A new Advanced Placement history book for our schools exclaims that President Donald Trump is mentally ill and all his supporters and voters are abject racists. THIS is what your schools are teaching kids, America.
That’s right, Trump voters. Your tax-funded schools are teaching your kids that you are a racist.
The new AP textbook will hit classes starting in 2020… juuuust in time for the elections, according to Powerline.
Powerline says that the book asserts that “[Trump’s] not very-hidden racism connected with a significant number of primary voters.”
Let’s get this straight. There is NO racism among Trump’s voters. And Trump himself is no racist, Despite the lies from the media, Trump has never done anything to show he is a racist.
Powerline goes on:
What connected with a significant number of primary voters was Trump’s strong opposition to illegal immigration and his concern over terrorists entering the U.S. The textbook effectively characterizes these concerns as “not very-hidden racism” and those who share them as racists. This is controversial, to say the least. I consider it slanderous.
The textbook goes further. It says that Hillary Clinton supporters “worried about the mental stability of the president-elect.” Some did, or claimed to. But many Trump supporters worried about whether Clinton compromised our national security by criminally using a private email servers. Some McCain supporters worried about what they considered (with good reason) Barack Obama’s socialism and his undeniably communist mentor.
This is outrageous. But the book publisher sees nothing at all wrong.
The publisher says the text underwent “rigorous peer review to ensure academic integrity.”
Yeah. Biased, left-wingers giving “rigorous peer review” to the fake history of other hardcore left-wingers!
What could go wrong?
As Powerline sums up:
The book’s hateful insinuations and assertions about Trump and those who voted for him are unacceptable in a text used to teach high school students American History. Any school in which the book is used should be the target of vigorous protests. The political blowback should be fierce.
But this is how the left is destroying our system of education, dumbing down and indoctrinating our students, and undermining this country.
