Last week we published a blog about Rachel Corey, a black lives matter campaign organizer for Suffolk County District Attorney Rachael Rollins, after she posted a picture of a Boston cop’s home and encouraged a mob to show up there as part of the defund the police movement.
Today I received an email from Matthew Brelis, the Director of Communications for the Suffolk County DA’s office, which contained a letter that Rollins sent to Rachel Corey after reading the blog. It’s pretty awesome.DA Rollins Ltr to Ms. Corey (063020)
I’m a huge critic of Rachael Rollins and probably always will be, but credit where credit is due – this is a great move on her part and shows true leadership. She did not have to write this letter, and Brelis did not have to reach out to me and share it. But they did. And they made it clear to their own supporters that there is a line and Rachel Corey crossed that line. At a time when the police are under attack like never before, it was refreshing to see a DA who aligns herself with BLM to tell a BLM supporter to cut the shit.
More importantly it shows us that Turtleboy is relevant and important enough that it can catch the eye of the DA’s Office in a major American city (Boston). One could even say that Rachael Rollins is a turtle rider at this point. For all the butthuts who pretend that Turtleboy doesn’t matter, this clearly shows that we do. Turtleboy is relevant enough that it can force the DA to act, likely because turtle riders contacted her office, and the optics of what Rachel Corey was doing looked horrible.
As much as I despise Rachael Rollins’ politics, I do have a respect for her because she’s been on Tucker Carlson and Howie Carr many times. Cowards like Pocahontas refused to even participate in a debate that was hosted by Fox News. Rachael Rollins identifies who the opposition is and does battle with them. And I will always respect people who do that.
