Below's a list of names for Germany. We are called after regional tribes, depending on the direction people came visiting/trading/invading from.

-Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource, pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.

-Every nation ridicules other nations, and all are right.

Not my post but I completely agree with the sentiment. Let's start off with the way the US treats its people - no social safety net, ridiculous underfunding of education, and a ruinously costly health care system that prioritizes wealth extraction over patients. Corrupt violent police. And gun ownership rates are similar in Finland but gun crime is miles beneath the US. And apparently at least half the US is racist.

In complete sincerity, the (attempted) point the reporter is making is "Seriously, USA, clean up your own shiat before you comment about another nation's toilet."

The validity of that argument is, of course, questionable at best. But they are extremely making a "NO U" / "all nations are bad therefore they are equally bad" argument.

That's not very surprising. I'm originally from Düren, not far away from where Limburgish is spoken. Let's say that I'm very familiar with the resentments all across Europe towards Germans, even if you were obviously born decades after the war. Going abroad always went with the question if and how people would react to your nationality, once they found that out. In so far I am sorry for the young Russians who will be feeling the brunt of Putin's actions for many years to come.

"Stupid Prussians" is probably still used among Belgians. And when I went to the university of Maastricht for a semester, I remember one girl my age who was very strongly against any relationships with German guys. Not all of them, but 50+ years after the war the force of that was unexpected.

FLMountainMan: qorkfiend: FLMountainMan: LL316: I actually feel sorry for the journalists. Some of them may be all in, but some may also be afraid for their families if they don't ask the right questions.

Also, yes. America is a garbage country. Compared to Finland. Compared to Iran? We're a utopia. But many are risking their lives to better their country and they deserve all the respect.

Why are we a "garbage country" compared to Finland?  Too many of "those people" for you?

Too many Republicans

There's plenty of one-party states out there for you to move to.


Just because we're beyond sick of your party doesn't mean we want there to be only one major party.
