Now, I'm not saying all of them do, it just seems like that.  So why do they dislike us so much?

That's absolutely incorrect, we hate everyone equally.

We don't. What makes you think we do?
We tend to be equal opportunity haters.

American's expect everyone else to cater to them.
Haven't you heard of the 'Ugly American'? (It's a book and a movie.)
Besides the U.S. of A. has left the U.K. to hang out and dry during two World Wars and stepped in to save the bacon at the last minute each time.
Then there's the corruption of the Queen's English.
And, the class distinction that the Americans aren't into.
To add to all that, when there is a military operation going on the American's take the leadership role and subordinate the allied forces.

I don't hate any American, infact, I'm extremely jealous of you.

 

I'm stuck here in the sh*tty UK.

 

I'd much rather be living in Las vegas, Beverly Hills, Palmdale or Palm Springs.

They used tea...and put it in the ocean.

 

No one enrages British when it comes to tea. Even we Indians hate those bastards.

Most white people despise how most Native Americans have been milking the American Government. They get free land, money, etc. There is a useless waste of air who's Native, and he got 13 Acres of land for nothing. Why some Natives are happy to take things from the "illegal" Americans is literally the eighth wonder of the world. Just accept that we white Europeans were assholes, but we don't have any control over what our ancestors did.

 

It could've gone MUCH worse. Call me a racist, but jesus, grow the f*ck up already. Most white people are UPSET that they stole the Native's land. They need to grow up and be kind to people, and people will be kind right back.

 

You've got to give respect to get it.

Given how much American culture us Brits consume it's surely safe to say we don't hate Americans.  Anyone who claims they do is probably in denial.  Personally some of my favourite things are American.  I think they're great for the most part.

 

Perhaps people confuse American politicians with America as a whole.

I don't think many or a majority of them dislike Americans. I have the impression that they (particularly or even only the English) would tow their little island to the eastcoast of the US if they could.

I've met a number of Brits and none were bigoted towards Americans. They were quite friendly chaps if I do say so myself.

Well Americans tend to come across as loud, brash and over-confident which is perhaps a little much for us reserved Brits to stomach at times.

 

But yeah, don't take it personally. We don't like most other countries. Hell, we don't even like each other.

Most of the time, I find it the other way around.

 

I've met a lot of cool and calm Brits, while I've met a lot of obnoxious brits. It happens, same goes for us, we can be the same. I don't think it's America as a country that some of them hate but just the people that live there. We're two different cultures though very similar. Could explain it.. who knows.

Dear Citizens of America,

 
In view of your failure to elect a competent President and thus to govern yourselves, we hereby give notice of the revocation of your independence, effective immediately.
 
Her Sovereign Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, will resume monarchical duties over all states, commonwealths and other territories (except Kansas, which she does not fancy), as from Monday next.
 
Your new prime minister, Gordon Brown, will appoint a governor for America without the need for further elections. Congress and the Senate will be disbanded. A questionnaire may be circulated next year to determine whether any of you noticed.
 
To aid in the transition to a British Crown Dependency, the following rules are introduced with immediate effect:
 
1. You should look up “revocation” in the Oxford English Dictionary. Then look up “aluminium,” and check the pronunciation guide. You will be amazed at just how wrongly you have been pronouncing it.
 
2. The letter ‘U’ will be reinstated in words such as ‘colour’, ‘favour’ and ‘neighbour.’ Likewise, you will learn to spell ‘doughnut’ without skipping half the letters, and the suffix “ize” will be replaced by the suffix “ise.”
 
3. You will learn that the suffix ‘burgh’ is pronounced ‘burra’; you may elect to spell Pittsburgh as ‘Pittsberg’ if you find you simply can’t cope with correct pronunciation.
 
4. Generally, you will be expected to raise your vocabulary to acceptable levels (look up “vocabulary”). Using the same twenty-seven words interspersed with filler noises such as “like” and “you know” is an unacceptable and inefficient form of communication.
 
5. There is no such thing as “US English.” We will let Microsoft know on your behalf. The Microsoft spell-checker will be adjusted to take account of the reinstated letter ‘u’ and the elimination of “-ize.”
 
6. You will relearn your original national anthem, “God Save The Queen”,
but only after fully carrying out Task #1 (see above).
 
7. July 4th will no longer be celebrated as a holiday. November 2nd will
be a new national holiday, but to be celebrated only in England. It will be called “Come-Uppance Day.”
 
8. You will learn to resolve personal issues without using guns, lawyers or therapists. The fact that you need so many lawyers and therapists shows that you’re not adult enough to be independent. Guns should only be handled by adults. If you’re not adult enough to sort things out without suing someone or speaking to a therapist then you’re not grown up enough to handle a gun.
 
9. Therefore, you will no longer be allowed to own or carry anything more dangerous than a vegetable peeler. A permit will be required if you wish to carry a vegetable peeler in public.
 
10. All American cars are hereby banned. They are crap and this is for your own good. When we show you German cars, you will understand what we mean.
 
11. All intersections will be replaced with roundabouts, and you will start driving on the left with immediate effect. At the same time, you will go metric immediately and without the benefit of conversion tables… Both roundabouts and metrification will help you understand the British sense of humour.
 
12. The Former USA will adopt UK prices on petrol (which you have been calling “gasoline”) – roughly $8/US per gallon. Get used to it.
 
13. You will learn to make real chips. Those things you call french fries are not real chips, and those things you insist on calling potato chips are properly called “crisps.” Real chips are thick cut, fried in animal fat, and dressed not with catsup but with malt vinegar.
 
14. Waiters and waitresses will be trained to be more aggressive with customers.
 
15. The cold tasteless stuff you insist on calling beer is not actually beer at all. Henceforth, only proper British Bitter will be referred to as “beer,” and European brews of known and accepted provenance will be referred to as “Lager.” American brands will be referred to as “Near-Frozen Gnat’s Urine,” so that all can be sold without risk of further confusion.
 
16. Hollywood will be required occasionally to cast English actors as good guys. Hollywood will also be required to cast English actors as English characters. Watching Andie MacDowell attempt English dialogue in “Four Weddings and a Funeral” was an experience akin to having one’s ear removed with a cheese grater.
 
17. You will cease playing American “football.” There is only one kind of proper football; you call it “soccer”. Those of you brave enough, in time, will be allowed to play rugby (which has some similarities to American “football”, but does not involve stopping for a rest every twenty seconds or wearing full kevlar body armour like a
bunch of Jessies – English slang for “Big Girls Blouse”).
 
18. Further, you will stop playing baseball. It is not reasonable to host an event called the “World Series” for a game which is not played outside of America. Since only 2.1% of you are aware that there is a world beyond your borders, your error is understandable and forgiven.
 
19. You must tell us who killed JFK. It’s been driving us mad.
 
20. An internal revenue agent (i.e. tax collector) from Her Majesty’s Government will be with you shortly to ensure the acquisition of all monies due, backdated to 1776.
 
Thank you for your co-operation.

That's what I was thinking.  Because of our crap corrupt government, they automatically think that we are all like that.

Rubbish, Brits have no issue with Americans as a whole. You can find people who are anti foreigner in any country. If anything they dislike Australians , but I think most of that convict stuff is just banter.

You know what's funny is that I think you guys have a really cool accent.  If you talk on the phone with a cockney accent to someone, they would probably think that you are a hardcore mob boss.

You're not basing British peoples opinion on USA by what some 8 year old kid said on Call Of Duty are you?

 

In fact I love USA for the laughs it has brought me ridiculing some of you. There are some Americans that are just so damn stupid. And there are also Brits that are so damn stupid, there's stupid people in every community. I just personally find Patriotic Americans the funniest. As do R*. GTA has been just been making fun of America the whole time.

If you want to see something stupid from Britain, let me introduce you to something called "Chavs". 

 

 

"u beter get out my siyt or elss itz left right left gud niyt" These are some badass people you do not mess with. Sorry I spelt half the words wrong, but I find it hard to quote a chav without spelling every word wrong I can.

Anyway most Brits I met were cool, and because of that I never got the impression they hated us. But I do dislike these "chavs" now, because damn.

I hate all Americans Yanks, in your face, loud brash, too patriotic, war mongering, gun loving, narrowminded, royal family bumming, calling your trousers your pants !! I also hate the stereotypes forced onto us by the media.

 

In truth, Americans are brilliant, polite and way less rude and stuck-up than a lot of British people are, especially southern c*nts.

Don't do it. America sucks. 

 

Our President sucks. Our general population is stupid. Our priorities are completely skewed, and our government and corporations are so corrupt that it's disgusting. They'll throw every American under the bus if it makes them money.

 

Most of my friends here in the states wish they could live in the UK, believe it or not. I'd consider it.
