In yet another stunning example of liberal hypocrisy, The View co-host Sunny Hostin suggested once again during Friday’s program that Latinos and Blacks who vote Republican are doing something wrong after attacking former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley earlier in the week for using a nickname when she herself did the same thing.
“That’s what’s so interesting to me, that there are so many Latinos that vote Republican because they vote against their own self-interest. If you really are interested in these types of issues, then you’re a Democrat,” she said during a discussion among the program hosts about former Donald Trump adviser Jared Kushner’s accusation that Democrats were using illegal immigrants as political “pawns.”
In the same week, Hostin attacked Haley for not going by her Indian name, instead changing it to “pass” as white. Never mind that Haley has talked at length about her Indian background in speeches.
Hostin also does not go by her given Spanish name, Asunción. But why should anyone on the left be able to apply their own opinions to themselves?
Co-hosts on the show defended Haley, who has gone by her middle name, Nikki, since childhood.
“So Nikki Haley’s gone by Nikki since she was a child. It’s documented in high school. I wouldn’t be shocked if somebody, an Indian woman growing up in South Carolina at that time, she actually did to avoid prejudice,” Farah Griffin said later on Tuesday’s episode. “So I just want to be careful about critiquing her for going by a name she has always gone by.”
They also brought up Hostin’s use of a nickname.
But Hostin only replied, Hostin said, “Yes, there are some of us that can be chameleons and decide not to embrace our ethnicities, so that we can pass …”
None of it is anything new for Hostin, who has repeatedly criticized Republicans and suggested that minorities shouldn’t vote for anyone but Democrats.
She turned on co-hosts Ana Navarro and Lindsey Granger in May, saying she “couldn’t understand” how they could say they were Republicans.
“I don’t understand either of you,” Hostin told the women. “I don’t understand Black Republicans and I don’t understand Latino Republicans.” A Black Republican an “oxymoron,” in her view.
Democrats are getting increasingly nervous as Republicans make inroads with minority voters fed up with that party’s progressive policies and the dismal results of their policies, including massive illegal immigration and economic woes brought on by massive spending.
