Oh Arturo, Prince of Irony.
The Republican Party’s fight against the teaching of Critical Race Theory (CRT) in schools is akin to neo-Nazis in Germany seeking to revise history and put an end to Holocaust education, according to Jason Stanley, a professor of philosophy at Yale University.
Appearing on MSNBC’s The Mehdi Hasan Show on Tuesday night, the professor blasted Republican opposition to Critical Race Theory.
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 professor agreed.
“Absolutely,” Stanley replied.
“What if Germany, what if AfD — the neo-fascist party in Germany that advocates ending Holocaust education — came to power and ended Holocaust education?” he asked, adding that, “We’d all be horrified; everyone in America would be horrified by that.”
Right on the money, except for one small little detail: one of those things is verifiable, well-documented historical truth. The other is…Critical Race Theory.
Furthering the comparison, the Yale professor claimed that both the GOP and German neo-Nazis share talking points.
“They say the same talking points there … ‘We don’t want Germans to feel guilty about our past; we want people to not feel guilty about things their ancestors did,’” he said of the groups.
Actually, I don’t really think people need to “feel guilty about things their ancestors did,” or be expected to; it’s quite enough for any human being to cope with the sins they themselves are guilty of, much less piling on things they didn’t even do. But proponents of CRT—and specifically those pimping the 1619 Project—takes the injustice a giant step further: they want us to feel guilty about things that never even happened.
He then referred to the fight against Critical Race Theory as an “American version” of a similar international strategy.
“This tactic is the American version of an international tactic,” he said.
“In other countries it’s gender ideology,” he added, “so in Germany they’re targeting Holocaust education, in Hungary [and] Brazil they’re targeting gender ideology [and] cultural Marxism, and it’s the same strategy.”
Okay, listen real hard and try to let this sink into that thick skull of yours this time, willya?
- Holocaust history: TRUE ✅
- Gender ideology, cultural Marxism, CRT, all the other PC shibboleths: COMPLETE AND UTTER HORSESHIT ❌
Getting it yet? I’m betting not, since you probably know as well as I do how blatantly false they all are already. They’re merely tools crafted and used solely for the purpose of advancing the nefarious agenda of sinister, lying shitlibs like yourself, via bludgeoning guiltless Whypeepo about the head and shoulders with them until we submit.
Stanley also made a comparison to Turkey’s Islamist and increasingly authoritarian president, before associating criticism of the theory with autocracy.
Again, I must note the attendant irony.
In case anyone was wondering about where I might’ve swiped this post’s opening quip from, here t’is.
Brett Butler was pretty damned funny before she went off the rails completely and became a bitter, psychotic lush. Shame, that.
