Less than two weeks after 22 people were killed in El Paso by an accused shooter who told officials he targeted Mexicans and apparently posted a racist manifesto complaining about a “Hispanic invasion,” Fox Nation host Todd Starnes likened migrants to Nazis while claiming America has been invaded by a “rampaging horde of illegal aliens.”
During Wednesday’s broadcast of Fox Nation’s Starnes Country, first spotted by Media Matters, the conservative pundit groused that The New York Times had recently observed that the El Paso suspect had echoed the same incendiary rhetoric as right-wing media, including Fox News. He then went on to proudly note that he’s been spewing the “invasion” commentary for years.
“I do believe that that we have been invaded by a horde,” Starnes exclaimed. “A rampaging horde of illegal aliens. This has been a slow-moving invasion.”
