Who Asked You?
Here is an email I received in response to one of my essays.
Who Asked You? : Jerry Schwartz : firstname.lastname@example.org : 2009-11-05
what kind of moron makes a sweeping generalization like
why i despise most americans … and this is based on
personally knowing two out of millions … oh ya … plus all that info you get
from the media … you are mensa material let me tell ya … perhaps you should
walk a mile it might make you a little less condescending …… it must be
nice sitting way up north there looking down on the rest of us … just remember
that canada sits atop this wonderful country and if anything were to happen to us guess
who would come tumbling down next … and wouldnt you be crying for your momma then
… do us all a big favor if you're in the USA now please leave and dont let the
border hit you in the ass on the way out … and if you’re not — thank
I judge the majority of Americans on three grounds:
- The USA is a democracy. This means a majority of people support the actions of the
government, e.g. the two illegal wars you are involved in, torture, banned weapons.
Compared with the Viet Nam era, there is almost no opposition to your country behaving
worse that Nazi Germany. I hold the majority responsible for the actions of the
- News media, Internet postings, phone calls and emails. You Americans are almost to
a man pro-war and preposterously patriotic. You think you have a right as Americans to
stomp all over and exploit everyone else. You have such insanely inflated opinions of
- You personally fit the stereotype American I so despise.
The USA is by far the biggest threat to Canadian sovereignity. They
control us, lie to us, violate treaties, bully us economically, pollute our air and
rivers and hurt us economically with illegal actions. We don’t need American
military protection, especially from imaginary enemies like Afghanistan and Iraq.
