[Marxism] Was the American Revolution really just a Counter-Revolution to avoid the British mandate to its Colonies to end slavery?

Against Great Britain's edict to its colonies to end slavery forthwith,
brought about through a legal case made by a slave named James Somerset
back in London, only the slave-holding colonies of British America
flatly refused to follow through. Instead of ending slavery, our much
revered and mythologized founding fathers, with the help of one Mr.
Thomas Jefferson in particular, launched its own counterrevolution
against slavery, and in doing so, unconscionably enshrined the american
revolutionary rhetoric forever in the "false" language of "freedom,"
which all too painfully we have now come to know and understand today
that their freedom meant a special kind of "white man only freedom."
The American counterrevolution against slavery, now shamefully known as,
and misnamed as, "the American Revolution for freedom," succeeded only
because the stars in the geopolitical firmament miraculously aligned
perfectly in its favor. In a perfect storm of confluences, all of the
competing powers had been forced to use Africans to police their
colonies, giving slaves easy access to guns. As a result, the Big Power
players because they were extended and did not have enough white people
to "police" their slave colonies, all began to collapse like an
accordion and fall like a stack of dominoes.
