No, but neither can a large amount of atrocities committed by the US. The Founding Fathers would have hanged their heads in shame at My Lai.

The Founding Fathers cared about their own freedom, and not a molecule of turd for anyone else's. These people were fighting for lower taxes and the ability to conquer Native American tribal territory at will. Self determination is good, but they were only ideologically devoted to their own.

They weren't really fighting for lower taxes though. Taxes in America under the Brits were practically nothing, and they only went up after independence.

They were fighting for lower taxes for the landlords. After independence, the landlords only gave their taxes to the US government, which was in their back pocket.

And the landlords were the only ones who could vote too. So much for taxation without representation...

The crowd were rowdy, throwing shit and punches, even cornered one of the redcoats, trying to wrestle the gun out of his hands. The redcoats showed extreme restraint that day, compared to the shit they usually pulled off in their colonies.

there were a dozen of persons with clubs, surrounded the party; twelve sailors with clubs, were by much an overmatch to eight soldiers, chained there by the order and command of their officer, to stand in defence of the Sentry, not only so, but under an oath to stand there, i.e. to obey the lawful command of their officer, as much, Gentlemen of the jury, as you are under oath to determine this cause by law and evidence; clubs they had not, and they could not defend themselves with their bayonets against so many people; it was in the power of the sailors to kill one half or the whole of the party, if they had been so disposed; what had the soldiers to expect, when twelve persons armed with clubs, (sailors too, between whom and soldiers, there is such an antipathy, that they fight as naturally when they meet, as the elephant and Rhinoceros) were daring enough, even at the time when they were loading their guns, to come up with their clubs, and smite on their guns; what had eight soldiers to expect from such a set of people? Would it have been a prudent resolution in them, or in any body in their situation, to have stood still, to see if the sailors would knock their brains out, or not? Had they not all the reason in the world to think, that as they had done so much, they would proceed farther? Their clubs were as capable of killing as a ball, an hedge stake is known in the law books as a weapon of death, as much as a sword, bayonet, or musket.

What did John Adams mean by this?
