but we are more special this time around
Americans: We know
@Spork and Foon, and some of us are very sorry about it.
@Nurse Joy, we're a nation of spoiled and unapologetic people. What can you do
@Nurse Joy, no point being sorry, there are stupid people across the globe. We just give them a platform so other stupid people get to praise their stupid ideas
@Spork and Foon, Idk I think we got plenty of people insincerely apologetic about thing they can’t control
@Natural Sarcasm , yeah you really have a point there. Yes we certainly make it easy for people to point and laugh as a lot we do is front center on the world stage
@Nurse Joy, some of us are doing something about it
@Spork and Foon, be a good empathic person
@Natural Sarcasm , you're right about not being sorry, do something about your part of the globe
@Natural Sarcasm , would you like to speak to a manager, Karen?
@Multiple personality, and which part makes me a Karen?
Edit: if it’s about the insincere apology comment I was referring to celebrities posting videos saying “I take responsibility”. It’s not sincere or necessary
@Multiple personality, as far as me “doing something about my part of the globe” well you can’t fix stupid and silencing people I don’t agree with isn’t an option either
@Natural Sarcasm , I forget who said it, but this quote was gold. “The internet just gave all the dumbest people a platform and an audience”
I love my country but I laughed at this. Sad but true
@Natural Sarcasm , the said part that our country doesn't realize is that our original flag was relation against taxation and dictatorship. I'm a vet and when I here vet's talk about America football players talking a knee during the national anthem and getting 'Spider swiping, kid kicking, nuke pressing a$$hole's, they forget this nation is built upon us strong resisting the weak with money and political power.
@Natural Sarcasm , the best thing is, both the Left and the Right agree it’s the other group that are the idiots!
And people think we’re a divided people, p-sha!
@Hot Coffee, true and both sides have a showcase full of idiots though the far left seems pretty motivated to inflate their numbers at an alarming rate as of late
@Natural Sarcasm , good good, partisanship where there wasnt cause for any. good job
@Natural Sarcasm , Speaking as a foreigner, we don’t get America.
I have met many wonderful and amazing Americans - people I loved and respected. And I’ve met others who straight up called teenage me a baby murdering monster because they thought that the British were behind a plot to bring in sole kind of new world order under the rule of Satan.
You’ve given us some the greatest thinkers of their generations, and people who believe that Bill Gates has invented a microscopic (and presumably self powered) microchip that he wants to inject us all with so he can eliminate 90% of the population.
Seriously, are you guys ok?
@Nellybert , we’re more okay then most of the world but definitely could use some improvement
Edit: to clarify “most of the world” is including all of South America, Central America, Africa, and countries run by communism. I’m not saying the US is the best thing ever but we are still better then most of the world
@Hoban Washburne, now I’m curious which part of my last comment you disagree with. Cause it sounds like you either think that the US is in the bottom 50% of the world or that it’s perfect and needs no improvement. So which is it?
@Natural Sarcasm , Fair point. Most of the world is an absolute shít show, isn’t it?
@Hoban Washburne, well downvoting with out an answer when I’m speaking directly to you just says to me that you acknowledge that I’m right but it still makes you mad.
Thank you for at least confirming my suspicions. Perhaps next time you’d be willing to have a conversation
@Natural Sarcasm , i disagreed with the statement “though the far left seems to be inflating their numbers at an alarming rate as of late” because you took an innocuous statement/meme and intentionally turned it into an “ahahaha dumb libs, amirite?” circlejerk; one that recurs far too prevalently on this app and is exhausting to listen to. a disingenuous devolution to partisan shjt-slinging that furthers no conversation and does nothing but entrench people in their preconceived opinions. the fact that you accuse me of stonewalling productive conversation is therefore a special kind of irony
@Hoban Washburne, I knew why you downvoted that one. I was actually talking about all the other comments. And for the record I also said there were dumb people on the right as well as the left. I just believed the far left, which I think it’s important to note far left is not the left as a whole, has been going over board lately.
I was actually referring to my comment about the US doing better then most of the world but still needed improvement. You apparently disagreed with that and when I asked why you just downvoted that too. So yeah you weren’t being productive and no it wasn’t ironic. However, it is ironic that you accuse me of stonewalling when I’m the only one pushing for dialogue
*Laughs in immigrant*
It will always amaze me how self loathing this country is. The best place to be in, in terms of oppertunity and freedoms, but because everything is not 100% up to people's standard its a country comparable to somalia, venezuala, north korea, etc. If l had to do it over l would pick to come to this country every single time. I fvcking love this country perks and flaws, because despite what the nay sayers say, we as people have a right and the ability to not only make change, but carve out a name and a fufilling life for ourselves. Disagree, hate, scorn me if you want, l respect your opinion, but it don't matter to me. God bless this great country!
@Hatori, every country has idiots, but people pick on America because they are aiming up. So long as America is the target if these jokes, I know we are still the best.
@Hatori, it’s people like you that make this a great nation!
They just stuffed Florida to capacity, and let the rest of us live with a few here and there.
@ThePandaPool , *Floriduh
Other countries like to dog on us but neglect that their country has quite the population of idiots. At least Muricans own it!
“These days, they’re called Leftists or Liberals and more are jumping in over the border every day.”
Atleast were not slaves to an authoritarian government like the rest of the world. We cant be arrested for saying mean words, and were actrually allowed to protect ourselves from violent rapists/murderers. Lol
@CocoasBro, I don't think you know what the rest of the world's governments are if you think all of them are slaves to an authoritarian government.
@Your Waifu, in brittain and germany you can be arrested for mean words. As far as im concerned that makes you a slave to an authoritarian government.
@CocoasBro, fvck yeah bro!!!
THEY ALL WANT TO BE US
@CocoasBro, I don't think you know what authoritarian means then. And that's started to happen to a lesser degree in the US as well. At the very least colleges suspend students over it.
@Your Waifu, authoritarian :
Favoring or enforcing strict obedience to authority especially that of the government, at the expense of personal freedom
Yup checks out.
@CocoasBro, I agree! But we still got a lot of dumb dumbs... a surplus really
@Natural Sarcasm , fair enough.
@seeUpee, USA USA USA! They hate us cause they aint us.
@CocoasBro, i mean, the dems sure want to be authoritative. They tried to impeach trump because they dont like/ disagree with him. If they can do that to a president im sure theyll do it to citizens. I do agree that we aremore free than others, but at this point youre vasically silenced everywhere for having an opinion that differs from the radical left.
@CocoasBro, but authoritarian government is in direct contradiction to the constitution's of the countries you named, as well as how their governing body is set up. They would need to make much larger changes to be fully authoritarian. I also wouldn't say that the UK is enforcing strict obedience to the government so much as simply caving slightly to the politically left radicals that have been plaguing every first world country as of late. I'm fairly positive that if it makes people angry enough it'll disappear, especially since Brits are known to get a bit violent when theyre angry enough.
@seeUpee, actually they're all mostly annoyed by us.
@Your Waifu, GOOD!!! If you aren't proud by that then get out! I'm proud of this country, including our flaws
@seeUpee, yeah, no. Theres no reason to be proud of other countries seeing us as obnoxious and loud, and thinking people should get out if you don't like their opinions is part of why they think that. It also goes against the founding principles of our country, so there's that.
@Your Waifu, dude I like you and you are very knowledgeable... I know you love to argue about ANYTHING! But get the fvck out of here with that bullcrap. As an immigrant to this country which I love, I have seen it from the outside-in. No one is going to like the top dog!! There will always be haters! No one ever likes who the winner is. Like I said before, you don't like that? You think another country is better? Then get out
@Your Waifu, he’s joking lol
@seeUpee, but we're not the top dog and haven't been for a few decades. In fact, America is actually at the lowest it's been in all fields except military since the great depression. We're not even in the top ten for best education, economy, or employment rates. We're number one on military spending by over twice as much as number two though, so I suppose it's the best place to be a soldier.
@Natural Sarcasm , he's not very good at showing it.
@Your Waifu, OBNOXIOUS AND LOUD?! DON’T YOU MEAN IDYLLIC AND BOISTEROUS?!??!!! WE’RE THE BEST AROUND, BABY!!!!!! 🦅🦅🦅🦅🦅🦅🦅🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🔫🔫🔫🔫🔫🔫 USA USA USA USA
@Your Waifu, well the first part sounded like he was joking. I think you poked and prodded til the joking stopped
@Natural Sarcasm , I've seen so many people post things exactly like that with complete sincerity that the idea that was a joke never even occurred to me.
@Your Waifu, Wow, thanks for the downvote. Good to know you have absolutely no sense of humor. How is navigating this app without that? Gotta be frustrating.
@XiozTaschez, do you do this every time someone downvoted you? If so you must get in a lot of arguments.
@Your Waifu, Only when I know it pushes a button. Did I push you button? 😇😇😇😇😇
@XiozTaschez, no, but I'll push yours.
@Your Waifu, WOAAAAHHHH! Don’t you threaten me with a good time!!!
@Your Waifu, I get that but acting stereotypical when it comes to America is a pretty well established joke. Be super obnoxious loud and ridiculous with tons of 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 💥 💥💥 cause we know how the world sees us and making fun of ourselves is funny
@Natural Sarcasm , this is the first I've ever heard of it being a joke.
@XiozTaschez, I'll threaten you with whatever kind of time I want. Or whatever kind you want~
@Natural Sarcasm , hell yeah brother!!!
@Your Waifu, hey man! Dont like it? Get out! Nothing you said is even worth arguing about. We are #1 for a reason and that is why Trump is getting 4 more years
@seeUpee, if someone is annoyed by you being proud to be an American and you don’t crank up the patriotism to a hundred, wave a flag and play a sick guitar solo while fireworks explode behind you then can you truly call yourself an American??
@Your Waifu, oh I'm sorry a downvote Waifu?... This is not like you... Did I push a button?
@Natural Sarcasm, oh man! I got into an argument the other day... They asked me what color am I? (cuz you know, I'm latino)... I SAID RED, WHITE AND BLUE!!!!
@seeUpee, what I don't like is over a decade of leaders who've failed to do anything about these problems and people who let their patriotism and desire to stick to one party like it's a sports team blind them to how big these problems are, especially when those people insist that anyone who disagrees with them should leave the country. I also don't like people who claim they're against people blindly following others but then themselves blindly follow whoever the current most charismatic political candidate is without questioning anything they do.
@seeUpee, you say this as if pushing someone's buttons is a badge of honor and not a way to trap yourself in a several hour long cycle of frustration.
@Your Waifu, I like the sports team analogy, that sounds very accurate. That is one of the most annoying things I see, particularly by young liberals who when questioned have no answers. Not that Conservatives don’t have their uninformed people as well but these college liberals... just wow. Like I don’t like calling people stupid but I seriously have no idea how they got accepted into university with the utter lack of knowledge they have
@Natural Sarcasm , the worst is always that when you try to argue anything with either group, they dismiss you as being a member of the opposing group and completely ignore any points you try to make. It's why I can't discuss politics with any of my grandparents.
@Your Waifu, yeeeees it’s absolutely ridiculous. Or when you ask where they got their info they get extra defensive like you asking for confirmation is somehow an attack
@seeUpee, fvck yeah!
@seeUpee, damn straight! Like you ive seen rhinfs from different perspectives, ive been in the hood, ive seen what its like at the mexican border, ive lived it! I may not be “the right color” but ive been there! Ive been in section 8 with all the thigs and ive dealt the drugs! Ive been to the border and ive seen both sides of that too! On one side ly friends uncle is a border patrol agent, we went a mile down the road to a gated house with lots of drugs around to hang out and olay pool with the other side!!!! But im a straight white male so i know nothing! Im also racist, i hate gays, and i hate whatever a xeno is. There is no better place to live in the world than tue greatest country god has given us and that is the United States of America! Anyone who disagrees with that is an enemy of mine!
@Your Waifu, D’awwwwwwww!!!
@MMSieBreeze, Your red tin foil hat seems to be covering eyes a bit there bud.
@Your Waifu, at this point most of the people exuding "patriotism" are really just displaying nationalism. Patriotism is great and based in reality and can hear it's flaws and work to improve them. Nationalism is bad for any and all involved. America IS great and has been great for a long time now. I haven't been a citizen of every country so I can't say that America is definitely the greatest country in the world for a specific individual. I can be pretty sure that it's one of the best for any general individual and all the odd-ball ones too. I love America but we have some stuff to fix and hooraying that we're great, the best, the most beautiful, the greatest, only gets in the way of that. Too many people don't understand this and it hurts us as a people. We don't need to get down on ourselves for it, just realize what some of our biggest problems are and fix them. 1 by 1.
@MMSieBreeze, you have a point but we can still legally speak out. I mean tech censorship is a work around the dems have been using but they cant put us in a cage for disagreeing about basic biology.
@Your Waifu, they put people in cages for years for saying mean words on the internet waifu Wake the fvck up, and look at whats happening.
Identification with one's own nation and support for its interests, especially to the exclusion or detriment of other nations.
there is nothing wrong with nationalism, and in fact most people who call themselves nationalists just use the first half of the definition. You should advocate for your own nation above all others even if it hurts another nation to do so.
@CocoasBro, Imagine my lack of surprise to hear that from you. That "especially to the exclusion or detriment of other nations" part hurts more than just those other nations. Just as exclusion of other peoples is harmful to those people and the whole community. That's not to say that you should be including other kinds of people, it's just that you should not be going out of your way in order to exclude other people and countries just because they are different from you or your nation and solely to harm them in some way. That's called being a POS and is no good for anyone involved. You don't have to sing Kumbaya with others, just not structure your life to beat them down.
If they're truly just adhering to the first part of the definition, then the definition doesn't fit them. You can't just use half of a words definition. If that's true, then they are patriots. Patriotism: the quality of being patriotic; devotion to and vigorous support for one's country.
You should look it up more.
@CocoasBro, for now... be vigilant lest we lose this freedom!
@Natural Sarcasm , the price of freedom
@mas2de, I think you won that one, mostly, but don’t forget, Merriam-Webster redefined racism to be recursively defined recently.
And more importantly, language is living, words and their meanings do change. People can pick and choose what parts of the means of words they want to use. If enough people start using it in the new way, its definition will change.
@CocoasBro, keep using nationalism the way you intend it and eventually the definition will change to what you want it to be.
Fight the power, don’t let 1984 become reality!
@mas2de, like i said most people who consider themselves nationalists dont consider themselves nationalists because they want to exclude people or hate other people from other nations. They consider themselves nationalists because they think they should protect and think about the interests of their nations people first and fore most. So think you im glad you think of me as someone who looks after the people that matter to him.
Well we were stupid and brought blacks here
@MinkeyObama , Who the hell upvoted this comment? Who the hell approved your username and avatar? Go fck yourself
@DecoJake, it's a joke, obviously.
@Doctor Yak, Are most of @MinkeyObama's comments jokes? They seem to hold some pretty racist views and don't seem to be jokes and it's not just one or 2 comments here and there. Not everyone on the internet is a decent human being.
I sincerely doubt they are joking.
@mas2de, They aren't
@mas2de, you could be right, absolutely. I guess I just prefer to see it as trolling, and unless you know them irl, there's not really a way to prove it either direction. Some trolls are incredibly dedicated to the art.
Are just not going to bring up the fact they slapped Canada?
Funny, never think of anyone else. I forget there's other countries... Hopefully we stop all thought of them in every way.
