Fox News host Tucker Carlson cavalierly dismissed an accusation by the Anti-Defamation League over remarks he made on his show earlier this week about Democrats’ efforts to ‘replace’ white, largely conservative voters with third-world immigrants of color because they will more obediently back their party.
Podcaster and former Fox News host Megyn Kelly, who had Carlson on as a guest on Friday, noted that after Carlson’s comments, the ADL accused him of “openly embracing white nationalist talking points” while again calling on the network to fire him.
“Sure enough, on cue, the ADL comes out and comes after you,” Kelly said, noting that the group is attacking him over his “great replacement” theory.
“The ADL? Oh, f**k them,” Carlson said dismissively.
“The ADL was such a noble organization that had a very specific goal, which was to fight antisemitism,” Carlson continued after some crosstalk. “That’s a virtuous goal. I think they were pretty successful over the years. Now it’s operated by a guy who’s… just an apparatchik of the Democratic Party.”
The ADL is currently run by Jonathan Greenblatt, who was the director of the White House Office of Social Innovation and Civic Participation during the Obama administration.
Carlson went on to suggest that Greenblatt’s “inherited” leadership of the organization has been “corrosive” because he is using the ADL “for partisan ends.”
Carlson has discussed “the great replacement theory” a number of times on his show, most recently on Wednesday when he played a clip of then-Vice President Joe Biden appearing to support mass immigration as a way to dilute and deemphasize the majority white population.

“You’ve got to ask yourself, as you watch the historic tragedy that is Joe Biden’s immigration policy, what’s the point of this? Nothing about it is an accident, obviously,” said Carlson as he opened his program monologue following a report by network correspondent Bill Melugin, who was covering the Haitian migrant crisis in Del Rio, Texas, this week.
“It is intentional. Biden did it on purpose. But why? Why would a president do this to his own country? No sane, first-world nation opens its borders to the world,” he added.
The top Fox News host then played the clip of Biden, from 2015, in which the then-VP said: “An unrelenting stream of immigration. Nonstop, nonstop. Folks like me who are Caucasian, of European descent, for the first time in 2017 we’ll be an absolute minority in the United States of America. Absolute minority. Fewer than 50 percent of the people in America from then and on will be white European stock. That’s not a bad thing. That’s a source of our strength.”
“The source of our strength is non-White DNA?” Carlson told Kelly in response, turning the tables on the Democratic president. “I mean, how could you say something like that? Really? So people’s value to the country is determined by their genes and their skin color? That’s like Nazi stuff.
“I’m 52. I grew up in a country that tried really, really hard – didn’t always succeed, but certainly tried as a matter of official policy – to be colorblind, and to judge people not on their appearances, but on what they do and the choices that they make, on their character, on their inherent moral value,” Carlson added.
