Do you even understand it? It seems to be a mainly American thing. The crimes of most of the world are at least as bad. At the same time, we are the world’s biggest force for good. There would be no freedom in the world had it not been for us. Let’s take a look at a few countries who do not widely disrespect or burn their flag.
Germany. Two world wars, tens of millions of dead, fascism, racial purity, and the genocide of 6 million people.
Portugal. Shipping nearly six million captured Africans and shipped to slavery.
Spain. Conquistadors and slavery.
The Netherlands. Slavery
Japan. Genocide, Torture, Empire, Slavery, severe racism
China. Good Lord. Too many to mention.
Cuba. Mass murder, slavery.
The entire Caribbean. Slavery controlled by the European powers.
Need I go on? Why would anyone consider the U.S. to be inferior to any of these? These countries do not seem to be involved in the same level of self hate, willing to bring their countries down because of past sins. Why are we? I know the answer. Does anybody else?
