(I didn’t post this in the BBQ pit, bbecause i didn’t want flames, I wanted dialogue)
I was working on a review for the movie “Hostel” for my website (Dante’s Inferno and all night video store if you want to know) I read some of the comments in the IMDb message board. Again, there seems to be a lot of general hatred and dissin’ of americans.
I figure there are a lot of folks in these boards from all over the world. I just want to know, do you hate Americans and America and if so why? I don’t want flaming statements like “America sucks! Your all Assholes!” if thats how you feel. I just want to know why you would feel that way.
I and most people i know were raised to respect everyone and where they were/are from. I live in Europe and have lived here for some time. I understand that the government has stepped on some toes and made us look pretty bad to most. (I didn’t vote for Bush, but this isn’t about him). I just want to know why anyone would automatically assume that an american is a jackass. Thats like thinking all the french are snobs, all the germans are nazis and all the asians know kung fu to me. Its unfair and prejudicial.
