It's just what people do. There a slot in the brain for 'enemy gang,' and some gang or other gets into it.

I don't get it.

I thought hating the French was a right wing thing.

Seems out of character for you.

C'mon. Haven't you ever seen 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail?' They're awful!

I have no idea, having grown up among French speaking people and having a delightful French sister-in-law, rest her soul I cannot explain your feelings

Americans, and most particularly the Right, hate the French because they're so much like us. They're nationalistic, believe that others should speak their language, and tend to believe in their own exceptionalism. Moreover, they told us that invading Iraq was a bad idea and they were right. The nerve.:rolleyes:

I've traveled through France dozens of times and have never had an issue. In fact, I find it a pretty exceptional country - great food, great wine, great art, great skiing, great sights and beautiful women. What's not to like?

What would happen to a new PC member coming out as French? :eek:

Okay. Seriously - I heard about an aversion of Americans against French even in the "Simpsons" TV show. But I never undestood the reason for that. It must be a historical one, maybe when America was young ther was a severe incident and then as a result of this incident an aversion had been passed on by generations?
