Meandering thoughts of a Bay Area college student… be prepared for some bipolar vocabulary

Fucking Americans: Why the USA will soon fall into ruin.

This isn’t about that. It’s just an experiment I’m doing to see if the post will become popular. And if it does…

Why were you attracted to this post? Did you come to argue and call me an America-hater? Haha, that’s too bad because I’m really not one. Did you come here expecting to read a long-winded rant about how Americans are fat, greedy, ignorant, Christian fundamentalist, and self-involved? You’re in for a rough surprise.

What’s the deal with anti-American sentiments or Americanophobia anyways? Actually, anti-American sentiments are understandable because it seems more involved with the U.S. government and foreign policy rather than Americanophobia, which is aimed at everything that is American, especially its citizenry, like you (probably) and me. So scratch that. I’m not one to say that my country is absolutely perfect and godly. But we do some pretty good stuff, too.

What’s the deal with Americanophobia anyways? Are we all fat, greedy, ignorant, Christian fundamentalist, and self-involved? Because if so, than the rest of the world must have the perfect bodies, all educated and literate, are all exceedingly generous, are all NOT Christian fundamentalists,  and are all aware of everything that goes on in the world and probably with an unbiased view.

Furthermore, why is it culturally acceptable to dump on us Americans? Let’s play with this sentence.

American French people are fat, ignorant, Christian fundamentalist, and self involved. Oh wait, that won’t work because it’s probably racist. Why the double standards?

Don’t you just hate how American culture is spreading outside of its borders? Seriously, McDonald’s all over the world, Starbucks everywhere, and I even saw a KFC in a mall located in Saigon/HCM city, Vietnam. Those damn Americans are trying to force their culture upon us! And their fucking television is beyond retarded. But alright, do we do the same thing when we see a French restaurant open up in San Francisco? Those damn French people! But we don’t have to eat there.

Plus you know how Americans are greedy, yes? We wouldn’t be selling McDonald’s and Starbucks abroad if it wasn’t profitable. That means that you guys actually enjoy American hamburgers and our hideous excuse for coffee. This is using your logic. Although I might tend to agree with you guys about American television. But still!

Do you see the hypocrisy?

If you think about it, the United States has one of the least homogeneous populations in the world. People from all over the world from six continents have U.S. citizenship. I guarantee that if you’re dissing on Americans, you’re also dissing your fellow countrymen.

Have a good day.

…I think I just trolled hella people with this post. Hahaha.

    Shizzzz, I’m so sleepy but I just want to say something.

    You know when people diss Americans they are generally aimed at fat, ignorant, Christian fundamentalist WHITE people? Or black, black people fit into the picture of Amurica. Us yellow and brown and red people are in the gray area. Are we even considered Americans to other people?

    Since you’re going to bring up it being culturally acceptable to dump on other people, why is it cool to have coward jokes about the French? Dumb blonde jokes? Drunk jokes about the Irish? Grape drink jokes for blacks? I’m pretty sure not all French are cowards, all blondes are dumb and so forth.

    Also, people have no problem dissing people of their own blood. We hella do it all the time (Nam?).

    I guess you did troll me though hahahaha xD

    But that’s one of the problems I think. People don’t realize or they ignore the rest of us. Probably because it’s convenient. They assume that we’re ALL the same.

    And there are jokes. Then there’s pure animosity. I don’t know, I found a BBC article from 2006 where an American was beaten in the UK for being an American. If you want it, here:http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/4881474.stm

    And I don’t know if it’s true or not or even related, but I think we haven’t been dissing Nam as much as in the past.
