Alice Stefnik Denies Promoting ‘Great Replacement’, But Amps Up Rhetoric Anyway

Rape. Alice Stefnik (R.N.Y.) tried it both ways on Monday, first promoting the “great substitution” theory that led to the alleged “racially motivated” mass shooting in Buffalo, New York, over the weekend. inspired. , then a short time later by intensifying anti-immigrant rhetoric.

The lawmaker’s recent Facebook ads have pointed to a far-right conspiracy theory that claims white people are being deliberately replaced by minorities and immigrants as part of a “permanent election rebellion” by Democrats.

The ads prompted Stefnick’s hometown newspaper, the Times Union of Albany, on Friday to condemn his “hateful rhetoric,” a day before 10 people were killed by a teenage shooter, leaving a 180-page manifesto. which claimed that white Americans were in danger of being replaced by the people. Colored by immigration, interracial marriage and eventually violence.

The post included a quote from her senior adviser, Alex deGrasse, who claimed that she “never advocated a racist position or made any racist statement.”
