Texas Republican U.S. Rep. Mayra Flores — who last month flipped a seat in a historically Democrat region along the southern border — hit back at a New York Times hit piece, which ominously warned, “The Trump age has given rise to a new brand of Texas Republicans, one of whom is already walking the halls of Congress: the far-right Latina.”
The newly elected congresswoman told Newsmax host Chris Salcedo that the Times labeled her and other Hispanic conservatives as ”far right” because the outlet is ”anti-God, anti-family values, and anti-job opportunities.”
”They don’t know us. They have no idea who we are … they just do not represent our community,” Flores stated.
‘”I feel that nobody really cares about the New York Times, especially in my district, where we’re worried about health care. We’re worried about the cost of gas, the cost of food. That’s what we’re worried about, not the New York Times. None of this nonsense that’s happening in Washington, not ‘Latinx,’ none of that. […] We’re focused on the issues that really matter to the American people,” she continued.
Flores made it clear she does not consider the New York Times to be “a legitimate news organization” and she refuses to “give them any attention.”
”They claim that they’re for immigrants. I’m an immigrant. I’m from Mexico. And yet, all they do is hate me,” she added.
On “The Rubin Report,” BlazeTV host Dave Rubin and panelists Sara Gonzales, Nick Searcy, and Rebel News’ Ezra Levant discussed the New York Times’ racist hit piece and how Democrats and the mainstream media — who continue to ignore the real issues facing Hispanic voters like inflation and the Texas border crisis — demonize conservative minority leaders when the Hispanic community abandons the left and votes Republican.
