tradesmen defined anti-american as:

"To be against America or Americans."

What exactly does that mean? To be against America. In what aspect?

I live here, I was born here, I pay taxes. I don't plan to move. I like it here.

Since I live here and I like it here, would you consider me pro-American?

Some people see it as being against Americans as individual people (like being racist, except against anyone from America).

Others see it as being against the American government or parts of the American government. So technically, an American could be anti-American.
I can't think of an example...

The mother of all anti's, second only to anti-abortion. A rhetorical handgrenade thrown at anyone who questions/critisizes the state, or who otherwise fulfills democracy. Aslo known as intellectuals, academics, the French, Democrats, left-wingers, activists, thinkers, the ROW, and...well....pretty much anyone who has the mental capacity to think for themselves.

A broad sentiment of opposition to things, policies, or aspects that are American, in recent times associated with opposition to the United States — though originally it applied to criticisms of all nations and peoples of the Western Hemisphere. Also, a person who expresses such sentiment.

Anti-Americanism in its most stereotypical form is the irrational hatred of the United States and all its people, thankfully only espoused by a minority to which the quote below applies.

In more broad, ambiguous cases, it can also be construed as simple, fair criticism of foreign policy, culture, worldview, etc., which can come from people both at home and abroad.

In other cases, it can be a propaganda vehicle in troubled countries like Iran and North Korea, where such a common sentiment unites the people and distracts them from the numerous social problems that surround and plague them.
"Anti-Americanism is a horror. ... It is a magnet of the worst. In the entire world and in France in particular, everything that is the worst in people's heads comes together around anti-Americanism: racism, nationalism, chauvinism, anti-Semitism."
~ Henri-Bernard Levy
