    Post-Anti-Americanism: Growing European Disdain For The U.S.

    Howard Fineman - Newsweek

    ... When you read about America in European newspapers, what you are likely to find is a tone bordering on pity. The U.S. is depicted as a fraying empire of obesity, ignorance, debt, gridlock, stagnation, and mindless war. Sure, the iPad is cool, but it is evidence of what America was, not what it will be again. The stories are not angry, accusatory, or even ideological. It's worse: they are condescendingly elegiac ... America is no longer admired, imitated, or feared. We remain -- for now -- a safe haven for dollars (of which there are too many in the world). But we increasingly are seen less as a model or as an empire than as a cautionary tale of national neglect and decline.

    With apologies to August Bebel, anti-Americanism is the nationalism of fools.

    And suffice it to say that Fineman is a liberal Jew apt to agree with European leftists regarding the US.

    What is interesting, and perhaps amusing, is that Obama is far more popular among Germans than he is white Americans.

    Europeans do tend to romanticize/idealize things before actual thought.
    Whenever it turns sour they feign outrage.
    But instead of admitting to their blunder they blame it on those darned Americans...again, and again, and again, and again...
    Telescopic negrophilism is one such fancy of theirs.
    As long as they don't have to live too close to them then it is perfectly okay to sympathize without ever knowing the real negro.

    Well, looking at our society I can't help wondering whether or not the Bolsheviks actually lost the Cold War after all. This country has become a veritable septic tank.

    And the iPad sucks by the way.

    While America is a moral sewer, we at least have the advantage of not selling sex toys in grocery store checkout lines, unlike our European friends.

    Europe was long ago beyond the pale sexually. Indeed, watching Adolf's and Eva's naked home video made me wonder if it was an early version of a celebrity sex tape.

    its called an economic recession people, not the end of an empire. america and the world have been through far worst. europe isn't any better if not worst. we have found whole entire nations fall bankrupt. it was just a few days ago the US left Iraq. but the future holds either better or worst for the US. once the dubbed "baby-boomer" generation from after WWII become of age to retire (67 i think) more and more social security will be sucked up and taken from the young generations with less people. i feel bad for the future american adults. there only resort is to hope the old die fast, however people are living long and longer (ages 100 in the US are the largest growing age group). lots of bad is now, but there are a lot of goods.

    Give it time. Have you noticed the way commercials are getting more risque in the US. Grocery store checkout aisles will catch up.

    The Jewish media in Germany might make you think so, but I can assure you that this is not necessarily the case. Maybe too soon to get amused?
