Why We Hate The Dutch

Tue Jul 12, 2005 2:15 pm

C'mon, admit it people. I don't think there is a single nationality on the planet which is more hated -- the French hate the Dutch, the English hate the Dutch, the Germans hate the Dutch, the Americans hate the Dutch. We as a world are unified on this single subject....quite possibly the only thing we are united on.

Oh, and if you don't hate the Dutch now, I urge you to watch this video, and within 2 minutes you will be

Couldn't watch the video but never thought either way about the dutch.

You have to be kidding - the English wouldn't p*ss on the French if they were burning in the gutter! You cannot underestimate the strength of utter dislike for the French by the English; and whatever you say, it's their own fault.

Just visit Paris, try to be civil to a French person and within a split second, when they realise you're English, that's it - they're rude to you, overcharge you, cook crap food for you, overcharge you again, and generally behave in the most obnoxious manner you ever did see.

Then Mr Chirac just goes the extra mile by abusing Tony Blair and slagging off our farmers (not that I stick up for either but you just don't do it in public!).

Real shame, because I happen to love flying AF/KLM!

As for the French, they aren't worth talking about. Can't even lose the Olympics without whingeing and crying "Foul!" Nope, France sucks, Holland Rules!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I agree...the Dutch are pretty great people...never had a bad experience with the Dutch...

On the other hand...all these people bashing France really isn't fair either...It's really only the Northern French. The Southern French are quite kind people...remind me of the British...whom I absolutly love. The Southern French are like the US Midwesterners and the Northern French are like the New England Americans- rude, pushy, fast paced life.

What a cheap shot, Catalep..er...Catatonic..well whatever. It is the French government who is dearly loved by the German government...nobody really knows why!! The other 81.99999mn Germans hate the French dearly, though admittedly about 30% or so do hate you sheep-buggering lot of football hooligans much more.

Now I keep myself on neutral ground on this: You're both disgusting morons, but if I have to, I'll take London over Paris (the city!!) everyday.

As for the Dutch: Nah, they are way too irrelevant to be hated, except maybe their caravans, their deadliest weapon when it comes to make decent people stand on the brakes of their cars on a regular basis. They seem to have billions of them, just take a look at our autobahns...millions to drive themselves, and the rest cruises on remote control!!

We don't hate the Dutch... it is more like we are sometimes smiling or shaking our heads about our strange little neighbor, the land of cheese, wooden shoes and watery tomatoes .  Wink
In fact, all kidding aside, I think many Germans, who have visited the country, are actually a bit envious about the perceived higher standard of living over there.

...but I guess, the Dutch still sometimes hate us for digging up their beaches and building huge sandcastles during our holidays - hey guys, we can't do anything about this, it is in our genes, we did that in the 1940's, we are still doing that today. Big grin

Where would that be??

2) I think all those people who are "singing" participated in "idols" at one time (like Popstars, etc.) And clearly they can't sing... I mean: even I am a better singer!  Yeah sure

3) This was probably a publicity stunt. I think they have a lot of courage to stand there in a FULL footballstadium, even though they can't sing (whether or not they know it)

4) I don't know if the poststarter was serious with we hate the dutch, but I don't (well... atleast most people Big grin

That's exactly my take on the Dutch, Skidmarks. One of my best mates is Dutch - I go there a lot and everybody over there is as friendly as you can possibly imagine.

The Dutch are, it has to be said, the most laid-back nation in Europe (must be the drugs) which means they don't tend to get hysterical about all sorts of things that many other European nations do.

So why hate them ?

Well, I years ago, in Amsterdam downtown was for unknown reasons kicked by a Dutch and when I turned and protested, hit in the midst of my face, resulting in a "blue eye" and a visit to the doctor twice. But neither do I hate THE Dutch for this, nor do I feel like hitting any Dutch people my fist into the face ! What makes "THE" Dutch somewhat "special" is that they are extremely "DIRECT" and not exceedingly diplomatic. But I know many Dutch whose acquaintance I value highly and whose personalities I appreciate. ---- I find their cuisine horrible but very much like the Indonesian restaurants in Amsterdam, so what ? No Dutch ever tried to force me to eat a Dutch meal at gunpoint !

The Welsh are the most obnoxious tw**s going, as soon as they realise you are English their attitude noticibly changes. We went on holiday in Pembrokeshire in 2002 (only because the missus' mate worked for a firm who had cottages in St.Davids-freebie), and on more than one occasion we got s**t purely for being superior English people (it must be an inferiority complex, right?). At a Wimpy bar in Haverfordwest a girl came over to our table smiling, heard our accents and changed instantly. She almost threw our food at us! Same in a chippy in Tenby. I mean, where does a 17 year old girl get this dislike from, it must be handed down through the generations. Scum. I presume they would expect decent treatment if they came to England. Like f**k c**ts! Lets detach it, float it into the Atlantic and let them get on with it. Rhoose could become an Air Transat glider field! And why don't Cardiff, Swansea and Wrexham play in the Welsh League? Not enough revenue? You need the English!

I never heard the Dutch were hated. As an Arubian my nationality is Dutch as we are part of the Dutch Kingdom. I lived many years in Holland and in general I found the Dutch very friendly, outgoing and nice........

About the French:

I certainly don't hate France or the French, but I and many other people I know, get annoyed that when you are in Paris (an international city) or EuroDisney, a place where many nationalities visit, the people refuse to speak English, while when you are in Holland, Germany or any one of the Scandinavian countries they switch to English very easily.

I ask in English where the cashier is, the lady answeres in French  

Of course there are a few exceptions, but I heard this complaint from many people.......

all these people bashing France really isn't fair either...It's really only the Northern French. The Southern French are quite kind people...

Another all-star comment. It is actually the other way around, my friend. People in the northern tip of France are very nice, friendly and welcoming. Compared to their southern counterparts, who are individualistic, self-centered, me-first, etc.

Have you ever been to France?  Wink

Quoting GlobeTrekker (Reply 39):
I don't certainly don't hate France or the French, but I and many other people I know, get annoyed that when you are in Paris (an international city) or EuroDisney, a place where many nationalities visit, the people refuse to speak English, while when you are in Holland, Germany or any one of the Scandinavian countries they switch to English very easily.

This is very true. French people tend to take things for granted, and believe that everybody should speak French and worship their country. That's what I call arrogance. But anyway...

Cheers.

The Dutch are fine and dandy in my opinion, apart from the guy who hangs around the ticket machine at Amsterdam Central train station hassleing tourists, that guy needs to be kicked up the arse with a wooden clog!

Don't worry - Kirkie's back in Scotland now, so no need to fear further harassments in AMS.
