Speaking to ITV Central, Aidan Burley said his tweets stemmed from watching the opening ceremony and seeing "things like the CND symbol being lit up for 20 minutes".
At that point, he says, "I started to question why this kind of left-wing politics was creeping in to the opening ceremony."
He adds that with the "constraint" of a 2,0000-year history to document, "it seems a bit strange that he [Danny Boyle] would have such a big focus on rap music...it seemed like there were some trite attempts to focus on some modern parts of our multiculturalism."
He also said: "I think it is sad that towards the end we had Shami Chakrabarti from the left-wing campaigning organisation Liberty carrying the flag."
