Michigan lawmaker Rep. Josh Schriver who represents Michigan’s 66th House District reposted a tweet on social media platform X (formally Twitter) about 'the great replacement'.

What Is The Great Replacement Conspiracy Theory?

The Great Replacement, also known as the replacement theory, is a white nationalist far-right conspiracy theory that alleges a deliberate effort to replace the white population in the United States and Western European countries with non-white immigrants, primarily from Muslim, African, and Middle Eastern countries.

The theory claims that this replacement is being orchestrated by left-leaning domestic or international elites, sometimes including Jewish co-conspirators, and is facilitated by non-white demographic growth and lower birth rates among white Europeans.

The theory has been widely discredited by mainstream scholars as rooted in a misunderstanding of demographic statistics and premised upon a racist worldview.
