Unpopular Opinion!
I ******* love my country. The majority of us are not fat assholes, your country has its fair share of cunts, too.

That's got to be the most popular "unpopular opinion" I've ever seen. Obvious thumb whore.

Go **** yourself.

I didn't know that liking America was back in.
You see, I'm not a bandwagon-hopping faggot, so I've stood by America the whole time.
And still, there are large amounts that still talk **** on it.

Go **** yourself.

I don't think there really is a bandwagon. A lot of people simply don't like what the U.S. represents theoretically nor in practice, and for good reason. I am one of them, along with pretty much everyone I know and politics never entered the equation in how or why I befriended them.

My guess is that the reason the 'hate' as you call it has kind of died down is because people, like me, grow tired of trying to argue their points when the opposition consists almost entirely of pictures of bald eagles on the American flag that garners dozens of thumbs or arguments born of patriotism and kindergarten propaganda that simply don't make sense.

I don't mean to offend, I just felt I had to correct you in thinking that the only reason people expressed their disgust with the U.S. on funnyjunk was a bandwagon effect.

Just about every American loves America to a sickening degree, and the majority of FJ users are American. I doubt you're stupid enough to not have known that, so I still stand by my thumb whore accusation.

Canada masterace here, and now let me tell ya: Last summer, I went to America. People we're nicer than people in my home town. I think that if you want to get the fat, dumb and mean stereotipical american, you should get to the middle of the USA, or around there. no offence, middle land people.

My Canadian step-dad, when I asked how he felt about the "all canadians are nice" stereotype said that it's really stupid because he, having been born and raised in Canada, knows a lot more than the random Dick-riders of Canada (i.e americans trying to sound cool for the Canadians, when really canadians don't give a **** .)
He told me this exactly "Yeah, I'd say that's ******* dumb. We invented hockey, we're naturally scrappers."

No, no, the hate for America bandwagon is over. The hate for hate for America bandwagon bandwagon is in now. Your opinion is rather popular now.
User avatar #312 to #304 - yorker (09/20/2013) [-]
I'd say it's split 50/50.
Glad it's nearing an end, so many of these guys were uninformed assholes.

It still is. I've always been patriotic, I stood my ground on this opinion a lot even when the hating america bandwagon was at it's highest

May I ask why you love your country?
User avatar #247 to #236 - yorker (09/20/2013) [-]
You may.
I appreciate my country.
I appreciate the men and women that have died defending it.
I appreciate the laws set forth by our founding fathers to ensure the best in life for the future generations of Americans.
I know the government is wrong in many cases, but the government shouldn't represent the country in this case.
This country has been through some great and some poor leaders, the decisions of a corrupt government only makes me more patriotic, I feel that our country provides a fair opportunity for all.
I also believe in free-enterprise.
I think that the poor man that works to put bread on his table instead of blaming those around him and everyone but himself and decides to get up off of his ass and make something of himself is a man to be admired, and I believe that that man deserves every penny he earns through his hard labor.
This is why I do not believe in socialism.
There are many ignorant people who don't know of life outside this country and assume it's so much better everywhere else.

The fact that I at times have to live in fear of my country's government deeply upsets me, but it gives me all the more reason to stand by it to help make things better than complain about how much the current situation sucks.

Of all the countries, I am glad I live in the one that I do.

Hope this gives you an idea of why.
I really hope this petty rivalry between two amazing countries(In their own right)
can stop.
Every real brit I've encountered has never cared about our politics.
They're smart enough to realize that different sized countries, with different populations, and different economies need different ruling methods.
(Which is why my Canadian/British-immigrant step-father and I think it's stupid when people say things like "well socialist ideals work in Canada and Britain, America should use them"
He, having lived in canada most his life even said the only reason it works there is because Canada is still a developing country.

Well, fair enough. I personally have a lot of faith in socialism, but not so much that it makes me blind to its flaws. Still, the U.S. and its economics, politics and social matters is something that interests me, so thanks for your answer. Also, your stepdad and you are entitled to your opinions of course, but it's often very stimulating and self-developing to try harder to understand the other end of the argument than how hard you stick to your own ideals.

it really ******* annoys me how many people of today's generation of America just straight up hate America. if this is what America's care-takers are going to be like in the next few years, i weep on be-half of Lady Liberty and Uncle Sam

I know, I know, a rare occurrence indeed.

inb4 liberals getting buttmad, tell me my country is horrible.
User avatar #370 to #201 - ICEDgrunge (09/20/2013) [-]
I'm quite the libtard but I'll tell you right now, the country we share is quite amazing.
User avatar #374 to #370 - yorker (09/20/2013) [-]
I honestly get really happy when the two parties share common ground.
I just posted that because a lot of liberals really really like to talk **** on America.

(Seriously, my aunt thinks she's the **** and she said something along the lines of "Americans are so fat it's disgusting." wtfyoustupidbitch.jpg when I see that her best friend is fat, just hopping on the bandwagon.)

Anyways, I am glad people like Joy Behar exist so that democrats have someone on their side to hate and them and the right wing can agree on something.
Same reason that I'm glad both of them hate the WBC.

To be honest, I wouldn't even consider myself conservative. Although I share many of their ideals and outlooks on money (I think that the fact that people think people who start their businesses don't deserve the money they make off of said business is ridiculous, so yeah, I support free enterprise to-the-max.)
User avatar #377 to #374 - ICEDgrunge (09/20/2013) [-]
I completely understand where you're coming from.
No matter how shortsighted this belief may seem, if you disdain your country as vehemently as most liberals do these days, then I sincerely believe they should find somewhere else to live. It's a downright disgraceful existence. I have grievances with the U.S, everyone does, but I don't hate every fibre of it's being outright. That's **** .

I've met people just like your aunt as well, they're completely full of themselves, to the point of an egotistical ******* obesity. They'd eat their own **** if it'd make them less American.

And I completely agree with you with Behar. This country needs to meet in the middle, you and I may not agree on some things, but compromise is the key to existing contently, and if you're so hungry to have everything your way, then you shouldn't have any kind of power.

I completely understand you with business, and I also feel your same sentiments with how I would consider myself liberal, I really wouldn't, except when it comes to a few key things. My father was born with a genetic spinal disorder called Spinal Stenosis, which essentially made him start life with a degraded spine, it was very narrow and fragile. Shortly before I was born he ended up seriously injuring his neck and spinal column and has never been able to work since, we made due's with Social Security and that was our saving grace.

2 times in teen years I found myself homeless as well. If it wasn't for the programs that the Federal Government provided, I would have had to live on the streets of New York in the middle of January. Wouldn't have been fun.

Anyways, that's the main reason why I find Government aid to people in such desperate situations necessary. I've seen the people that take welfare and food stamps, and I'll be damned to ever call them freeloaders. They all had their story, they all had their shame, and they all needed what they received, they wouldn't have lived without it.

Well that's my story.
User avatar #381 to #377 - yorker (09/20/2013) [-]
The thing is though, I support welfare.
But for people like you.
People that are willing to get up off of their asses, people that see it as a little help from the government rather than a source of income and something to live off of the rest of their lives.

Thanks man.

Really, it just gets such a bad rap from (Mostly Americans) who claim they're Ultra-intelligent brits because they're dickriders to anybody who is from another country.

Kind of like what weabos are to the Japanese.
