How many parallels can you find between the sterotypical "ugly
american" and an "ugly greenie?"

<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ugly_American_(pejorative)>
used to refer to perceptions of loud, arrogant, demeaning,
thoughtless, ignorant, and ethnocentric behavior

But, wait ... there's more, and it's worse than we thought.

The term for Americans was coined before this was known:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunning%E2%80%93Kruger_effect
a cognitive bias wherein people of low ability have illusory
superiority, mistakenly assessing their cognitive ability as greater
than it is.

But true greenies display it proudly.

You joked about the previous U.S. president and what you called the "apology tour", now you complain about the concept of american exceptionalism, why do you flip and flop?

Boorish rudeness born of self-importance and ignorance isn't
exceptionalism.

So when you said "swan song" you were referencing his singing skills?

Show us you can do better than Bret: If you think you have something
to say (as opposed to a compusion to say something), provide enough
context to make it clear.

I want to neither attempt to read your mind, nor to expend much effort
in deciphering whatever it is you think you have to say.

I asked for a point of clarification from you the person who used the words "swan swong", the point was you implied ugly american based on your judgment of behavior and on the flip side you referenced the previous president and his actions in another judgment.

So why the flip flop?

Again, I do not intend to expend much effort in deciphering whatever
it is you think you have to say.

I am here for two reasons:
1. "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men
to do nothing." - Edmund Burke
2. Entertainment value.

You are approaching exhaustion on the latter.

If your need to have the last word makes you look goofy, there may be
progress on the former.

The latter would imply your words deserved to be recognized, i mean you did say "swan song" in the context of the last u.s. president so called "apology tour".

If you cant "man up" and admit those descriptions vs the title of this thread are contradictory then you shouldnt mind me pointing out how you devalue your own efforts.

Seems like the views of americans changed based on your haphazard ever changing standards, flip one time the flop the other way.

Your own bias is a form of self created exceptionalism, an insulated place where you incorrectly think you dont have to account for what you say.

Flipping and flopping wally fails to establish his point, as his own words did him in.
