Fox News’ white-men’s rights activist Tucker Carlson has won himself plaudits from white supremacists and others on the racist right for not-so-subtly sneaking their ideas and rhetoric into his nightly monologues.
Former Klan leader David Duke is a fan, as is freelance conspiracy monger Jack Posobiec. Andrew Anglin of the Daily Stormer once called Tucker “literally our greatest ally” and described his nightly white power hour as “basically ‘Daily Stormer: The Show.”
Last week Tucker presented an only slightly watered-down version of the far right “great replacement” theory — also known as “white genocide.” According to the theory, evil globalists (a.k.a. Jews) are working to increase the population of people of color in mostly white countries, thus “replacing” whites as voters, citizens and baby-producers. This is what Nazis in Charlottesville were referring to when they chanted “Jews will not replace us.”
Here’s a handy compilation of some of what Tucker has said on the subject.
In the wake of his latest comments about how the Democrats are allegedly trying to “change the population of the country,” he’s garnered an enthusiastic endorsement from VDare, a long-running white nationalist website obsessed with the alleged evils of non-white immigration. VDare declared Tucker’s “great replacement” monologue to be a historic “Overton Window-Smashing Broadside.” In another post, they wrote:
This segment was one of the best things Fox News has ever aired and was filled with ideas and talking points VDARE pioneered many years ago. You should watch the whole thing.
So big congratulations, I guess, to Tucker. Your people have found you.
