I think you overdid it!!

Thanks. I was kind of doing it blindly without using the GUI.

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.


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.

Im a mexican that has been legally living in the US for a bit more than a decade. One thing that is clear in Mexico is its poverty and how Mexicans manage to make the country better. So every time they get ahead of another country (manufacturing, scientific/technology advancements, etc) they say , "Viva Mexico". Mexicans are proud of their national hymn and country. On the other hand there is the USA where as the years pass by it feels like people are living just in a hotel ignoring who they are while stomping on the country flag and even burn it. This is why i gave Trump an opportunity and ignored MSM cries about how dangerous nationalism is.

So now to your topic. Saying that chanting USA in USA is offensive is beyond idiotic. I dont know how to express this enough.

Wait.... Your a Mexican that's been living here legally and you voted Trump... Are you trying to say your an American that came from Mexico?

I don't think it is. Different regions have their own chants. It's just national pride, not a fuck you to other countries.

And as they used their great bombs they shouted, " UUUSSSAAA!!! USA!! USA! usa! usa..! usa. usa... usa.... u.... sa... u.. s... a...u...s...a...u...s...a...u...s...a..." chants settled in as emotion faded. "u...s...a..." they slowly said over and over again -- endlessly.

There was no voice that sounded off. No piece that wasn't in line with those around it. Only vibrations echoing over the vastness of those around it. They buried each other like grains of sand falling down a dune pushed in zig-zag patterns from the movement of a snake as it slowly crept across the immensity of what they had created. The snake does not move without them.

"u...s...a..."

It slithered once more.

It was passing over like they hoped it always would. Moving forward ever so gracefully turning their resolutions into reality. Dancing down that dune it had scales sharp like daggers wrought from the pale bones of the enemies yet to face it's wrath. Fangs bearing drops of nectar glistened like young royalty that had yet to face it's first battle as king.

"u..s..a..."

It slithered once more.

To the enemy it goes to kill those who threaten prosperity.

"u..s...a..."

Those enemies who seek only to drown our glory out with their poisonous changes.

"u...s...a...

It stopped.

Without warning, a streaking shadow told them something was coming. It was bearing no resemblance to anything they had seen before and it was falling, and fast. ...The enemy. But how?

It was falling fast towards them. It was the one to act first. On this day, so honest from the clear sky, so clear from that rhythmic pride, so young from those resonating hearts they had seen what it was that had alluded them for the longest time. The enemy they had planned on killing was first to attack. Everything was to be lost. Did they fear it? Yes. But oddly enough a calm swept over them. An acceptance had nurtured something that they did not expect. In those dwindling moments they understood what was going to happen.

And so, as it fell, so did their fear, for the first time in their young lives.

And the enemy revealed itself as talons sank into the snake and lifted it up into the sky.

And the chanting had stopped once more.



..... Hmmm.
