‘Time to name names’: Ana Navarro blames Tucker Carlson and GOP for Buffalo shooting
The View’s Ana Navarro delivered a passionate monologue in the wake of a Buffalo, New York, shooting targeting black people that left 10 dead and three injured. “It’s time to name names and point fingers,” she said before listing people she felt are responsible for the tragedy, namely Tucker Carlson.
“If you’re a Republican donor tweeting about how bad you feel about this but donating to people like [New York GOP Rep.] Elise Stefanik, you are part of the problem. If you are a staffer working for them, you are part of the problem,” Navarro said.
“Tucker Carlson mentioned the Great Replacement theory or some version of that more than 400 times on his show since 2016, according to the New York Times. Elise Stefanik bought ads on Facebook, and it’s not just them. It’s other hosts of Fox News. It’s other Republican leaders, and they need to be called out,” she continued.
BUFFALO SHOOTING WAS PREMEDITATED AND SHOOTER VISITED AREA MONTHS AGO: POLICE
She likened the event to a shooting in El Paso, Texas, in 2019, wherein the shooter purposely targeted those appearing to be Mexican. “Now we can’t go to the supermarket?” she said.
Navarro then argued that “we should replace all these people peddling hate and making financial and political gain from spreading racism … with people who hold up American values.”

She further echoed a tweet from Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), that reads, “The House GOP leadership has enabled white nationalism, white supremacy, and anti-semitism. History has taught us that what begins with words ends in far worse. @GOP leaders must renounce and reject these views and those who hold them.”
