I believe its plausible.

The post was anecdotal but given our countries less than stellar history, I believe we can make certain leaps to judgment.

Founded by criminals, however, is not so much of a stretch as it is a matter of fact.

Good morning to you too!

I don't remember him being asked to not link anything.
Did he agree to it?
I recall Bob telling him that this wasn't the thread for airing his views on Jews.

He said, "fair enough", I believe.

It's interesting (to me) that in spite of the changes in technology in the last 45 years, there is nothing different in that video from the foul materials that I was exposed to as a teenager.
Can't say I was surprised to see the Nazi Klansman David Duke at the end, either.
Sad ... truly sad.
Hey, Willie. I hope you're having a good day.

It is truly sad.

King George certainly would have considered the founders criminals, but since history is written by the victors, to push the argument is kinda pointless.

That said ... the United States was founded by British citizens and populated by immigrants from Europe. Our society developed from those roots, and there was nothing more or nothing less criminal about how we conducted ourselves than of any other country.

You can view the past conduct of this or any other nation with hindsight and you will find appalling things, things that are all but inconceivable today. However, to conclude from that 20/20 vision that we were criminal is to conclude that Newton or Pasteur or Galileo were stupid, because there is so much more known now about their respective disciplines.

Good!
Then we agree that in our earliest beginnings and for quite some time, we were made up of... criminals!

A rose by any other name...

Our society did develop from those roots and the tree that continues to grow is certainly the direct result of it. Both its good and bad branches.

I'll give you, if need be, that not all were criminals, if you give me in return that most were.

The caveat - Freedom Fighters, without prior criminal records and law abiding, legal immigrants, excluded of course.

This one even includes a reference to the thread hero!!

AUSTIN (The Borowitz Report)—An aide to Rick Perry is confident that the Texas Governor proved he “has what it takes to be President” with his decision on Monday to send troops somewhere for no reason.

By deploying a thousand National Guardsmen to the U.S.-Mexico border, Perry has shown that as President he would be “ready and willing” to use troops without a defined objective, mission, or exit strategy, the aide confirmed.

“Sending troops someplace with no clear idea of why they are going or what they are supposed to be doing once they get there is a key part of the Presidential skill set,” said the aide, Harland Dorrinson.“Rick Perry has just shown that he’s got that nailed down.”

Dorrinson acknowledged that the gold standard for using troops for no reason might have been set by Perry’s predecessor in Texas, George W. Bush, but added,“If anyone can beat that record, it’s Rick.”

According to the aide, Perry’s “extremely Presidential response” to the immigration crisis is already winning him the praise of G.O.P. voters.“Nothing unites Republicans more than standing up to children,” he said.

That many of those who founded our country were, in fact, criminals.

And by extension, those who were sent here from England's prisons to help build the colonies.

What were you saying about King George again?

Though I have seen evidence that England, France, and a couple other European countries did unload some of their criminals here, I haven't seen any evidence to support the conclusion that most early colonists were criminals.

Uh-huh.

Take religious, political and poverty/debtor crimes out of the mix, and the picture looks very different.

Still not sure where you are seeing agreement, though. I guess that's the point.

Nuance.
The settlers of BOTH countries, were the lowest sort of criminals, for the first 400 years.
Nothing really changed over the next 200 - and hasn't yet.
Oh, I can't agree with that.

There was a penal colony in Georgia.

It was not unusual to face "transportation" to any colony in lieu of imprisonment.

All rebels were of course, technically "criminals".

But I think it's a reeeeealy broad brush to say that all, or even most, immigrants to America were "the lowest sort of criminals"

I do think there's an argument to be made that policy then and now is nothing more than "structuring of a country's population". In fact I'd think that would be self-evident.

Far-righties reveal their true guiding lights when they bleat that one out in stoking the fear of the women and children's "army".
