    Common I have a similar story: my wife was in the grocery store and she was wearing a mask, while my three year old was not. This was a little after the merciful overlords told lifted the ban. A purple haired troll of a woman yelled at my wife and daughter telling my terrified daughter her mother was a bad person while filming them both telling them it was going on YouTube.

    My wife tried to remain calm but eventually went for the jugular and told the nut job that just because no one didn’t want to have children with her doesn’t mean she has the right to raise other peoples children.

    My daughter is still weary of masked people now, I think that will serve her well in life.

    “It can be avoided if you live in a very sheltered and restrictive life in KJ or New Square which isn’t the practical really for most people and don’t have any business activity beyond that”

    And this method only biding time before legislation is passed to infiltrate yeshivos to teach our children the goyish “mitzvah” of toivah.

    Emes, like I said lone wolf terrorist attacks are a threat from the right, I don’t think we will see it systemized at a government level unless the economy takes a steep dive or we go through some sort of existential crisis.

    The left is far more dangerous in the fact they control the mainstream narrative and will have the ability to pass sweeping legislation in the near future if trends continue.

    The rural uneducated votes will wane as secular education continues to indoctrinate young minds to join the cause. All serious high level secular acedemia is consolidating further left by the day, all of this will have a serious effect on future voting demographics.

    I think it’s time to admit conservatives have lost the game, and this last election was proof. Attaining the house will further the problem as republicans will continuously be blamed for holding up any progress. Even though Biden has been a lackluster president much fewer people than predicted cared to send a message.

    I also find it funny that people like to be patriotic for mother 🇺🇦 here in America what the same folks hate their own country for being too nationalist.

    All this American self hatred is sublimated into Ukrainian nationalism, a country which has historically hated Jews.

    Please know if you have own Ukrainian flag in America you are a very useful idiot.

    Let the Russian nazis go to war against the Ukrainian nazis at let the two countries wipe each other off the map without American involvement.

    The global political hegemony supporting the Ukrainians has interest in undermining Russian culture. I couldn’t care less about Russian culture but a can respect them fighting against the liberal secularism that seeks to destroy Russia. As things progress politically in this country we will be faced with the same challenges as liberal secularism will fight to close our schools, sue us for not letting women lead services in our shuls, let our children be multilated for the sake of whims or confusion. I know people will call me crazy for holding this opinion, Russia vs Ukraine is a war of culture, not morality and we will have our turn in the near future if this continue they way they are. Secular liberalism has an objective truth that they are determined to impose at all costs, Russia is a test run for bigger things.

    I find the whole movement very sad. I wish they could have chosen to appropriate Vietnamese culture instead, or even make the intellectual effort rediscover their own roots. I guess it’s easier to read certain parts of the Christian bible and yell at everyone though.

    Everytime I hear about landslides or colored waves usually nothing surprising happens. I believe we have two extremely vocal minorities on either side of the aisle that think saying a wipe out is going to happen politically is some sort of social engineering tactic to garner results.

    It’s honestly getting boring to listen to all of these adult children cry and point fingers at each other, and you never can seem to find truth in any of it.

    I’m predicting mild shifts to the right, maybe a couple minor blowouts but on a macro level nothing significant, just like last time a red wave was predicted.

    I’m I wrong to really not care if these two nations of edom tear themselves apart. Like Russia’s chief Rabbi said, leave. Both Russia and Ukraine have terrible past with the Jews that lived there. Babi Yar is a testament to Ukrainian sentiments towards Jews and it doesn’t help that statues of Khmelnytsky Yimach Shmo still standing.

    Why should the people of Texas be held responsible for the mess the federal government has created? Are they responsible because of mere proximity to the border?

    If anything this was the kind thing to do, as the locations they are being sent to cities where the leadership has proclaimed they care about these people the most, now everyone is discovering that is mere rhetoric, much like your feeble response.

    Would there be this much commotion if there was a pro Avoda Zara club, or a pro Frankist/Sabbatean club? This club is no different in my eyes. LGBTQ+ is a evangelical and corrupting movement.

    in reply to: Can we have an adult conversation about education? #2124308
    Lostspark
    Participant

    I wonder if there is a long game strategy to undermine the yeshivos that lay hidden behind the idea of compulsory education.

    A yeshiva with a staff for secular studies is twice the budget, or the MO dayschool model.

    MO folks have to get very involved jobs and commonly both spouses have to work to be able to pay for these schools. Typically these neighborhoods are very pricey too so professional status precedes everything in life.

    Sadly MO is emphasizing Derech Eretz a lot more than Torah, for the sake of necessity at this point. I’m watching it happen to a Shul nearby where every young family is working themselves into the ground trying to make ends meet and always looking to move somewhere less expensive. Look a Boston, it’s MO community is shelled out because of this very problem. Multiple MO Shula there only have lingering aging communities left because the younger crowd left, became more frum or fried out.

    Mandatory secular studies being foisted upon all yeshivos would create this same problem for the chassidishe crowd, if they complied at all. I really wonder if that is the long game in these efforts.

    “ Some would argue drug addicts too have a right to education.
    Moreover the reason WHY they are drop outs and nebachs, is because the system failed them, which is by design.”

    I guess YVN should make a counter article where they visit a federal prison and interview felons who attended public schools. Obviously it’s the schools fault they are socially compromised and we should call this burden to the taxpayers out.

    My secular neighbor sends her two daughters to public school. She gave my wife and I a long talk about how the yeshiva system is failing so many boys, and how they would have no opportunities for parnassa. Many off hand comments about how we were disadvantaging our boys.

    Years later her eldest daughter (12) is dressing like a boy and lecturing her family about gender ideology and oppression of these new neo“minorities”.

    She expressed to my wife how distraught she was and explained how pervasive this narrative is in what used to be a very esteemed public school.

    All I could do is smile.

    It is announced Moshiach is to arrive in a months time.

    Confident in this prediction the Litvish community heads to the beis midrash in order to formulate an extravagant pilpul in honor of the Moshiach.

    ChaBaD hears the news and immediately brings out all the mashke and begin to farbreng.

    A month passes and indeed Moshiach arrives.

    He arrives at the Litvish Beis Midrash and they deliver their lofty pilpul.

    “That’s it? is there anymore?” He asks

    Dismayed they reply “If only you arrived later we would have more for you”

    Moshiach then heads to 770,

    The farbrengen had carried on for a whole month,
    The jubilant Chassidus greet the Moshiach and he asks for a L’Chaim,

    All the Chassidim look at each other in shock and a tell Moshiach “If you arrived sooner we would have had some mashke left”

    Avram MD,

    I wonder what Russia did to have such a zechus to not have McDonalds, CNN, Facebook, etc no longer foisted upon their population.

    Sometimes I think EY could use these corporate entities cutting them off so they could see the left is no friend of the Jew any longer. I’m no fan of the new emerging volkish right, but the pendulum of power has swung way to far to the left. I’m afraid if this continues America’s soul searching will send us careening in the opposite direction which is just as terrible if not worse.

    The two poles right now are Volkish right and Boleshivik left. Appealing to either side of this will have consequences that are not good.
