  A Gorilla in our midst

So lately I have been going to Shul. That's right, going to Shul.

I have been going to a very interesting Chabad shul 2 blocks from my house. The shul regulars all appear to be Ballei Teshuvah, except for a couple of guys. So picture a bunch of Chassidishe guys with beards down to their stomachs wearing Gartels, but can barely read Hebrew! It seems very odd to me. Anyways, there is this big shmuck who sits in the back corner of the shul. He is the Shul heckler/candyman/head of Kiddush club. He looks vey much like a great ape although I'm not sure if he looks more like a gorilla or a Baboon. This guy talks throughout davening, making jokes at other members expense INCLUDING THE RABBI! The Rabbi will stop davening constantly for this SOB and he will continue to talk! I have learned to except this pathetic loser and move on. I wont get into the disaster that is this guys business and personal life because that is just not cool.
This morning at Shacharit, I was putting on my Tefillin along with a few other guys and the Rabbi who I have really come to love lately. His speeches are great, and he has a certain unique presence about him that I am drawn to......Back to the story.....So people were discussing the elections (all overwhelmingly supporting Bush) and someone brought up Obama, and the great ape said something to the effect of....."Owe who cares about that coon, I wouldn't vote for a Nigger" and the Rabbi smiled.

Now I am not sure if the Rabbi smiled because he knows what a pathetic lost cause that motherfucker is, or if he thought that what he said was funny. All I know is, I woke up early in the morning to pray to G-d. I came to Shul to Pray with a Minyan. As far as I am concerned, I don't think talking about the election in the sanctuary is appropriate at all but I was so shocked and offended by the whole scene. I am disappointed with the Rabbi and if I continue to Daven at this Shul long term, I guarantee a confrontation with this shitbag.

I assume they tolerate him because he is a large donor. There can't possibly be another explanation. I don't know if I can possibly continue at that Shul. I guess we'll see how it all plays out.

Needless to say, I was not in the right mindset for Davening. I was enraged. I wanted to drag that stupid hypocritical ass minstrel outside by his big ears and slam his head into the pavement. Is that so wrong?

Unfortunately, racism is widely encouraged in the Orthodox (particularly chassidish) community. You have to have the guts to tell them it's not funny or appropriate. It's even worse when there are kids around. You have to teach them that even though because the guy saying it looks like a rabbi, it's still wrong.

I wouldn't go so far as to say racism is encouraged amongst Orthodox Jews. Tolerated, perhaps, but there is a strong difference between the two.

Why is it racist if I don't like certain people for legitimate reasons? It's my G-d given right to dislike people without nutball LIEberals telling me i'm evil for it! I think politically correct idiots are racist.

And its my G-d given right to physically remove any motherfucker who disturbs my time with G-d, with immature,ignorent, and hateful comments.

If you want to hate black people for being black then thats your problem, but in shul I better not here about it. Not to mention that those two particular African-American candidates are fucking geniuses.
