Politics / What´s your opinion in Howard?
« on: November 20, 2007, 06:36:01 am »
How can America handle the bad and sad but very strong anti-americanism especially in Germany and Europe?
 
At first, please excuse my bad grammar, I´m living in germany since more than three decades as US-citizen in Northern Germany and I lost a lot of my homespeech, but didn´t lost the binding to the United States, my relatives and my roots.
 
As a little boy I felt the the aversion against me or other Americans in Germany, but they never handled it on a direct way or didn´t speaking loud to the afflicted persons.
 
Okay, every foreigner in a foreign country will make the same experiences, but my opinion is, the most of the germans didn´t changed their character , only their exterior or outfit for a little while.
 
It changed complete after the fall of the Berlin wall and not with the administration of Pres W Bush´s crew.
 
They started open and direct campaigns not alone against the USA politics and americans, every day is it to read for everybody in german newspapers, to see at their tv channels or to hear on radio stations in the  large german multimedia landscape or themselve to hear from the germans  .
 
It grown-up to a big dangerous abscess, let me say, it is a special german subculture, it´s hip to bash americans.
 
If you need in germany the agreement of other people, starting your statement or discussion with phrases of anti-americanism or bashing with hate campaigns against america, after them you´ll have the most people behind you.
 
Do you know this in America?
 
Sometimes but not very often I saw several articles in US-newspapers about this problems, but it seems to me, the main problem is much more bigger as the americans at home believe.
 
What can we do and what shall Americas politicians do?
 
sorry for my bad grammar and thank you for sharing
