Tucker Carlson endorsed replacement theory on Sept. 23:
What Joe Biden is doing now will change this country forever….An unrelenting stream of immigration. But why? Well, Joe Biden just said it, to change the racial mix of the country. That’s the reason, to reduce the political power of people whose ancestors lived here, and dramatically increase the proportion of Americans newly-arrived from the third world….
In political terms, this policy is called “the great replacement,” the replacement of legacy Americans with more obedient people from far-away countries. They brag about it all the time, but if you dare to say it’s happening they will scream at you with maximum hysteria.
Salon reports on Gaetz:
In 2019, the theory inspired a mass shooting in El Paso, as well as the Christchurch mosque shootings in New Zealand that same year, Insider noted. During the “Unite the Right Rally” in 2017, hundreds of white supremacist protesters gathered in Charlottsville, Virgnia chanting slogans like “You will not replace us” and “Jews will not replace us,” alluding to fears around America’s changing ethnic landscape.
On Saturday, Gaetz appeared to formally back this theory, tweeting that Carlson “is CORRECT about Replacement Theory as he explains what is happening to America.”
Gaetz also added that the ADL – a Jewish non-governmental organization dedicated to combating anti-Semitism and led by Jonathan Greenblatt, a former Obama administration official – is a “a racist organization.”
