Polish Football Club Sells Antisemitic T-Shirts

The shirts are selling well, despite the fact that there is a law against incitement to racist crimes and despite the fact that the national football organization forbids fans from wearing such shirts.

there is a yiddishism called uber-chochma. uber chochma is when one reaches stupidity by trying to be more than smart- trying to be extra-smart. Extra-smart is stupid.
4 ways of responding to the above mishna.
1. I will defy the torah- I will chase after prominence, and control any and everything I can. I will assert my influence at every opportunity this is listening to atzas hayeitzer. These people are supported in their folly, and create their own downfall.
2. If I truly want to avoid prominence, I will chase after it, and thus it will flee from from me. This is called uber-chochma. Trying to outsmart the satan is rarely a fruitful endeavor.
3. Righteousness says I should run from from prominence, as that is what Hashem wants me to do. This is righteous, however it also allows for kavod to become a preoccupation, which doesn't help in the acquisition of wisdom.
4. Wisdom says, I should neither chase, nor flee from prominence, but accept it when it comes, and forget it when it passes.

Did you post in this thread by accident? It doesn't seem related to my post.
