New School History Book Paints Trump as Racist and Extremist
Freedom Project ^ | April 17, 2018 | Alex Newman

Posted on 04/18/2018 2:44:55 PM PDT by detective

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. 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.

Our tax dollars are being spent to brainwash and indoctrinate our own children.

Like fake news, fake history is everywhere in the government schools.

Our children are being lied to and indoctrinated.

Looks like it's time for some good old fashioned Book burning.

Nothing like watching your hard earned Tax Dollars going up in smoke. Better that than the Swamp infesting Commie Government Bureaucrats brainwashing your Children.

I hate the thought of it, but it almost makes me consider mass executions in a new light.

Trump is not a racist, and his followers are not racists.

I’m really getting sick and tired of this nonsense. Donald Trump was never called a racist until he won the election - remember dung brain Peter Jennings when Newt and the crew took over the House? Something like “angry white men” threw a temper tantrum. Eff them all.

From the Web: The annual tuition and living expense budget to go to The New School was $67,459 for the 2015/2016 academic year. The cost is the same for all students regardless of New York residence status as there is no in-state discount.

See Star Parker's column on another thread here, wherein, she says: "Over the last half-century, some $22 trillion has been spent on anti-poverty programs and yet the percentage of poor in this nation remains unchanged. And it is not only a matter of the percentage staying the same but also that the people and families who are born poor stay that way."

Not only have so-called "Progressives," who, in fact, are regressive and have taken a once-prosperous nation back into almost bankruptcy, but who have failed rising generations by failing to teach them the ideas of liberty by which America became the greatest nation on earth!

The Constitution of the United States of America structured a form of self-government with strictly limited powers in the hands of imperfect persons who would serve terms in its federal offices, with frequent elections.

Progressives, since the late 1800's, have pledged themselves to "change" the Framers' "We, the People"-controlled government into a near tyrannical and oppressive center of power and oppression of the citizenry.

By gaining control of what has come to be known as the "education system," from top to bottom, they now have become propagandists who educate for rising generations to become accustomed to being "sheep," not a citizenry of free individuals and a strictly limited government power over their "pursuit" of happiness.

Talk is over. Either the commies win or we stay free. Now it's up to the people to do their job.

This dude titles his book “by the people” and then trashes a large segemnt of the people and the choice they made. These leftists are trying to establish a precedent of overturning the verdicts of election.

From the article:

“The book is published by the controversial British publishing behemoth Pearson. It has not been distributed — yet. But the publisher and author defended the pseudo-history, and are sticking by it, even having the nerve to claim with a straight face that it is “unbiased.”

Let us be watchful for when this Fake History book is slipped into our children’s hands. I am going to alert our school board to avoid purchasing this POS.

This is a double racket for the book publishers and sellers. they sell a new edition and further their political and ideological positions. Why do we need these endless new textbooks on everything?
