On YouTube, Turning Point USA President Charlie Kirk defended Fox host Tucker Carlson’s endorsement of the white nationalist “great replacement” conspiracy theory.
Last week, Carlson had said on Fox that a wave of “Third World” invaders are immigrating to America “to replace the current electorate” and “dilute the political power of the people who live there.”
During the April 13 edition of The Charlie Kirk Show, Kirk played the video of Carlson explaining the white “replacement” theory and purported that “nothing he said there is controversial. It's factual and it's true.”
Later in the show, Kirk professed that Carlson made him “so proud” and that he was “proud to cheer him on last evening because Tucker doubled and tripled down” on the conspiracy theory two nights in a row.
According to Media Matters' internal database, which includes weekday Fox programming from 6 a.m. to midnight, Kirk has so far appeared on Fox News 17 times in 2021.
