Why do Europeans criticize America even though their own countries have a dark past?

As an American, I've really gotten tired of the criticism.

"You don't have universal health care."
"You're all a bunch of trigger-happy gun lovers."
"You built your country on slavery and the slaughter of Native Americans."

Did you forget about your monarchs who killed their 17 year old wives for not producing a male child? Did you forget about your psycho leaders who slaughtered Jews? Did you forget about the slave ships you built? The crusades you waged?

Oh, and here we Americans go again -- funding the end of yet another one of your ridiculous wars. Why? So you can turn around and criticize us for being the greatest country on Earth? Seriously, we're a super power. We don't need free health care. And yes, if some foreign invaders come over here starting some crap, we will pull out our guns.

Now, go ahead and get yourself some Starbucks coffee and sit there on your American invention called the internet and go ahead and criticize me.
America owns you

Can we just get this straight once and for all? The Internet is an American invention. So, please for the love of God, go to your medieval castles and criticize us on parchment paper or whatever makes you feel better: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet
