But it's Americans who are stupid and ignorant, right?

More than 50 percent of Britons believe that polygamy is legal in the United States; in fact, it is illegal in all 50 states.

Almost one-third of Britons believe that Americans who have not paid their hospital fees or insurance premiums are not entitled to emergency medical care; in fact, such treatment must be provided by law.

Seventy percent of Britons think the United States has done a worse job than the European Union in reducing carbon emissions since 2000; in fact, America’s rate of growth of carbon emissions has decreased by almost ten percent since 2000, while that of the EU has increased by 2.3 percent.

While it is true that most Americans aren't stupid, we have our share. As I am sure is also the case in England. It is refreshing to see that you are doing your part in the attempt to enlighten the minority on both sides of the pond.
