    I hate every single thing about Germany. The fact that we allowed them to have their country back immediately after the war astounds me more than anything, considering the ****ing huns started two world wars. How can a nation be so blind to the evil that was in Hitler's regime. The army let itself be run over into mass killing squads. Would that have ever happened in this country, not a ****ing chance!
    There language is also the most barbaric on earth, it is absolutely disgusting to hear them speak. This sounds like racism I know, but we hate Germans and they hate us. The difference is, we beat them twice.

    come on, as you said this is blatant racism and i think you are generalising your opinions far too much.

    perhaps a less radical opinion?

    You clearly know very little about Germany and as a result you're talking utter nonsense (now goes and asks her mother how to swear in German )

    The people of that country sat back as six million people were executed. The army partook in that when clearly they could have completed a military cou. As they say if the government loses the army then there is no government.

    Fair enough I went a bit far, lol probably got caught up in the moment. Sorry. Just don't particularly like them, that is blatant generalisation I know. Did you know that ex SA soldiers get a state pension and military pernsion in Germany? Farce.

    If i filled you with propaganda for years and your economy was non-existent you would do what you were told too if I said i could get you a better life.

    You can't blame the Germans for feeling intimdated when the war-issue is brought up. They have been unfairly generalised and associated with the Nazis. It were the Nazis who did all the bad stuff, not the Germans. The majority of Nazis back then were German but it would be unfair to generalise all Germans as Nazis. Anyways, it was over 50 years ago anyways and Germans today are different to what they were back then (I'm probably generalising here myself! Lol). I would love to learn German one day.

    I could give you all a history lesson but it would take so long, most of the elements on the above posts are quite right, however it's hard to say if propaganda was in fact effective, in most places in Germany the overt propaganda didn't appear to be working but that's also not to say the German people knew what was occuring and that they did not make a stand against it.

    I was chatting to some people at work today and i was shocked at the negative way which they talked about germans. I am studying alevel german, and hoping to do german as part of my degree next year, i have visited germany on 3 occasions and have found the germans to be really nice.

    Can it be that some people still havent got over the war? Or that their parents indoctrinated them to think germans were bad? It seems that germans, out of all countires, get the most stick from the Brits.

    At my school only 3 people took alevel german when i did, and the following year nobody took it as an AS level, ive heard the same story from many other schools.

    Why do people hate germans?
    yeah i agree, German's get bad press... so what if they nick all the sunbeds and the womenfolk haven't discovered immac? They gave us NUTELLA and KINDER-EGGS for crying out loud... cut them some slack!!!

    Same here, but not nice white fluffy kingsmill, oh no! It was brown chewy and gross- ryebread or something!! The only cooked meals i got were at the pizzeria where i had to battle through the italian slant on the german language!

    My BF got constipated and learnt his first german word - Verstopfung! (constipation!!)

    Germany gave us Lidl, Aldi and C & A!

    oh my god i think we're living parallel lives.... tell a lie, my german 'parents' also took me to a pizzeria (...how inventive, to make a change from brown chewy bread they give us chewy bread with a bit of tomato and cheese slapped on top!). Mind you, if i had to shop in Aldi i think i'd also just stick to bread.
