So, this happened during the USA vs Germany game last Thursday, and this is what I have to say…
Dear USA, 
you have 5 dual national German-Americans on your team. Remember that when you insult half their identity. 
using the hashtag ‘#backtobackworldwarchamps’ does not make you funny. It may make you feel better, but it also makes you look incredible stupid.
Germans are aware of their past. They are constantly battling with the actions of their ancestors. Many have little to no “Nationalstolz” (national pride) because they have seen where blind trust and loyalty can lead, and therefore may be proud of individual moments or specific things like their Fußball team, but not necessarily of “Germany” as a whole. (For a concrete example: In America, I see US flags everywhere- on front porches, in front of many business buildings, and schools, and on the lapels of politicians– it’s an everyday thing. The only German flags I would see during my day in Germany are at the Parliament building and now as a few fans stumble home after watching a Fußball game.)
Not all Germans living during WW2 were Nazis, just like not all US citizens supported the invasion of Iraq. 
Please stop making such stupid comments. Support your team, yes, and wave your flag and go ahead and hate on the German team itself, but believe me- Germans hate on themselves enough without you making tasteless comments about their past. 
Thanks. Feel free to send me an ask if you want to talk about it– whether or not you agree, I’d love to hear your thoughts. 

Thank you happilyimperfect05! Ever wondered, why Germany is still, well not exactly scared, but hesitant to take a bigger role in world politics? ^^^Thats part of the reason^^^

Besides, there are Germans who aren’t white, there are Germans who are Jewish, there are Germans who are queer/trans, there are Germans who are disabled or belong to other groups that were persecuted during WWII. If you call a German person a Nazi simply because of their nationality, you’re being extremely insensitive. Don’t do that. Ever.
It’s like calling all US-Americans regardless of ethnic or cultural background “KKK members”. Also, while we’re on the topic: Own up to your own genocidal history first before you start to point fingers and act all high and mighty about something you probably know nothing about.
Especially if you’re just pissed because of something as trivial as a sports event. You have the luxury of thinking that “Nazi” is a perfectly acceptable insult, but for many of us, that word is a painful reality, a constant reminder of a violent, terrifying past that still has consequences today.

Men still have trouble recognizing that a woman can be complex, can have ambition, good looks, sexuality, erudition and common sense. A woman can have all those facets, and yet men, in literature and in drama, seem to need to simplify women, to polarize us as either the whore or the angel. - Natalie Dormer
