Many times we have heard people who hate hassidic, yeshivish, and in general more religous people, argue that these groups are not “intellectual” and the only books they look at are the gemara so they obviously know nothing about a scholarly argument.
On that note I would like to point out what some people I have been arguing with have said after I wrecked them in an intellectual argument.
You sir, are liar, liar pants on fire. And everyone knows it now. Another kiruvnik discredited. My work here is done.
Cheerer, have you considered dating a militant feminist? Because your whole, “That’s not funny!” refrain would go over quite well with those women.
DK after someone questioned his making holocaust jokes in the context of the Heeb Magazine Contest for fake holocaust stories
Liz: No matter how you want to spin it, Holocaust “jokes” are not funny.
DK: Then don’t laugh.
And of course DK’s response to my argument based on his making a satirical posting about the OU giving a haskgacha to Zyklon B
Me: I will not be told that I “didn’t think” from someone who marginalizes the holocaust.
DK: I will not have one of my best satires marginalized by someone who connects issues that are not interrelated.
These are the people who claim there that frummies are “anti-intellectual”.
These are the people who are trying to stop kiruv.
These are the people who say religious people are stopping the advancement of the Jewish People
These are the people we fight for future of our people.
Don’t ever forget it.
