The Great Replacement Theory and the GOP's War On America

So it’s all part of a plan build upon paranoia and figments of facts emulsified with tons of fraud and lies, bought and paid for by certain extremist masters of the universe sociopaths. Be careful what you wish for.

Analysis by Philip Bump - National columnist - May 9, 2022

It was about a year ago when Fox News’s Tucker Carlson first eagerly ripped off the mask.

“I know that the left and all the little gatekeepers on Twitter become literally hysterical if you use the term ‘replacement,’ if you suggest for the Democratic Party is trying to replace the current electorate, the voters now casting ballots, with new people, more obedient voters from the Third World,” he said in April 2021. “But they become hysterical because that’s what’s happening, actually.”

This was an explicit evocation of a line of argument, once confined to the right-wing, white nationalist fringe, called “great replacement theory.” The idea, as Carlson makes clear, is not simply that immigration to the United States could reshape American politics but that some cadre of elites is intentionally encouraging that to happen. That there was a sinister plan to literally “replace” native-born Americans with immigrants …

The “great replacement” theory describes a supposed elite conspiracy to change the demographics of America, replacing and disempowering white people – and their influence – with people of color, immigrants and Muslims. In recent years the lie has gone from far-right fringe to Republican party mainstream.

But anyone hoping that Buffalo would break the fever looks set to be disappointed. On the contrary, critics say, Republicans will probably intensify their racist rhetoric to prey on fears and energise supporters for the midterm elections, increasing the likelihood of more Buffalo-style violence.

As Nebraska Republicans moved to ban most abortions in their state on Wednesday, one used arguments straight from the racist “great replacement” conspiracy theory to push for the bill’s passage.

Nebraska Sen. Steve Erdman argued that abortion had caused slow population growth in the state over the last half-century—and argued that it had hurt Nebraska economically.

“Our state population has not grown except by those foreigners who have moved here or refugees who have been placed here. Why is that? It’s because we’ve killed 200,000 people. These are people we’ve killed,” Erdman [said] ( during debate, after lamenting that if abortion had been illegal that would have resulted in more people who “could be working and filling some of those positions that we have vacancies.” …
Crazy man!

Incidentally, for what it’s worth - a human fetus doesn’t take on the mantle of “personhood” until after it’s born and air is pumping through it’s lung and infusing it’s veins and arteries.

And the tragedy of a woman facing a crisis and having to weigh the abortion option should not be allowed to be turned into a baby making factors for producing more fodder the masters of universe convenience!

One year later, and here we are.

Rachel Maddow, joined by Kathleen Belew, an expert on the white power movement in the United States, looks at the interconnectedness of radical, right-wing mass killings and Republican politics under Donald Trump that has embraced some of the same ideology.

That’s just crazy and even if several Black people had power, what of it? It’s not like there won’t be any white folks in power too. Sounds to me like more craziness of the Reich.

Find a scapegoat and you blame them for everything! It is a preferred Trumpian strategy.

He blames the Democrats for the crimes he is currently being charged with in court.

Here is Joe Biden helping to fan the flames of the supposed conspiracy theory by acknowledging that Whites are being replaced and stating it is a good thing.

Looks like you did not read the disclaimer.


This clip, title, and description were not created by C-SPAN.

Who then created this clip that CSPAN reported on?

Who cares? CSPAN is just stating they did not produce the clip, probably for copyright reasons.

Don’t know what to make of the above comments, since I don’t know that much about it.
What I do know about is simple stuff that really happened, but expect Right Winger to digest facts and the implications and cascading consequences of stories like this, and they go apoplectic :

Too many whites try too hard to pretend this stuff isn’t important to consider.

You can’t change reality by using different words. Biden saying it’s good, doesn’t make it good. Calling it replacement theory isn’t evidence that backs up that theory.

In the 54-second clip you linked, Biden notes the demographics are changing. That is a fact. That is our history, from long before the current two-party system. The question is, is it a strength, as Biden says here, or a weakness?

In one of the lengthier clips, “Biden White Replacement”, he says, “I’m talking about being able to see each other, see who we are, understand how similar we are. It’s about recognizing the dignity that every person in America is entitled to be afforded, without exception.” This isn’t secret code for a plan to replace anybody. It’s a choice.

Without that longer discussion, there is no way we will deal with the problems that occur when different cultures come together and are asked to live under a rule of law that doesn’t favor one of those cultures. It’s a question of the spirit of the founding documents versus the letter. There is a lot in those documents about equality and accepting change and an awareness that change is something to embrace. There is also plenty in there to claim this is supposed to be a nation run by male landowners of European descent.

I think it doesn’t help anyone who is on the side of the “whites” when they can’t even make the case for why it’s better to have them as a majority. Instead, they have to claim a conspiracy that’s trying to erase them.


If you want to live in a liberal democracy, you’re going to need a White majority. Nobody else can produce that type of society besides the W.E.I.R.D.s


There’s no reasonable response to that

Segregation is not related to this topic, but the truth is redlining was necessary because Blacks and Browns tend to ruin neighborhoods. Look at what happened to the cities after White Flight.

You didn’t read the article did you?

What??? Do you even realize what you are saying? I suggest you reconsider that remark. Your logic is seriously skewed.

There have been many wealthy and orderly black cities or neighborhoods in the US that thrived and were model communities.
It is the whites that burnt them to the ground.

Tulsa race massacre

The Tulsa race massacre , also known as the Tulsa race riot or the Black Wall Street massacre ,[12] was a two-day-long white supremacist terrorist[13][14] massacre[15] that took place between May 31 – June 1, 1921, when mobs of white residents, some of whom had been appointed as deputies and armed by city government officials,[16] attacked black residents and destroyed homes and businesses of the Greenwood District in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

The event is considered one of the worst incidents of racial violence in American history.[17][18] The attackers burned and destroyed more than 35 square blocks of the neighborhood—at the time one of the wealthiest black communities in the United States, colloquially known as “Black Wall Street.”[[19]]

There you have it , white Americans killing black Americans

(Tulsa race massacre - Wikipedia)

Everywhere Blacks congregate is a dump.

Yes, the dump made by whites.

From the 1920s to the 1970s, chemical companies made polychlorinated biphenyls, or PCBs, in Anniston, Alabama. The compounds were used as lubricants and insulators in electrical machinery. They also cause cancer and damage brain structures in humans, and were banned in the U.S. in 1979.

But by then, more than 800 tons of PCBs had been released into a local canal, 32,000 tons more into the city’s open landfill. Within the majority black city, black neighborhoods were hardest hit by the pollutants. Today, creeks still run red, and there are “dead zones” where vegetation cannot grow. Even young people contend with cancer and other illnesses—the brother of one local activist died of lung and brain cancer at just 16.

In 2003, residents won a lawsuit against Monsanto worth hundreds of millions, but each of the more than 18,000 complainants only received a few thousand. Adults, saddled with homes they could not sell, were awarded $9,000 each, while children contending with the possibility of a lifetime of intellectual disabilities and health struggles were given just $2,000. Some of the funds created a clinic to treat the still-suffering Anniston residents. It ran out of money and folded in 2017.

That’s because he’s a sick man who can’t stand to admit he broke any laws or that anything is his fault. His sickness won’t allow him to admit he can do wrong.

This is pure racism. Black people do not wish to live in a dump. That dump you say they live in was created by greedy white men, who built highways to divert away from Black neighbourhoods and businesses. Then the greedy white men did things to cause Black businesses to fail. The list of thing that greedy white men have done to minorities of any colour goes on and on. That’s not even talking about women. White woman that’s one strike. Man of colour, one strike. A woman of colour, that’s two strikes. Greedy white men don’t like anyone. They don’t even like poor white men for that matter.

Everywhere on earth Blacks live is extremely dysfunctional. It is because of the people living there.

Industrial pollution is terrible, but it is not the reason for the primitive state Blacks live in worldwide.

In developed countries it is.

Crumbling pipes, tainted water plague black communities

Like many poor African-American communities, Campti’s poverty is a significant impediment to making crucial improvements to the town’s infrastructure – including its old water system. Hayes is a lifelong resident of the town, where according to the U.S. Census Bureau, more than half of the predominantly African-American population lives in poverty. Campti’s median household income is only $15,428.

Skepticism about drinking water is pervasive in many black communities, most recently in the urban cities like Milwaukee, where high childhood lead poisoning rates plague the city, and Flint, Michigan, where lead from pipes leached into the city’s water. But it also affects the pockets of poverty in states such as Louisiana, Alabama, North Carolina and Texas, where many residents rely on antiquated water systems and haphazard monitoring or live near businesses and industries whose waste, they say, pollutes their water systems.

“Everything that happens now where people don’t want it, it goes into a poor and black neighborhood,” said Esther Calhoun, president of Black Belt Citizens Fighting for Health and Justice.

A News21 national analysis of water violations from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency found that tens of millions of Americans are drinking contaminated water – particularly in small, low-income and minority communities. Aging infrastructure and limited funding are two of the major water issues posing a threat to public health, according to the agency’s 2016 Drinking Water Action Plan.

It’s people like Trump who allow these conditions to exist.

The Fed (Biden) has made funds available for improvement, but states, counties, and cities do not use those funds for “community development”, unless it is a park in a rich neighborhood.

These conditions are not the fault of the residents, it is fault of the “powers that be”, and happen to be white.
