    Euro AntiAmericanism

    Hey! I aspire to being a "Fat, Ignorant, Lazy and Worthless" Coupon Cllipper living off the labors of others and the fat of the land. Let the rest of the World live on and in its fantasy. We know the truth and the truth shall set us free.

    Well Hateing American Liberalism is not a bad thing.
    Such as the Marxist Trash that create the Media.

    But in due respect Europeans have plenty of their own Marxist to hate as well.

    As someone who has been in a relationship with a girl born-and-raised in Germany and visited her family and friends in Germany a number of times, I can vouch for this statement.

    Furthermore, based on my experiences, I can say that Germans are probably amongst the least likely people in Europe to accept the idea that someone of a foreign race can become a true part of their nation just by being born and raised in it. As strange as it sounds, this even applies to a certain extent to Germans who claim to be anti-racist. It seems that "blood" still carries a far deeper meaning in Germany than it does elsewhere in the so-called "Western" world.

    ^ Well what you see on TV might not be American culture. Most things on TV are not real, even the so called 'reality' shows.

    That is the unfortunate thing about TV as it is a very bad way to view American culture. Really how many of us know Americans that live their lives like the people on TV do?

    I do recognise that their are some people who try and live their lives that way, but that must be a shallow and empty life.

    Yeah! I agree with SpearBrave on that one.
    It is NOT American Culture, it is Liberal POP Culture, which is mostly crap dreamed up by East Cost and West Coast Liberals, who are predominately Jews.

    They have little to do with Heartland America.

    I see that most of these "americanized" young adults of my country are attracted to the stereotypes. The men want to be wall-street dwellers, the women want to live like 'Sex and the city' or 'The devil wears prada'.
    A completely new paradigm is installed in their brains. It's poisonous.

    Yes, I do agree that it is very poisonous, but it is not real American culture.

    I have met many Europeans that think what they see on TV is what America is like. As I stated earlier I don't see many people living the way people on TV do. Truly it is shame that people in other countries base their views of America on American TV.

    Since I don't watch TV, I'm not up on the current shows. The last time I have watched any shows on TV was 2008 even then it was not much. I wish more Americans watched less TV and used their brains to think, but I might be dreaming.

    I wonder how these young people over there would feel if they found out the style they imitating is fictional. :o

    I also do not agree SpearBrave. It is Western trash culture, not American. You see much of it also in the savage regions of South America where up to 40% of the youth are unemployed. It is a culture of despair mixed with drugs and casual sex. They have forgotten (or never had) the legacy of hard work, honesty, idealism that created Western Civilization.

    To carry forth business in the kind of way that enables national greatness requires a good degree of honesty and trust. It is no surprise that Anglo countries score among the least corrupt in the world (in contrast to underachieving Eastern Europeans), and as Henry Ford observed, unlike Jews, Anglos do have business ethics. Indeed, the fact that Jews, unlike Anglos, have frequently incurred persecution related to business matters has much to do with this distinction.
