Biden’s ‘great replacement’ speech

“Biden’s ‘great replacement’ speech,”—submitted to Monterey Herald, May 24, 2022—Not Published

The Herald editorial “The Evil that ‘great replacement’ has wrought” seems to want to kill the messenger. Tucker Carlson recently highlighted the un-American desire of left-wing elites to let millions of non-Americans cross our borders for partisan politics. He showed that Democratic Party leaders have been almost giddy about the prospect of replacing White Americans with foreign non-Americans.

Tucker played a clip of Joe Biden addressing racial replacement on C-SPAN in 2015, declaring, “An unrelenting stream of immigration, non-stop, non-stop. Folks like me who were Caucasian, of European descent for the first time in 2017 will be in an absolute minority in the United States of America, absolute minority. Fewer than 50% of the people in America from then and on will be White European stock. That’s not a bad thing. That’s as a source of our strength.”

Tucker and others do worry about millions of unknown and unvetted foreigners pouring across our borders without much knowledge of our traditions of freedom, classical liberalism, pluralism, and way of life. It is not about race. Is about the dilemma of American citizens versus non-American unknowns. Tucker should be given an award for airing these issues.
