A Minibus Full of Poles

Een bussie vol met Polen (A Minibus Full of Poles)

A Dutch song about the Polish

Re: A Minibus Full of Poles




The singer, Johan Vlemmix, and the Polish people who starred in the video have all received death threats from Poles angered by the song!

Re: A Minibus Full of Poles

Well the dutch aren't known for their tolerance towards foreigners....

Re: A Minibus Full of Poles

The problem is that Dutch, Germans and others get a distorted image of Poles due to the type of Poles who visit these countries. Successful Poles would have no reason to take manual work in another country or sell secondhand scrap cars.

Re: A Minibus Full of Poles

Successful Poles would have no reason to take manual work in another country or sell secondhand scrap cars.

The best of luck to them, they got of their arses and did something. Define Successful??
They are making money, anough to buy a property. Not many people in other European countries actually own their house outright. Selling cars, great. Polish car prices have dropped, there are now much better cars on the roadsthan 10 years ago, second hand' but better. What is wrong with manual work? I hope next time you need a plumber at 3AM he tells you to get stuffed.

Re: A Minibus Full of Poles

My point is that if you visit a city in Poland you don't see the same type of Poles you see in Northern Ireland for example. Most Poles here aren't exactly refined.

It's always the losers who do manual work and sell scrap cars.

Re: A Minibus Full of Poles

Funny song by yet another dope smoking, drug addicted Dutch degenerate

Re: A Minibus Full of Poles

BTW – when I did study abroad back in college in Paris all the Dutch were always the poorest, “bring your own lunch and bottle” types…

Poles are not going to come to work in the Netherlands for much longer anyway. This is all caused by economics…and yes, as Dajwid said above at least they got off their asses and are trying to better their futures. Unlike many others.

Re: A Minibus Full of Poles

I shocked a couple of Dutch on my hols in Austria - I told them I emigrated to have a better life in Poland!!
OK - not entirely true (my wife forced me ...) but the look on their face was priceless!
And my life is actually better in material terms.

Re: A Minibus Full of Poles

It's weird that the Dutch generally have this liberal view on drugs and sex, but, aren't as open when it comes to race. The minibus song could just as easily be German. Same stereotypes.

Re: A Minibus Full of Poles

Something more in the Dutch media about Poles with more than 250 responses from readers. Again it's not positive. Sorry it's in Dutch.
