Foreigners Speak Candid Truths About Germany in Their Own Words (Part II)
Here is Part II of my series, “Foreigners Speak Candid Truths About Germany”, where we continue to document one of the biggest German shit shows on the internet on true-Germany.com, where foreigners have left a barrage of comments since 2007 regarding their nightmarish experiences living in Germany among the cringeworthy Germans as visible others.

Germans are moody, complain about everything, and are judgemental. They are cold and lack emotion. Every day is different. Almost anything can set them off. Dark personality.

I am a German teacher, and have studied the Germans for many years. I came to the realization that after some 35 years of dedicating myself to this profession, I have had very few positive experiences with Germany and Germans. They are rude and they think they know it all. They are the perfect humans to become nazis, even though they now say that they are not. They are cold and seemingly unfeeling people. I would stop anyone from becoming involved with studying German. Ironic, right? Yes, but that is the way it is.

Germany is a horrible place to be.
If you are just travelling through or visiting for a short time, it may not be so glaring.
But if you stay for a longer period of time, you will probably become depressed or become an arrogant asshole yourself.
I have been living here for far to long, the only reason I am not moving to another country is that I currently don’t have access to the kind of money necessary to just move out of this shithole.
I don’t look very “german” and therefore I can’t count the times I have been called a “monkey” by these imbeciles.
But one day, I am going to leave this place for good, never to return.

The Germans I know are bossy, rude and pompous. My mother-in-law has to be related to Hitler. She works for hard at trying to control others, yet lacks enough control to be happy with herself. Blame it on Hitler? She has the gumption to exclude people even when it causes pain to others. And if you want to know how to live just ask her because she has all the answers. She’s a bitch, married to her son challenges my inner being.

Horrible people in my opinion. They are quite unashamed for anything they’ve done. Germans like to try and draw parallels between things that have nothing to do with one another so they can deflect any blame that they may have to accept. Liars, degenerates, thieves and deceivers. Do not trust them, ever. Do not trust people who lack respect for their neighbors and fellow humans. Germans cannot take criticism for anything. Everything they do is correct in their narrow minds. They truly believe they are incapable of being wrong. They are cold, self centered, egoistic, self righteous, unfriendly, dishonest, untrustworthy, conniving, caculated assholes who deserved worse than what they for financially wrecking Europe. At least 80% of all Germans hold Nazi tendencies and either defend or condone what the Nazis did, because the Nazis were German. And Germans would never critcize other Germans. Nationalistic, ethnocentric assholes who bring their ideology with them wherever they go, especially in places where it isn’t welcome. Germans believe with all their hearts that they are so smart, when in reality they were always behind the British, in almost everything. They are truly creatures

Germans are primitive minded. They lack self awareness and literally break down when even the smallest amount of criticism is directed toward them. They cannot handle anything thrown against them. They can’t bring themselves to admit when they’re wrong, or cede a point. They also lack creativity. All of their car models look the same every year. They haven’t reengineered anything in a long time. Not to mention how ridiculously overpriced their cars are. Their architecture is primitive and so is their infrastructure. But they have this belief that they are the best country in Europe. What a leap of faith to even believe this. And when I hear their language, I want to slam my head against the wall… So primitive.
Germans act with no humanity post of the time and their history shows what they are capable of. Their Wars all but killed Europe. Thankfully the US injected money into the European economy after the War.
Germany also owes a lot of money to countries they ripped off in WW2, and they defaulted on most of their debt. Germany has caused a laundry list of problems in European affairs and they don’t seem to realize it. Which is really annoying. Germans are taught to forget their bad deeds.

Reading these comments, it brings back some truly unpleasant memories.
Germans are indeed the worst of the worst people i have ever met in my life. And believe me i have travelled a lot in all continents and and many many countries.
Let me think: arrogant, barbaric, blunt, abnoxious, sociopath wankers that lack any sense of humility, humanity, respect, integrity, solidatiry and understanding for other people.
Terribly rude psychopaths, they have a unique false sense of superiority that surpasses every imagination.
They lack common sense and emotial binding or basic social skills and will rush to criticise and punish anyone who will stand on their way. Unfriendly and often vindictive, they often try to disguise their nastyness with a false coat of supposed-to-be polite manners that only serves to embarass them.
It comes as no surprise to me to read similar comments in this blog cause they are absolutely true! I am wondering when they will ever stop to be so annoying and provocative. I am also disgusted with the recent policy of their goverment that for one more time think they can dominate Europe and boss everybody around. Kraut bullies, the 4th Reich will lose and this time the loss will be more devastating that both previous times together!! Get it straight, nobody likes your lot cause you are evil scum!! Time to look yourselves in the mirror and do some self-criticism. Auf never again wiedersehen !!!

I am a mixed race girl born and raised in Germany. For the past 10 years I’ve lived in the US and Ireland. I came back to Germany a year ago and it has been the most difficult and frustrating year of my life. Most Germans lack any ability to truly self reflect and realise how innately racist they are, even when they claim not to be. Everything is always everybody else’s fault. If people complain about the majority of Germans being rude well then it must be their own fault. Germans are generally rude(PERIOD)!!!They give no more than they absolutely have to to strangers unless they can gain something. You can say a lot about Americans being superficial but at least if you have a bad day in America, you can bet somebody’s going to give you a smile, somebody’s going to try to help you. In Germany just going outside could make your day even worse. I really wanted to love this country and be proofed wrong, mainly because my family still lives here, but I won’t be able to take it much longer. Once you get to know other cultures and the way people treat each other, even if you’re a stranger, this bullshit becomes unacceptable!! Furthermore Germans think they’re so far advanced in modern society and are so much better than other countries but so many things here are so backwards. For example it took 4 months to get an Internet connection to our home compared to 3 days in Ireland, it’s impossible to find a phone plan with unlimited internet GB, in Ireland we had unlimited EVERYTHING for 20€ a month whereas you’d pay 30€ here for a meagre 5GB. We’ve noticed neighbors spying at us through their spy holes when we had guests over. My sister was asked why her child’s hair is blonde as hers isn’t, by an absolute stranger. Stares ALL THE TIME, how I miss the days of just blending in and not be made to feel uncomfortable because I might look “different”. I experienced mobbing for the first time in my life. The bureaucracy is an absolute nightmare. Blatant discrimination in the workplace and the education system are the norm. Foreigners are to be kept “small”!! I feel comforted by the fact that so many people can see this country for what it really is. Its hostile and negative,always sceptical towards the “different”. Ignorant and insensitive. Don’t get me started on the sense of humour!! It’s funny to make fun of others, even this year one comedian painted himself black cuz that’s whats funny to Germans. Names like “jewstreet” and “moor street” still exist and in a lot of places it’s normal to call a certain sweet a “niggers kiss”. I’ve met so many Germans who have left because they themselves wanted something different and couldn’t take their own culture anymore, so it’s not just a few foreigners who have no right to an opinion anyway in the German mindset. There are a few truly kindhearted people but sadly only a few. If you’re a German who blends in perfectly, you have no fucking clue what it is like for people who for issues of race or language might not fit in so perfectly. If you’re overweight, black, disabled, Turkish, poor, different looking you WILL have a hard time in this country!! However by refusing to change, Germany throws away so much of its potential that other countries welcome with open arms. I want to say I have hope that it will change but this problem is so deep seeded that I just can’t see it changing, because for what? Fortunately I can call many places my home and will be able return to living in friendlier cultures that might not be perfect but will not be hostile towards me either. I love my German family and my German friends that I’ve made outside of this country and I also love certain traits and qualities. But it does not compare to the hate jealousy rough handling that I am exposed to on a daily basis.I guess I will forever have to love this country from a distance.
