i dont believe that youre american

i decided to make a seperate post sort of in response to this one,

alot of people dont seem to know this, but it actually costs 2,350 dollars to give up your american citizenship, and if you’re an american citizen living outside the US, you still have to pay american taxes.

im an american citizen but have lived in germany since i was three. im honestly more german than american at this point, but regardless i still have to pay the fee to give up my american citizenship in order to get a german one. and since im over 18, if i ever earn enough money, i have to pay american taxes as well as german taxes.

google it if you dont believe me.

I hate the Donald Drumpf thing

Can’t we agree he’s awful without resorting to bigoted bullshit about cultural naming differences? It’s so funny. The punchline of this joke is ‘non-American names sound stupid’. Gee, I can’t imagine why people felt and feel pressure to assimilate by anglicising their names when this cultural attitude persists.

Do you think that people with 'exotic’ names should change their names to be taken seriously in the country in which you live? Is this your viewpoint, held so strongly that you also believe the old name should be kept so secret that the descendents of people who changed it what, 400 fucking years ago, should therefore be a punchline when the name is dragged up?

Because that’s what’s implied here. You can’t laugh at 'Donald Drumpf’ without nurturing that toxic bullshit.

Don’t make fun of names. They don’t come from nowhere. Maybe 'Drumpf’ sounds a little goofy in English, apparently didn’t in Bavaria. Even if it did- jesus christ, so what?

Just. There are a wealth of reasons to mock and despise the man. You can pull receipts on anything he’s said publicly in the last 20 years, there’s a good chance you’ll find something offensive or embarrassing. Don’t do Drumpf. Resorting to this legitimizes jingoist mockery that most of it dislike when it’s not directed at Trump.
