TeeVee Dinner heir, vanity press owner, and notable Black Studies scholar Tucker Carlson stepped in it the other night and tracked it through the house of Rupert:
Tucker Carlson Endorses White Supremacist Theory by Name
When Nazis marched in Charlottesville in 2017, they chanted “You will not replace us!” and, somewhat more clarifying, “Jews will not replace us!” The terrorist who gunned down 51 people in Christchurch, New Zealand, used this slogan (“The Great Replacement”) in his manifesto. Last night, Tucker Carlson appeared on a prime-time Fox News show to defend this theory, not only in substance but also by name.
“Replacement theory” imagines that an elite cabal, frequently described as Jewish, is plotting to “replace” the native white population with non-white immigrants, who will pollute and destroy the white Christian culture.
And in case you think that Jonathan Chait is overstating the case, here are Carlson’s exact words:
“It’s a voting-rights question. In a democracy, one person equals one vote. If you change the population, you dilute the political power of the people who live there. So every time they import a new voter, I become disenfranchised as a current voter.”
Read it carefully: he’s not whinging against illegal immigration, he’s whinging against ALL immigration; he sees it as dilution of (White Christian Male) his privilege to control the country.
“I know that the left and all the little gatekeepers on Twitter become literally hysterical if you use the term “replacement,” if you suggest that the Democratic Party is trying to replace the current electorate — the voters now casting ballots — with new people, more obedient voters from the Third World. But they become hysterical because that’s what happening, actually. Let’s just say it. That’s true.”
I do not know for a fact that Tucker Carlson is a racist, but his words sure are, and frankly, avowed racists see him as one of them.
