Graffiti in Central London about 20 minutes ago. Could not say it better myself.



Saw this on a telephone exchange box at the end of my street.

Short and to the point.

Trump. Despised the world over!

1. It's ALLL over Dublin as well

 

I've been here for... god... 15 years - here and London - never have I see this much anti-American sentiment in the open...

There's no real distinction, any more than the average American thinks about individual Yemeni, Iranians, Russians, etc.

America IS Trump to the world, and the world is less concerned than ever about subtlety re: US citizens and their gov.

7. When I lived in London

 

Lived and worked... I worked in a University. I had friends and it was all good, until the US re-elected W. Then people who had been ok to me were actively rude and aggressive to me.

It's nice to think everyone makes this distinction, but... it's not been my experience.

Luckily here in Ireland I'm basically an adopted Irishman, but... I hear a LOT of anti-American stuff from Brits and Irish, and more than ever frankly.

Comments about the endless gun slaughter, the corruption, the poor schools, the healthcare system, etc.

And of course the Germans are VERY openly saying the US is currently not a friend of ally.

It's a giant mess now.

11. I think people mock rather than hate

Generally it has always been a gentle mocking based on the fact we believe we are superior to America and therefore look down on the culture in a family way - as I said.... younger cousin. A tad irritating but the affection is there. I think that mocking is not as gentle now, and there is very much a sense of disbelief that enough Americans could be so stupid as to vote for such a stupid man. But hell we voted for Brexit..... so moral high ground is somewhat unstable at the moment. Where are you in Ireland? I am originally from Belfast.

33. West Cork is where most of my lot are from. In Cork, you either go to East Cork or West Cork for the

holidays (or go full metal jacket down to deepest Kerry). I really wouldn't consider heading east, it was always Garrettstown/Courtmac/Owenahincha.

To Caherdaniel for holidays every year. I'll be there in five weeks.

Every time I'm in Kerry I meet as many people from Cork as Kerry.

My wife holidayed a few years in Owenahincha. Never been I don't think.

The currents in Owenhincha are dodgy, great beach though, and Rosscarbery is down the road. Courtmac is great too, especially for Regatta week.

to Caherdaniel, the weather was so warm we were even able to paddling ! Not bad for February

Have a great time.

21. It's sad that people can't differentiate between individual citizens and their governments,

 

especially when those citizens are clearly against their government. It's very narrow-minded I think. A lot of their criticism is justified, but they should give individuals a chance. They don't like it when we make sweeping generalizations about them.

We can understand that not all people are representative of their governments. You have to get to know someone before you can judge them.

Don't you mean it's sad that SOME people can't differentiate? You wouldn't want to appear narrow-minded or to be making sweeping generalizations, would you?

15. Its undoubtedly anti Trump

I correspond regularly with someone in Britain and the subject of Trump comes up often. They do understand and know we aren't all crazy. Every country gets a really off-the-wall leader at one time or another, kind of like that one insane relationship that seems so out of character, but your friends understand, knowing it does not reflect who you truly are and it will pass.

During the Bush years, my daughter played online games with people in Europe and she would chat with them in effort to find out how they viewed Americans. She was reassured to discover that they knew Bush did represent most Americans. If anything, they were sympathetic.

Remember the sorryeverybody.com website? The rest of the world responded with another website (whose name I forget) but I was greatly heartened by the fact that they were so gracious and forgiving about it. So I don't think the image is directed at us. IMO

That brings back memories. Then came Obama and you could hear the rest of the world let out a collective sigh, "Our friend is going to be okay."

Of course, I didn't think we'd have to be apologizing again so quickly, but friends understand. If we don't get our act together, they might have to engage in a little firm intervention. After all, "true friends don't let friends drive Trump".
