Hello Turtle Riders. As you know if you follow Turtleboy we are constantly getting 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.

For the inquiring minds out there, although I’ve put the brakes on blogging about it, I still really, really hate Mike “kids for cash” Cadena with a burning passion rivaled by few other ratchets and scumlords out there on the internet. It just became redundant to publish, because he is never going to stop doing horrifically morally reprehensible things to his young son and estranged ex girlfriend until the courts and authorities intervene and stop him from doing so. Second to my hatred of Mike Cadena, though, would be Diane Benjamin, the “editor” and sole contributor to BLNNews.com, some of the worst “reporting” available online.
Her blog is filled with some of the most insane, mundane, factually inaccurate bullshit that I have ever attempted to sift my way through. It makes Infowars look like The Wall Street Journal. And her feet are the stuff of nightmares.
Brilliant. Truly deserving of the chosen tagline – “News nobody reports.” Diane is definitely a nobody.
Not to mention she has threatened to sue Turtle Riders in a spectacular show of ignorance to how any of this works,
and is just in general, as Greg Bates would say, “obtuse”. That being said, it was still kind of a bummer when I logged on to Facebook and put “BLN news” in the search bar to do my weekly “fuck with Diane Benjamin” routine only to find….it was gone! So I fucked with Vanilla Lice on the Hub a little instead, and then got to thinking, what is this nonsense? It’s just not the same. I require a well balanced diet in my trolling.
I wanted to gloat initially, because it makes total sense why her toxic bullshit would end up pulled. Her coverage of the Michael Cadena case has been patently biased, factually inaccurate, and libelous. She’s blatantly lied in print, and doesn’t seem to understand how confidentially laws work, at all. But Facebook notoriously makes no sense when pulling pages, and who am I to decide what is worthy of the interwebs, and what is not? I honestly and admittedly don’t have that right. That’s not what we stand for.
What a fucking moron. BLN News/Diane Benjamin is low hanging fruit. This is the sort of stuff that cracks open the door. Take down the easy ones, and watch as it escalates and we all fall down like dominoes. Here at Turtleboy we are champions of free speech. Censorship is the enemy, and Facebook is the face of that enemy. We’ve been taken down by Facebook countless times for numerous reasons, ranging from innocuous content to content that even I can concede could be seen as objectionable. But we have the right to exist, and so does Diane Benjamin. I don’t support what she does, because it is insane hot garbage, but I stand for her right to exist online. It would be hypocritical of me not to, and I would be really shooting my own foot in terms of content for this blog, because we serve a purpose that serves free speech in the broader sense. It is not the job of silicon valley to police content or fact check and verify – that’s the job of the public consuming the content. And for those too busy, too careless or to stupid to do it for themselves, Turtleboy exists. Diane and so many other like her, serve as the mechanism that keeps us rolling. Thank you, Diane. We couldn’t exist in all of our truth, justice and common sense glory without a stream of bullshit to debunk. And with bullshit like BLN News, the public needs us. It’s the circle of life. I’m sure the page was taken down because she has been gleefully participating in a libelous smear campaign for quite some time now, as one Cadena’s only “media” allies – but a lawsuit and order to take that particular garbage down would have sufficed. Those are the dice you roll when you report irresponsibly from a platform of apparent mental illness. Doesn’t mean you need to be taken out completely like an ex KGB on a British holiday. I can’t say otherwise and rightly refer to myself as a proponent of free speech. I can’t fight for my rights to use words like “cunthair” online and then call for the destruction of regurgitated Alex Jones-esq shit, no matter how much of a stain I feel it may be. You have the right to be a shitstain, Diane. I support you.
So sorry, Diane, although I know I said this on your new and follower-less page:
I do genuinely support your right to write and publish your sad, paranoid hot garbage. I still think you suck, and I mean that – you suck. But I believe in your right to suck as hard and often as you like.
Side note – while searching for BLN News’ Facebook page I found a parody page dedicated to mocking Diane, Unofficial: Blnnews. There is no recent content and only a handful of followers (more than BLN’s new page will most likely get in a week, though), but I thoroughly enjoyed their content, and definitely gave them a “like”. I would like to sincerely thank Diane for this as well, because without her screaming lunacy, these incredible posts would not be possible:
There’s also a chance that this isn’t an issue of censorship at all, and Diane just pulled up a switchup to hide from my incessant trolling – because I am pretty much the only activity that pathetic little page has ever gotten. In that case, good luck Diane. My love is like the rain – you can run for cover, but you can’t stop it pouring. And I will flood your page with sweet little nothings – because that’s free speech, baby. You have your right to your opinion, and I have the right to mine.
