Buffalo shooting leads to controversial tweets regarding the Great Replacement theory

On Saturday May 14th 2022 a mass shooting occurred in a buffalo grocery store and has since been named the Buffalo mass shooting. 


The police believe the suspect shot the victims, because of their race (Black Americans) and they also believe that it was inspired by the great replacement theory.


Since then a funeral has been held for the 10 black victims shot on May 28th 2022 which the Vice President Kamala Harris attended with her husband saying “I cannot even begin to express our collective pain as a nation for what you are feeling in such an extreme way — to not only lose someone that you love, but through an act of extreme violence and hate”.


 In light of the mass shooting Elise Stefanik has made comments related to the great replacement theory. “Democrats desperately want wide open borders and mass amnesty for illegals allowing them to vote,” Stefanik wrote on May 16th 2022. 


She believes democrats are trying to bring more immigrants into the country to gain more votes, what she is saying is widely known as the great replacement theory which has caused some controversy, Stefanik later said that she’s “never made a racist comment”.
