A non-white person can be a 'white supremacist,' Ana Navarro declares on 'The View'

Ana Navarro declared on "The View" earlier this week that a person doesn't have to be white to be a "white supremacist." Her pronouncement came after the Hispanic name of the Texas mall mass shooter was disclosed.

What are the details?

The Saturday shooting in Allen left eight dead and multiple victims injured. Despite the deceased mass shooter's Hispanic first and last name, he harbored “neo-Nazi ideation,” fantasized about race wars on social media, and had patches and tattoos on his body that indicated a white supremacist ideology, authorities told the Washington Post.

Fox News added that the suspect had a patch that read "RWDS," which is said to be an acronym for "Right Wing Death Squad."

Navarro naturally was all over the narrative that you don't have to be white to be a "white supremacist" — as well as a lot of other distasteful things.

"We all have to remember that the head of the Proud Boys? His name is Enrique Tarrio. The Proud Boys is a white nationalist group," Navarro told her co-hosts. "Look, being Hispanic or being black does not — or being anything — does not make you immune from being racist, from being radicalized, from being a white supremacist, from being evil, from being homicidal. And we are seeing it over and over again. There are people ... they don’t see themselves as what they are."

Co-host Sunny Hostin said it's "bizarre" to her that that the shooter "happened to be Hispanic and Latino" yet had a "white supremacy moniker on him," Fox News reported, adding that Hostin soon emphasized the threat of white supremacy.

"These are not my words, so people don’t start with the ‘I’m a race-baiter crap,'" Hostin continued. "[FBI Director] Christopher Wray said that the biggest threat to our democracy is white supremacy and domestic terrorism. He testified before Congress," Hostin said.

Growing trend?

Navarro was far from alone in expanding the definition of "white supremacy" to include people of all colors and ethnicities:

Readers of TheBlaze might recall that Navarro in January downplayed the race of the black police officers charged with murdering black man Tyre Nichols in Memphis: "And bad cops can be of any gender and any color — and these cops were blue before they were black."

Left-wing commentator Van Jones said as much about Nichols' brutal killing, indicating that "black people can harbor anti-black sentiments."

Sometimes "white supremacy" is immediately named as a reason behind tragic events — and before all the facts are in — such as the mass shooting in a California Asian community earlier this year. Turns out the shooter was a 72-year-old Asian man.

There also seems to be a growing number of folks who claim things like exercise and poverty and Tesla ownership and teaching kids how to write properly — and even the concept of freedom — are steeped in white supremacy.
