After Scathing Letter Chuck Schumer Refuses To Debate Carlson

In response to the shooting in Buffalo Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer sent a scathing letter to Fox News.

“According to one measure by the New York Times, Fox’s top political pundit, Tucker Carlson, has spewed rhetoric that echoes replacement theory at least 400 hundred, 400 hundred times on his show since 2016. 400 times,” Schumer said during a speech on the Senate floor. “This is a poison that is being spread by one of the largest news organizations in our country.”

“The message is not always explicit, but we’ve all seen the pattern,” Schumer said. “Every time MAGA Republicans or pundits vilify wrongly immigrants and call them ‘invaders,’ every time they falsely claim that millions of undocumented people cast ballots in our elections, every time loud, bigoted voices bemoan the disintegration of a ‘classic America’ the subtext is clear,” Schumer said. “These hard-right MAGA Republicans argue that people of color in minority communities are somehow posing a threat, a threat to the American way of life.”

In his letter to Fox Schumer wrote that Fox News executives must “immediately cease the reckless amplification of the so-called ‘great replacement’ theory” on the network’s broadcasts.”

In response to the letter, Carlson invited Schumer on his show but the Senate Majority leader declined.
