He was specifically speaking about how the democratic party wants free thinkers who are on elected or leadership positions replaced with people like you.
What is ‘Great Replacement Theory?’ Tucker Carlson, Elise Stefanik scrutinized after Buffalo shooting
https://www.syracuse.com/state/2022/05/ ... oting.html
NEW YORK (AP) — A racist ideology seeping from the Internet’s fringes into the mainstream is being investigated as a motivating factor in the Tops supermarket shooting that killed 10 people in Buffalo, New York. Most of the victims were Black.
Simply put, it says there’s a conspiracy afoot to diminish the influence of white people.
Believers say this goal is being achieved both through immigration of nonwhite people into societies that have largely been dominated by white people, as well as through simple demographics, with white people having lower birth rates than others.
The theory’s more racist adherents believe Jews are behind the so-called replacement conspiracy. When white supremacists marched in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017, their chants included “you will not replace us” and “Jews will not replace us.”
A more mainstream view in the U.S. suggests Democrats are encouraging immigration from Latin America so more like-minded potential voters replace “traditional” Americans, said Mark Pitcavage, senior research fellow at the Anti-Defamation League Center on Extremism.
In a poll released last week, The Associated Press and the NORC Center for Public Affairs Research found that about 1 in 3 Americans believe an effort is underway to replace U.S.-born Americans with immigrants for electoral gain.
In particular, Tucker Carlson, Fox News’ most popular personality, has pushed false but more politically palatable views that are seen as sympathetic by some white people who are concerned about a loss of power.
“I know that the left and all the gatekeepers on Twitter become literally hysterical if you use the term ‘replacement,’ if you suggest the Democratic Party is trying to replace the current electorate, the voters now casting ballots, with new people, more obedient voters from the Third World,” he said on his show last year. “But they become hysterical because that’s what’s happening, actually, let’s just say it. That’s true.”
A study of five years’ worth of Carlson’s show by The New York Times found 400 instances where he talked about Democratic politicians and others seeking to force demographic change through immigration.
Pitcavage said he’s concerned about the message Carlson and some who agree with him are sending. “It actually introduces the Great Replacement Theory to a conservative audience in an easier-to-swallow pill,” he said.
Carlson is claiming Democrats want to bring in more people from "the Third World" (quote) in order to replace white voters in the U.S., and that is, basically, the replacement theory. Those are his own words.
BTW, "Third World" people (I assume he mostly means Mexicans, maybe some Central Americans) don't all automatically vote Democratic, he seems to be claiming people from other parts of the world are somehow dumber and easier to control and this is why they are being 'imported,' and not wanting to build a useless Wall or supporting comprehensive immigration reform doesn't mean you have some "plan" to bring more of them into the country to "replace" its existing voters.
If 1 in 3 voters accept this belief, it is not a small minuscule group of people.
