Media Focuses On “Replacement Theory” To Blame All Republicans For Buffalo

This is why you cannot have an adult political conversation with Democrats anymore: they’ll take any issue and ramp it up so high that there’s no way to discuss it without screaming occurring. Think how no matter what Trump did It Was The Worst Ever. Now they’re taking a small notion that’s real and comparing it with the massive wacko version in order to “own the cons.” It’s all over, like at the NY Times, Washington Post, Business Insider, and so many more. The talking points memo went out, and the Credentialed Media complied

‘Replacement’ conspiracies driving gunmen creep into mainstream politics

Critics are drawing parallels between the pattern of racist gunmen citing fears of a conspiracy to “replace” Whites with rhetoric pushed on Fox and by some Republican politicians. (snip)

Some (mass shooters) apparently drew inspiration from a shooting by a White man in New Zealand who targeted mosques, killing 51, and published his own manifesto about “The Great Replacement.” (snip)

“Replacement theory” motivation — According to a 180-page document posted online, attributed to Gendron, he was fixated on what’s known as “replacement theory” — the idea that Whites are being slowly and intentionally replaced by minorities and immigrants.

Variations on this basic idea — that Whites are being replaced by some sort of minority-driven conspiracy — have made their way into more than just the musings of gunmen.

In case they missed it, the media themselves have run plenty of stories about whites being supplanted by “minorities”, primarily Hispanics. But, hey, it’s not racist to lump blacks, Asians, and Latinos all together, right?

The Fox and GOP version of replacement theory. Critics say it is dangerously close to xenophobic rhetoric finding its way into the mainstream of American politics.

Rep. Liz Cheney, a Wyoming Republican, pointed the finger squarely at her party’s leadership Monday morning, saying it has “enabled white nationalism, white supremacy, and anti-semitism. History has taught us that what begins with words ends in far worse. @GOP leaders must renounce and reject these views and those who hold them.”

Of course you get Cheney. Adam Kinzinger is also mentioned. Of course.

CNN’s Chris Cillizza has documented how the concept of replacement theory has been mentioned by lawmakers like GOP Rep. Scott Perry, who said this at a House Foreign Affairs Committee meeting in April of 2021:

“For many Americans, what seems to be happening or what they believe right now is happening is what appears to them is we’re replacing national-born American — native-born Americans to permanently transform the landscape of this very nation,” the Pennsylvania Republican said in reference to the number of people trying to enter the country at the United States’ southern border.

Has the media looked at the border, which is almost open? Where Democrats are letting in gobs of illegals/migrants, who, even if ordered deported, won’t be? That the Elites are allowing foreigners to constantly renew their visas, when they should be leaving at the end of the visa?

Race is enmeshed in US politics. Political rhetoric often feeds replacement fears by highlighting racial divides that are enmeshed in American life and politics.

Who’s making it that way the most? Democrats and their pet media, who seem to have to drag race into everything. I’m just wondering, is it the best idea for all the media to broadcast this “replacement theory” stuff? Because Americans will start reading it and go “you know, the theory might be correct. Why are we importing all these foreigners anyhow? Especially since they are not doing it through the legal citizenship route, but, just showing up, and they do not seem to want to BE AMERICANS, they just want to be here and force the U.S. to change.”

Interestingly, the same media is forgetting something else about the Buffalo shooter

The murderous nutter, Payton Gendron, spent about as much time on Jew hatred as he did on Black hatred. Read his manifesto (interestingly, Twitter has already wacked the link to it someone gave me. Try to find it elsewhere. It’s almost like the media and Big Tech do not want us to read it) (I downloaded it, the link is secure).

Why would the media not want to really talk about the Jew hatred? Makes you wonder.

    Right wing extremist? Hardly, in the “manifesto”, which is pretty rambling and about what you would expect of a raving psychopath, he in fact criticizes Fox news, makes no mention of Tucker Carlson that I could find and says “…on the political compass I fall in the mild-moderate authoritarian left category, and I would prefer to be called a populist.”

    Later he writes: “I would prefer to call myself a populist. But you can call me an ethno-nationalist eco-fascist national socialist if you want, I wouldn’t disagree with you.”

    Ah, yes, The old ethno-nationalist eco-fascist national socialist sect of the GOP. Super extreme right wing I hear.

    There are also numerous criticisms of capitalists and disdain for being labelled a conservative at all, writing that “conservativism is corporatism in disguise, I want no part of it.”

    So yeah, OBVIOUSLY this horrible crime couldn’t possibly be the work of an unhinged, violent douche bag, this was all the fault of us kooky, right wing, non-woke, liberty lovers and we need to be heavily censored, hand over our weapons immediately and take mandatory diversity and inclusion training.

    Quick! Before we start a riot of smash and grabs and arsons like we always do.

      If the alleged murderer was mentally ill then so are most wingers, who share the beliefs.

      When a winger finally shows the courage to act on their cowardly beliefs, other wingers are quick to say they’re really just insane.

      The alleged murderer’s beliefs differ little from those of commenters here who also believe that shadowy figures are importing brown immigrants to replace white society.

        Illiterate. Did you not see the “There are also numerous criticisms of capitalists and disdain for being labelled a conservative at all, writing that “conservativism is corporatism in disguise, I want no part of it.” part of his reply?

        Or how about this one: “…on the political compass I fall in the mild-moderate authoritarian left category, and I would prefer to be called a populist.”?

  2. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    If nuGOPhers like Teach don’t “believe” in the Replacement Theory why do they keep pushing it?

    Don’t start nothin’ won’t be nothin’

    White nationalist Unite the Right riot in Charlottesville:

    JEWS will not replace us!

    YOU will not replace us!

    Terrorist Robert Bowers murdered 11 and wounded 6 more at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, PA in 2018. He picked Jews to murder since they were bringing “illegals” to replace “legacy Americans” (white guys, but not native Americans or Black people). Wingers believe the Great Replacement Theory and the White Genocide Myth (we’ve heard it here, and will again).

    When will moderate wingers take control and responsibility for radical members?

    • Jack Kemp says:

      Again, he is not a right winger, moron.

    • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

      When will reasonable America loving Democrats take control and responsibility for the insanely radical and communistic racists in their party? They sure aren’t trying to unite America are they. Every day Dowd is here calling everyone names and framing everything as black vs. white. All while ignoring the stolen presidency, destruction of Trumps fantastic economy with radical socialist programs and giving our tax money to illegals and Ukrainian Nazis.

      What a group of fools.

      FJB and his ugly wife. Bring back Melania.

      • Elwood P. dOwd says:

        Melania? The stripper?

        It’s framed as White Nationalists vs America. The presidency wasn’t stolen; butt you know that. The tRump Virus hurt the tRump economy.

        FDT and his stripper wife.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      We should praise the Buffalo police for de-escalating the situation. A man in body armor had just shot over a dozen citizens, including a security guard, and came outside holding a semi-auto rifle and raised it. And the police talked him down. Kudos.

      This is not unlike how the Charleston police were able to de-escalate the capture of the white supremacist executioner of black church members in 2015. The murderer was taken without incident although he had a gun with him. Kudos.

    Lying Groooomer,

    The alleged murderer in Buffalo believes the same BS that you do, but was triggered to pull the trigger. You haven’t. Yet.
