who is this?
this is literally the UK prime minister. why are americans so ignorant? if i have to know about ur fugly tangerine peel president u can know about our long-deceased grape skin PM
this isn’t about britain’s imperial legacy, this is about americans being ignorant of everything that doesn’t happen within its own borders, and not caring enough to learn about the countries which are forced to be in constant awareness of your politics. this applies to all of the USA’s allies and states it has relations with, even the ones outside of europe and white areas. i would show the same disgust to any american who couldn’t be bothered to learn the leader of germany, who was one of the british empire’s greatest geopolitical rivals – this isn’t about the british empire’s legacy.
in fact, this is about american imperialism and its superiority complex, as perfectly illustrated by you. pat yourself on the back.
Do you think before you yell at people busy contacting their fascist representatives or do you think you’re the only thing that matters and just spout whatever
again, as i’ve already mentioned on this post, non-american people are plenty busy and can still recognise donald trump. funny you should talk about me thinking i’m the only thing that matters considering that’s the US’ view of itself.
Are y’all surprised? Most Americans don’t know shit about other countries.
It is quite disheartening just how many people are unaware of all the shit going on in the UK
Honestly it’s pretty stupid that we’re suddenly required to know about your countries leader like dude it doesn’t affect some people nor does everyone have to care and your genralizing of American people as stupid and ignorant because our leaders in our deeply corrupt political system gained power in the first place and decided to fuck shit up around the globe so now I have to know who your now deceased prime minister is like homie not only do I not care even if I did I’d tell you to stfu cause it’s just stupid bullshit y’all don’t know what it’s like living in our borders the same as we don’t know your borders but I’m not a douchebag genralizing based on the area you live in some people don’t wanna know about politics at all they just wanna live they’re fucking life and I disagree with those views but I completely get it when our system has so many layers of problems at times it feels impossible to fix and I get it Trump is ridiculous but y’all act like Hillary would’ve been so much better she was a monster in many of the same ways Trump is and y’all somehow forgot about fuck ass bush the dude who invaded a so sovereign country that didn’t attack us killing minimum 200k civilians and Obama who decided not only to continue many of the things the bush administration was doing but to put some of these programs like the NSA spying and our drone strike program on steroids and continued the very unconstitutional president of just tacking on more countries to the allowed military force for the war on terror and ignoring to go through Congress to start or take part in military operations and intervention that completely ignores the idea of separation of powers and guess what I don’t expect you to know every little damn thing about my country even though I know it affects your life much much more than your country effects ours
“now deceased prime minister” dude you’re just proving our point! That’s Theresa May. Our very much alive (unfortunately) prime minister. It’s not about if it affects you or not, it’s just about having a bit of empathy and being aware of what goes on outside your own country. It’s not a competition to see who’s leader is worse and who’s having the shittiest time. No one expects you to know everything about the UK. But knowing who Theresa May is and knowing that the Tory party are generally just evil pricks is not a lot to ask
Okay so you’re saying you have a point but really you don’t how are we supposed to gain access to this information that again isn’t gonna effect us it makes much much more sense to learn about the actual history of a country than what the name of a former prime Minister is and that y’all have a way toned down version of the republican party in the US I may not know that but I do know about how the British and the French messed up Israel and palistine in the late 1800s and early 1900s
“the british and french messed up israel and palestine in the late 1800s and early 1900s” palestine was ruled by the ottoman empire (turkey) until 1918, so the british only messed up the area from 1918 onwards (not late 1800s), and the only major french intervention i can think of is the 1956 suez canal debacle, so you obvs don’t know much about that either
