Only those in the third world truly fight oppression, you Eurofags that think you're fighting oppression or corruption or whatever the fuck are actually just a bunch of unemployed high school/college/primary (yes, primary) dropouts who sit around and yell "FUCK THE POLICE"

thats fun for you too say, when most of europeans posess a college degree while you americans not as much, mainly because your super awesome country prefers to invade other countries than ease the education system in the nation where wealthy families have allways the upper hand. The same with healthcare. Too capitalistic.


But about the fighting oppression and corruption thing, america is without a doubt a country with some corrupt features, the ammount of lobying done is immense. Just look at your presidentials, god so much marketing the ammount of money spent in that.. and lots of it just saying bad things about the oponent.

What about guantanamo? holding people without permiting them to go to court to prove their inocence, that goes against all(that i think) your country stands for. it is, something i would expect from the ex-USSR or even China but the US is just weird.

And yes people are unemployed, in spain alone 30% of the population is unemployed. The same happened in america during the crash, it hasn't been easy for many. the problem is, many enterprizes are closing because they cannot get the bank to lend them money, the price of lending is to high and most banks don't accept to lend, in ireland i remember hearing a guy saying he couldn't even ask to lend 1000€, which is probably arround $1200, to buy a car, he had a job everything in him was ok, and the bank refused saying it was too risky.
The same happened in my home town a huge company closed, not because it didn't have sales, but because the banks made too strict lending policies and they couldn't get one and still maintain a profit.

It's beeing though here, but we'll come arround. And maybe there will finally exist a unified European Country.

E és tu o paneleiro.

"Too capitalistic."

The problem here is that America and Europe have two very conflicting views.

Europeans - Mix of capitalist/socialist principles. Some countries more socialist/capitalist than others.
Americans - Capitalism all the way.

Beat up on America all you want, we just think differently than you do.

I find it hilarious when people from Europe call refer to themselves as EUROPEANS (The continent) then argue and down talk on Americans about America (A Country). It really makes me feel damn proud to be a United States Marine when I have a WHOLE CONTINENT bitching and complaining about the latest 20-30 years of our existence but we don't constantly bring up the fact that almost EVERY SINGLE Genocide was caused by European countries or influenced. The fact that you guys went to war with each other and for material wealth for THOUSANDS of years before America existed. The fact when America became a global power there wasn't one thing the Europeans didn't ask our help with. The fact that Americans had to clean up and help the genocides caused by EUROPEAN countries. Yup. Those darn Americans. Giving European millions of dollars each after WW2 to reconstruct yourselves and get back on your feat. For keeping out Stalin and his LARGEST GENOCIDE EVER (European country/ Asian Country). For spending millions sending care packages to Germany even though they attacked anything that moved and wasn't white excluding the Asians that helped them (Who germany was going to invade if they were successful at WW2). Them damn Americans liberating France from the Nazi rule (Fuck you Europeans. It was AMERICA that won at D-day. We lost a shit load of good Marines because FRANCE surrendered and you guys LET the Nazi party just TAKE countries before you fought them. Yup, FUCK America for ALL THAT. Yup, America is the worst country compared to an ENTIRE CONTINENT. Seriously Europe. You guys should be thanking us for all our help instead of calling us invaders and war savages. I swear, Europe is that one kid that gets bullied all the time and when someone helps that kid out they later go "I didn't even need your help, Ass hole."

Basically, I'm talking about how stupid Europeans can be about Americans. Americans LOVE Europe. We think of Europe as this magical place. Even though we think of you guys as amazing people (Now) and back then we saved your hides countless times you guys think us Americans are TERRIBLE people. That we all hate Muslims and all we want is war. I'm in the Marine Corps and I do NOT want War. I joined to keep good people safe and help them get home. I seriously do not understand why Europe hates America SO MUCH when we do SO MUCH for you guys. I still love Europe but you and along with the other rotten bunch of the group make Europeans look like terrible people.
#89 to #56 - anonymous (11/25/2012) [-]
While you're a part of the self proclaiming idiots who thinks that just because America won wars fighting alongside or with europe in the past makes todays Americans superior?

Man, your ignorance exceeds my expectations.

It's just as if i would say that America was built by the poor peasants who couldn't make it in europe, you are not a people, you're the leftover trash Europe spit out. Now lets look at all the stains on your history, you talk about one countrys genocide as if all europeans was responsible for it when America had one of the most despicable Human slave trades the world has ever seen. How you treated your natives, how America used two atom bombs during WWII killing houndreds of thousands innocent civilians, how your country segregated black people from white long after WWII and hitlers or should i say the "european racism" as you would call it were gone. How America went to war against several countries in the middle east based of the actions of one extremist group, and still continue fighting there, with the aid of the so called bully victim "europe". How 50% are overweight in USA and how almost half the population doesn't believe in the theory of evolution (fucking idiots). That's just what i got from the top of my head, and USA is only 236 years old with one of the filthiest historys the world has ever seen. Europeans have been conquering and building empires for thousands of years. These are the reasons that makes us Europeans better than Americans, so now you can't joke about us or insult us because our history is better. Americans are some racist war-hungry inbred trashpeople.

Now do you see how stupid you look?
User avatar #114 to #89 - Lulzilla (11/25/2012) [-]
Do we even have to bring up the vikings, Or the Nazi Empire, Or the Soviet Union who (Like I said before) Had the second BIGGEST Genocide in recorded history only to be topped by China. Who do you think started the diamond industry? Europe. How do they treat the people in Africa mining the diamonds? Watch the Blood Diamond documentary and find out. Hell, Pretty much ANY place were Europe was getting raw materials over seas treated the natives like CRAP. America has THE best colleges and universities in the ENTIRE WORLD second only to Britain with the Oxford university. Our public schools are lacking behind but that doesn't derail the fact that with education we're pretty damn good at it. Also you can't just put a number on something you haven't researched. America is a nation built on immigrants and this nation became the STRONGEST nation in the entire world. We could triumph any other nation if they went to war with us. One on one? We would win. You europeans take EVERYTHING for granted and never say thank you. Hell, When we saved Kuwait Europeans were slandering us saying "OH, It was only oil. America cares only about Oil!" when in reality. Most of the oil being sold in the Middle East goes to EUROPE and ASIA. Most of Americas oil comes from Canada and various other nations other then the Middle east. The Middle east gives us about 10% of oil that we use. Everything we're doing in the Middle east profits the Europeans the most since you guys get all the oil and resources and YOU guys aren't losing troops by the thousands because you don't want to buck up and send your own damn troops. You think America will take care of everything because we coddle you guys like babies. You genocides in Slavic countries could of been stopped if the other European countries did something instead of insinuate America would take care of it. Eventually WE DID because you guys didn't. Your welcome Europe for all the shit we do for you.
User avatar #101 to #89 - Lulzilla (11/25/2012) [-]
Are you seriously that uneducated in history? Only a dipshit like you would think that I was ONLY included wars.
No, America has helped Europe in thousands of ways. After WW2 America sent MILLIONS in war relief effort over a war YOU GUYS STARTED because you didn't know how to properly deal with the Nazis. During WW2 it was AMERICA who stormed the beaches of Normandy. Sure other countries were there but the majority were American. Good honest Americans fighting in a war that they weren't involved in until the Japanese bombed us. Vietnam was a low point in America but what country doesn't have low points? What pisses me off the most is when people assume that America is at WAR WITH Afghanistan or Iraq. No we're at war with the TONS of different extremists. Do you really think we're only fighting the Taliban or A.Q? They're the primary groups we're at war with but they're not the only ones. Get your damn facts correct. I've been to Afghan and Iraq, Have you? If not then don't you say another damn word about it because YOU DON'T KNOW. The situation with Japan, We HAD to bomb them. If you knew a thing or two about the battles in the Pacific they didn't go down without a fight. The Japanese literally fought to the LAST MAN. Even civilians would fight with bamboo sticks or they killed themselves. We prevented a SLAUGHTER of MILLIONS of Japanese and Allied forces. We had a slave trade that BRITAIN STARTED. The Native Americans were wiped out by the BRITISH. We simply carried those principles when we became our own nations since the first Americans were European. Sorry we took the bloodlust you guys had. Plus our slavery isn't anything compared to the terrible things European countries did to each other and other nations. Look at Britain and India. Look at Britain and the Native Americans. Look at Britain and Ireland/Scotland. Look at Britain and the Asian countries. These are just things BRITAIN did.

Oh my lord you're actually dumber than i thought (and I didn't excactly think much of you.)

What i wrote was so that you could see how fucking stupid it is to use something a nation have or haven't acheived to defend how their population behaves today.

Many Europeans don't like Americans because a lot of you are ignorant, narsissistic, selv proclaimed and way over patriotic, like you've just proved that you are aswell. You attack like rabbid dogs to defend your precious america at any chance you get, you can't accept critizism, even the slightest of it. For example; "hmm, alot of Americans are really overweight, hey guys how do you think you'll solve that problem?" "WHAT THE FUCK JUST BECUASE SOME OF US ARE A BIT OVERWEIGHT THAT DOESN'T MEAN YOU CAN JUDGE US ALL! REMEMBER WWII WE SAVED YOU FUCKING EUROTRASH ASS. IS THAT YOUR FUCKING FLAG ON THE MOON? NO DIDN'T THINK SO. Gosh fuckin europeans can't leave USA alone for a second, why are they always talking so much crap about us? ungreatfull shits."

Now, xon't start ranting history again, okay? That's not the point here.

It's really pathetic. Your a continent and you feel the need to make yourselves feel better is by comparing yourself to a country.

WE ARE NOT COMPARING; HOW ARE YOU THIS STUPID? IT'S NOT ABOUT WHAT THE COUNTRIES HAVE DONE IT'S ABOUT HOW YOUR POPULATION ACT IN MEDIA AND HOW IGNORANT YOU ACT TOWARDS THE REST OF THE WORLD.

I'm gratefull for how America gave us loans to rebuilds after ww2, but that's not the point, I can't believe you can't get that through your thick skull, your country may have done this and that but that doesn't change shit about how you and many other Americans act, which is stupidly, thus we make jokes about it and you lose your shit, which i think is ironic.

Also I'm over halfway through my masters degree in Electronic and Electrical Engineering, so shut your big loud american mouth.

I hope you understand how hypocritical your being and how ignorant and arrogant you are.
America is probably one of the most helpful countries in the entire world. The amount of help we give to other countries is insane. We've had scrapes with other countries and what not but that doesn't make us bad people. You cannot group American citizens all together just because you've seen bad news feed. Hell, just like almost every media in every country there is going to be bull shit. They don't tell the truth the entire time. Also America is a proud country. If you don't like it then of damn well. Just because we love our country doesn't mean you can hate us for it.
P.S If your halfway in your Masters Degree then shouldn't you be busy doing something more important then having a discussion with someone on FunnyJunk? If I was your employer and I saw you doing shit like that, You'd be fired in a heart beat. (By the way, I actually AM an Employer. I have my own business. Granted I can't run it at the moment with me being in the Marine Corps.) Next time you want someone to fight you wars look somewhere else then the BIG LOUD AMERICAN.
#480 to #471 - anonymous (11/25/2012) [-]
You still don't get it, it's kinda amusing.

We make jokes about what we see in the media that potrays Americans, and American media has way more bulklshit than any other countries, thus more jokes. For example, Fox news is a fucking joke, The Kardashians, Jersey Shore and many, many others, such as this content (the whole black friday rage, everything else about your precious Murrica is irrelevant.

Also just because I'm a student that means I can't spend some of my free time on the internet? Who says I'm at school or work? Again, your ignorance stands out.
Also it's funny how proud you are to be in the marine corpse, I served in the Norwegian Navy aswell but afterwards it's back to the real life with no priviliges, while you're just a freeloading self rightous dipshit.

Lol, Okay. So your telling me our media is complete bull shit when England spent millions of tax payers dollars for a damn wedding. England has one of the worst media's in the world. If your going to judge America by it's recent media instead of our History then you shouldn't say anything because your opinion is invalid JUST like the media we have.

Also being in the Norwegian Navy isn't anything special. Whoopdiedoo. Your Norwegian and your on a damn boat. I'm actually fighting. I've been shot before. My left Thigh and my right arm. You guys aren't doing anything for anyone. You send a couple troops to help. Big whoop. My comrades and I are the ones fighting so your beloved Europe can have it's oil wells safe and the people of Afghan liberated from the Taliban and A.Q. So don't bring up any of your military experiences since it's invalid.

Israelis started migrating into Palestine illegally and many countries didn't care cause they felt sympathy for the Jews after the Holocaust. Eventually when the numbers of Israelis increased, they forced the Palestinians out of their country and slowly started become the Jewish state, Israel. U.S. started supporting Israel for intelligence on Arab targets, you can guess why. About 5-8 Million dollars a day, I believe, go into supporting the Israeli military, and those rockets being launched into Palestine, were probably made in the U.S. so technically we were majorly involved in the recent conflicts, but you don't hear about it because of the controlled media by the Zionists. It's all fucked up and it's all politics but it really sucks when Palestine is being portrayed as the bad guy when really it's the Israelis who forced out the Palestinians for selfish gains...
User avatar #176 to #115 - durkadurka ONLINE (11/25/2012) [-]
Israel was created by the UN from territory controlled by the British. The idea was to give the Jewish people their own land so they wouldn't be exterminated again.

When you're lobbing rockets into another country with no regard for what you're hitting (including your OWN people) you're the bad guy. Now obviously this doesn't apply to all arabs in the area, just the elements of Hamas.

Our tendency to send money to other countries is another discussion (but I think we and most of America would have similar opinions on the matter).

Hamas shoots a rocket to Israel (who rolled over, what members of Hamas used to called their homes, in tanks and forcing thousands of people to relocate) which lands in the desert and hurts no one.

Israel responds by shooting back at Gaza city, killing hundreds of civilians in the process, and wounding hundreds and hundreds more.

Hamas is not Gaza or Palestine. Hamas is an organization, Palestine is a nation.

No actually the arabs instigated almost every conflict with Israel. Every time they've tried to attack Israel, they've ended up worse than before.

And then when Israel tries to be decent and gives some land back (ie the Gaza Strip), they're repaid with rockets lobbed randomly into their country.

Yeah it's the damn Jews.

"In 1967, as a result of the Six-Day War, Israel gained control of the West Bank (Judaea and Samaria), East Jerusalem, the Gaza strip and the Golan Heights. Israel also took control of the Sinai Peninsula, but returned it to Egypt as part of the 1979 Israel–Egypt Peace Treaty."

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Israel

If you really didn't know this, I'd be questioning everything I knew about Israel.

And who started the Six-Day War? Israel.

The side that initiates a conflict isn't automatically at fault. The Israeli initiation was preemptive in response to the forces of various countries massing near their borders. Before conflict began Israel warned the closure of the Straits of Tiran would be considered an act of war. They considered the Strait an international waterway, a stance backed by the Western Powers. Also note that on May 27th 1967, Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser stated "Our basic objective will be the destruction of Israel. The Arab people want to fight."

The conflict was not some Israeli sneak attack on unsuspecting neighbors. It was a build-up of tensions and troops until the point of war.

This stuff is very easy to research by the way.

Israel got their land in 1948, the Arabic groups declared war on them the same day. They've been fighting for that land since the first fucking day. Cut the Jews some slack, they're surrounded by assholes who can't let them have one strip of land in the desert.

I understand the Palestinian argument, but time and time again Israel has tried to attain peaceful measures, which were met by Arab attacks from multiple countries, defeating them, and then getting called the assholes even after giving them back fairly attained territory by conquest.

Does that term annoy people, "fair by conquest"? That is how every nation in history has been formed. Get over it.

Ugh, nothing like a bunch of self-entitled teenagers with a shit ton of ignorance talking about politics/economics.

Lol, Europeans fighting the corrupt government? More like the governments that Europeans people wanted. Only problem is that they have begun to go broke and can't continue to keep up. So what do you people do? You decide to destroy everything in your sites and throw a noble label on it. Sounds a bunch like our little Occupy Wall Street (please don't get me started on those absolute idiots).

Hell, what am I even ranting on? I'm sure most of you probably need to get back to your 40' HD with your double latte at your side. Lol the worst part of everything is knowing what the future will be like and most of the jackasses who claim to be "educated" can't even comprehend it.

Not to mention the asinine comment "Palestinians fighting for their homeland," as if they are noble freedom fighters. "Freedom fighters" who, because they are so morally superior to Israel, rejoice when Israeli children are killed by their rockets. And furthermore, Judea is not the palestinian's homeland, the Jews were there thousands of years before islam even existed.

But how can you really expect some stupid, shit-head teenager to have any clue about the history or the conflict in the region with public schools and news media like ours?

I love how all of a sudden everyone is against Israel. Like the last 400 years hasn't happened. You want to know why Israel fights so hard? If you went to the Holocaust Museum there, you would know. Israel became a country where Jews can go without persecution from the rest of the world. But the Muslim radicals in Palestine didn't like the idea of Jews being able to live together in peace.

Well you gotta remember Israel isn't innocent either; tell them to stop the embargo on Gaza and the construction of settlements in the West Bank and then maybe the other side would listen a bit more (Or at least lose more of their creditably).
User avatar #285 to #281 - makethingsworse (11/25/2012) [-]
Israel is far from innocent. I just hate seeing people say they are the "bad guys". It's not true. It's war. There is no bad side, people need to realize that.
User avatar #299 to #285 - darthblam (11/25/2012) [-]
Ehh.. there is usually a bad side in most conflicts... a peoples' motives usually aren't what make them bad though.. it's their means.
Murdering innocent civilians for example. You even mentioned the Holocaust, you seriously can't say that Nazi Germany's side was pretty bad in WW2.
User avatar #302 to #299 - makethingsworse (11/25/2012) [-]
The Holocaust was evil, the war was not. It was motivated by a people that felt victimized by the rest of the world. I can understand why they did what they did. But genocide can never be rationalized.

No need to be a cunt about it. That anon is correct. They don't give a shit about Jews living together. They're pissed because high-horse countries took land from them and gave it to the jews. You'd be pissed to if countries that thought they were better than you took some of your land and gave it to people just because they went through some shit. Especially if that country has a history of blaming ALL of your people for the actions the radicals take and start drone bombing the shit out of your homes and killing your children.

...Israel was given to the Jews by the British. Yeah, I'd be pissed off, but most of the fighting is religiously motivated.

You say this like it's a bad thing. I'd much rather live in a nation with an obesity epidemic than a hunger problem. This only proves that America is the most stable and wealthy of these nations, despite having tons and tons of debt.

As an australian I don't get the whole black friday thing, why do yous need to bombard the stores at midnight to get things slightly cheaper. I have seen news reports of fights, beatings, and even deaths of people being trampled by the rush or murdered. Is it really worth it? This is a case of some americans having horribly fucked up priorities.
#257 to #252 - jrondeau **User deleted account** (11/25/2012) [-]
To start, it's not slightly cheaper. It's a hell of a lot cheaper (I got something for $34 that was $80 the day before at a local department store, but didn't go during the rush) than any other days in the year. A lot of people go to try and get things for Christmas at ridiculously low prices, and a lot go just for the adrenaline rush (don't personally understand this one, but it seems to be reason for a lot of people to go). Yes, some people get trampled each year, but they're just getting picked off by natural selection if they're willing to risk getting mixed up in a literal stampede of crazed shoppers.   
   
I don't personally see the appeal in trying to get through raging mobs of people to go shopping, but to each their own I suppose. And don't be so quick to shit on Americans for this, I'm sure that if Australia had sweeping Black Friday sales you would have the same thing happening over there.

I said SOME americans have fucked up priorities, I didn't generalize and shit on all of america. When I see images or videos of black friday rushes it literally looks like sheep being herded into a pen. It's a horrible idea and not worth the lives (really sad I have to say that) that it costs. All over buying some material goods at cheaper prices, good god

I don't understand these, sure there are some dumbasses who do this, but I believe in EVERY country there are positives and negatives, some might not see the negatives or positives of other countries because of cultural differences. Everyone shut up if he has a problem with the black friday stuff (so do I) let him be. I think America is stupid for this stuff but I don't think America is stupid. I think Europe's sense of humor is weird and immature but I don't think Europe is immature. OP just pulled a classic media trick that's all.
