Haredim, Block Voting and Homosexual Marriage

A Republican US Congesswoman fights against gay marriage, in large part because her constituency is made up in a significant part by a contingent of hasidic Jews who stronly oppose gay marriage. A wealthy gay constituent tries to get her to change her mind, but she won’t, fearing the wrath of the hasidim, who vote in blocks. So the gay man gives $500,000 to her Democrat opponent through a PAC that relentlessly advertises against her and smears her. The Democrat wins the election. The hasidim? At last minute, they switch sides and vote in a block for the Democrat, because their rebbe believes the group will, by putting the Democrat in office, gain greater pull in a newly-changing Washington.

The hasidim? New Square, whose Rebbe stands accused of covering for an aide who allegedly has raped young boys. The Satmar of Kiryas Yoel.

    These fine folks are now going to go nuts because the governor elect in NY plans to ban metzizah b’peh. I no longer want to be known as frum. How do I change my MO to MO?

    Can’t you write responsibly? The story was with Kiryas Joel which is Satmar not Square.

    True Shmaryah should be more accurate but the scandals and chilul Hashem of both Skwer and KJ are pretty bad. Is there a connection between the above metzitzah bpeh and homosexuality? Just kidding. When the goyim see how sick Monroe is and what stupid games they play will any of us be safe? Read the recordonline.com article about what one of our brethern was presumably about to do to another. Hijack or firebomb a truck presumably.

    I’m the guy that sent the article. It did specify Kiryas Yoel (but you’re forgiven!).
    I mentioned New Square because this incident brought to mind the time New Square traded their votes to Hillary so Bill would pardon their jailed rabbis.
    You write “…because their rebbe believes the group will, by putting the Democrat in office, gain greater pull …”. Did someone say that or is that your opinion? It could be the case, or perhaps some of that $500,000 was “donated” to the right cause.

  6. It’s in another article on the issue.

    And the public expresses its opinion of such vote herding here.

    Some Chasidim traded their votes for more political influence. Seems to me that the UFT, among other unions, and all sorts of groups, do this all the time.

    thescandal of it all!!!
