Wow, interesting post. I agree with a lot of it. Our attention spans are short and our propensity to blame anyone other than ourselves is long. The Two Minute Hate. Keeps us divided when in fact we are, as you say, individually open, generous fun and likable. On this Board there seems to be a function that you can automatically add ", you asshole" or ",you dimwit" or ", you retard" to any post. I haven't found that function yet, but many seem to have enabled it on their browsers.
Whoa there Swede, ease off the Purple Haze.
We have been divided for a long time. always, really. However lately we only hear about it since leftists are out of power, otherwise it's "suck it up baby, elections have consequences".
Americans abroad are typically seen as obnoxious, rude and arrogant. And fat.
Unfortunately, you are correct about the long time divisions in the country. I believe however that the media has worsened it, particularly the 24/7 availability of everything that everyone does. It increases the heat on everyone imho.
I don't agree that Americans abroad are seen as obnoxious, rude and arrogant. That is an media generalization that people who travel abroad frequently just don't experience. There are different countries of course, but my experiences in China, Taiwan, Thailand, Belgium, and France in particular lead me to the opposite conclusion. People are just terrific to me particularly when they find out I am an American. (Although not a "true American" according to some on this Board, lol.)
Other indicators of the right’s hateful agenda include:
Seeking to conjoin church and state
Attacks on gay and transgender Americans
An unwarranted hostility toward immigrants
An unwarranted hostility toward Muslims
And conservatives’ contempt for the privacy rights of women
The bane of conservative dogma is the greatest threat to the rights and protected liberties of all Americans.
What can I say? I like you guys!
Edit: removed some stupid animation.
Blah, blah, blah, blah. Careful, you better look under your bed at night.
Left and right... yeah, the current teams. I don't think it's about that. Here's an example:
The world found this entertaining, a monkey doing a selfie. What do the world know about entertainment?
The real entertainment is giving the fucking ape copyright!
My point is that you don't really care anymore about what is really right or wrong. As long it's amusing it's okay.
Also, I disagree, Americans are typically held in high regard for all I know. Add "tacky" to your description and you have yourself a post-Jeltsin Russian.
I've been all over the world, I was even treated with amazing respect in the Middle East. The worst I've ever been treated was by Blacks working at the Minneapolis Airport.
