Most Canadians have no basic understanding of American culture
Most Canadians have no basic understanding of American culture.

Canadians are really a lot like the Europeans. They look at Americans and think of them as wild beasts and savages.

But this is only true about a small minority. Most Americans are actually civilized, although they are religious.

But the problem is that Canadians fail to recognize this. Canadians believe that they are morally superior and that only Socialism is the solution.

Canadians actually have more in common with Latin Americans than with Americans.

Canadians believe that the Tea Party truly represents the American culture. And they base their views of Americans on what the Tea Party says.

Re: Most Canadians have no basic understanding of American culture
Some Canadians (read many), have businesses in the US, real estate, family, have lived near a border and spent copious amounts of time in the us, and have travelled extensively throughout the entire country. In some cases, moreso than American citizens.

The proper statement should indicate that the ones who do not have an understaning of US culture, probably have never been there, or only to limited places, have no interests or family there, and may or may not have English as a first language.it also doesn't help if you get all your info in the US from the idiot box.

Mind you, I will tell you that I personally have wathced it decline in the last 20 years, and have completely liquidated all assets I once had in the country. Maybe once the gestapo and police mentality are gone, I will return to set up shop, but until then it is highly unlikely.


For the record, I do not feel morally superior, and I loathe socialism and I am Canadian.

So a few rule the many with an iron-fist, how brave of them.

Don't forget it is Americans saying they are Canadian when in a foreign land rather than it being the other way around.

Re: Most Canadians have no basic understanding of American culture
Well, You know, it's funny! About 15 yrs ago, my Bro-in-Law and wife drove to South Carolina from Saskatchewan, Canada! He had an Uncle down there that owned a Golf Course! Not gonna mention the place for obvious reasons. They drove by Motorhome; on the Third night there, they had a supper at his Uncle's home; there were other SC persons there, friends of the Uncle! Honest to God! They talked and talked all night after supper; one Carolinian, asked, "how did you come to S.C.? from Canader?
He said, "well, we went by Dogsled to the 49th Parallel, the Border, by Dog Sled; Then, we traded the dog sled etc; for a motorhome at the border in Montana. Then we drove the motorhome to South Carolina, but, we did have problems! We had 5 flat tires; on the way there. The one guy says,
"Holy Molly! The Hiway ain't so rough, why'd you have 5 flat tires? He says the rental place never had anyone driving to South Carolina from there! So the tires weren't changed; and the SC guy said; " Geez! Would have made it faster, if'n you'd had the dogs and some tires! Hahaha!He did not even know where Saskatchewan was on the map! Americans only study their country, not anyone else's for that matter! They have no clue what Canada is about! These dudes thought everything is a FROZEN TUNDRA up here!
They can't believe we have cities, huge populations, gas, food, and not traveling by dog sled! They really think we live in Igloos's! USA does not teach students about anything but their country! That's why they are so "IGNORANT"! They don't even know what the word "TOUQUE" is ! Also, they don't even know who their President is! I rest my case!!
Oh, had a twosome travelling thru Saskatchewan, wanting to go to Alaska!
Wow! On top of their station wagon, they had 10 - 3 gallon Jerry cans for gas! They stopped in Saskatoon, and asked to fill all the Jerry cans cause there was no more gas to buy after that! Hahaha!WTF? Just plain Ignorant!

Re: Most Canadians have no basic understanding of American culture
My father was Canadian and I have plenty of family on the Northern divide to this day. Right now I reside in Colorado.
My question is... WTF is American Culture?
Rap, MSM, plastic gadgets marked up a thousand percent that give you a sense of success even though they were made pennies on the dollar from China?
Does owning an I-Phone, being in debt for a degree from student loans, being in debt driving a plastic car somehow boost your wealth as a human being?
You degree as of this moment is worthless. You cannot find a job. Your I-phone, how does that boost your worth? The debt on the car you own *ahem* LEASE, you will miss a payment and if you are lucky, 2 payments.. Repoed!
So you have shiny objects, name brand clothing marked up in the hundreds but were made in sweat shops pennies on the dollar where the SLAVES shit in a bucket. You purchase these and it makes you a better person?
You listen to Rap/Hip-Hop/Pop/Faux Rock, all censored and fake. No one is actually a musician but they themselves are a product preaching an agenda and yet you call this a culture?

What is culture? Americans today don't have it.
They have gimmicks and products that define them as does most Western Cultures *I say this lightly*.
Want to know culture once again? Talk to your elders. Learn a trade, learn a language, learn YOUR history!
Where do you come from?
FUCKING SHEEP! WAKE UP!
Become goats instead!

Question and see, open your EYES!
You are willing slaves, you clamp the shackles around your own wrists and ankles, no one forces you to do so.
Why are you so scared to question?

Hey -- I'm reading some Anne of Green Gables to my kid these days! My children were able to identify Canada on the map before the US! At least, we Americans TRY not to be ignorant of your Canadian culture (which is much more, might I say...then what I see on this discussion except for the wise OP -- I see all of you Canadians being culturally insensitive to America...). You are using some example and stereotyping all Americans with that. That's PREJUDICE against Americans...it's to be expected. Plus, you never understand American humor.

And on top of that you want to trick us into learning those foreign LANGUAGE (ENGLISH SPOKEN HERE, you know) and into learning history? Do you think your Candianese Side makes you superior and special, above the rest of us stupid Americans? Well, I hate to break the news to you, buddy...We could just as EASILY trick all of your Canadian cousins to become GEESE and then you'd be sorry for obvious reasons!

Lol. I've spent about a third of my life in Canuckland, and when I heard Canadians complaining like this I'd ask THEM a few questions about the States, like what is the capitol of Iowa, and where was it..................and hardly a one could answer any of my questions.


When I took up trucking from the center of Ontario to the States the company I worked for had trouble finding young Canadians who would go into the States, they were all terrified of getting murdered! :)


And so far, to tell you the truth, I've never met a Yankee yet who said Canadians lived in Igloos. If you actually find any that do, blame the Hollywood of the 30's.


I had a good buddy who came up there to teach speed reading so that we could get together now and then and wargame.

After spending half a year or so in Canada and listening to all the whinning about Americans, he coined a phrase I've never forgotten:

"Penis envy on a National Scale".

Re: Most Canadians have no basic understanding of American culture
Sorry if I got too silly in this thread...I found it humorous to think there's this great cultural divide, when mostly I wouldn't be able to tell the difference between many Americans and Canadians, really.

In all honesty, I've liked every Canadian I've met (that I know is Canadian). And, no, we don't learn much about Canada in our schools down here AT ALL...I mean, we don't even learn about Canadian geography, let alone history or government. So, that is Odd, but then again American public schools are all a mechanism to dumb us down, and that's the truth. It's sad. I hope to, one day, be able to take my family on a trip up there to Canada...it is actually a sort of dream of mine. And I DO really think, that L.M.. Montgomery is one of the greatest writers ever, by the way.

No one knows what a "TOUQUE" was; who the PrimeMinister was; what we import/export; what the population was; what was the Capital City of Canada? etc. Oh well, I just know that the USofA is a large country of about 350,000,000 plus people, and that we are all really brothers.
