Chuck Schumer is blaming the recent shooting in Buffalo on FOX News, claiming that the shooter was inspired by reports on replacement theory, the idea that political elites are trying to replace the American electorate.
He sent a nasty letter to that effect to FOX News, so Tucker invited him to come on the air to discuss it but Schumer was too much of a coward to appear on the show.
Chuck Schumer Sends Letter To Rupert Murdoch Calling For End To Amplification Of “Great Replacement Theory”
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer called on Rupert Murdoch and other top executives of Fox Corp. and Fox News to stop the “reckless amplification” of the “great replacement theory” by some of the news channel’s hosts.
The letter came following the deadly shooting rampage in Buffalo, NY, over the weekend, in which 10 people were killed. The alleged shooter had, according to a manifesto posted online, been an adherent of the “replacement theory,” or the belief that elites are trying to replace native-born Americans with non-white immigrants for political gain.
“For years, these types of beliefs have existed at the fringes of American life,” Schumer wrote in the letter. “However, this pernicious theory, which has no basis in fact, has been injected into the mainstream thanks in large part to a dangerous level of amplification by your network and its anchors.”
Schumer did not mention Tucker Carlson in the text of the letter, but cc’d him. On Monday, Schumer directly called out Carlson in a speech on the Senate floor, citing a New York Times series that found that the Fox host “spewed rhetoric that echoes replacement theory at least 400 times on his show since 2016.”
Maybe one of the reasons Tucker has mentioned this on his show is because Democrats and liberals in media talk about it constantly.
