The Democratic Underground Thread Of The Day: Give Us What We Deserve Mexico
I’m sure that most of you have heard about this story,
“Boos nearly drowned out “The Star-Spangled Banner” and dozens of Mexicans chanted “Osama! Osama!” as Mexico eliminated the United States in Olympic men’s soccer qualifying Tuesday night in Guadalajara.
“A loud anti-American crowd hollered as Mexico beat the United States 4-0 Tuesday night in the under-23 tournament, claiming a berth in the Athens Olympics,” the Associated Press reported today.”
While there certainly was some disagreement about this subject at the DU, there were several people at the Democratic Underground who PRAISED that “anti-American crowd” or blamed it on Bush. Here are the quotes….
JailForBush: “Mexican Soccer Fans Chant “Osama!” and boo the U.S. National Anthem. The icing on the cake? They beat the U.S. team 4-0. Go, Mexico!
DenverDem: “They hate us because we’re @ssholes. We exploit their labor for their willingness to work for below living wages. We steal their resources. We abuse their citizens when they attempt to get into our coutry to better themselves. This kind of reaction doesn’t surprise those of us who have eyes to see. The rest of the world hates us because we are greedy, exploitative, wasteful, hubris riddled assholes. We must change or die.”
Brian Sweat: “You’re right. It is disguesting that our foreign policy has created such ill will toward our nation and it is nothing that we should be happy about.”
Karenina: “Errraaaa…There’s been NO INVESTIGATION. We don’t even REALLY KNOW if “Osama” was behind it.”
DrWeird: “…Frankly, since the US used 9-11 to unjustly slaughter thousands of civilians in Iraq, I’d say this is the least we deserve.”
