Hello Turtle Riders. As you know if you follow Turtleboy we are constantly getting censored and banned by Facebook for what are clearly not violations of their terms of service. Twitter has done the same, and trolls mass reported our blog to Google AdSense thousands of times, leading to demonitization. We can get by and survive, but we could really use your help. Please consider donating by hitting the PayPal button above if you’d like support free speech and what we do in the face of Silicon Valley censorship. Or just buy our award winning book about the dangers of censorship and rise of Turtleboy:
Yesterday we published this blog about a mob of woke white people from Hingham that was attacking and trying to financially damage a well respected fruit market after a woman shared an unconfirmed, third hand anecdote about being called a racial slur and working in a place that tolerates sexual harassment of employees.
(see entire thread in blog linked above)
It’s important to publish blogs like this, because since the inception of Turtleboy Sports we have always been the defender of small businesses who get unfairly attacked by Internet mobs. Did it happen? Probably not. For one, it makes no sense to call this girl the n word since she’s not African-American. Secondly, it’s hard to imagine that a place that has been lauded for their treatment of employees would have a manager who thinks nothing of using racial slurs to describe employees in front of other employees. Thirdly, they have great reviews from former employees on Indeed, and credible sources like Iraq war veterans have nothing but good things to say about their time working there.
The accuser also dates the second hand source who told her he heard the racial slur,
and recently started a GoFundMe for tuition to an unnamed college, which hasn’t gotten any donations.
Now she’s the town darling, and people are much more likely to consider donating to the cause.
Well, Ms. GoFruitCenter apparently loves the attention until she doesn’t. And predictably she did what many ratchets before her have done when becoming Turtleboy famous – victimize themselves. Of course we did nothing to victimize her, because all we did was call out her tactics of smearing a small business while concealing the alleged proof because of “legal” reasons. So she whined and attempted to tie us to the “death threats.” We get death threats on a regular basis at Turtleboy Sports. If they sound serious we just call the police and document it. To this day no one has ever followed through on a threat, because words on a computer screen are just words on a computer screen. And whining about it on Facebook doesn’t make you a victim of anything.
It started when the high school kid who said he didn’t want us covering this story posted a threat he received.
“Anyone else who has an opinion has opened up to harassment like this.”
People who say stuff like this are just trying to stop people from voicing opinions they don’t agree with by blaming them for threatening messages received. Newsflash – the only person responsible for threatening messages are the people who send them. That’s it. Beware of anyone who tries to silence someone else’s speech on the basis that their speech could provoke violence. All this is is an end-around to censorship.
It goes without saying that we are anti-death threat. Always have been. If you read our blogs and choose to send threats then you’re not one of us. We actually hate you, and would prefer if you didn’t read our blogs. But it’s a free country so we can’t stop you. All we can do is control our speech, stick to the facts, and call out bad people doing bad things.
Tricia got one from Matt Sloane too.
Again, if you’re worried that this individual will hurt you, you should probably call the police, because they likely committed a crime by doing this. This is between you and them. Blogs do not make people commit crimes. We won’t stop exposing people doing bad things because people might send death threats as a result. That’s not how freedom works. I can’t even find Matt Sloane’s Facebook page when I search for it so I have no idea who he is, or if that’s a real name. If it’s his real name then he’s just another stupid criminal.
But wait, it gets better. Evidently we’re racist for assuming that Tricia Sanchez-Martinez is Latina.
You’re probably right Sonya. Here I was thinking that someone with not one, but TWO of the most Hispanic last names that have ever existed, were in fact Hispanic. Turns out I’m just a big ol’ racist! Little did I know she was actually from Andorra. Or it could be her step-parent’s last name, and she just happens to have a very similar skin complexion to many people who come from Latin American countries.
Yea, who CHOOSES to associate a last name to a race of people? When I hear the name Declan O’Sullivan the first thing I think is “he might be from Monaco.” Or when I met Carlo Digiovanni I definitely considered the fact that he might be from a remote village in Mongolia. I’m just open minded and tolerant like that.
Then again, we’re dealing with a woman who drags people out into the woods and makes people take pictures of her in order to try to get people to hire her for whatever hippie bullshit she’s peddling.
Plus, she’s gotta be telling the truth because, “what does she have to gain?”
Gee whiz, that’s a tough one.
Although the sweetest victory was probably getting revenge on the boss who didn’t give her a big enough raise despite her completely lack of marketable skills.
These people were NOT happy that people of their ilk were called out on Turtleboy, and quickly pointed out that Turtleboy is NOT a trusted news source.
Right. We’re the only ones who try to monetize our websites. The mainstream media is devoid of advertisements and click baiting headlines.
Remember Botox Bonnie?
According to her she caught us telling lies.
Hey Botox Bonnie, here’s a lie – your claim that the Attorney General’s office is investigating a Facebook post.
As for the “Turtleboy isn’t real news” nonsense – it appears as if the “real news” disagrees with us, since they use us as a source quite frequently. Ya know, places like NBC:
The Boston Globe, which credited us with taking down and exposing massive corruption in the State Police.
Then there was the Boston Herald.
And the Washington Post, which said the following:
The story on the editing of the police report first surfaced in October in a local blog, Turtleboy Sports, which said it had heard from several state troopers who expressed “outrage.” Other local media picked up the story soon after.
So it appears as if “other local media picked up the story soon AFTER” we did, because we reported the story FIRST.
Nevertheless the people who choose to believe shitposting on social media were not impressed.
Hey Alex, how bout I print a copy of our blogs, add a Sodoku, fold it up, charge you $2.50, and then send it to you? Because that’s the difference between a newspaper and a blog. And newspapers likely will not exist in print 20 years from now because no one reads print newspapers except for the old guys at the deli.
Our work is done here.
