The Anti-Defamation League demanded Friday that right-wing Fox News personality Tucker Carlson be fired after he launched a white supremacist conspiracy attack on immigrants, according to Huffington Post.
Carlson ranted on “Fox News Primetime” on Thursday that Democrats are trying to “replace the current electorate” with “more obedient voters from the Third World.”
The complaint clearly echoed the white supremacist “great replacement” conspiracy theory that an elite cabal, including Jews, are recruiting non-white immigrants to erase white domination and white Christian culture. The belief has fueled racist mass shootings in the U.S. Neo-Nazi marchers in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August 2017 were referring to the theory when they chanted, “Jews will not replace us,” the article continues.
“I have less political power because they are importing a brand-new electorate,” Carlson fumed to guest host Mark Steyn, a conservative author, on the Fox News program. “Why should I sit back and take that?”
Huffington Post reports that ADL National Director Jonathan Greenblatt blasted Carlson for pushing an anti-Semitic and racist tenet that has triggered mass shootings against Hispanics, Muslims and Jews.
″‘Replacement theory’ is a white supremacist tenet that the white race” is threatened by a “rising tide of non-whites,” Greenblatt noted in a tweet. “It is antisemitic, racist and toxic. It has informed the ideology of mass shooters in El Paso, Christchurch and Pittsburgh,” he added. “Tucker must go.”
“The Daily Show” chillingly called Carlson a “mass shooter copy cat” Friday after he repeated the same sentiments written by the mass killers in El Paso and in Christchurch, New Zealand. The program presented disturbing side-by-side diatribes. (Check it out in the video above.)
The ADL also released a letter to Fox News, signed by Greenblatt, ticking off other anti-Semitic attacks from Carlson and slamming his “full-on embrace of the white supremacy replacement theory.” His commentary was “not just a dog whistle to racists — it was a bullhorn,” the letter noted.
