“I Hate America”;the shameless courting of a pinko audience by any chance? Presumably,America meaning the United States of....,and not the whole continent, 'cus Canadians are particularly nice, and Mexicans make great bandits in westerns. Most Americans are jolly decent chaps as well,if you ignore the American Taliban of the trigger happy, homophobic,racist,and,quite frankly,stupid god nazi's of the middle bit. The Clash were 'Bored of the USA', which is a description of a nation that is simply incorrect! It's a place that evokes extremes of emotion. You either Love it, or, as in The Work's,and the majority of the developing world's case,Hate it.
With the unapologetic indiscriminate drone bombing of school kids in Pakistan,the inexplicable continuing support of the Zionist army of occupation in Palestine,and the shameless spying by the NSA on their 'allies' puppet leaders; there is a good case for the 'Hate' emotion. But, like the German people under the Nazi regime,Americans are victims too. Helplessly drugged by consumer fascism into a stupor of acquiescence, absorbing the Fear propaganda peddled by the unelected elements of that one party state, we must strive to help our American friends; if only to save them from themselves?
Fear not, for the unsustainable military spending to fight a non-existent enemy will cause this regime to collapse into the empty vaults of Fort Knox. The very same fate that happened to the Soviet Union.
I suppose its better to be hated than ignored isn't it? In fact you'd be hard pushed to think of a country that isn't hated by a certain section of the world's population.Even harder to think of a country that everyone loves......maybe Ireland,but I can't see it myself.Everyone seems to love Ireland and the Irish,even though they talk incessantly without breathing to anyone,anywhere,and are invariably drunk.
Being British, I am quite used to being from one of the most unpopular places on the Planet(especially where I live in France, where they still haven't forgotten the Hundred Years War!); so I have some sympathy with my american cousins.Personally, I Love America,and Americans; but their puppet government and its hidden masters stink.
Oh yeah,the music!
