(ConservativeInsider.org) – House Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) seems to like making headlines. Her latest stunt has been to partially blame the unrest Cuba’s currently experiencing on the US embargo first put in place in 1962 by President John F. Kennedy. However, fellow lawmaker and Representative Nicole Malliotakis (R-NY) put AOC’s comments in perspective when she declared her a “communist sympathizer.”
On Sunday, June 18, Malliotakis spoke with “Fox News Live” about the anti-government protests happening in Cuba. Being a daughter of a Cuban immigrant herself, Malliotakis understands the havoc Communism can wreak on a nation, noting how the majority of Cuba lives without basic necessities because of the horrific regime.
Malliotakis shared her Fox News interview on Twitter:
Of course Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants to continue to prop up Cuba’s Communist Regime…she is a 'communist sympathizer' who wants to bring socialism to the United States. pic.twitter.com/ep3FNRTC75

On Monday, July 19, Malliotakis spoke with Newsmax on “The Chris Salcedo Show.” She highlighted AOC’s desire to “prop up” the communist regime in Cuba and asked Democrats to back Cuban protests so people around the world can truly understand what’s happening in the country.
When AOC chooses to blame the issues in Cuba on the US embargo rather than the Communist government, she elevates a government based on oppression and restriction rather than freedom. This is the same government that the radical lawmaker is trying to bring to our nation. Thankfully, lawmakers like Malliotakis will not let it stand.
