I think capitalism can have a mind of it's own, collectively working to expand capitalism, even if it involves the great replacement of white people. It does this via *conscientous capitalism united against hate.* meaning they want censorship and might fire you from a job if video or a tweet shows you even having a conversation with the wrong beliefs. And when that happens the holocaust is the ideology right there justifying it all. Example: Facebook pulled a Donald Trump campaign ad because if featured a red triangle, and that was connected to the concentration camps and Facebook has a policy against "organized hate." In short: Facebook censored the President of the United States based on symbols connected to the holocaust (myth.)

You can see all this with the North Face and REI getting on board with a boycott of Facebook in July because Facebook doesn't censor enough 'hate' with hate often being defined as white people trying to preserve their people and culture. The holocaust is always there by proxy via the ADL, or mentioning of anti-semitism, or mentioning Nazis, or 'racist.' All those terms are informed by the holocaust myth.

I think you're more referring to the phenomenons of group think and ideological/cultural hegemony here. Marxists would call that class interest as well, although that is far more blunt (e.g. Bourgeoisie got an interest in property rights, low taxes, etc. - there is some indication that the top layer actually doesn't, but that's another analysis). Group think is more a social thing where people knowing and cooperating with each other think in a similar manner and hence are making decisions and doing things in a similar manner as well (they struggle to think outside the box then). Cultural hegemony is even far broader than that it's a kind of compulsion to 'view' things in a similar manner and to hence develop a mores in that line. This even get's hold of larger parts of society with developing shared or similar values and opinions on issues (with a smaller percentage actively dissenting ). While I consider all of this to be true phenomena and that this can lead to the appearance of people acting in a similar manner (hive mind), the actors within this context are still individual decision makers, they just don't act to far out of line, since this violation of an unwritten code can have negative consequences for them (social punishment). Within the context of capitalism / market economy a corporation's interest is making sustainable profit over time. Their image is very important to them. They want to be seen in line with the larger groups values and aesthetics (beauty and morality being linked). We think as corporations as very powerful, but they are actually very dependent on public opinion and the cooperation of other actors stakeholders with them. Those other stakeholders are e.g. distributors, customers, service providers, employees, investors and political and civil society organisations,media and of course governments. "Racism" (with Antisemitism supposedly to be a variant or even prototype of this) is kind of the "last sin" here. Why this is the case and why this even takes preeminence over all others (including sexism, homophobia, ableism, ageism, let alone old-fashioned vices etc.) is another analysis. But what's called "Racism" (and it is not exactly a well defined term) is a hinting towards people's in-group preference especially loyalty to their kinship group (family, tribe, folk, nation, group of similar nations which is what traditionally was understood to be race (not necessarily a discrete distinction within a species)). It's a also a blanket term of sorts covering all kinds of definitions relating to bigger kinship groups. As said it relates to in-group preference, but also to which side is to pick in an inter-group conflict. If one can destroy this group cohesion, by demonising anyone that shows an in-group preference a "racist" and make group members afraid of being called that one can of course far easier fight, overpower, control and ultimately destroy this group in the future. And I think that's at work here. Relating to this one should of course bear in mind Raphael Lemkin's initial definition of genocide: https://archive.org/details/genocidedef ... haellemkin
Back to your example of disallowing any contact with those outside that code of allowable opinion (racist). This is of course how thought-reform-cults do work: https://culteducation.com/brainwashing/ ... alism.html
It's ultimately a dispensing of existence and demand for purity in action. I'm not surprised the BLM-pogroms took place right after the Coronavirus-scare did take a global dimension with compulsory "hygiene measures" forced on members of the public. It took the form of a Healthscare in many countries. The physical hygiene scare preconditioned people for an ideological hygiene battle with the "healthy" or "immune" forcing it down the supposedly diseased (White folks) cleansing the public landscape from signs of the disease. For now it mostly took the form of symbolic violence, with occasional assaults and mob murders included, but that's merely a side show for now.
I agree that the Holocaust is the prototype for the "White guilt-ideology" in general. But while it's on its way out, it also has done much damage to the Western psyche already. Debunking the Holocaust will however have to be part of deprogramming people that are in the shaming trap. Won't be easy though, since the Anti-Racism cultists already achieved a high degree of milieu control as you were hinting to with the censorship on social media. They also aim at enforcing that further trying to maximise control over what can get published and distributed on social media. One advantage at the moment may be the focus is shifted from the Holocaust towards issues like Slavery and Colonialism. Perhaps this is a gap where one can come in. One would have to work out an approach with a strategy here. Something that is subtle enough to dodge the censorship, but still powerful enough to give people doubts about ideology and hints on what's happening. The mockdown-shock may also come in handy here, since trust in institutions is shaken as well. And that trust may get shaken even more within the next few month or years, when the shear incompetence of "science" and "government" comes out in the light of the "Corona-Crisis".
Funny enough the perfect figure for all that has been mentioned right now would be Ludwik Fleck. A Jewish medical doctor from Poland that worked against Typhus and was employed in concentration camps to do so, while also having written extensively of the issue of what nowadays is called group think and hegemony in institutions and organisations:

He could become the silver-bullet to destroy the Holocaust, the Cracism-Cult and the academic establishment at the same time.Guess we need to focus on him for a while.
