Why the hell are U.S. Americans so damn patriotic? Every one I have met is so full of themselves, so rabid about preaching their culture, waving their
Its a hobby.
Really it depends on who you are talking to. Are you honestly saying there are no patriotic people in your country?
right...thought so, now, consider this
Who is louder...the overzealous patriot or the "globalist" whom likes their house, but ultimately is indifferent about the political landscape?
You can talk to one of the overly patriotic types and confuse them easily.
When they scream America is the best, ask them their views on california, new york, liberals, ACLU, etc...you can actually talk for quite awhile about
things that are part of america and have them say they hate it...
Then finally follow up with "with all that hate for your own country, how can you say its the best...
They will get confused (then probably bomb something)...might as well disprove god to them while your at it.
I think they are the most brainwashed people of all! You guys here at ATS should be well aware of media influence in controlling people's perceptions
and attitudes. U.S. Americans are slaves to their nation, and their government. It is sad, and sickening at the same time.
No...come on now...places like north korea and such are horribly brainwashed and pariah level patriots.
I think you may be thinking "lazy". aka, americans often don't know facts and details about other countrys..I blame the school system and their
endless teaching of american history verses world history. when you graduate, you will know far more about the underground railroad and hardly
anything about other nations on earth.
So, you start thinking America has done and invented everything ever...before us, people generally hid in caves.
When you hit university, you learn the world is a bit bigger than the sea to shining sea...however, governments don't pay for advanced education (for
some stupid reason)...so, there is a very large population dealing with high school America is the bestest mindset taught then.
They are simply too lazy to educate themselves further, (no, you don't need a university education to hit the library and learn about other
And why do these sad, sad little people always feel the need to go on and on about how "great" their country is, and how much "better" it
is than any other country in the world? I know this website is based in the U.S.A., but that posts like this are allowed prevalence here just makes me
sad. It is ignorant, offensive, and nothing but a testament to extent of brainwashing that is occurring in that forsaken facade of a culture.
Clearly you judged the thread before reading or considering its context.
Why do people come in and simply assume the intent of the thread? sad brainwashed reactionary responses...sort of like what your judging on
Glass houses and whatnot.
I came to this site to join in discussions on topics of interest to me, and thought I could do this here considering the large userbase reflecting a
myriad of diverse opinions. I did not come here to be insulted, time and time again, by these repulsive U.S. American attitudes of false superiority
over the rest of the world.
You are not actually required to read threads that you dislike the topic of.
Its not like some massive test where you have to weigh in on all topics, regardless of like or interest...pick and choose and you will find your
experience far better.
If I see one more post by a U.S. American insulting other countries yet again, well, ATS will lose this member.
Well hell, now your just tempting people.
If making a thread will make lightweights leave, that sounds like a bonus if anything.
If I feel insulted one more time by a general topic, I am taking my ball and going home.
Come on man, your an Australian...you lot wrestle crocks out of boredom...your a bit stronger than that, aren'tcha?
Perhaps people want this place to be exclusively U.S.? Certainly seems to be the case. I'm not from the U.S.A., and my negative impression of that
nation's people is worsening the longer I spend on this forum. I feel unwelcome here, and my experience on this site has certainly left me with
nothing but a vile aftertaste and a rising hatred.

Sounds like you may need some therapy. a conspiracy website in general invites a lot of opposing debate regardless of the subject.
if you find its personally effecting you...if subjects and debates are having that impact on you...then I would suggest it has little to do with the
topics and probably something to do with the processing.
Sounds like clinical depression more than anything else.
you sad bro?
