Top Ten Worst Things to Say to a Proud American

On my next visit to America, I'll be sure to restrain myself from letting these out. If you happen to be in the States when you meet a 6'4" nerdy teenager visiting from England who says any of these, you'll know for certain who it is.

The Top Ten

1 If you wanted freedom with fewer terms and conditions, you should've stayed with Great Britain.

"All of them are idiots." Actually, a lot of people have immigrated in the past, so because of that, there could be any number of intelligent people. So what you seem to be implying is that if you are an American citizen you are an idiot, and also, the English people were the ones who went to America. So every American genius is also an idiot for being American? That makes no sense. Can't disagree with the fact that Americans have less freedom than claimed, and it's not just specifically America. No country really deserves to be called stupid because of major past mistakes. That's all I'm saying. There are stupid Americans, as there are stupid Irishmen, stupid Japanese people, and stupid Englishmen. There's always going to be someone in a country that is stupid, obviously, and some people have more than others, but it's prejudice to say that all people of any country are idiots.

I think Great Britain should have kept America. Heck, the Americans didn't have a good army, it's just that the Brits LET them have their land. If Britain did keep them, America could be in a lot better shape. Plus, Americans have no freedom anyway, and all of them are idiots. Good list, PositronWildhawk.

That was a MASSIVE mistake on their part, but Yanks will be Yanks... - Britgirl

Is it July the Fourth yet? Yes? No? OK, I'll wait. - PositronWildhawk

2 God bless this 'special place'.

God bless this Special Snowflake.

3 And for my side-order, I'll have the 800lb burger, with one kind of cheap hot cheese, and a new gun.

Personally, I can wait to go through the drive-thru at Wendy's to casually say this. - PositronWildhawk

4 I've always seen the Confederate Flag as a work of art.

Not surprising, as it bears a certain resemblance to the Union Jack.

It’s a racist symbol - blackflower

5 Let's see you win a war by yourself.

How about: You stop bullying every Brit on TheTopTens

How about:
"We Brits beg forgiveness for having hanged your patriots, burned your farms, slaughtered your women and children, and having our way with your livestock, BEFORE being TWICE unceremoniously trounced into total submission by your ragtag army of 'peasants'? "
(Boy, those Scots-Irish have a nasty habit of getting deep under Limey rinds, don't they? "

6 (Looking at U.S. Flag) Oh, look! Now there are 50 special stickers on your report card!
7 I've always seen this country as sexist. To you, a full stop is a period.
8 Who's your favourite president since 1981?

It is the worst thing you could say to an American because of the you in favorite. - Songsta41

Bush's least favourite vegetable, I.E. his son. - PositronWildhawk

9 Have you lost a whole gram? You're making great progress.

I'm American, but this list is pretty funny - Ajkloth

We use the customary system. - Songsta41

I'm American, but yeah, I'm just repeating what Ajkloth is saying. - funnyuser

10 I guess you needed a lot of land to fit 315 million tubbies in.

Well, then...
Maybe we'll just take your dreary little parking lot.
Anyway, it's about time you paid us back for pulling your chestnuts outta the fire in WWII.


The Newcomers

? You're so bad you had to get the French to help with your architecture

The Contenders

11 Obama is a good president.

No one supports Obama. Poor Obama.

So offensive have a big fat vote from me

I thought he was - blackflower

You don't want to be in my fist range and say that. - GHOSTbirdnatureLOVER

12 September 11th, today is a good day

Bruh, They go ballistic over this, even added an Ice Cube pun

13 Shut up

I should be used to the prejudice lists on here...I'm worried that Americans will try to retaliate. Then everyone will be hypocritical if they try to defend themselves, unless they live somewhere else.

Americans just don't know when to shut up about their pathetic country.

Funny, since they find it so hard to shut up sometimes. - PositronWildhawk

"Americans just don't know when to shut up about their pathetic country."
And from just which utopian duchy do YOU hail, comrade?

14 America: the centre of the world and the centre of world's problems.

The center of the world's ENVY.

15 It's football, not soccer!

It's rounders, not baseball!

16 NASA isn't all American, the Germans had to help you get off the ground.

Think about it, the Americans stole money from China. Thus giving them the funds to pay the Germans to do such a thing. Their fuel consumption must've been terrible.

17 I need to take a piss

But I do need to...

18 F*** America
19 American chocolate is poison

Milky Way bars they are like those horrible UK 80s ones till we changed them. I have an older sibling that knows about the UK 80s ones.

20 You're primitive technology has advanced considerably for a British colony.
21 Why can't you talk proper English? It's a bit annoying really.

It would be funny if the American answered, "I don't speak English, I speak American! " Although you would need to find a stupid American for that. A very stupid person.

The "proper English" word is SPEAK.

23 America is a continent not a country.
24 Your music sucks
25 Americans believe in imaginary friends.
26 Donald Trump is a good president
27 It’s kilometers not miles
