She said it to shock Liberal PC types that will freak the fuck out about it, demonstrating to the trump base that Libs are reactionary dickheads... which succeeded too well as she got her show canned.

"Colonizer" is intended as an insult to white people based on race and indicates a moral superiority to that race. It's racist. Calling someone a native isn't an insult, because that's what they are. Like calling a black guy a black guy isn't racist, because that's what he is. It's a description.
 
"Slave" and "Slaver" are also racist for obvious reasons.

Black is based off of a biological characteristics.  Both colonizer and native relate to ancestral origins. If someone, especially a white person, goes to Nigeria, see a lot of activity going on, and says “the natives are restless”, that would be perceived by many to be an insult. 

I would gather that the average person would have greatly preferred to have been a colonizer as opposed to a slave.  Words that mean nearly the same as colonizer, such as colonist and conqueror, are looked upon as positives.

So wait a sec. Do you agree that:
1. "Colonizer" is used as an insult to white people? And
2. That "Colonizer" indicates a moral superiority to white people?

I would say maybe but not necessarily.  Depends on the individual.
