DovBear: Spot On Kolko, Abuse And Gedolim

DovBear writes:

Rabbi Wachsman screams and sputters about this because he knows the next stupid remarks reproduced on a blog for the amusment of the masses might be one of his own. That’s what worries him. Not child molesters. Again, order, not justice.

I suppose it doesn’t need to be said, that if Wachsman and his cronies had their way we’d have no Jewish blogosphere, no blogs like UOJ, and Kolko would still be riding high.

That, finally, is why the Jewish blogosphere matters, why we who count ourselves among this community must redouble our efforts. Not just for the sake of the children Kolko destroyed, but for the sake of all the Jewish men and women who die small deaths everyday because of acts of cruelty, stupidity, selfishness and injustice perpetrated by Jews. Let me close with a quote from Martin Luthor King which explains the value of blogging. He was speaking about non-violent protest, but I’ve brought his thought up-to-date, and I think this must be the answer to every well-meaning fool like LakewoodYid, and also to the less well-intentioned creeps who complain about bloggers and tear their shirts over loshan hara and issues of disrespect:

“Actually, we who [blog] are not the creators of tension. We merely bring to the surface the hidden tension that is already alive. We bring it out in the open, where it can be seen and dealt with. Like a boil that can never be cured so long as it is covered up but must be opened with its ugliness to the natural medicines of air and light, injustice must be exposed, with all the tension its exposure creates, to the light of human conscience and the air of national opinion before it can be cured.”

Spot on.

  1. Our newest gadol in training is Ephraim Wachsman of monsey
    A tireless self promoter, he married the daughter of the richest jew in England and flew in half the world for his chaasunah at a 5 star engish hotel. He now screams against fancy weddings. In yeshivah he was considered quite pedestrian in learning. He does have one great talent. He speaks in ear splitting shreiks and screams at a remarkable decibel level with sweat spattering off him with his energetic gesticulations. This remarkable talent has made him the speaker or screamer du jour and has made him a “gadol”
    Isnt this absurd?
    Its about time we seperated our after dinner speach gedolim from the real thing

  2. what an awful person - only a sick person can make a page like this

    you are a sick person…worse than any of the ppl u mention on ur page.
    for the hate and lashon hara u spread on these pages god will punish u bad one day

    rabbi wachsman is a tzadik and rabbi kolko is a good person who is under a venomous attack in which he cant stop…people like listening to garbage and lashon hara and u r feeding it.
    in the worst case rabbi kolko is guilty of the alleged claims hes is going straight to gan eden as he has had hell on earth being embarrassed by mamazerim who hide behind a blog…either way kolko wins…hes headed ad meyim vesrim to gan eden…
