Cruz was responding to MSNBC's segment where they accused white people of not accurately telling the story of Thanksgiving, and blaming the pilgrims for the "white supremacy" affecting the nation today.

MSNBC posted on Twitter Saturday.

"’Instead of bringing stuffing and biscuits, those settlers brought genocide and violence,’ Gyasi Ross says about the history of American Thanksgiving.’"

"That genocide and violence is still on the menu."

Gyasi Ross explained that white people had created an inaccurate image of Thanksgiving.

"The mythology of Thanksgiving closely mirrors the mythology of America," Ross says in the clip claiming that the idea of "equal exchange" between Native Americans and settlers on Thanksgiving is how America "wants to see itself."

"The truth, of course, of Thanksgiving, is much different," Ross continues.

"The truth is pilgrims did not bring turkey, or sweet potato pie, or cranberries to Thanksgiving."

"They could not. They were broke. They were broken. Their hands were out. They were begging. They brought nothing of value."

Ross claims pilgrims were fed by Native Americans despite bringing nothing to the table.

Gyasi Ross explained that white people had created an inaccurate image of Thanksgiving.

Ross also blasted "state-sponsored" violence in today’s society, saying it comes from "white supremacy" as photos of Michael Brown, Breonna Taylor, and Trayvon Martin floated across the screen.

"Return the land," Ross said.

"Match the mythology. Then and only then we can all be equally thankful."

Other conservatives joined Cruz in his criticism of the network.

"We should encourage this from Democrats- more woke lunacy, please," Sexton tweeted.

"Degrade the greatest country ever created. Spit all over our traditions.

"Finally, a solid majority of Americans are seeing the Left for what it is.

"A reckoning is coming.

"Midterms will be just the start."

"I'm just surprised this incredibly stupid MSNBC lady didn't call the Pilgrims buckle-hatted Kyle Rittenhouse," Federalist co-founder Ben Domenech tweeted.
