The new Advanced Placement U.S. History book is under fire across America for, among other scandals, portraying President Donald Trump’s supporters as ignorant old racists.
The Liberal Left not only controls the media and the nightly news, but they control what textbooks are used in the our public school system. One of those books, entitled By The People: A History of the United States, portrays Donald Trump as angry racist whose racist followers elected him into office. By comparison, Hillary Clinton, for whom the Clinton Dead Pool is named, is portrayed as a sweet, all-american old-fashioned politician who just wants to do something for the country that she loves. This is how distorted a world we find ourselves in, and the incredible levels to which the Far Left will sink in order to remake this nation into a Socialist-Communist-Marxist country.

New School History Book Paints Trump as Racist and Extremist
FROM THE NEW AMERICAN: It also paints Trump as a racist and highlights his alleged “extremism,” without explaining what, exactly, the far-left author considers to be “extreme.”
“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 — more voters than any other single Republican candidate,” claimed the author, without explaining how Trump could win when “most” supposedly thought he was too extreme.
“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,” claims the book, dubbed “By The People: A History of the United States” and written by leftist pseudo-historian James Fraser from New York University.
By contrast, Clinton supporters are portrayed much differently. “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 author wrote.
On top of that, the book continues pushing the fake narrative, peddled by what Trump has consistently ridiculed as the “fake news” media, that the president’s critics are concerned about his “mental stability” and his “anger.” “They [Clinton supporters] also worried about the mental instability of the president-elect and the anger that he and his supporters brought to the nation,” the author said.

A Pearson spokesperson defended the textbook pointing out the book underwent “rigorous peer review to ensure academic integrity.”
FROM TODD STARNES: “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.
“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.”
“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.
Ronald Reagan once said that “our most precious resources, our greatest hope for the future, are the minds and hearts of our people, especially our children.” And yet we have entrusted our most precious resources to a bunch of degenerate propagandists who hate everything about the land of the free and the home of the brave.
