The unacceptable side of Polish culture

I hear enough Polonisms from wannabee employers like Profi-Lingua, about "unacceptable" this and that.....

Poles need to take a long hard look at themselves.

Tonight I witnesssed a bloody fight outside the City rock pub on Chorzowska in Katowice - that lovely town that has been my abode these last few years....

One hard nut got the better of another and was kicking him half to death. Teeth and other parts scattered everywhere and bones cracking.

A crowd stood on, and hesitated, like in a car crash. Guess who had to stop in and call it after 2 minutes of the guy on the flloor, and gets a jab in the jaw before peace is restored ?

Englishman abroad of course - because a lot of you Poles are too yellow and frightened to get involved. A total disgrace.

Those who stood by,being entertained, be ashamed of yourselves the lot of you. Yellow scum. Not the first time have I have seen indifference, yet you judge the English when you choose to live in the UK. I am sick to death of your cowardice and false bonhomie.,

Of course, Happy New Year to all normal people who care for others.

This kind of thing happens everywhere. Move along people, nothing to see here but a frustrated limey.

I am British and i am calling a relatively large percentage of Poles out as cowards. Is that clear enough for you?

Having had 20 years in Silesia, I can form an opinion, right?

Feck you, pink shytt.

More likely both of them were worth each other, so no worth getting involved.

and gets a jab in the jaw before peace is restored ?

LOL !

Hilarious - and pathetic.

So you are suggesting I am gay? That is resulting to the old Polish stereotype, and why are we not surprised?

Do only gay people stop fights? :))

JD, while you may have grown up in a lovely cottage in Devon, I don't think you realise that this sort of sh*te goes on every Friday night in British cities too, infamously oop north, and Brits are themselves notorious for being badly-behaved abroad.

Indifference too is becoming common in all western nations, and perhaps has always been there. I haven't lived long enough to know. I don't have an objective scale with which I could measure who is worse. Even if Poles were worse, it's just a telling sign of how sh*tty their culture has become, with Brits trailing but slightly, and thus losing their right to brag about their good behaviour.

I admire your courage for stepping in. Well done. This holier-than-thou attitude, though, really doesn't help.

Point taken. It's not my country - but after 20 years of being ****** from a great height by ZUS and the socialist system I feel I have some say :)

There is always the legacy of Dzem and SBB to enjoy so I never said it's all bad :)

Oh, we have a tough cycbernet warrior boys! I must invite you to Mariacka in Katowice - what colour sweater will you be wearing? :)

I think they were waving money. It's called human nature. Statiscally speaking from my experience the idiot is the one who tries to stop the fight. Only experienced should make that decision.

I am not sure how symptomatic this is of Polish culture, but good on you for not being another one who just passes by. A mate of mine (here is Aus.), witnessed a DV incident on a Friday night in the street, the male was beating up the female, so he decided to intervene. It ended with both the male and the female chasing after him to beat him up. There is no doubt that it takes a lot of courage to intervene in a situation of this kind, personally I think that it has to come from a deep personal anger at the injustice that you are witnessing, which prompts you to intervene against your better judgment. Because there are plenty who have, and have come off second best as a result. Quite recently there was a story about a man who did just that here in Australia, and ended up in the hospital in a comma.

It's good you wasn't beaten too. We heard of many cases on tv when someone was not indifferent like you and end up... in coma.

But certainly you earn respect for being brave and possibly saving someone's life or health :)

Which is more stupid, the OP or the responses it got?

As a betting man, I'd put money on your being harder on the internet than IRL.

Why do the boards allow threads as imbecilic as this? On some other boards they have a special section called 'the zoo' for threads started by morons, and likely to appeal to idiots. I suggest a stricter moderation policy to attract a higher quality of poster.

What would be discuss then? How to cook pierogi and how to decline "ksiądz" as opposed to "książę"?

I don't hold a grudge against the OP for this thread. He's just still under the shock about witnessing that, hey it was just a few hours ago. Give him a break. I probably would be equally shocked to witness it.

Not the first time have I have seen indifference, yet you judge the English when you choose to live in the UK.

I lived in Ireland and saw the same kind of thing being done by Irish guys to each other. Worked in a pub in England and saw bullying fights, gangs picking on people... one guy knocks another to the floor and someone who wasn't involved just decides to throw a kick at the downed guys head... and I've been jumped by multiple attackers.

I'm British.

Fair play on you breaking it up. I've had a brit friend get attacked for no reason (other than being a Brit) and the cops just stood and watched!

But don't judge too harshly. When you don't necessarily know the situation you might not want to get involved... likewise, as one guy said when I picked him up and apologised for not doing more, "Don't be daft, you might have been down here with me".

Something more interesting than the OPs prejudices and internet 'hardman' fantasies.

We only have his version of events, and there is absolutely no way of knowing whether he is telling the truth or not.

So - I would have nothing better to do at 1 in the morning of a New Year than to invent some story then?

I am saying that Poles - through no fault of their own probably - are used to standing around - and being criminally passive - and letting the police or special forces deal with public disorder. This comes from communism times.

But , like a bad penny, the police of today, with restricted budgets, are never there where needed and always hassling where they are not merited.

This was a central part of Katowice, and a gathering point, and the police - who we pay to protect and marshal us - were totally conspicious by their absence.

If I hadn't stepped in, this guy might well have been kicked to death. And I don't need any credit - I was just astonished, and still am, that people just stood and watched.

End of.

This is interesting Trevek :)

We both know however that a lot of Irish lads actually know each other personally - and correct me if I am wrong - but they will actually fight bare-fisted IN the pub, and they dust themselves down afterwards when half the bar is wrecked (why are there little furnishings in London Irish bar) and then buy each other a drink.

I can comment because my grandmother was a Buckley from near Dublin.

For often they are boys from the bog, who are related or know the other as from a close town.

This was something else - the guy knocked the other down, and was putting the boot into the bloke on the floor for a full minute before I dived in.

Still mad about it now that nobody from the crowd stirred a muscle. :((

No it doesn't.

What do you mean Zetigrek? You mean that indifference is a new thing? I am suggesting that people think that the authorities will step in - when in fact the lack of police on the ground and actually integrating with the people was palpable.

There were NO police on the ground - exactly none.

Policemen should be in the community, not exactly laughing and joking with the community - but working with the population.

Two weeks ago I was the victim of an attempted robbery, driving on foreign plates - so a gang thought I was rich.... after the shootout between the cops and the bandits, all I heard from the cops who were trailing the gang and were shadowing me in the bank was "Oh, damn, I missed the action".

Useless, unprofessional fools and often we have to do their work for them :((

No one wants to bring any trouble on oneself. You were lucky they did not beat you too.

It your silly belief about those times. In fact people were more likely then to react than now. A teenager drinking alcohol or smoking could get a slap from a stranger.

Hard to say. But I'm old enough and wise enough to know not to believe everything I read on the internet. And I'm also aware that many people are often 'harder' in the virtual than in the real world.

Your grandmother used to fight in bars, then?

it's amusing what you say little boy, I live in Birmingham and used to travel by double deckers a lot and on the top floor there were always black school kids smoking cannabis and guess what, only me and other Poles were telling them off to stop doing it on many occasions while the English sat there pretending they don't see what's happening.

conclusion: I could call large percentage of the English out as a cowards however I'm not as ignorant as you are and I'm not going to do so, Is that clear enough for you?

Happy new year Mr. Frustrated!
