Tucker Carlson gets two pasty white thumbs up from white nationalist site VDare for his endorsement of the “great replacement” conspiracy theory

You answered your own question, buddy boy

Fox News’ white-men’s rights activist Tucker Carlson has won himself plaudits from white supremacists and others on the racist right for not-so-subtly sneaking their ideas and rhetoric into his nightly monologues.

Former Klan leader David Duke is a fan, as is freelance conspiracy monger Jack Posobiec. Andrew Anglin of the Daily Stormer once called Tucker “literally our greatest ally” and described his nightly white power hour as “basically ‘Daily Stormer: The Show.”

Last week Tucker presented an only slightly watered-down version of the far right “great replacement” theory — also known as “white genocide.” According to the theory, evil globalists (a.k.a. Jews) are working to increase the population of people of color in mostly white countries, thus “replacing” whites as voters, citizens and baby-producers. This is what Nazis in Charlottesville were referring to when they chanted “Jews will not replace us.”

Here’s a handy compilation of some of what Tucker has said on the subject.

In the wake of his latest comments about how the Democrats are allegedly trying to “change the population of the country,” he’s garnered an enthusiastic endorsement from VDare, a long-running white nationalist website obsessed with the alleged evils of non-white immigration. VDare declared Tucker’s “great replacement” monologue to be a historic “Overton Window-Smashing Broadside.” In another post, they wrote:

This segment was one of the best things Fox News has ever aired and was filled with ideas and talking points VDARE pioneered many years ago. You should watch the whole thing.

So big congratulations, I guess, to Tucker. Your people have found you.

To be fair to Tucker, he was hardly passive while waiting for his rescuers. No, he was signaling them consistently and enthusiastically with metaphorical bonfires and figurative messages on the beach spelled out with seaweed.

But Tucker is a reasonably smart guy: he knows that his rescuers could turn out to be his captors. Let’s see how he handles these white knights.

Tucker is racist.
Water is wet, sun rises in east, sky is blue.

Can we just replace a certain percentage of the white people?

A while ago I read an article about the man who coined the “great replacement” phrase; this isn’t the same article (I couldn’t find it again, ugh internet) but it has the same points, overall:

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/09/20/world/europe/renaud-camus-great-replacement.html

I particularly liked hated this bit:

While decrying the killings, Mr. Camus said he had no regrets about coming up with the term.

“The great replacement has become a household word,” he said. “I take responsibility for it. I believe in its relevance.”

Among the many other scary/disturbing quotes in the article, this one stuck out for me as well (emphasis mine):

Isolated in his castle, Mr. Camus grew even more removed from the actual France he purported to describe — one filled, he believes, with people of Arab and African descent burning with hatred for France and plotting its conquest. In fact, he acknowledged that his understanding of such people was based mainly on Twitter and Facebook. He said he almost never read newspapers or watched television.

“Distance is very, very necessary for observation,” he said.

Sounds like incels. The far-right venn diagram of groups-to-hate overlaps so much, it’s basically a circle.

I’m trying to remember which one of my college professors said that the key to understanding something is to avoid learning anything about it at all costs… oh wait, none of them.

Maybe she is experiencing nothing more than a problematic internet service provider? Here’s to hoping.

epitome of incomrepehensibility

@Bookworm in hijab –

I read Albert Camus at first and was sorely confused! Long day. (And then the article went and specified not just that Renaud wasn’t related to Albert, but also that another Camus wasn’t related to Renaud either.)

But in all seriousness, if this guy is an influence on American racists, I wonder how much he is on the far right here in Quebec, where there’s less of a language barrier??

At some point, it’s only morbid curiosity wondering who influenced whom – they’re just a pile of fill-in-the-blanks bigotry.

Sure, if people like Anglin and Not-THAT-Camus got into an argument about who’s in charge of all the supposed white-genociding, “The Jews” or “The Muslims,” I’d be down for a WHTM-style mockery of the incident. But then again, neither kind of BS should be a thing anymore. Or ever.

(And maybe in my hypothetical scenario, they’d just decide “both, AND with weather-controlling lasers” a la Marjorie Taylor Greene.) :/

Found this on Facebook. Dunno how to embed and all that, so here it is in all its glory:

“Robert Jordan Level Wall of Text Ahoy!!!
OK, so this whole “Tucker: This is why America is great” video clip has been bouncing around in the news and all:

Since Tucker Carlson is my favoritiest Fox talk show host, I thought I’d do a “review”, I.E. a blow by blow of me responding with sarcasm to notable comments that catch my interest. Disclaimer: Zero research was put into this, this was solely off the top of my head.

TC: “Good evening and welcome to blah blah blah…”

Heath Ledger Joker: “And. Here. We. Go.”

TC: “There is a huge amount going on right now.”

Me: “Oh really?”

TC: “So many things seem so completely screwed up right now.”
Me: “See above.”

TC: “Two things about American make it great: The country and its people.”

Me: “You know something buddy? We are at just over 40 seconds into this and that’s probably the longest I’ve been able to watch you without being disgusted by your smug attitude. So props for that I guess.”

TC: “This is a truly beautiful place. If you’re absorbed in your phone all day it’s easy to forget that, but look around… blah blah blah.. and you’ve got what we have… blah blah blah… so gorgeous… blah blah blah…you’ll feel things you inherited from your ancestors… blah blah blah…”

Me: “I feel vaguely like the phone comment was meant to be a veiled insult, so maybe back on familiar ground with the Tucker I know and love? Anywho… America is bestest because our ancestors conquered some really nice land? I suppose this would mean a lot more coming from someone NOT affiliated with the party that would like to neuter the EPA.”

TC: “Americans are still the best people, misguided as we sometimes are.”

Me: “Oh yes, there’s that smug arrogance.”

TC: “Even now most Americans know they’re not really in charge of the universe.”

Me: “With the possible exception of a certain someone in the White House I suppose?”

TC: “This is a profoundly nice country… blah blah blah… Americans are kind to children, to pets, to strangers. We give more money to charity than any other place… blah blah blah… We tip our waiters more.”

Me: “Profoundly nice country is a title generally not associated with those that tear gas their own population, and I wonder if that more money to charity and tipping thing is proportional to overall income or just because we have more money than anyone else? Oh well, I’m not going to look that up because it is just minor nitpicking at this point.”

TC: “There’s no country on Earth you’d rather be lost in. SOMEONE will help you.”

Me: “I was going to say this must be a huge relief to minorities, the poor, and homeless, but I get the feeling this is a coupon where some exclusions apply…”

TC: “In America we don’t eat dogs. We rescue them.”

Me: “Somewhere in India there is some talk show host making this argument about Indians and cows…”

TC: “It’s a sweet country. In some ways it’s getting better. The music is definitely improving. So is the food.”

Me: “Well, I was going to say something about sweet countries in which the populace doesn’t care enough about each other to wear a mask or stay home, but I was kind of derailed with what seems to be an admission that Tucker Carlson likes modern pop music. It’s cool Tucker, Meg Myers “Any Way You Wanna Love” is a guilty pleasure for me too.”

TC: “We still make things. And a lot of them are pretty good… blah blah blah… They [Americans] prefer incremental improvement. That’s why we’ve only had one revolution.”

Me: “Seems I recall that was over displeasure with the government. Fortunately your preferred administration specializes in pleasing the populace.”

TC: “That’s why we fought off the metric system all these years, and thank heaven we have.”

Me: “Right, a more logical system of measurement used by scientists the world over was an an existential threat and we’re lucky that Americans everywhere decided they are too dumb to learn it.”

TC: *Starts raving about Christmas, how it is the bestest holiday ever and nobody else celebrates it or has any celebration that can compare to a commercialized marketing scheme involving an increasingly vague relationship with Christianity.*

Me: “Look at the shiny thing people!!!”

TC: “…The happiest time of the year and therefore the most American.”

Me: “Really? I thought it was widely becoming the most stressful holiday. Besides, didn’t the US score pretty badly on a general happiness survey a few years back? Eh, minor details again.”

TC: “America is a happy country.”

ME: “Delivered in quite the cheerful tone there… But hell, I guess NeoNazis plotting to kidnap senators and civil unrest prove him right.”

TC: “Our happiness is fundamental.”

Me: “As depicted in our increasingly polarized political climate…”

In all seriousness here though, it is easy to make fun of Tucker’s uh, “argument”. It basically amounts to what I said in reference to him talking about Christmas: Don’t think, just focus on the shiny thing!!! Beautiful land!!! Happy people!!! Christmas!!!
Now for my attempt to come up with things that make America great. Now, please keep in mind I am a lone jackass writing this out off the top of my head, not a major television talk show host with numerous underlings to help write and fact check things over a matter of hours, days, or even weeks. I might not measure up to his errr… “stellar” example.
Let’s toss our struggling educational system right off. We don’t need mountains of different studies showing Americans are falling behind the rest of the world, we can look out the window. Maybe we should put more effort or funding into a system that is literally preparing our children for life as American citizens? But I digress…

Soooooo…

1) Standard of living. On average, thanks to the money the 1% has yet to acquire, most Americans enjoy a pretty decent living style compared to probably 90+% of the world.

2) Technology. We may be falling behind in a lot of ways, like nuclear power (China be advancing while we use what amounts to glorified 60s tech), but all in all we have some of the most ridiculous pieces of technology in the world. We spent bazillions of dollars setting up satellites and cellphone towers so we can argue over whether or not six year old’s should be allowed to watch Minecraft videos until their eyes fall out for crying out loud

3) Military might. Hey, if you enjoy “My daddy can beat up your daddy” arguments, we got one big daddy to boast about. We got nukes, drones, and those blockbuster movie Navy SEALs coming out our ears.

4) The Vote. While it has started to be a fad where everyone plays at being a Democratic country where everyone gets a say, and in many respects our system is quite flawed (understatement of the year), nevertheless America was founded on the idea of representation. Not a lot of countries can make that claim, even if it was with the caveat of white men only for most of America’s lifespan.

I believe we have had a record number of voters this year. Even if we believe certain Twitter comments about a particular proportion of said votes, that still says a lot about the American people. It says that, although many don’t care about helping to stop Covid from killing more fellow Americans, they did care enough to cast a vote about the future of the country. We have the chance to give our input, and not every citizen in every country can say that either. A lot of people from Revolutionary War heroes to much more recent activists died to give every citizen that right, regardless of color, creed, gender, etc, etc.

That’s a hell of a legacy.

I’m sure there are more things, perhaps quite obvious ones, but personally I feel my list is a lot better than “Beautiful land, nice people, and OMG Christmas””

@ .45, oh my God, I thought your transcript was meant to be a sarcastic mockery of what he actually said…and then I watched the video. “If you pay too much attention to what’s happening, you can easily conclude that America is a rotten country.”

If you pay too much attention to what’s happening.

Let me repeat that :

IF YOU PAY TOO MUCH ATTENTION TO WHAT’S HAPPENING.

What. The. Fuck. FWIW, I don’t think America (the USA, dude, duh…not that he cares) is a “rotten country”, but way to hide from reality, Tucker.

@ Epitome of Incomprehensibility,

At some point, it’s only morbid curiosity wondering who influenced whom – they’re just a pile of fill-in-the-blanks bigotry.

I’m really grateful to David Futrelle for doing such a (surely nasty and painful, but) great job of documenting the truth of that statement. I’ve never met an anti-Semite who wasn’t also an Islamophobe, and a racist; sexism and homophobia seem to also go along with it, as does nationalism…as you say, it’s just fill-in-the-blanks for which type of bigotry the haters are overtly displaying at any given moment.

Yeah. The things that make us a pretty great country, compared, say, to Guatemala, have nothing to do with what Carlson was talking about. In particular, the bit about being lost really annoyed me. Yeah, someone will help you in the US if you get lost. Some one in India or China or England or even Guatemala, will help you too. Or you might get mugged in any of those places, including the US. But that’s just because human. There are humans everywhere. And contrary to what Carlson thinks, not all of them are white.

I think we have the potential to be a great country, to be a leading light as we once were because we more or less invented representative government. We need to invent a post industrial economy. Not easy, but it can be done. We have the huge advantage of all the different cultures that have and are blending into the general American culture, flavoring it, inspiring it. We’re going to have to break up the oligarchy first, but we’ve done that before.

And white people need to get over themselves. I’ve lived for the last 35 years in a large American city (9th largest) where I, as a white person, am a minority. I’ve been fine. No complaints at all.

And the food, my friends. You just can’t beat the food.

“I’m trying to remember which one of my college professors said that the key to understanding something is to avoid learning anything about it at all costs… oh wait, none of them.”

The college-level version of this is basically: “There are things out there I know nothing about and with which I won’t interact on any pretext. That’s why I can be objective about them.” I’ve heard that one a few times. Essentially it’s the foundation of English Tory criticism and of the work of T. S. Eliot in a few of his phases.

My husband and I are the only white people on our block. It was mostly white when we moved in.

It’s much nicer now, quieter, and we interact more with our neighbors, who are more neighborly. The Mexican family across the street mowed our lawn for us this week without even telling us. The Chinese family next door gave us some excellent wine for Christmas.

BTW, Tucker, the reason the food is better now is that all those foreigners you’re scared of brought food with actual flavor with them. I cannot count the times people I know have gotten off the plane here from a vacation in England and gone straight to a Mexican restaurant to wake up their taste buds.

If the white people who are replaced are the white supremacists and Fox “News”, I’m all for it. The country will be even better.

We were no such bloody thing, with a strong emphasis on the ‘bloody’ part.
We pretty much invented concentration camps, and our genocides have been held up as models by about every genocidal shitstain regime in the last 2 centuries. Yes, including that one.

because we more or less invented representative government.

Wrong again, we’re just the first imperial power to claim to be one without a figurehead monarch since the Roman Republic. There are lengthy traditions of democratic and representative governance on every continent, most especially including Europe and North America.

And white people need to get over themselves

There’s an absolutely appalling, and fairly terrifying, lack of self-awareness in posting this after the rest of that paean to imperialism, genocide, and slavery you wrote. Yes, that is what you wrote. By claiming that the US is a force for good in the world, you are explicitly endorsing all the things we did to get here.

Dalillama is right in that the USA didn’t invent anything democracy-wise. Also, I … would not … take the USA as an example of melting pot of culture. Like, sure, it’s why their propaganda book say, but have that ever been true ? And the USA certainly never took good innovations from other countries political system. The fact they still adhere and venerate their old ass constitution is one of the proof for that.

That being said, the USA in the XIX and XXth centuries was reliably better about its dealing than Europa (and URSS, if you consider it not-Europa). I mean, for all the horrors that the USA did, I can find worse european version. Like sure, maybe there weren’t physical concentration cmaps in the Belgian Congo, but the country itself was more or less a giant labor camp. And don’t get me started on how many dictators the frenchies have installed in Africa.

I don’t think Otrame is anywhere near an apologist of imperialism like Dallilama say, but the post is still pretty optimistic at best.

As for 45, admitely, I scrolled past your post at first, but re-reading the end it’s pretty comical :

1) most Americans enjoy a pretty decent living style compared to probably 90+% of the world. -> you have no idea of numbers. 10% of the world is 500 millions, or less people than in Europa, who consistently have better or at least equal living condition to the USA. That comically remind of theses americans that think electricity is a luxury in Europa.

That’s *well* before the fact that middle/high classes exist in Asia and Africa and also have decent mean of living. I won’t try to make an estimation of their numbers, but try to make *much* more conservative estimate next time.

2) Technology -> mostly good in an absolute sense, not all that good when reported to country size and wealth

3) Military might -> probably right, but mostly because the USA is like half the total military budget of the whole world. Also, americans nukes / drones / SEALs aren’t exactly top notch, and their fighter are *really* overpriced at the very least. Probably also not exactly top of the line.

4) The Vote -> Modern european countries are almost all based on that. That’s a very very bizarre claim of fame in a world where the french revolution is an historical event and english have done that since like several centuries before the USA was formed. And remember that the USA was originally based around representation of a slightly expanded ruling classes, like in England ; once again, no originality here.

American exceptionalism is a travesty. The USA should be considered part of the white european block, because it never was particulary original or different. Also, don’t overestimate the economic, cultural, and technologic advancement of the western block compared to the rest of the world. It’s all too easy to think we’re special in the west.

Sort of related, the first Capitol insurrectionist has pleaded guilty. I found this escpacialy interesting:

Schaffer is now the first pro-Trump rioter to plead guilty and admit his crimes. His plea was in the works for at least a few weeks, and recent court filings revealed that the met with Federal investigators for several “debrief interviews” last month.

Prosecutors and Schaffer’s attorneys agreed to recommend that he get between 3.5 and 4.5 years in prison, based on how fruitful his cooperation is with the government. 

So he’s now a cooperating informant. Looks like the Feds will be getting a lot of dirt on the Oathkeepers. Wonder if they’ll treat it as a terrorism case, or go down the RICO route.

Where did they eat in England? Nowhere reasonably urban, I’m guessing. We have plenty of international cuisine here: it’s not all bland beef and boiled cabbage, and hasn’t been for a long time. I had Thai a couple of days ago, and this weekend I’m thinking either Korean or South Indian.

@Moggie: One example: they’d done a long tour of Ireland, Scotland, and then England, of course including many of the big cities in each as well as rural areas, and a week in London… and they still needed Mexican food when they came home. Because y’all don’t have that on every corner. (English rural food was worse than Irish and Scottish.)

My point stands, though: Britain’s got good food now too thanks to those terrible foreigners Tucker’s whining about. Not a lot of Thai food in 1776 in either country.
