So yesterday morning, on Pearl Harbor Day, city of Worcester leaders got together and had a press conference to…..denounce Islamophobia. Because why wouldn’t they choose Pearl Harbor Day to denounce Islamophobia? Unlike when 9 innocent black people were killed by white terrorist Dylan Roof in Charleston, SC, and the City Manager’s Coalition Against Bias and Hate issued a proclamation condemning the attacks at a vigil, there was no vigil this time around. This whole thing was just a reminder that despite the fact that the two terrorists in San Bernadino happened to be radical Islamic terrorists, we still should be nice to everyone.
At least that’s what they said it was supposed to be about.
In reality, there were about four or five people who attended, all of whom were from the press.

Worcester Magazine’s got a picture in this link. It’s 15 people in suits standing in front of a bunch of empty chairs, pretending like this is some very important press conference. But the main reason they put this together wasn’t to denounce Islamophobia. It was to denounce Turtleboy:
Here’s the link he’s referring to. Let me start by saying that it is HILARIOUS that Joe Petty finally admits that he reads Turtleboy every day when he wakes up and doesn’t go to work. He’s just not very good at reading comprehension though. Because as you can see, we CLEARLY pointed out in the article, that our beef rested with the fact that the mosque defended the murderers in Paris who killed several people because they drew a cartoon making fun of Mohammad:
We stipulated that fact several times, including in the conclusion:
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again – the problem isn’t Islam. The problem is that people like Tahir Ali use their positions of leadership to blame the victims instead of the terrorists. I don’t care how liberal you are, it is simply INDEFENSIBLE to say that someone doesn’t have the right to draw a cartoon because it might “provoke” someone into murdering them. This turdlinger went out of this way to blame Charlie Hebdo, the magazine that published the cartoon, for not engaging in “responsible journalism.”
A man representing the Worcester Islamic Center named Steven Ives had this to say:
No you don’t condemn terrorism. That is a lie. One of your leaders clearly condemned the act that “provoked” the terrorism. He’s the one who should’ve been up there condemning his own hate speech.
Mr. Ives also went on to say that many members of the Islamic Center have had things thrown through their windows, been assaulted, and even had people try to run them over with their cars. Conveniently none of these incidents have been reported to the police and there is no record of them ever happening. But they definitely happened though. Just ask the students at the University of Missouri – every anecdote of racial violence is always 100% accurate.
Anyway, like we said, this was nothing more than yet another meeting the city put together to try to stick it to Turtleboy. This whole thing was about a blog. Here’s the statement released yesterday by the City Manager’s Coalition Against Bias and Hate:
The City Manager’s Community Coalition Against Bias and Hate Crimes (Coalition) offers its condolences to the victims and survivors of the recent attacks in San Bernardino, Paris and Beirut. Acts of terrorism like these are only made worse when used to justify racial, ethnic and religious profiling. The Coalition condemns all forms of racism, including Islamophobia. We cannot allow the exploitation of recent events in order to foment hate through rhetoric or institutionalize racism through public policy.
They spent one sentence on the victims, and then the rest was spent on imaginary victims in Worcester. Turtleboy agrees that we shouldn’t treat Muslims like hostile citizens. They’re regular people too for the most part. But where were they last week when everyone and their mother was generalizing pro-life people as terrorists? This was the official statement released by Planned Parenthood after the attack:
“We share the concerns of many Americans that extremists are creating a poisonous environment that feeds domestic terrorism in this country.”
So it’s OK to generalize everyone who shares a certain ideology, so long as those people aren’t Muslim. Got it. You condemn that one Jumpin Joe? No? Didn’t think so.
This was the part of the coalition’s press release that we thought was most hilarious:
As representatives of local government, faith organizations, social service agencies, law enforcement, education and advocacy institutions we are taking and will commit to take appropriate measures to protect our peaceful religious community against hateful and discriminatory speech or actions against any one of us. We must stand together for a world that fosters peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.
Just to be clear, the “hateful and discriminatory speech” they are referring to, is Turtleboy Sports. Because the truth is hateful in 2015. But here’s my question – what are these “appropriate measures” going to be? Do you numbnuts not understand how the First Amendment works? You’re allowed to say what you want, so long as it doesn’t directly libel anyone else. Are you honestly that stupid to think that you can stop “hateful and discriminatory speech?” Do you honestly not understand that you can’t do ANYTHING to stop that? Turtleboy dislikes hate speech as much as the next guy, but it’s a side effect that comes from living in a free society.
Anyway Joe and Eddie, I know you’re reading this because you just gave away the fact that you read it every day. I DARE you to try to stop us from writing the truth. DOUBLE DARE YOU!!! What are you gonna do? Oh yea, nothing. Because at the end of the day all you people do is yap, and yap, and yap, and nothing meaningful ever comes out. That’s why people read Turtleboy Sports – because they know where to find hot takes, facts, and undeniable truth.
