Brooklyn, NY – Democratic mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner received a harsh reception Thursday during a campaign stop in Jewish Flatbush on heels of the most recent revelations of his continued Internet sexual exploits.
POLITICKER (http://bit.ly/16fUF8Q) reports that Weiner began attracting critics while he posed for photo-ops, volunteering as a server inside the kitchen at Masbia of Flatbush on Coney Island Avenue, a kosher food pantry.
Upon seeing the gaggle of photographers and reporters, a crowd began to gather, resulting in one woman—who refused to give her name—stepping forward to speak.
“He’s a piece of dirt and we don’t want him in out neighborhood,” the woman told reporters. “I’m a neighborhood resident and I’m an observant Jew and we want nothing to do with the likes of Anthony Weiner.”
Hostility towards Weiner continued in a nearby kosher deli as news spread tha Weiner was campaigning in the neighborhood.
“I personally feel that somebody who has a reputation for obfuscation and lying and cheating and low moral values is not someone who deserves to lead New York City,” said 58 year-old Charles S.
Another man on the street, who also refused to give his name and would only describe himself as “half-Jew, half Gypsy,” said, “He’s a clown.”
Upon learning what the commotion was, a younger man wearing a kippah while guiding a pushcart asked about Weiner, “Did he bring any pictures? He’s a sick puppy.”
A 55 year-old modern Orthodox restaurant worker, Seth Goldberg said, “I wouldn’t vote for him. I mean, if his wife can’t trust him, why would I trust him?”
Goldberg added, “Religion has nothing to do with it. He’s not the right guy. I don’t care if he was a rabbi with a beard. If you do what he did, I wouldn’t vote for him.”
I guess his wife threw him out and he was hungry so he went to eat at Masbia
“I wouldn’t vote for him. I mean, if his wife can’t trust him, why would I trust him?”
That logic is not universal at all, many very good politician’s had issues.
His arrogance is astounding. He turned on his faith,
He turned on his family
Now wants the opportunity
To do the same to us
It’s time we turned him….. Out of office ….permanently.
It’s amazing to me how far this has gone. He is a menival and everyone should be making a fuss!
JUST WONDERING LADY!
You were protesting against immorality! GREAT! I hope that you’re NOT planning to vote for that lady-candidate who’s openly gay which according to the Torah is REAL DIRT!
LET’S face the fact, Wiener is NOT Jewish! IF DIRT THEY’RE ALL MORE OR LESS DIRT!
Wow. So much for being modest.
I would not eat that food. Who knows where his hands were 5 minutes ago. Hahaha
Weiner has my vote to dish out the food in the Masbia kitchen as long as there is a mashgiach temidi.
Someone there should have invited Anthony to put on tefillin, or to give tzedoka, or to sit and learn some Torah – turn the Masbia photo op into an opportunity to open for him the doors of teshuva
someone should be working with him quietly to help him get therapy and to put on tefilling, learn, etc
I too have challenged him. Weiner pushed obamacare on us and still maintains it’s the best plan! When asked why he doesn’t have it, he said congress gave us a better deal. Why did Masbia host him? Huma had grandiose plans for his mayoral bid. As first lady of NYC she would have been able to welcome all her Muslim
Brotherhood relatives and associates. The Wall St. Journal showed a connection to the Clintons with fund raising and other financial connections that have been helping Weiner’s campaign.
What chutzpa. 100,000 people gathered at Citifield and After all frum Rabbonim prohibited the internet and because of what disasters it could bring, we invite the DISASTER himself. He acted so improperly, that even the non frum world including his friendly democrats say he needs psychiatric help and that he is a potential menace. How could Hamasbia allow him thru their doors simply for a little publicity. What do we tell our children?
By the way, I hope they made him wash his hands with sanitary wipes before hetouched the food. Yech!!
The city council speaker is worse than him according to Halacha
I and my family are voting weiner. He is the lesser of the evil of the two front runners. Quinn is herself married to another woman but also wants to turn this city into another san francisco. If she is elected it would be illegal to perform a bris in the nyc area. Weiner as obsessed as he is with women has stated he would allow jews to carry our circumcision ceremonies in nyc. Quinn has stated she opposes vouchers to yeshivas. Weiner is a politician and would help our struggling yeshivas. So if you can afford your childrens tution and have the time to travel to a familys bris to monsey or Long Island than vote Quinn. I’m voting for the lesser evil, mr. Weiner.
I’m disgusted that Masbia, a respected organization, would allow a slug like Weiner to use what they do to promote his campaign. What did he promise them? Anything? They should be ashamed of themselves. Would they have other perverts, like some we all know, use them to promote themselves for whatever reason? This creep is a disgrace. It’s not like he did it once, did Tshuva & changed. He’s still at it! Masbia, you should have kept out of it.
Let’s forgive him; turn the other check.
If we forgive Hillary for bengazi, bill, kissing Arafat, we can forgive this.
Huma forgived him, cant you??
Brooklyn Ir hatorah.
Look at you fools, thinking you live in the greatest place in the world.
Weiner is NOT Jewish. His father is … his mother is not. Look it up online and you’ll see he’s been quoted admitting as much. Of course, knowing him, he could have just been lying.
It is a shanda that two high profile Yidden, on both coasts, Mayor Bob Filner of San Diego, and mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner of NYC, are both involved in sexual scandals, involving perverted acts. Unfortunately, there are many anti-Semitic websites, which “qvell”, at this opportunity, to portray Yidden as perverts! A shanda!
His mother’s maiden name is finkelstein. Sounds pretty Jewish to me…
