You mention all from one party and I mention both. I will leave it at that.  :)
You seem to forget the coordinated violence they & their families were subject to on a regular basis. It came to a point they needed police protection wherever they went.
Just mentioning both doesnít make it fair & balanced.

That is because it has become common place on the left, while this is an isolated event. (Feel free to point to other incidents.)

It was despicable then and it is despicable now. At the end of day these people are fathers and mothers going out with their family for dinner. And donít deserve to be harassed and humiliated in front of their kids. Thereís no excuse for such behavior. Itís a shame seeing people stooping to Maxines level.
You were doing so good but couldn't help yourself going there.

While I understand the mentality on the satmar side, if the government is picking on them etc given that a rebbishe wedding is a cause of great rejoicing for all chasidim etc.

Then I read about people dying and wonder what cognitive dissonance exists?

I've heard all the arguments, everyone got it, corona isn't killing people.. etc etc and people are still dying.. so you can have your wedding... It's yihareg v'al yavor, the goyim are doing it.

It's a massive chillul hashem.

https://www.chabad.org/library/article_cdo/aid/222869/jewish/What-Is-a-Chassid.htm

Yanki Tauber is a great writer (is it his grandfather's genes?) and that's a very nice piece. I wonder: How those that consider themselves Chassidim but haven't studied in Tomchei Temimim feel about this portrayal? Could we have some input?

And one major thing that I think is missing from the piece is that a Chossid has a Rebbe (what the relationship between Chossid and Rebbe is or should be, would have been nice to see Tauber write about, but the omission is glaring).

Did you pick Dexter and Jerry in the hospital on purpose? Probably not, but fitting.

How dare you take a deep breath while people are dying!?! And what do you think happens after a deep breath? That's right, an exaggerated exhale that will expel deadly Chassidic droplets that will murder thousands.

And this.

Its what has been repeatedly stated here. Realize that chillul hashem effects all Jews but especially chassidim.

Take for example, Assemblyman Simcha Eichenstein who I know very well and is a chossid. He came out quite a few times over the pandemic months against Cuomo and calling him out for singling out our community. He stood up for us. However, he is now appalled by this revelation of the wedding and it makes his standing up for us that much harder. That's what these people need to realize - the damage that happens that can't be undone.

Have your weddings and keep quiet about it. And not just for 2 weeks. סיג לחכמה שתיקה.

When did it happen? I must have missed the memo. Can I finally throw out all my masks?
