Jesse Watters: Black people are furious Dems are replacing them with migrants to gain a new loyal base

Up to 2,000 migrants in Chicago will be housed in a Brighton Park complex that broke ground this week, and, according to Fox News’s Jesse Watters, black residents are feeling like “they’re being replaced.”

Mayor Brandon Johnson blamed “right-wing extremism” for the backlash to the project.

“It’s the same Republican right-wing extremism that stormed the capital; it’s the same right-wing extremism that refuses to accept the results of the civil war,” he stated. “It’s raggedy, it’s disrespectful, it’s mean-spirited.”

Not so, Watters said on Wednesday’s episode of “The Five.”

“I don’t understand why he’s saying that Whites or conservatives are mad at him,” the co-host said. “Blacks are mad at the Black mayor because he’s turned the Southside of Chicago into Latin America.”

“No one can even move in that neck of the woods because they’re just flooded with migrants,” Watters continued. “And, you have to understand, the Black community in Chicago is feeling that they’re being replaced. And they have said this. They’ve said that they’re Americans, and you’re importing a population there, and they’re crowding them out of schools, they’re crowding them out of soccer fields, out of basketball courts, out of jobs.”

It’s an issue, he noted, that is affecting more than just the Windy City.

“[I]f you look at the explosion in the Hispanic population in this country, it’s just astronomical,” Watters stated. “They’ve doubled over the last couple decades – used to be 5% of the population. Hispanics now are 20% of the population. The Hispanic population’s doubling. The Black population in 2060 – supposed to be flat.”

The “explosion,” Watters said, is, in part, thanks to the migrants’ willingness to have babies. He predicted it will mark a major shift in “political power.”

“They are having a lot of children,” he explained. “They are coming to this country. They’re going to replace the political power of the Black community within the Democratic Party.”

As for Mayor Johnson, Watters said that he’s “not trying to fix anything.”

“He’s just pointing fingers,” the “Primetime” host said. “He’s not progressing… There’s been no progress in Chicago.”

“He’s going to fail,” Watters said, “just like all these other progressive mayors are failing, and then he’s just going to end up at Harvard, because that’s what they do.”

For years now, the mere mention of a Democratic “Great Replacement” agenda has been met with triggered claims of racism, and Watters’ remarks were no exception.

Right on cue, former NBCUniversal exec Mike Sington clutched his pearls and claimed, “The bigotry is breathtaking.”

But those who are seizing upon the opportunity to slam Watters as a bigot are ignoring the protests of Black Chicagoans who, earlier this month, issued a list of angry demands to the City Council and City Hall calling for an end to the “sanctuary city” policies.

“We are fed up with you for not taking the lead to stop the buses,” one angry Black protester stated at a rally on Chicago’s South Side. “We are fed up with you for not demanding of Brandon Johnson to remove illegal immigrants from our community, and we’re also here to say we are denouncing Alderman William Hall and Lamont Robinson for going to the border to look into the eyes of illegal immigrants but has failed to look into the eyes of homeless Black men women and children and other citizens of Chicago.”
