the death penalty - one of my biggest beefs with america/americans is the fact that you all still have the death penalty in some states. i think it's barbaric in a supposedly civilized country in this day and age. i know all the arguments for and against it but at the end of the day, for me, it's not ok to take a human life like that.
patriotism - while i don't think being proud of your country is a bad thing; i do feel americans seem a bit excessive in extolling the virtues of their "great country". granted they have a lot to be proud of. a lot they should be proud of. but so do a lot of other countries. so when i hear or read about how great america is this and how wonderful they are that ... i can't help but think, 'oh ffs ... get over yourself already'. yes america is a great country but geez ... a bit of humility wouldn't go astray. lol.
ignorance and intolerance - ok a lot of countries suffer from an over-abundance of this one, including my own so you're definitely not alone here. but it's really annoying none the less.
This kind of thing is a pretty good example of an extreme version of the type of American that is generally disliked worldwide.
I HATE YOU. GO BACK TO YOUR GHETTOS. GO BACK TO YOUR MUD HUTS. GO BACK TO YOUR PEASANT SHACKS IN THE SHADOW OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE OR OTHER DEFEATED LANDS WITH POPULATIONS BRED TO SLAVERY. YOU ARE UNFIT TO BREATHE AMERICAN AIR.

how can any country without Burger King, McDonald's or Coca Cola call themselves democratic seems to be the question too many people ask.

Now while I don't hate Americans it does annoy me a little that they have to play different sports to the rest of the world. I mean why? Come on, America. We're having a World Cup here. Why not come and join in? Play with the rest of us.
There's nothing wrong with American Football, Baseball and Nascar, but I feel it just helps to keep America isolated.
Maybe an isolated America is what the world needs right now. We need to get off of the interventionist kick and learn to let the rest of the world deal with their issues without the US sticking it’s nose into everyone else’s business.

But it Sadden's me the Apathy of the American people.
The US could go down as the Greatest Empire to have ever existed , with
the Constitution and Bill of Rights.
Instead they will be remembered as just another Imperialistic Empire
who reached too far , and failed.
