Over the past few months, the battle over Critical Race Theory being taught in schools has raged. Parents have spoken out and protested at school board meetings while states have moved to ban its inclusion in curriculums across the country.

As conservatives gained more and more ground, many would say unexpectedly, the narrative began to shift. CRT proponents started to gaslight publicly, claiming that they were not trying to teach their racist ideology in schools in the first place. In essence, their way of pushing back on CRT opponents was to insist there was no actual problem to combat. Joy Reid has spent almost every night of her low-rated MSNBC program pushing that angle, for example.

All the claims to the contrary over the last several months were simply meant as misdirection in an attempt to call off the assault.

In fact, I wrote on that very idea last month, noting that those on the left were losing the war over CRT and that their next tactic would be to attempt to get the right to disengage by pretending CRT was not a threat. That’s why the left has been so enraged lately over this topic. For once, conservatives got the jump on them, and they simply aren’t used to that. Now, CRT proponents are regrouping, and together with the far-left teachers unions, they are preparing their counter-attack.

This vindicates every move made at the state level to fight this. Some on the right insisted
