not both. Clicking on the “x” half the time opens it up or does nothing. I don’t like being forced to do anything.
    There’s just so much to hate about this site.
    You think you could put a little effort into the drop down menu too? Home shouldn’t be the only thing on it.
    Navigating through TBS is just the ultimate pain in the ass. It’s a good thing it’s real news and written in a way that real people speak otherwise I wouldn’t even bother. I dread having to come here, but where else am I going to find the real bs going on around here and virtually people watch?
    Have your writers do a better job with typos. It’s such a pet peeve. That’s the easiest and most basic part of their job.
    Can you make a decal that isn’t piss Turtleboy? That one is a little too cheesy and unoriginal. You’re better than that.
    I’ll continue to spread the word about your work. It would be nice to not have to warn people about the annoyances when I do. When I have a little extra I will certainly donate. Anything to improve this mess of a site.

      Suck it up, snowflake. Join the 21st century and download a decent ad blocker. My freaking 7 year old can figure out how to deal with the BS on this site – so can you.

    I vowed to donate when you stopped the automatic redirects that happened when you were reading the comments. Well the redirects stopped but I haven’t yet donated, what a dink eh? I will today as this is absolutely my favorite site to visit and WE CANNOT LET THE MAGGOTS WIN. Keep up the good work Turtleboy, we are lucky to have you. Your faithful readers appreciate the real news

      Reminds me of the days when a man took on adversary like getting hit in the face by a puck going 90 MPH.

      Shrug it off, take a few stitches to stop the bleeding, and get back in the game.

    Either Levine or McGaffy again.
    The book is based on his truth, so it’s clearly malicious.
