• Our Government IS, but WE the People can Change that.

    We say no to religious extremism, yet we support religious nut-jobs like Saudi Arabia and Israel.

    We tell countries to become democracies, yet we have had a hand in overthrowing many popularly elected governments, simply because they wouldn't give us access to their natural resources.

    We deride countries for poor human right standards, yet have arguably committed the gravest cases of human rights atrocities since the UN's inception.

    We preach about our great system of government and laws, but both are a joke. Our government is run by two parties who are sponsored by the same corporations, who went to the same elite schools since they were children, and who enact basically the same policies.

    The list goes on forever. We need to fix ourselves, and stop acting high and mighty to other countries.

  • Blocked YouTube Channel and Nazi-Website

    The United States has come down hard on North Korean suppression of personal liberties. YouTube allows TomoNewsUS to report how Kim Jong Un ordered the execution of 80 people from crimes ranging from extreme morality of possession of Bibles to pornography. The North Koreans are portrayed as brutal for this--but does the US really fulfill the first amendment?
    Meanwhile, Google and Bing remove access to the website, the Daily Stormer. YouTube also blocked a pro-Kim Jong Un account. Why is this not suppression of freedom of speech?

  • There are sufficient arguments to hate Americans.

    Violation of human rights in Iraq,Afghanistan by killing children and women.Self defined terrorism.Using the power similar to Nazi forces , fascists and communists.Using the united nations for their own world level political strategy.Biased behavior regarding Muslim countries and there disputes Kashmir,Palestine ,Sabras.US shall surly start third world war and blow herself..

  • It's pretty darn obvious...

    Even though I mostly highly respect the country, there's no hiding that America truly has contradicted itself more than any other country in the world, and it really gives them a bad name to some non-Americans. I don't even need to bring up examples, because many of the people on this side of the debate have already beat me to it.

    Those who say 'No' on this debate are clearly just ignorant, and those here on the 'Yes' side who obviously hold extreme views (evangelicals and anti-Americans, for example) are ironically betraying the whole idea of a country founded on complete freedom, peace and unity, which it is painfully far from, especially in this current political climate nowadays.

  • USA is the master of doublespeak

    - USA is a country that portrays itself as a country for the free yet it has systematic racism for most of its existence. Interracial wasn't even completely legal in many states until 1967.

    - USA speaks other "leading" the free world yet actively engages in sabotaging other countries' government if their leaders doesn't work with USA, whether democratic elected or not (e.G. Iran in 1979).

    - USA likes to boast about being the best country but it doesn't even take care of its own citizens, the 1% owns about 99% of the wealth in the country. Basically bankers run the country.

  • Solar Energy and Human Rights

    America constantly urges other countries to pursue the solar and other forms of renewable power. The problem with that is that we ourselves don't run on solar. How can a country, like India (where the population without power is more than the entire US population), be expected to pursue renewable power when hardly anyone here uses it. In addition, the United States has a long history of human rights violations and still ignores human rights. We preach to other countries, but a general who doesn't follow his own orders is useless (Art of War by Sun Tzu).

  • America is the biggest hypocrite of them all...

    How is Trump going to ban people from land that whites stole from Native Americans and tried to change the history of this land with their foul lies? The whites/Europeans are the "foreign" ones here. We started this land with our culture and the way in which we live and the Europeans had to come up and ruin it with their damn "westward expansion" and agriculture and even though some industrial inventions did help, it's just tearing this land down.- Native american Perspective

  • America hypocrisy beyond words

    The USA stood against Castro, yet at the same time supported the following dictators and regimes:
    Chile's Pinochet, Guatemala's military dictatorship, Nicaragua Samoza dynasty, Bolivia Hugo Banzer dictatorship, El Salvador military dictatorship,Paraguay Alfredostroessner regime. The middle east in the 1980's America backed the warlords that ripped the country apart, the Philippines Ferdinand Marcos, Panama's Noriega, the King of Saudi Arabia, Uzbekistan's Islam Karimov, Chad's Idriss Deby. The list is so freaking long that 50 words are not enough! Even the Pope can absolve your sins.

  • Fascist police state

    You cannot turn a blind eye to the oppression of the people by its own government! The United States oppression does not stop with imposing unjust and unfair laws. While there are people out there who blindly support the government and the police, they make only a small percentage of the population! We are property of the politicians who legislate laws in this country! There is no justice for the common man anymore! The police are corporate run cowards who will threaten you if you assert your rights! Soon enough there will be no more rights for the common people of this country! The police are racist scumbags that will treat you differently if you are not a white United States born citizen! And then the diplomats have the audacity to talk about human rights to other countries like they've mastered their own problems! I cannot imagine a soldier or military police going to iraq or afghanistan and behaving in this same manner as they do on their own soil! Hahahaha People here are just retarded, i just cannot explain their stupid culture it just has no identity or values! The constitution is not culture! It is about laws, thats the culture of this country the constitution

  • Not really, no.

    While we do support Middle Eastern countries, we support the government, not the idea.

    We have to throw out old governments, because they are ruthless dictatorships that won't go peacefully.

    While some war crimes may have been committed by the U.S., if we stroll over to the DPRK, or Syria, you will find worse.

    The system isn't a joke, we don't preach it all that much, and they aren't "sponsored' like some T.V. Show.

    If I had to say who was the most hypocritical, I might go with Russia for claiming to be better than the U.S., when they have had a horridly timed mass revolution, which turned into a terrible state, which eventually broke into many different countries, all while giving arms to the dictatorships while trying to keep good relations with the U.S.

  • Hahaha. Absolutely not.

    I dare say Iran is far more hypocritical, claiming a desire for peace and cooperation, while launching provocative attacks against minority factions of Islam and Israel. Russia, also, could be held to the same standard, as it preaches peace on one hand and ships weapons to radicalized faction on the other.

    China condemns US imperialism, while starving it's own citizens and encouraging infanticide of female infants with it's "1 child rule". It is even more hypocritical for buying out US debt, in an attempt to financially enslave the very people it claims enslave the world financially.

  • Middle Easter culture

    Is the inventor of hypocrisy.. Even the religion of Islam is a contradiction to its name.. They want justice but they are unjust to evn their own women.. They want freedom.. But the freedom they want is the freedom to oppress.... They even manage to put the words ' honor' and 'killing 'in the same phrase... Their way of liberty is to give more power to the already strong (men) at the cost of the weak (women)... As an 'Arab' woman, myself, I say that being Arab is not a culture but a character flaw that I am proud to not support. America is only a hypocrite when it lets these people practice their unjust ways on its ground!

  • The most, the least, the best and the worst- nonsense

    The never ending need to declare what is most or least, best or worst is getting old. We, as a nation, are unique in many ways and so are many other nations. It is arrogant to believe we hold the supreme position. We have accomplished much, learned much and, at times, failed to admit and correct our shortcomings. We have made mistakes, so who doesn't. Hypocrisy is something all governments and nations exhibit from time to time.
    The colonies breaking away from England formed a Nation, a good thing.
    America tolerating England’s occupation of Ireland is not a good thing. Yes, we have made mistakes and other nations will seize the opportunity to call foul.
    It is beyond question, America is a generous nation and has accomplished a lot in a very short time. Many nations have relied on our generosity and support.
    The framers of this nation provided a great document as the foundation. Americans should be proud yet not arrogant. Americans should be proud but still vigilant. The Constitution is America; it speaks to the rights and freedom of its people. This nation should extend the same courtesy to other nations. Simply, the entire world does not need to be like us, think like us, worship like us. All nations are unique and, in the absence of acts of aggression to oppress others, should remain so.

  • No I doubt it.

    While the US is hypocritical at times for a country, that does not mean they are the worst at it. I think every country as a little but of hypocriticalness going on behind the scenes, or right in our faces. It is just easier to see the flaws in your own country than others.
