MSNBC anchor Donny Deutsch said Democrats need to “scare the shit out of” voters over the replacement theory because the economy has stalled so badly.
Deutsch commented on “Morning Joe” on Wednesday in response to a question from Joe Scarborough.
“The question is: what is the best way to push back this hate? What’s the best way to roll back this conspiracy theory that’s based on a Jewish international banker — I mean, it’s so anti-Semitic — and of course they put George Soros in there and tried to make the country browner and blacker,” Scarborough claimed “What’s the best way for people to push back on this lie?”
“They’re taking this vile platform and making it Republicans’ own. I want to say it again, make it Republican’s own,” Deutsch replied.
“Any Republican politician, any Republican candidate, ask them about it; they can’t run away from it because it’s part of who they are, gross as it is. But make it Republican replacement theory, mainstream, because you have it to scare,” he continued.
“As Democrats, we don’t have the economy on our side. So you have to scare people — and a way to scare them by saying, ‘You know this replacement theory, it’s not just coming from some dark corner of the internet, this is the Republican platform,'” he said added.
“Make it theirs and the Democrats will flee this fistfight. I know he talked about it in the previous paragraph,” concluded Deutsch, “that the President didn’t want to name names. Call Tucker Carlson, call the politicians and make it their own, make it theirs, this is a Republican platform. It’s the racist Republican replacement theory.
The replacement conspiracy theory involves the claim that powerful leftists in the United States want to replace whites with minorities in order to align the demographics of the electorate with their political agenda. The theory’s logic is somewhat undermined by recent polls showing that Democrats are increasingly unpopular with Hispanics and blacks.
Deutsch made headlines in 2011 when he said he hoped there would be a moment like the fatal Kent State University shooting that would spur the leftist “Occupy Wall Street” movement.
