Anti-American sentiment: Why is it acceptable?


America is the most scrutinzed country in the world today. Ever increasingly, i've noticed this jump-on the America hating bandwagon trend. It's rarely met with criticism but approval. Big bad America. The worlds scapegoat.


Why is it so easy to **** off that entire nation particularly? Hmm? Doing the same for a region in Africa or a certain religion would absolutely not be so plain sailing. It would be alot harder. Easy target America?


PC doesn't seem to flex the rule book at U.S haters, criticis of athiesm, critics of Christians. It doesn't condition that way seeminly..The 'racist' callers won't use that word at US criticism. Maybe they don't suitably qualify under the deffinition of 'offensiveness'. They won't get their 'AmeroPhobia'.


Not one good thing is said about that country. whilst those criticis watch their US movies & sitcoms, use American innovations, and mastebate over American porn sites.


Whatever America does, it's a minority. Remember? Just like the Boston Bombers were called a minority.

When people refer to America they are talking about the government not the people, so your argument is invalid

Says who? That's not the case in my experience. Your answer is a get out clause and you're maybe the type of person my question refers too..

It is a left wing thing. Unfortunately, they are quite a loud group.

I wish the UK was more like the US.

Maybe true to the people who dislike the country. I notcie people can take offence to criticism of one country, continent, culture whilst excusing criticism toward another

Don't know about the other guy but I probably am. Tell me, why is the USA such a great place that deserves no criticism at all? Do you agree with censorship and restricting opposing views?

It's probably like when people **** off rich people because they're better off than anyone else, so people think it's fine to **** off first world countries but not developing ones.

All the Americans I've met (and I've met quite a few) are lovely. Just sayin'.

I think you're right. Thumbs up vs thumbs down probes my point.

Nothing against the American people, but the American government deserves all the criticism (and downright abuse) that it gets.

America opens itself up to criticism with its constant self-promotion as the greatest nation on earth which is perfect in every way and not guilty of any wrongdoing. If America is unwilling to criticise itself, someone else has to. There's a lot to criticise too.

Probably because most students were born after the years of the Thather/Reagan alliance and have grown up with Bush/Blair instead, and so don't get all the residual admiration and 'special relationship' stuff.
