During a Senate speech on Monday, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said rhetoric from “MAGA Republicans,” Fox News – and specifically its top host Tucker Carlson – is fueling racism in the country.

He said that Carlson’s rhetoric warning against “great replacement theory” added fuel to racist’s beliefs about minorities seeking to “replace” them in American society.

“According to one measure by the New York Times, Fox’s top political pundit, Tucker Carlson, has spewed rhetoric that echoes replacement theory at least 400 times on his show since 2016. 400 times,” Schumer said. “This is a poison that is being spread by one of the largest news organizations in our country.”

“The message is not always explicit, but we’ve all seen the pattern,” he continued. “Every time MAGA Republicans or pundits wrongly vilify immigrants and call them ‘invaders,’ every time they falsely claim that millions of undocumented people cast ballots in our elections, every time loud, bigoted voices bemoan the disintegration of a ‘classic America’ the subtext is clear.”

“These hard-right MAGA Republicans argue that people of color in minority communities are somehow posing a threat, a threat to the American way of life,” he said.

  1. What a lying piece of shmutz. Every word out of his mouth is a lie. Shumar means fennel, which is a tasty vegetable, but Chuck is a rotten fennel that will ruin any salad he’s put in.

  2. Reply to Not getting involved
    No, the new democratic strategy is to repeatedly use the word “together”. There is a clip of kamela using the T word around 8 times in two sentences. Think it will work?

  3. All intended to triangulate his ENEMIES and drive people apart. Frame every bad act as sedition.

    He is the enemy of the civil society. Schumer is a slimy dangerous demagogue.

  4. please let’s not play the “national socialists” were “socialists” word game. the nazis (ym”sh) weren’t utopian marxists. the alleged shooter was clearly a neo-nazi, and let’s leave it at that.

  5. the democrats seem to be inserting “maga republicans” in every statement. it’s almost as if they were in a mid-term election or something, and dog-whistling for their supporters, instead of running on the issues.

  6. Of course, the reality is that millions of illegals are pouring unabated across the Southern border. The effect of adding millions of illegals to the voter rolls seems pretty obvious.

    But politics is 99.99% lies, especially when dealing with leftists.
