If I had a nickel for every time the Internet PC police, a) called Turtleboy Sports racist, or b) threatened an imaginary lawsuit against Turtleboy Sports, I’d be the 1%. I would literally own all of you fuckers. Unfortunately we don’t get paid when people do that, but we do get a good chuckle out of it. I saw a few hilarious comments this past week on a couple blogs we wrote. The first was from today’s article about the MASSIVE amount of donations that Worcester protesters raised to bail Ferguson rioters and looters out of jail:
Fuck you ‘turtleboy’ and your unfounded, self-righteous bullshit. You tear down innocent people for the simple pleasure of being a 12 year old child. Get a fucking life. You obviously have too much time on your hands.
I know <redacted>, he’s a nice guys, and 100 times the man you’ll ever be. What you’re doing here is defamation, and it’s unjust.
You want to build a better community, then stop raping it’s members for your own benefit.
Defamation. So hot right now. I love when graduates from Internet Law School lecture me about defamation when I post things I came across on Facebook. Because as you know, Facebook is your fucking diary. Everything people post on there is only for their eyes to see. Anyone else who looks at it is defaming them. It’s UNJUST because a protester said so!! Hey here’s a thought – if you want to lead a completely private life, then don’t willingly post your real name on the second most trafficked website in the world. Especially when you’re raising money for bail money for criminals who just burned and looted a community.
I will give the hippie credit for this – no one has accused me of raping the community before. That’s definitely a first. Because everyone knows that satirically talking about geniuses who raised $350 for criminals is basically the SAME EXACT THING as raping all members of a community.
Then there was this one that came from the article we published about the gang members who stabbed each other at a Worcester strip club and refused to cooperate with the police. I was pretty convinced everyone would agree that refusing to cooperate with the police and continuing the “stop snitching” hoodrat protocol is not a good thing. Apparently though this was racist:
Another ignorant take on a much more intricate problem facing the city. Stupidity masked by a folksy common sense is still stupid. Basically you’re saying let the brown people kill each-other because their not worth it. Your south high comments pretty much cement that theme.
Rule #1 of the protester with nothing productive to say – just call the other person a racist. Bonus points if you call them brown. Sure race was never once mentioned in the article. Yes, Worcester has plenty of white idiots who are in gangs. But if you say that we should let gangsters kill each other who refuse to cooperate with the police and contribute to a lawless society, then apparently you are a racist. Makes sense.
LOL. The funny part is that there is just no possible way whoever wrote this is from Worcester. There is a 99.9% chance they’re a white dude from the burbs. In all the movies they’ve seen the gangsters are always brown. But there’s NOTHING racist about him assuming that only brown people can be in gangs. Nothing racist about that at all.
For the record, the South High comment he’s referring to is this one:
“Sorry, but I’m not paying $10 for a watered down rum and coke to watch some 2011 South graduate from Canterbury Street parade her stretch marks in front of me.”
Newsflash – I’m white and graduated from South High. So are tons of people I know, including a couple other Turtleboy writers. Fucking weird right? I know that in the minds of the suburban race police like this commenter South High is filled with a bunch of black and Puerto Rican gang members, but there’s a lot of honkies too. Sprinkle in some Asians and Indians and you get a slice of Americana and internationalism when you enter the doors.
I valued my South High experience because it exposed me to a diversity of cultures and races at a young age. The suburban white race police hasn’t had this experience, but they HAVE read about racial issues before on Twitter, which logically makes them an expert on race relations. So while I’m able to interact with people of any color and be myself while doing so, people like the commenter are constantly trying to prove to “brown” people that they’re one of the “good ones.”
When someone pointed out that there are white gangs in Worcester the genius had this to say:
Yeah the polish and Swedish gangs are out of control. Whatever you have to tell yourself to defend this Bobo.
LOL. Now I KNOW this idiot went to Oakmont or Algonquin, or some place where Polish gangs don’t exist. You know who I feared more than ANYONE at South? The Polish mafia. Those guys all looked like they were 24 and had awesome cars with rims. And they all got hot chicks too. Fucking with them was a bad idea.
Oh yea, one of the other white gangs you didn’t wanna fuck with was GTB. I’m 99% that stood for Grand Theft Boys, but everyone called them “Get the bikes.” Nevertheless, those guys ran Canterbury Street like you read about. Nobody fucked with them. I don’t know if they still exist, but I’m willing to bet there is some sort of equivalent gang that has taken their place if they don’t.
Oh yea, and what about the mafia? I’m pretty sure those guys are whiter than Bromfield High School. Here’s what the commenter had to say:
The mafia is considered “organized crime”. The only gangsters or “gangstas” that I know of are latin kings, ms13, bloods, crips, triads etc. The Article is very careful to not specify the race or ethnicity of the parties in question by design I might add. But make no mistake who it is referring too. It’s cowardly and insulting.
LOL, the Triads. So this guy’s knowledge of gang activity in Worcester includes anecdotal evidence about gangs he heard about in a Tupac song and Rush Hour 2.
He is right though. The article was very careful not to mention race or ethnicity, largely because race and ethnicity had NOTHING to do with it. As a matter of fact the police didn’t release the names of the stabbing “victims” and neither did we. But when you’re part of the race baiting PC crowd it is your patriotic duty to police the internet and infer about the motivations of Turtleboy writers.
Keep up the good work protesters!!
