Asshole comment of the day

From someone by the name of Mr. Cohen.

Over the past five years, Heshy Fried has attacked and ridiculed Baalei Teshuvah numerous times. He thinks that this is funny, but I am not laughing.

I wouldn’t be laughing either if I had something lodged that far up my ass.

FACT: One sincere Baal Teshuvah has greater value than 50 foul-mouthed Heshy Frieds, and will have greater reward in the afterlife [Olam HaBa] than 50 foul-mouthed Heshy Frieds.

You’re probably right, but 50 foul mouthed Heshy Fried’s are a lot funnier than one sincere BT. Although I’ve noticed that sincere BT’s can get to be pretty funny, because once they get to the point of sincerity they’ve dealt with so much bullshit that they can only laugh about the craziness. Hence the large audience of BT’s who read this site.

Heshy Fried laughs as he speaks nivul peh and ridicules Baalei Teshuvah, but he won’t be laughing in Olam HaBa when Baalei Teshuvah are on top, and he is stuck on the bottom with his filthy mouth – forever!

In all honesty, if I were gay, I’d probably be a top, but since I’m straight I;m not really sure what to make of your comment.

Heshy Fried does not deserve to be happily married; I wish him an unhappy marriage and a nasty divorce 🙂

That’s just fucked up man, I mean if you’re trying to give me mussar it would be better to give me mussar. But now I give to you the curse of the day from a facebook fan: The author of the comment should marry a total jappy Yenta who spends all his money and never shuts up, have too many kids to afford the yeshiva tuition on his meager koillell salary, and simply never have peace and quiet again.

Last but not least, Heshy Fried’s remarks on this web site could easily send him to Gehinom

I have a feeling that you’re negativity and hate is going to give you a heart attack and send you there first, but nivel peh’s a bitch so I could be wrong.

    Wow. Mr. Cohen has clearly reached a level of holiness that surpasses us all.

    Are you especially foul-mouthed? I hadden’t fuc&ing noticed.

  • s(b.)

    Too funny.

  • ellis

    Yep…. another BT. The interesting thing about BT’s is most are friendly and want to involve themselves with everyone around them. It’s interesting going out with a BT. However after this BT girl, (who’s only been religious for 16 months) thinks I as the FFB am bellow her because I go to yankees games really needs to take a step back and breath a little. Maybe a few drinks. Especially if her father is the biggest Gyno in the town.

  • ConservadoxBT

    This blog is great. Being a BT IS wonderfully ridiculous. All the things we get wrong, don’t know and all the anxiety and embarrassment need to be treated with humor or you’ll lose your mind. Frum Satire helped me laugh at it all PLUS it’s educational. I used to make lists of the Hebrew words I didn’t understand from commenters and look them up. I learned much. Heshy, I hope you have a long & happy marriage. Every time I flame-not or refrain from spastic shuckeling or resist the temptation to be an over-earnest fanatic, I thank you for Frum Satire.

    • Anonymous

      Well, ConsevdoxBT, you’ve managed to convey to Heshy that which I haven’t for so long. Once us BT’s are able to laugh at ourselves, we can relax from all of the anxiety’s that have plagued us from the inception of our return.

  • BT = British Telecom

    It’s strange, but Heshy Fried suddenly stopped being funny the moment he published this.

    Why did he need to take a sledge hammer to crack a peanut?

    • Obviously

      It’s a Dom thing. Heshy wants to make sure that hecklers know they are his btches. They will be punished, and there is no safe word. MuhHaHaHaaaa.

    • I love critics, but if you’re going to be an asshole you deserve to be treated like one. I do this ever so often, but rarely are they this bad. I mean to wish me a divorce is just uncalled for. I always take sledgehammers to crack peanuts – more fun that way.

      • Darth Zeidah

        “I love critics, but if you’re going to be an asshole you deserve to be treated like one.”

        I see; because someone has dared to say that the king has no clothes on he gets flamed.

        Really Heshy, you are behaving like a two-year old just because someone has had the temerity to tell you what he really thinks – instead of what you would like to read about yourself.

        • In the words of the great Harry S. Truman, “if you can’t stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen!”

        • CM in SF

          So you think it’s okay to curse a man’s marriage, huh? Wow, it turns out some readers are bigger asses than I thought.

    • A. Nuran

      Since the corksoaking motherplucker brought his wife into it.

      • Buck Rogers

        If you call that a sledge hammer, there’s something wrong with your Funk and Wagnalls.

    • And (3, 2, 1), it’s strange, but suddenly I just realized that BT=British Telecom is a douche!

      And to answer your question: to criticize Heshy for being a foul mouthed letz who mocks frumkeit is one thing. But once Mr. Cohen brought the family into it…that’s below the belt!

  • bratschegirl

    Actually, “top” and “bottom” have straight sxual connotations too. It’s a bdsm thing; refers to whether one enjoys being on the giving or receiving end of a flogging, for example. Tends to apply to folks who enjoy kink strictly in the bedroom, as opposed to those who consider themselves Dominant or submissive in additional facets of their lives/relationships.

      So I take it you are completely unrepentant for wishing someone a horrible marriage and nasty divorce?

      • Mr. Cohen

        I did not start this conflict.

        Heshy Fried started this conflict by spending five years ridiculing baalei teshuvah on a web site that reaches tens of thousands of people.

        When you repeatedly ridicule baalei teshuvah [like Heshy Fried does] you indirectly lower their chances of getting married.

        Since Heshy has made it harder for baalei teshuvah to get married by repeatedly ridiculing them, he deserves that his marriage chances should be ruined also 🙂

        • Obviously

          There you have it: Mr. Cohen is a BT who can’t get action with the ladies. Sxeual frustration has turned him into a comment troll that wishes to punish his virtual alleged perpetrator.

          Defenders do not see Heshy as ridiculing BTs, but as pointing out the challenges of being frum in a frumkeit system that is loosing moral ground and becoming a caricature of its worse behaviors.

          Fans see Heshy as giving then a voice of reason (and humor). Mr. Cohen (perhaps the same person as Nachum) sees him as pointing to his flaws. Halachically we follow the rov, and there are more fans than Mr Cohen.

          Mr. Cohen, you are the weakest link, goodbye.

    In all seriousness:

    1) Frum Satire is widely read in the family – frum and not as frum

    2) We think it’s fantastic

    3) Speaking truthfully (not the same as speaking truth, but honest speech) actually is “mekarev et ha-klal” (brings people closer to Judaism)

    4) Some of this site is off-putting but most of it is great

    5) May HaShem bless chosson and kallah for a long, happy and healthy life together and beautiful children and family. And have mercy and healing on the poor soul whose sickness causes them to curse. Null and void it from shamayim.

  • The guy is clearly sick, and has no life. Hesh, I think you’re site and commentary is great. His language exemplifies a major flaw in the chareidi community today- punish a minor infraction (a little too much elbow showing, an occasional four letter word) with a major penalty (cursing your marriage, threatening women with violence). This guy can quote scary passages all day, it doesn’t make him less of a freak and misanthrope, and it certainly doesn’t make him any frummer.

      I bet this guy wouldn’t mind if Heshy used racial/ethnic slurs instead.

And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy My brothers. And you will know My name is the Lord when I lay My vengeance upon thee. (now start shooting)

        Word. In his quiet way Heshy does incredibly effective kiruv to hard-to-reach Jews. He obviously loved God, Judaism and Jews and does it with his eyes open despite all their faults and weaknesses.

    • ConservadoxBT

      I have a picture of the four wheel angels tattooed on my shoulder and they’ve been silent all day. It might be because I study Torah with a woman Rabbinical student and am married to another man. There are so many types of Jews all seeking Hashem in so many different ways. Why not try loving us all and not cursing us. If G-d feels differently about our choices, that’s G-d’s business. Feel free to transfer your hatred to me from Heshy. I’ve been with my guy for 9 years, so your curses won’t be as inappropriate or hurtful.

  • stamaballebuste

    Mr Cohen, there are a number of issues I personally think you need to be made aware of: 1 If you object to what Heshy has to say for himself you have no obligation to read it! 2 I don’t have any fancy sources but it does say in Bereishis 12:3 when HKB’H is talking to Avraham He says “va’avorcho mevoruchecho umkalelcho o’oir…”” whoever blesses you shall be blessed and whoever curses you shall be cursed…” – I don’t wish anyone ill but please be aware what goes around comes around!
    3 It says in Pirkei Avos only rebuke someone who is going to change from it -the mere fact that Heshy has made a joke out of your mud slinging letter does say something! 4 Heshy does not mock Torah he mocks the crazy “chumros” that we put on ourselves as FFBs and BTs either by our own design or by people who feel that they need to control us!
    As we enter into the three weeks where we try to metaken for the sins of our forefathers that destroyed the Beis Hamikdash -Sinas Chinam let’s take the time to think before we write or speak will what I am about to say bring people closer or distance them…

    • Mr. Cohen

      I did not start this conflict.

      This conflict was started by Heshy Fried ridiculing baalei teshuvah numerous times over a five year period.

      If that isn’t Sinas Chinam, then what is?

  • com

    Come on, only 1 comment over the whole entire shabbos? You guys had a full 25 hours in which mr cohen was forced to be silent.

  • Nathan

    Heshy Fried mocks Baalei Teshuvah because he knows they are much better than him.

    He mocks them publicly, but privately in his heart, he wishes he could be half as good as them.

    • trust me I have no interest in drinking the koolaid, if it was such a big deal over half of my traffic wouldn’t be from BT’s, obviously something is amiss with your logic.

  • shoshana

    Mr Cohen I understand that you are upset. But being upset or even being right doesn’t give you the license to kill. Kill the spirit in this case which may be even more severe than killing one’s body.

    Yes, it’s true Torah forbids even occasional ‘f’ word. But cursing someone is much worse. ‘F’ word maybe a bad habit, a result of talking too much with people who overuse it. Cursing someone implies hatred and the wish to do him some harm. In this case very severe harm of having inferno instead of Shalom Bais.

    If you think that Heshy Fried is talking smut you should avoid this page at all costs. Some of his posts are interesting, some are boring, some are below my taste. But I think he has a beautiful wife and I wish them all the best.

    I think you need to study mussar how to properly deliver rebuke so it will not be a self-serving assault. In this particular case very immature and not well thought-out so rather shooting yourself in the leg.

    Bottom line: Instead of wasting your precious time on the Internet shouldn’t you rather learn some Torah?

    Although Heshy’s language has much to be desired, two wrongs definitely don’t make a right -there is no justification for cursing people EVER! P.S your sources don’t impress me I personally think you just ran a search with key words on some program – a true ben Torah wouldn’t waste his time trying to impress the masses throwing his name around connected with sources, he instead of sitting and surfing he would be learning or saying tehillim

      If there is no justification for cursing people, then why does the shmoneh esrei prayer include the Birkat HaMinim?

      And why did David HaMelech do it in Sefer Tehillim?

    riddle:
    What did Mrs. Heshy Fried say when she sobered up?

    I married WHO!?!?

      Nathan…. Why insult FFB’s? You as BT- did you enjoy all those years of eating Tyson chicken and pork? How does that feel?

  • Heshy Fried’s kiruv strategy of mocking the Rabbis of the Talmud and spewing dirty words and ridiculing baalei teshuvah IS VASTLY SUPERIOR to Mr. Cohen’s kiruv strategy of publicizing Torah quotes from Mussar, Midrash, Talmud, Rishonim and Halachah.

    It is also obvious that Heshy Fried has much more knowledge of Torah than Mr. Cohen.

    From now on, this web site should stop insulting balteschuvahs and instead insult Muslims.

    It was Muslims who destroyed the World Trade Center, not balteschuvahs.

    It was Muslims who murdered Israeli olympic atheletes, not balteschuvahs.

    It was Muslims who bombed Sbarros restaurant, not balteschuvahs.

    It was Muslims who shot thousands of rockets at Israel from Gaza, not balteschuvahs.

      Imagine if Jews had the dedication to their religion to be willing to do anything for they believe in. Let’s not make fun of them, but be inspired. Imagine if they thought that the most effective way to create the change they want to see in the world is to comment-spam bloggers (like Mr. Cohen does)?

    Breastlover Chossid must be another name for Heshy Fried because who else believes that filthy blasphemies are funny?
