THE LAKEWOOD WHO?
Yosef Benari October 18, 2021
The NJ Globe in it’s Friday edition reported that The Lakewood Vaad, is endorsing the re-election of Phil Murphy for Governor.
I will not discuss now that there appears t be more intelligence in a large tray of stuffed cabbage than in the entirety of the Lakewood Vaad. This is a subject for another time. However it is important to point out, that the ‘Vaad,’ is nothing more than a self appointed group of people who claim to represent the greater Lakewood Jewish community.
This is far from true, as anyone living here could attest. If you were to do a ‘man on the street’ survey you would immediately discover that most people living in Lakewood do not even know who they are. But even this is a moot point for the issue at hand. Let’s drill down on the accomplishments of Governor Murphy over the last four years.
Let us ask, why exactly should the Community of Lakewood support his re-election. In other words, what has he done for us that deserves our vote?
Furthermore, I will demonstrate that he has actually done a great deal of damage to the Jewish Community of Lakewood, and the only thing we should be supporting is the cost of his expedited exit from the Governors mansion which we hope takes place as soon as possible.
First Executive Order issued by Mr. Murphy upon his entry to office was was the ‘Promotion of Equal Pay and Gender Equity. https://nj.gov/infobank/eo/056murphy/pdf/EO-1.pdf (For those who want to actually read the Executive orders, I have taken the liberty of inserting links to the actual document.)
Murphy passed the NJ Equality act which we reported on last week. https://jnews.us/wp-admin/post.php?post=5298&action=edit
In general Murphy is as left wing as it gets. There is no doubt he will impose mask mandates and vaccine mandates after his election (G-D Forbid) on November 4th.
The Vaad of Lakewood, whomever they are does NOT care about the Kolel members, or the young struggling workers seeking to keep above the waterline and build good lives for their families.
This is not an attempt to blast the Vaad. They have failed Lakewood for years. They preach the need for HaKaras HaTov to a candidate who violates every single ethical and moral principle that we live by.
WE APPEAL TO YOU. WE MUST VOTE FOR THE REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE SIMPLY AS A MEASURE TO RID NJ OF A IMMORAL MENACE WHO SEEKS TO DESTROY OUR JEWISH VALUES.
We as a News Organization have no vested interests in any politicians except for that which we know and hope for as their protection of us as a community which is critical to us while we are still in ‘Golus.’
Many Yeshiva people have expressed opinion that they don’t wish to vote since they doubt they will make a difference. Only Hashem knows what the outcome will be. But I can assure you that we are being delinquent if we do not go out and vote in droves. If we do so we will make a difference.
We implore you, please go out and vote republican all the way. DO NOT LISTEN TO THE VOICES OF A FAKE VAAD AND EVEN AGUDAS YISROEL WHO HAS INSTALLED A PROFIT SEEKING PUPPET IN LAKEWOOD TO ACHIEVE PERSON POLITICAL AGENDAS
