    I think America is Germanic and all of it should be preserved. But if it came down to preserving a European Germanic country such as Germany; and losing America as a Germanic colonial settlement than Germany is more important. Our Germanic homelands in Europe IMO will always be more important than our conquered settlements.

    And if you lose America, who do you think will receive millions of American refugees? Germany? eyes: Germany isn't your homelands, your ancestors decide to leave it for the life elsewhere, for more religious rights or better life or whatever, ours stayed here and endured the persecutions or hunger. Americans are foreigners to Germany and its people, they fought against Germany and bombed and killed our people in two world wars. They have no right to demand that we provide any kind of services to them. Not to mention it's already crowded here. We have no room for millions of American mouths to feed.

    I don't believe so. America is as valuable as Germany. Our forefathers fought for us to be able to live a prosperous life in this country. Our ancestors dwelled here. This anti-American attitude will kill our country one day. More anti-Americans are born and bred inside our borders than in Europe. I also believe Ossi has a point. Where would we Americans go if we lost our country? I believe Germany is about the size of Texas. No European country has the obligation to provide us asylum and refugee camps.

    The American self denial of some people is saddening. I'm sorry, I can't respect the opinions of American people who don't respect their own nation and deny its importance in favor of some dreams about Europe.

    What about all the other wars prior? Does every German citizen get a background check to make sure their ancestors were not on the wrong side of the 30 Years war, the Silesian wars, or the Napoleonic wars?

    Unlikely to happen. Extremely few Germanics in the US need be on state support

But San Diego, Los Angeles, El Paso, New York City, Sidney, New Christ, Montreal, Vancouver and so on are not within the core Germanic countries. The core is where we all are from. It is the very environment to which we are all best adapted. Our fundamental history is there.

    We can all lose a finger and ear or even an eye but we cannot bear to lose a liver, a brain, or a heart. This is the relationship of San Diego to Rotterdam. Believe me, I don't want to lose a finger and will fight like hell to prevent it but it is not the same as losing a heart.
    Agreed. No doubt San Diego is worth saving, but Rotterdam lies in a region that has been Germanic for ages. Losing Rotterdam is of far greater strategic and symbolic significance than losing San Diego.

    It's like comparing apples & oranges. To a Dutchman Rotterdam would be more important, San Diego would be worth more to an American, except the self-hating kind. Permanently conceding either city would be a tragedy.

    What are you trying to prove with this, OEN? :
    It's simply an opportunity to try & create drama by resurrecting the European vs Colonial divisions. And it's no coincidence he started this thread while I'm in San Diego.

    What would be representative of a Germanic city in America? The US is a large country with a large degree of climatic & historical diversity among the different regions. San Diego & Los Angeles use to be considered among the most all-American cities in the US. When they became American at the end of the Mexican-American War, they were basically just small Catholic missions.They were peopled by native-born Americans of native-born parents of Anglo-Germanic stock from the Midwest, the only thing Hispanic about them being their names. It was after WWII that White ethnics from the Northeast started moving to Los Angeles & in the late sixties the illegal alien invasion from the south started.

    Who are you to say which American communities should be afforded respect as Germanic cities. San Diego is still more Anglo-Germanic then the English founded Philadelphia or Dutch founded New York.

    I think both are equally important. We shouldn't just write off living space in North America. But Europe is the homeland of our ancestors & the psychological effect of losing Europe would be devasting to preservationalists.

    Don't worry, most of us don't want to go to Europe. Those of us of Colonial era stock are like the Afrikaners in South Africa who refuse to leave no matter how bad things get. WE don't want your assistance, we only ask that you not give our enemies moral or material support.

    Agreed. America is my ancestoral land. Though the majority of my ancestors were living in Britain 30O-400 years ago & I feel a kinship with the English, Scots, Australians etc... America is where myself & my family belong. I find it offensive when people do not differentiate between the US government & the American people or they advocating partition or abandoning parts of the US.

    Please stop insulting the history and heritage of our country. As you can see here, the USA is considered a Germanic country officially by the Althing. I am a proud American and I care about the future of San Diego just as I care about the future of Rotterdam. Your European supremacy agenda is divisive and destructive to the goals of this forum.

    A wager with another member on a hypothetical opinion split amongst members:

    And it's no coincidence he started this thread while I'm in San Diego.
    I had no idea whether or where you were on holiday. A city with a Spanish name and dubious Germanic grounding was sought.

    Could have been any other fine Germanic burg such as El Paso, San Jose.....
