Fox News host Tucker Carlson caused national outrage this week when he openly pushed white supremacist propaganda on his show. Now Americans are demanding his termination from the network.
Carlson has been the face of white supremacy on Fox News for years, and he went to bat for white supremacists again on Thursday night by repeating the white supremacy “replacement” conspiracy theory that Democrats are somehow trying to “replace” the white population of America to stay in power forever, which Carlson linked to immigration.
“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,” carlson said. “But they become hysterical because that’s what’s happening actually. Let’s just say it. That’s true.”
No, it’s not. America is becoming more diverse, but it’s not because Democrats have a nefarious plan to replace white people. The demographics in this country have been changing over decades because ethnic populations that have been here for a long time have continued to grow at a faster pace than the white population. Immigration does not have much to do with that, although it should be pointed out that less white people immigrate to the United States than other ethnic groups. That’s probably because those white people are happier in their own nations, especially white Europeans who have access to universal healthcare, free education, and other perks of society that our own nation lacks.
Carlson then absurdly claimed that his voting rights are being infringed upon even as Republicans across the country move to pass Jim Crow voter suppression laws.
“[T]his is a voting-right question,” Carlson said. “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?”
Here’s the video via YouTube:
Carlson’s vote is not being diluted. Regardless of how large or diverse our population is, every person’s vote counts as one vote. His rant, however, is incredibly racist and is similar to manifestos of mass shooters who targeted people of other races as The Daily Show pointed out.
The Daily Show has spliced together Tucker Carlson with the El Paso and Christchurch shooter manifestos… https://t.co/Msj34KTsBX

Tucker Carlson is a white supremacist, and any company that is still advertising on his show supports that shit.

Tucker Carlson is pushing white supremacy on Fox News again.
Its way past time for there to be a nation wide boycott of all Cable companies until they permanently drop Fox News” Newsmax and One America Network.
The Cable companies knowingly unleashed this evil on the world.

Major Jewish organizations are now calling for Carlson to be fired because his rant is clearly inciting violence against Jews and people of color.
.@TuckerCarlson: “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. https://t.co/FSvgNfR1KO

“It is horrifying that Fox News continues to empower Tucker Carlson and other white nationalist ideologues to broadcast this kind of hateful poison into the homes of tens of millions Americans,” said J Street’s @bayroff.https://t.co/jDLQjonQlz

Carlson’s rant is the exact kind of language spewed at Charlottesville in 2017 when a neo-Nazi murdered a counter-protester and white supremacists roamed the streets carrying torches and chanting “You will not replace us!” It’s the kind of language that incites hate crimes and insurrections. He should not only be fired, Fox News should be shut down. The network is inciting violence and should be held legally responsible for the hate crimes that will inevitably result from Carlson’s propaganda.
