It is called being descriptive. Trying to add detail to the story. No different than if she had said they were all brunettes, or all were eating nachos at the time.

It was being descriptive in a rude and insulting way. It implied that she was only upset with foreigners who were speaking another language. As many other have pointed out she had no way of knowing if they were from another country or not.

I don't think the op in her original post meant to be rude or insulting. She even said she did not know how to be politically correct.

Then she shouldn't have said it. She could have simply said her pet peeve was people talking loudly during the ride. If she had did so it wouldn't have been offensive. As it is stated it sounds like the only people who bother her are people who are visiting the US.

Exactly. She said she was upset by foreigners who talk loud, not people who talk loud. She singled out foreigners, which either means only foreigners talk loud (absurd) or she is only offended by foreigners

She said no such thing. Maybe she's ok with English "loud talkers" (or hasn't encountered them at Disney) but doesn't like loud talkers in other languages.

She never said she was offended by foreigners (unless they talk loud). And she never said only foreigners talk loud.

I don't think so nor did others who stated the same thing. I found it rude, you didn't; I don't live in the US, you do.

Mine is foreign people (people from other countries, nationalities, whatever is the politically correct way of saying it ) not shutting up during attractions that you need to be listening to. Carousel of Progress has always been my favorite Disney attraction, and this time I took my adult DD with me who had never been to Disney before so it was her first time to experience this attraction.

Are you offended because you are from Canada? I am Canadian and I understand what she meant. I don't feel offended.

Maybe what she meant to say didn't come out right, but I think you are being a bit too nitpicky with her choice of words.

And if I was in Quebec in a movie or some other attraction where they spoke French only and I was rude and spoke English the whole time so all the other people in the audience could not hear....I would expect to be described as the rude FOREIGNER when someone decided to complain about me on a message board. Because in that scenario...that is WHAT I AM!!!! But then again I might be Canadian, one never knows It is a description of what happened nothing more.

She could have told the same story and described the people with Philly accents or NY accents, I grew up in both areas and have had both accents...I would not be offended, I would have figured that was part of the story....


I saw somewhere on FB or maybe even here a funny skit about being so politically correct anymore that when the police asked a witness to describe the murderer they could not bc they were too afraid to offend anyone with a description.

I think it was offensive because I am from outside of the US. I don't like people talking loudly in an attraction either but I wouldn't single out a group as a foreigner, especially if there was no way of knowing they were from another country. Loud talkers are rude, doesn't matter where they are from.
