A Biker is parked on the sidewalk in a group cursing and throwing up his middle finger at my Father as he is proudly carrying his American flag to the Adelaide Freedom Rally in Adelaide South Australia on the 27th of November 2021.

I am American and currently living in Australia along with my immediate family. I have been living here for over 20 years and still have a thick American accent that has adopted a few very minor Aussie pronunciations that I am consciously aware of. From personal experience, Australians hate Americans. This is rarely outright hate though but rather usually a passive aggressiveness in a subtle and backhanded way. Many Americans new to Australia will not notice this, it takes a while to pick up on. It is very common for Australians to call you "mate", while secretly hating on you and quietly fucking things up for you. "Mate" is a meaningless and vapid term, albeit being quintessentially Australian.

Personally I have not had much luck here lately in my career and other avenues in life, I can only speculate why this is but have a fairly good idea why. About 85 percent of the time when I meet an Aussie for the first time, within the first few sentences of conversation a common question will always arise: "You've got an accent? Where is it from?" etc. I wonder if Indians and Chinese get asked these questions? Who am I kidding, of course they wouldn't, that would be "racist". Myself, a straight white male with an obvious North American accent will always get asked. It's all so tiresome.

Australians have always loved American pop culture, cars, motorcycles, movies, music, fashion, brands, foods yet still generally hate Americans when they meet them or see the flag. I dare any American in Australia to place an American flag on their (non-American) car here and see what will happen to it when its left out in the open in a super market parking lot (expect alot of key scratching to be involved).

The only sensible conclusion that can be drawn from all of this is that: They hate us because they ain't US.

I look forward to the day I leave this God forsaken country for good and return to the Greatest Country in the World, The United States of America. Thank you Patriots for taking the time to read my post.

How are we supposed to help them though? We're still trying to combat our own issues. It's not like we have a good Government behind us to help them with anymore. It's pretty much every man for himself at this point.

We can't because our government is cucked as bad as theirs. I feel for you, good luck friend.
