Vivek Ramaswamy talks ‘Great Replacement Theory’ – CNN’s Van Jones left ‘shaking’
That is one step away from Nazi propaganda coming out of his mouth ~Van Jones
CNN analyst Van Jones issued a stark warning on the prospects of Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy becoming a driving force in American politics for decades in the wake of the fourth GOP primary debate.
“[T]he smug, condescending way that he just spews this poison out, is very, very dangerous,” Jones said. “Because he won’t stop Trump, but he’s going to outlive Trump by about 50 years and you’re watching the rise of an American demagogue that is a very, very despicable person.”
“And… I was shaking listening to him talk because a lot of people don’t know that is one step away from Nazi propaganda coming out of his mouth,” Jones insisted.

Prompting Jones’s warning was Ramaswamy’s discussion of the “Great Replacement Theory,” which broadly refers to the notion that political elites, through immigration and social policies, are actively working to suppress the birthrates of native populations and import large swathes of foreigners to bolster the population, with proponents of the theory often asserting that the goal is to create a docile, servile labor caste to act as little more than a compliant tax base.
“The Great Replacement Theory is not some grand right-wing conspiracy theory, but a basic statement of the Democratic Party’s platform,” Vivek had said on the debate stage, as part of a broader listing of controversial ideas that intended to show he could stand up to government institutions and political donors.

Ramaswamy subsequently doubled down on the position, posting on X that “The ‘conspiracization’ of “The Great Replacement Theory” is the standard left-wing playbook: transparently advance a toxic policy, then label it a conspiracy theory when the other side contests the merits of it.”
“We need a real debate on whether intentionally facilitating mass illegal migration to change this country is good for America or not – because that’s exactly what’s happening. I think it’s bad, but if the left believes this is a good thing, they should make the case for it,” he added.
