Conservatives have been making the argument for years that public schools are no longer about teaching kids what they need to know to be prepared for the real world and instead have become indoctrination centers for the left.
Some might think that’s some sort of tinfoil hat nonsense, but it’s the truth and a new high school history textbook is proof.
This textbook apparently teaches that President Trump is mentally ill and his supporters, along with all white people, are racists.
TheBlaze is reporting:
An updated edition of a high school history textbook promotes an anti-Trump narrative and is laced with innuendos that his supporters and white people in general are racists.
Alex On-Air, a talk show host with WNOW-FM radio in Indianapolis, Indiana, posted several examples from the textbook on Twitter, and the story was also reported by The American Mirror.
“In case you didn’t think there was an effort going on in public schools to indoctrinate kids with an anti-conservative agenda, a friend of mine took pictures and highlighted parts of this AP US History book,” the WNOW radio host wrote on Twitter.
The textbook, “By The People,” by James W. Fraser is geared for Advanced Placement high school students in grades 9-12, according to its publisher’s website. The book, published by textbook giant Pearson, is an updated edition and carries a 2019 copyright mark.
A section of the book reads:
Trump’s supporters saw the vote as a victory for the people who, like themselves, had been forgotten in a fast-changing America–a mostly older, often rural or suburban, and overwhelmingly white group. Clinton’s supporters feared that the election had been determined by people who were afraid of a rapidly developing ethnic diversity of the country, discomfort with their candidate’s gender, and nostalgia for an earlier time in the nation’s history. They also worried about the mental instability of the president-elect and the anger that he and his supporters brought to the nation.
Whatever people’s opinions, on January 20, 2017, Donald J. Trump was inaugurated as the forty-fifth president of the United States. The inner circle of his advisors seemed to represent a mix of some deeply ideological conservatives, traditional politicians, and his family. His cabinet nominees were mostly highly successful business leaders who had made their fortunes and were now joining the team of another unusually successful businessman. They were largely white males, more so than any presidential cabinet since Ronald Reagan.
“By The People” also brings up former President Barack Obama’s tenure, stating: “Those who had long thought of the nation as a white and Christian country sometimes found it difficult to adjust.”
Further, it promotes an “all-white-people-are-racists” narrative in a section about the activist group Black Lives Matter. The group entered the national stage through demonstrations it held after Michael Brown was killed by Ferguson, Missouri police in 2014.
“The nearly all-white police force was seen as an occupying army in the mostly African American town,” the book states, adding, “…police increased the tensions, defacing memorials set up for Brown and using rubber bullets on demonstrators.”
Progressives have cleverly infiltrated almost every facet of the realm of public education, including the creation of textbooks, using that platform as a means of spreading their message of radical transformation of the great American republic.
This is a disturbing new trend that is beginning to take place at schools all across the country. We are far past due in stripping the Department of Education of power and restoring the balance to average American parents.
If this doesn’t happen soon, whole generations will be lost to liberalism.
