Some weeks back, I wrote a piece here at RedState opining that conservatives were winning the battle against Critical Race Theory, specifically in relation to it being taught in schools. The racist ideology (no, it is not just “history”), which teaches things like racial essentialism and the supposed inherent racism of whiteness, has already become pervasive within federal bureaucracies and the military. Its proponents’ next target was primary education.

That’s when a large contingent of concerned parents rose up across the country, pushing back at the local level. That’s produced results in some cases via school board election wins. But perhaps more importantly, it’s pulled the curtain back and exposed what the left has been trying to do.

Now, in perhaps the most compelling piece of evidence yet that conservatives are making serious headway, Ibram X. Kendi is completely changing his tune, contradicting his past statements in an obvious attempt to get the right to disengage.

Appearing with Joy Reid on MSNBC (because where else?), Kendi had this to say.

His first contention is nonsense. You do not go to law school to be a “critical race theorist.” Rather, it’s an ideology that is taught across a wide spectrum, including in certain law school classes, and anyone can adopt its viewpoints. Kendi clearly has in the past, though, he’s conveniently trying to now disown his prior positions in order to try to soften what he’s been propagating.

Here’s the thing, though. You don’t make this kind of shift if you believe you are going to win the fight over CRT. Rather, Kendi seems to want to preserve his grift while insisting that it doesn’t include what it obviously includes. That’s something you do if you want to try to goad your opposition into backing off, knowing they have you cornered.

Remember, Kendi’s entire game to this point has been to trap people in a room with no exits,
