Every Tory is a Coward... until the cable sweeps?

Why are British people pervasively in the role of authority figure on American trash-TV? Someone explain that to me.

Here's what Crevecoeur said in 1782:
"And what is a Tory? Good God! what is he? I should not be afraid to go with a hundred Whigs against a thousand Tories, were they to attempt to get into arms. Every Tory is a coward; for servile, slavish, self-interested fear is the foundation of Toryism; and a man under such influence, though he may be cruel, never can be brave."
