After the Anti-Defamation League renewed its call for Tucker Carlson to be fired from Fox News for voicing the racist “great replacement” theory about immigration, the primetime host had a pithy response: “Fuck them.”
Carlson was speaking to the former Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly on Sirius XM. He made the comments in question on his show on Wednesday, which averages more than 3 million viewers a night.
Claiming the Biden administration was trying “to change the racial mix of the country”, Carlson said: “In political terms, this policy is called ‘the great replacement’, the replacement of legacy Americans with more obedient people from far-away countries.
“They brag about it all the time, but if you dare to say it’s happening they will scream at you with maximum hysteria.”
The “great replacement theory” originated on the far right. Perpetrators of recent mass shootings have cited iterations of the theory in “manifestos” attempting to justify their actions.
Carlson raised the theory in April, claiming it was not racist but a matter of hardball politics. The ADL chief executive, Jonathan Greenblatt, called for Carlson to be fired.
Lachlan Murdoch, chief executive of the Fox Corporation, wrote back: “Mr Carlson decried and rejected replacement theory. As Mr Carlson himself stated … ‘White replacement theory? No, no, this is a voting rights question.’”
This week, Greenblatt repeated his call.
“For Tucker Carlson to spread the toxic, antisemitic and xenophobic ‘great replacement theory’ is a repugnant and dangerous abuse of his platform.
“If it somehow wasn’t clear enough before to the executives at Fox News that Carlson was openly embracing white nationalist talking points, let last night’s episode be case and point.”
The Council on American Islamic Relations also said Carlson should be fired.
Kelly asked Carlson how he felt when “sure enough the ADL comes after you”.
“The ADL?” Carlson said, laughing. “Fuck them.”
The ADL, he said, “was a noble organisation that had a very specific goal, which was to fight antisemitism, and that’s a virtuous goal. They were pretty successful over the years. Now it’s operated by a guy who’s just an apparatchik of the Democratic party.
“It’s very corrosive for someone to take the residual moral weight of an organisation that he inherited and use it for party.
“So the great replacement theory is, in fact, not a theory. It’s something that the Democrats brag about constantly, up to and including the president.
“And in one sentence, it’s this: ‘Rather than convince the current population that our policies are working and they should vote for us as a result, we can’t be bothered to do that. We’re instead going to change the composition of the population and bring in people who will vote for us.’ So there isn’t actually inherently a racial component to it, and it’s nothing to do with antisemitism.”
Kelly also played a clip of Joe Biden speaking in 2015, which Carlson used on Wednesday.
In the clip, the then vice-president says: “An unrelenting stream of immigration, non-stop, non-stop. Folks like me who were Caucasian, of European descent for the first time in 2017 will be in an absolute minority in the United States of America, absolute minority. Fewer than 50% of the people in America from then and on will be White European stock. That’s not a bad thing. That’s as a source of our strength.”
On Wednesday, Carlson said: “An unrelenting stream of immigration. But why? Well, Joe Biden just said it, to change the racial mix of the country … to reduce the political power of people whose ancestors lived here, and dramatically increase the proportion of Americans newly arrived from the Third World … This is the language of eugenics, it’s horrifying.”
Analysts have shown that the clip is edited misleadingly.
As the Washington Post pointed out, Biden made the remarks as part of “about six minutes of commentary, beginning with the fact that the city of Boston came together as a community after the bombing during the Boston marathon.
“‘I’m not suggesting … that I think America has all the answers here,’ Biden said. ‘We just have a lot more experience. By that I mean, we are a nation of immigrants. That’s who we are.’”

Tuckers show is a great show an he should stay right where he is. He speaks to Americans that are not brain washed by this stupid administration
Tucker is only show I watch every night I only watch fox bit others not as often wish tucker had taken over rush’s show he would have been great
American Islamic Council. If you do it like the facts, please leave the country. Go back to your own countries n piss n moan there n see how far you get.
I am tired of everyone trying to ruin America. N I am only one of tens of millions. We are already not the United States.
Tucker is exactly right, Biden has pushed this issue for years, the government is just pissed because he has pointed it out to the people, and I think if Fox news fires him for this shame on them and we should boycott them for doing so because that shows they are no better than CNN which caudles Biden and his views that is dangerous just look at what he has done to America already..
Fox is leaning left, BIG TIME! If they want their ratings go WAYYYYYY down, than go for it! Tucker, whom I LOVE, has his own show already anyway. And you’re right, David Ward, Fox will, if not ‘is’, like cnn. IT’S ALWAYS ABOUT MONEY! People are worshiping the wrong god!
Tucker, if they give you the boot, …..you’re better off with God and without them! Stick to your guns!
Funny (in a twisted way) how people are enraged by words that actually support the disgusting actions and policies of a corrupt administration. Tucker’s words speak the truth to the current shit show of the Biden administration. The liberal pukes should put merit behind action instead of being word triggered like a bunch of whiny snowflakes. The worlds a complicated and dangerous place and much more so with the moronic Democrats in power.
F&^K Greenblatt is right! Not one worn about a the anti Israel folks in congress!!!
Tucker is going to stand up to the fools
Tucker has displayed his dishonesty, ignorance, and abrasiveness way too long and shouild have been fired a long time ago. I can’t believe people with any brain power would watch him. I watch him from time to time just to see what new stupid thing he’s going to come up with. He and his other two musketeers are disgusting.
In same way hard to understand how anyone can watch likes of Rachael Maddow and other liberals pontificate with their opinions…. most of the time being an echo chamber for the left!
You have a lot of nerve. You need a good look in the mirror. Who do you think you are telling someone should be fired because they don’t agree with your rhetoric. The good thing about Fox news is that they allow everyone their space and let you decide what you like. They don’t shove their crap down your throat. You get to choose. I hope they never cave to people like you. The sad part is of those fools who only like to be lied to and stay with the medias like CNN, NBC, CBS, and all stations owned and operated only by left or Democratic people.
I agree, Tucker should not be on any news channels or anywhere else but at home.
That’s it…..now I think you should be fired.
So, ler me see if I get this correctly: You state, “I can’t believe people with any brain power would watch him. I watch him …..” Right! So much for brain power…
Not as disgusting as conspiracy theorist Rachael Maddow She spreads so may fake theories that never come true. She should have been fired years ago. All she does with her fake conspiracies is enrage ignorant people
Lol you must be talking about Rachael Maddow not tucker. She’s the biggest liar and conspiracy theorist on the news. What has she ever said that came out to be true ?????
I wonder how many people feel like I do — no Tucker, no Fox News for me.
Apparently not many thankfully…
Fox is the only media worth watching. I hope they never resort to lies to get fans. We like the fact that its an open forum of people who have facts as well as opinion. That makes it your choice , not what someone tells you to think.
I am tired of being replaced by illegal immigrants!
We all know this is an illegal way for the Democrats to try to win at the next election, just like the debacle in the last election.
Tucker offers up information while also supported with facts. We should get various hosts of the liberal media shows and have them debate the dreaded FOX hosts and perform live fact checking as we go. I don’t give a rats ass about someones opinion, but when the facts can be ascertained and the libtards choose to ignore them and then lie about it, that is problematic for all involved. We got rid of arguably the most pro-American productive president in my lifetime because the snowflakes were offended by his personality. Time to grow up and put your big boy (or girl) pants on and understand that pro-American policy is far more important than a prickly personality. And for all the current American citizens, illegals, and others that hate the USA. Dont let the door hit you in the ass and don’t forget to send a postcard from your chosen destination (Cuba, Venezuela, N Korea, Afghanistan, Russia, China, Iran, etc, etc.) I’m sure your liberal policies and mandates will play well there. Good luck!
He always ha attest show and always will that is why I watch him and hand.
