Replacement theory is really important to understand as it is one of the central pillars of White Nationalism. Unfortunately, this @nytimes piece by @NellieBowles fails to identify a central factor of replacement theory: who is responsible. THREAD

In essence, replacement theory holds that there is a conspiracy to replace the White populations of "White" countries with non-Whites. It is part of a larger category of racist conspiracy theory known as "White Genocide."
The New Zealand mosque killer was an adherent of White Nationalist Replacement Theory.

The Pittsburgh synagogue killer was motivated by replacement theory.

Replacement theory was at the center of the Charlottesville rally where Nazis chanted "you will not replace us."
Here is a recently found flyer promoting replacement theory. The question at the center asks "who is behind it?" @NellieBowles's piece fails to say. But there is no confusion on this question among White Nationalists: it's the Jews.
Note that population replacement and Muslim mass immigration is but one weapon purportedly being used against the White race. Others include communism, degeneracy, transgender and sexualized children, internet regulation and political correctness, etc.
The notion that Jews are behind every perceived problem, real or imagined, is a common belief among White Nationalists. For example, here is National Socialist (Nazi) Movement leader Jeff Schoep:
Or as the Daily Stormer put it:
Because "Jews function for today’s White nationalists as they often have for antisemites through the centuries: as the demons stirring an otherwise changing and heterogeneous pot of lesser evils." - @BulldogShadow
Here is another example of population replacement, a meme popular in White nationalist forums. The image is self-explanatory: Islam is being used as a weapon against White/European people. But, again, look who wields this "weapon": the Jews.
Part of why replacement theory is so dangerous is it enjoys adherents w/ positions of power & moral authority, and w/ large national platforms. Most prominently, Trump who said that it is George Soros is behind the migrant caravan or "invaders." Again, note the culprit? A Jew.
So yes, it’s a racist, sexist (more on White Supremacy & misogyny here: adl.org/resources/repo…) doctrine. But the animating force behind this doctrine is an antisemitic conspiracy theory about a purported “White genocide” being carried out by Jews.
Ignoring or failing to recognize the central role of antisemitism in replacement theory and White Nationalist ideology more broadly undermines our ability to fight it.
The image appears not to have come through. Here it is. Originally a Ben Garrison cartoon which has been doctored with the happy merchant character.
Or, as @BulldogShadow puts it "To recognize that antisemitism is not a sideshow to racism within White nationalist thought allows us to identify the fuel that White nationalist ideology uses to power its anti-Black racism, its contempt for other POC and its xenophobia, etc.
.@BulldogShadow's piece on the role of antisemitism in White Nationalist ideology is absolutely essential reading: politicalresearch.org/2017/06/29/ski…
Never forget that for White Nationalists who target Muslims, behind the alleged Muslim threat, there is a Jewish hand. This was among the final messages shared by Pittsburgh killer:
They didn't just chant "you will not replace us" - they chanted "Jews will not replace us." This isn't incidental.
