Unbelievable!

A Usanian female person from some obscure corner of a place called "Indiana" actually has the temerity to ask Cestmoi about the origin of the word "Usanian" in NYTimes, no less.

I am coming to the conclusion that the perfidious Anglais's  most heinous crime against humanity is to conceive and breed these colonial upstarts.

So - with that logic you just use the abbreviated initials, not any part of the full name.
Therefore PRC = PRCnian
UKnian
ROKnian
NZnian
(If there is a New Zealand where did the old one go?)
Mexico should be Mexiconian
Canada should be Canadanian
Australia should be Australianian
Citizens of France should not be called French, they should be Francenian
Citizens of Japan should be called Japanniam, not Japanese
???
I'm just here for the money

Its meant to be derogatory.  That is why he uses it.

Its arrogance.   

The idea is that we need 'corrected'.  Calling ourselves 'americans' is a crime because all the canadians, mexicans, brazilians, chileans, etc want to call themselves 'american' and we're just big jerks for using the term.

The problem with cestmoi is he is exactly like seneca.

He voluntarily choose to live in a foreign country in which he feels superior to everyone else there.

He needs to teach us a lesson in manners because we are all bad, and he is good.  

He lives in the US, but refuses to be counted as one of us.  How could he be a fellow american?  He is soooooooooooooooooooooo much better than everyone else here.

Is that about right cestmoi?

So why did you choose to live here?  How are you ANY better than anyone else who came to this country?

And why is it 'Unbelivable'?

No one in the US uses this term.  No one.

Its a derogatory term.  No one calls ourselves 'yankz' either.

You are probably part of the .002% of haters in the US that would use a term like that.
