Replacement theory is the belief that a large influx of immigrants to a country will dilute the vote of the native electorate. Yet on The View this week, co-host Whoopi Goldberg flaunted her apparent ignorance as she’s repeatedly suggested the theory is about people being abducted and literally replaced by other people a la Invasion of the Body Snatchers. She’s even shouted demands to see proof that people have had themselves or their families physically replaced.
As NewsBusters research analyst Bill D’agostino reported, Democrats have viewed immigration policy as a means to achieve their policy agenda and it’s something we know liberals and the media have been vocal in touting for years. But it has since found its way to the Ministry of Truth for deletion.
But as the rest of the cast of The View were simply trying to paint the theory as a racist conspiracy theory, Goldberg didn’t seem to understand what was being discussed. On Monday, as they were going to a commercial break, she scoffed: “well, if it was that easy, wouldn’t your friends have disappeared?” “Think about it,” she requested.
