From The New York Times:

His writings were also riddled with racist, anti-immigrant views arguing that white Americans are at risk of being replaced by people of color, a common trope on the far-right known as the “great replacement” theory.
I can already guess what Tucker Carlson might say about it, if he dares to say anything about it: What this young man did was wrong, &c. And I never encouraged anyone to, &c. I condemn in the strongest possible terms, &c. But what happened in Buffalo should not make us close our eyes to, &c.

I fear that’s how it will go.

[The Times reports that the killer learned about “replacement theory” from 4chan.]
