Tucker Carlson favored Douglas Macgregor over ‘Stone Age’ Indigenous peoples, South Asian immigrants, ‘rootless cosmopolitans’, and more
Macgregor regularly accuses George Soros, a progressive businessman and philanthropist (and Media Matters donor) who is a regular target of anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, of various wrongdoings in the United States and abroad.
Macgregor alleged that “attorneys general who are Soros-backed individuals” are “committed to essentially condoning large-scale criminality” as part of an effort “to fundamentally destroy what remains of the United States of America – its institutions, its national identity, its history, its culture” during an interview in September 2021.
He claimed that “major donors like Mr. Soros were involved” in organizing and funding caravans of Latin American migrants heading to the United States later in the same interview.
Macgregor also claimed that Soros financially supports migrant caravans and therefore bears some “responsibility for the massive criminality flowing into the United States from Mexico” during a 2019 Fox appearance, as Media Matters previously reported. documented.
Macgregor also accused Soros of using Ukraine as an “advanced platform” to target Russia and treating Ukrainians like “cannon fodder”, and described him as “probably the shadow adviser to the President Biden’s National Security” during a recent podcast interview with Fox host Laura Ingraham. .
Macgregor: Democrats may have stolen 2020 election
Macgregor falsely suggested after the 2020 election that he may have been rigged, echoing Trump’s Big Lie.
“As we know, we didn’t win the election – at least President Trump wasn’t re-inducted, let’s put it that way,” he said in a September 2021 YouTube interview. .
Macgregor developed this bogus conspiracy theory that Democrats are using voter fraud to steal the election at an event the following month.
“We haven’t had clear and fair elections in Philadelphia since maybe 1950,” he said. “You know the joke, everyone in Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, Los Angeles votes whether they’re dead or not, and unfortunately there’s a lot of truth in that. In many states, where the left controls the polls, they will bring in a lot of illegals.
Similarly, Macgregor often invokes the white nationalist “great replacement” conspiracy theory – also favored by Carlson and several of his colleagues – to argue that Democrats are trying to replace the American population with more docile non-white immigrants for political gain. .
He explained in a May 2021 interview that the Democrats aim to “blue the electorate…artificially” in order to “establish a permanent government dominated by the left, by the people we’re talking about, who are globalists, internationalists, Marxists, what’s really the discussion, you do it by creating an electorate that couldn’t reliably vote for you, and you do it by dividing the electorate, dividing the country, creating these categories, destroying any sense of social cohesion and unity.”
