Immigrant Karol Markowicz On Why She Loves America And New York
The Federalist Staff
On this episode of The Federalist Radio Hour, Karol Markowicz joined Ben Domenech to discuss her view of America, including her thoughts on patriotism and her experience as a New Yorker, after having immigrated to America from the USSR. Markowicz is a columnist at the New York Post and is a contributor at The Spectator and the Washington Examiner.
Markowicz argued Americans should prioritize their country and its needs above political victories. True patriots will want the best outcome for the whole of the nation despite any favor it may bring to their opposing political party.
In many countries, she said, leaders have ultimate authority. In the United States, however, the president only has so much power and the power of individuals shouldn’t be underestimated.
“I don’t really believe in Trump’s America or Barack Obama’s America,” she said. “It’s our America.”
