Borger’s Cancerous Understanding of Teen Rebellion and Tshuvah (Repentance)

Shmuel Borger has produced a video, Still Your Child, superimposed on Shloime Daskal’s singing. It has provoked negative reactions by DovBear, Frum Satire, Hashkafah, and Failed Messiah. By my count, over 500 comments were submitted on these different blogs and on YouTube.

This entire video is about a power struggle. The father has a friendly relationship with his son when he poses no threat to him. When the son is young and totally reliant on his father, he is an exact copy and is accepted. He is accepted again when he is helpless because of cancer, r”l (have mercy on us), and does whatever his father wants. The father exerts his control by constant, frankly disturbing, touching. He slides his hands slowly over his son’s entire face when he is a child and the camera zooms in on them holding hands. The boy begs for the father’s touch on his deathbed and he gets a lot of it.

Take the Borger Challenge: Listen to His Entire Tape

Shmuel Borger has produced an infomercial tape for his video production, Tears for Moshiach, which is supposed to bring moshiach.

I have spoken to people who tried to listen to the entire tape but couldn’t make it to the end. Most of them said, “it made me gag.” After two failed attempts I forced myself to listen right through to the end. It is an astounding piece of audio work. It doesn’t teach anything of value about lashon horah, bringing the geulah, or even the true facts about Motty’s death. But it sure shows us the real Shmuel Borger.

He will amaze you with his fine speaking voice and his eerie level of emotionless control. He will display a full range of emotion but you will detect the faking. He will move from stories and histrionics into the closing sales pitch for his upcoming video and invite you become a financial sponsor. Klal yisroel could have benefited immensely from Sammy Borger’s talents if he had devoted himself to selling gadgets on television and donating the proceeds to worthy causes.

Take the Borger challenge. See if you can get yourself to listen to his tape right to the end. You can play it on YeshivaWorldNews’or you can download it. Continue reading

Did Motty Borger Commit Suicide?

An acquaintance staying at the same hotel tells me the wall is over four and a half feet high.” A friend of Motty tells me that Motty’s adult height was less than six feet. That means that the wall almost came up to Motty’s armpits. The idea of him falling over the wall by accident just does not calculate.

I am very confident when I assert that Motty Borger committed suicide. The more interesting question is what else is Shmuel Borger covering up and who are the others in on his cover-up. Continue reading
