Just go on record that if someone comes up with an idea to start teaching CRT in the future, you will be against it. How hard is that?
Why should anyone (much less myself) have to fight against something that doesn't exist, when in fact it does not actually exist in any manner that can be proven by either its opponents or its supposed supporters? When the Florida legislature went through all the throes of bringing this law into place, they could not show any substantiated examples of CRT being taught in Florida schools. No teacher, even politically conservative ones, could say they were being forced to teach it, or even knew what it was. And worse, the legislature couldn't even definitely define just what the hell CRT is, as a course matter allegedly being taught in even college levels, much less down in 1st grade. All this CRT nonsense had not been a single issue in Florida public schools, in any meaningful way, until the Republican legislature suddenly needed an "ooga-booga" issue to rail against.

I can only speak for Florida, but its state legislature has run the state business for now over twenty and change years. The state Democrat party is essentially moribund and powerless. In effect, outside of established large cities, the Democrats have little effect on how this state is run. Yet *still* to this day the Republicans blame the Democrats for all the failings in Florida's operation. They even still blame Democrats for issues going back to when many Democrats hadn't yet moved over to the Republican party, but were running the state, the so-called Dixie-crats.
And yet you can't say that you would be against it being taught in grade school? We all know that CRT exists. No one, anywhere, is going to agree on what it means, so its a moot point to even debate that topic. But the fact remains that the topic of CRT does exist in the world. The question is whether it should be taught in grade schools. That question is pretty simple. You either think it should or you think it should not.

They won't even acknowledge its existence let alone address questions like whether or not it's dogma should be forced on grade schoolers.
They'll mischaracterize, build strawman arguments and deflect just like with the Florida bill.
It's intellectually pathetic. If they support those things it should be very easy to articulate why.

I mean, Florida has shown a couple examples from the math books they banned, and it looks pretty shady (if we are being intellectually honest). Bar graphs of "racial prejudice" or "more than 2 million have tested their racial prejudice..." sure looks like there is a CRT initiative.

Worse, the same group that wants to include these divisive inclusions in math, also call it "racist" at it core. (Oh the irony).

Its not hard to find examples of these shenanigans. Here is one I read just today.
Seattle Public Schools introduced the CRT lens into math classes through the district's ethnic studies department. In 2019, the department released guidelines for K-12 math teachers to use in the classroom as part of a pilot program at a handful of Seattle public schools.

The framework claims that "mathematical knowledge has been appropriated by Western culture" and that "math has been and continues to be used to oppress and marginalize people and communities of color."

Seattle math teacher Shraddha Shirude is a believer, using ethnic studies in her high school course Mathematics for Liberation to tell students that the subject is "used to oppress people." She says she enjoys teaching through the ethnic studies lens because it dismantles the "toxic" white culture of math classes.

"When we're only teaching them that one master narrative, that's the master narrative that is around in society too, because they grow up, and then they teach their kids that, and that's how they approach the world. That's how they engage with other people. That's what they see as normal. That's what they see as standard. That's what they see as law. It's all based on white supremacy culture," Shirude explained to the South Seattle Emerald.

This framework has hurt Seattle students.
And this gem, which I found to be interesting in and of itself:
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation funded the groups behind A Pathway to Equitable Math Instruction with nearly $140 million. That includes millions to The Education Trust, a fringe education advocacy group that refers to student loan debt for black students as "Jim Crow debt," and Teach Plus, which encourages teachers to become "social agents of change."

OK, the "Word". Until recently, both sides of the political spectrum would most often work for the betterment of the Country. Bi-partnership, cooperation, compromise wasn't the vile words bordering on treason it is today. I'm not naive to know "Bloodsport" has not sometimes been a part of the political landscape. I'm just talking recent. I'm not in any way offering a history lesson, but let's take the wayback machine almost 100 years in the past. In the 1930's, most Americans (your grandparents, great-grandparents whatever) along everybody else worldwide spent almost a decade surviving the worst economic depression in history. Didn't get past that then it was time to gear up for 6 years fighting a World War (followed by Korea 5 years later and Vietnam 15 years later). Didn't get past that then it was time to gear up against the Soviet Union in an almost half century Cold War. Not any war, but The War. Mostly forgotten is the fact that for almost 50 years, every human on Earth woke every day with that one thought tucked way in the back of their brains that today could be the day when some idiot hundreds or thousands of miles away could screw up and they and most of humanity would be dead by the end of it. Parents/teachers/schools may have bickered about mundane subjects but there was no "social experimentation". Too busy churning out students with excellent educations in Science, Engineering, etc anything that would help the cause to defeat the unholy Commies. Nobody had any time for any extra curricular mamby-pamby crap. Then in the early 90's, the Soviet Union collapsed. We looked around. We won, we stood atop the World unchallenged as the only Superpower. Time to revel in our almost 70 year struggle. Not soon after, the "Word" started creeping in. Both sides started sniping, social experimentation in our schools and military and elsewhere, etc etc on both sides. The Word is "Boredom". "Political Boredom". We no longer had a main enemy, so we decided to make each other the enemy.
