As I See It

Great Replacement theory baseless, dangerous



The heinous murders carried out in Buffalo was the work of a white supremacist who killed 10 black people. But some of our political leaders continue to egg on these white nationalists with fake and dangerous claims of a so-called replacement theory. That theory, promoted by the likes of Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson, holds that the U.S. immigration policy is essentially working to replace white people with non-whites, that white people are being systematically replaced by immigrants. Under the racist conspiracy theory known as the Great Replacement, liberals win by diluting the votes of America-loving Republicans. Apparently this racist hatred, which has no basis in reality, has gone from the fringes to the mainstream. According to a recent Associated Press poll, 30% of Americans believe that immigrants are being allowed into the United States to dilute the votes of American citizens. Fox host Tucker Carlson has been the cheerleader of this campaign, airing over 600 segments claiming this Great Replacement theory is real. Not surprisingly, many of the entries in the writings of the man accused of the Buffalo shooting echo Carlson’s sentiments. The Great Replacement theory was rampant in his 150 page manifesto. We must condemn such racism and hatred and this poisonous rhetoric must come to an end. Or else we’re saying it is open season on minorities.

    Mr Shaw, you are so wrong! You are libeling Senator Johnson. The Democrat Party is trying to get more voters by not enforcing the immigration laws. It is obvious to thinking Americans. I have never heard of any “theory” of this, however. How about the facts that “social media” can shut down free speech if it’s something that they don’t like, but if it is something they want out there like the diatribe by the shooter is okay. Even the FBI can’t see it if it is by someone like this but if a conservative person were to do this they would be arrested. Try to think your B S through next time.
