You cannot choose to be from a country; hence it is pointless being patriotic.

    And the people like you go on about how bad it is, when you are factually incorrect
    It isnt fact that 'Britain is interesting and superior' all you can say is 'there is a lot of things that constitute british culture' as is the case with most cultures.

    What logic? There is no logic in this argument, not concerning you anyways. None of this has been emotional for me, the use of capitals was for emphasis. You're argument has got to be the weakest I've seen, you can't resort to "it's my opinion" when you bring a point and defend it.
    Never said it was fact in the first place, i merely defended my opinion. Now log off and cry somewhere else.

    I never said that British culture was superior so please stop putting words in my mouth. it is just all the "evidence" you have given is incorrect.

    And what I have been telling you are facts. The reason your argument is so weak is because you have no facts to back up the opinion. Kind of stupid when you know there will be people who are going to disagree. So learn from your mistakes, ok.

    It's important to be proud of your nation, your culture and your ethnicity and support it every step of the way. Otherwise, we become divided instead of united.

    How does it feel to be a closet racist?
    Pretty good actually.

    How does it feel to be such an unappreciative prick towards a country that's blessed you with a wealth of opportunity?

    My opinion is that britain is boring and bland to which people like you have said 'there's a lot of culture', which may be the case but doesnt mean Britain is factually interesting.

    The only way you could have countered my 'argument' (as you put it) is to say it is interesting which is also your own opinion. I made no mistake, you're just fundamentally wrong.

    No, your quote was

    who gives a **** anymore, patriotism and nationalism is dead

    That was a general statement, not just the youth, or you should learn to express yourself

    I don't care about whether you think British culture is boring or interesting; you generalised its culture to racism and colonisation, remember? You brought nothing to back that up. What I said in return was facts. Go back and read it.

    LOOOL you're too funny mate. If you cant find anything of what i said was racist then dont accuse me of it you moron.
    dont talk about Islam, i criticise islam as much as I tell people to not incite hatred.

    It's ironic that you say you don't incite hatred, but call everybody moron.

    That's like saying you can not choose your parents, so you may as well not be fond of them or having their interest in heart.
