On July 4th progressive “squad” member Cori Bush caused a firestorm by tweeting “When they say that the 4th of July is about American freedom, remember this: the freedom they’re referring to is for white people. This land is stolen land and Black people still aren’t free.”
Senator Ted Cruz has now fired back tweeting
Hateful, divisive lies.
The Left hates America. Believe them when they tell you this.
Two years ago, Colin Kaepernick tried to spread the same lies on July 4. I responded with the wisdom of the great abolitionist Frederick Douglass:
HATEFUL, DIVISIVE LIES.
THE LEFT HATES AMERICA. BELIEVE THEM WHEN THEY TELL YOU THIS.
