‘It’s not funny, they’re destroying this country’: Pirro rebukes Gutfeld’s lofty migrant ‘replacement theory’

An exchange between Fox News cohosts Jeanine Pirro and Greg Gutfeld grew tense on Tuesday’s edition of “The Five” when a lighthearted take on “replacement theory” was passionately rebuked.

Under the watch of President Joe Biden’s administration, the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border has only worsened. As such, some county officials in southern Texas made clear that they had had enough and urged Gov. Greg Abbott (R) and the Department of Homeland Security to recognize the invasion for what it was.

Seemingly debating from different angles on the same side of the argument, Gutfeld steered the conversation into triggering Pirro by considering the benefits of legal immigration by aliens who genuinely wish to be a part of American society. “True, it may just be for a paycheck,” he said, “but that’s often just to start.”

“We are talking about largely God-fearing, family-centric people who aren’t afraid of a day’s hard work. They are, in short, the complete and utter opposite of what is dripping out of our campuses like coagulated pimple juice,” Gutfeld continued, as he expounded on how he felt new citizens would behave. “Would a guy or a girl from Guatemala burn an American flag when they come here? No, they’re happy to be here. Would a young Hispanic couple be okay with drag queens in kindergarten? Hell no.”

“I say bring them in. Trade ’em for the worthless white wokesters that are destroying this country. That’s my replacement theory,” he jested with a reference to the notion that Democrats have long been in favor of open borders to build their voting base and support for future elections.

Though agreeing with the premise that legal immigration was beneficial and illegal immigration was a disaster, Pirro could not find the humor in her cohosts as she chided, “It’s not funny, Greg. The truth is, they are destroying this country.”

“The problem,” she said, “is not just what’s happening to them on the way here. The problem is what is going on once they get here.”

“The people who are coming here–and you know what I’m not gonna say they’re good, bad or indifferent–I don’t know who the hell they are. I want to know what their record is, I want to know who’s a drug dealer. I want to know who’s a pedophile… I want to know all this stuff,” Pirro continued as she touched on the numerous troubles that can cross a porous border.

As it stands, enough fentanyl to kill millions is reportedly crossing the border on a weekly basis into the United States, and so when Gutfeld asked for clarification on “Who is destroying this country?” Pirro was well-prepared to lay into the sources of the chemical scourge – China and Mexico.

“Let me finish, Greg. In terms of what’s coming into this country. The fentanyl that’s coming in. The United States is not controlling the border. The cartels are controlling the border…Whether or not you like immigrants or don’t is not the question. The question before us,” she concluded, “is why we are allowing a generation between the ages of 18 and 45 to be killed by a drug war, an undeclared war by China toward the United States where Mexico is making a fortune. That’s the problem.”
