The Anti-Defamation League wants Fox News to fire Tucker Carlson.

WaPo reports in "ADL demands Fox News fire Tucker Carlson over anti-Semitic trope: ‘This has deadly significance.'"

Here's the exact quote from Carlson (which includes his awareness that what he is saying is fuel to his would-be cancelers):

“Now, I know that the left and all the little gatekeepers on Twitter become literally hysterical if you use the term ‘replacement,’ if you suggest that 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,” Carlson said. “But they become hysterical because that’s what’s happening actually. Let’s just say it: That’s true.” 
Carlson then referenced the racist claim by name, dismissing it as the motivation for his remarks. 
“Everyone wants to make a racial issue out of it. Oh, you know, the white replacement theory? No, no, no,” he said. “I have less political power because they are importing a brand new electorate. Why should I sit back and take that?” 
The “great replacement theory” was popularized in 2012 by French writer Renaud Camus, who warned that Western countries face an impending White genocide. The phrase has evolved into a bogus notion that a cabal of elite Jews are plotting to replace White populations with immigrants, Muslims and people of color, according to the ADL.

Of course, Carlson was denying that he meant to espouse the "replacement theory." He said he wanted to use the word "replacement" without the extra baggage and to criticize his antagonists for getting emotional over that word. He knew what he was doing, and presumably he loves the media attention he engineered. He's in a creepy love embrace with liberal media. Maybe I should just look away. I would look away, but I just want to nail this down to keep track of it.

FROM THE EMAIL: Several readers are attacking the Anti-Defamation League, saying that it's not what it used to be. For example, one reader says:

The ADL is a D operation and a long standing embarrassment to Jews.... It is a D organization wearing the clothes of a former Jewish group. It is a defamation to Jews, and it is a terrible embarrassment. I don't think for a second ADL actually thinks, Carlson, talking about how black voter dilution is a product of mass immigration, was inviting harm to Jews or anyone else. It is insulting. Insulting that they are posing as if Jews, for a second, think that speaking out against diluting the black vote through mass immigration is hurting Jews, It's a farce they are playing at the expense of diaspora Jews.
