McALLEN, Texas — Less than 50 protesters gathered this week to protest the appearance of Senator Ted Cruz at the McAllen Fourth of July Parade. That protest was dutifully amplified by state and local news outlets, however.
In the article Ted Cruz gets an earful in McAllen for July 4, the Texas Tribune’s Patrick Svitek claimed that Cruz “predictably got an earful from protesters, many upset with the Senate’s efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare.” That article was then reprinted by various local outlets including ValleyCentral.Com (KGBT) and other TV stations in Texas.
The story revolves around the moment when Cruz took the stage to speak about the significance of the holiday and his family history. During Cruz’s speech, one side of about 50 or fewer protesters wearing blue shouted their opposition with pro-immigration chants. On the other side, a larger group of about 70 or more supporters wearing red and white shirts shouted “USA” repeatedly, trying to drown out the other group.
Cruz acknowledged both the protesters and the supporters stating that unlike in other countries, in the U.S. opposing views are protected and fought for. “Isn’t freedom wonderful,” he said.
