This is the second post of polandball about the war of 1812 I've seen today. Is it the 201st anniversary of this or something? Or is it hate on America day?
User avatar #114 to #22 - jukuku (11/03/2013) [-]
So if someone brings up something in American history and it wasn't particularly favorable, it is hating on America? You're being far too sensitive about this, it's a joke.
#120 to #114 - tinypoodle (11/03/2013) [-]
No, but all of the unessicary things making america look completely stupid on every single thing related to history does seem to get a bit hatefull.

I was simply asking. If it was only one of these posts, I wouldn't have even left a comment. It's the fact that I came across 2 comics about the exact same thing. Plus the comments weren't too kind either. I just made an assumption.

Not hate on America, people just hate the assholes from all over the world. It's just U.S.A. is so involved in world politics, most of the people has something to say on the subject. And mine is this. I've watch this recently and I'm furious. But you know, not the entire population is like this.

Well butter me ****** what the hell was that?

I mean, I knew it was possible to be a colossal douchebag but words do not describe the level of douche-quake educing ************ dick-cheese that amounts to any man who would do that kind of **** .

Douchebags aren't specific to the US but god damn the US makes no attempt to hide theirs. Hell, they promote them to high-office sometimes.

******************** I'm glad there are people like John Green proving that America isn't the barren wasteland that many believe it to be but even then this is beyond smeg-head levels of "I want to shoot this guy in the dick to be extra sure he can't reproduce."

I love all the posts that make the US seem like the ignorant yet lovable and good at heart teenager, Canada seem like the passive kid that has good ideas but no one can hear them because they talk so quietly, and Britain as the adult who acts so sick and tired of America's attitude, but deep down we all know they all love each other.

Its quite funny actually. The "White" house didn't actually exist at this time. Oh, the HOUSE existed but it was a regular colour. It wasn't until we set it ablaze that you had to white wash it to get rid of the black scorch marks.

Sorry to inform you but it wasn't until after the Civil War that the White House became Iconic as the "Symbol of the Free World" (until of course Lady Liberty.) When President Lincoln was killed, the White House was refered to as "Lincoln's House". So in reality, In 1812, the White House was very unimportant in contrast to how it is today.

Which also to be fair, the outside view of America's standpoint on Illegal Immigrants is also focused on the people who think it's their duty to personally defend the US-Mexico border armed and ready. Those people are some crazy ***** that I wouldn't even wanna go near.
User avatar #155 to #81 - xdeathspawnx (11/03/2013) [-]
That's definitely not how it is. The Border Patrol is responsible for watching the US mexico border (and all other ways into the US) for illegal migrants. If a US citizen found out that someone was an illegal immigrant they would either

1) do nothing because they don't want to ruin that person's life.
2) report them to the police or Border Patrol, who would then most likely have them deported to their country of origin.

Any US citizen who was trying to guard the border them self would quickly be picked up and questioned by border patrol, and if they did manage to kill someone trying to get over he border they would face serious punishment.

I think it's funny that a lot of people think that Americans aren't taught about our losses in school. On the contrary, the losses are the biggest parts of the curriculum. You don't spend time dwelling on a battle where your forces demolished the enemy and continued on, you focus on key battles or devastating losses.
Hell, the civil war is one of the biggest things in U.S. history and EVERY battle in that war was a loss for Americans.

Pretty much no; considering that's where the national anthem came from of course they ******* teach that.

If I recall which i may not correctly ( cause who likes american history anyway)

America was staying neutral and was willing to trade with France or Britain, and in truth the kidnapping thing was done by both British and french, but the British did it more often and worse, so i think we started to lean on the Frenches side.

Except the forces that burned down the white house were british, from Britian, not Canadian. That's like saying the French seized Berlin in 1945, just because you were part of an alliance doesn't mean you did anything.
