New York Republican Representative-elect Nicole Malliotakis told Fox News on Friday, Nov. 13, that along with the newly elected members of the House, they intend to form an “anti-socialist squad” to counter the ideas of the radical-left Democrats acting under the Squad.
Being interviewed on “Fox & Friends,” the newly elected Republican representative, Malliotakis, made strong statements against the radical left promoted by the Democrats. She warned that the people, at least in New York City, are tired of the measures the Democrats are taking by giving free rein to left-wing extremisms.
“I can tell you here in NYC, and I assume in cities across America, people were really fed up with the direction the Democrats were trying to take us,” said Malliotakis, who will represent New York’s 11th district.
Malliotakis especially targeted New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), a member of the Squad, whom she blamed for running the city to the extreme left.
She also criticized her opponent, Rep. Max Rose (D-N.Y.), whom she accused of having joined the Defund the Police movement after committing himself to radical leftist movements.
Malliotakis, the daughter of a Cuban father who managed to take refuge in the United States by fleeing Castro’s communist regime, was very concerned about the advances of the left, not only in New York City, but throughout the country and even within the House.
She is looking forward to the great challenge of seeking a balance in the face of leftist tendencies that are undermining the freedoms, the economy, and the opportunities of Americans.
Malliotakis highlighted as something positive that together with her will be 35 new Republican women who will serve from 2021 in the House, carrying “new and much needed blood. In addition, they will be accompanied by a number of minorities, such as immigrants from Korea, Cuba, and Ukraine.”
Malliotakis said, “You have AOC and the socialist squad.” But she also left a reassuring message saying, “Vow we have individuals who come from very diverse backgrounds—many of whom fled communism or socialism themselves or are like me, a daughter of a Cuban refugee—to be those messengers to say why socialism is bad and to push back and to make sure that we fight to preserve our freedoms and liberties and we reopen our economy, we keep the capitalist system that provides jobs and opportunity.”
Malliotakis, with a speech centered on recovering law and order in New York City, devastated after several months of violent protests by leftist demonstrators and hit by the restrictive measures taken by its Democratic authorities to supposedly confront the CCP virus, defeated Rep. Max Rose (D-N.Y.).
As reported by Fox News, Malliotakis gained a dramatic and early 16-point lead. She won 58 percent of the votes cast during early voting and on Election Day, while Rose got only 42 percent.
