The Anti-Defamation League called for the firing of Tucker Carlson, and this time it had to do with a racist narrative called the ‘replacement theory.’ Fox defended Carlson and now he’s doubled down on his talking points.
“It was true and therefore worth saying,” he said. “America badly needs a national conversation about it.”
He then took his comments a step further, insisting that “Demographic change is the key to the Democratic party’s political ambitions” and that “Democrats plan to change the population of the country” in order to win elections.
"The reason why Tucker Carlson’s little theory where he thinks he’s unlocking the world is so stupid is because in America all we do is invent new white people," said Wosny Lambre, reacting to Carlson's segment.
"So the idea that white poeple or whiteness can be replaced is stupid because you have to ignore the fact that when the Irish came here, they were not white, we made them white. When the Italians came here, they were not white, we made them white. Why does Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio get to be white now? We made Cubans white," he explained.
"He’s telling on himself and so are other people who spout this conspiracy theory because in their mind they think, ‘Why would we reconsider what our platform is, or what we’re offering? We serve white voters and we’re not going to expand that to serve people of color or anyone that we don't consider white,’” explained Ana Kasparian. "It’s an admission that the Republican party does not care about any other group and has no interest in representing any group."
Kasparian further explains, "for anyone who falls for this nonsense, Tucker Carlson's solution is not Medicare for All, it’s not wealth distribution - his answer is let’s purge this country of anyone who does not identify with us."
"I want people to understand that the only point of Tucker Carlson's show is to sow hatred and division in the country because divide and conquer is an incredibly effective strategy," she concluded.
