What the hell are you still doing there? I’m sorry to tell you this is widespread in Europe. You would find the same thing in Sweden and Austria. They treat you like crap for several reasons, few of which are worth getting into.
We have deep cultural ties to all of Europe, especially the UK, which is obviously where we get our language from. You have to understand that despite this, a large group of people (possibly a majority) in ALL of these nations despise America. Why? The same reason they despise Israel. The state-controlled media (in Britain, the BBC) is controlled by Marxists who encourage an atmosphere of arrogance. Europeans succumbed to the Social Democrat model of socialism after the fall of the Soviet Union, and it has failed them. Even Germany is on a decline now, as Greece lies in rubble. It’s hard for them to admit this has failed, because for them, it means they have failed. This is why those individuals accused the US of being “backward” for its doctors, despite the fact that the National Health Service is a bankrupt mess providing terrible care in beds crawling with MRSA, various bodily fluids dripping from ceilings. They are trying to make themselves feel better about the state of their nation by attacking you (bear in mind though, the US is not far behind Europe).
What you have in the UK is one of the most decayed cultures in Europe. I would leave as soon as you can. There are some British people who are good-natured and are in tune with what’s going on, but they make up a minority. Most of the population are the product of atheism, perverse culture, government dependency, and a lack of identity.
Think of how you might turn out if you actually believed Obama’s BS, and then woke up one day to find that your identity had been sold to pan-national socialists and invading Muslims, your drip-feed of benefits was gone and you no longer knew how to be a productive citizen, and all that a ‘secular’ society turned away from those ‘old world anti-science’ ideas of faith had brought you was having to cross the street to avoid the gang of feral 12 year olds attacking an old woman. You might just come out of that pretty messed up as well.
Is Britain one of our top allies? No. Not really. Don’t get me wrong, I wish it was. During the Thatcher days, things were very good, but everything has changed. All the UK is now is a pissed off fringe member of the EUSSR, hung with all the neo-Marxist decorations, but a little more whiny than the others. It’s a police state that routinely violates its people’s rights (not that many of them give a damn). They don’t like Americans (especially conservative Americans) because they’ve been told not to, just as they have been told that there is no God, abortion is fun, and gay marriage is a civil right issue. Oh, and don’t forget that third world immigrants make Britain a more ‘vibrant’ society.
I have come to the conclusion that this all won’t change until a total collapse occurs. I’m talking Wiemar. The house must be destroyed and rebuilt again. Come back to America. At least here, there is a cohesive opposition to the progressive socialist cabal. You really have to dig deep to find clear thinkers in the UK.
Sorry your suffering :(
All Western nations are in rapid decline. Coming back to the States is not going to help this individual in the long term. We are as sick as the UK is. In 20 or 30 years only parts of eastern Europe & the cone of South America will have any chance of keeping Western culture alive.
The reason I’m still here is I want my daughter back. I want to leave, but it doesn’t look like they plan to allow me to even leave with her if I get her back. I have no idea of all my options as the lawyer I got here has said if I want to leave when I get her back, that’s a different aspect of law or something.
I just have a gut feeling if I leave and try to fight the fight against them US side I won’t ever see my daughter again. These SOBs seem like the type to instantly label me returning to the US as (not that I could right now even if I wanted to since my passport is being held for “safety” reason) abandoning my daughter.
