Tucker Carlson Blasted for Promoting Racist ‘Replacement Theory’
Fox News propagandist Tucker Carlson on Thursday promoted another piece of racist rhetoric known as “Replacement Theory”, which is the belief among white nationalists that white Americans are being systematically wiped out by non-white populations that immigrate to the United States.
Carlson whined to Fox News Primetime host Mark Steyn that Democrats are gaining a greater share of new voters than Republicans:
I’m laughing because this is one of about 10 stories that I know you have covered where the government shows preference to people who have shown absolute contempt for our customs, our laws, our system itself and they are being treated better than American citizens. Now, 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’s happening actually. Let’s just say it: That’s true.
And then made up an analogy that has to be seen to be believed:
Look, if this were happening in your house, if you were in 6th grade for example and without telling you your parents adopted a bunch of new siblings, and gave them brand new bikes, and let them stay up later and helped them with their homework, and gave them twice the allowance that they gave you, you would say to your siblings, ‘you know, I think we’re being replaced by kids that our parents love more. And it’d be kinda hard to argue against you because, look at the evidence.
Sixth-graders know better. Carlson is referring to the absolutely nonsensical “evidence” that he fabricated.
So this matters on a whole bunch of levels. But on a basic level, 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. So I don’t understand what we don’t understand cause, I mean, everyone wants to make a racial issue out of it. Oh, you know, the white replacement theory? No, no, no. This is a voting right question. I have less political power because they are importing a brand new electorate. Why should I sit back and take that? The power that I have as an American guaranteed at birth is one man, one vote, and they are diluting it. No, they are not allowed to do it. Why are we putting up with this?
Michael Edison Hayden, an investigative reporter for the Southern Poverty Law Center, an organization that tracks hate groups, blasted Carlson on Twitter.
“What Tucker Carlson says here about whites being replaced by the ‘Third World’ lines up with what the New Zealand terrorist wrote in his 2019 manifesto. Society condemned that document and pushed it off the web. This we feed to millions every night,” Hayden wrote.

On Friday morning, President Jonathan Greenblatt of the Anti-Defamation League, another hate group watchdog, posted a tweet strongly condemning Carlson’s endorsement of white supremacist ideologies – which on numerous occasions he has insisted are liberal myths – and called for Tucker to be fired.
“’Replacement theory’ is a white supremacist tenet that the white race is in danger by a rising tide of non-whites. It is antisemitic, racist and toxic. It has informed the ideology of mass shooters in El Paso, Christchurch and Pittsburgh. Tucker must go,” wrote Greenblatt.
