The rampant anti-americanism of the last decade or so, I feel that this song is entirely apropos. Especially since the hate mostly comes from demagog soft-Leftist elements of social-democrat countries such as my own. Makes me want to puke sometimes. . .
I've now traveled to 38 different countries, so I consider that I've been around. And every time I hear the same old tirades, here and abroad, I always find it kind of hilarious that my interlocutor has almost always never set foot in the United States, nor do they know any Americans. So all they have to go by is the anti-USA propaganda going around.
The majority of the best friends I've made while traveling abroad are Americans. Most of them are intelligent, open-minded, fun-loving people. Yes, they like to drink and talk rather loudly when they're drunk. So what? It's the same with Aussies, Germans, Spanish, Italians, etc. To think that every single American citizen is a warmongering, ignorant, religious inbred fuckwit from the Bible Belt just shows how people know nothing about the USA.
Too many American travelers feel the need to make excuses about being American. That's bullshit! They should be proud of who they are. Though the USA aren't perfect in any shape or form, it's still a much better country than most.
And this song is a great example of that. I'm told they teach the lyrics in history classes. Wish we had something similar in Canada. . . Oh wait. . . That's true, we ain't got nothing that warrants a song.
