You know, it's high tie that the rest of the world bands together to solve the "America Problem"

Seriously, America has NEVER been the "good guy". We've raped, murdered and oppressed, non-white, non-christian nations around the world since our very inception. Yet we love to tell ourselves how great we are while enjoying those "every day low prices" without once considering the cost in pain, suffering and blood that comes with. Trump is the true face of real America, and so many Americans would agree that he speaks for them. Because it's who we are as a nation

If you had a neighbor that drove his SUV through your yard, beat your children, raped your daughters and took whatever he wanted from you, what would you do?

Fair one. I don't think I've been Fark-stalking you, tbh, I think I've made maybe 3, 4 tops, posts about you in the past month or so, related to the fact that you're totes anti-Trump but not willing to put your money where your mouth is regarding actually standing up for the country you believe in.

Perhaps I am just being an asshole.

But to flip perspectives, I have been crowing on Fark since last October about getting my Irish citizenship, so I have a kind of insurance against Brexit. But say I moved to Dublin tomorrow; would I then tubthump about how my country's going down the shiatter and how we should all fight against it?

I'd hope I wouldn't, because that would be kind of dickish.

You remind me one of my old college friends. He hasn't lived in or paid taxes to the United States in over 30 years, but he's quite sure he knows how to solve all of our problems (hint: it begins with sticking it to the libs).

I came into the post to make a joke about right wingers making the inevitable claim that "Africa is a Chinese client continent" plus I heard there's a few moslems there, but you actually made that point and were apparently serious about it. So now it seems a lot less funny.

So, I'll change the subject: the Wall Street Journal used to do a "watch" of other news sites back in the early 2000s, mocking them for using the phrase "African-American" to describe actual Africans. I am pretty sure this is the extent of which most conservatives actually know anything about Africa.

You'd be surprised at what this kind of thing looks like to the other side.

There's a guy who makes the same inane and inaccurate accusations at me every time he notices my username. He seems to think I'm this conservative boogeyman. Nevermind that I'd label myself pretty staunchly liberal in most regards, that the party I voted for in my last election is literally named "The Liberal Party of Canada".

Anyways, I digress. My point is, it only takes 4-5 posts to not just give the impression that you're stalking someone. Take it from someone unrelated to this disagreement - it's creepy and really offputting when people are seemingly obsessed with you.

What shiathole part of America do you live in.  Sounds like you don't live in a very nice part.

At 54, I've visited several countries outside the United States.  I lived in Iran for two years, Germany for 2 years, and Japan for another 5 years.  I've had the opportunity to travel throughout Europe, the middle and Far East and yet to recall a time I was called on my bad behavior.  Well, there was that one time I was holding the hand of a Japanese girl that bugged the hell out of some older business man but, to be fair, I married that woman and am still married to her some 25 years later after the incident occurred.  I believe myself A done a fair job representing the US by learning the host country culture, some language, and mainly staying out of trouble while visiting.  We're not all assholes when we travel.  While Trump is not America's best face right now, most countries hold us in higher regard than you believe, when we are on our better behavior.

If you're using Fark as a gage to how well liked or disliked we are forget it.  Most of us are self loathing apologists here.  We hate ourselves and believe everyone hates us as much as we hate ourselves.  fark that. fark Trump and the ugliness he often represents.

People still like America.  That's capital that shouldn't be wasted by bad behavior overseas and self loathing at home.
