Tucker Pushes Racist ‘Great Replacement’ Theory Yet Again, ADL Renews Call for Fox to Fire Him

Jano's grief
The Anti-Defamation League reiterates its call for Fox News to fire Tucker Carlson after the station's star went all-in on prime-time this week to advocate the racist "Great Replacement" theory.
The last time Carlson adopted the conspiracy theory, his boss Lachlan Murdoch dismissed the outrage, claiming the Fox star was only talking about voting rights. But now, according to the ADL, Carlson is taking up "open white nationalist topics of conversation".
The Fox News host has repeatedly feared that Democrats are allegedly bringing in dark-skinned immigrants with the express purpose of "replacing" the American (read: white) electorate. On Wednesday evening, he said that the Biden government was deliberately trying to immigrate to "change the country's racial mix".
"Politically, this policy is called 'the great replacement,' the replacement of old Americans with more obedient people from distant lands," exclaimed Carlson. "They brag about it all the time, but if you dare to say it happens, they will yell at you with maximum hysteria."
The so-called "Great Replacement" theory is a white-supremacist belief in a conspiracy between liberals and wealthy elites to replace the white population of the predominantly white countries demographically and culturally with immigrants of non-European descent. In recent years the theory has served as inspiration for mass racial murders in El Paso, Pittsburgh and Christchurch, New Zealand.
Despite its overtly racist and anti-Semitic roots, the conspiracy theory - in large part thanks to Carlson's embrace - has become more acceptable and normalized within the Republican Party, with numerous GOP lawmakers and officials citing it openly.
On Thursday, in response to Carlson's newest segment, ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt renewed his call on Fox News to sack its biggest star.
"It cannot be overstated enough," Greenblatt said in a statement to The Daily Beast. "For Tucker Carlson, host of one of the country's most watched newscasts, it is a repulsive and dangerous abuse of his platform to use his platform as a megaphone to promote the toxic, anti-Semitic and xenophobic 'Big Substitute Theory.' ' ”
Greenblatt added, "If somehow it wasn't clear enough to the executives at Fox News that Carlson was openly adopting white nationalist topics of conversation, skip last night's episode. We repeat our appeal to Fox News and Lachlan Murdoch: Tucker Carlson has to go. "
After Carlson first began advocating the "replacement" theory in the air last April, claiming that the Democrats wanted to replace "the current voters" with "more obedient third world voters," he dismissed Fox Corp. CEO Lachlan Murdoch, The ADL's Outrage.
In response to a letter Greenblatt sent to Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott demanding that Carlson be resigned for invoking a "classic white supremacist trope", Murdoch insisted - a long-time advocate from Carlsons - that the Fox host only spoke about voting rights.
"However, we respectfully disagree with the April 8 section of Tucker Carlson Tonight," Murdoch wrote in a letter to the ADL. “A full review of the guest interview shows that Mr. Carlson condemned and rejected the replacement theory. As Mr. Carlson himself said during the guest interview, “White substitution theory? No, no, that is a question of voting rights. ‘"
Five months later, after getting closer to it on recent broadcasts, Carlson finally crossed the border and seemingly contradicted Murdoch's defense of his star.
The ADL, meanwhile, was not the only organization to revisit its calls for Fox to remove Carlson.
"By openly embracing the 'great substitute' theory of white supremacy quoted by numerous mass murderers in their manifestos, Tucker Carlson has once again proven that his program poses a serious threat to our society," said Edward Ahmed Mitchell, national deputy director of the American-Islamic Relations Council. "Fox News should fire Mr. Carlson and any other host who promotes these racist, dangerous conspiracy theories."
Fox News did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the story.
