Why Americans think that nobody likes them?

Actually Americans thınk that they are quite likeable and that everyone likes their products.
Americans believe in mass production and smoothening of cultural differences of people to low level in order to achieve it.
When they believe stereotypes,it is because they think economically.It has no meaning for them to take minority variations into account because it is counterproductive in mass production climax.

For example it is more beneficial economically to make a drink most people will like(coca cola) or eat(hamburgers) than to make a drink most people will not like(like it happens in Europe) and appeal to special audiences.That is why they are interested in mainstream opinion and public view because it is the most economically significant where they can focus their time.

That is probably the most ignorant stereotype / generalization I have read so far, though I'm sure there are worse. It just shows how very little you actually know.

1. The Russian.....threat

That's bs, Russia is more a threat to Europe than it is the US. As an American I do not fear this bear.

Here's mine

1. The Russian..... Got drunk and died in a fiery auto accident
2. Poles are... In a hurry to destroy their culture for no real benefit
3. prettiest actress... Sandra Bullock (sigh)
4. When you're thirsty you drink... water
5. The most popular sport in the world.. disliking Americans/criticizing the U.S.
6. Most wanted and dangerous man on Earth.. Me, on the dance floor.

Hmmm...

1. The Russian..... Since the early 90's.. Surprisingly entertaining.
2. Poles are... Pretty cool.. most of the time. Just don't bring up: Jews, Russians, Germans.. and probably Americans.( Not necessarily in that order.)
3. prettiest actress... Dolly Parton (the early years)
4. When you're thirsty you drink... anything fermented.. with the possible exception of Old English Malt Liquor Beer. I can't confirm this but it probably tastes the same going out.

5. The most popular sport in the world.. Screwing?
6. Most wanted and dangerous man on Earth.. Anyone having just eaten a Mexican dinner standing near any kind of flame.

Absolutely not.. should have been given the Oscar for 9 to 5 alone.

Most Americans would say energy drink or coca cola. A handful would say Gatorade.
Lol, Pinchy Pete, Dolly Pardon didn't even act in 9 to 5! It was a continuation of her stage persona she does all the time in interviews and in public. Not much of a challenge for her. Was it? Now why does she deserve an Oscar for that?

Some guys and gall who are American or claim to be ....and my question were constantly seen as a attack or something hostile?! And exchange of insults ensued:)

actress

The Best American actress - Betty Davis :)

Actually

Actually as my thread has shown Americans are of the opinion that nobody likes them as a nation - because they are the best country in the world and rich and powerful :)

Whatever it is true or not is for other thread to answer.

Why Americans think that nobody likes them?

--- Perhaps because hard facts indicate to them that nobody likes them?
In the tens of countries I visited in the past America and Americans were perceived negatively.(I remember that Canadians travelling abroad used to wear little Canadian flags on outer clothes to show they weren't Americans.) Only in Poland the view of Americans was positive. But that was a few years back; today the Poles don't seem to be pro-American any longer.

These eurotrash as I call them, are simply jealous of Americans. The same disease is also spreading here in Australia. Thankfully we are not as bad as these europeans.
