To what statement did I say what was true? I know you're confused so take your time.
Nope, it's not. It's very easy to condemn the US - on every front.
Remove your blinders.

I do agree with previous posters, though. The most anti-American people in the world tend to be Americans themselves, almost exclusively living abroad. They also seem to suffer from some kind of insecurity, always seeking approval of their new masters. Oh well, to each their own. I don't live everyday in the fear of what people MIGHT think of me as they pass me by, I just don't give a damn. And, Americans, foreigners don't give a damn what they think about us either. They are too busy trying to feed themselves and/or their families to worry about what Americans are doing in the world today. Let the journalists worry about that

People criticize Americans because the DO things, while Europeans just sit back, relax and b.i.t.c.h all the time. So Europe and the "free world" is just a big and fat parasyte that brags about culture and civilization, but that knows deep down that without the American umbrella they would perish in less than five years.

"If you make a favour to a resentful nation, their inhabitants will record your name in the black book of inequity". As to Americans that put down their own country to gain points abroad, they are very insecure persons with an importat inferiority complex.

I recognize that without the US, we would still be riding donkeys and hitting our women with smelly espadrilles.

That is the second most stupid comment on the thread. Owen still holds first by a significant margin. Besides no one puts Spain down more than the Spaniards do and that is your right. But if an outsider has an opinion you can bet your aaa the Spanish will tell that person to **** in no uncertain terms.


What is going on here is that I, for one, am not defending what chielgirl says, for the upteenth time I am defending her right to say it. Sheesh can anyone be that dense? Obviously such a concept does not exist in the minds of many Europeans.

Trust me, Komodo (or any of his other dozen sock puppets) does not represent Europeans in general. I cringe at the thought of people reading his crazy rants and thinking those kind of beliefs are common in Europe. Unfortunately, putting him on ignore doesn't help much because he creates a new account every month or so. Manolon, Cojoncillo, Torquemation, Komodo... all the same person. I think he's trolling us all tbh.

You're absolutely right. I should have my morning coffee before I try to make sense out of his posts. However I don't think he is a troll. Rather I think he has been brought to us by divine intervention to remind us what happens when the inmates try to take over the asylum.

Tom; we get the difference.

I would however point out to you that you could just now have made the same generalized assumptions about a whole continent that started this whole stupid thread with the inane and inaccurate assumption that "it is cool to bash Americans".

The only proof positive to that assumption so far has been anecdotal stories and one rather idiotic Youtube offering that has been shoved up our noses about 8 times, though it has been shown to be the crap it is, just as many times!

It's those generalizations that bite me; starting with the O/P's stupid and assumptive post and then running amok from there.

WHO says it's an accepted fact it's "cool to bash American's"? Proof please; then let's go from there to define who the hell is bashing Americans and the definition of "bash" then move onto proving a case for either. While we're at it perhaps we should qualify whether it's Americans as individual people we're bashing or America as a country.

There's a big difference between "criticizing" and "bashing". Criticizing can be, and often is, constructive while "bashing" never is.

This thread among many others is replete with examples of how the preponderance of "criticism" is coming from Americans themselves with some such as yourself even defending the rights of folks to do so.

Letting the idiots distract us from these points brings us nothing but shame.

BINGO!

I'm the worst at ignoring offerings from the worst segment of posters on these boards. The struggle to ignore one who shall remain nameless and simply give him the recognition he deserves by completely ignoring his posts, is one I have failed at any number of times but we must continue trying to put these cretins in perpsective and assign them a value based on their past performance.

I will make more of an effort at this if folks like yourself continue to pop up occasionally to bring sanity to these inane threads

Nobody is always right! Anyway I still can't believe there are people from the State Dept watching boring shows that nobody watches and justifies these for anti-americanism - they are TV shows lol..

Don't you think it is wrong that the government of the U.S is paying people to watch Canadian drama and at the same time cutting Air Traffic Control Centre's and Border Security?

Another thought, when was the last time a gang of Anti-American Canadians broke into a U.S Embassy or Consolate and attacked staff?

I'm baffled at the lack of perspective amongst elements of your government. This lack of perspective harms Canada/U.S relations more than real or percieved anti-americanism which is at most minorly anecdotal and far from practice (economically, militarily and politically). Even the same cable you are so proud of acknowledged that Canada is as good of a friend the U.S could have - so why aggravate that with gossip, rumours and anecdotal nonsense... tell me.
