He's Scottish. Kilt Happens.

The Scots who immigrated to the U.S. to escape the economic desperation of the hills of Scotland. So they arrived in the U.S., took one look at the Appalachian Mountains, and went "Look! Isolated, unproductive hills with no chance of economic opportunity! Let's move there."

Yes but there was less chance of the English trying to kill them there.

Garrison Keillor made a similar point about the Norwegians leaving Norway because it was horrible, cold, rocky and hard to farm. The liked Minnesota because it reminded them of home.

But of course the original Scots came from Ireland. Then later on some of them went back and turned into Orangemen. Bad idea all round.

The Orange Order is an organisation which protects the UK from the evils of Catholicism by invoking the name of a gay Dutchman who had no right to the throne in the first place. Every year they incite religious hatred and bigotry to celebrate a battle that happened back when your country still acknowledged the truth that it is nothing more than a colony.

And the ones that were arrested and sent here! Or the ones that sought gold, found California was full and came here instead.
