    I am an American. Born and raised there and lived there for 50 years. I can say whatever the fuck I want to say about my own country. What pisses me off about folks who don't live in Europe, are not Europeans, and probably have never even been there except maybe for a one week vacation to tourist spots is that you don't know what the fuck you are talking about. You have absolutely no idea what life is like here. And yet you judge it and proclaim about it as if you do. Well, you don't.

    If you're living in Europe, you don't know what it's like in the US right now. Quit being a hypocrite.

    If civilized people are too weak or forbidden from enforcing civilization, then civilization is over and you have barbarism.

    And yet you lie about the obvious problems in Europe. You’re an idiot who ignores the problems Muslim bottom-feeders bring to Western culture. You’re a pro-Muslim, globalist progressive. You’re a traitor, that is if you ever really considered yourself an American. I’m willing to bet you’ve always hated America though.

    Come on, Tommy. That kind of diversionary tactic is unnecessary and it's beneath you.

    You are both hypocrites and will say anything to defend your position.

    One of you say I can't comment on America because I don't live there even though I am an American. Over 9 million American citizens live and work overseas. Do all of them have no right to comment on and have opinions on what goes on in America? We all vote. Do we have the right to vote but no right to have opinions about things in America? If the government gives us the right to vote, they must expect us to follow events there and have a considered opinion about it before we vote. Don't you think?

    As far as hating America: I don't hate America. I think it is wonderful to be an American. I would never give up my American citizenship. And at some point I will be moving back to live out my life there. I have every right to care about and be interested in what is happening in America.

    Having traveled extensively and lived and worked in 5 different countries as well as the US, I know that all countries have problems. All big cities have bad neighborhoods. All immigration is problematic. In Europe right now it is difficult because the immigration is so intense over a short period of time. In America, in the early part of the 20th century, masses of immigrants came to America and there were massive problems and lots of ghettos. Eventually America absorbed them into the culture.

    What you people display is xenophobia, racism, and provincialism. I can only assume that Hawk wants Europe to be the 'white' centered old world he imagined it to be. But it isn't; it changes and evolves over time as happens all over the world. The idea that there will always be an England (applied to anywhere) just isn't reality.

    Diversity is one of the things that makes America strong and makes her great. And makes her special. White supremacy and xenophobia don't.

    Per 100,000 people

    Murder rate France 1.3/US 5
    Rape France 16.2/US 27.3
    Violent Crime France 31.2/US 88.8


    I visited France for 35 years, have family there also. The US is closer to a third world country than France. The US is far more violent than France.
    I laugh when some rednecks here wanna prove otherwise.

    In any big cities there are bad neighborhoods. I remember one time in Athens, years ago, years before all this current immigration, I was wandering near the Parthenon area and found myself in a neighborhood that wasn't nice. Looked pretty rough. I turned around and made my way out. In London, I've been on the bus or in a car and passed through neighborhoods that didn't look too good. It is all over Europe and always has been. It's all over America, all over the world. Canada is supposed to be so nice, but I was once in Vancouver, in the middle of the downtown area, and there was a policeman guarding the entry to one street. He told us, tourists, that we should not enter that street as it was too dangerous. Canada. One of the 'nicest' countries in the world.

    As far as no go zones, as far as I know, that is a myth created by anti-immigration, white xenophobes.
