The Left Can’t Have It Both Ways on the ‘Great Replacement’

The Left Can’t Have It Both Ways on the ‘Great Replacement’. By Matthew Boose.

Tucker Carlson sent the Left into a predictable frenzy of self-righteous rage this week by making a true, but politically incorrect, observation.

The invasion that is unfolding at the southern border, Carlson said, is purposeful. Joe Biden and his Democratic allies have embraced open borders because they want to change America’s racial demographics. They see their political destiny in replacing white conservatives with poor, non-white dependents from the Third World who will remain loyal to Democrats. By doing this, Democrats hope to secure permanent control of our political system.

Carlson, of course, was immediately denounced by the usual media hall monitors for promoting the “Great Replacement Theory.” Except Carlson was not saying anything that prominent Democrats do not already discuss, very publicly, and with unabashed enthusiasm. His only sin was suggesting that the Great Replacement might not be a good thing.

As Carlson correctly pointed out, the Left gets so rattled when the Right talks about the “Great Replacement” not because it is false, but precisely because it is true. Not only is it true, but it is an incredibly important goal of the Left, which is why, more than almost any other topic they consider verboten, it excites them so much.

When it comes to demographic change, Democrats try to play it both ways. On the one hand, they brag constantly about the imminent, irrevocable “browning” of America (or, if they are a little more subtle, the “blueing” of red states through mass migration.) But they condemn anyone who points out their gloating as a racist. …

Whatever you think of the Great Replacement, almost nobody, Right, Left, or center, believes any longer that it is not happening. It is widely acknowledged that, within a few decades, whites will become a minority in America. The only people required to pretend that this is not the case, oddly, are white people. …

For [the left], having fewer white people around is definitely a good thing. It’s their political Rapture. Here’s Joe Biden in 2015:



“Folks like me who are Caucasian, of European descent, for the first time in 2017 we’ll be in an absolute minority in the United States of America, absolute minority,” he said. “That’s not a bad thing, that’s a source of our strength.” …

Sure. And if you’re wrong, Mr President?

Since when did we, as a country, agree that white people should be replaced? This is a strange and obviously racist belief, but one that is now predominant in our culture, owing to its importance to the Left. …

If the Great Replacement really were a “conspiracy theory,” we would expect Democrats to support at least some form of border enforcement. But they don’t. Why? What reason could there be, if not the belief that white people are bad, America currently is too white, and open borders will make America less white, and therefore, better?

The administrative state did it, at the behest of the left.
