Ana Navarro calls out Tucker Carlson for spreading Buffalo shooting conspiracy theory

During View On Monday, May 16, political strategist and guest commentator and co-host Ana Navarro, who is a member of the Republican Party, said it was time to call the people who spread information about the conspiracy theory “The Great Replacement on their platforms, including Fox News host Tucker Carlson and Congresswoman Elise Stefanik.

It comes after an 18-year-old white supremacist murdered 10 people at a supermarket in a predominantly black community in Buffalo, New York on Saturday May 14. The killer cited the conspiracy theory in a manifesto he posted online, which states that Democrats are actively trying to reduce white influence by replacing them with immigration and other means. The racist philosophy has been promoted by white supremacists around the world.

“I think it’s time to name names and point fingers,” Navarro said. “Tucker Carlson has mentioned the ‘great replacement’ theory or some version of it more than 400 times on his show since 2016, according to The New York Times.”

In addition to criticizing Carlson, Navarro condemned Stefanik, the third most powerful Republican in the House, for buying Facebook ads last year that pushed basic conspiracy theory ideas. “It’s not just them,” Navarro said. “These are other Fox News hosts. They are other Republican leaders. And they must be called.

Navarro also called out Fox News announcers and accomplices to Republican leaders, donors, staff and voters for “being part of the problem.”

“I’ll tell you what the ‘Great Replacement’ theory should be,” said Ana Navarro. “We should replace all those people who spread hate and profit financially and politically from spreading racism. We should replace them with people who uphold American values.
