WASHINGTON, D.C. - The United States has today denied any wrongdoing of fostering negative feelings towards the French before the War on Iraq began. Many critics of America, mainly liberals, have accused the United States of creating prejudice to a designated group, similar to that of Hitler creating anti-Semitic feelings in Germany during the 1930's.

When President Bush was interviewed, his response to the anti-French feelings was, "Which country inspired them to overthrow their monarchy? Which country saved their asses during WWII?"

After President Bush was told that the French had saved the United States during a critical period of the Revolutionary War, he said, "We're still better than them."

This undocumented comment by President Bush was followed by many claims from the Democratic Party that President Bush had no right to publicly denounce the French on an international stage. Many Republicans argued back that the President was entitled to the right of free speech, and the media was entitled to that right as well.

Many signs of anti-French feelings have appeared in the media through commercials and one major fast food chain, Jack-In-The-Box have changed one of their items on the menu from ‘French Fries' to ‘Natural Cut Fries.' Reports have showed that ‘Natural Cut' appeals to many Americans, health wise since they contain the word ‘natural' and it instills patriotism by removing the word ‘French' before the word ‘fries.'

A scrawny liberal nerd had lamented that the country was going downhill as the prejudice against the French was biased and unjustified, whereas a redneck conservative jerk had shouted angrily that France sucks because it was cold and that French chicks smell like cigarettes and don't shave.

The Anti-French mood has dominated American politics for so long that many can not recall how this all began. Several speculations have emerged such as French opposition to the US led invasion of Iraq led to the creation of negative feelings towards the French. Another one is that the country of France has been ungrateful to the country that had single handedly tackled the Nazi War Machine that ravaged Europe by storming the Normandy Beaches and liberating Paris. Neither of those reports have been tested for historical or political accuracy.

Whether this pointless hatred will be a stupid grudge or something that will cling on for years to come, the anti-French mood has apparently dominated many minds of young Americans. Many have tossed away the yellow rubber bracelets that say ‘Live Strong' to ones consisting of red, white, and blue, which say ‘France Sucks' or ‘America Rules #1.'
