    'Americans destroy others': actor Depardieu rails against US

      Paris (AFP) - Gerard Depardieu played a Frenchman desperate to do anything to live in America in the 1990 movie "Green Card", but in a new interview, he shows little love for the US.

      "The US? They're a people who have constantly destroyed others," the 66-year-old actor railed in a broadcast Thursday by Paris radio station France Inter, taken from an interview he gave the day before to Russian journalists in Moscow.

      "They fought each other, destroyed the Indians, after that they perpetrated slavery, then there was the civil war," he said.

      "After that, they were the first to use the atomic bomb...No, I prefer being Russian."


      He added: "If the Europeans stopped listening to the Americans, well, I'd be a lot happier."

      Depardieu was given Russian citizenship in 2013 by President Vladimir Putin after publicly criticising France's high taxes and taking up residence abroad.

      In recent years he has delighted in causing controversy and backing causes unpopular in France, especially pro-Russian ones. Most recently, he said he was considering selling all his properties in his native country to cut all ties.

      In an interview in the French press last month he said he was now living in Italy "and soon in Belarus, with the peasants, because it's beautiful and the president (strongman Alexander Lukashenko) is a nice guy".

    Depardieu is French. So he will take up this verbal battle against the United States until someone from the U.S. responds to him where Depardieu will surrender his argument immediately.

    Yet he butters his bread, and by his corpulent appearance, plenty of it, by earning american money.

    There's little doubt we've done some screwed up stuff over the years and still do. But HOW THE FUCK is being a Russian some kind of improvement? :artiejj:

    There are so many bad things to say about this pig, but I'll go with the obvious: Nice Teeth.

    Guess he never got around to learning about:

    1. The Terror during the French Revolution (killing each other)
    2. French Slavery in the carribean (perpetrating slavery)
    3. The endless French civil wars (civil war)
    4. Then of course, the multiple French surrenders.

    While I agree with you I have to ask: What country has been better?

    Russia has killed a lot, including their civilians.
    France had a little revolution and was a colonial power.

    Doing shitty things seems to be human nature.

    Most the killing of the Indians and bringing in slaves was done well before 1776. So that would fall on the French, Spanish and English right?


    Seems most these Euro-douches forget about that part...

    The funny thing is that since "capitalism" took over in Russia, it is has become evil and corrupt. I put "capitalism" in quotes because it is a bastardized version of it. A small corrupt few hold all the wealth (one of them is the Russian government and in particular Putin since the government owns a large share of the major corporations and banks in the country) and most of the country live in lower middle class to impoverished states. People talk about the wealth gap in the United States. Most of Russia would kill for such a wealth gap.

    Many of the billionaires and wealthy people in that country got that way through violence and murder. The Russian mob is bigger and far more violent and sadistic than anything the United States ever had to offer including the Italian and Irish mobs back in the 20s and 30s.

    This is one American cemetery in France. Frog pussies should lick Yankee balls daily in gratitude.

    His Russian history seems to be a bit weak as well.

    Truth. I'm not saying anywhere else is better......maybe Sweden.

    I was just saying that nothing he said was wrong.
