Rabbi Lipschutz is not stupid. He must know that his paper is available to all people, not only to those ultra Orthodox Jews who may be like minded. It takes someone indoctrinated to always think the worst of non Jews no matter how much evidence there is to the contrary – to say what he said – and believe he has served the Jewish people well by saying it.
Why do I care what the Yated says? A paper that even many Charedim think is a piece of garbage?! The answer is that he has made his feelings public. Feelings that demonstrate a near state of delusion about the American people… all based on a headline in a sensationalist newspaper.
Rabbi Lipschutz has now given the American people another reason to hate and fear us by his paranoid attack against fellow Americans. He needs to be called out publicly for doing it. I wish I could just ignore him. But as long as his words appear online, my words about him will too – in strong protest against them. His views are a complete distortion of the truth. And truth is something I champion around here.
