C'mon guys, no need to insult each other. Knowing the Swiss, we can believe it really was a case of...bluntness. Give this hotel another chance.

Calling me an idiot is your opinion. It doesn't change the fact that in this particular case racism is NOT involved, merely a poor choice of words. End of story. Oh, I really like selective responses...wondering whats your view on why does Mr. Netanyahu remain silent on the neo-nazis in the US?
Yea, you might not have noticed the part where I said the manager was probably just a bit stupid rather than malicious. Selective reading much?

Really, the fact is you're not smart enough to debate me. Maybe try these guys:

A lot. Because the chicken should be fried and the melon served as a side.

Jokes, racism, and stereotypes aside:
1) It is a delicious combination.
2) Because of you, I have now a craving for fried chicken. Damn you.
MmmmBwahhahhhahhha! And I have a Kentucky fried chicken just down the road.

Re: Arosa has upset the Jews

I confess, I find the title of this thread as upsetting as I find the story itself. The very idea (a) that there are 'the Jews'. (b) that only 'the Jews' would be upset by any racism/antisemitism involved in the actions of the hotel owner.

So, just for the record, I am not Jewish. I am disturbed by the story. And although a story is spun and may be true that it was never intended to be pointed towards 'the Jew guests', any such impression was purely coincidental, I've seen enough anti-semitism in Europe, including Switzerland, breathtakingly casual in its presentation, that I am not prepared to give the benefit of the doubt. I doubt that Europe has 'moved on' from its anti-semitic past.

Did you really just call someone a nazi because he argues with you? Ok he misread or skipped your statement about the sign but you started to get personal.


I wonder If I would have made the same mistake as that lady in arosa. If I had guests from lets say denmark, norway and sweden and only the swedish guys would go swimming without taking a shower first. My first thought would be to adress the swedish guys directly in order not to upset the other guest who act correctly. So if it's just the jewish guest who break the rule, why not adress them directly?
Of course it's a mistake, but she doesn't deserve all the hate she's receiving.

In the German language you can not "apology" but only admit you did something bad/wrong and ask for forgiveness.
I am not a native speaker (obviously). Whats the difference between an apology and admiting you did something bad/wrong and asking for forgiveness? I am honestly interested

Re: Arosa has upset the Jews

i still ask myself if this is actually news. what basically happened is that one person put up a sign that was very poorly formulated with, most likely, the only intention to keep a swimming pool clean.

is that really world news?

I didn't explicitly call him a Nazi, but if the cap fits. The dog-whistling (a well-known tactic of the far right) is quite obvious with a quote like:

Netanyahu hasn't yet responded to the Neo-Nazi display of power in the US. Makes you wonder.

Don't you love that "makes you wonder..." bit? Or

nobody would like to be in a pool in which a bunch of people in some weird clothes are bathing without taking a shower before that
(talking explicitly about Jewish people who were actually just wearing t-shirts)

So what do you think now? Is he a Nazi because he argued with me or because of what he said?

Re: Arosa has upset the Jews

Had to google doh whistle politics. Surely it does happen.
Here it seems like a rather cheap excuse to get away from an argument....

"nobody would like to be in a pool in which a bunch of people in some weird clothes are bathing without taking a shower before that
(talking explicitly about Jewish people who were actually just wearing t-shirts"

This is a absolute no go, regardless of skin colour, religion sexual preference etc. You just dont do that.

To answer your very suggestive question: He's no nazi at all (at least from what I could read here)

You're actually talking about this in terms of the swimming pool rather than its undertones that Jews are dirty (i.e. the 1930s playbook), aren't you?

Unbelievable. Welcome to the cesspool.

Sure, I read all his posts in this thread again and I am still convinced.
Call me naive but so it is. It still looks like you are making your life too easy, avoiding any self reflection because "those others surely following the 1930s playbook"

Yea, yea. It's down to my self-reflection. It must be my fault (maybe it's an 'alt-left' thing?). Don't worry about it, people were prepared to fight these scumbags before and they'll do it again whether you're up for it or not. Maybe you should get back to making up false equivalences about atheists?
