Wow this guy is generalizing, but I happen to agree with the points.

No. Friend sent me an email.

I realized that. Should I not have posted just in case someone will think its mine?

Added to my RSS feed in case he posts again. I wonder why he needs to be anonymous. I can get why an undercover OTD person wants to conceal his or her identity, but this guy is on the path of righteousness, what's he got to hide?

Well, that was fast. It's down now. And just when I was going to write a post on my blog answering his.

A glimpse at the great “success” stories of the OTD failures…

B”H

Let me get right to the point… I am neither a seasoned columnist/journalist, nor am I a writer or news anchor; I am simply a bystander watching the self destruction of the many haredi teens and young men. I intend not to be a leech and schnor from others to support my blog. I do not live in my mother’s basement… I am employed full time and earn a solid honest living. I pay my fair share of taxes too. I do intend to tear down the bitter OTD community who are at constant war with haredi society whom they hold responsible for THEIR failures.

Let it be said; I attended the same educational institutions they have, yet I succeeded in honing my personality to be someone unique. The only one to blame for one’s failures is the failure himself. Their constant kvetching and moaning about their difficult pasts and the pseudo abuse and torture they endured, shows great weakness in character; real men focus on the future. I won’t withold the fact of my hardships as a teenager and even later… Yet I managed to forge ahead and evolved into someone I am proud to be without resorting to trashing my entire community whom I truly believe is to be credited for who I am today and my successful career.

On the flip side, I see all too many OTD individuals who cut their noses to spite their ugly faces by running from it all and blaming everyone but themselves for turning into complete disasters. Of the many OTDs I met in my lifetime, I say confidently that most have below average IQ, are simpletons or outright stupid. Those who are somewhat intelligent have a warped way of processing information and lack simple deciphering skills needed to grok and process everyday events. They do everything to burn all bridges with their loved ones and past acquaintances and then complain about how bad everyone is to them…

Yes, I have an axe to grind with an old miserable grouch who setup a blog to besmirch in a blanket fashion the entire haredi society as a result of the late Lubavitcher Rebbe Z”L’s unwillingness to accept his beloved Falashmonkeys as jews (racist? me? absolutely!) He never misses a beat when it comes to uncovering “earth shattering” bits of news on haredi individuals. He relishes in smut and should be considered rather a tabloid writer than a legit upstanding journalist. The climax is always reached in stories pertaining to abuse of minors (something’s odd about this guy…) Oh, how he pats himself on his fat belly when he releases large quantities of venom in his reports of such. I acknowledge that it exists and truly detest the way things are handled unprofessionally. However, like most stable people I am not here to fix the entire universe’s problems and don’t attempt to be the world’s guardian. Agreed, we have our flaws and possibly need to address them, but please, fret on them all day? He laments the fact that we don’t generate enough revenue for the great country hosting us. I ask, what does HE contribute to society besides the lurid stench and loud noise resulting from natural gasses emanating from his do-nothing (unless cut, copy and paste is journalism) ya-know-what. While he should be the epitome of failure, he somehow turned out to be a hero and is celebrated by a circle of losers, his ilk; a bunch of angry deranged atheists or simple lehachisniks. You guessed right; I am referring to the infamous Scotty/Shmarya.

There are more losers like him who have yet to make it to the ‘big leagues’ and ‘hall of fame’…

Let’s take a closer look at what’s happening right under our noses… A typical dysfunctional heimishe teenager decides one morning that it is too difficult to function as a haredi jew due to the limitations on sex activity/partners haredi society conforms to, so he/she quietly leaves his/her parents’ home to an unknown future in the hopes of bettering his/her life. OMG! look at all the bliss the secular world has to offer; WOW! All the glamor of the ‘real world’ outside of Jewland… Pshhhhhh, the sky’s the limit!

One problem: C-O-N-S-C-I-E-N-C-E… Oh wait, no problem! I just go ahead and start finding fault in my parents, mechanchim and the entire community thus ridding me of any guilt that may have accumulated the past few days. Heck, let me publish a book… Let me tell the world my sob story; let me convince the whole world how bad things ‘really’ are in the community that raised and nurtured me until the most recent past. Some go on to brag about an education they are pursuing which will eventually lead them to great success… Oh yes, there is even a great support group waiting with outstreched arms to accept and cuddle them.

Fast forward several years: stewing over the past and unable to focus on any future, the poor imbecile is struggling to survive. He/she is too drugged up to be allowed in the family’s home and has never succeeded in keeping a job, so he/she has no means to provide for him/herself. And education? What’s that? A viscious cycle then sets into motion and goes on and on until the person ends up being incarcerated, in an insane asylum or OD; Heaven forbid.

The cries of our wonderful ‘friends’ that we lack individuality and adhere strictly to the word of our leaders and the dire NEED to encourage individualism is merely a smoke screen and a desperate attempt to introduce us to a wanton lifestyle. It is the first english word these bums are taught and then dream all night (and the following day) of ”yeah… individuality… hmmmm… I like the sound of that…” The shmendrik who nebach believes that overnight he became an ‘intellectual’ then calls everyone he/she knows and lectures them about individuality blah blah blah while his/her eyes are smarting from the smoke caused by the cigar the poor loser just learned to smoke to look intelligent…

People, wake up! Let’s strengthen ourselves in Emuna Peshuta - simple faith, for that is all that increases our chances of enduring the tidal wave of kefira that has been put into motion to destroy our core value. The howling winds are just that, howling winds that will soon pass – Amen; Ken Yehi Ratzon.

And yet another protected post. Wonder if it's intentional, or he's wondering why no one comments.

I dont know many OTD chareidi but I wonder if he's generalizing. Seems kind of one dimensional. Also, the overt racism turns me off. In my book it shows a lack of intelligence and conscience.

One more. Maybe he likes keeping a diary but doesn't want anyone reading it.
