America means the US throughout the world.

Here's the facts; Our full name is United States of America. It is not the United States. Once you have America in your name, then go ahead and call yourself Americans.

And, as a reminder, we were the first independent country in North or South America to leave their colonial rule.

People who say ' but we're Americans too' - No, you are North American or South American. It's petty bullshit and just one more thing to criticize the USA over.

Mexico's official name is United Mexican States. Yet we call the people Mexican, not United Statesian.

Brazil's name is the Federated Republic of Brazil. We call the people Brazilians, not Federated Republicans.

Uruguay's name is the Oriental Republic of Uruguay. We call the people Uruguayans, not Oriental Republicans.

We are the only country with America in its name. Yes, it is weird to have a country and two continents with the same name, but not our problem. And it is not some purposeful thing to co-opt the name.

Most people identify with their nation of origin, not the continent (except Australia). It is all bullshit - mostly from other North and South Americans who want to desperately find something to bitch about. They look like idiots when they bring this up.

If any other country had gotten to "America" first as its country name, no one would give a shit. Central and South Americans get pissy about citizens of the U.S. calling ourselves "Americans" because they don't like us, our country, or our government's shenanigans in their own parts of the Americas. While the latter dislike is completely justified, the whining over the use of "Americans" is annoying and pointless.

Central and South Americans don't conceptualize themselves as Americans in any meaningful sense anyway. I guarantee that if the U.S. didn't exist or if it weren't a meddling superpower, they wouldn't consider themselves "Americans" at all. Without us, they wouldn't have any particular common cause with each other.

None of the European countries had made a dent in ending Nazi dominance on the Western or Southern fronts before the Americans arrived, and they had been fighting for 4-5 years by that point.

Oh, and for the uninitiated - ze internet is international. There is no such thing as an "American site". English is the lingua franca for the time being. Anyone can read and write here. You don't get a wall, DL!

R300 Nope just an American Jew with German Jewish parents.

You are the neo-Nazi here, trying to downplay what Germans did during WWII. Now why is that? Especially at a time when the far right is growing in strength in Germany and other European nations.

Is the WAPO a reliable news source??? Yes it is.

BTW I am now European too, thanks to Article 116.

So fuck you, fellow European.

Oh wow. Here's the obligatory American jew calling people nazis for not agreeing with him.

Watch it, man. I'm the law that makes using nazi as an insult a punishable offense in Germany. Get out of the past and welcome to the present where Germany is the most enlightened nation with the highest regard for human rights, and the USA is... well... you know.

Pathetic, childish, reeks of someone with little knowledge of the world and no respect for others. Did you know Europeans have flaws?

I'm a European wondering where all these Americans got their ideas from, since they bear no resemblance to anything in Europe since the 70's.

by Anonymousreply 308Last Thursday at 2:07 PM

I'm the European questioning Americans who have traveled to Europe in the last decade and know exactly what they are parodying because they saw it first hand. I'm also the European who has to state the obvious "the internet is international" but comes to a website created by Americans, run by Americans, with a majority American readership and membership, to smugly and condescendingingly deny that Europeans can be stereotyped as smug and condescending.

And lastly, I'm the European who doesn't know that Rick Steves is an American travel host who introduced a lot of Europe to uneducated Americans but through his travels only absorbed the European predilection for alcoholism and smugness and none of the chicness or discipline to maintain a slender body

R 307 European here, lived in USA for 10 years. Loved many things but the free-for-all capitalism and the conditioning of Americans to shop relentlessly, the refusal to care for your citizens, the refusal to provide healthcare, the appalling religious bullshit that colors federal policy, the trashing of your environment, the inherent racism, the belief in manifest destiny.... need any more?

No it’s not perfect here but my quality of life is streets ahead of yours any day.

What Americans do have is a wonderful optimism and an ability to accept someone at face value and not care about their connections , but to be able to offer that person the opportunity to do well based on merit, and to take a genuine pleasure in the success of that person. Those qualities are in short supply in Europe.

Now are you hung, because this European Jew needs a good fuck🥰

R317, elder gay here. I understand things aren't perfect. However, there was a time not long ago when rivers were so polluted they caught fire, there was NO recycling, none. Lead was in gas, paint, glazed dishes. DDT was not banned yet. Read Rachel Carlson's "Silent Spring". If you think the air is bad now, 50 years ago you should have been on I-95 in Connecticut going past New Haven.

Thank God those hippies cared about the environment and started Earth Day. We have more to do, but we have come a long way.

R319 I agree with you. But also I see the industrial farming and liberal overuse of pesticides on crops. Rarely will one see an unblemished apple in the USA. It’s spray, spray,spray. It’s in Europe too, but a lot less and stringently controlled.

I love the USA- a phenomenal country with so much to see. I drove west and having left Richmond, was enthralled by the endless forest, the various trees, the colors. You guys are incredibly fortunate to live on such a beautiful continent.

[quote]I get fucking fed up with Americans claiming responsibility for ending WW2.

That's a terrible shame, but it's completely true. The US was called the arsenal of democracy for a good reason: it was. The UK, the country I assume you're from, did not have anything like the financial resources to fight the war. I mean not even fucking close. Without American food, money, and munitions, the UK would have had to surrender, and that's no exaggeration.

The Russians also received absolutely MASSIVE support from the US. The one key item they received that they probably could not have fought the war without was trucks. They received huge numbers of the extremely reliable and well designed US two and a half ton trucks by lend lease.

And this is not even mentioning the US contribution to the invasion of France, the air war, and the drive into Germany. (And let's no even get started on the Pacific War.) I'm sorry, I know it's not "fashionable" for Americans to brag about WWII because the British are so sensitive about this, but yes, the US was key in the war being won.

That said, it goes without saying that, without our allies, the UK and USSR, holding out as long as they did, it would have been supremely difficult, or perhaps even impossible, for the US to have won the war on its own.

R322: I'm laughing at the 'red trousers' thing. I grew up in the Netherlands and was so used to seeing those among a certain type of men aged 55+ that I never thought about it twice, until my brother (who lives in the US) visited a few years ago and pointed it out to me. They are also quite common in the 't Gooi area of Holland, by the way, and may even be a national phenomenon.
