Is It History, Or Is It Propaganda?

News reports on an AP American History textbook that tells our kids what
happened in the 2016 presidential election. From Hillary Clinton’s point of
view, of course:
Tarra Snyder, a student at Rosemount High School in Minnesota, who saw
a copy of the book sent to her school, told Fox News she was “appalled” after
seeing how “blatantly biased” the newest edition of “By the People: A History
of the United States” was toward Trump and his voters. She said it also glossed
over all issues then-Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton faced
during her campaign.
The textbook – published by British-owned, Pearson Education, and
authored by New York University professor James Fraser – is currently being
pitched to public high schools in an effort to get them to buy the latest
The final section of the book, titled “The Angry Election of 2016,” is
highly critical of Trump.
“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,” Fraser wrote.
Liberal bias in schools? Who would've guessed!
So high school
students enrolled in advanced placement American History classes will be
taught, as a fact, that President Trump is a “not-very-hidden” racist.
Trump voters are described as “mostly older, often rural or suburban,
and overwhelmingly white” while the book uses the viewpoint of Clinton voters
to describe Trump’s supporters as fearful, backwards, sexist people who
supported a mentally ill candidate.
“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 says. “They also worried about the mental
stability of the president-elect and the anger that he and his supporters
brought to the nation.”
This sort of
ignorance and bias is rampant throughout American education. Some have
suggested that it is parental malpractice to send your children to a public
school. In many areas of the country, that proposition is hard to deny.
The student who blew
the whistle on this appalling text book lives one suburb over from mine. If I
can get in touch with her, I will follow up.
