    I guess this means you were not amused? ;)

    You mean there were other than economic reasons for freeing Western-Europe before the Sovjets did it?

    They also forgot that thing in Europe about the Nasis in Europe killing all the Jews, but it's such a minor event in history. It doesn't surprise me they forgot it.;):p

    That was not an event in the history of the US, was it?

    My point of interest in this case was whether Americans think this movie is a great joke or a grave insult of their country. Do not forget we are in the HUMOR forum...

    The first half with the pilgrims was pretty funny. It started to get repetitive, though, and lost it's humor value when it began showing people who make up a small percentage of the US population and making them out to be all there was in the US.

    No, but we intervened in that war, and it was possibly the most important event in US History.

    I think its stupid to mention WWII but I guess thats what the americans do: keep mentioning how they "saved" europe from the "evil" nazis. This video is about the americans and their guns. I thought it was funny, it was very funny.

    So its implying all gun owners are fearful racists? This is absolute garbage. It's insulting, demeaning, innacurate, misleading, and hordes of morons went to see it. :rolleyes: Anyone who doesn't think Michael Moore hates America only has to watch this video clip. This should be in Off Topic, not humor and jokes.

    Our AP US History teacher showed this to us when we were talking about the Bill of Rights. Hilarious.

    I saw it in Bowling for Columbine, and it's true. Guns kill people.

    The beginning is funny though.

    Your teacher showed this in school? Perfect... :dubious:

    And guns don't kill people. People kill people. Guns are just the most efficient tool. :ar15:

    My god, this is one of the worst things I have ever seen. First off, whoever made this really need to have a history lesson, the KKK not only prosecuted black people, but also several religious groups, like the Roman Catholics.

    Few things-
    It was in Bowling for Columbine, so I don't think you can count it as all humor.

    Guns do kill people. You are actually 3 times more likely to kill a family member than a robber or criminal.

    America's history is frankly, boring. 200 years of history is nothing. When I was in India we had to learn 3000 years of history. It's insulting that in high schools these days we spend a whole year on US History and only 2 years on the whole world's history.
