Carlson laughs off critics, doubles down on claim Dems use mass immigration to ‘replace’ U.S. voters

Fox News host Tucker Carlson began his Monday program with a lengthy double-down on a prior claim that Democrats are using mass migration to “replace” U.S. voters so the party can perpetually remain in power.

“Last week, we said something on television that the usual chorus of hyper-aggressive liars is now pretending was somehow highly controversial,” Carlson began in reference to an exchange he had last week with fill-in host Mark Steyn, who aired a segment about how federal officials are permitting illegal immigrants to fly without proper ID.

“I’m laughing because this is one of about 10 stories that I know you’ve covered where the government shows preference to people who have shown absolute contempt for our customs, our laws, our system itself, and they’re being treated better than American citizens,” Carlson told Steyn.

“Now, I know that the left and all the little gatekeepers on Twitter become literally hysterical if you use the term ‘replacement,’ if you suggest that the Democratic Party is trying to replace the current electorate, the voters now casting ballots, with new people, more obedient voters from the Third World,” he added. “But they become hysterical because that’s what’s happening, actually.”

Calling it an issue of “voting rights,” Carlson went on to note that the “prediction” about the “little gatekeepers on Twitter” came to fruition as critics revisited previous calls to have him taken off the air over his comments. 

“Once again, they will fail, though it is amusing to see them keep at it. They get so enraged. It’s a riot,” the host said.

Carlson went on to expound on his original comments, citing examples of states like California that were once Republican strongholds but are now solidly Democrat thanks to a few decades’ worth of mass immigration.

“Demographic change is the key to the Democratic Party’s political ambitions. Let’s say that again for emphasis because it is the secret to the entire immigration debate: Demographic change is the key to the Democratic Party’s political ambitions,” he said. 

“In order to win and maintain power, Democrats plan to change the population of the country. They’re no longer trying to win you over with their program. They’re obviously not trying to improve your life. They don’t even really care about your vote anymore. Their goal is to make you irrelevant,” Carlson continued.

“That is provably true. And because it’s true, it drives them absolutely crazy when you say it out loud,” the host added. “But no matter what they’re allowed to say in public, everyone understands the truth: When you change who votes, you change who wins. That fact has nothing inherently to do with race or nationality. It’s the nature of democracy. It is always true. You can watch it happen, probably have.”

Carlson cited examples of states around the country where demographic shifts are also occurring, much of it due to mass immigration as in Texas, which has been trending purple for the past 10 years.

“As recently as 1992, Vermont was reliably Republican, hard to believe as that is. Vermont is now a parody of lifestyle liberalism. That’s demographic change at work. You see the same thing happening in the state of New Hampshire as refugees from Massachusetts flood north and bring their bad habits with them,” he said. 

“Montana, Idaho, and Nevada all face similar problems. The affluent liberals who wrecked California aren’t sticking around to see how that ends,” he added. “Pretty soon, people who are born in the Mountain West won’t be able to live there. They’ll be, yes, replaced by private equity barons, yoga instructors, and senior vice presidents from Google.”

Later, Carlson noted that as foreign-born populations rise and dominate regions and states, U.S. citizens lose voting power and representation, especially minority groups like blacks who have seen their political influence wane and evaporate in cities and regions where they were once more prominent.

“According to demographer Joel Kotkin, over the last 30 years, the proportion of black residents in Los Angeles has dropped by half. The city of San Francisco is now just 5% black; in 1980, it was 13%. You’ve heard a lot lately about the necessity of black political power. In California, that power is evaporating due to mass immigration,” said Carlson.

He also said that Democrats are now openly discussing the “replacement” of American voters, citing a recent New York Times columnist as well as Democratic politicians like Julian Castro.

“This is what it looks like when an entire native population — black and white, but every one of them an American — is systematically disenfranchised. Middle-class Americans become less powerful every year,” Carlson said in conclusion. 

“They have less economic power, and thanks to mass immigration, they now have less political power,” he said. “The leaders making these changes have no sympathy for their victims. They blame the country for its own suffering. You always hate the people you hurt.”
