Tucker Carlson doubled down on his comments on demographic replacement of voters in the United States by the Democratic Party, mocking aggrieved Twitter activists.
Last week, speaking on “Fox News Primetime” with Mark Stein, Tucker Carlson had brought up the issue of demographic change in America, suggesting that the Democratic Party was bringing in immigrants for political purposes. “If you change the population, you dilute the political power of the people who live there,” Tucker said. “White replacement theory? No, no, this is a voting rights question.”
Following the segment on Thursday, “the usual chorus of hyper-aggressive liars,” such as the ADL, Media Matters, and left-wing commentators on Twitter, came out and claimed that Tucker was perpetuating “white supremacist” ideas. “Mr. Carlson’s attempt to at first dismiss this theory, while in the very next breath endorsing it under cover of ‘a voting rights question,’ does not give him free license to invoke a white supremacist trope,” said the ADL’s Jonathan Greenblatt in a letter to Fox News, demanding he be fired.
Instead of apologizing, Tucker then doubled down on his comments on demographic replacement on his show “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Monday, noting that “all those little gatekeepers on Twitter did become hysterical” about his comments as predicted. “They spent the last four days jumping up and down, furiously trying to pull this show off the air,” he said. “Once again they will fail, but it is amusing to see them keep at it. They get so enraged – it’s a riot!”
Tucker noted that “normal people” don’t respond this way if you think something is wrong. Rather than wishing to correct people, the point is to prevent unauthorized conversations from starting in the first place,” he said. “Demographic change is the key to the Democratic Party’s political ambitions,” Tucker argued:
In order to win and maintain power, Democrats plan to change the population of the country. They’re no longer trying to win you over with their program. They’re obviously not trying to improve your life. They don’t even really care about your vote any more. Their goal is to make you irrelevant. That is provably true. And because it’s true, it drives them absolutely crazy when you say it out loud! Read more…
