This Racist ‘Theory’ Is Now GOP Dogma

Daniel Acker/Bloomberg

The hoods are off, and Republicans are embracing the white supremacist “replacement theory.”

If you’re dismissing this as fear-mongering or click-bait, you probably missed Newt Gingrich, the former Speaker of the House and renowned adulterer, espousing replacement theory rhetoric on Fox News earlier this week while talking to host Maria Baritromo, who always has time to offer a platform to dangerous conspiracy peddling. Speaking about Mexican immigrants coming to America during the pandemic, Gingrich said the “radical left” wants to “get rid of the rest of us” and would “love to drown traditional, classic Americans with as many people as they can who know nothing of American history, nothing of American tradition, nothing of the rule of law.”

He wasn’t talking about Donald Trump, notorious for being historically ignorant and profoundly incurious, but about those of us with darker skin, who are never seen as “traditional” or “classic” or “real Americans.” Gingrich, a craven political opportunist, parroted the talking points associated with “the great replacement” theory, also known as “white genocide,” which stipulates the white race and “Western civilization” are in dire threat of being weakened and ultimately usurped by immigrants of color, Muslims, feminists, and gays.

Quotes describing the disease infecting what passes for intellect in monsters like Gingrich, Trump, et al, run through the article like shit through a goose. Read it and be prepared – if you care not only for the heritage of “small d” democrats’ fight against racism; but, what’s coming down the pike led by a caravan of hypocrites spouting fear-stricken blather in a panic over the latest reporting from the Census Bureau.

    “Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) appeared on The ReidOut Tuesday, where she responded to right-wing figures like Fox News hosts Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham pushing back against the United States accepting Afghan refugees fleeing the Taliban. Carlson has even gone so far as to label the impending resettlement of refugees in the U.S. as an invasion.
    Omar came to the U.S. as a refugee in the ‘90s, after her family fled Somalia and lived in a refugee camp for four years, so her views differ greatly from those of Carlson and Ingraham.”
    “Omar also responded to right-wing pundit and Fox News contributor Charlie Kirk, who claimed that what is happening in Afghanistan right now was planned by President Biden so he could bring refugees to the U.S. for political gain. Kirk specifically mentioned Omar in that diatribe.
    “What’s going on here is Joe Biden wants a couple hundred thousand more Ilhan Omar’s to come to America to change the body politic permanently,” Kirk said.”

    “A manifesto allegedly written and posted by the suspect in a mass shooting at a Buffalo supermarket that killed 10 people laid out specific plans to attack Black people and repeatedly cited the “great replacement” theory, the false idea that a cabal is attempting to replace white Americans with nonwhite people through immigration, interracial marriage and, eventually, violence.”
    The document also claims “critical race theory,” a recent right-wing talking point that has come to generally encompass teaching about race in school, is part of a Jewish plot, and a reason to justify mass killings of Jews.
    “Great replacement” theory has recently received support from traditional power centers of the American right. According to an AP-NORC poll released this week, one in three U.S. adults believes there is an ongoing effort “to replace U.S.-born Americans with immigrants for electoral gains.”
    Fox News’ Tucker Carlson has repeatedly pushed “replacement” rhetoric on his show.

  3. Bonkers says:

    Lara Logan, an ex-CBS News chief foreign affairs correspondent and former Fox Nation host, has been barred from future appearances on right-wing cable news network Newsmax TV following a bizarre, conspiracy theory-laden rant on Wednesday.
    Logan, who claimed she was “dumped by Fox” after she compared Anthony Fauci to a Nazi doctor last year, used an interview with Newsmax TV host Eric Bolling to peddle the racist “great replacement” theory and claims of a global cabal.
