We are under the cloud of another mass shooting, or two, again. David Waldman and Greg Dworkin discuss the one Fox News will need a while to refocus upon, as it is based on the heart of their business model. The murders are Tucker Carlson’s fault, and each one pays his salary. Tucker’s long been pushing the “great replacement theory”, not only the shooter’s raison d'être, but pretty much the GQP platform for some time. Replacement theory is nothing new, but neofascist muscle is now taking it to new places in brotherhood with Christian nationalism.
