    St. Damien ministered to Native Hawaiians in a leper colony. Now, AOC calls him a 'colonizer

    Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez pointed to a Catholic martyr who gave his life to minister to the least fortunate Hawaiian natives. Probably knowing little or nothing about his life's story, she held up this saint and hero of Hawaiian history as the totem of “white supremacy,” apparently because he was an immigrant.

    That’s the most charitable interpretation of her tirade centered on St. Damien of Molokai, one of two men the people of Hawaii (the least white state in the United States) have chosen to honor with a statue in the U.S. Capitol. As my colleague Becket Adams wrote, "Hawaii is represented in the Capitol by not just Damien, but also by King Kamehameha I, the indigenous ruler who governed the Hawaiian Kingdom in the 1810s."

    The Church survived the Borgia clan.
