Your heading says it all, they couldn't keep it up individually. Obviously their lives are so full, that such an event is all their entertainment in the world that
weekend.

Next time don't engage so emotionally, doing so grants them power they don't deserve. They probably secretly covet non-Swiss partners.

Besides they wouldn't be able to appreciate the ethical problem for a blackbelt to engage with the defenseless even when provoked.
Yes, many such folks enjoy it when they see that their xenophobe and/or racist insults make the person targetted angry and upset

They may even say "she was upset, but could not say anything, as she knew that we of course are right". YES, such people usually believe to be right

Hence the term "far right"

There is a little saying in German

Die Linke wollen mehr Rechte
Die Rechte wollen weniger Linke

doesn't translate well unfortunately

okay, not especially profound or clever either, but it might just amuse you in some obscure sort of way.

This must be either a Swiss German saying, coming from the political right or both. The grammar mistakes gave it away...

The saying, if translated into Standard German is
- Die Linken wollen mehr Rechte
- Die Rechten wollen weniger Linke

so that I do not quite see a grammar problem

beside the point that a man who in the past used that
saying had the name Fischer and happens to be a
German

and the saying in Swiss German is different anyway
- Di Lingge wänd mee Rächt
- Di Rächte wänd weniger Linggi

The Akkusativ in CH-German results in "Linggi"
instead of "Di Lingge"

Re: 4 racist men pick on 5ft.2" oriental woman.

Hi Phoenix,
sorry to hear about your experience. What you did was the best. If you indulge in any kind of conversion with these stupid people...it would not lead anywhere...and could only get worse.
Best is to walk away...because these idiots lack any basic common sense.

So, as this is the ENGLISH forum, what does it say in English?
Even if it doesn't translate well, there must be some sort of equivalent.

Re: 4 racist men pick on 5ft.2" oriental woman.

Dearest Phoenix2,

Chi

Once upon a time I had a Malaysian girl friend, about 5'2". She had been raised with private tutors for everything, education, religion(all)...and a martial arts Master. When she told me this, having done some martial arts myself, like a smartass, I began dancing around like Bruce Lee. She looked at me and said smiling, "The easiest thing in the world would be to kick you right in the nuts." I poked a little air jab just in front of her nose... and suddenly found myself on the floor as if struck by lightning. She didn't touch me. She helped me up with a hug, and laughed "They didn't teach you much Chi."

Once upon another time I was waiting for the lift at the Taj in Mumbai with my drop-dead beautiful Ozzie girl friend, when five Indian rich types came up behind us and began drooling and making lurid comments about her. I felt this enormous charge begin to grow in my belly. In the lift one of them groped my gf and that charge released all by itself. Suddenly all five of them were sprawled white-faced on the floor when we stepped out. I don't know what happened, but it did.

Once upon another other time I was on Lombok and my shoulder was killing me, nothing helped. Guy I met there said his uncle, a "medicine man" from Sulawesi was visiting and maybe could help. Little man, no taller than 5'2", maybe 60-70, charming, laughing, simple...with a very wise glance. He chewed some root, made some motions and rushing noises while spewing the chewed root on my shoulder, which was immediately better. Gave me a bottle of the rasped root soaked in diesel oil to rub in until all was healed. Yes, it worked.

So I hung out with the little man from the jungles of Sulawesi while he was there, mostly healing and helping relatives and neighbors and friends of neighbors, etc. He didn't say much, always merry, simple and deep. Once we were down by a harbor when a dark looking group of 7-8 men came toward us, didn't look good. The little man glanced at them, snickered "bandits", made a motion in their direction and they all fell down in a pile on the spot. The nephew later told me that on Sulawesi they would have all been dead. The nephew told me many stories of the little man, and after my experience, I doubt nothing.

Chi, little Phoenix2, your aura, your presence, your being, find it and you will need nothing else. Hope this helps.

Re: 4 racist men pick on 5ft.2" oriental woman.

To sum it up: If you are Asian and get annoyed by Swiss skinheads - simply summon your chi for a serious Hadouken... that will teach them.
