Americans are the most hated people in the world

I doubt we're not in the top 20 anymore Pyggy but outside of Muslims and Jews I'd bet we're at least 3rd! We are hated because we have our nose in everyone else's business and because we are brash, cocky and have attitude. I remember as a child upon being in Germany for my first visit back after we emigrated, my mother asked me to speak German when we were out in public because Americans were so despised there. To them we were just a bunch of loud mouthed unmannerly louts who cared nothing for the German culture or their people.

Although I don't agree that we ought to be, we do have a pretty bad rep around the world. And who can blame them? Our foreign policy in most regions has been to support whatever government will make our economy strongest, with no concern whatsoever as to how that government is treating its citizens. We kill innocent people. We torture and deny trials in a country founded on liberty and justice for all. We have undeserved influence in the world arena as the world's only superpower, and yet we blow the responsibility by being self-centered jackasses. Of course, this is all an argument against America, not Americans.

Americans, on the other hand, are often ill-educated couch potatoes who can't find Iraq on a map and rarely know about the goings-on of the rest of the world. And though we share some of the blame for why this is, the media is largely responsible, by using scare tactics and infotainment to take up news hours, rather than fulfilling their duty to actually inform about events that matter. I would also place fault on the public school system, which does not teach students critical thinking skills, but instead teaches them to memorize and repeat.

I was at first going to post disagree but that high five fest over there would have just kept my argument on the bottom.

So, i'm posting here. And why not? the points don't matter anyway.

I'm pretty sure that Muslims are currently the most hated people in the world, and America isn't even the top 20 of highest Muslim population (which is weird since Obama said that we're the fifth most Muslim populated nation... lulz).

But, there is no country that is called Islam. Just countries that have it. In fact, they hate people so much that they have to separate Muslims between two hateful sects, LOL!!!19

I'm pretty proud to be an American. I think the main problem that people MAY have with us is that America was born from a rebellious movement, so we naturally hate government takeover. Which is so different from Western Europe which is pretty cool with government running most things. Hell, it was considered Extremely Right Wing to be for Private Property. They even consider Capitalists to be a bunch of Anarchists.

But no, Americans aren't hated. They really just have a problem with our style.

We're cocky, too. Just because we have the most kick ass military along with a major takeover in business. Seriously, McDonalds and Oreos runs a Monopoly in other countries. And, our movie about Western European history (300) is far more successful than any movie Western Europeans have ever created.

Im the last person to start defending religion of any kind but saying that about Islam and Muslims is similar to me branding all Americans as bible-belt-doctor-killing-anti-gay-westboro-church-nuts

You should go to the middle east. They´re are alot more like you and me than you might (and do) think

I dont mind people being religious as long as they do it behind closed doors and dont come near my children

I actually didn't attack Muslims in general, i was just attacking the ones who bomb women and children. You know, the ones who are separated into hateful sects.

and the only reason why i brought up Muslims is because they are the most hated people in the world RIGHT NOW.

and why should religious people do it behind closed doors? Why not on a sidewalk or at a rally? Right to organize a protest. So what if they have a religious protest? And this is a free country (America, don't know where you're from, so sorry) so anyone can talk about any religion they want in the public or private sector.

You said that they had to separate muslims from fighting each other within the same country and then laughed about it. Sure, Shiites and Sunnis are two different sects that sometimes have battles with each other but how is that any different than the Catholics and the Protestants in Ireland, the US Civil War, etc. Perhaps you need a better understanding of world history before you jump to questionable conclusions.

You seem to still be missing the point.

I'm just pointing out how Muslims are the most hated people in the world, right now. Catholics had their time (which spawned Satanic revolutionaries), and so goes with all other shit.

But yeah, it's funny that they have sunnis and shiites.

WHATS TO BE JEALOUS OF? BRAVERY OR ARROGANCE? PERSONALLY I WILL JUST STAY HOME ...THANKS FOR THE INVITE. Not saying you dont have a beautiful country. I have met quite a few Americans,just about all have been lovely people, tho they tend to have this air of arrogance about them or maybe thats just the "AMERICAN WAY"

| Side: agree
1 point

Actually, most people hate america because of the persona that americans believe their country is more important than any other. For example, here in Canada, we are taught about just about every country in the world. Americans are generally, only taught about their own. This sends the wrong message.

Also, everyone posting about others being jealous, that attitude is the whole reason that so many people hate america. We are just fine where we are and your country, however great, is not the best and only good place to live in the world.

Although I am an American, I don't think I can honestly say that I am proud of our nation's foreign policy. Invading countries when we feel like it, trying to act like we are the baddest people in the room and our overall arrogance is shameful. It's no shock why the world thinks America is a greedy and tyrannical nation. Hopefully we can change this view under the Obama Administration, seeing as how he wants to leave Iraq and help the world overall become a safer place while having America on a more equal ground with other nations too.

they are hated by all Muslim nation because their support for Israel (Israel has been driving Palestinians out of their homes for the last 50 years) and their so called search for massive destruction weapons in Iraqi.And by other people for the american long list of wars.

| Side: agree

It's odd that I'm disagreeing with this one, since I'm usually the last person to be "proud to be an American," and whenever I'm overseas I just tell people I'm from Sweden, but I was hanging out with a British guy last week in Stockholm who made a rather good point about Americans.

He said that all the Americans he's met have been very kind and very cool, and that the ones who bother traveling to places other than, say, Cancun are the ones who are actually worth meeting. And also that it's interesting to him how Americans are so chill, and yet the government is so... not.

I thought they were some noteworthy points. Hate the government, not the people, maybe?

Uhh... thanks?

The minimum length for an argument is 50 characters. The purpose of this restriction is to cut down on the amount of dumb jokes, so we can keep the quality of debate and discourse as high as possible.

I agree. I have traveled allot (in Europe and Asia) and never met an American that I didn't like in those travels. Its like you said, Europeans dislike more Americans they see on banal reality shows and shows like Heraldo etc rather than Americans traveling around the world. George Bush (older and younger) did not help either (Never met an European who understands why he won not one but two elections)

In china after Obama won you see Americans taking the Canadian pins of their bags and putting an Obama pin instead

Word to the wise: Tell people you are Canadian if you feel the need to not give away your nationality - nobody (in Europe at least) would believe an American saying he´s Swedish

| Side: Disagree

I am Swedish! It's my first language and my native country. I'm in Sweden right now. It's my home. I generally tell people I'm a Swede living in New York. (Which, I suppose, is essentially what I am.)

Perhaps most of those who control the government and declare with impunity that America is the greatest country in the world, are those who have scarcely left it's borders.

I think that Jews and Israelis are. I mean, everyone hates us. We get blamed for everyone's problems and we get yelled at for defending ourselves against Arab attacks! Who could be more hated than us?!

lulz, you're right. Everyone hates the Jews (all the radical groups, at least).

But regular people hate Muslims. Not rational people, but regular people.

Unfortunately many Jews and Israelis seem to have a victim complex and think that anyone who criticizes Israel is automatically an anti-Semite. The Holocaust was a terrible event in human history and I don't mean to diminish its significance, but as horrible as it was it does not mean that Israel is exempt from criticism of its actions.

Also most people are not upset with Israel for defending itself; most people are upset because of the blatant abuse of human rights that Israel so brazenly commits. And you are not really one to complain about hate when you say "We shouldn't feel sorry for [civilians of Gaza]."

They actually just ignore human rights when it comes to defending their country.

They're more concerned about the lives of their citizens than the livelihood of the enemy.

Not defending their actions (which is for another debate), just pointing out the reasons for their actions.

The Jews/Israelis/Israelites are not needlesly paranoid they REALLY ARE hated.

The trouble is, they don't seem to understand why.

Americans are not so much hated as distained.

We all love everything about France, except the French.

South Africa is a beautiful country, shame about the people in it.

Old, but modified joke.

The American prays on his knees and preys on his neighbours.

The Jew knows the price of everything and the value of nothing.

The Irishman will fight to the death of someone else for what he believes in.

The English are a nation of self-made men--which absolves the Almighty of a dreadful responsibility.

Other joke

The police are British

The Motor Mechanics are German

The cooks are French

The Lovers are Italian and

Everything is organised by the Swiss.

Oh, no, I doubt that. If we're hated, it's probably because the people wish they were here. (Which is something I hear over and over, so....must be true). However, I can name 2 ethnicities I dislike almost as a whole, more than Americans, but I'll keep it to myself. :-)

No it isn't Americans. It is jews. A lot of the hated jews reside in America but it isn't Americans who are hated. The jews that reside in America aren't Americans. jews are jews regardless of what country or society they infect. they suck every society dry and destroy every societies' institutions, morals, mores. And of course jews take over all of the financial infrastructure in the jew-infected country. Like parasites for a while they co-exist and just drain the society. Eventually the society purges the jew or the society disintegrates at which time the jew moves to another host. This is happening gradually in America now. As America declines in this century the jew will likely move to Asia, especially China, and begin a new infection there.

I'm trying to decide whether you're a troll seeking attention, or a genuine anti-semitic bigot.
