Americans: Immature, Swaggering, and Stupid as H*ll

UPDATE (10:53 a.m.): I just heard from Mick, and he asked the question, "What minions?!!!!" My apologies for the assumption, and many thanks to him for contacting me!

I received an e-mail today from Mick LaSalle, who has a blog at the SFGate.com. (It's made to look like he sent it to me personally, but I'm sure some minion goes trolling about looking for blogs that might link to him, and then sends out a mass mailing. Still, it kind of gives the impression that Mick LaSalle thinks I'm an important person!)

Below, I discuss his post regarding how he thinks Europeans see us. (Can you guess where this is leading?)

Urinating in public is definitely a European fetish.

I remember, having lived in Germany for 7 years, that German men would take a piss anywhere.

The writer of the post is only demonstrating his lack of euro-cred if he thinks that somehow peeing in public is something "ugly Americans" do.

In fact, Europeans think it silly that Americans get upset about "natural" things like peeing or breast feeding in public.

The things about the men that identified them as American was that they were bathed, groomed, speaking English and loud. That's about it.

I've been to Europe numerous times although the last trip was about 40 years ago. I found Europeans (except the British - they're generally lovely people and the Irish are so very dear) to be rude, and frequently unwashed and smelling quite offensive. In addition, despite the fact that I am fluent in French, I have a very slight Canadian accent (no idea where it came from but I did live in Canada intermittently), and I was disdained because of that. You know, the French don't care how could your grammar is, as long as you PRONOUNCE it properly. Idiots! Germans ALWAYS made me nervous and their men were unduly aggressive toward women. The Italian men were a bit TOO charming - it was clear their imaginations were running rampant, but still I find Italy to be a magical place.

What this idiot in San Francisco (where, by the way, if you weren't BORN there, you don't COUNT) overlooks completely is that PEOPLE are PEOPLE essentially and churlish behavior is offensive wherever you may roam.

Pam - you nailed it exactly! As always. And you should feel important - because you ARE!

LOL

wait a moment...

in England they still have a monarchy, where the Prince parades around in a Nazi Uniform for Holloween!

i find the stereotypical judgments of some snobby, ignorant Europeans, (and other Arenas), rather tiresome when i am overseas.

they seem vividly unaware of their own insecurity, jealousy, vanity, etc...

but this is nothing new, for they had the same vapid conceptions in the 80s and 90s.

in fact, usually i get 'that American is cool, kind, etc...'

So "hands-off" is what you call this administration? That speaks volumes in showing your ignorance.

hmmm....does it ever occur to you that maybe there are some legitimate reasons europeans may have a bad impression of america, other than our well-deserved pride? we have a history of meddling in others' affairs, in a manner that we would never tolerate if they tried it in our back yard. I suspect that if the french decided to invade a country in latin america to oust its government and occupy the place with a hundred thousand troops, destabilizing the place and provoking a civil war, we might have a problem with it. and would the french then accuse us of not liking them because they don't bathe?

For what it is worth, France did invade Mexico twice, in 1838 & 1861 - see:( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pastry_War , http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_intervention_in_Mexico) - the "Maximilian Affair").

Yes, we have made our mistakes, but I think that aside from the boorish behaviors of a few rude, arrogant people (Yes, I have seen this first hand with some Americans while on a field trip into Ciudad Chihuahua, Mexico), most of the resentment is based on jealousy. Good, old-fashioned jealousy.

Joe-6-pack has it right. It is 100% envy and jealousy. Like the dhimmi's in the U.S., the Europeans have let the envy turn to hate and the hate to insanity. You know how much sleep I lose over it, none. The only people in Europe I would vote to defend would be the U.K. The rest need to face another Hitler. Maybe Russia will show them that new Hitler.

To Mr. La Salle I would say--there's only one thing worse than a European--and that's a Europhile with a poorly disguised inferiority complex....
