    I've heard many different theories, including Wisconsin Germans disparaged Poles as dumb, Poles were called as dumb, because they were good machinists, and people got jealous, to Hollywood, and the media promoting it.
    to Nazi Germany promoting dumb Polak jokes.

    One thing is true, I don't think such politically correct joke would be so for Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Muslims etc. etc.

    Just look at how Papa John was treated for just saying the N word, not disparagingly, but just as a word that could not be said.
    (Hardly offensive)
    Especially in comparison to dumb Polak jokes.

    It seems people think dumb Polak jokes are okay, because they're White Catholics.

    Even though Poles were also murdered by multiple millions, in WW2, WW1, The Partitions of Poland, and the Deluge combined totals could really support that 8 + million Poles had been killed.

    But, that doesn't matter, so long as they're getting back at Whitey oppressor, by lashing out at Polish people.

    Attacking armored columns with cavalry didn't help their cause.

    What about the fact that's neglected, that 80% of the Nazi German army was Horse drawn?

    Nazis also had Horse units a-plenty.

    But, Poland's "Western Allies" seem to love using anti-Polish propaganda created by Nazis.

    The Poles were the ones who got hosed the worst from WWII....Conquered and split up by the Nazis and commies, then taken over wholesale by Stalin in the end.

    BTW, the French tell Belgian jokes, are they racists too?

    Who cares if they make sense or not?

    There were 25 million ethnic Poles in Poland in 1939, Nazis had about 85 million ethnic Germans between Germany, and Austria in 1939, and Soviets had control over 160 million in 1939, and vast tracts of resources.

    Why is it surprising that much smaller Polish minority surrounded by hostile enemies, would have not performed well in WW2?

    It's not surprising at all...But in the end, their alleged "allies" sold them down the river to Stalin....By far, Poland was the biggest loser of WWII.

    Poland lasted closer to France in time in WW2, than to the Netherlands who just lasted 4 days.

    Even though Poland's population size was intermediate between the two, and even though Poland was put into a 3 front war, unlike France, and the Netherlands.

    Also, Poland's military funding, was more like the Netherlands, than like France.

    Even so, it took more bullets to take out Poland by Nazis, than France.

    Keep in mind France had help by Britain too, and didn't have Soviets also invade.

    Soviet Russians, German Nazis, Holocaust Jews, and Ukrainian Soviets lost more population in WW2 than Poles did.
