i’ve seen a lot of ridiculous and embarrassing posts, but this one takes the fucking cake.
I hate the way the American Revolution is portrayed, especially England. The USA was 13 colonies. Do people even realise how big the Empire was? And the fact that England recovered pretty damn quick and proceeded to take over other countries suddenly means nothing? There is no way England would have cried at losing America- he’d have only been mildly annoyed at losing resources. African colonies were the favourites because they had sugar cane, and then India became the undeniable favourite: “The crown jewel of the British Empire”. America was never the favourite, and I wish the fandom and the comic didn’t make it seem that way.
Also: How the hell does England not even recognise Canada?! A colony that didn’t rebel, was pretty loyal, and is a member of the Commonwealth? It’s completely nonsensical. (x)
