Since we publicized the names of four or five of the protesters who blockaded Kelley Square on MLK Jr. Day we haven’t heard much from the 10-15 usual suspects who organize these “protests.” They’re all receiving summons from the city. We won. Justice prevailed. But apparently they hippies are still finding insane things to bitch and whine about:
Worcester Magazine: The Worcester branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP)was supposed to hold a meeting Jan. 26, and a Worcester police sergeant was supposed to give a presentation about the exam applicants need to take to become a police officer. The meeting was postponed because of the blizzard, which gives the meeting’s detractors even more time to gather steam. The NAACP has received emails and Facebook messages bashing the decision to play host to a WPD officer until a public apology is made. A member of the Fire Department is also scheduled to speak, although fire departments have generally remained safe from the criticism leveled at the police by Black Lives Matter protesters in the wake of police incidents in Ferguson and New York. “I think it is problematic that the NAACP has chosen to invite the WPD into its meeting space, rather than demand a public apology like many others in the community have been requesting,” Keesha LaTulippe, one of the protesters who organized a response to the NAACP, said in an email. “Do we refuse to be at any table with them until there is a public apology? That doesn’t mean we don’t make demands, but we made demands through the city manager while boycotting any work ‘with’ the WPD until an apology or acknowledgement of their offense is made.”
The NAACP’s counterargument boils down to one simple point – their goal is “to increase the number of minority and woman candidates for the Worcester Police and Fire Departments.”
So let me get this straight. A major beef of the “Black Lives Matter” movement is that there aren’t enough black police officers. So the WPD and NAACP are collaborating to recruit more African-American cops, and my girl Keesha here thinks this is a bad idea? Yea, that makes TONS of sense.
LOL. Before any real progress is made we have to make sure Chief Gemme gets down on both knees and kisses the rings. Literally beg for forgiveness. Then, and only then can we start talking about their “demands.” Because if a bunch of hippies standing in Kelley Square for four minutes aren’t in a position to make demands, than I don’t know who is.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – this has never been about Michael Brown or Eric Garner, and it certainly has never been about changing anything. It’s about professional narcissists getting attention and keeping it. This is what they do. They’re nobodies who wanna be somebodies. That’s it. If it wasn’t true then they’d be embracing this. But they’re not. Because they’re frauds.
Anyway, we know what we’re dealing with here. Nothing new to see. But last week I got a comment from some guy who apparently fancies himself Worcester’s finest blogger. His name is Carlo Baldino, and he is a geriatric tub of spunk!!
Did this old guy just threaten me with Obamacare? Now I’ve seen it all. Look Mr. Wilson, Turtleboy doesn’t “attack” anyone. We report the news here. If you stand in the middle of traffic and the police ask citizens to name names, you best believe we’re naming names. It’s our civic duty. Plus, this is a “non-violent” movement right? So our writers shouldn’t have anything to be worried about.
So I did a little research on this genius and I found out he’s married to Joyce McNickels – the Worcester State professor who thinks the First Responders Support Rally is racist. Also turns out that in 1999 he got in some shit when he was a teacher at North High School because he wanted to show a Louis Farrakhan speech. He also said that “religious people should be studied by anthropologists in the same way they study primitive tribes and mountain gorillas.” Oh yea, and his wife Joyce isn’t the only person who thinks we’re kissing MLK Jr’s ass for being too peaceful. Turns out he was leading a movement to rename MLK Boulevard…..wait for it….wait for it…..”Rodney King Boulevard.”
Yup. This old man thinks he’s Worcester’s top blogger, and it’s absolutely adorable. Worcester Magazine opens up it’s voting for Best Blogger in a couple weeks. I never thought the contender to the throne would be a 75 year old white guy who thinks he’s Malcolm X. Bring it on Carlo. You come at the Turtleboy, you best not miss.
