Ben Shapiro: The Media's Big Lie About the 'Great Replacement Theory' and Conservatism

 This week, a racist mass shooter massacred 10 people and wounded three others at a Buffalo, New York, supermarket. The shooter was a white supremacist; his hate-filled 180-page screed about why he had committed the shooting was replete with neo-Nazi sentiments. According to the shooter, he had to slaughter innocent black Americans in order to prevent the white population of the United States from being crowded out. "We are experiencing an invasion on a level never seen before in history," wrote the perverse murderer. "This is ethnic replacement. This is cultural replacement. This is racial replacement. This is WHITE GENOCIDE." 

        The shooter's theory, generally called the "great replacement theory," suggests that a shadowy cabal of elites, mainly Jewish, have deliberately undermined the racial purity of European countries by facilitating mass immigration and race-mixing. The shooter deliberately quoted the neo-Nazi slogan -- the so-called 14 Words -- "We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children." He called himself a white supremacist, a neo-Nazi and an antisemite. Among the sources for this morally sick belief system, the shooter cited various internet sources, particularly other mass shooters who released similar manifestoes. He did not mention Fox News; he did not mention any mainstream conservative, instead stating, "conservatism is corporatism in disguise, I want no part of it."

        None of this mattered to the Left-wing press, which immediately determined that the entire conservative movement was somehow guilty for the mass shooting. The New York Times headlined, "Republicans Play on Fears of 'Great Replacement' in Bid for Base Voters." The Washington Post accused Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., of "echo(ing) racist theory allegedly espoused by Buffalo suspect." The New Republic headlined, "The Great Replacement Theory Is Just Republican Orthodoxy Now." 

        What evidence did the media provide to the effect that conservatives, broadly writ, had espoused the Great Replacement Theory? They cited the belief among conservatives that the Left is generally friendly toward loose immigration in order to move the country in a progressive manner. Philip Bump of The Washington Post stated that nearly half of Republicans believed in the great replacement theory, citing a Pew poll that found that almost half of Republicans (and more than one in five Democrats) believed that "there is a group of people in this country who are trying to replace native-born Americans with immigrants who agree with their political views."

        This, of course, is not the great replacement theory, which centers on racial purity rather than the idea that changing demographics have an effect on political orientation. The latter premise has been taken for granted by the Left for decades (even though it is largely faulty, as changing Hispanic voting patterns demonstrate). In fact, the Left has often argued in favor of demographic change turning the country bluer: in 2003, John Judis and Ruy Teixeira wrote a book titled "The Emerging Democratic Majority," in which they argued that Democrats were building a new electoral coalition "in which white America is supplanted by multiracial, multiethnic America"; in 2012, Greg Sargent of The Washington Post observed, "The story of this election will be all about demographics... Rather than reverting to the older, whiter, more male version (of America's electorate) Republicans had hoped for, it continues to be defined by what Ron Brownstein has called the 'coalition of the ascen
dant' -- minorities, young voters, and college educated whites, particularly women"; in 2013, the Center for American Progress stated, "Supporting real immigration reform that contains a pathway to citizenship for our nation's 11 million undocumented immigrants is the only way to maintain electoral strength in the future."

        The goal here is obvious: conflate Republican positions with white supremacy in order to drive votes away from them. It's poisonous politics, and it happens to be a lie. But truth is of little or no priority when it comes to Left-wing politics, which are rooted always and forever in the idea that those who oppose their favored policies must be destroyed with any tool at hand.

Critical race theory being pushed by democrats is just adding fuel to this fire.

Ben Shapiro is what happens when little man syndrome goes unchecked. Sheesh.

Democrats are going to be shocked as Hispanic voters turn Republican. It began happening with President Trump. Now Biden has a 26% approval rating with Hispanics. Next thing you know, Democrats will be shouting “BUILD THE WALL”.

"Critical race theory being pushed by democrats"

Exactly where is this being pushed? What high schools have it as part of their curriculum? Seriously, I'd like you to name some, because, I don't believe the number is greater than 6.

CRT is a boogie man the republicans have to conjure up to scare people into believing in their nonsense.

In the documentary film, Alt-Right: Age of Rage, during an interview with Senior fellow of the SPLC Mark Potok, it can be clearly seen that he is tracking the declining Non-Hispanic white population of the USA since the Immigration Act of 1965.

"Great replacement theory" is a straw man. It's not a conspiracy. There's no "secret cabal." But there are a lot of elites who don't like white people and want to dilute our share of the population through immigration. They aren't even shy about it.

This guy is a piece of work. He writes the killer never “cited Fox News”. I have personally heard Tucker Carlson push this theory. Although Fox News is like MSNBC compared to OAN and Newsmax.

10:02, I didn’t insult his intelligence. I just find him intellectually dishonest. Most opinion-based commentators -regardless of media outlet type- are. He sells fear: “the democrats are corrupting, destroying, attacking…” blather. They are no more divisive as republicans are. If you fall for it, you’re the problem. He’s probably fabulously wealthy from it because he makes otherwise smart republicans feel they are consuming higher level political discourse. But they are just reading/hearing an OAN propaganda in disguise. Rachel Maddow is the same. Just different sides.

Always interesting when something happens everyone holds their breath waiting for the race to be known. The media absolutely loves it when they’re white. Notice how Buffalo gets all types of attention and others don’t when the race of the perp doesn’t meet the criteria? Notice all the clowns come out to push their agenda when they are white and quiet when they aren’t? Notice how things disappear from the propaganda cycle? Not that I condone any of it and the Buffalo shooter could’ve done more to advance his hypocritical agenda by not killing innocent people. Ol’ Joe sure showed up for that shooting but didn’t go to Cali or Wisconsin, I wonder why? Another thing I try to understand is when my people get attacked by Blacks or Whites, they expose the white person from their shoe size to their favorite color, but you have to search high and low for a suspect if they’re Black and when they’re Black the useful idiots will say the black suspect did it because of Trump or White Supremacy. It boggles the mind.

Ben’s tribe was there when the coinage of Rome was debased from gold into bronze coins with no precious metals left in them. They were also there when the barbarians invaded Rome.

“The media,” says Ben. Well, who is that? They have names and they have faces, don’t they, those who largely manage “the media,”produce its content, direct its programming, write its scripts and its reportage, those who decide what’s news and to be reported and what’s not news and not reported? But fewer and fewer will name the names and attach their pictures. Fewer still will publish such.

Until someone checks these Big Media Southern Baptist and Mormon liberals, we can expect “the media” to continue to “conflate Republican positions with white supremacy in order to drive votes away from them.”

As if this is all new politics. It's business as usual. In the 30's anyone advocating for simple worker's rights was a "Red" leading the nation to Communism. In the 60's people trying to get their constitutional right to vote were Communist agitators. Put the shoe on the other foot and now people for secure borders are racists advocating "replacement theory". This stuff is bolstered by the fact that there's always been a few really radical nitwits espousing destructive positions. But for the left and right it's all just a strategy of demonizing the opposition, scaring the majority into supporting them. It's nothing new, and it's employed by both sides, but it can be dangerous if taken seriously by the majority. It's a sad part of our political fabric.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required.
