Why Americans think that nobody likes them?

And is out to get them.
Do they expect only compliments?
I wonder is that common trait or only PF is lucky to host some oversensitive types?

I don't dislike Americans, but some of them have serious issues. I find their whole artficial and self-glorification culture to be gross.

self-glorification culture

Well, that's how quite a few on PF would characterize Poland... ;-)

But you're right, it is confusing sometimes how many Americans see their nation as "God's own country" and how many are completely ignorant about what's going on in the rest of the world.

I was banned and told it was for a certain behavior...'insulting' people...a behavior Poles and those who hate yanks exhibit every day and are never even questioned by the masses or admins.

The few Americans who actually buy into the manufactured guilt people like Matowy would heap on us by agreeing with the topic of this thread are morons. Most of us don't think that way about our country regardless of what you claim. But if we claim we don't care what others say and that we like our country you just say we are arrogant blah blah...you have a way to turn everything negative. You make false comments about what we think, what we know, our education etc. Truth is you don't know anything about it...you just twist or create things to fit your notion too boost your own suffering egos. I and every American I know do not accept your ******** or your lies :)

So...since you get banned or your posts removed from here even if you are doing the same things others are I am not going to worry about your unequally enforced ********* you idiots who think and post things like this thread...and **** Vincent the admin who power tripped and did the cowardly thing of 'banning' someone so he couldn't respond to the criticism...such a pathetic and transparent thing to do and one I would expect from people so jealous of other cultures.

This forum is censored and biased to allow hatred of the West. Stupid and loaded topics designed to stroke yourselves to inflate the ego of Poles, Slavs, and anyone else who wants to poke their head up and rip on the USA and you are too cowardly to even allow disagreement...you remind me of the little guys who hide behind the big tough guys and mouth off. You are nothing and the only power you can exercise are lame ones like internet moderator "ban" buttons..heh...

So.....move this to Random so you can hide it....ban me again...leave it and argue...have your last words whatever...**** you and your weak characters and egos. No really....**** you :)

You sound like a rowing maniac, I don't know about censored and biased forum but I know that often your only contribution was to bash Poles if that is strength of character you bragging about - you can kiss my ass buster !

You hide behind your country and expect that everyone will bow because you were made in USA. Screw you stupid cvnt!

Topic is Why American think that nobody likes them........or are they really think so ....not personal grievances of the maniacs.

Hoo boy, please stay away from chocolate and coffee for awhile. Iron Balls, you exhibit daily the very traits you yell at us for having.

Maybe a better thread is, "Why So Many Threads About America on the Polish Forums?"

I don't know why Europeans pi.ss their collective pants so much, from an economic standpoint the EU is richer than the US. It's probably easier to live there with all the time off and government goodies you get. (shrugs). Lighten up.

Why Americans think that nobody likes them

well there are a few reasons imo.

1. America has appointed itself the worlds policeman and Americans think that many people in the world don't appreciate all of their hard work.
2. When you grow up in America you are taught that America is #1 and anyone that doesn't believe that must be against America.
3. The mentality is generally one side of the other. dem or repub, either you are with me or you are against me. The middle ground doesn't exist much in the general mentality of the public and therefore if someone is critical of America than it is assumed they are against it or doesn't like it.

4. Because it is true. Many people in the world are feeling that they are tired of America and its oppressive regime and the false confidence of its people. After the WW's people in much of the world loved America and what it stood for but the recent past has erased much of that feeling.

5. The government and media doesn't necessarily represent the people. People are people and most Americans are good people just as people are everywhere. Unfortunately, they tend to be manipulated by the media/govt/big business into supporting unnecessary wars which only benefit the rich class (govt contractors) and get left with the payment to bail out big business.

IMO people don't really hate Americans as much as they think they are generally less educated/cultured and not sufficiently aware of the rest of the world.

nothing really to add to it

ban me again.

is to be expected, lol unfortunately! You disagreed with Poles, expect the worse. It will be another very intensive and short thread. They will jump on us like crazy and after a while of arguing, the admin or one of the mods will shut it down. Same procedure, same people, oh well, lol.

.. and Europeans are not?

When you grow up in America you are taught that America is #1 and anyone that doesn't believe that must be against America.

Ridiculous generalization. You're talking probably 25% of the population. Hardly a plurality. It was kind of hard to swallow after 9/11 a lot of Europeans singing "good, they deserved it"... kind of thing.

1. America has appointed itself the worlds policeman and Americans think that many people in the world don't appreciate all of their hard work.

True but that free security provided has stabilized markets over the years since the end of WWII. Euros no longers are intent on cutting their own throats as much. This banking colapse is our fault (wall street's actually) but a lot of the prosperity over the years and steady growth of the EU and Asia is in part thanks to us.

I remember huge support demonstrations in Germany....
And not only in Germany....quite all over the world the Americans had never so much sympathy from so many people!

Exactly the opposite: right after 9/11 the USA had the sympathy of most Europeans and much of the rest of the world. The negative perception came when the Bushies started the war in Iraq.

You should start it.

Must have missed them from the "Keine Blut fur Oil" rallies.

Well European support sure eroded fast.. ;- ( ... I don't understand your guys love for the Muslims. The same ones who order Jihads on Danish cartoonists? You make fun of us all the time. Do we issue death contracts on your entertainers?

Think about that.

Did you take a look at the pics?
Maybe your Fox news only told you about the "spineless, ungrateful" Europeans?

Most Germans have surely feelings for the muslim immigrants....but "love" isn't it!

Well, maybe because you are a vet and I thought you like military stuff.
And as long as you call me son or boy I'll continue to call you old man :)
I'm 35 you moron, and who is stupid now?:)

Yeah I don't exactly miss sleeping in holes and waking up with frost in my hair. Spider bites, blisters. Having German kids throw firecrackers at me on guard duty , Koreans, Hondurans yell at me as we move through their towns.

You scream when we act. You scream when we dont. Western Europe is a debate club. Action is not an option. (shrugs, farts.)

I have relatives in Kosovo right now serving in the military. Where are you? (Look of disgust.)

Your personal experience clouded your judgment.
Military personnel on the foreign soil is often subjected to angry demonstrators or mob - its politics!
Its doesn't mean that all the world is out to get you!
Myself I'm just concerned about the things are know, so I criticize and ask, its not hate for goodness sake.
But the topic of this thread is for Americans to voice their opinion on the subject.

OK, I'll do my best to stick to the question.

We dont think that entirely. There are recent political campaigns that sought to instill that belief in us through the media. It was used as a kind of "peer pressure" tactic to win a select demographic group to a particular party. Most adults are immune to this tactic but some young people are still suseptible. Females particularly.

We do understand that different cultures, nations, etc, view what we do through different metrics. That doesn't change the necessity of our policy to us.

We realize that the leaders of other countries find it useful to demonize us. When people find displeasure with their own leaders/rulers their leaders quickly blame the U.S. and it seems to buy them time to smooth things over. (We are the monster under the worlds bed you know!) Think Iceland.

In conclusion, Americans for the most part are Individualists. It isn't that important to most if you like us or not. Hell, Its not that important to us if we like each other! America is an individual nation, same applies. We would prefer to get along with everyone, but, thats not realistic is it?

well said dcchris... :)

Americans are awesome people... nice, friendly, helpful, out-going, hard workers... but they also tend to be double-faced and can come across as arrogant, but it's just how they were brought up...

You know what's "funny", when you get hit, you get the sympathy but don't you dare to defend yourself, everyone is turning against you.

There something for you old man:

Ironside I know quite a few youtube videos too. Do you want me to start with it? Believe me, they will beat your by far, lol.

That's a stupid simplification, and one of the reasons the American perspective is so disliked.
