Dealing with constant insults against Polish

How do you know that they wouldn't accept Germany's reign in Europe?

How could anybody trust someone like Hitler. He wanted more than Europe. He was developing the atomic bomb. He had rockets that would soon reach the US. If it looks like **** - smells like **** - then it probably is ****.

If Britain had been defeated

thats a pretty big IF mate

that's out of context - the question was would the US stilll
have had the will to fight if the UK was defeated.
From what I've been tought - the IF wasn't that big

And how could anybody trust Stalin?

The lies of the Nazis about subhuman beings were uncovered latest at the east-frontline against the Soviets. The German soldiers knew very well that they were not fighting against subhuman beings, they could see and feel it every day. The Russian Tank T 34 shot all German tanks to scarp until the Germans had developed a new tank especially to fight the T 34, the Panther, much too late to turn the war. The "Stalin-Organ" (Katjuscha) was a real horror for German soldiers, and it has been in 1943, when higher SS-Officers tried to move Himmler to give up the lies of subhuman beings because they would make the German soldiers angry.

Otherwise it is a fact that SS gave it's best to kill Polish and Russian intelligence, and that Himmler wanted only a few years of school for Polish children, calculating only up to hundred, writing only their own names - the rest should have been learning that the Germans would be the true dominators and it would be the luck of the Poles to be dominated by them, that Poles would have to do everything what the Germans wanted and so on.

It has never been good for Poland to be neighbour of Germany (Austria is Germany,too) and Russia. That is not really other today. But reasonable people in Germany do not like that, reasonable people in Russia do not like that, and so the reason has to win for the sake of all.

Ihave dealt with comments all my life, even in academia. Though many ethnicities are made fun of, my view is that, in the U.S. at least, both the Italians and Poles are considered similarly ignorant. I think part of this view may have its origins in the common intense emotionality that flows through our cultures--what compares to an incited Pole (or Italian). That emotionality can be considered antithetical to rationality and intelligence. But it is that very emotionality that has produced wondrous art. Of course, it all gets skewed on the street level. It is that skewing that has skewered us.

There are really similarities in the opinions regarding Poles an Italians I think. In Germany both are associated with Mafia, and the crime rate in both countries seem to be higher than in France or Denmark for instances. Also Your words about incited Poles and Ialians may match. Otherwise I am a German even if I have a Polish name, and I can be incited, too, no Italian are Pole can be more if there is a true reason for me to be incited: Emotions have reasons, every kind of emotions. A problem is given if people are incited without having a TRUE reason for that. That problem You find at people who are treaten badly by others without true reasons but are not able to react against those one who are responsible for that. It is absolutely wrong to say You are never allowed to be incited, that demand is powered by those one who want to threat other people badly but do not want to get a reaction from them.

Lawsuits are your friends, i find polish people do not use law enough, if you're dealing with serious abuse sue sue sue and once more sue.

Serious abuse? If those Poles who are "legally" thrown into pauperism are having or seeing no chance to take care legally for themselves and their families so that they steal, for instance, You, Dekameron, think it is the right solution to make them a lawsuit and put them into prison. I say no! The conditions in Poland have to change that way that everyone will be able to take legally good care for himself and his family, but that needs finishing the true crimes of society, the crimes of capital and law.

Furthermore You are trying to bluff the people here doing as You where a Pole. You are not a Pole, You are a German as me, but in opposition to me You are a crazy and evil German: I am an Anarchist, but You are an SS-German.

This is an entry You have written in another thread.

The best way is to brush them off. I was always insulted for having red hair. I love having this colour. There was only 1 time I reacted in primary school and I put a guy in hospital.

Ignorance is bliss tho, in this context. Not in others

Pigment coating demonstrates what kind of UV-light intensity Your genoms are used to handle with: Some UV-light is necessary if Your food doesn't contain enough Vitamin D, but too much UV-light damages Your skin and Your eyes. So people living in regions with low UV-light are having red or blond hair and white skin, so that they can use even small dosages of UV-light for producing Vitamin D out of cholesterol. Otherwise people living in regions with high UV-light intensities are going better having dark hair, dark skin, dark eyes: Their pigment coating cannot use UV-light as effectively as white skin, but it is not necessary cause they get UV-light in high dosages. Too high for people with white skin - in those regions You are living better with dark skin. That is the reason of different colours, only the Inuits do not follow that rule: They have gotten so much Vitamin D through all centuries because of their special natural food, that they have kept a relative dark skin in a region with small UV-light intensity only.

So the colour of skins is no measure of the worth of a human being, it documentates only which were the circumstances of life of it's ancestors.

But: If any guys have hurt You because of Your hair, they have acted wrong. And ever a human being is acting wrong it needs to be disciplined, You could say educated. To bring s.o. into hospital because of spoken words only is really not a right mean, but to ignore wrong words isn't either: Set right words against wrong words, and then You do right!

I am of Polish decent and have dealt with insults/jokes all my life, personally I just ignore it, its just not worth the hassle! I recently got married and the other week my wife applied for some agency work online. She heard nothing for a few days so went in to the agency and they said, quote 'oh, we thought you were Polish'. Whats that suppose to mean! Small minded people...

Hello. My name is Benjamin Spychaj. I recently mentioned I am Polish to my friends and they constantly make jokes about my people. Every single day I have to hear about how Polish cavalry attacked German tanks with swords, how Polish have small penises, how "Polacks" are stupid and cannot do anything right. Does anyone have good ways to counter these kinds of jokes? Sometimes they really **** me off and I am tempted to go Polack and throw them out the window.

Pan Spychaj:

Do not be upset...If your current girlfriend or wife is satisfied with you penis, and how you use it, there is no reason to be troubled...In the 'Kingdom Come' you will not have a material penis in any case...Now, if Poles as a nation wish to eliminate this 'anti-Polonia' and hateful propaganda against them, they should do as the Jews do: buy up major organs of the press, make films, TV shows and educate the world as to the truth about the Poles...Also, this way we will not have to hear endlessly about the Jewish 'holocaust'...When Poles own the media, we can tell the truth about the slaughter of 3 million Poles by the Nazis and Communists.

Sto Lat, JoePilsudski

- Thank your jewish "friends" for that, especially in USA. How many TV shows, programs reffered to us with disrespect? The 'chosen" nation hates us for not being dumb enough and submitting to pay their demands.

I personally react with fire - last time my subordinate asked if I knew any Polish jokes, I responded: and what arrre you a F@#@ irrrish morrran? He was wearing clover logo baseball hat.

Just dont let people stomp over you! Ever!
That should be in your Polish blood.

My dear Juliet:

You are so angry, so I will make you laugh:

What happened when an insurgent missile hit the Polish Embassy in Baghdad?

The one light bulb was knocked out!


This Pole got married, but he was too dumb to know what to do on his wedding night.

"For God’s sake, Stan," said his bride, "you take that thing you play with and you put it where I pee."

So he got up and threw his bowling ball in the sink.


and here's a Jewish one:

Why do Jewish women hate colostomies?

Because they can never find shoes that match the bag!

Poles are not stupid. They are sublimly clever, but also very manipulative and extrememly deceitful.

Useful skills to survive in the modern world, wouldn't u say?

They have pulled off some neat ATM tricks in Scotland. The Poles are a resourceful bunch!! They overrate their education system but they have my respect. Polak potrafi rings true

You should just Laugh and hold your head up High. The Polish nation has a lot to be proud off. I was with a 92 year old Veteran Paratrooper who fought for the Allies at Arnhem in Sept 1944 at the 64th Battle Commerations. He could hardly walk yet got up and laid his wreath.

The people who are insulting do not know there History

Yeah, the passion of the people is quite sth. As a Scot, I can appreciate that. The insults are not rooted in facts. Ideas stick unfortunately.

However, the flip side is that it lets some people here see how it feels to be insulted. I've heard all kinds of primitive, racist remarks that, frankly, are unwarranted and don't need to be stated. Particularly towards Arabs.

Still, to conclude on a positive note, many Poles have heart. They can be proud of certain things

When I was a kid in the 1970's, I had a unique way of dealing with other kids who ridiculed me for being of Polish descent.

I used to put on a white T-shirt that had a big red Polish eagle on the front, and I would take any opportunity catch each kid alone and beat the snot out of him. As my "targets" fell one by one, my white t-shirt had a few nice blood spatters from nose-punches which I would never allow my mom to wash. :) Yes, yes it's a bit morbid but thoroughly effective.

I felt like a super-hero, Captain Polish or something ;p

^no you didn't^ that story is complete b.s. Jesus h. christ at least make it a believable lie, not some cereal box version of the Hussar Kid.

I've never heard in Russia jokes about specifically Poles (only jokes like "one day Rus, French, Polak and Jerry...") and I googled for them. I managed to find some jokes about Poles translated from German. Looks like Germans think you're thieves and mean.

I don't think jokes about any ethnic race is funny when it is demeaning. Even Ronald Reagan US President made a joke about the Polish during his campaign...and nothing happened to him. He would be crucified for it today. I think we all have to find the humor within ourselves, but to demean someone is another story.

I can honestly say that if i've ever heard anyone disrespect Polish people, i've always defended them and I love the fact we have many Polish people over in the UK. I've always found Poles polite and respectful and goodness, we can use a little more of that in our country sometimes. :)

Oh god, they just a banch of stupid idiots.
I have to reasure you poles not any worse than any other nation if not better!
It just the fact that there are so many of them in the UK now, and you know the greater amount of people the greater amount of not very nice among them.

But in general I think poles are actualy more intilegent, hard working and most of all persistent than many other nations in this country!

Here it comes again. We are better, smarter, faster, stronger etc etc. Daft Punk should write the Polish national anthem:

'Most of all persistent than many other nations in this country'.

This almost qualifies as a Bushism.
