Re: This video is in a nutshell, why people do not like Americans.
Are most of you like this?
Very interesting.
I don't think i would like to ever travel to USA or meet with Americans.
You are very odd
Why would you want to do what this idiot is doing?

Many rednecks are boisterous show offs. But they would give you the shirt off their back and show up with a truck full of guns if you were ever in trouble. Good people overall.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1427584


Oh, i get it. So as well as acting like idiots you are idiots loading up truck full of guns and acting like rambos?

I have seen films made in USA but never knew you were actually the same in real life.
Truck full of guns? Amazing.
No wonder thay all talk about how backward you all are
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 276706


Oh shut the fuck up limey. Violent crime does happen and I am merely making the point that many guys like this would have your back in a life or death situation. More than I can say for you and your vagina.

Re: This video is in a nutshell, why people do not like Americans.
so you dont like us because you dont understand us?

thats pretty much what i figured.. ignorance is usually the cause of all bigotry.

from what ive noticed, most haters in other countries dont understand the size and variety of our country, they tend to generalize people.. i wouldnt assume all french are the same, or that all germans are the same... but the french and the germans have a more detailed and nuanced "national identity" than americans.. because americans have only a very vague and broad national identity but very detailed and nuanced "STATE identity" and these identities are apparently unknown by the rest of the world..

it would be like assuming europe was all the same, the middle east was all the same(haha americans do this too much), all of africa was the same(this too, im sure were not alone)..

we also have "REGIONAL identities".. i think most people are aware of them... the south, the north, the west, the midwest... do you know about the bible belt? the ozarks? the appalachia? the sierra? pacific northwest? the upper midwest? which are the "wild" states? which are the "dumb" states? which are the "boring" states? which are the "arrogant self-important" states? which are the "racist" states? where do the queers live? where do the hippies live? where do the rednecks live? where do the hillbillies live? where do the mobsters live? where do the mormons live? where do the cowboys live? where do the indians live?

this guy is one in a million.. and its OBVIOUS this is just regular fun guy playing a crazy stupid joke on the internet.. he wanted to entertain.. he wanted to be a jackass.. he might have wanted to get on tosh.0 for all i know.

but i can tell id rather get to know a guy like him, than someone like you.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1448564


Chill out dude. For what it's worth, I've been to the states several times, I'm fully aware of the nuances at "Regional" level. I am also aware that the majority of Americans, whilst lovely people, seem to be auditioning for an imaginary film role. It's like walking through a Truman Show set. But therein lies the real question, maybe it is. I believe it was Shakespeare who said something alomg the lines of the world being a stage and all of us actors. Who knows, maybe you yanks are ahead of the game.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1245590



caricature yes i feel the same.

about regional identities, we know a bit more than you think but all about the usa outside is always and only the reflexion of the worst part of your country.

i mean for me LA, las vegas and NY fucked mentalities are not the real ppl and not the best you can share about yourselves to the world.

i'm impress when i see pictures of a real part of america and real ppl talking, your entertainment is such a bad press for you except some good persons (for ex you can be really proud about clint eastwood's movies, they are realistic and interesting much more than all the shit from the not so holly wood nightmare and the shitty tv).

violence, weapons and the fact you'll have death sentence is a big moral problem too.

racism, too much bad freedom and the opposite at the same time, the lack of education about the world are difficult to understand since the country is big and full of different ppl too.

the cult of money, the insane pride, the superficiality and the massive ego are impossible to understand IMO

in fact it's like looking a young angry kid trying to impress adults but showing no respect in the worst manner you can imagine.

europe is not perfect but we know for sure the future need to be better for all of us, our governments are sometimes right sometimes wrong but we try to be responsible for our mistakes starting by the ppl because we vote and it's our duty to not forget the easy way is always an error and an illusion.

our elites are most of the time crazy but still try and we are concerned about it.
walk into a bar and you will see ppl are talking politics and all always because even if we don't know all, even if we don't understand it all, we feel concerned and we don't want to give our voices to the first stupid bastard jumping on the scene yeahsure

usa is only looking for her belly, no reconsideration, ppl are just waiting for maybe a miracle and it's a bit sad.

an example, i don't understand why you still believe socialism (the real one not liberalism/capitalism with a tiny part of social evolution inside) is bad? same about communism (not the one from lenin or stalin)? and what's the real problem with ecology?

don't you think the ppl from the usa deserse much more than what you have now?

when americans are coming in france, they are so in chocked we do not pay for health (the society paid and all is used for everybody), we have time to spend with our families (3 months for vacation), work and money is not what ppl here are the most proud of (education, friendship, family are more important) etc

about france, some parts of this country are really amazing and the ppl are so great in their hearts but i'm sure some parts of the usa are the same and they don't show themselves enough for the sake of the entire country afro
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1276837


wow, you dont understand one BIG thing about america.. the most important thing of all.

you dont realize the american people have no real control over their govt, their media, nothing that you believe represents us.. nothing.. you mention clint eastwood.. he is one very lucky man that made it very rich, and managed to make his own glorious works of art his own way.. everyone else must live and exist in a sick twisted version of Disneyland.. its the "american dream" from our 1950s.. a dream that is shoved down our throats every single day.. its a constant indoctrinating propaganda from hell.. and soooo many people have never woken up to that realization.. soooo many people..

your countries have them too.. but theyre not so bad.. they dont have to keep control of so many different people all together all at once... you will find out.. you have your EU now... we didnt have our FED at first.. we were all separate states.. thats where those identities i talked about came from.. people were proud to be from where they were because where they where was SOMEWHERE... now its ALL AMERICA..

do you wonder why the Chinese dont just vote their leaders out of office? do you think North Koreans all love their leaders? lol

dont believe whats easy, what is given to you.. we would show you our greatness if we were allowed to be better than the rest...

did you know all our presidents were related, except one?
including Obama.
did you know we dont really vote for the president?
we have people who decide our minds for us. because they know whats best. thats how we got Bush the first time.
the popular vote.. its just for fun.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1448564


the american dream was a lie from the head to the toe, it's very sad and twisted.

EU is not a bad thing, old countries have their own failures but we are not closing the door to the youth from the rest of europe or we will simply eat the dust (or our gold lol) without young ppl working it's not possible to run a country indeed or the entire system must change and it's probably what's happening little by little...

no i don't think chinese or koreans loved it all but they are growing and nobody can ignore them now, india is the same and south america and africa will be too.


what do you mean by this? did you know we dont really vote for the president?

are you telling me the ppl have already lost their faith for changes and a better life?

Re: This video is in a nutshell, why people do not like Americans.
I think deep down all of these people from other countries love us.

If that guy tried it in Europe he would be put in an insane asylum because in Europe you aren't allowed to be yourself.
You must conform.

What that guy did was fucking hilarious and for anybody to use it as a reason to not like Americans is stupid.

We need more people like the guy in video to assure ourselves of our own sanity.

Not exactly. I don`t like them because of their love for Big Brother and "His" methods.
Of course there are exceptions, but too many are actively supporting the NWO.

Clint Eastwood movies realistic??? Really, which ones??

Funny in the next paragraph you reference "violence, weapons...is a big moral problem too." Which pretty much sums up Clint Eastwood movies. ???

"the lack of education about the world are difficult to understand since the country is big and full of different ppl too" Seriously, most people in U.S. come from other parts of the world. I'm sure they understand there "mother" Country.
Europeans should consider Americans traveling to other states in the U.S must travel further than most Europeans traveling between Countries.

"the cult of money, the insane pride, the superficiality and the massive ego are impossible to understand IMO"
You may be watching too much TV. Most Americans work hard, love their families, help their kids with homework, feed their pets, wash their clothes etc.

"we feel concerned and we don't want to give our voices to the first stupid bastard jumping on the scene" Well, you guys have elected your fair share of bad politicians.

"is bad? same about communism (not the one from lenin or stalin)? and what's the real problem with ecology?"

This one had me shaking my head, Communism? Which communist country do you prefer?? Ecology, haven't spent much time in the NW U.S have you? The Greens easily outnumber entire European Countries populations.

I have nothing against France. Just the opposite, without France we might still be under English rule. I also envy your health care and long vacations, etc.
Just some of these things you've said about us over here doesn't make much sense to me.rose

Re: This video is in a nutshell, why people do not like Americans.
Truthfully, I think most people of the world don't realize just how large and sprawling is the U.S. Most of our states are as large as most countries. Really all the world has to go by is how we're depicted in media, much how we too are aware of the rest of the world. Those who watch CNN, for instance only see one aspect of our people, FOX shows another. Television is a wide reaching parody of reality I liken to a John Carpenter movie, where everything seems like real life, but maybe in a dimension just next door. I've fallen into much the same trap by holding on to a needling fear that TPTB use media to prepare or predispose peoples assumptions of reality. For instance, after watching the movie, "Hos tle", I was like, 'Well crap. Now I'll never see Prague.", though I truly hope Eastern Europe isn't just a festering pit of evil just waiting to spirit my fat ass off to a run down building for torturous entertainment.
I wish I had more time so I could do even less.

I see ingenuity in this video. I like it. Think outside the box and be willing to take a chance. Leave conformity to the Eurotrash. You see where that got them. Hundreds of years of rich culture flushed down the toilet for the sake of politcal correctness.
