Whatís wrong with loving chabad Jews for who they are and eating their shechita but not wanting your kids who have a different mesorah to hear about doing mitzvos to make the rebbe proud?

Absolutely nothing. Why would anyone assume that someone would come to Lakewood and tell your kids they need to make the Rebbe proud?

First of all, Lubavitch is already in Lakewood. Second, if that's a real concern, it's very easy for the powers-that-be to get involved to ensure the content of such an event is pre-approved. Third, of all the things that go down in Lakewood, Lubavitch shouldn't be the biggest concern. If we're still at a point in life where Lubavitch is our biggest fear... I got nothing.
I wouldnt say biggest fear. However, definitely a close 2nd to the pot crisis in lakewood.  Just imagine a Lubabitch dealer, sheesh, the vaad has already convened an emergency meeting to address

Because that's the MO of Chabad.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

And to think that when I posted this I meant it as satire...

Could it be that these robocalls are being sent out by the dissenters and they realize that by asaring it everyone will go so they instead seek to make it seem like a Chabad Moshiach event and they hope that would be a more effective deterrent?

Right, thatís definitely one side of the argument but the establishment possibly doesnít want them in lkwd for hashkafa reasons 🤷🏻‍♂️
The reasons go back decades and have nothing to go with other chisidusses moving to lkwd
odds are this is the case. none of these RY ascended their position in the last 2 decades. the old 'hashkafic issues' die slowly

but it is no longer socially acceptable to be 'chabadphobic' (and/or it won't be as effective a boogyman as per @YitzyS )

We don't call them MO, some use the phrase Chabad Lite

If anyone wanders into this thread now they will get the feeling that the future of Lakewood is Chabad...

TLS just came out that the letter banning the event was forged.

This gossip is way more entertaining than the event could possibly be.
