In the midst of a public argument with the Anti-Defamation League, Fox News CEO Lachlan Murdoch said he will not fire popular television host Tucker Carlson.
“A full review of the guest interview shows that Mr. Carlson rejected and rejected the replacement theory,” Murdoch said in a letter to ADL. “As Mr Carlson himself said during the guest interview, ‘White replacement theory? No, no, that’s a voting issue, ”Murdoch continued.
Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO of ADL, urged Murdoch, “As a news organization with responsibility to the public and as a company with responsibility to its shareholders, it is time for you to act.”
“With all due respect, Mr Carlson’s attempt to dismiss this theory first, while in the next breath he advocates it under the guise of a ‘voting issue’ does not give him a free license to invoke a white trope of supremacists. In fact, it’s worse because he’s using a straw man – the right to vote – to sneakily approve of the beliefs of the white supremacists while ironically suggesting that it’s not really white supremacism, ”Greenblatt said.
The ADL’s argument is that Carlson was referring to the “white substitute theory,” or the idea that global elites want to flood Western countries with immigrants because birth rates are falling Epoch times Reports.
But he didn’t do that at all. Here’s exactly what he said.
“Demographic change is the key to the political ambitions of the Democratic Party,” said Carlson on Monday. “Let’s say that again for emphasis, because it is the secret of the whole immigration debate. Demographic change is key to the democratic party’s political ambitions. In order to gain and maintain power, the Democrats plan to transform the country’s population. Their goal is to make you irrelevant. ”
The San Francisco-born Carlson urged that the state of California be democratic now because the “population” had changed.
“If you actually came from there, if you lived in the state of California in 1980, you probably still voted Republicans,” he said. “You haven’t really changed. But as your state swelled with foreign voters, your views became irrelevant. ”
“The power to control your own life disappeared with the arrival of new people who diluted your voice. That was the whole point. It’s not a democracy. It’s cheating, ”he added. “Basically it is a question of voting rights. One person corresponds to one vote. When you change the population, you dilute the political power of the people who live there. Every time they import a new voter, I am disenfranchised as the current voter. ”
He added, “So I don’t understand what we don’t understand because I mean everyone wants to turn it into a racial problem. Oh you know the white replacement theory? No no no. This is a voting issue. I have less political power because they are importing a brand new electorate. Why should I sit back and take this? The power I was guaranteed at birth as an American is one man, one voice, and they dilute it. No, they are not allowed to. Why do we put up with this? “
Carlson’s questions are valid and, in fact, shared by much of the country.
Nationally syndicated radio host and Human events Charlie Kirk devoted his entire radio show on Tuesday to the defense of Carlson.
“Nothing he said is controversial,” said Kirk. “It’s factual and it’s true.”
Kirk asked an interesting question.
“If there were 350,000 Polish and Ukrainian Eastern Europeans on the southern border, would the Democrats want them in our country? Of course not, they reliably vote Republicans. Do you think if 200,000 Venezuelans wanted to come to America, the Democrats would want them in America? Of course not. Democrats have found a specific, reliable group that is more likely to vote democratically than not. ”
As a result, Kirk was under the same false attacks Carlson did.
