We’re past the point at which people can say the Great Replacement isn’t happening. The people applauding it say it is. They brag about it. Replacing whites seems to be a high priority. Increasing wages, protecting the environment, and fighting corporate power seem secondary.
Therefore, it is very hard to take these complaints seriously.
a few months ago people were calling for tucker to be fired for pushing the white nationalist "great replacement" conspiracy theory…instead, lachlan murdoch defended tucker over this and now its the centerpiece of nearly every single show pic.twitter.com/JTC4lEmWmK

1) Almost every problem we have in this country right now is about White people’s FEAR of demographic change & the GOP exploiting those fears for political gain. It’s ALL about race & racism. These dots are OBVIOUS & EASY TO CONNECT.

When leftists see people noticing The Great Replacement, they act like they’ve uncovered a dangerous conspiracy that justifies censorship. The same facts that Tucker Carlson talks about can be found in the New York Times or the Washington Post, just with a different spin.
There’s now a British version. Lionel Shirvier recently wrote in The Spectator about demographic change.
Unsurprisingly, then, a third of British school children are already from ethnic minorities; in 20 years, ethnic-minority children will constitute more than half the students in state schools. As of 2018, 90 per cent of immigrants were under 45. That means the ethnic transformation of the UK, whose white population is far older, is destined rapidly to accelerate.
Even delivering those dry statistics feels dangerous. As for their implications, none of you readers is supposed to care. In particular, white Britons who greet those figures with anything short of delight know perfectly well to keep their traps shut. The lineages of white Britons in their homeland commonly known back hundreds of years. Yet for the country’s original inhabitants to confront becoming a minority in the UK (perhaps in the 2060s) with any hint of mournfulness, much less consternation, is now racist and beyond the pale. I submit: that proscription is socially and even biologically unnatural.
It’s tiresome but necessary to point out double standards. Once again, if population change of this kind happened anywhere else, it would be called ethnic cleansing.
Responses on Twitter proved Mr. Shirvier’s point.

My Mum was “foreign-born” in a former British colony. She gave her life working for @TfL and the local Council.
My family is no less British than one from Windsor.

Both of my parents are ‘foreign born’ and I’m proud of it. Just more far right talking points being published in the Spectator. This time it’s the ‘great replacement’ theory. https://t.co/5W5FZgJ3jH

That Spectator piece by Lionel Shriver is one of the most intellectually dishonest pieces I've ever had the misfortune of reading.
The sleight-of-hand from talking about nationality to race, proposing that the nation is a container for racial homogeneity, is the logic of Nazism.
— Ash Sarkar (@AyoCaesar) August 31, 2021
What isn’t the “logic of Nazism” these days?
And who are these people? David Lammy is a Labour MP who does not seem to like white people or much of anything about England. He still claims to be as English as John Cleese, and, like many non-whites, wants to live in a historically white country. Bastit Mahmood writes about diversity and Islamophobia. Ash Sarkar’s great-great-aunt was a “terrorist” (her word) against the British Empire, a fact of which she is proud.
They may not like Britain and its natives, but living among their own in their homelands is evidently worse. Maybe they were better off under British rule. Once again, they may need us, but we really, really don’t need them.
Joy Reid is a leftist pundit who has openly bragged about America “inexorably becoming majority brown.” She said “demographics” turned California blue. She’s right.
However, this time she’s appealing to unity.
We remain, despite all of the progress we've seen over the past 60 years, two nations in one: one for white people, and another for those who are not white, with a system designed to police the one, and largely absolve the other. https://t.co/B7dXuFUGmq

At least Noah Smith openly discusses where he thinks the country is going. He argues we’re experiencing a “Time of Consolidation” during which media power will grind down “rural White Americans” and give them a new identity free of “Confederacy-style white supremacy.” America will “reaffirm our identity as a crusading racially egalitarian nation (even though we will carry out many policies that violate that identity).”
Segregation is back, but it’s woke, so it’s ok.

Feminists don’t get credit either – if they’re white.
White people who say it’s divisive to talk about how white people consistently vote to uphold white supremacy are the worst. It’s violence not to talk about it. If we are to ever get anywhere in this country .. admitting that simple truth is the basic first step ffs.

What a grim tweet. You can’t let the trauma of women of colour exist without trying to somehow centre white women in it. For a bigoted agenda no less. Give it a damn rest. https://t.co/ih4H5Ezg17

That final author was a contributor to The Good Immigrant, a compilation of essays that succeeded in making me think there isn’t a single one.
#AmericanTaliban, as an insult to Christians, was trending on Twitter yesterday. Wajahat Ali was upset because it was unflattering to Islam.
It's White Christian Supremacy. It'll further radicalize and weaponize and they won't stop until they achieve minority rule. Some want a theocracy, others just power in the hands of "White Christian men" through a sham democracy.

Sure for sake of analysis I agree but call them by their name.

I can’t wait for thousands of Afghans we “rescued” from the Taliban to start calling us racists after a few months.
“American Taliban” was also trending because the Supreme Court did not throw out abortion restrictions in Texas.
“US officials” are apparently worried that “White supremacists” are taking inspiration from the Taliban.
As the United States-backed government in Afghanistan fell to the Taliban and US troops raced to leave the country, White supremacists and anti-government extremists have expressed admiration for what the Taliban accomplished https://t.co/G6s76A1vyz

Incredibly, the conclusion is that these white supremacists might attack the Afghans that the federal government is shipping in. This is just a few days after Imran Ali Rasheed killed a Lyft driver and shot at police. Investigators think he may have been inspired by a foreign terrorist organization, and I don’t think it was pro-white.
In closing, here’s an academic who suggests we consider the “castration of whiteness.”
Professor of Psychology at Duquesne University Derek Hook, defends the quote “white people should commit suicide as an ethical act” as an “opportunity” to “castrate whiteness”.
