1. What is Fascinating to Me About that Clip

is the Taiwanese view of Russia. They apparently think it's a libertarian hellscape like Texas is trying to be.

2. yep

They definitely are not shy to use whatever stereotypes they have... and that's obviously how they see Russia.

These Taiwanese vid makers are very prolific, they put out a few of these animated videos a day.

9. Putin

has a "mentor" named Alexandr Dugin who possesses a very radical type of ideology, similar to Alex Jones as viewing the United States as the center of the Illuminati. He desires a Imperial Russian state ruled by a King and the Orthodox Russian church (but not in those words), and this is why you see the attack on gay rights and other things in that country. He also has other strange things, for example suggestions of invading other countries and renaming them according to their ancient names.

23. I think we need more of this.

I am appreciate that foreign news outlets are teasing out these differences in ideology. All Americans need to know how stupid we appear by giving into the nonsense of our ultra-right wing.

4. I know I'm bad, but I had to laugh at how they depicted all the Texans as FAT and wearing

cowboy hats!



We can't do that on DU (stereotype) ourselves.

5. That is the Foreign View of the US

It's bigoted, but like a lot of bigotry, there is a basis in reality.

If you've ever seen The Triplets of Belleville, you have to conclude that the French have the same view of Americans as the Taiwanese.

19. Uk has the same view too

I would say it's standard around the world.

Dara O'Briain asked a UK crowd to shout out stereotypes of different countries,

Americans, fat and stupid.

11. Was actually true

Houston was the country's 'fattest' city not too long ago.

Oops, actually it made the #1 spot again!!

Houston is “America’s Fattest City

http://www.tmdailypost.com/article/media/houston-america-s-fattest-city

snippet:

"The March 2012 issue of Men’s Fitness includes the magazine’s first “America’s Fattest Cities” survey since 2009, and yes … Houston, we have a problem. (We hate that cliché, too, but Men’s Fitness itself already claimed the stock “everything’s bigger” joke.)

As Nate Millard’s feature (which is not yet available online) began:

We’ll spare you the predictable Texas-size jokes, but one thing Houston seems to maintain - and expand yearly - is the circumference of its collective paunch…

…according to the (Center for Disease Control) a whopping 34% of H-Town residents are overweight. In previous surveys, we’d claimed Houston was on the upswing in the weight-loss department, but there’s evidently been a bit of a regression since we last checked in.

Indeed, Houston had hovered around fifth or sixth between 2004 and 2009, after famously topping the magazine’s list for three straight years from 2001 to 2003."

22. This makes it even more amusing.

I mean, the truth does kind of hurt, doesn't it?

3. I've seen similar videos - they do fine work.

 

Always bashing the Republicans and seeing it from their view...

Way to go Taiwan! Down with China! (*wink*)

That's just up their alley?

Too many characters?

16. Thanks, by the way Insult the Comic Dog

is one of the funniest things I've ever seen, I loved the RNC and Occupy segments.

btw I posted the video in GD but no one seems to like it! It is a little odd..

17. It has a bit of a wingnut spin (bringing up the timing)

but on the other hand, who would take it at all seriously?

These must be the same animators who did the Tiger Woods "re-enactment" three years ago. Rachel should pick this up as a tribute to Keith.
