One thing I have zero tolerance for are people who harass our advertisers. If you don’t like what you read on Turtleboy then go read the Huffington Post. We’re not everyone’s cup of tea, but what with freedom and all you’re more than welcome to leave an exit speech on Facebook and get the fuck out. What’s not acceptable is emailing or calling our advertisers and telling them that they should stop advertising with us because you don’t like the things that we say. Like this email sent from Brendan Rickert of Milford to one of our sponsors:
“Are you aware of your advertisements on a website ‘tbdailynews.com.'”
Yea, I think they’re pretty well aware ass munch.
“TB Daily News is not a news site.”
Gotta love how Captain Snopes over here has arbitrarily appointed himself the arbiter of what is and isn’t news. If he doesn’t like it, it’s not news I guess. I laughed out loud when I read that part because he’s thinking that our advertisers were somehow duped by the word “News” in TB Daily News. Luckily free speech Freddy is here to let them know what’s up.
“It’s a hateful forum that personally attacks people and allows for comments that encourage rape, violence, and hateful speech.”
Nah. It’s a love-filled forum that sticks up for victims and exposes the people who are hurting them. For the most part I hardly ever read the comments anyway, but it’s obviously stupid to suggest that we’re somehow responsible for mean things trolls post in there.
“I hope you strong(ly) consider pulling your advertisement from the hateful website.”
See that’s the shit I have no tolerance for. You wanna whine to our advertisers that the blog hurt your stupid feelings, whatever. You wanna start telling private business owners what you think they should “strongly consider” because your beef curtain flaps are caught in your fly? Then you’re intentionally attacking my livelihood, trying to take food out of my crotch fruit’s mouth, and you end up on Turtleboy.
Brendan is the former (or maybe current) coach of the Fairfield Men’s Cross Country team.
And he’s now running for a spot on the Milford School Committee.
If you hate free speech and support Fascism, then Brendan here is your guy. If you like those things then vote for anyone but him.
It should be noted that he wrote this email on the same day we published this blog about the cheating Milford widow who drove her firefighter husband to suicide by fucking a Milford cop and a Milford firefighter. White knight much bro? She’s not gonna bang you dude. And you’re probably better off in the long run.
He appears to work for Motorika, so perhaps he doesn’t understand what it’s like to own a business. Maybe someday he’ll understand that underhanded attacks on free speech aren’t cool, and people could do the same to him or his wife if they wanted to.

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.
