"Judas Goat"

A portrait of "Red", a Judas Goat who leads sheep into the slaughter house.

The heartless one will sell his own brothers and sisters down the river for a few scraps of food.

Wiki: A Judas goat is a trained goat used at a slaughterhouse and in general animal herding. The Judas goat is trained to associate with sheep or cattle, leading them to a specific destination. In stockyards, a Judas goat will lead sheep to slaughter, while its own life is spared. Judas goats are also used to lead other animals to specific pens and on to trucks.

I was thinking yesterday (Not that this is unusual activity for me) that maybe this was a message to me, the fact that in my searches for the blog I came across this traitor of an animal. Maybe, in some strange way, it was referring to me, that I lead other Jews to the spiritual shechitah by running this blog and rallying against certain members of the Rabbinical establishment. That for the little bit of enjoyment that I get from seeing action on the blog I sell my soul to the "devil" and herd all those fine, innocent little "ציגעלעך" to the point of no return. The problem is that nobody would work that hard and do such evil just for the few comments I get. Plus, the nasty emails and ad-hominem attacks I get are enough to make a grown man cry, so that pretty much debunks that theory. Which is why we're trying hard to make this thing work financially; that way we can exchange a guilty conscience for some cold, hard cash, like so many of us do, just in a slightly different different way.

Tzig, don't second-guess yourself.

There is no pleasant way to lance boils and to not expect blood and pus, but it's for the best because by getting out the bad stuff it stops festering and the body can start to heal. You are a boil-lancer on this blog.

When a doctor does surgery he has to cut, sometimes deeply, and there is blood and pain, but it's all for the best because the patient gets cured that way. You are a doctor doing surgery when you put pen to cyber-paper as you do on this blog

It's far better to face up to faults than to hide them in the attic where they grow into dangerous demons and it's far better that the "boils" and "demons" be EXORCISED on this bloog than to pretend they don't exist. You slay the demons on this blog.

Good blogging should be like good therapy, it should confront real issues and not hide them as in the mainstream media, and in that way truth and reality are better served when the failings and foibles of even the greatest men and women are laid out in the open rather than feeding people lies and mistruths. You do good therapy for the klal on this blog.

You help people face up to truths that they may not like so they attack you rather than deal with the issues you bring up on your blog. You make people face lots of truths they would rather ignore on this blog.

In many ways, I think you maye have become like the late Rabbi Meir Kahane, another journalist who was despised by the Jewish establishment bacuse as he said: "I say/write what you think!" And indeed, you say many of the things that people only dare to think.

So do what you have to do and see where it takes you, and if people won't like it, they will let you know.

Keep up all your good work!

I see that your nasty attack via the blog on a certain magazine paid you dividends, getting you a לא יחרץ' געלט' gig.Typical שייגעץ שטיק "כאבאד."

Dear R’ Hirshel Shlita

I would love to read a long post by you, regarding the abrupt about-face by the Hamodia Nation where the Internet was once Treif Chazer, and to which in an editorial was once written 3-4 years ago (when I did bring the paper into my house) that it should not be used. But we have a special heter - they say - simply to serve Klal Yisroel. We scan the WEB for useful news and info. We, of course, sanitize the news and are Bodek it for bugs, and verem to bring you, our faithful uneducated BP/Flatbush/Lakewood ferd, all the news that fits our agenda.

Why has the Tzig not spoken about this?! Are you losing your touch????

Dear M,

Maybe you'd also like to know what the Tzig thinks about the craziness going on, now and in the past in Lubavitch??

The only problem is that The Tzig = The craziness.I.e he and most of his fellow Lubab are the PROBLEM. Same thing regarding the Hamodia. He is the same narrow minded fellow who would read and consider the Hamodia anymore than it really is a newspaper for young yeshivakids and ignorant chasidim.

He sees no problem with Hamodia
He sees no problem with Lubavitch.
He only sees how terrible everyone else is. While being a member of a certified cult.

Whatever.I found it funny that this pey tzadek was complaining to you of all guys about the Hamodia. Hamodia, is a nice newspaper for people who don't think too much.

Btw, you wrote: "I was thinking yesterday (Not that this is unusual activity for me)" .I just found it funny that you seek to make sure we don't misunderstand you and think that it's unusual for you to think. Seriously, if you are involved with the mad cow Lubab crowd you are not thinking to much.They are a cult. Nobody questions the craziest stuff they preach. Including the assertion that you yourself claimed not long ago "Only the Rebbe is perfect"
The Rebbe may have been an influential figure, but sorry, very far from perfect. That's ok, because only Hashem is perfect.A classic syndrome of cults is to claim the leader is "perfect". I don't even get this crazy need of a "perfect" leader. Why are people trying to attain the unattainable? What's wrong with a person who tries his utmost and is a great person? Can't he be looked up to as a leader?
