Today I was walking home from school, minding my own business, when I saw this homeless guy walking a distance away from me. He was carrying a bag of a local supermarket, and muttering to himself. I thought nothing of it, and was minding my own business.

As I came closer, I was able to hear what exactly he was muttering about. He was saying things along the lines of "Fascist American pigs" and stuff, then "Kill them all. Kill all Americans. Take the UFOs, and burn the whole country. And for Americans abroud, kill them as well. Kill the children, the women, the men. With their fucking Coca Cola, the fucking McDonalds. They have ruined our world, all of our lives. Do you want your children to live in fear? Do you want them to have to take fire-arms to school to protect themselves? Kill all Americans.."

I naturally hastened my pace and was soon too far away to hear any of what he said.
I myself am of Hispanic American decent, and though I have been living in Germany for most of my life, I still find it very unsettling that the USA is so hated, and that uneducated people only see the negative sides of the US on the news, and think that America is the biggest evil on Earth nowadays.


Any thoughts? Similar experiences with Anti-Americanism?

I love the way he could hate anything about America, and he picks Coca-Cola and UFO's. Idiot.

I have no problem with the USA personally. The guy is a drunken idiot.

Good point raised. Blair is (was) Bush's little puppet. I dislike both Bush and Blair for obvious reasons. I don't hate America, I hate George Bush.

I'm not sure. They probably do. But I would assume mainly because our gov't was waiting for an excuse to invade a country for oil. When 9/11 happened, the Bush administration jumped for the oppurtunity.

Gore won the popular vote, Bush won the electoral vote.

America becomes hated when republicans are ''in charge''.
They always start a war.
That sucks.
They only care about money.
When there was Bill Clinton, everyone liked America more.

2. You're browsing through the UG forums.
3. You're reading now.
5. You didn't notice that there was no #4.

you can point out America on a map right?

and so could (lets just say) alot of Germany too, eh?

a good majority of American High Schoolers would be hard pressed to find Germany on a map.. (waits for high skool aged 'merican UGers to bitch)


and its a well known fact that americas voter turnout hasnt topped over 50% since the 60s.

well, for one thing America is kinda bigger than germany... let's say, ask an average German student to point out Texas (roughly the size of Germany).

It's the same here in sweden. The retards only see the religious people and schoolshootings on the news and think all 300 million americans are like that.

It's very ironic that whenever someone of american heritage make a broad generalization of a european country and everyone goes like "lol all amricans don know ne thing abut europ".

Generalizations is one of my pet peeves...

Basically, Bush invaded Iraq for the benefit of his friends in the oil companies, with the intention that once we're in control overseas, we'll decide how expensive Iraq's oil is, we'll make it cheap, and we'll buy it all.

It's not about reducing oil prices for the benefit of the American public. It's about reducing initial oil prices so big business can make a huge profit.

Please, allow me to bitch. I'm of high school age, and I can point out quite a few countries on a European map

Also, one of the reasons so few Americans of voting age vote in elections is the idea that one vote won't make a difference. Which, quite honestly, with our current electoral system, it won't. Which is why I think election through popular vote should be instated. The system we have now is based on tradition, and incredibly outdated; and thus, should be made obsolete.

Im sure there are Americans who would be hard pressed to find/label most states (not Texas, Cali, Alaska, or Hawaii, or Florida)


and i dont think size has anything to do with it...

Chinas fvckin huge... and i know my little sister (whos 16) couldnt point it out at all... where as my lil bro (19), myself, and my older sis (24) could all point it out with ease.. and my older sis is just as dumb as my younger one.. its the skools that have changed!

I totally agree. Everyone thinks that Scottish people get drunk on Tennants lager and goes home to hit their depressed wife, whilst only 83% of the popluation are like this. The 17% are complete gentlemen.
