BT’s vs. FFB’s

You know you haven’t been online much when you get sent one of your own videos and can’t figure out when or where you filmed the thing. I should also mention that my lisp is quite funny in the video, it comes out in rants when I tend to drool a bit.

    It seems that Heshy Fried has not learned his lesson and he probably never will.

    He fails to understand that some people are ANGERED by his frequent ridicule of Baalei Teshuvah, or maybe he does understand, but he just does not care 🙁

    Either way, his frequent ridicule of BTs over the past five years has transformed me into a permanent enemy of Heshy Fried. I will NEVER forgive him, especially because he speaks to large audience.

    I wish on Heshy Fried that very soon he will become sick and disabled with some devastating and incurable disease; and after he dies, he should burn in Hell, both him and his shiksa wife.

    Heshy Fried and his fans think that he is very smart, but if Heshy were REALLY smart, he would find ways to be funny that DO NOT include: ridicule of Baalei Teshuvah, nivul peh, Lashon HaRa or Chillul HaShem.

    Heshy Fried and his fans think that he is very smart, but if Heshy were REALLY smart, he would find ways to be funny that DO NOT create enemies!

    Last but not least, I have spoken with authentic sincere giyorets, and I have enough experience to say that no true giyoret would even consent to a date with someone like Heshy Fried, how much more so actually marry someone like him.

    In fact, no true giyoret would consent to even breathe the same air as someone like Heshy Fried who publicly says things like: Judaism makes no sense.

    Since no true giyoret would marry someone like Heshy Fried (or even breathe the same air as him), I must conclude that his wife is NOT a true giyoret, and is therefore *** NOT JEWISH ***. Since Heshy Frieds wife is *** NOT JEWISH ***, all children born to her are also NOT JEWISH!!!

    Normally I do not attack my fellow Jews on the internet, but Heshy Fried attacked me first, and many times too. Heshy Fried, I hope you get infected with the AIDS virus and die from it!!

      Holy fuck. U r sick. Seriously. U shud be on medication.

      You’re mechilah means nothing, considering the fact you have violated multiple issurim with this post, halachically you killed me, so I guess the jokes on you.

      • Truth Man November 29, 2012, 4:23 PM

        I did NOT ask mechilah from you, and I never will,
        because I am the victim, and you are the person who attacked me.

        You complain about “multiple issurim,” but this entire web site is little more than “multiple issurim!”

        You complain about being “halachically killed,” but this web site (which you own and manage) routinely violates Halachah more times than I can count.

        As I enter this web site, the first thing I see is a picture which demonstrates your belief that Chillul HaShem is FUNNY.

      You make me wish I was born to Jewish parents if only because I could then tell you as a BT that, to quote Basil Fawlty, “you [obviously] have no sense of humour, do you know that?!”

      I’m a ger and find Heshy funny, and find no reason to think BT’s wouldn’t, unless they too are humourless throwbacks. Had I met only humourless throwbacks, I probably wouldn’t have been attracted to Judaism.

      “Burn in hell”? Seriously, grow up and get a life, this isn’t the Dark Ages.

    Take your hatred somewhere else “Truth Man.”

    Well, the good news is that most people don’t die from getting AIDS anymore.

    The truth, man, is that your NUTS!

    When you ridicule Baal Teshuvahs, you are also ridiculing the Torah they returned to and the G-d they returned to.

    • Heshy Fried November 28, 2012, 9:25 PM

      Ridiculing and poking fun and laughing together are two different things.

  • leah November 28, 2012, 9:53 AM

    Heshy, you sound a bit like Wallace Shawn in this video (a la Princess Bride)… “As I told you, it would be absolutely, totally, and in all other ways inconceivable!”

    Who get gelillah during Neilah? No laining then….

    Truth Man, I think you missed the point of the rant. Correct me if I’m wrong, Heshy, but that sounded like it was far less about making fun of FFBs and far more about making fun of the FFB attitude towards BTs. Also, as has already been pointed out, it was meant to be FUNNY.

    I have to say that I don’t personally see this attitude towards BTs at all. I’m FFB, and I guess I’m somewhere right of modern orthodox but left of “yeshivish”. I’ve lived in several communities in North America, and I currently live in Israel, and rarely if ever have I heard anyone say or imply anything along the lines of “they’re never going to be one of us.” If anything, it seems that BTs tend to think more about what they’re doing when they observe mitzvot or learn Torah and ask more insightful and probing questions.
    (In that vein- at one point I mixed up the schedule for the local pool and went there during non-separate hours. when I asked a few secular people at the entrance what the schedule was, they started asking me things like, “Why do you need to be so extremist? It’s a pity to be so fanatical…” When I started defending my position, one of them says, “Are you a Baal Teshuva?” even when I denied it, she kept on insisting, “No, I think you must be a Baal Teshuva.”)

    As an aside, I’m going with a BT right now, and yes, she is absolutely on a higher madrega than I ever will be.
