    That Rabbi's expose themselves so revealing who they really are, despite their scholarship, is all to the good. We should be grateful. The antidote is public criticism and shame. Rabbis have, and should have their freedom of speech and bear the consequences of exposing themselves. Let the chips fall where they may. In the other opinion article ( on Fascism) Yosef is being called the "national skunk". Shame or becoming a laughing stock clown ( decked out in costume above) will work.
