We’ve talked before about how the protesters are nothing less than bullies who mock you and call you names if you have a different opinion from them about anything. Well, during the “Anti-repression protest” outside of City Hall on Tuesday, a woman went down with an “I Am Turtleboy” sign. It didn’t go very well for her and she wrote us an email to tell us about her experience. She is a “woman of color” as a Latina, and she wanted to tell the readers about her experience. Here it is:
First off i want to say that I believe in what I read from your blogs. I am one of your followers and just became a supporter. My husband put me on to you and since then we have tried to keep up with your posts. Everyday he asks me have you read turtleboy today? He usually beats me to it…I want to be heard as a concerned citizen and mother of a 10 year old daughter who has a disability and goes to school here in the Worcester public schools.
I’m actually reaching out to you to tell you what happened today to us (me and my husband) for being your supporters. We went down to city hall to experience what we were dealing with as concerned citizens. That was our first time attending a protest and we were hoping to spot one of your other supporters and show how we as individuals have the right to freedom of speech.
We knew though the heat we were going to get once we exposed that we are down with Turtleboy. We had a piece of paper that said “I am TurtleBoy!” We had it inside a folder only took it out for a picture. Oh man people kept pointing at us because we asked to have a picture taken to kinda let it be known we are out here and we are not ashamed to support someone we believe has the same views we do.
We have no clue who you guys are, but I know there are many who are against you. My heart was pounding because I knew someone was going to come ask us who we were. We gathered to hear Mike Jerry speak (btw he really doesn’t even have the desency to dress presentable, looking like a thug with grills on his teeth). There was a big crowd and bammmm I heard a man ask “do you know if Turtle boy is here?”
One quickly pointed at me and my husband and when the speeches were done Mike Jerry approached us and the first thing he asked was “you’re down with TB?” We looked at each other and said no, he chuckled and said “are you down with Turtleboy?”
So we went on to say we supported 96% of what we read. He asked if we think it was right for us as Latinos for you to have called the kids who got in a fight at North high “savages?” First of all that was not the subject of the event and we said it had nothing to do with you calling them “savages.” It was about handling things the right way and how there should be better structure in schools in Worcester.
He tried to ask us more and find out if we worked for you. Then some dude walked by us and pointed us out saying we were reporters working for you. Wow it was crazy.
We finished off by saying we had nothing else to say and he walked away. I want to continue being a supporter and I don’t give two shits about being out there to support what we believe in and who we believe as well. I really want your support and guide us to who we should stand with the next time we want to attend something like this. We felt like we were alone. I also wanted to ask if you would tell us how to better respond to these idiots when they come questioning us? Please help I truly love reading your articles and blogs and have become a fan. I want my story to be heard.
This just gave “I Am Turtleboy” so much more meaning. It also reaffirms what we’ve been saying about Turtleboy from the beginning. Turtleboy is not a person. Turtleboy is a state of mind. He represents truthfulness and honesty, whether or not you agree with him. When these two brave people took out there Turtleboy sign they became Turtleboy. That’s why all the hippies started calling them as such.
This whole obsession with who Turtleboy is never gets old to me. It’s literally the Salem Witch Trials all over again. The mainstream media and the PC police who have held us hostage for too long are shaking in their boots because their reign of idiocy is coming to an end. And there’s nothing they can do about it.
You know what the least surprising part about all this is? The fact that Michael Jerry made these people explain themselves. Because with these people you can’t just have an opinion they disagree with. Don’t have time to formulate a strong opinion, or do you find the whole topic uninteresting? Unacceptable. Now listen to me speak out of this cool megaphone. Then read my sign until you understand it. And make sure to join the Circlejerk on Facebook.
This is why they stopped traffic all over the country. Because otherwise we would just ignore them. They’ve been ignored their whole lives because 99% of the stuff that comes out of their mouths is poopy nonsense. So they’re sick of not getting your attention. But you have no choice but to listen to them if they’re standing in your way, or demanding you explain why you read Turtleboy Sports. They are the Jehovah’s Witnesses of the activist game. They will literally keep knocking on your door until you bring them in for coffee.
But we’re all pretty sick of Sonya Conner’s wacky jive, so we don’t wanna listen to them anymore. They do what anyone who can’t speak like a mature adult does – they called us racist. So you can imagine how perplexed Michael Jerry felt when he saw two people of color, who Turtleboy supposedly has a distaste for, supporting Turtleboy with a sign. They’ve tried to make this about Turtleboy hating high school kids. But yet we’ve got kids everywhere taking selfies with their “I Am Turtleboy” shirts.
Luckily the people are going to vote in November and show these people that the tides have turned. The Hilda Ramirez’, Tracy Novick’s, Rick Rushton’s, Sarai Rivera’s, and Joe Petty’s of the world are merely working in the final touches of their seat’s ass grooves at this point. Because someone else will be taking their place who will not tolerate the bullies any longer.
As for her question about how to handle yourself in a situation like this, I think they played it just right. They were able to express their opinions openly and still walked away with their dignity. They sent a strong message to these people that their attempts to divide us along racial lines cannot and will not work in the city of Worcester. Now, because of this story more people will feel emboldened to admit they read and agree with a lot of the things we write. And they’re not afraid to admit it because there’s nothing wrong with that. That’s why I love Worcester at heart.
