  • The Great Replacement Theory

    Tucker has, wrongly in my view, been accused of supporting the racist aspect of this theory. It doesn't seem to have hurt his rating especially with the younger demographic.

    Tucker Carlson Dominates Young Viewer Demographic Ratings, Despite Best Efforts by Democrats to Stop Him

    BY RUSTY WEISS

    Fox News host Tucker Carlson continues to dominate in the ratings, but perhaps surprisingly, the conservative host is drawing the most young viewers in all of cable news.

    Despite the best efforts of Democrats and the liberal media to slow the tide, Carlson’s primetime show is leading the way in drawing viewers in the key 25-54 year old demographic.

    The numbers, according to Adweek, show Carlson’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight” bringing in 508,000 viewers in the coveted demo, easily topping network colleague Laura Ingraham, whose show “The Ingraham Angle” hit 387,000.

    Overall, the conservative anchor’s show saw 3.16 million viewers, second only to “The Five” with 3.30 million.

    There is a difference between the toxic version and FWICT Carlson Tucker was saying. In fact, the entire idea was embraced by both sides.

    I posted this in another thread a few hours ago, and it's easier just C&Ping here

    Replacement Theory is something that both sides have been discussing for years now. In fact, it has been recommended by the U.N. as a possible "solution to declining and aging populations."

    What gave it a sinister twist was when some started claiming that some shadowy group, usually the Jews, were the ones pushing it and actually bankrolling it.

    But that has never been what Republicans were saying. Instead, they are saying that it has been Democrat Party policy in order to replace the voters they have been losing from the working class. IOW, America’s shifting demographics are the intended outcome of the Democratic Party’s immigration policies.

    And where have they gotten such a view? Why from the left itself.

    For instance, in 2018 a memo co-authored by former Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri surfaced declaring that the Democrats needs to protect illegal immigrants brought here by DACA in order to ensure those additional votes because it is a "critical component of the Democratic Party’s future electoral success."

    The memo, put out by the Center for American Progress (CAP) Action Fund declared:

    If Democrats don’t try to do everything in their power to defend Dreamers, that will jeopardize Democrats’ electoral chances in 2018 and beyond.


    And let us not overlook how just this past summer, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) had no problem embracing Replacement Theory proclaiming

    "The demographics of America are not on the side of the Republican Party. The new voters in this country are moving away from them, away from Donald Trump, away from their party creed that they preach."
    .

    Even old Joe declared back in 2015 (back when he still didn't have trouble confusing his wife for his sister and vice versa) that, starting in 2017 "fewer than 50% of the people in America . . . will be white European stock." During his Zoom conference call made with black leaders soon after being sworn in, he reiterated it, although he said it was dooming America.

    The Atlantic, which has become the voice of "mainstream liberal" Democrats since Steve Jobs widow bought it, did a story a couple years ago about how many on their fellow travelers have been saying for years that demographic change would deliver a permanent electoral majority to Democrats

    In 2002, the political scientist Ruy Teixeira and the journalist John Judis published a book, The Emerging Democratic Majority, which argued that demographic changes—the browning of America, along with the movement of more women, professionals, and young people into the Democratic fold—would soon usher in a “new progressive era” that would relegate Republicans to permanent minority political status. The book argued, somewhat triumphally, that the new emerging majority was inexorable and inevitable. After Barack Obama’s reelection, in 2012, Teixeira doubled down on the argument in The Atlantic, writing, “The Democratic majority could be here to stay.”


    I'll note that the elections in 2014 and 2016 cooled Teixeira giddiness considerably.

    Similarly, in 2016 civil rights attorney Steve Phillips made the same argument in his best-seller Brown Is the New White.

    So, given that Democrats expect the growing nonwhite population of America to support them, how can anyone argue that their virtually open borders immigration policies aren't designed to secure an electoral majority? That this is indeed the case was made clear during the Democratic primary debate held in October of 2019, where every single Democrat running -- including the duffer -- promised to "provide [free] coverage for undocumented immigrants."

    Of course the delicious irony has been that as the Democrats run full speed into Socialism crippling the economy, are soft on crime and continue to try to cram divisive social views down everyone's throat while stifling all dissent, is causing more and more blacks, Asians and especially Hispanics to start voting GOP lever in droves as Democrats tilt ever-more left on crime, the economy and divisive social issues

      Personally that's my concern. I could care less about race. It's proven that immigrants tend to vote democratic, especially first and second generation. And now that we know the Dems are intent on allowing illegals to vote supports, at least in part, the theory the Dems want open borders for that reason.

                        If Republicans didn't want their theory to be confused with the racist one, they probably should have named it something else.

                            According to the ADL

                            https://www.adl.org/resources/backgr...t-an-explainer


                            Once largely relegated to white supremacist rhetoric, “The Great Replacement” has made its way into mainstream consciousness in the past several years. From the chants of “Jews Will Not Replace Us” on the University of Virginia campus to then-U.S. Rep. Steve King’s tweeted protest, “We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies,” to Fox News’ Tucker Carlson’s complaints that the Democratic party is attempting to “replace the current electorate” with “third-world voters,” the racist conspiracy theory has well and truly arrived.

                            The following provides an introduction to “The Great Replacement:” Where it began, how it feeds into white supremacist grievances and which “mainstream” personalities have used it to score points and signal (not so subtly) their nativist point of view.

                            Origin Story
                            • “The Great Replacement” theory has its roots in early 20th century French nationalism and books by French nationalist and author Maurice Barres. However, it was French writer and critic Renaud Camus who popularized the phrase for today’s audiences when he published an essay titled "Le Grand Remplacement," or "the great replacement," in 2011. Camus himself alluded to the “great replacement theory” in his earlier works and was apparently influenced by Jean Raspail’s racist novel, The Camp of the Saints.
                            • Camus believes that native white Europeans are being replaced in their countries by non-white immigrants from Africa and the Middle East, and the end result will be the extinction of the white race.
                            • Camus focused on Muslim immigration to Europe and the theory that Muslims and other non-white populations had a much higher birth rate than whites. His initial concept did not focus on Jews and was not antisemitic.
                            • The “great replacement” philosophy was quickly adopted and promoted by the white supremacist movement, as it fit into their conspiracy theory about the impending destruction of the white race, also know as “white genocide.” It is also a strong echo of the white supremacist rallying cry, “the 14 words:” “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children.”
                            • Since many white supremacists, particularly those in the United States, blame Jews for non-white immigration to the U.S. the replacement theory is now associated with antisemitism.
                            • The night before the August 2017 the Unite the Right rally, white supremacists, marching across the University of Virginia campus, shouted, “Jews will not replace us,” and “You will not replace us,” clear references to Camus’ theory.

                            Use By Individual Extremists
                            • In October 2018, white supremacist Robert Bowers killed 11 people at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, PA, after writing a Gab post blaming Jews for bringing non-white immigrants and refugees to the U.S.
                            • In March 2019, white supremacist Brenton Tarrant livestreamed himself killing 51 people at two mosques in New Zealand. Tarrant also released a manifesto online called “The Great Replacement,” an homage to Camus’ work.
                            • In April 2019, white supremacist John Earnest killed one and injured three at a synagogue in Poway, CA. In a letter he released online, Earnest claimed that Jews were responsible for the genocide of “white Europeans,” and cited the influence of Bowers and Tarrant.
                            • In August 2019, white supremacist Patrick Crusius opened fire at a Walmart in El Paso, TX, killing 23 people and wounding almost two dozen. In a manifesto, Crusius talked about a “Hispanic invasion” and made reference to the great replacement.
                            • In May 2022, white supremacist Payton Gendron allegedly murdered 10 people and wounded three more at a supermarket in Buffalo, NY. The shooter, who drove 200 miles to target a Black community, repeatedly cited and promoted the Great Replacement in his online writings, and as motivation for his rampage. In December 2021, he posted: “The Great Replacement theory is real, at the current rate whites will be the minority. This is white genocide.”

                            Use By Politicians
                            • In April 2019, Heinz-Christian Strache, campaigning for the Freedom Party of Austria ahead of the 2019 European Parliament election, endorsed the “great replacement” theory.
                            • The Identitarian movement, a white nationalist movement in Europe, has promoted the “great replacement” theory. Martin Sellner, the head of Generation Identitaire in Austria, is a particularly vocal promoter.
                            • Marine Le Pen, a far-right French politician, also promoted the idea of the “great replacement.”
                            • In March 2017, then-GOP Congressman (IA) Steve King tweeted his support for Geert Wilders a well-known anti-immigration activist from Europe. “Wilders understands that culture and demographics are our destiny,” the Congressman wrote. “We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies.” The tweet, which won praise from white supremacists, was a clear reference to replacement theory. In August 2018, King gave an interview to a far-right magazine in Austria, in which he promoted the “great replacement” theory.
                            • In an interview on Fox News Justice with Judge Jeanine in July 2020, GOP Congressman Matt Gaetz claimed that an "attempted cultural genocide" was occurring in the US and that the left wanted to "replace America."

                            Use by Media/Tech Personalities
                            • In July 2017, Lauren Southern, a Canadian far-right activist, released a video titled, “The Great Replacement,” promoting Camus’ themes. That summer, Southern was involved in “Defend Europe,” a project lead by European white nationalists to block the arrival of boats carrying African immigrants. Southern’s video further popularized Camus’ theory.
                            • In October 2018, on Fox News' The Ingraham Angle, host Laura Ingraham said, "your views on immigration will have zero impact and zero influence on a House dominated by Democrats who want to replace you, the American voters, with newly amnestied citizens and an ever increasing number of chain migrants."
                            • In October 2019, Jeanine Pirro was discussing Democrats' hatred of Trump on Fox Nation's The Todd Starnes Show. She declared, "Think about it. It is a plot to remake America, to replace American citizens with illegals that will vote for the Democrats."
                            • On April 8, 2021, on Tucker Carlson Tonight, the host explicitly promoted the ‘great replacement” theory. Carlson discussed “Third World” immigrants coming to the US who affiliate with the Democratic Party. He asserted, “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."
                            • On April 11, 2021, Andrew Torba, the founder of Gab, posted on his own platform: “Now today the ADL is trying to cancel Tucker Carlson for daring to speak the truth about the reality of demographic replacement that is absolutely and unequivocally going on in The West. These are not ‘hateful’ statements, they objective facts that can no longer be ignored.”
                            "It ain't necessarily so
                            The things that you're liable

                            It ain't necessarily so
