On Twitter, Satmar Headquarters (@HQSatmar), a quasi-official Satmar Twitter news feed, equated New York State Assemblyman Karl Brabenec to Hitler, Haman and Pharaoh because he sponsored a bill that requires the legislature of Orange County, New York to approve the expansion/land annexation plans of the Satmar hasidic Village of Kiryas Joel.
"Pharaoh, Haman, Hitler, etc. Didn't succeed in curbing growth of Jews so will Assemblyman @KarlBrabenec not succeed http://bit.ly/1A0pzGv," the Satmar Headquarters tweet reads.
You would think that Satmar hasidic PR hack Yossi Gestetner – who also founded and leads OJPAC, the supposed Orthodox Jewish Public Affairs Committee in neighboring Rockland County – would condemn that type of hate-mongering and calling political opponents Nazis, especially because he lost his job with the New York State Republican Party several years ago in part because he himself did the same thing, and was outed for it by FailedMessiah.com.
But Yossi Gestetner never changes his stripes, and instead of condemning the comparison of Brabenec to Hitler and Pharaoh, he merely says what's going on in Rockland County is the same.
Gestetner Tweeted twice in response to the Satmar Headquarters Tweet:
"@ShimonRol @HQSatmar @KarlBrabenec YOU do not have the right to take over Orange County. Follow the LAW. #StopKJAnnexation"
"@ShimonRol @HQSatmar @KarlBrabenec It is very concerning that people, who lose elections, run to Albany to change State laws for individual"
Note there is no condemnation from Gestetner at all. In his mind, calling opponents "Hitler" or the two biblical archenemies of the Jewish people, "Pharaoh" and "Haman," is perfectly fine.
Here are screenshots of the Satmar Headquarters Twitter post and the responses to it, including two from Gestetner.
