History Under Siege: The GOP, Critical Race Theory, and the Struggle against White Supremacy
by Eric J. Weiner
As states move to criminalize and/or censor educators who frame American history from the perspective of Critical Race Theory, it's important to remember what initially fueled these efforts. Over the course of two days in September 2019, the Trump administration quietly formalized its commitment to the ideology of White supremacy within the context of schooling and public education. Now weaponized at the state level, the radical conservative challenge to CRT must be read as a White Nationalist Strategy replacing the GOP's more traditional and limited Southern Strategy to codify the struggle against systems, formations, and structures of White supremacy as anti-American. The GOP's White Nationalist Strategy at the educational level is, at its core, an attack on historical memory. It supports the schooling of White supremacist ideologies within our public schools by policing curriculum and pedagogies that challenge the culture and ideology of White supremacy, the discourse of White privilege, and, more generally, teach against the grain of the official historical record.
