The 4th of July holiday is a day to reflect and celebrate our nation's history, but some have issues with that history and Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz was having none of that on the day after the 4th of July.

Despite Cruz's response to the tweet from Missouri Democratic member of the House of Representatives, some were supportive of her stance.

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

Other were more blunt in their backing of Bush.

Also joining Bush and Buttar was former MSNBC anchor Toure, who 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 claiming that the "United States was founded on the unjust treatment of Native Americans, Africans and other people of color."

The issue of slavery is also being re-examined when it comes to the history of the Alamo. Last week Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick told staff to cancel a Texas history museum event on a book looking at the Alamo's history with slavery.

So, what is your opinion? Do you agree with Senator Cruz or do you side with Representative Bush and her supporters? And is Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick right?
