‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ host says the left is obsessed with ‘demographic replacement.’
He also said: “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… If you change the population, you dilute the political power of the people who live there.”
The “woke” world exploded with its usual accusations of “you’re raaccisst” and demanding his firing.
Former George W. Bush aide Michael Gerson wrote in the Washington Post that Carlson is a “professional troll” and his comments are “the euphemistic expression of white supremacist replacement doctrine.”
“This is what modern, poll-tested, shrink-wrapped, mass-marketed racism looks like,” he says. “Carlson is providing his audience with sophisticated rationales for their worst, most prejudicial instincts. And the brilliance of Carlson’s business model is to reinterpret moral criticism of his bigotry as an attack by elites on his viewers.”
He even says that Carlson’s commentary is “a pure, accurate depiction of Trumpism,” and defines Trumpism as “an argument that Western society, and American society in particular, is being infected by dirty outsiders who are destroying the country’s very nature.”
Do you think that’s what he is or reflects? Or is this another example of the old boys in the Establishment Republican party showing how out of touch they are with regular Americans by attempting to demonstrate how woke they are to young leftists and wealthy liberal elites?
