Many Advanced Placement students across the fruited plain will be using an American History textbook that depicts President Trump as mentally ill and his supporters as racists.

The textbook, published by Pearson Education, is titled, “By the People: A History of the United States.” It was first exposed by radio host Alex Clark in 2018.

The final section of the book, titled, “The Angry Election of 2016” is especially critical of the president.

“Most thought that Trump was too extreme a candidate to win the nomination, but his extremism, his anti-establishment rhetoric, and, some said, his not very hidden racism connected with a significant number of primary voters,” the author wrote.

The author goes on to describe the president’s supporters as “mostly older, often rural or suburban, and overwhelmingly white.”

“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,” the textbook reads. “They also worried about the mental stability of the president-elect and the anger that he and his supporters brought to the nation.”

In other words, Advanced Placement students are going to be taught that President Trump is mentally insane and his supporters are a bunch of irredeemable deplorables. Such descriptions would be laughable, but this garbage is being shoved into the minds of impressionable American teenagers.

Tarra Snyder, a student at Rosemount High School in Minnesota, told Fox News she was “appalled” after seeing how “blatantly biased” the textbook was toward Trump and his voters. She said it also glossed over all issues then-Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton faced during her campaign. . . .

A Pearson spokesperson defended the textbook pointing out the book underwent “rigorous peer review to ensure academic integrity.”
“This work is designed to convey college-level information to high school students and meet specific Advanced Placement standards. It aims to promote debate and critical thinking by presenting multiple sides of historical issues and offering a broad survey of arguments from the 2016 presidential election and other recent topics. We have reviewed the passages in question independently and in the context of the rest of the book. This review has confirmed that the text offers a broad view of critical arguments from both sides of the 2016 presidential election,” the statement read.
Joy Pullman, writing for The Federalist, noted the dangers of such textbooks being used in public school classrooms.
“Let’s be clear: This is overt political propaganda being scooped into the most capable students’s minds under the guise of education. Even if they don’t accept its messages entirely, studying this wastes time that young people deserve to be spending getting actually educated,” she wrote.

When all the peers reviewing the materials are partisan leftists propagandists without any academic integrity the chances of ensuring academic integrity is nil.

Textbooks are to be factual not opinionated so the student can research and draw conclusions themselves.
Education vs propagandizing

Trump supporters are meek, not weAk, as Republicans have been historically less vocal about their opinions and personslly i think this has been a mistake. It is more than past time to let out voices roar in our country. The Democrats have shouted us down and we just allowed it. NO MORE! FIND YOUR VOICE AND SHOUT OUT REPUBLICANS. MY DAD TAUGHT ME, “IF YOU DON’T STAND FORE SOMETHING, YOU WILL FALL FOR ANYTHING!”
The book written they are speaking if in this article has BLATANT LIES ABOUT PRESIDENT TRUMP AND SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM ALL SCHOOLS CURRICULA ASAP!!!! WE, THE PEOPLE CAN DO THIS! Contact EVERY School Administrator in the US, Write School Boards and demand to speak at public meetings against it, bring your friends and notify the media to come and cover this. It is time to speak up! Contact your Congressmen and Senators..tell them if they want to stay in office, they had better start and continue to BACK PRESIDENT TRUMP ON HIS AGENDA AND MEAN IT. SPEAK OUT I PUBLIC AGAINST THIS AUTHOR LIES AND MAKE SURE EVERYONE KNOW HIS WORDS ARE LIES ABOUT PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP. WE WANT THE TRUTH PRINTED IN OUR HISTORY BOOKS. Period.
