35 Reasons Why I Hate America (Americans)
By Christopher R Rice
1.) The CIA floods American streets with drugs. In hopes that we will forget, but I remember everything. Read more: Afghan heroin & the CIA
2.) The land belongs to the Native Americans. We, the white man, stole it. America killed, lied, cheated every Indian tribe and broke every single treaty we ever signed. The history is not disputable contrary to popular opinion. The evidence is clear and all around us. We slaughtered the Native Americans, stole their land, minerals, oil, food supply, lied and cheated their descendants. We got rich by robbing and stealing, oh yeah and forced labor...
3.) Slavery, when the f' do you plan on paying these people back? Where's the justice without reparations? Food stamps don't count, more white people receive welfare than blacks. So shut up with that cracker BS. Worse than that, profitable corporations receive three times the amount of handouts from the federal government than poor people do. Don't get me started. So when are you going to pay up, for all that hard work? That you were too lazy to do. How did we pay them back? Lynching's, segregation, racism, violence, drug wars, incarceration, overcrowded solitary confinement.

4.) Segregation, Jim Crow, the KKK. You're white and have never had to suffer such indignities so I don't expect you to be able to understand what it's like to live in fear, all the time. Read more: Are You a Racist?
5.) Prohibition. It does not work. Prohibition created the Mafia, the Drug Cartels and makes us and our families less safe. Prohibition has nothing to do with public safety and everything to do with making drug companies and the politicians / lawmakers richer. Read more: Prohibition KILLS
6.) Public Education in America is a joke. The problem is not underfunding or bad apples or bad students. Japan, Germany and Canada all spend half what America spends per student, on education and their students are better educated. America ranks 29th in education among 33 industrialized nations.
7.) Racism, sexism, ageism, homophobia and all of the other hatred that I learned in America. Why is it that in Iraq or Syria before we invaded, Christians, Jews and Muslims lived side by side in peace and harmony, but in America you can't? Melting pot my ass.
8.) American Democracy is a joke. Politicians are bought and sold. Politician was not meant to be an occupation. The whole system has been corrupted by lobbyist, special interest, PACs, the list is endless and not worth repeating. Read more: Elections v. Voters Now these chuckleheads send an alleged billionaire to "clean the swamp". American democracy is more like a TV game show or the WWF. All for show and none of it the least bit real.
25.) Police brutality and the use of excessive force, including police beatings, unjustified shootings and the use of dangerous restraint techniques to subdue suspects are as American as apple pie. Nothing is being done to monitor or check persistent abusers, or to ensure that police tactics in certain common situations minimize the risk of unnecessary force and injury.

26.) Rape: Did you know that nationally fewer than half of the corrections officials whose sexual abuse of juveniles is confirmed are referred for prosecution, and almost none are seriously punished. Although it is a crime for staff to have sex with inmates in all 50 states, prosecutors rarely take on such cases. Did you know that in America a woman is raped every two minutes? And that every six minutes that victim is a child? Did you know that female cadets are being raped in the US military? And according to the Pentagon, male service members and their children are also being raped by other US service members. Read more: Pentagon: Hundreds of Military Kids Sexually Abused Annually There's also rapes committed every year by the US military at overseas bases. Where is the outrage? Christians protest abortions but don't have a damn thing to say about rape. Hum, could it be because their own son Johnny, the local high school football star is a rapist too. God bless America.

27.) Torture. The most recent and most prominent instance of the use of torture in interrogation is that of the American CIA. After the defeat of the Axis powers in World War II, the CIA became both student and teacher of torture, propagating torture techniques worldwide to support anti-Communist regimes during the Cold War. The CIA adopted methods used by the Gestapo, KGB and North Koreans from their involvement in the Korean War such as waterboarding, sleep deprivation, and the use of electric shock, and researched new ideas: so-called 'no-touch' torture involving sensory deprivation, self-inflicted pain, and psychological stress. The CIA taught its refined techniques of torture through police and military training to American-supported regimes in the Middle East, in Southeast Asia during the bloody Phoenix program, and throughout Latin America during Operation Condor. Torture also became widespread in some Asian nations and South Pacific nations, in Malaysia, the Philippines and elsewhere, both for interrogation and to terrorize opponents of the regime. "In its pursuit of torturers across the globe for the past forty years," writer Alfred McCoy notes, "Amnesty International has been, in a certain sense, following the trail of CIA programs."
28.) Solitary Confinement. In 2013 a hunger strike by over 30,000 prisoners at Pelican Bay and other Security Housing Unit (SHU) prisons in California shed light on the torture inside the prison walls. Prisoners are held in isolation in 8 x 10 steel boxes with no bars or windows. These conditions were condemned by the UN Committee on Torture, Amnesty International, and other human rights organizations. Charles Carbone from California Prison Focus said, "The SHUs are used to capture those people who are able to gain any political visibility, political notoriety, or those people that are able to mobilize and radicalize other prisoners. They're essentially cut off from the rest of the world and other prisoners." The SHU is meant to create a climate of hopelessness and an atmosphere meant to break people down and crush their will to resist.
29.) DHS agents have recently set up constitutionally-questionable “security checkpoints” up to 100 miles inside U.S. territory. If you should drive into one of these roadblocks, you are not required to answer the agent’s questions (usually starting with “Are you a United States citizen?”). Nor are you required to consent to any searches. Read more: DHS for profit Prison plans for immigrants
30.) In America it is the criminals who get promotions and bonuses, bailouts and tax breaks. The middle class gets the squeeze and the poor are either caged up or shot like dogs in the street. Read more: Class war
31.) I remember Vietnam and the body bags. The rich kids with their deferments. Wasn't that long ago, you sent us into Iraq, to hunt for WMD. While your friends at Halliburton laughed all the way to the bank.
Cheney's Halliburton made $39.5 billion on the Iraq war scam and no one went to prison. Generals got promotions. Bend over America and forget about the lotion. Read more: Endless War = Endless Profits
32.) Elections. Our elections have become a bazaar for special interest and corporations, our representatives are merely middlemen and women between the self interest of corporate America and the law making process.
33.) The Environment. America has 5% of the worlds population and yet consumes 25% of the worlds resources. I know that you forgot but I remember everything and it wasn't that long ago I fought McDonalds to get them to stop using Styrofoam and you from using aerosols. But I could not stop McDonalds from chopping down the rainforest or stop American farmers from spaying my food with chemicals. I'm sure McDonalds saves a ton of money raising their beef in South America rather than buying it from American ranchers but in the process they have destroyed the planet. And when global warming came, America laughed, ha, ha, ha, all the way to the bank. No, no, I don't believe in global warming my heads firmly planted in the sand or up my red, white and blue ass. It use to be a parents dream to leave their child (ren) a better world than the one that they found. Not today. Today we leave our children with the bill. And what is Americas national debt up to now, don't know, because we can't count that high. Math isn't Johnnies strong suit.
34.) The war-on-terror has nothing to do with fighting terrorism and everything to do with war profiteering. The US military has been in Afghanistan for how long now? The Taliban doesn't even have a navy, an air force or a military budget. They're a bunch of goat herders and if you believe America can't defeat the Taliban in fourteen fuckin' years than you are as dumb as they treat you.

35.) To all police (LE) priest (churches) and hypocrites (snitches): This is my mind and my body, not yours. I will get high and fornicate as much as I want. You should just go back to stuffing your stupid faces with doughnuts and leave the rest of us alone. Why don't you get a real job and stop sucking on the public tit? Try working for a living like the rest of us, you lazy worthless bastards! Read more: An Open Letter to all LE
That was easy. I actually came up with '1,000 Reasons why I Hate America' but this website hasn't made me a dime, so I've got to get back to my real job, before I get fired. Welcome to the Underground.
This article has received more attention then expected. I thought I should explain that America has never lived up to its own ideals of life, liberty and justice for all and America never will, as long as we continue to tell ourselves and our children that America is number one then where is there room for improvement? Obviously, if you are the best then there is little need to do any better or to strive for improvement. But if you realize that American schools are last or 29th, than you might demand better. And that is the point of this article, please share, comment and visit the other links on this page. Stop waiting on politicians to bring "change" and realize that you are responsible for the community you live in and not the police or some other government schmucks that don't know you or your family or give two flips about you. Stay informed and vigilant.

19.) Zero interest rates reward excessive unnecessary borrowing and immorally penalize saving. Politically, America suffers from a thoroughgoing default of the government on its responsibility to maintain a sound and honest monetary and banking order.
20.) Every time someone exercises their rights to free speech or their right to assemble (to redress their grievances) they're met by the riot police and tear gas in their faces. Read more: 10 Lies the US. Government needs you to believe to keep themselves out of jail
21.) Instead of rewarding whistleblowers or activist they are derided threatened and mocked. Called tinfoil hats or conspiracy nuts or commies. Told that their beliefs are not legit. Their causes not worthy. Their sources not trustworthy. They are hunted, prosecuted and caged, Americas political prisoners.
22.) Homeless, the mentally ill. Just look at how a society or government treats its most vulnerable and defenseless citizens and you will know everything that you need to know. Shameful, disgusting, left out in the streets like dogs to dig through our garbage for bottles and cans. So what do these so called Christians do? They put locks on their trash cans, God bless America. In other words, starve you crazy loons. We won't even let you have our garbage. Fuckoff and die.

23.) Veterans, widows, orphans. How are they treated in America? With long lines and denied services. How many veterans have died waiting for medical treatment at the VA? How many orphans have died in the states care? Too damn many, that's how many. (IG Report: 300,000 Veterans Died While Waiting for Health Care at VA)
24.) Justice. According to: The Innocence Project has helped free hundreds of wrongly convicted people from prison in the last decade, and they point to studies which estimate that between 2.3% and 5% of all prisoners in the U.S. are innocent, which suggests that roughly 46,000 to 100,000 people are currently serving time for crimes that they did not commit. Keep that in mind the next time you are tempted to believe that your innocence will protect you from prosecution.
It does not matter if you are innocent or guilty, to convict you, the State will spare no expense. People accused of crimes are presumed to be guilty, whether this comes by way of trial or plea. This presumption means that defendants must convince the jury of his/her innocence, rather than the prosecution having to prove guilt. Juries typically believe law enforcement over alleged criminals.

9.) The Constitution of the United States of America was never signed by me and it's guaranteed rights are hallucinatory at best and can be suspended indefinitely at the whim of some politician. How does the Second Amendment stop applying for a citizen of the US just because he or she has become a felon. How can you deny someone the right to vote because they have a felony? Or because of the color of their skin? Or because their female? Remember the fight for women's suffrage? Probably not but I remember everything.
10.) Human Trafficking. US corporations have been involved in the worse human trafficking in the history of the human race from slavery to Americas open border policies and American politicians are complicit. And its common f'n knowledge. You treat these poor people like dirt. Use, abuse and discard. All the while playing the domestic population against the very immigrants that you invited and bribed to get here. Tyson Foods was fined by the Justice Department for importing illegals to work in their meat packing plants. Too damn cheap to hire Americans. Read more: American Slavery Today
11.) Police man of the world or terrorist? America pretends to be Superman but it's all a front, America is really the Super Villain. Don't believe me? Let's just ask the Vietnamese shall we? Americans call it Napalm and Agent Orange, everyone knows it as chemical warfare. The imported slaves, can we ask their descendants? Or how about the Natives, can we ask their opinion of the settlers, do you think they see us as the police man of the world or the terrorist? How about we ask the Iraqi's? Do you suppose that Iraqi children see us as the police man of the world? Or as the worlds greatest terrorist?
12.) Protect and serve, what a joke. Out of all of the murders, homicides, burglaries, rapes and other assorted crimes that took place last year the police and justice department could not prevent one of them. They simply draw chalk lines and harass the victims hoping for a confession. Statistics confirm the obvious truth that the police in America cannot prevent violent crime. Look closely, police are put into each community to give the illusion of protection. If you were really protected you wouldn't need to pay for a home security system would you? In reality, the police are put into each community to shake down hard working law abiding citizens for small infractions of the law like speeding that should be a warning at the most is a $600. ticket in Calif., not for your safety but to fill the city coffers so that city council members can take home six figure salaries on the backs of the poor.
13.) America locks up more of its own citizens than any other country on the planet. So much for land of the free. Home of the slaves. You better stop reading this and get back to work before the boss catches you. And docks your pay. Read more: US Prisons are Cruel and Unusual
14.) American medicine is yet another joke. And the jokes on you. Do pills for high blood pressure cure the reason you have high blood pressure? No, no way. A better way is to find the reason for the high blood pressure and correct it. Do MD's do that? Of course not. And that my friends is modern day medicine here in the corporate empire of America where your health takes a back seat to corporate profits and MD wealth.
So many of those pills have horrible side effects like insomnia, ED and lethargy. When all that is needed is a better diet and light exercise. Recently the CDC said that prescription drugs are killing more people than cocaine and heroin combined. The worthless MD's heal nothing and treat everything with toxic chemicals that kill. When did treating symptoms get confused with healing? Read more: Big Pharma
15.) Taxes: As things stand now, with federal taxes, state taxes, county tax, sales tax, property taxes, car tax, gas tax, phone taxes, etc. “They” take 4 months of our wages every year in taxes. For that kind of money we should have the best schools on the planet, right? But every year 30 to 50% of our kids get left behind. Let me repeat, taxes take 4 months of your wages away from you every year. That's true under Republicans or Democrats!
16.) The U.S. was the largest creditor in the world. Now the debt is in the trillions of dollars. Trillions of dollars transferred from the worlds richest and most powerful country. This is a form of destructive economic management at a level of graft and corruption that has NO parallel. There’s nothing comparable to that in history.
As the administration and Congress argue over cuts in social programs, inequality in America grows more extreme each day. Even the great financial crash didn’t derail this trend. The richest 400 Americans, for example, increased their wealth by 54 percent between 2005 and 2010, while the median middle-class family saw its wealth decline by 35 percent.
17.) U.S. policies (includes tax policy, financial deregulation, trade policy, anti-labor policy, and much more.) for the past 35 years has been aggressively dedicated to shifting income share away from the poor and middle class and into the pockets of the already rich. We've allowed our country to be taken from us, for the benefit of the few and the total decimation of the vast many.
18.) (Due to prohibition) Drugs are available in and around every school, even your own neighborhood. If the government can not keep drugs out of a high security prison they certainly can not keep them out of your children's school.
Isn't this the very thing we were supposed to protect our families from? In pursuit of Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness?
Should We Trust Police Officers?
Are police officers allowed to lie to you? Yes the Supreme Court has ruled that police officers can lie to the American people. Police officers are trained at lying, twisting words and being manipulative. Police officers and other law enforcement agents are very skilled at getting information from people. So don’t try to “out smart” a police officer and don’t try being a “smooth talker” because you will lose! If you can keep your mouth shut, you just might come out ahead more than you expected.
