Joe Biden visited Buffalo, New York on Tuesday to meet with families of the victims from a grocery store massacre over the weekend that left 10 dead. While answering questions from reporters, Biden blamed Fox News host Tucker Carlson for the massacre, saying that he and others who discuss “replacement theory” are responsible.
During his statement, President Biden forcefully condemned the attack as “domestic terrorism.” Critics have frequently pointed out that the Biden Administration only uses this label to describe white or right-leaning attackers. Recent racially motivated attacks in Waukesha and New York City at the hands of black nationalists received no such designation.
When asked by reporters if Fox News host Tucker Carlson was to blame for the killings, Biden said yes. “I believe anybody who echoes replacement theory is to blame – not for this particular crime – but it’s for no purpose, no purpose except profit and/or political benefit. And it’s wrong.”

Leftist pundits and politicians have gleefully pointed to America’s declining White population as a positive on numerous occasions, as they believe this will help them win elections. When figures on the right point out that the White population is declining, and that Democrats celebrate this fact, the same leftists will label it as “great replacement conspiracy” talk, which is racist and must be suppressed.
Tucker Carlson has become a common target of leftist outrage over White people noticing this simple fact as he is one of the only figures on cable news who will discuss it. A number of liberal outlets, including The Washington Post, The New York Times and The Atlantic have run pieces that accuse Carlson of inciting the killer in the days following the fact. Rolling Stone dubbed the killer a “mainstream Republican” even though he described himself as “mild authoritarian left-wing” in his manifesto.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) even sent a letter to Fox News calling on the network to remove Carlson due to his dissemination of “racist and anti-semitic conspiracy theories.” The longtime Senator later declined an opportunity to debate on Tucker Carlson Tonight.
