New York GOP congresswoman-elect reveals interest in forming House anti-socialist 'Squad'

Newly elected House GOP members could form an "anti-socialist squad" to counter the ideas of far-left Democrats, Rep.-elect Nicole Malliotakis, R-N.Y., told "Fox & Friends" Friday.

“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, which covers Staten Island and parts of South Brooklyn.

Malliotakis added that political figures like New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had moved the city “so much to the left.”

“And you have individuals like my opponent [Democratic Rep. Max Rose], who had rallied with the 'Defund the police' movement and really had just gone along with the gang," she said, "and people want to see a two-party system, they want to see checks and balances, and I will be the only Republican representing our city in Washington and it is a much-needed voice and perspective.”

2. As long as we have an anti-fascist squad to go along with it.

Fascists have actually declared war on the USA in the past (in case any Republicans have forgotten what World War II was). Socialists have not.

3. I think...

... Democrats would be wise to make the new QAnon members of Congress the "face" of the Republican party. I don't see this happening, yet... maybe Dems are waiting until they take office? I'd start right now and make them the most famous Republicans in the USA, alongside the Loser Donald.

4. Right. New QAnon members of Congress must be the face of the GOP.

The entire Republican party has been fighting New Deal social programs since the days of FDR, there's no need for some anti-socialist squad.

5. Precisely

This is nothing new, just perhaps more visible in our world of social media and 24/7 breaking noise cable channels.

6. She is a liar.

Max Rose did not support “defund the police.”

This woman is another loathsome republican. They just can’t stop telling lies. It must be a genetic trait.

7. The district is filled with right-wing nut jobs

Just attending an anti-police violence rally was his doom.

8. Nobody Cares, Nicole.

BTW, Democrats have the majority in the House. Didn't you know that?
