House Rep. Boebert (R) touts “replacement theory,” the white supremacist conspiracy theory increasingly behind mass shootings

In a video taken last September, House Rep. Lauren Boebert says the U.S. is undergoing “replacement theory,” the white supremacist ideology behind an 18-year old’s gun massacre of ten Black people at a grocery store in Buffalo, New York on Saturday, March 14, 2022.  Payton Gendron, the shooter, left behind a 180-page manifesto that showed he was fixated on the conspiracy theory that White people in the U.S. are being intentionally replaced — the same idea Boebert spouts in this video.

Replacement theory is an unfounded far right racist conspiracy theory (video) that claims a deliberate plot exists, usually blamed on Jews, to replace all of the white people in America with black and brown immigrants who are dirty, dangerous, carry disease, can’t be trusted and who are going to take away your job, use up your resources and destroy what you have. Replacement ideology has been around for decades, but has mostly been relegated to the fringes of society, until now.  Recently, far-right Republicans and Fox News commentators have been pushing it into the mainstream. It usually targets the immigrants who have arrived in the country most recently.

NBC News reports the Buffalo shooter’s manifesto “includes dozens of pages of antisemitic and racist memes, repeatedly citing the racist ‘great replacement’ conspiracy theory frequently pushed by white supremacists.”

The ideology has been behind many recent racially-motivated mass shootings across the U.S. Fox News host Tucker Carlson also relentlessly promotes replacement theory on his show. In his version, he attributes the “great replacement” conspiracy to liberals and Democrats, while similarly ginning up fear and anger at black and brown immigrants.
