Would just like to remind you toi and everyone else, right now we are holding by clarifying the difference between mimutza hamafsik vs mimutza hamechaber. Which spells out why asking Moshe rabbeinu for things in the midbar was fine whereas doing the same with the eigel was avoda zara.
However toi has reminded me of another story / that of korach. You see when someone has proven himself to be a messenger of Hashem, and one, even someone great, like korach was, impudently fights against and denigrates him, he is really fighting against Hashem, as Moshe and Aharon made made abundantly clear, and Hashem did with their punishment.
Again, these remarks were made before the Rebbe became Rebbe and he said that they don’t need to be accepted by those who don’t get the hergesh.
Half a year later the Rebbe was chosen and accepted to become Rebbe. And through his life definitely proved whose messenger he is. He was consulted and visited by numerous Gedolei Yisrael just offhand by the chacham Eliyahu, Rabbi Soliveitchik, the Gerrer Rebbe and many more. He never went on vacation all the years, barely ate or slept and worked around the clock for klal Yisrael.
He managed to inspire regular people to devote their whole lives on shlichus and greatly expanded that system which has far reaching effects till today.
So after all that to come and publicly mock and disparage the Rebbe, I hope for your own sake you do teshuva as you’re really playing with fire as korach did.
