It's almost like Bill O'Reilly put a spin so hard on this thread that no one is able to see "The Awful Thruth" as Michael Moore would have put it. Even worse, neither side is able to profit from it.

I still don't understand.

My point is this - discourse cannot proceed until you own up to earlier stuff and learn from your mistakes.

And Europeans are particularly arrogant despite the fact they spent the better part of recorded history murdering each other for little to no reason

Well, not to mention the fact they have absolutely no right to be arrogant anyways.

Guessing is about all we're getting … perhaps he can steal another quote to explain himself better

We're not arrogant, just superior

Naturally, this only goes for Scandinavians - and especially for us Danes. We're so much better than everyone else, it boggles the mind.

But we're anything but arrogant

Nothing like a little Darwinism to produce a master race… and, of course, sending our rejects over the ocean…

@DA/PJ -

It must really burn having to constantly be hauled out of the fire by the rejects then, eh?

@hishadow - And pray tell, where are you from?

What fire would this be?

It's most unfortunate that a country with such values has such power, that's very true.

But it could be worse

What kind of master race would we be, if we weren't able to con our rejects into doing our dirty work for us?

Which just goes to show that *they* weren't much of a master race. Compared to the rest of us, that is. Ha!

Yes, I know YOU are.
