I see the concept of Britishness as an artificial identity created to dillute and eventually replace English identity. The concept of Britishness was created to benefit the royals and the elite, it works against the native English. It also significantly furthers the mass immigration agenda as anyone can be "British", whereas only native English people can really be English.

In fact, for the most part it's only English people who even identify as British. Most Scottish, Welsh and NI people do not, some may claim to when it suits them, but generally they will always identify first and foremost as Scottish, Welsh or Ulster/Irish. Most of them do not feel strongly British at all, and if a foreigner claimed they were "British" I have no doubt that most of them would quickly correct them.

Is there a point to this? It's pretty much like someone who is identified by the Europeans or the Asians as "American" but he will tell you he is a Texan. It's a concept of "granularity" ...the general encompasses the specific, and in many cases the specific is unnecessary for others to care about, and is important only to the individual.

If were English (or British) instead of American, my response to you would be along the lines of :

Sod off, you wanker arsehole!

But the union of crowns was in 1707, thus why they are called British for the most part. But due to historical animosity, some prefer calling themselves Scottish or Welsh, especially since foreigners (Americans) think Britain and England are interchangeable.
