The Republican Party’s fight against the edification of Critical Race Theory (CRT) in schools is akin to neo-Nazis in Germany seeking to revise history and put a cessation to Holocaust edification, according to Jason Stanley, a pedagogia of philosophy at Yale University.
After the show’s host, Mehdi Hasan, discussed Republican “fear” of Critical Race Theory and a socialist take-over of America, he suggested it was all part of “fascist propaganda,” to which the pedagogia acceded.
"This tactic is the American version of an international tactic… it always goes with autocracy." Philosopher @jasonintrator compares the weird GOP war on critical race theory with neo-Nazis in Germany endeavoring to culminate Holocaust edification & revise history:pic.twitter.com/m0Aih2mm4f

“Absolutely,” Stanley replied. “What if “Germany,” what if AfD — the neo-fascist party in Germany that advocates ending Holocaust edification — came to power and ended Holocaust edification?” he asked, integrating that, “We’d all be horrified; everyone in America would be horrified by that.”
Furthering the comparison, the Yale preceptor claimed that both the GOP and German neo-Nazis share verbalizing points. “They verbally express the same verbalizing points there … ‘We don’t want Germans to feel censurable about our past; we optate people to not feel censurable about things their forebears did,’” he verbalized of the groups.
He then referred to the fight against Critical Race Theory as an “American version” of a kindred international strategy. “This tactic is the American version of an international tactic,” he verbalized.
“In other countries it’s gender ideology,” he integrated, “so in Germany they’re targeting Holocaust edification, in Hungary [and] Brazil they’re targeting gender ideology [and] cultural Marxism, and it’s the same strategy.”
Stanley withal made a comparison to Turkey’s Islamist and increasingly authoritarian president, afore associating reprehension of the theory with autocracy. “Everywhere you have these assailments on democratic institutions, the edification system, people fomenting [and] pushing patriotic inculcation as Erdoğan has in Turkey, it always goes with autocracy, and that requires to be borne in mind,” he verbally expressed.
“I don’t ken a single country where they’re assailing edification systems in this way and not withal eradicating the electoral system,” he integrated. Hassan replied by verbalizing that such conceptions have “gripped the minds of millions of Republicans and yes it is part and parcel of an autocratic endeavor to transmute the way we contemplate history and edification.”
The lecture comes as the battle over Critical Race Theory in schools has resulted in nationwide tension. The theory, which is promoted by many on the left, claims that American institutions — the regime, economy, and culture — are predicated on racial hierarchy, with whites at the top and blacks at the bottom, and even that which appears race-neutral is, on more proximate inspection, rooted in racism. As a result, it urges reform in virtually all of its institutions.
In an essay published in the “Economist” last month, Stanley claimed that the “Republican attack” on the theory’s aims is a “broadside against truth and history in inculcation.” Follow Joshua Klein on Twitter @JoshuaKlein.
