More white supremacist adoration for Tucker Carlson

Media Matters reports:

Fox News host Tucker Carlson is drawing praise from white nationalist outlets for mainstreaming their “great replacement” conspiracy theory after a white supremacist allegedly killed 10 people in Buffalo, New York, in a massacre apparently inspired by it. The Fox star has drawn compliments from the notorious former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke and been toasted by racist outlets like VDare and American Renaissance for bringing their message to his millions of viewers.
Duke highlighted Carlson’s “incredible” May 17 monologue, in which the Fox host again promoted the “great replacement” conspiracy theory, on his radio show the following day. The former Klansman – who has previously suggested that Carlson is using his own talking points in discussing “the replacement of legacy Americans” – went on to explain that Carlson puts forward the same ideas as white supremacists like him but “can’t really say it” using the same words.

Just a few short years ago Duke would have been scurrying around in the shadows. Now he's got a friend at Fox, and plenty of friends in the GOP who want voters aligned with Duke's verbiage of white replacement theory to vote for them.

There's always a chance Tucker is an actual white supremacist... but I wonder if his adoption of language similar to traditional white supremacist replacement theory was purposeful. I say that because he waxes conspiratorial about ... everything... anymore.

(And purposeful replacement is pretty dang conspiratorial)

Come on now, it is somewhat newsworthy he gave Tucker an atta boy, but that crazy SOB has never scurried around in the shadows.
