    Everything they say is true... want to try us?😈 Europe is like the American Media. They do
    Nothing without our leadership. The people expressing opinions about fat, loud etc are talking about
    The costs. Go to Texas or Oklahoma, Nebraska.... The middle of our country is where the worriers
    Reside. Liberal America is a different culture, more like Europe but with no discipline. At least
    Europeans ride their bikes. Only exercise Liberals in America gets is walking in a protest to
    Save something or rant about equal rights for the other Lemmings.
    Don’t forget my friends, If America did not invest in WW2? You would not have a country 💪

    Odd that they are puzzled by the US 2nd Amendment when they were conquered by the Germans in WW2, and many people there killed. The Swiss have more guns per capita than the US, and they weren't attacked by the Germans.

    The vid title is misleading. The question asked is "What are Dutch stereotypes about Americans?" Not "What are your personal feelings about Americans?" So the viewing audience is left to decide and debate about whether an individual interviewed speaks for him/herself, or the general public.
    That said, clearly the older woman and man were primarily speaking for themselves. The rest appeared to focus on what they've heard from others and the media.
    And finally, the interviewer needs more work on his role and his capacity to perform it, particularly his lame attempts to summarize his misunderstandings.
    Thumbs down.

    the negative comments are really sad. and not true. I was born in the Netherlands and now live in America. People are the same all over the world good and bad. In America people are more open and friendly. I'm not fake and for those who put down Americans you can kiss my ass. And don't forget if it was not for America maybe you would be speaking German because America and Canada kicked Hitlers Ass.

    Im an American and I lived in Holland for three years. I will like to say mostly positive things about many Dutch people but there was a lot that I thought was negative. When I lived there in Holland it was extremely left wing, I think things are changing now. But, when I was there, I used to say "Holland was the last country that wanted to join the Soviet Union but got turned away for being too keen!" Americans like me hate socialists and communists, so, the Dutch Nationalists I support but left wingers I hate as much as any other Lefty, even American lefties!

    None knows what Americans are not even Americans because the myth- narrative has Total Prevalence over reality. 2 years ago, University students were given detailed social, cultural, economic and political facts about the U.S. and about Sweden. They were asked to match the information to the proper country. The majority thought that the U.S was Sweden and Sweden was the U.S!
    I know why this happened but I doubt anyone can explain it.

    Barely anyone he asked was Dutch. I think that shows that the stereotype of Americans being ignorant or clueless about other cultures might be a little true. Surely when all of the English people spoke, it was clear that they were English.
    Also, Amsterdam is nowhere near the most densely populated city in Europe, so that is most definitely not a fact.

    I think most people have it wrong. Americans tend to be very nationalistic. They think their nation is better than any other, they are very proud of the accomplishments of their nation. I feel europeans are far more elitist in terms of individual skills and abilities. They do tend to feel they are intellectually and morally superior.

    And Americans stereotype that the Dutch walk around in stupid little hats and wooden shoes or for Amsterdam specifically, that they are constantly stoned out of their minds and basically useless. Having traveled outside of the US several times I’ve found that this idea that most people have negative views on Americans aren’t necessarily all that accurate most people I’ve come across seem to understand that the stereotype of Americans is just that, a stereotype. Just like most Americans understand that the idea of Dutch people being blonde and empty headed is just a stereotype, something you see a lot in movies but isn’t necessarily true.

When I think of loud... I think Italian, German, Irish in a funny way... and the loudest... CHINESE who will yell across restaurants.

We put our noses in other countries business, most countries request the assistance of the US. Pretty sure it was the US that basically kept Europe free. Still protecting Europe decades later. One person says Americans are all about themselves, but none say what the US does for the rest of the world on the American taxpayer’s dime. Europeans seem a bit ungrateful. Just saying... But I like Europeans, at least the ones that I know that now live in the US.
