-->[[EvilBrit We play bad guys in Hollywood movies because of the Revolutionary War.]] Yes, thereís no two ways about it. And the French, who were on your side in the Revolutionary war, they play more esoteric characters. They have characters who turn up and go,\\ "My name is Pierre! I come from Paris. Iíve come to have sex with your family."\\ "Help yourself... because of the debt of honor to General Lafayette."\\ You know your own history, right? You don't know who he is, do you?! What was it? The Spanish-American War? The French Banana War? What? The Revolutionary War! Hung out with Washington. Lafayette. Street named after him in New York. Forget it!

This trope started to become in bad taste after the Charlie Hebdo shooting of January 2015, but firmly entered DiscreditedTrope territory after Paris's second terrorist attack on November 13, 2015.
