Foreign Obsession with the United States: WHY?
For a long time I have really wondered why on earth people in foreign countries, that are not Americans or were not ever Americans that moved overseas, are so obsessed with the United States. I sit there wondering is your country that perfect, I mean truly perfect where nothing bad is happening at all so the United States is just that horrible and wrong and despicable that you have to be so obsessed with it and ridicule it, mock it, and attack it, or well in most cases just one political side of it, of course not even wanting to acknowledge the faults and failures of the other political side? For one that does engage in that consistent behavior, a word comes to mind, xenophobe.
But truly I have wondered this for a long time. The United States is not perfect; no one ever professed it to be. Yes Americans are proud of their country, but apparently that is seen as a bad thing unless of course oh the liberal side or left side says they are proud of their country, but that barely ever happens as they just find more and more faults with the United States, well mainly with the right side or conservatives. So by that logic you could say that the left really are not proud of their country, and with that I then I ask why stay in a country you do not like? Oh that is because it is easier to take for granted all the benefits provided by this country, but still finding fault after fault with it. Reminds me of the adage biting the hand that feeds you. I am sorry to break the news the daydreaming Utopia of life will not ever exist. It is delusional to keep wishing, and hoping, and praying for it. Opps minus the praying since religion is bad, according to some, but then it depends on which religion.
But I digress, what is the foreign obsession with the United States and the need to nitpick it constantly? Frankly I say worry about your own country, it certainly is not perfect and won’t ever be without fault, or are you also just as not proud of your country as well and so you need to ignore your country by ridiculing a different country? But yes yes I forgot no one is allowed to say they are proud of their country or they will be seen as a racist or like the Nazis with that whole idea of national pride. So that more or less means silence to anyone that dares not to conform to what we think and what we believe.
Of course another explanation is while foreigners are pissed off with the United States and Americans thinking they are the most powerful country and despise the US citizens for such thought, of course people want to migrate here, weird, but ya know it is the foreigners thinking the United States ARE great just as much as US citizens, so foreigners are just as much at fault for bolstering the US to the high ranking pedestal of world standing. The Untied States did not set out to be the top country, it just happened. The people of this country did not want the monarchy/religious oppression in England so they found land elsewhere and settled and fought for independence, and well that ended up being highly admirable and so the US was propelled to the top of being the supreme and most powerful country. We simply worked for it.
So it makes me laugh that foreigners obsess about the United States and in most cases not always a favorable way, namely because they hate Republicans/Conservatives and blame them for all that is wrong with the United States of course forgiving Democrats/Liberals for everything and of course then foreigners ONLY end up paying attention to completely biased liberal news out of the United States and yup I will indeed say bias as liberal media has done a completely fantastic job brainwashing people and rewriting or whitewashing history and even setting up the smoke and mirrors of present day life in the United States to ensure the left look like the real winners. Sadly it is a monumental fallacy, but foreigners became too absorbed into the liberal media bias mentality they won’t ever bother learning the truth and facts contrary to the talking points. Again a word comes to mind, xenophobe.
So mind you if makes me laugh when Europeans obsess and ridicule the United States with glee, yet some of them want to migrate here. Well that is odd and hypocritical. Oh but it is just so much easier to blame the United States for all the woes of the world, for all the atrocities, of course the US is quite young compared to the other countries, but ya know if the United States is that horrible then why do people want to come here? Why do people look to the United States for help/aid/assistance? Again, hypocrisy.
Or maybe foreigners are simply jealous of the United States. Frankly I don’t boast and I am not egotistical about being American, but yeah I am at times proud of my country. Why that is so atrocious for me to say I will never know unless I am simply not allowed to be proud to me American and if I am not then what country am I supposed to be proud to be of or from?
And ya know I have heard that foreigners say Americans are stupid, ignorant and don’t know anything about anything outside of the United States. That is partially true, but at the same time foreigners actually don’t know all about the United States either. I can say that with complete confidence from having lived in another country for many years. So it is rather funny foreigners would say Americans are ignorant when foreigners are ignorant of the United States as well. Ah hypocrisy.
I guess foreigners must hate their own country that much to be so obsessed with the US. Sad really as then what happens, you completely ignore all the negatives happening in your own country, wow DENIAL, by having to constantly go after the so called negatives of another country. Thus, we have xenophobia, but then it is comical when xenophobes attack others for being xenophobes and claim they are being attacked and persecuted for their own xenophobic behavior. Oh double standards and hypocrisy you are so easy to point out.
