The View’s Ana Navarro: Being Hispanic or Black ‘Does Not Make You Immune’ From Being a White Supremacist

Lindsay Kornick, Fox News, May 8, 2023

While discussing the recent Dallas mall shooting, Ana Navarro told her “View” co-hosts that being Hispanic or Black doesn’t make a person “immune” from supporting White supremacy.

According to law enforcement sources, 33-year-old Mauricio Garcia was the suspect behind a deadly mass shooting in an Allen, Texas mall on Saturday. The shooting left eight dead along with several others injured from the attack.

While investigations are still ongoing, an anonymous law enforcement source claimed that federal officials are seeing if Garcia was motivated by White supremacist ideology. The suggestion came from alleged social media accounts by Garcia that spouted extremist views along with patch on his chest that read, “RWDS,” supposedly an acronym for “Right Wing Death Squad.”

Though her co-hosts were surprised by the claim, Navarro insisted that the shooter’s Hispanic background should not bar him from becoming a White supremacist.

“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. 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 who, they don’t see themselves as what they are,” Navarro said.
