The video of the jews celebrating is much more putrid than the still pictures. How did they ever not think these pictures/videos would be leaked.... arrogance and stupidity!!! To other Jewish people, other than those living in Postville, is this normal to celebrate something of this nature?

WIll someone be forwarding the pictures and the video to the Iowa newspapers?

No.

Seems a bit rowdy for a wake

The songs are mostly not Lubavitch songs.

The last song they are singing is particularly disgusting as they sing Vechol Karney Reshoim Agadea Teromamna Karnos Tzadik which means that the G-d should destroy all the Horns of the Evil Doers (the Government should be destroyed since they are evil for arresting him) and that G-d should elevate the Pick Up the horns of the Tzadik, obviously meaning that Rubashkin is the Tzadik and the Gov are Reshoim and they are praying that all Government should be destroyed so that Rubashkin the Tzadik, may prevail.

These people are not only arrogant and disgusting, they are NUTS!

Seems a bit rowdy for a wake

This celebration shows not only the depravity of the Rubaskin clan but of the jewish community of Postville for participating in what was clearly an alcohol, sugar and caffine fueled rave. (Vodka and Mtn Dew from plastic cups. Interesting mixture. Why not just go for Red Bull Shooters.)

Behavior like this makes it clear that we are not getting any closer to the time of the Moshiach.

This is what our forbears got burned up for, so these abominations could wander the world and thrive and bring everlasting shame upon the rest of us Jews. There's not a pious hassid among these fools. They look like a bunch of old toothless thugs.
How is Chabad-Lubavitch going to deal with this? Tell us straight up. WTF are you going to do about these shandas?

Dancin' About Meat (apologies to Martha & The Vandellas, Madonna/Esther, et al):

Callin' out around the frum velt.
Are you ready for a brand new cheat?
Bail is here and the time is right,
For dancin' about meat.
They're dancin' in Postville.
(Dancin'about meat.)
Down in Crown Heights.
(Dancin' about meat.)
In New York City,
(Dancin' about meat.)

All we need is meiskeit, (sweet sweet),
Sweet (sweet sweet) meiskeit.
They'll be mishegas everywhere (everywhere).
They'll be shucklin' and swayin' and Yidden prayin'
Dancin' about meat.

Oy, it doesn't matter what you wear.
Just as long as it is black.
So come on every guy grab a guy,
Everywhere around the shul.

They'll be dancin'.
(Dancin' in about meat.)
They're dancin about meat.
(Dancin' about meat.)
This is a big frabringen for Chabad yingen,
A chance for crooks to meet.
They'll be laughin', singin' and PR mud slingin'.
Dancin' in about meat.

Chabad Houses...
(Dancin' about meat.)
Eretz Yisrael now.
(Dancin' about meat.)
Can't forget Down Under.
(Dancin'about meat.)

All we need is money, (sweet sweet),
Sweet money (sweet sweet money).
We need kesef everwhere (or else despair).
They'll be suin', swearin'-in,
And court records playin' (playin').
Prosecutin' about meat.

Oh, it doesn't matter what you do.
Just as long as you drink l'chaim on Mountain Dew.
So come on every guy grab a bochur,
Everyone call a rich macher.

They're dancin', they're dancin' about meat.(They think the charges will be beat.)
Way down in Morristown, every clown.
They're dancin' about meat
(Dancin' about meat.)
Let's form a big strong lie,
Get a nice necktie, we're dancin' about meat.(Dancin' about meat.)
Across the ocean blue, all REAL Jews.
[Fade.]
They're dancin' in the...

Let's see who has the last dance. As another song says, "Save the Last Dance for Me."

Another instant classic for your next 'Greatest Hits' album, Yochanan.

The photos and video have got to be the worst thing to ever happen to the makers of Mountain Dew.

Save the Last Dance for Bubba (apologies to Ben E. King, a true mentsch):

You can dance
Ev'ry dance with the guy
Who toasts you l'chaim
Let him hold you tight
You can smile
Ev'ry smile for the man who held your hand
'Neath the beis medrash light
But don't forget the jail will be home
And in whose cell will be your hovel
So darlin', save the last dance for Bubba, mmmm

Oh, I know (oh, I know)
That the music's cool
Like Mountain Dew
Go and have your fun
Laugh and sing
But while you're in the cell
Don't give your hole to just anyone
But don't forget your cellmate at home
And in whose arms you're gonna hover
So boychick, save the last dance for Bubba, mmmm

Bocher, don't you know
I love you so
Can't you feel it when we learn?
I will never openly say so,
I love you oh, return

You can dance (you can dance)
Go and carry on
'Til the trial is done
And it's time to go
If he asks if you're all alone
Can he take you home you must tell him "Nu?"
'Cause don't forget what will be your home
And in whose arm's you're gonna wait
So, darlin', save the last dance for your cellmate

---- Instrumental Interlude ----

'Cause don't forget the jail will be your home
And in whose arm's your heart will flutter
So, darlin', save the last dance for Bubba, mmmm

Save the last dance for Bubba, mmmm-hummmm
Save the last dance for Bubba, mmmm

I had thought about the caffeine factor. Bear in mind that Mountain Dew has much more of the stuff than Coca Cola. Except for Jolt, it has the most caffeine of any carbonated soft drink.

State online court records showed Friday that three lawsuits have been filed against the company in Allamakee County since August, seeking collection of debts. Two of the lawsuits, filed by Vulcan Industries Inc. and by Benjegerdes Machine of Waukon, were filed Oct. 15. A Benjegerdes company official said Friday that the company is seeking $29,064 for equipment purchased by Agriprocessors.

Court records also disclose that two liens totaling $278,038 were filed Thursday by Viking Electric of Spring Grove, Minn.

City officials and former plant workers said that a Des Moines-based staffing company withdrew about 450 workers from Agriprocessors on Thursday following a dispute with plant managers.

Besides the lawsuits, Agriprocessors also owes the city of Postville nearly $70,000 in overdue fees for the use of a city-owned wastewater treatment lagoon, Radloff said. Managers at the plant have not paid their bill in two months, she said.

The lagoon, which sits behind the plant, generated a $69,603.78 bill over the two-month period. Plant managers did, however, pay $5,771 this week in late utility bills, Radloff said.

Radloff said the overdue bills might not necessarily reflect the plant's recent financial hardships because the city has always struggled to keep Agriprocessors up to date with its payments.

"It's nothing new to us," Radloff said. "Agri has always been slow with paying."

Ahmed Hussein, a 21-year-old Somali, said the sudden layoffs were the result of a dispute between Agriprocessors and Jacobson Staffing. Several company-owned apartments briefly lost water and electricity last week, he said.

WSC: cheers.

What's this about?

http://iowaindependent.com/7913/as-agriprocessors-sinks-deeper-elected-officials-react-to-rubashkin-arrest

In the week prior, inspectors from the Iowa Department of Natural Resources discovered a cow skull, hide and two dismembered legs in the plant’s wastewater lagoon. Management was not cited for a violation because, according to an Iowa DNR spokesman, “it was not standard operating procedure but did not pose a significant environmental risk.”

http://www.gazetteonline.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20081102/NEWS/711029938/1006

There was a good deal of confusion Saturday about whether the plant's employees still have jobs.

A supervisor for Jacobson Staffing of Des Moines, which provides employees for Agriprocessors, said he had been told turkey processing would resume at the plant last night, chicken processing would resume today and beef processing would begin on Tuesday.

But one employee complained: "They told me I didn't have a job, then they told me to come to work and now they're telling me to come to work but I might not get paid."

Meanwhile, a party in Postville for Rubashkin on Thursday night after he returned from his initial court appearance in U.S. District Court in Cedar Rapids was not sitting well with residents.

The Farbrengen was held at a Postville Jewish meeting house. Farbrengens are generally held on auspicious occasions, to celebrate birthdays or anniversaries, for instance. Pictures and video from the celebration were posted on several Jewish Web sites, showing several participants dancing and laughing.

YL,

As usual, great parodies. Can you do one for Buffalo Springfield's "For What It's Worth"?

Perhaps what is most disturbing is that they videotaped and photographed the celebration and dancing.

I am sure other thugs, such as mafia and drug dealers, commiserate with their cronies when they are released on bail, and share a drink.

But to take pictures and make a video, and proudly post them on the internet?

With the amount of alcohol they are ingesting, perhaps they should be singing the rhyme "Ring Around the Rosy"--'til they all fall down.

Maybe this is where they got the stuff!

Steve: Thank you. Since this is your second or third request, I can't refuse (although 3 parodies in short sucession is a bit much):

There's something happening there
What it is, makes the Gentiles sneer
There's a shochet with a cow over there
Hanging it up by a shackle in the air

I think it's time we stop, Yidden, why such crime
Somebody should be doing time

There's battle lines being drawn
Nobody's right if everybody's wrong
Jewish people blogging their minds
Getting so much resistance from behind

I think it's time it's stopped, nu, what's that sound
Agriprocessors should be going down

What a field-day for the ICE
A thousand illegals won't suffice
Butchering meat and carrying fake green cards
Mostly say, this occupation is hard.

It's time we stop, hey, what's that plan
Agri should be in the Rubbishcan.

Paranoia strikes deep
Into your neshomeh it will creep
It starts when of questons you're afraid
You step out of line, the rabbi come and put in you in cherem all day

Who is the Rabbi pouring the Vodka?

Yasher Koach, YL!

The local stores in Florida are experiencing no meat shortage.

They are watching the situation and report there was one day when there were no deliveries.

As of today - Sunday November 2 - there is no meat shortage.

Rubashkin is planning on reopening the beef kill on Wednesday. Maybe they'll use flashlights.

What a wonderful simcha.

COMMEN # 75 Today at 01:29 PM a GEZERA Min Hashomayim Says:

It's quite obvious to anyone who cares to notice that all the endless huge "TSUNAMI" of Tzoros that has befallen the Rubashkin family, this week, is anything but merely "natural", Derech Hateva.

This is a clear GEZERA min Hashomayim and simply doesn't make any sense in Derech Hateva, except as a Gezera Min Hashomayim.

According to Torah, Goyim are not Baaley Bechira, they "indict" whomever G-d forces them to do what he wants them to do - a Goy does not have True "Free Choice", except for his 7 Mitzvos perhaps.

--------------------------------------------

COMMENT # 74

In Crown Heights, Chabad Lubavitcher believe that the Gezera against the Rubashkin family all started with the Rubashkin family "diversion" of the Lubavitch Kehila Owned "CHK" Hechsher on Rubashkin Meat, and even more so by the Rubashkin Family encouraging and funding Moshe Rubashkin to Hijack the Beis Din of Crown Heights, throwing out the Mara Deasra Harav Schwei and installing Impostors who were never ethically elected to displace the Properly Elected Rav, Harav Schwei Shelita.

-------------------------------------------

COMMENT # 73

Moshe Rubashkin is expected to have to pay a 1/2 million dollar fine tomorrow in a PA court room and is expected to sentenced to several years in Jail this Monday, Nov 3, for all the wonderful "chesed" he has done to the Crown Heights community and to the Mara Deasra, Harav Schwei.

How blind can anyone be not to realize that the entire family, each and everyone one has recently been accused of endless strings of huge crimes and even the one single "rabbi" who supported all of Moshe Rubashkins criminal activity, even this "Rav" himself has his own package of problems with having been placed into a severe Cherem by Rabbi Herbst Beis Din, known as the "Beis Din of America - Ein Moshe".

---------------------------------------------

COMMENT # 72

To anyone who thinks that this is an exaggeration or an overstatement, think again.

This is no Joke but a VERY VERY VERY serious matter here.There is a very severe CHEREM and NIDOY and KLOLEH against anyone who forces himself to be "Rav" on a Kehila against their will.

The Cherem is form Rav Hai Goen, Rabeinu Tam, the Chasam Sofer and 150 Rabbonim Geoin of generations ago.

Does anyone still wonder how an entire family who supports "forcing fake Rabboinim Al Hatzibur", has "all hell break loose" on them?

Wake Up Yidden and Smell the Coffee.

-----------------------------------------------

COMMENT # 70

The apple (i.e. Moshe Rubashkin) does not fall far from the tree (i.e. Aaron Rubashkin).

He (Moshe Rubashkin of the Vaad Hakohol of Crown heights) was head of the CHK, with a tremendous responsibility for Kashrus in our community.

I ate from Shor Habor (untill recently when I now, no longer consider it Kosher).

We were told that their standards were better than Weismandel.

Were they lying to us?

Aron Rubashkin pleaded guilty to taking money from workers that was not theirs.

Moshe Rubashkin pleaded guilty to storing dangerous chemicals and lying to Feds and served time in Fort Dix Federal Jail, for CHECK FRAUD.

His son, Sholom also pleaded guilty too.

And this is the crime family that we trusted for kashrus?

A boosha on Chabad Lubavitch for this.

The Rebbe would have never allowed this to happen.

I am confused. Didn't the Rebbe allow this to happen. After all, isn't he still alive and in charge of Lubavitch?

Where did these comments come from? VIN, YWN??
Why post them here?

writers of previous Des Moines Register and other newspaper articles about this town have listed their e-mail addresses, so still photos of this or the video clip could be sent to them. The video clip could be posted on youtube. Am sure no one expected "Fiddler on the Roof" when they moved here but not this.

Umm, it IS on YouTube.

Correction: It is on Google Video.

maybe since some of these Jewish employees had not been paid for weeks being offered a party to attend with food sounded good. I wonder what the (non-Jewish) first manager of the AGRI plant thinks when he can look from the spiritual worlds and see what is going on. Did't his family donate month for the opening of the Jewish library in Postville? Hopefully this is not where the photos were taken.

YL, Maybe they can call themselves the ShyLites.
And shout out to 'meyer', dude what were you doing under the table in the one of the frames?

The kids that are dancing in this video- what are the lessons they are learning from this?
Isn't this a form of child abuse? If only some government agency could step in and remove the children from this dangerous cult.

Was Aaron Rubashkin present at the celebration?

All of you will do time NOT HERE but in Shomayim. The loshon hora makes me sick.


90% of the above commentators will all burn in hell, lose all their moneyand DIE YOUNG! I HOPE!!!!!

You people are cowards!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am in no way a supporter of someone that commited a crime - However, ALL OF YOU ARE DISGUSTING and should be ashamed of yourselves.

We all have our own load of dirty laundry, would you want me to spread it here?????

ALL OF YOU - GO TO HELL! BURN BURN BURN!!!

This is not a Christian blog or a Muslim blog. This is a JEWISH blog . . . so, take your "burn in Hell" rhetoric someplace where they believe in that stuff.

"BURN BURN BURN!!! Disco Inferno..."

Even Dr. Lederman, who works out of the Gundersen Medical Clinic in Postville, is partaking in the celebration on the video. I no longer have any respect for this doctor. I've been told he even has some skeltons in his closet... filed for bankruptcy years ago..wonder if that's how he got his medical schooling paid for...

++"BURN BURN BURN!!! Disco Inferno..."++

It's Burn BABY Burn.

Now I can't the that tune out of my head...
burn the mother down...

I feel a "Disco Inferno" parody coming. YL?

YL, Maybe they can call themselves the ShyLites.

Or the ShyLocks...

Sarah P: Yes, I know. I couldn't resist. But thanks. Nice sheitl, BTW.

Steve: The only disco music you can parody is from the BeeGees. Too few lyrics in the others.

I think all of Yochanan's songs should be recorded by the Neginah Orchestra in time for next year's Bayz Cheshvan farbrengen.

Sholom Rubashkin's party reminds me of Steve Rubell's going off to jail Studio 54 party.

Why not the Negiah Orchestra ;)

Sholom Rubashkin's party reminds me of Steve Rubell's going off to jail Studio 54 party.


Just a guess, but the Studio 54 party was probably a whole lot more fun, though. ;)

The only disco music you can parody is from the BeeGees. Too few lyrics in the others.

"I Will Survive" has a lot of lyrics . . . but true . . . most other disco songs have short verses with a lot of repetition of the title/chorus over and over. (Though for all the repetition of the chorus, "Good Times" by Chic has a decent amount of lyrics, too.)

Some serious hallucinogens should be introduced into their booze by their next farbrengen or depraved tisch.

Yochanan:

Don't get confused- the Negiah orchestra is the group covering your Lanner songs.

I think you are underestimating the disco possibilities, ABBA has texts worthy of parody, think of something for "dancing queen" (here's a first line, though I think the song "S.O.S." might be more appropriate to this situation):

Pottsville town where the salary's low
Never shecht with a single blow...

Ha Maven yavin. I consider Abba more pop than disco, but that's pilpul.

in my synagogue we have a policy about third generation american born lubavitch or satmar chasidim. its very simple, they are no longer Jewish and they cannot get an aliyah unless they are willing to undergo hatifas hadam and mikva.
their actions have nothing to do with yiddishkeit. in our humble rabbis opinion, "they are shiite muslims who drink".
once again this party shows that these shmekels have goyische kups. Nebich, a whole generation lost to yiddishkeit.

About two months ago I put up an item attempting to contextualize the Rubashkin's scandal historically. See The Rabbi's Cow is Always Kosher.
