That's because the world isn't out to get the Kiwis, Ozzies and Brits.
Oh my god! How paranoid can you get?! Or is it conceited?
How much anti-Kiwi sentiment have you run into lately?
See ME watch the Rugby World Cup when the Kiwi's play Wales and you'll have enough for a lifetime. When a country effects you in a negative way, you are liable to have anti-that country entiments. Doh. You're smart, stop knee-jerking and think woman!
How much anti America?
It isn't anti-America (sic), it is;
1/ anti telling a bunch of lies and invading a country using those lies as a justification and then ballsing up the invasion so badly the invaded country is an open sore on the face of the planet.
2/ anti stupid American politicians who, whilst they may not lie MORE than other (non-American) politicians, by benefit of the power they wield, have the most damging lies.
3/ anti stupid American companies raping the Earth's arse who, whilst they may not rape the Earth's arse more frequently than other (non-American) companies, by benefit of their size, do the most damage when they do.
4/ a failure to accept that American's on average are terribly ignorant about the world and are thus likely to make themselves idiots when dealing with the outside world. I've been asked by American students AND teachers (whilst teaching in American schools) "what language do they speak in England"!! Argh!!!!
However, given the above which is all caused by ACTIONS, and the same actions carried out by another country would result in the same reactions, it is not anti-American. It is anti-whatever the harmful/stupid behaviour is.
Apart from a small number of religious idiots who hate Americans as that is that they have been brainwashed to do, most people around the world don't have major issues with particular Americans unless a particular American does something unpleasent to them. The poor level of knowledge about the world Americans frequently demonstrate makes them funny sometimes, but finding American's FUNNY sometimes is NOT anti-American.
To reach that conclusion you must be drunker than most other English men
Oh, poor dear. There's a difference between being catty and PERSONAL and taking the piss out a generic group of people. Well done at bringing it down... your 'sense of humour' is a matched set with Bush's foreign policy.
Nationalism is a serious business, and you'll be hard pressed to find an American who can consistently take the p*ss out of his own country with you, without him eventually getting his feelings hurt by taking it personally. I think it's to do with social conditioning from birth.
Yup, but wait for the denials made by (typically ignorant about the outside world) Americans that they are no more nationalistic than many countries (which typically Americans haven't visited). LOL.
And Jeff, dude, are you so eager to assume the title of this thread meant all Americans? You're too smart to think there are NO stupid Americans... why didn't you assume this thread was about those American's who ARE stupid, rather than a statement that ALL American's are stupid? Oh,hang on... okay... I get it...
