Come and let us pity white people. They are the real victims here.




That, in essence, is the battle cry that’s powered much of American politics for the last 30 years, the last 15 in particular. It has echoed from the halls of government to the set of Fox “News” to the far-flung strands of the world wide web.

Poor white people. They are being overrun by caravans when not murdered by illegals or terrorized by Muslims or tyrannized by masks or oppressed by vaccinations or canceled by culture or lied to by media or lied upon by media or cheated by elections or blamed by Blacks or vexed by “Press 1 for English.”

Or replaced — evicted from their God-ordained preeminence by “others” who will be obedient voters for the liberal left. So says the so-called “Great Replacement Theory,” which originated in the fever swamps of white supremacy and now has a regular megaphone on Fox, courtesy of Tucker Carlson.


But that hasn’t been his message alone. It’s also been the message of New York Rep. Elise Stefanik, Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz, would-be Ohio Sen. J.D. Vance, of conservatism as a whole, in response to a demographic shift first forecast years ago: that by 2050, people of color will constitute a majority of the population. Where some of us saw in that prediction change and challenge, they saw the gains to be made by fomenting white panic.


Thus, it was shocking and painful, but also predictable, that a stupid white boy with a stated belief in the replacement theory allegedly walked into a supermarket in Buffalo, New York, on Saturday and shot 10 Black people to death. Indeed, this was no more surprising than last year’s massacre of Asians in Atlanta, 2019’s massacre of Latinos in El Paso or 2015’s massacre of African Americans at a church in Charleston. Panicked people do terrible things.

But yes, come and let us pity white people. Many certainly pity themselves.

That’s how you get a country where Critical Race Theory is banned by law, but you can learn Great Replacement Theory by turning on Fox. Where voting keeps getting harder and gun ownership easier. Where Colin Kaepernick is unemployed, and Carlson is not.

Speaking of which, he addressed the shooting Monday on his show, somehow managing to blame “professional Democrats” without once mentioning the racist theory that he and the alleged shooter both happen to believe.

Garnell Whitfield Jr. was also on television that day. In a grief-tattered voice, he spoke of his family’s anguish at the loss of his 86-year-old mother, Ruth, who died in the shooting. “But we’re not just hurtin’,” he said. “We’re angry. This shouldn’t have happened. We do our best to be good citizens, to be good people. We believe in God. We trust Him. We treat people with decency and we love even our enemies. And you expect us to keep doing this over and over and over again. Forgive and forget. While the people we elect and trust in offices around this country do their best not to protect us, not to consider us equal, not to love us back.”

And suddenly, you knew he was speaking out of a bereft exhaustion that encompassed not just him and his family but all of us who have been betrayed by America and its dream. “What are we supposed to do with all of this anger,” he pleaded, “with all of this pain?”

The question resonated, as it has for years unending. And, as for years unending, no answer immediately presented itself.

But yeah, sure, let’s pity white people. Let’s never forget who the real victims are.

  How Elise Stefanik and the GOP sanitize ‘great replacement’ ugliness

Columnist May 1 6, 2022 at 11:25 a.m. EDT
Nothing gets Republicans like Rep. Elise Stefanik angrier than reciting their own words back to them at a politically inconvenient moment. So it is that the New York lawmaker is lashing out at critics who have noted her flirtation with “great replacement theory” in the wake of the horrific racist shooting in her home state.
Stefanik, meanwhile, declared  in ads last September that Democrats would legalize undocumented immigrants in a “PERMANENT ELECTION INSURRECTION.” That’s a  vile replacement trope  pushed by the No. 3 in the House GOP leadership.
Confronted by this  in the wake of Gendron’s alleged mass murder of mostly Black victims, a Stefanik adviser  insisted  she has “never advocated for any racist position,” while  raging against  “sickening” reporting and a “disgusting low for the left.”
Actually, the “disgusting low” was committed by Stefanik herself. Because in this episode we see how Republicans like Stefanik launder and sanitize these ideas in ways that insinuate them ever deeper into mainstream discourse.
The extent to which “great replacement” ideas have migrated from the fringe into something more routine among Republican lawmakers appears new. As many have noted, Fox News’s Tucker Carlson has relentlessly promoted  versions of the idea, and numerous Republican officials have done the same.
Or take J.D. Vance, the GOP Senate nominee from Ohio. He recently claimed  that President Biden’s “open border” will ensure “more Democrat voters pouring into this country.”

But once again, for the same reasons that Carlson and Stefanik cannot be permitted to get away with this scam of feigning racial neutrality, none of these Republicans can pretend to be warning only of   electoral   consequences.

Thanks Tess, first time that I remember you posting some research.  I think that Replacement Theory is flawed as Hispanic voters and African migrants may be persuaded to vote Repub.  As a group, migrants are:

  • More likely religious
  • Entrepreneurial
  • Strong family values
  • Willing to take personnel risk

But don't worry too much about the reality of this heinous racist mass murder, the 'real victims' will surely deflect from this with bullshit rhetoric about how blacks are the ones who are truly violent. How we shouldn't focus on the white supremacists and the right wing pushing racist replacement theories regularly on right wing conservative media, but instead focus on the crime found in poverty stricken communities of color that these same right wing conservatives seem to assume must be due to their skin color and not the systemic racism and prejudice that has afflicted these communities for decades even after the signing of the civil rights act and voting rights act. White Christian conservatives have clearly shown that they believe they're the victims here, they're the ones who were being oppressed by the voting rights act until their conservative court rolled back preclearance in the supposedly 'victimized' white conservative Christian South. They're the ones who think their religious freedoms are somehow under attack even while watching an officer kneel on the neck of a black man who was begging for air till his life was snuffed out. They're the ones who believe their nation is being 'stolen' from them through widespread voter fraud that their only proof for is that they lost.

So whenever another white supremacist starts shooting black Americans all these 'white victims' can do is deflect to the number of blacks being killed by other blacks, let's not spend any time talking about the mass shooter or the massive amount of right wing conservative media claiming whites are victims that clearly motivated him. And if others tell them to shove their racist deflections where the sun don't shine, their other favorite defense claiming they're being 'canceled' or 'silenced' will surely echo through the halls of right wing media.

Assuming sarcasm.  If you want to spend some time talking about mass shooters, you could start with this:

" Between 1982 and May 2022, 68 out of the 127 mass shootings in the United States were carried out by white shooters . By comparison, the perpetrator was African American in 21 mass shootings , and Latino in 10. When calculated as percentages, this amounts to 53 percent, 16 percent, and eight percent respectively."

There is a kind of continuum of white reaction to racial issues ranging from at the worst the sort of demented violence in Buffalo to whites who mock the way black people talk and dress. Every racist is not KKK, some are simply those who get a furrowed brow when they see a couple black people show up at the previously all white grocery store. 

What has gone on in recent years is a reaction to a trend in the US for a "reckoning" that will resolve 400 years of racism in America. This is the controversy over 1619 and critical race theory. There are many many whites who DO NOT WANT to be reminded that their ancestors carried on, for hundreds of years, racial prejudice and even racial oppression against blacks, Native Americans, and even Asians. The country cannot truly move forward without this reckoning. 

There isnt even the slightest doubt that some whites fear becoming the numerical minority in America. I think they are worried that a "colored" majority will treat them as badly as they treated the people of color generation after generation. The sad part is what will happen to the demographics is inevitable and the country needs to learn to take it more in stride.

You see these 'real victims' here - these white perpetually put upon, hateful, perpetually whining, hateful, endlessly whining, hateful and all their comments, perpetual bitching, and pissing, and moaning, and whining, hateful 'victims' here on my article.

Exactly, you never see progressives here mocking the way white southerners talk or dress

This is the controversy over 1619 and critical race theory.

I think that date isn't accurate. In 1526, African slaves were part of a Spanish outpost in what is now South Carolina, they rebelled and destroyed the settlement which was then abandoned. 

I think that the first African slaves were brought to what is today, St. Augustine, Fla., in 1565.

There is historical evidence that African slaves were captured from the Spanish and were part of Sir Francis Drake's command when he arrived at Roanoke Island in 1586. 

400 years is really 500 years.

Some is the key word.  While some whites may fear (feel uncomfortable) with the possibility of becoming the minority at some point I don't believe it is the multitudes that the media and democrats would have you believe.  And out of the few whites that may feel that way ones that will act upon it with a gun are a miniscule number.  It is human nature to be resistant to change.  The vast majority of people don't act upon it, they just want to live their lives.  The media seems to want it to seem there is a civil war brewing.  That would be great for their numbers but be painful for everyone else, not that they care about that.

Expect about 3 or more a day until the next mass killing. If it is by a white male the left will double down on the stupid and ratchet up the hate even more. If it is a African American, Latino, or Arab/Muslim they will downplay if hard, and this will all disappear. Because the last thing they want is anyone questioning their double standard.

Please note: The weekly killings in Chiraq do not count. The Democrats, media, and leftist lemmings don't give a shit about them and never will. Bring them up and get hit hard with the racist card.

As for the author- he plays the victim card hard. 

That’s how you get a country where Critical Race Theory is banned by law, but you can learn Great Replacement Theory by turning on Fox. Where voting keeps getting harder and gun ownership easier. Where Colin Kaepernick is unemployed, and Carlson is not.

Supposedly Critical Race Theory is only taught in college law. It is not taught, nor any element of it, in public schools at any grade level. So why the hell are they so damn upset? Because they know it is being taught under a different name; using books by the same publisher at CRT texts at the college level. Also, if anyone is so damn desperate to learn CRT- nothing is stopping from reading any of the texts. I am sure public libraries have them; if not- then they should happily support the publisher by purchasing the texts. Because CRT is so damn important.

As for Fox. The left is ginning up to try and get their first full ban on a network. Free speech be damned. If it is free speech the left doesn't like it needs to go. If Ukraine and China can do it; then so can the Dems. (Won't mention Russia here, the left really, really, really hates Russia after 2016. But yeah, like the Russians ban media they don't like as well.)

As for voting. The Democrats want no standards or regulations for voting. Just like for abortion- go figure. Pitts can't point out one damn law that makes voting more difficult. The Republicans rolled back measures the Democrats put into place for Covid. Supposedly Covid is no longer a thing; or is that just because the human fuck up machine with a D behind his name is in the Oval Office; and he promised to "end Covid"? Can't have him lying; or failing; or just flat out wrong. 

Ah yes gun ownership. Hard to tell which the left wants more. Unrestricted voting; unrestricted abortion; unrestricted immigration; getting rid of Fox and any media personality that doesn't agree with leftist dogma; or ending the Second Amendment. The left might have a real civil war among themselves if they were promised they could have just one of them; but the others would be lost to them forever.
