I think he was trying to be funny or sarcastic. There's a big problem with sarcasm/humor being taken seriously on the internet. I would not enforce sarcasm brackets -- but sometimes people come off offensive when they don't mean to be. However, no, the American faction is not the European invaders only. It is a mixture of -- Native Americans, European settlers, African American slaves, and Mexican immigrants. The history of America therefore begins where its settlers originated -- not just from Europe where European history books begin to tell it. We learn even in U.S. history classes that our history starts over 12,000 years ago when there was a small piece of land between America and Eastern Asia that allowed our Native American ancestors to pass through into Canada and the U.S. Incidently enough the Native Americans have passed on a lot of their genetic code into the American generations. Such as myself -- While you may believe these Native Americans don't count -- much is the same in England's history with conquering and mixing of races.
