Republican Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has blasted far-left Democrat Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) for spreading “hateful, divisive lies” when she claimed, on Independence Day, that America exists on "stolen land."

Bush, a Black Lives Matter leader prior to being elected to Congress last year, tweeted that the Fourth of July is only about freedom for white Americans.

"When they say that the 4th of July is about American freedom, remember this: the freedom they’re referring to is for white people," Bush, a member of AOC's "Squad" of Marxist Democrats, said on social media Sunday. 

Cruz slammed Bush's comments, likening her remarks to former football quarterback Colin Kaepernick kneeling during the national anthem to protest. 

"Hateful, divisive lies," Cruz wrote on Monday.

"The Left hates America. Believe them when they tell you this."

Cruz pointed out that former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick "tried to spread the same lies on July 4" two years ago.

He shared a link to an article from July 2019 highlighting his tweets pushing back against Kaepernick at that time.

Bush turned heads on Sunday when she claimed in a post about Independence Day that black people in America "still aren't free" and that the U.S. is "stolen land."

"When they say that the 4th of July is about American freedom, remember this: the freedom they’re referring to is for white people," the lawmaker wrote.

"This land is stolen land and Black people still aren’t free."

The Missouri Democrat was joined by a chorus of progressives who agreed with Bush’s claims, including congressional candidate Shahid Buttar.

Buttar praised Bush and wrote in his own tweet that it is "almost as if our entire country has been brainwashed to ignore our history —and how its worst elements continue today—despite our self-congratulatory rhetoric."

Also joining Bush and Buttar was former MSNBC anchor Toure.

Toure tweeted "F--k Independence Day" and claimed, "the whole reason the Colonies wanted independence was because Britain was moving toward abolishing slavery."

Actress Alyssa Milano also posted a TikTok video to trash the USA.

She claimed that the "United States was founded on the unjust treatment of Native Americans, Africans and other people of color."
