So we didn’t send anyone down to the Department of Justice meeting on racism in social media at Worcester Tech because this was the agenda:
This is the part we objected to: “It is also described as a system of oppression based on the socially constructed concept of race exercised by the dominant racial group (whites) over non-dominant racial groups. “
The City of Worcester let it be known before the meeting even began, that the working definition of racism for the “conversation” would be white people exercising racism against people of color. They CLEARLY outlined that white people cannot be the victims of racism, despite the fact that Wanda Alvarez-Eaton, one of the leaders of this movement, said that she “hates white people” on her Facebook the other day:
“HE SAID IM RACIST..I AGREE..I HAVE ISSUES WITH WHITE PPL AND HAVE TROUBLE TRUSTING THEM.”
You may also recall, that she may or may not be hiding Asian girls in her basement:
You can’t have a fair conversation if the rules for that conversation are unfair. Of course racism can go both ways. Anyone who thinks it’s not possible for you to be immune from being a racist because of the color of your skin is literally the biggest moron who ever lived. Ever. There’s no other way around it. And the City of Worcester is apparently run by gigantic morons, because they subscribe to this hilarious idiocy.
Anyway, things got real interesting when Lindsay Corcoran from Masslive.com tweeted that this was being handed out (by Gordon Davis, who of course was there with his world famous sign):
Now, it’s important to point out that this was not issued by the city of Worcester. However, they did NOTHING to get rid of it. They made no statement in regards to this particular handout and did nothing to get rid of them. Yet they had no problem asking the police to stay out of the public safety meeting two weeks ago. This is the level of insanity that has taken over the city of Worcester.
As you can see in that handout, they make the usual claims as to the sole identity of the person they believe is the “real Turtleboy.” They claim he uses the Facebook name Clarence Woods Emerson, which is weird, because that’s the Facebook name that I use. They also say that I’m Henry Hague, and we’ll see later on that several other of you were accused of being Turtleboy tonight.
Anyway, everything on there we’ve seen before. “The vast majority of his most vocal supporters are white men and women from Worcester and surrounding towns.” First of all, so what? We’re color blind. The only color we see is page views.
Secondly, that’s just not true. Why yesterday our African-American blogger J-Dubs (who many hippies believe is a made up person), published a blog regarding his view of the confederate flag. Are you a person of color reading this right now? Well guess what – you’re wrong!! Did you know that you are more than likely suffering from Rachel Dolezal syndrome? Better get that diagnosed.
Another criticism he wrote was, “He often deletes comments on his blog posts that are contrary to his own opinions.” Weird, because if you’re reading this right now, there’s a very, very good chance that you are blocked from posting on the anonymously run “Communities United Collective” page.
Then there was “he fronts as a sports & entertainment blogger but his stories have focused on waging attacks on local residents, especially civil rights educators/activists, minors as young as 9, and women, including his former student.”
OK, where do we start with this one? How bout the fact that we haven’t fronted as a sports blog for years now. Secondly, we don’t “front” as an entertainment blog – we ARE an entertainment blog. We know this because the Circlejerk can’t stop clicking on them. Are they not entertained? And as for the nine year old we “attacked” please, provide us with documentation of said nine year old. Oh yea, that’s right – that never happened.
My favorite criticism by far was “He tries to garner additional support by promoting charity each week but only as a means to promote himself.” Wait……what???!!! Now you people have a problem with the charity work we do? You think this is some sort of front to get you to not notice all the racism? So you have a problem with us helping people in need now? Apparently we can’t do anything right!!
But I would like to point out something about the Circlejerk, and Joyce McNickles, and Old Balls, and Gordon Davis and the rest. Not once have I ever seen them try to promote a charity or do something good to better the lives of people around them. Not once. They’re very good at calling people racist, shutting down city streets, defaming police officers and teachers, and collecting taxpayer money under the false pretenses of being a “non-profit.” But as for ACTUALLY helping people in the community, they come up short time and time again.”
Blah, blah, blah. More of the same from the Circlejerk. They’re scared and frightened. But as you know, they’ve gone after Aidan in particular pretty hard. His name was on this sheet tonight. So we spoke with him after he saw that sheet of paper and offered a solution to help clear his name.
Basically what we did was write a 50 word blog about that handout, but we held off on publishing it until just the right time. Then we contacted Lindsay Corcoran from Masslive.com on Twitter, and let her know that Aidan would be down there looking for her. When Aidan got down to Worcester Tech and was about to meet with Lindsay he texted me personally. He started doing an interview with Lindsay, and during that time we published the blog at exactly 7:17. Aidan will clue you in on what happened during the conversation, but he didn’t leave there until 8:00 because he was accosted by a gang of rabid hippies. Here’s some time stamped comments from that blog:
7:20. Aidan was speaking with Lindsay Corcoran and Steven Foskett from the Telegram and Gazette at that time. Obviously this proves that he did not publish the blog. Now you may be saying, “Yea but he could’ve set it all up.” While this is true, the mere fact that someone else not only has access to the administrator role on the dashboard to be able to publish a blog, but also has control of the Turtleboy Twitter account, which was directly communicating with Lindsay Corcoran DURING her interview with Aidan, proves that multiple people have the ability to publish blogs on here. Thus it cannot possibly be the work of a lone blogger.
So what went down there with Aidan tonight. We decided to speak with him for an exclusive TBS interview. Here is the transcript:
TB: What did you and Lindsay talk about?
AK: I explained to her what I’ve explained previously. Several of my friends write blogs for TBS. After I was libeled by Buffalobruises I saw an opportunity to leave teaching when they offered to pay the rest of my year’s salary in exchange for going away quietly.
I also saw that TBS had built up such a large audience so it would be fun to see if we could turn TBS into a business, instead of just a hobby. So I started a marketing company called “Turtleboy Digital Marketing LLC” (registered with the Sec. of State), and took TBS on as my first client. They’re not my only client, as I’m pretty good with SEO and basic webpage design, and have been hired by other companies as a consultant.
I figured, why not create a marketing alternative to the Telegram and Gazette? One of the problems was that Turtleboy was too much of a jerk. My job is to calm Turtleboy down when he gets out of line, make sure Turtleboy is giving back to the community, and promote Turtleboy on the radio and social media. You’ll notice in the past six months, Turtleboy has calmed down a little bit. Sometimes you guys go a little too far and it’s my job to let you know when your actions could keep away a potential client.
TB: I don’t know what you’re talking about. We never get out of line. Anyway, did you come in contact with any of the hippies?
AK: While I was speaking with Lindsay, a man came over and introduced himself as the son of Wanda Alvarez-Eaton. I told him the truth, which he seemed surprised by because he was under the impression that I am Turtleboy. He also stated that Turtleboy and Masslive were some sort of partners, which Lindsay was very quick to make clear was not the case.
Shortly afterwards I heard a child who could not be older than 8 mocking me. He kept saying “Turtleboy” repeatedly in my direction. I soon noticed that he was being urged on by Wanda Alvarez-Eaton. She soon came over and I offered to shake my hand. Since then I’ve been informed that she said I shake like a girl on her Facebook timeline.
TB: Did she harass you at all, or did she wanna hear you out?
AK: I couldn’t get a word in. She literally stood there and berated me in my face while calling me Turtleboy. I tried explaining I run a marketing company, but she wanted no part of that. She has convinced herself and there is no changing her mind. That’s when she started talking about my Mom.
TB: Yo Momma?
AK: Yea, she said she was going to “get her politically.” I am not sure what she means by that exactly. I tried being cordial and respectful towards her, but it was a one way street in that regard. She She kept on talking whenever I tried to speak and kept taking pictures of me, and posing for pictures as well by handing off her iPhone to the people she was with.
TB: Wait a minute. She qualifies for public housing and she owns an iPhone? Sounds like America’s a really shittt place to live.
AK: I’ll let you be the judge on that. She also accused me of being several Facebook names, including Owen Murphy, Bret Killoran, Chris Van Vilet, Taylor James Muhammad, and Paula Florentino. There were a few more but those are the ones I remember. She was really mad at me for being Paula Florentino, I’m not sure why but she kept saying something about her. I guess in Wanda’s mind Turtleboy Sports is a blog run by me where I make hundreds of fake Facebook names that then comment on the blogs that I supposedly write. She must think I never sleep.
TB: WTF??!! I guess everyone’s Turtleboy now. Anyone else talk to you?
AK: Steve Foskett from the Telegram came over. I like Steve’s writing and I’ve been friends with his sister since high school, so I was more than willing to speak with him. Honestly, I don’t even remember what I was saying to him because by then a small crowd was starting to form and Wanda and Marianna Islam were shouting “This is Turtleboy!!!”
TB: Yea she’s probably pissed that we exposed her for manipulating kids into calling their teachers racist. Sucks when you’re a fraud and your cover is blown up like that.
AK: She didn’t seem that bad. At least she listened to me. We talked and I explained the whole story once again. It was clear she didn’t believe me, but at least she listened. However, she was with a white guy, who was probably around 40 years old, who kept telling me what a terrible person I was for writing all these racist things. I have no idea who he was. I introduced myself and said that I am Aidan Kearney and I asked for his name (like you would normally do when introducing yourself) and put my hand out. He refused to shake my hand and refused to tell me his name. I found his to be ironic because he is apparently a person who is angered by the anonymity of Turtleboy, yet he was saying terrible things to me under the veil of anonymity.
One of his biggest complaints that he kept reiterating was that I harass children, print addresses of my former students, and take down comments on the blog. He was really upset about the fact that comments are supposedly taken down by you people.
TB: Hold on….take down comments on the blog? LOL. I think we’ve figured out who “Turtleboy Spurts” is. He’s this guy who probably gives us more page views than the rest of you combined. The irony of him complaining while simultaneously giving us exactly what we want (page views) is fantastic!! Anyway, he is ALWAYS leaving comments about imaginary comments we never took down, just like this mystery white guy did tonight:
Yea, we definitely don’t have time to monitor the comments all day. If we see something terribly inappropriate we will try to do something about it. But we get hundreds of comments a day, and ain’t nobody got time for that. Certainly we wouldn’t waste our time taking down this fan boy’s comments. Anyway, you can use a fake email when you comment on our blogs, but apparently fanboy here doesn’t realize that and he uses his real email address:
We can also see your IP address when you post too FYI. Here’s his.
I have no idea where that is but it’s probably pretty easy to figure out. Either way, we don’t really give a shit as long as he keeps clicking on the blogs. Aidan was too nice to this guy. I don’t know how he resisted the urge to call this guy the big fat naniburger that he was.
TB: Anything else?
AK: Yea him and Marianna kept demanding that I give them names of the bloggers. I told them no obviously. What’s the point? They’re going to focus their hatred and venom on me regardless. What’s the purpose of bringing other people into this too? Either way, I’m not afraid to say that I read and like Turtleboy. I wouldn’t be friends with you goons if I didn’t see eye to eye with you. So I view an attack on Turtleboy as an attack on free speech. Why are these people so threatened by a blog? Why don’t they just stop reading it if it angers them so much? What is Turtleboy doing besides exercising free speech? If it was THAT outlandish, then people wouldn’t read it. But apparently people like it for a reason.
Marianna kept telling me that even if I wasn’t the author of these blogs, that I was responsible for selling adspace on there. I told her that this is how I make money to support my family. I guess they’d rather see me become destitute rather than have to read a Turtleboy blog.
They also asked me why I don’t tell people my side of the story. It’s like, what do you want me to do? I don’t write a blog that gets 20,000 page views the day. I don’t have the ability to get my message out there. I could write something on my personal Facebook page, but then only my friends would see it, and they already know the truth.
TB: Was Old Balls there?
AK: I have no idea. It all happened so fast. When Marianna and the mystery man were speaking with me I saw so many familiar faces. Joyce was part of the mob that was basically surrounding me. There were some teenage girls that I recognized from the video in front of City Hall the other day taunting me and taking pictures as well. I was just trying to have a civil conversation with them, but they wanted no part of that.
TB: What’d you expect? These people are terrorists. This is what they do. Their way or the highway, haven’t you figured that out yet?
AK: I only know what I read about them. But one person who really surprised me was City Council candidate Bill Coleman.
TB: Bill “at least I didn’t get last place” Coleman? He was giving you shit too?
AK: He had a Hawaiian shirt on and he kept walking closer and closer to me mocking me and calling me “Turtleboy.” Then he started making fun of my mother, which I thought was in poor taste. I guess I expected a low level of discourse from teenagers and Wanda Alavarez-Eaton. But Bill Coleman is a mainstay in Worcester politics. I’ve voted for this guy before just because I respect his never give up spirit. I was really surprised and disappointed that a guy who wants to serve the city of Worcester on the city council would degrade a Worcester taxpayer and join a mob in the manner that he did.
TB: So how did this shitshow end?
AK: Basically it got to the point where I no longer felt safe. There were at least 20 people who were moving in on me, taunting me, and calling me names. I can take it, but I didn’t know all these people and quite frankly I don’t know what they’re capable of. Luckily there was one guy there who kind of jumped in and protected me in a sense.
TB: Who? Joe Petty?
AK: LOL, no. It was a guy I had never met before named Mesfin Beshir. He was a really cool dude. He introduced himself to me as an Ethopian immigrant. As someone who has lived in a third world country he believed that Joyce McNickles and others were out of line (he was a little more colorful than that with his language). He said that these are the same people who have been collecting free things from the government, and then turn around and blame the government and everyone else for being racist. A lot of people view immigrants as some sort of invading army. Not me though. Almost every immigrant I’ve ever met in this city has been like Mesfin. They know what real struggles are and they’re grateful to be in a country that gives them opportunities that don’t exist in most other countries. Turns out he’s run for City Council before and he passes along the word that he’s a big fan of Turtleboy Sports. I would definitely vote for that guy.
TB: Speaking of voting, have you people had enough of this shit yet? Joe Petty and Ed Augustus have their dirty fingerprints all over this. This whole DOJ shitshow is a mockery, and they signed off on it. The City Council hired Augustus without doing a national search for a City Manager. They just handed him the reigns because he’s one of the good ol’ boys and he knows how to continue politics as usual.
Since then they’ve given into every demand of Joyce McNickles and crew – no cops in the schools (we changed that at least), no cameras in school linked up to the police station, no metal detectors, DOJ coming to Worcester, investigation of Turtleboy Sports for racism, rehiring Lisa Dyer and Melinda Boone while “reassigning” Janice Harvey, no arrests when they blockaded Lincoln Square, clemency for the Kelley Square 4 if they agreed not to break the laws again, the hiring of a six figure “Chief Diversity Officer,” Jen Roy…The list goes on and on.
The bottom line is, we don’t just need people to get mad and write on Facebook. We need an ACTUAL revolution. And that takes place in November at the polls. We’re going to be interviewing candidates shortly to see what their deal is, but you know who we’re behind 100% so far:
Mike Gaffney for Mayor and City Council.
Konnie Lukes for City Council.
Donna Colorio, Cotey Collins, Brian O’Connell, and Diana Biancheria for School Committee.
If we elect these people and a couple others that want to take back our great city from these LUNATICS, then Worcester has the potential to be a great mid-sized American city.
Vote the Turtleboy Ticket in November.
