The Media’s Big Lie About the ‘Great Replacement Theory’ and Conservatism

This week, a racist mass shooter massacred 10 people and wounded three others at a Buffalo, New York, supermarket. The shooter was a white supremacist; his hate-filled 180-page screed about why he had committed the shooting was replete with neo-Nazi sentiments. According to the shooter, he had to slaughter innocent black Americans in order to prevent the white population of the United States from being crowded out. “We are experiencing an invasion on a level never seen before in history,” wrote the perverse murderer. “This is ethnic replacement. This is cultural replacement. This is racial replacement. This is WHITE GENOCIDE.”

The shooter’s theory, generally called the “great replacement theory,” suggests that a shadowy cabal of elites, mainly Jewish, have deliberately undermined the racial purity of European countries by facilitating mass immigration and race-mixing. The shooter deliberately quoted the neo-Nazi slogan — the so-called 14 Words — “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children.” He called himself a white supremacist, a neo-Nazi and an anti-Semite. Among the sources for this morally sick belief system, the shooter cited various internet sources, particularly other mass shooters who released similar manifestoes. He did not mention Fox News; he did not mention any mainstream conservative, instead stating, “conservatism is corporatism in disguise, I want no part of it.”

None of this mattered to the Left-wing press, which immediately determined that the entire conservative movement was somehow guilty for the mass shooting. The New York Times headlined, “Republicans Play on Fears of ‘Great Replacement’ in Bid for Base Voters.” The Washington Post accused Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., of “echo(ing) racist theory allegedly espoused by Buffalo suspect.” The New Republic headlined, “The Great Replacement Theory Is Just Republican Orthodoxy Now.”

What evidence did the media provide to the effect that conservatives, broadly writ, had espoused the Great Replacement Theory? They cited the belief among conservatives that the Left is generally friendly toward loose immigration in order to move the country in a progressive manner. Philip Bump of The Washington Post stated that nearly half of Republicans believed in the great replacement theory, citing a Pew poll that found that almost half of Republicans (and more than one in five Democrats) believed that “there is a group of people in this country who are trying to replace native-born Americans with immigrants who agree with their political views.”

This, of course, is not the great replacement theory, which centers on racial purity rather than the idea that changing demographics have an effect on political orientation. The latter premise has been taken for granted by the Left for decades (even though it is largely faulty, as changing Hispanic voting patterns demonstrate). In fact, the Left has often argued in favor of demographic change turning the country bluer: in 2003, John Judis and Ruy Teixeira wrote a book titled “The Emerging Democratic Majority,” in which they argued that Democrats were building a new electoral coalition “in which white America is supplanted by multiracial, multiethnic America”; in 2012, Greg Sargent of The Washington Post observed, “The story of this election will be all about demographics…Rather than reverting to the older, whiter, more male version (of America’s electorate) Republicans had hoped for, it continues to be defined by what Ron Brownstein has called the ‘coalition of the ascendant’ — minorities, young voters, and college educated whites, particularly women”; in 2013, the Center for American Progress stated, “Supporting real immigration reform that contains a pathway to citizenship for our nation’s 11 million undocumented immigrants is the only way to maintain electoral strength in the future.”

The goal here is obvious: conflate Republican positions with white supremacy in order to drive votes away from them. It’s poisonous politics, and it happens to be a lie. But truth is of little or no priority when it comes to Left-wing politics, which are rooted always and forever in the idea that those who oppose their favored policies must be destroyed with any tool at hand.

Phew. Thank you.

Hear that, Father Tim?? Dave jerks it proudly, and so do I. So sorry if that grosses you out, but this is human nature we’re talking about. We’re not specimens in glass jars. Grow the h**l up!

Me too, Gary! Just about every day of the week. Sometimes I even use a toy, or put a finger up the ol’ back passage! Does that mean I’m condemned to eternal damnation, o holy father??

The original “replacement theory” was Christianity replacing the Covenant, effectively replacing God’s Chosen People recognized by God by Sabbath keeping, i.e. the Whole House of Israel, with Sunday-keeping Christians.

The more publicity given to white supremacists, the more they will appear. When our President states that white supremacists are the biggest threat to the country, someone somewhere will try to validate his statement. The murderer in Buffalo pulled the trigger but many media moguls poisoned his mind.

This is a totally made up “theory” and the work of a desperate political party (hopefully it will backfire). Particularly galling is Biden’s (and other Democrats’) selective moral outrage. I don’t recall Biden visiting New York City after the subway shooting or visiting Wisconsin after someone intentionally drove a van into a crowd of parade onlookers. I don’t recall anyone in the Left media criticizing the Bernie Sanders ( and huge Rachel Maddow and MSNBC fan ) supporter who attempted to shoot and kill Republican congressmen in 2017 (instead the Left once again used this event to urge even more gun control). You won’t hear the so-called mainstream media say that the Buffalo shooter never mentioned Fox News or Tucker Carlson in his lengthy manifesto, or that he was a self-proclaimed eco-socialist nationalist. Politicizing such a tragedy is beyond disgraceful, is all too typical of the Left, and does nothing to solve the problem. Crying racism (typically because someone disagrees with you) is a weak, pathetic exercise committed by those who know their arguments are weak and hold no water. I just hope Biden didn’t look at his watch in Buffalo the way he did when “honoring” the 13 brave U.S. service members who died (largely due to his incompetence) during our disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Just enforces the fact that most mass shooters have been liberal Democrats. We don’t need to ban guns we need to take care of the mental health issue that is the Democrat party! Anyone that votes Democrat should be immediately picked up and deported to a different country since they hate this one.

Liberals always accuse other of what they themselves are doing, always, So when they accuse someone of being a racist you can bet their the racist. They actually believe I as a Latino man am to stupid to figure out how to get an I.D. to vote.

This is what bozo Biden has been doing since they gave POTUS. Look to the southern border!
