A lot of Americans don't know this but in certain European countries, especially Germany, it's considered a neo-Nazi death threat if you have your own flag on display. In Germany in particular it's considered hardcore right-wing nationalism to display the German flag (not the Nazi, the ordinary, current German flag). They are only allowed to do it during football games, and then they call it "Fun-Patriotismus" like "play-patriotism."

I once got bored during a German exam and doodled "deutschland deutschland uber alles" on the extra space and my German teacher took me aside the next session and told me she showed all the other German teachers and they assumed I was a Nazi. It's the current national anthem of Germany.

It's not shame, anon. Shame would be a silly thing to feel about one's country (on par with pride, I suppose). If anything, it's bafflement at how Americans feel about America. They turn their pride into a fetish and then normalize it through propaganda. They find it weird that in the rest of the world a firefighter risking his life for a flag would be seen as mildly deranged behaviour, not a thing to be worshipped. That not many countries make children vow their allegiance to the flag before class.
It makes me think about a recent-ish show, The Newsroom. The opening scene had the main guy tell an audience that "America isn't the greatest country in the world." And somehow this was seen as provocative! A man saying that his country wasn't the best was a positively daring move for Americans, or worse, leftist propaganda -- because who else would deny America's greatness but a commie? And meanwhile, never realizing that it is the very concept of 'greatest country' that's so incredible to everyone else, that Americans truly think in terms of a global race to see who's best.

Take this specimen. He finds it weird that someone else would find it weird to write 'Germany, Germany above all' in a school paper. In reality, he'll find that in all countries bar a few outliers this is the speech of the child (see how the above happened during a school examination) and the intelectualy underdeveloped (see how extreme right wing groups are connected with sports fanatism). To the American, however, this is the norm.

>"15. Leftists tend to hate anything that has an image of being strong, good and successful. They hate America, they hate Western civilization, they hate white males, they hate rationality. The reasons that leftists give for hating the West, etc. clearly do not correspond with their real motives. They say they hate the West because it is warlike, imperialistic, sexist, ethnocentric and so forth, but where these same faults appear in socialist countries or in primitive cultures, the leftist finds excuses for them, or at best he grudgingly admits that they exist; whereas he enthusiastically points out (and often greatly exaggerates) these faults where they appear in Western civilization. Thus it is clear that these faults are not the leftist's real motive for hating America and the West. He hates America and the West because they are strong and successful."
>"17. Art forms that appeal to modern leftish intellectuals tend to focus on sordidness, defeat and despair, or else they take an orgiastic tone, throwing off rational control as if there were no hope of accomplishing anything through rational calculation and all that was left was to immerse oneself in the sensations of the moment."
>"20. Notice the masochistic tendency of leftist tactics. Leftists protest by lying down in front of vehicles, they intentionally provoke police or racists to abuse them, etc. These tactics may often be effective, but many leftists use them not as a means to an end but because they prefer masochistic tactics.
