    Perfectly normal and natural unlike the marxist-socialism we have here. Once you start degrading family, race and nationality you are on a fast track to civilisational decay.

    So?
    The Welsh and Scots are racially different from Brits, yet we treat them the same, we don't tell them to,build a wall separating our countries because we respect them, whereas it's obvious that you don't
    We're all practically identical the english, scots and welsh. The welsh are the oldest and came here from Iberia and later viking and danes came from the east. We're still highly related. Mexicans are mostly a mix of red indian and spanish while the US is sort of a german/jewish multicultural smorgasbord but they are almost universally taller. It is clear that you are dealing with two seperate national families, with different world views, capabilities and physiologies at different stages of economic development and as such need to be kept separate.

    You dont attain the economic and cultural success they have by being stupid. I suppose many Americans remain in their bubble for fear of coming across as an imperialist :confused:
    The economic and cultural success has nothing to do with the majority of contemporary American population. You're forgetting that a nation is at the end of the day an arbitrary concept and the success of a nation doesn't mean that the entire population is responsible for that success.

    Imperialist?? Could you please elaborate on this??

    They can't really win Americans can they. They're either accused of not travelling/of being oblivious to the world or they are accused of interfering/of riding roughshod over other cultures.

    Well they are generally full of themselves and their glorious nation. A lot of Americans can't even name more than 5 European countries as they are so inside their own bubble. Literally 50% of them are dumb as a donkey. For instance, almost 50% of them still think that the Earth is only 10 000 years old.

    Also, they have literally ruined the English language.

    I'm not a Brit, but it's not awfully difficult to see why they are being made fun of.
    You do realise the average person in every country is that stupid? The average Brit and average American are about the same in intelligence.

    Because Welsh and Scots don't cross over illegally and bring crime.

    It is part of British humour to satirise and make fun out of things. It is so much not bashing but just poking fun. Comedic groups like Monty Python made fun out of everyone.

    I've been to America plenty of times and find it a fascinating country because of how different each state is to each other. I find it a shame that the beautiful landscapes of the southern states has become overshadowed by its social issues.

    Americans are also very friendly, especially in the rural parts. They are always very nice to tourists.

    Considering Donald Trump is forcing Mexico to build a wall so that they can't cross into America, it's a bit daft to say that Americans and Brits are the same! We wouldn't do that to Wales or Scotland!
