It is not offensive at all. The only people who gets offended on that are those who wants to fundamentally change the founding of the United States.

An example... It is like communists moving away from communist countries into the United Stated but wants communism in the United States. Do you really know how messed up that kind of thinking is?

Pride has a place in all sporting events. When your country does something spectacular then it's cause to feel pride. When your country does nothing and you feel the need to yell about how great it is you are both annoying and stupid. Imagine if all sporting events became some sort of country dick measuring contest with yelling. It feels like a support group for insecure fans.

USA chant has always been offensive. That's EXACTLY why Americans take so much pride in it.

Perhaps I'm too politically correct or feminist or riding on helicopters or whatever, but meh. You want to go screaming USA on a couch or sporting arena or whatever because you just have THAT MUCH love for America, have fun. I see it as rather pointless, but then, I'm not a fan of most sporting events where such screaming would take place, so again.. meh. Boring. I don't see the point in it unless you're just trying to get a rise out of someone, then it's just sad.

No, but chanting in general is annoying. I’d rather be around a more laid back n civilized crowd

I've noticed too many schools have been trying to stop people from flying American flags and chanting USA lately:


It's not offensive unless there's a REASON--like a big doughy childlike reason with weird hair--that those who chant the loudest believe it's meant to be more of a fascistic weapon wielded against those you disagree with, since, well, they're only one person.
At which point it stops being a patriotic opinion, and starts becoming a Triumph of the Will belief that you are part of a volunteer army.

Chanting "USA!" at the Olympics when our team wins the 100M is national pride. Chanting "USA!" at Mexicans and Muslims on the street is not.

Anyone who opposes the idea of chanting USA USA USA should just gtfo out the USA. It is not an offensive chant no matter when it's used, if you think it is then your head is has just been infected by the cancer known as political correctness and/or intersectional feminism, turning you into a mindless sjw who needs urgent psychiatric help. Or a free helicopter ride.


Looks like someone reported your post, lmao. I guess the truth hurts to some.



I am willing to bet that the reporting his post is one of those infected with that cancer known as SJW.

I've spotted waldo!

Why do we have roaming packs of Mexicans on the streets? Shouldn't we have roaming packs of Americans on the street who chant back USA?

So...we'll protect ourselves by shouting at them?
That's not how the situations usually end, nor what the primal rhythmic appeal of chanting is meant to engender.

I thought you liberals liked to solve problems with your words. No wait that was old liberals now conservatives.

If you just start chanting USA back they will know you are a 'Murican like them and will accept you into their pack.
