THE REPLACEMENTS

https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2022/05/the-replacements.php
———————-
Asiatic.? That’s what my Dad called his fellow submariners who went off the res after the war. Asiatic. Shell shock, before PTSD. One night he said he was driving and the whole freeway suddenly became stopped. It was a couple of his buddies from the submarine standing out there with candles in their hands stopping all the cars and asking if the motorists they knew where girl with the wooden nickel was. They went Asiatic. Haven’t heard that term in 50 years. Anyway…..

UPDATES: MUSK FOR THE WIN, AND THE PROGRESSIVE ROOTS OF “REPLACEMENT THEORY”

• The indispensable Phil Magness points out that “replacement theory” was first articulated by the original Progressives 100 years ago, in particular the sociologist E.A Ross in 1901 lecture:

I think she quotes that Supreme Grotesque Grifter himself, Tim Wise:

"We just have to be patient.
“And wait for you to pass into that good night…
“Do you hear it?
“The sound of your empire dying? Your nation, as you knew it, ending, permanently?
“Because I do, and the sound of its demise is beautiful.”

-- Tim Wise

How do you explain Tucker Carlson and Fox news bring up the Replacement Theory over 400 times?

"The absence of coverage of the motive was revealing, given Fox News’s most popular host, Tucker Carlson, has pushed the concept of replacement theory in more than 400 of his shows – and has arguably done more than anyone in the US to popularize the racist conspiracy."

Punch... could you give us a link to an example? The link you gave doesn't actually show how bad the Carlson rhetoric is.

Gregory

Is it worse than the old joke... calling illegal aliens "undocumented Democrats"?

If it wasn't true it would not have been funny.

Paul Emery

It illustrates the fact that it was a major topic on Fox News, particularly Tucker's show.

Just watch this video for lots of examples Gregory

Paul - it's not a 'theory' it's a fact. Here's Tucker's show from a couple of days ago with clips from Dems bragging about the fact. Watch all of it or start at approx 7 min mark for the clips.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-EzgfBMVwFQ
There is abundant evidence on the internet of leftists and Dems happily bragging about the exact thing that they then deny when a conservative exposes it.
This is like the folks calling out the teaching of CRT.
It doesn't happen, but don't you dare be against it being taught.

George Rebane

PaulE 1144am - as ScottO points out, replacement has been advertised/celebrated by Dems for years, and has been intensifying over the last decade. The phenomenon is well documented by looking at the data on the same factors I spelled out and calculated in my above dissertation. I'm surprised that Carlson referenced this invasion only 400 times, since the illegal influx is the most impactful thing going on domestically. Check out the glee with which Bumblebrain recently announced that the country's Anglo share had dropped below 50%. Rapid uninvited cultural changes in a society never turn out well.

Paul Emery


George

Tucker didn't just reference it he promoted it. Just a casual listen shows that. He used it a a scare tactic to arouse opposition and it certainly did. The mass killings in Buffalo are a tragic example.

scenes

Psul...just how many Tucker episodes have you actually watched? An estimate would be sufficient.

George Rebane

PaulE 115pm - You have misunderstood Tucker's commentaries. Nowhere has he "promoted" replacement for the US. All he has done is to continuously point out that our southern border is open and that we are being invaded by illegal aliens about which the federal govt refuses to do anything. Worse than that, the feds deny that we have a border crisis - I cite the idiot Sec Homeland Security Mayorkas. Your lamestream outlets have refused to cover this ongoing national tragedy. If you want to find a cause for frustration, look there because the people know what's going on.

scenes

Just to show where Democrats are coming from, here's a longer Tim Wise quote:

" And I do not mean by that your physical destruction. We don’t play those games. We’re not into the whole “Second Amendment remedies, militia, armed resistance” bullshit that your side fetishizes, cuz, see, we don’t have to be. We don’t need guns.

We just have to be patient.

And wait for your hearts to stop beating.

Do you hear it?

The sound of your empire dying? Your nation, as you knew it, ending, permanently?

Because I do, and the sound of its demise is beautiful.

So know this.

If you thought this election was payback for 2008, remember…

Payback, thy name is…

Temporary."

scenes

A Tim Wise editorial from a few years back that includes the above quote. When you hear Psul bitch about Trump, this is the kind of vitriol that underlies it. These people are not your friends.

Beyond how all the illegal masses might vote, there is also the matter of the billions being spent to "process", and resettle them. Anyone notice the housing shortage? Housing and rents going up? Maybe a few million more illegals might help. Right?
This isn't anger or fear of the illegals themselves per se, although there is a percentage that will murder, rape and steal once they get here. (we certainly need MORE of that, right?) It is anger that our govt has now turned against the existing population and is actively trying to destroy our economy.

Bill Tozer

“Never in U.S. history has an administration simply canceled immigration laws, opened the border, and welcomed in millions of illegal aliens. All arrive illegally, and without audit, or vaccinations and tests in times of pandemic

Cartels now import lethal drugs at will into the United States. We have no idea how many terrorists walk across the border each day.

Almost all the entering millions who break the law are poor, without high school diplomas or English skills, and in dire need of massive federal and state housing, food, education, legal, and health subsidies.

Do the leftists in Washington believe that millions of dependent new residents will look to the Left for decades of support and soon find ways to reciprocate with fealty at the polls? Is that why Democrats brag in unapologetic tribalist fashion about changing the demography of the electorate?”

Ann Coulter: Here Are the Nutcases Who Believe in ‘Replacement’

Of course T/ucker didn't promote or supported "replacements" but what he did do is hammer away on it as a Democratic plan, which was not true, to stir up violent racist opposition. It succeeded in inspiring the murder of 10 innocent citizens in Baltimore. Of that there is no doubt.

Bill Tozer

Paul.

“as a Democratic plan, which was not true, to stir….”

I strongly disagree. The Democrats have been touting the Replacement for years.
I also strongly disagree that Tucker’s purpose was “to stir up racist opposition.”
I also strongly disagree that anything on Fox inspired the murder of 10 in Baltimore and I also disagree to your assertion that “there is no doubt.” There is volumes of doubt when dealing with a very mentality ill 17-18 year old.

I know, it was all Trump’s fault that a young Iranian soldier blew an Ukrainian passenger jet out of the sky.

There is no doubt that Bernie Sander’s rhetoric inspired James Hodgkinson

Hodgkinson, a 66-year-old man, asked a passing congressman—South Carolina’s Jeff Duncan—whether Republicans or Democrats were on the field practicing. Once he received confirmation that the Republican representatives were the ones playing ball, Hodgkinson fired off 60 rounds into the unsuspecting elected officials.

5 shot, including Whip Steve Scalise who is still wheelchair bound. One bullet narrowed missed Rand Paul.

Who are we to blame for inspiring Darrell Brooks Jr. to do the Waukesha Christmas parade attack that killed six and injured 60!! All the blame for inspiring Brooks’s murder spree lays solely at Nikole Hannah-Jones’s feet.

Not only that, but I blame Nikole Hannah-Jones for not only inspiring Darrell Brooks for his rampage through a Christmas Parade, I also blame her for the Buffalo massacre.

Nikole Hannah-Jones was the catalyst for the Waukesha AND Buffalo attacks. Hang her from the highest tree.

Who is T/ucker??? Where were 10 innocent citizens killed???

re: immigrants.

I assume that one big change was the Democrats no longer represent the working class, pretty much a given at this point.

Here's an example of the change in attitude over time.

Oh...I get it now.....Payton S. Gedro = T/ucker! An interesting faith you adhere to Psul...what with the different names for prominent people in the body of your catechism.

And I thought Christianity was confusing.

George Rebane

PaulE 402pm - Only in your universe is all that true Paul, only there. And in you 115pm you did indeed claim that Tucker 'supported' replacement.

Don Bessee

Well that was fast sliding in a replacement. -

re BT 10:19 - And if you do point out the people saying good things about it - "You're RACIST!"
