If that is your understanding of "not provoking", I really would like to know how it looks when you try to provoke.
No I believe he was REACTING to this anti-Polish propaganda and a certain German defending it.
1. The "German Media" did not invent the figure of Marek Fis
That may be true that the German media didn't invent Marek Fis, but don't you think they may have dropped some hints, as to what "he could do" to be a big German media star? But lets say the German media didn't drop any hints to Marek Fis. Why do you think unscrupulous Marek Fis decided to make himself appealing to a German audience by portraying himself as an animal? Even going as far as simulating a bestiality act?
russian, czech, french, american or asian comedians working in Germany
Its true that just about every nation or group of people get portrayed somewhere in an unflattering way. I do not deny that. But can you give me examples of these groups or others being portrayed as animals or simulating bestiality?
At the end of the day, it's the media executives who DETERMINE what is allowed to air to an audience or not. Just because somebody wants to say or do something negative that might get ratings, it doesn't mean its OK. For example here in the US we don't allow on public broadcasting, nudity, ethnic or racial slurs like the N-word or curse words just because there may people who don't mind going on TV doing and saying those things.
4. I never saw a Jewish Comedian working in Germany making fun about Jewish stereotypes.
Yes there is a good reason why the German media would not let a self-hating Jew provide anti-Jewish imagery for a German audience to have fun with. Its because of the sensitive history between Germans and Jews for obvious reasons. The Germans should also apply this to the Polish people since if the Germans won the war, they would have annihilated all of the Poles right after the Jews.
Most jokes about Germans make use of the good old Nazi stereotypes.
Most jokes (but not all) about Germans may refer to the stereotype of Germans "being Nazis" but they touch on the most MILDEST of Nazi imagery. Like examples you gave. The Germans are "dull" Germans "goose step". WOWWWWWW!!!! That's so degrading!!!!!! LOL!
Since we all agree that the Nazi German stereotype is that of Germans being Nazi pshycopathic, murdering beasts, WHERE is that imagery??
Can you show me some imagery of Germans acting like beasts and showing imagery of the following:
-A German Drinking blood for fun
-A German saying he likes ketchup because it reminds him of all the blood Germans spilled
-A German car using blood for windshield whiper fluid
-A German joking about using blood instead of water to wash his hands
-A German who urinates blood
-A German with oversized fangs
-A German who has wild blood shot eyes and is drooling
-A German simulating a bestiality act like Marek Fis was
-A Beast German who has long knuckle dragging arms with blood on them
-A German with devil horns on his head with one horn the label "GERMan" and the other horn "Pride"
-A German with claws or tentacles for hands to show how evil he is
-A German eating pieces of human flesh like pork chops
-A German poking out an eye of somebody and using it as a ping pong ball and then eating it
-A German Laughing while throwing babies up in the air and stabbing them with pitch forks (like in Shindlers list)
-A German engaging in dialog like "Well as a GERMan I need to feel better about myself now so I think I should start killing some Jews and Poles now"
-A German acting bezerk screaming and yelling at the top of his lungs for no apparent reason
-A German saying "Ya there is a good veason why they call us GERMans. Its because we are a parasitic predator people"
WHERE is the imagery on these TV shows you talk of Germans looking and acting like Psycho Nazi Beasts??
Where is the German Nazi BEAST imagery??
You don't have to like those jokes, but the manner in which some people here are responding makes it look like you are just waiting for an opportunity to feel offended and fly into uncontrolled rage.
I would agree with you that people shouldn't be offended at all negative imagery about their group of people. I am not. I gave an example of a Polish American TV character named Andy Sipowicz who was portrayed as an alcoholic who had problems with his dysfunctional Polish American family. Sipowicz is also not a very attractive man in appearance. Nevertheless I was not offended at that character since his character was at least BALANCED with other positive qualities and his negative qualities at least seemed possible for a human being to have.
However, this Marek Fis is doing things for a German audience that CROSSES the line. He is portraying a negative image of a group of people doing something that no rational human would ever do. Like acting like an animal and performing bestiality acts.
