Shooting? What shooting?

You mean the mass shooting at a supermarket in Buffalo Saturday that left 10 people dead, and three injured? The one where 11 of the 13 victims were African American?

The one where the killer posted a manifesto citing the "great replacement theory" as his motivation? The one being investigated as an act of domestic terrorism? That shooting?

"The Great Replacement Theory" has been a favorite talking point of Fox News superstar Tucker Carlson for several years now.

It's a liberal plot, "to change the racial mix of the country," Carlson told viewers on Sept. 22, 2021.

"To reduce the political power of people whose ancestors lived here, and dramatically increase the proportion of Americans arrived from the third world ... In political terms, this is called the policy of Great Replacement, the replacement of legacy Americans with more obedient people from far-away countries."

The term "Great Replacement" is, as Carlson modestly notes, not his own. It was coined by a French white nationalist, Renaud Camus, in a 2011 book "Le Grand Remplacement" (his specific target was French Muslims), but the idea is an old favorite in America.

An old idea

The dread of "miscegenation," a favorite hobbyhorse of Klansmen, Nazis, and like-minded people, had everything to do with the fear of being "replaced" or racially "diluted."

"A White America or a mongrel America " you must take your choice!" warned Mississippi senator Theodore Bilbo in 1947.

"Have you read 'The Rise of the Colored Empires' by this man Goddard?" asks Tom Buchanan, the wealthy oaf in "The Great Gatsby," published in 1925.

"The idea is that if we don't look out the white race will be " will be utterly submerged. It's all scientific stuff; it's been proved."

To which even the very privileged white people at Tom's tea table roll their eyes."

Sorry but any righty who claims their side isn't overtly racist at this point is just another gullible idiot or is too ----------- to admit their own racism.

We've seen it with 1/6.

We've seen it with Trump and the increasingly fascist GOP.

We're seeing the answer to the question "how could the Germans stand by and let the Nazis do what they did?"

I am sure it has nothing to do with that piece of craps fanboy love for Tucker Racist Carlson.
