MEGYN KELLY (HOST): Today there's more blowback on whether you've been pushing for the “great replacement” theory. And you said that this is going to happen on your show last night. Sure enough, on cue, the ADL comes out and comes after you. And I wonder

TUCKER CARLSON (HOST, TUCKER CARLSON TONIGHT): The ADL? So I'm not on  well, fuck them.

KELLY: I know, I don't even want to be the one to tell you because you do a good job of avoiding it. 


CARLSON: I didn't even know that. I mean, what liars.

KELLY: They want you to be fired. They're pushing yet again for you to be fired, Tucker. It's  it's constant. 

CARLSON: The ADL was such a noble organization that had a very specific goal, which was to fight antisemitism. That's a virtuous goal. I think they were pretty successful over the years. Now it's operated by a guy who's just a Democratic Party  just an apparatchik of the Democratic Party. And I have to say, it's important for people with moral authority to stand up and say that, you know, because it's very corrosive for someone to take the residual moral weight of an organization that he inherited and use it for partisan ends, which is what they're doing.

So the “great replacement” theory is, in fact, not a theory. It's something that the Democrats brag about constantly up to and including the president. And in one sentence it's this: rather than convince the current population that our policies are working and they should vote for us as a result, we can't be bothered to do that. We're instead going to change the composition of the population and bring in people who will vote for us. So that's, there isn't actually inherently a racial component to it, and it's nothing to do with antisemitism.

KELLY: It's a political point you're trying to make.

CARLSON: Yeah I don't know what the ADL is doing weighing in on this. It has nothing  it has nothing to do  I mean that's just insane. And obviously, I'm not going to stop saying it because they're saying it.
