Do Other Westerners Really Hate Americans?
I seem to frequently run into articles explaining why Europeans or occasionally other Westernized countries (Australia, NZ, South Afrika, Canada, etc) hate America/Americans,%2

Edit: My post got fucked up and I'm slightly too drunk and tired to fix it so TL;DR version: Whites hate America? True or false? My experience has been good with people from all over (minus middle-easterners who what me dead). America likes to rag on Frenchies, but we don't hate them. Is it true? You hate me for being American or is the talk just talk?

I'm not fond of idiots. I'm less fond of self aggrandizing idiots. America doesn't have a shortage of the latter... but no, I don't hate Americans.

I don't hate any race of people.

NOTE: Member, Tomasia uses this site to slander other individuals. He then later proclaims it a joke, but not in public.
I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

Well,

American politics is certainly very weird. Hot topics for USA seem to be:
Abortion
Guns

Politics seem to be a personal slug fest. A smear campaign, rather than necessarily about real policies.
Public vote for their party leader (we don't do that here), and the candidates within the same party attack each other ferociously.
Voting seems to go on forever, like a year or so. WTH!

American health care is horrifically expensive.

Americans seem to be highly brainwashed into their patriotic stance (pledge allegence to the flag, excitement over the constitution, excitement over movies and heroes with the word "America" in it, seem to need Americans in the star roles, seem to get better CD sales if a band is American e.g. Five finger Death Punch Vs Iron Maiden).

Often Americans get arrogant and assume America is the world. Happens all the time on this forum, posts/threads just assuming that America is the topic or context.

Problem is many countries seem to think of USA as the flag bearer for The West, but in many ways, USA is a very different beast from the West. USA is highly religious, strangely fascinated by guns, weapons and military might. Preoccupied by "rights" and "justice". Many of these things are non events in the rest of the west, but these things are seen as why the West has so many world enemies. We get lumped in with USA.

You're right but do you know why you are right?























Because the issues are complicated and 'murricans prefer simple.

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!

Nah, it's simply more complicated than that. Consider

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

It's not true.

Being American is not the reason why we hate you DL.

Just one of the reasons.
