Young Americans Behaving Badly, Again

Yet another example of young Americans doing us all proud, by way of No More Mr. Nice Blog:  
What would be a dream night for Suly and Anaximandro Amable, a newly married couple who went to Cancun for their honeymoon, became a bitter experience on Monday March 13.
During a family show on the high seas, young American spring breakers began to sing the controversial “Build That Wall” chant, which shocked Mexican national tourists and workers.
This is just one of the many blameworthy behaviors that young spring breakers have shown recently in Cancun and that are described as acts of xenophobia and discrimination against Mexicans within their own country, which is (or should be) totally unacceptable.

Swedish kids don’t act that way, neither do Japanese kids, or Germans, Danes, Indians,  Canadians, Poles or Ecuadoreans.

Americans do.

I wonder if they know the Wall Street type who thought it would be cute to get drunk and dry hump a statue of a little girl? You know, this guy:

To hell with it. Slap these punks in the army and send them to Syria. If not, they’re gonna wind up running Citigroup and Goldman Sachs. They’re gonna be your next representative, Supreme Court justice, billionaire CEO, attorney or an advertising executive. They’re going to preside over Fourth of July parades, ribbon cutting ceremonies and shareholder’s meetings at which they breathlessly announce the next wave of layoffs and sleazy stock buy-back schemes. They’re going to be in the Kiwanis Club and coach your kid’s soccer team. In short, they’re going to evolve into good solid bourgeois  Americans who will dutifully keep our best traditions alive, including xenophobia and racism.

After they’ve matured a bit, they’ll learn to keep it discreetly in the closet (as some of them have no doubt already learned to do with their more unseemly sexual urges). They’ll go to their graves insisting they aren’t racist, but every time a foreign brown person says “boo!” they’ll be leading the charge for sanctions, drone strikes and boots on the ground. These brave, potbellied burgomasters will man up and tell us war is hell as they urge roundups and mass deportations. And not only will they not suffer from it, it will make their careers.

Not *all* American kids behave like that. Just young entitled Republican kids. Believe me, nobody in my neighborhood was going to Cancun for spring break, they were all too busy counting pennies and hoping they had enough money to eat during the week that the school cafeterias were closed. Only rich entitled types, spawn of Republican elites, are asswipes like that.

And yeah, the fact we have so many of these Republican elites is a problem...
