Rep. Carlos Giménez is spearheading the leadership for the creation of a new position within the Department of State to combat communism. It would be a “Special Envoy to Combat Global Rise of Authoritarian Socialism and Communism.”

As explained by Giménez, the position would be similar to one the Department of State created in 2004 to combat global anti-Semitism.

A strategy against communism

“It is time for the United States to reaffirm its commitment to combating communism and authoritarianism around the world. As the leader of the free world, we must continue to stand up for the universal values of freedom, liberty, democracy, and peace,” Giménez told the Herald.

He added: “By retooling our foreign policy, we are sending a strong signal to the world that there is no room for oppressive governments who stifle free expression, who undermine democratic elections and institutions, and who unravel its people’s economic rights. Communism kills. Authoritarianism kills. Freedom must prevail.”

The Herald explained that “the bill comes after Cuba’s crackdown against protesters in 2021 and after Nicaragua President Daniel Ortega began his fourth consecutive term in office following an election that saw the state arrest opposition leaders and target dissent.”

Will the new Press Secretary be just as awful as Jen Psaki?*
