Socialism in America has gone from just a horrible and evil ideology entertained on college campuses to becoming a real threat to freedom and democracy in America. Luckily, we now have “The Force” to battle this evil.
Then there is “the Force,” a group of GOP freshmen positioning themselves as the GOP counterweight to the progressive Squad.
The initial band of four includes Reps. Nicole Malliotakis (R-N.Y.), Carlos Gimenez (Fla.), María Elvira Salazar (Fla.) and Victoria Spartz (Ind.). The lawmakers connected during freshman orientation because of their shared family histories living under dictatorships — and they say the GOP can gain ground on an anti-socialism message.
The foursome in the Force have also sought to bring in other members of the freshman class, particularly in a bid to showcase the record number of women and people of color who joined the ranks of the House GOP in 2020. That includes Mace, as well as Reps. Young Kim and Michelle Steel, Korean immigrants who flipped a pair of swing districts in California and who have long been friends.
We’re proud to have fellow Cuban Americans in Congress band together with other victims of communism to create “The Force” and battle the scourge of socialism threatening America’s freedom.
