Its “war on woke” acts instead to legitimise and amplify views and opinions that are radicalising an extremist right. Carlson has been criticised for promoting the right-wing conspiracy trope “Great Replacement Theory” which argues that elites want to “replace” white Americans — “legacy Americans”, Carlson calls them — with sometimes Jewish, sometimes non-white migrants. Carlson, he said, wasn’t talking about white replacement. Like US Republicans who have picked up the Fox version of the theory, Carlson has been eager to stress that it’s not about race, saying the nation should work toward a “colour-blind meritocracy”. Critics aren’t having it, recognising the danger that a powerful voice like Fox has in amplifying racism.

MSNBC anchor Katy Tur claimed on Tuesday that there is a “tamer version” of “white nationalism” that is “now pretty mainstream in the Republican Party.”Interviewing University of Buffalo official Henry Lewis Taylor Jr., who is Black, on Katy Tur Reports, Tur asked for his reaction to President Joe Biden visiting Buffalo on Tuesday, just days after a shooting on Saturday at the Tops Friendly Markets, where Payton Gendron allegedly killed 10 people and wounded three others. “I wonder what you thought of President [Joe] Biden today, knowing that in some respects his hands are tied on the issue, at least of guns. There’s not enough support in Congress for gun legislation. Republicans are not widely in favor of it, so it can’t pass,” said Tur. The president labeled the shooting as domestic terrorism.

London (CNN Business) Europe can't make up its mind on how to pay for Russia natural gas imports that continue to fuel homes, businesses and power stations. The confusion centers on the logistics of the payments themselves. Several European gas buyers have been preparing to work around the Kremlin's demand that gas bills be paid in rubles, rather than the euros or dollars stipulated in contracts. According to Russia's new payment mechanism, buyers in "unfriendly" countries must open two accounts at Gazprombank — one in euros and the second in rubles, from which payments for the gas would be made. But on Tuesday, the European Commission said companies opening an account in Russia's Gazprombank to allow their payments to be converted into rubles would fall foul of EU sanctions.

The alleged gunman, 18-year-old Payton Gendron, cited the so-called “replacement theory” as a motive for the shootings.

Rep. Tony Gonzales (R-TX) spoke with Fox & Friends about the crisis at the southern border; Gonzales says, to fix the border, we need serious policy changes —and that starts with the White House. Gonzales says it’s “100% an open border” and says we need to keep Title 42 in place. “Title 42 has to stay in place. You know, over half of those expulsions were due to Title 42,” he said. And it’s dangerous.”More than 230,000 migrant encounters were logged at the southern border in April —a DHS record.
