Apparently, telling the judge, "I love my children more than I hate Jews," wasn't a ringing endorsement of his suitability as a parent.

The court decided the children needed more lebensraum.

I think that's a German grammar fail by any measure.

"Lassen sie es schmecken" would be "let them [or "you", if formal] taste it" -- although I don't think anyone would talk that way.

  "Lassen sie sich schmecken" would be "let yourself [formal] taste" -- again, I don't think anyone would say that.

But "lassen sie es sich schmecken" is just nonsensical by any measure.

His kids will meet the same fate as the Goebbels children eventually if the court doesn't keep him away from them.

It's more of an idiomatic thing. 'Lassen Sie es sich schmecken' is basically what a waiter would say after serving food to a stranger and in this connotation it's a sarcastic way of saying 'you got what you deserve'.

A lot of common phrases are quite archaic and/or mutilated, but yes, that's a very common phrase. Although subby's usage in this context would be considered a bit odd.

And jeepers, New Jersey Nazis? Is that a thing?

OH.  I take back my comment about grammar fail.  I know this context -- I'd say it translates to "I hope you enjoy how it tastes."

A judge has denied custody to a father who came to court in a Nazi uniform to get back his youngest child.

Either this guy is the dumbest POS alive, or he is BRILLIANT. Just realized that you don't like having kids anymore? BAM...Problem solved.

I wasn't going to nitpick, but...Lassen (to allow) is sorta a tricky verb in German.  I think the correct way to say this (not using a translator) is

"Schmecken sie sich es lassen"

You know, I am a huge fan of free speech.  I do not care how hateful or disgusting your words are, I will fully support your right to say them (so long as they are legal, of course).  But, as much as a love the 1st Amendment I fully believe in self-censorship.  Just because you can say something does not necessarily mean that you should.  For example, if you are a white guy in the middle of a NAACP rally it is probably in your best interest to not use the n-word.  Sure, you have the legal, Constitutionally protected right to use that word, but in all reality you should keep your mouth shut.  And that brings me to this guy.  I love that I live in a country where this guy has the right to fully express his views, even to the point of wearing a German World War II uniform.  But, there is a time and a place for everything, and wearing said uniform to a court hearing on regaining custody of your children is probably not the best time and place.  Yeah, it is great that he so fully believes in his racism that he lives it 24/7, but sometimes it is better to (figuratively speaking) shut your mouth and blend in.

The way to understand this idiom is to remember that something like "Das schmeckt mir gut" means "That tasted good (to me)."

So you've essentially got, "Let this taste [good] to you," or, more loosely translated, "I hope you enjoy."

Like I said earlier, it's an idiomatic thing. Closest translation I can think of would be 'enjoy the taste of ....' or simply 'enjoy' after serving food. It's just a polite phrase that can be used to convey several meanings, dependent on tone of voice and usage. Also of note is that someone using it to insult or mock somebody would rarely use 'Sie' as it is a formal pronoun conveying respect but rather go with 'Du' which is considerably more personal anf far less respectful e.g.: 'Lass es Dir schmecken'.

'Schmecken sie sich es lassen' on the other hand is just gibberish, sorry mate.

2013-07-12 10:28:03 AM  
This is complete BS and I wonder how much their investigation did actually cost in this case as opposed to their other investigations of abuse in the home.  Why is their no other mention of the " previous violence in the home" and I wonder if the "anonymous" abuse claim was also made to local police by someone of color or a Jewish person.  Do they love their children?  Who knows, but they have that right to name them whatever they want.  I am surprised they didn't get the ACLU behind them.

And NO, I am not racist in anyway, I just respect others rights and privacy of others.

I also stated this in a previous thread about meeting them when they used to come into a business I ran.  It was a joke to him, as he was trying to impress our staff of what names he had chosen for the children.  He only had 2 children at this time, and I thought it should be considered child abuse because these kids will be beaten daily because of their names and where they lived, which was a predominately area of diverse ethnicities.

Freedom is a road seldom traveled by the multitude.

Yeah, but there's a fundamental problem here... Most who subscribe to such ideologies can't afford a museum-grade replica or the cost to pay a tailor on their welfare checks...

I know that it's unrelated, but I'm reminded of the scene early in the movie Buffy the Vampire Slayer in the graveyard, when the two idiots are worshiping vampires, and it's commented by the vampires that their worshipers are all morons...

Outdoor labor work is pretty forgiving so long as one's personal issues don't cause problems for the company. I once was acquainted with an ex-con that had been convicted of armed robbery and the only job he could hold was being the parts-stripper in an auto wrecking yard, basically pulling parts off of cars in the 115° heat of the summer out in the sun...

There's been a few threads on these clowns.  Neither of them work.  He and his wife are both on disability, welfare, etc.  They're both high school dropouts, and functionally illiterate.  His last job was as a gas station attendant.

The real Nazis probably would have sterilized these two years ago.

I've read it on some ad/brochure copy, it essentially means "Let it be tasted" or "Find out for yourselves", to use more idiomatic English, in context with the rest of the texts where it appears, like "Lassen Sie es sich schmecken, egal ob im wohligen Ambiente der Paracelsusstube und im Bräustüberl oder im Sommer im lauschigen Biergarten.", which would be roughly "Try it yourselves, either the comforting ambiance of the Paracelsusstube and the bar or in the cozy Biergarten in summer."

Lassen sie - command form Verb, polite form (you should please allow or else)
Es - it (subject)
sich - itself (direct object)
schmecken - taste.

Sir, let it taste itself.
