What America Taught the Nazis

In the 1930s, the Germans were fascinated by the global leader in codified racism—the United States.

Pushing back against scholarship that downplays the impact in Nazi Germany of the U.S. model of legal racism, Whitman marshals an array of evidence to support the likelihood “that the Nuremberg Laws themselves reflect direct American influence.” As race law’s global leader, Whitman stresses, America provided the most obvious point of reference for the September 1933 Preußische Denkschrift, the Prussian Memorandum, written by a legal team that included Roland Freisler, soon to emerge as the remarkably cruel president of the Nazi People’s Court. American precedents also informed other crucial Nazi texts, including the National Socialist Handbook for Law and Legislation of 1934–35, edited by the future governor-general of Poland, Hans Frank, who was later hung at Nuremberg. A pivotal essay in that volume, Herbert Kier’s recommendations for race legislation, devoted a quarter of its pages to U.S. legislation—which went beyond segregation to include rules governing American Indians, citizenship criteria for Filipinos and Puerto Ricans as well as African Americans, immigration regulations, and prohibitions against miscegenation in some 30 states. No other country, not even South Africa, possessed a comparably developed set of relevant laws.

Especially significant were the writings of the German lawyer Heinrich Krieger, “the single most important figure in the Nazi assimilation of American race law,” who spent the 1933–34 academic year in Fayetteville as an exchange student at the University of Arkansas School of Law. Seeking to deploy historical and legal knowledge in the service of Aryan racial purity, Krieger studied a range of overseas race regimes, including contemporary South Africa, but discovered his foundation in American law. His deeply researched writings about the United States began with articles in 1934, some concerning American Indians and others pursuing an overarching assessment of U.S. race legislation—each a precursor to his landmark 1936 book, Das Rassenrecht in den Vereingten Staaten (“Race Law in the United States”).

Whitman’s “smoking gun” is the transcript of a June 5, 1934, conference of leading German lawyers gathered to exchange ideas about how best to operationalize a racist regime. The record reflects how the most extreme among them, who relied on Krieger’s synoptic scholarship, were especially drawn to American legal codes based on white supremacy. The main conceptual idea was Freisler’s. Race, he argued, is a political construction. In both America and Germany, the importance and meaning of race for the most part had been determined less by scientific realities or social conventions than by political decisions enshrined in law.

but even indisputable evidence of the Germans’ intense interest in American models doesn’t clinch a formative role for U.S. racial law, as Whitman himself is careful to acknowledge. After all, Nazism’s intellectual and political leaders may well have utilized American examples merely to make more legitimate the grotesque designs they already planned to pursue. In any case, answering the question of cross-national influence is ultimately less important than Whitman’s other goal, which is to examine the status of racial hierarchy in the United States through Nazi eyes. “What the history presented in this book demands that we confront,” he writes, “are questions not about the genesis of Nazism, but about the character of America.”

His disturbing report thus takes its place within the larger history of the United States as a polity founded on principles of human equality, Enlightenment reason, and constitutional limits on state power, yet molded by the prodigious evil and long-term consequences of chattel slavery based on race. To read Hitler’s American Model is to be forced to engage with the stubborn fact that during the 1933–45 period of the Third Reich, roughly half of the Democratic Party’s members in Congress represented Jim Crow states, and neither major party sought to curtail the race laws so admired by German lawyers and judges.

Overcoming Identity Politics Paralysis

Image

The history, through the eighties and nineties, of the use of the words identity politics is a really complicated one which is going to take another book to explain. But the term saw a real mainstream resurgence with the 2016 primaries, and I make a historical jump in order to show the instability of the term. That is: it was initially introduced as an emancipatory, radical term, but recently, in a lot of the discourse around the Hillary Clinton campaign and the opposition to the Bernie Sanders campaign, the term was used as a way to specifically undermine any challenge to the hegemonic ideas of the mainstream of the Democratic Party. In this context, it became totally uprooted from its origins.

We could identify two different ways that people meant the term. One would be that it’s anything that has to do with race or gender, and is either seen as in opposition to class or as something that has to be added to class. The other is what we’ve already been discussing, the idea that your politics emerge from the foundation of your identity. Every time the term was used in the mainstream media, in thinkpieces and so on, it seemed to take on a different meaning—sometimes different meanings within the same article! But neither of these meanings was resonant, obviously, with the specific meaning that the Comahee River Collective had in mind.

Since it’s become a floating term, now, it can used in a weaponized way to attack political adversaries. The fact that Clinton represented a continuation of a neoliberal and militarist legacy of not just the Obama years but also the preceding Bush years and the Bill Clinton years before that—that became suppressed. That was hidden underneath the discourse of identity politics and the equation of identity politics with some kind of civil rights agenda. So the 2016 primaries were the turning point in many respects, when a politics that had to do with opposing racism and sexism became separated from, and even opposed to, a politics that was about overcoming economic inequality. That’s not how it was conceived before.

...It’s extremely illuminating to understand whiteness as one of the primary forms of race, because that shows us exactly how constructed these categories are, how they simply the the expression of some individual’s characteristics. Different groups that in Europe were part of racial hierarchies—like the English and the Irish, or Germans and Poles—migrated to the United States and over a long process all became integrated into one entity called the “white race.” That’s what Theodore Allen called the “invention of the white race.”

That shows exactly how delusional the white supremacists and the alt-right are today when they talk about this category of whiteness. They are talking about a fictive construction: one that is real in the sense that it has real social effects, but has no basis in human physiology or even culture.

Often there’s a tendency to simply take what the right says and invert it, but this just accepts the basic category. To respond to what the alt-right is saying by accepting the category of white people and whiteness as though it’s a real thing ends up reinforcing the ideological structure that they are using to put forth a highly misleading rationalization for a very dangerous political agenda. We have to be able to question the racial ideology, the empty abstraction of race, and that applies to whiteness first and foremost.

Kevin MacDonald and the Elevation of Anti-Semitic Pseudoscience

From Undark: “Of course, there are many ideas — some with passionate followings — that don’t receive much attention in academic journals. These might include flat-earth theory, for example, or the belief in unicorns, or the theory that the federal government stages school shootings. To debate a theory like MacDonald’s is both to legitimize it and to tacitly accept some of its premises — namely, that there’s such a thing as a distinct, subtle ‘Jewish agenda’ or ‘Jewish psychology’ that exists in tension with white European society.

That idea, as Pinker, Tuchman, and others point out, is not radical or new. It’s perhaps the single most influential anti-Semitic concept of the past few centuries.

But that’s the real bind here — one that confronts not just scientists, but journalists and other citizens in an era of rising white nationalism. Are bad ideas permitted to flourish when we simply ignore them? Or is it the debate — the open back-and-forth and public rebuttals — that actually gives them oxygen and legitimacy?”

As His Trial Approaches, Christopher Cantwell Laughs Off Last Year’s Violence In Charlottesville

Image

The interview touched on a wide variety of topics, including Cantwell’s radicalization and last year’s rally in Charlottesville. In discussing how he gradually became red-pilled on race, Cantwell said he was influenced by videos on race and IQ by Stefan Molyneux as well as Charles Murray’s 1994 book The Bell Curve, which he read while he was in jail and which he intends to sell through his website.

“What you find out,” Cantwell explained, “is when you control for IQ, all these disparities of outcome with socioeconomic status and every other stupid ass excuse that they come up with for people goes away. And IQ is exactly what’s causing the problems in the black community, and it’s undeniable scientifically.”

Jett went on a tangent about Jean-Philippe Rushton, another academic racist, who was obsessed with the size of black men’s penises. (At a Toronto shopping mall Rushton paid customers to answer questions about their sexual habits, which is definitely a normal thing to do.) Jett explained to Cantwell and Hardmous that Rushton believed black people have “compressed brain[s]” and “crushed” neurons, resulting in lower IQs.

Proud Boys founder McInnes calls for "a big memorial for all the whites" and laments "all the whites in history who have suffered from Blacks"

Jesse Lee Peterson hosted Gavin McInnes to celebrate "white history month" and ask whether it was a "mistake to allow people of color into white countries"


From the July 18 edition of The Jesse Lee Peterson Show:

JESSE LEE PETERSON (HOST): Happy white history month.

GAVIN MCINNES: So that's the deal now, July is white history month?

PETERSON: Yes, I started it this year and it's the first time that white people have been appreciated in a long time and I figured that you know, we have so-called Black History Month, homosexual history month, women history month, Chinese history month, Mexican history month -- everything but white history month. And if it wasn't for white folks there would be no America and it's just time to realize that and start dealing with it.

MCINNES: Yeah there's a museum in Ottawa, Canada, in my hometown. It's called the Museum of Civilization and it's all about the people who built Canada.

PETERSON: Yes.

MCINNES: Which is probably 80 percent Scots. And they have everything but Scottish people there. They at one point they've rebuilt a Cambodian laundromat in Calgary. So it has these mannequins folding your laundry as an integral part of what built Canada, and then a bunch of Native American art, which you know was pre-Canada.

PETERSON: Yeah.

MCINNES: It's it's bizarre how much animosity there is towards white people in the Western world these days.

PETERSON: I know, it's amazing. So what do you think of white history -- July as white history month? And I picked July because as I've said over and over July just seems white, you know, you have the Fourth of July is in the air -- is everywhere, vacation time. It's like you worked all year, and now, July. It just feels white.

MCINNES: Yeah, you're right. I love it. And I think we should have a moment during white history month to talk about all the people who died. The 620,000 who died ending slavery in America --

PETERSON: Yeah.

MCINNES: -- all the Irish slaves who died, all the children of the Industrial Revolution who were forced to work in the coal mines -- we should have a big memorial for all the whites. And how about this? How about all the whites in history who have suffered from Blacks? Like when Hannibal and the elephants came up from Africa and took over Italy, or the Moors taking over Spain -- all the horrible oppression whites have suffered over the years.

PETERSON: Amazing. Why do you think there is an attack upon white people not just in America but Europe and other areas. Why are white people so hated but yet, these people want to come to their country and take over?

MCINNES: I would say it's racism against Blacks. This constantly insulting white people is actually the bigotry of low expectations and it's saying that Blacks, especially Black women, can't handle criticism. They're too fragile, they're not good enough, so we'll attack the patriarch, the white male because he can handle it. So by having this double standard you're actually saying that whites can't handle the same criticism that -- I'm sorry, Blacks can't handle the same criticism that whites can.


Later on the show, Peterson claimed he believed "it was a mistake to allow people of color into white countries:"
