Anti-Trump American history textbook 'blatantly biased,' critics say
(too old to reply)

A new Advanced Placement honors American history textbook has not been
distributed to students yet but it’s already stirring controversy for
being anti-Trump and suggesting his supporters are angry xenophobes.

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.

"There are specific parts where it goes off the rails from a historical
textbook toward an op-ed," Snyder told Fox News.

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 edition.

Pearson spokesman, Scott Overland, told Fox News the textbook was
“developed by an expert author and underwent rigorous peer review to
ensure academic integrity.” He added that it was “designed to convey
college-level information to high school students” and “aims to promote
debate and critical thinking by presenting multiple sides” of the 2016

Overland added that they welcome feedback for their texts and are willing
to meet with concerned parents and teachers “as a part of our longstanding
commitment and track record of providing unbiased and accurate materials.”

Alex Clark, co-host of The Joe and Alex Show on WNOW in Indianapolis, Ind.
tweeted the book was the latest example of “an effort going on in public
school to indoctrinate kids with an anti-conservative agenda.”

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.

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.”

The book also bashes police for its handling of the Ferguson riots.

In a section titled “Black Lives Matter,” Fraser wrote that after the
shooting of Michael Brown, Brown’s “parents were kept away at gunpoint.”
He paints a negative view of police while glossing over violent tactics
carried out by some rioters, critics say.

“The nearly all-white police force was seen as an occupying army in the
mostly African American town…the police increased the tensions, defacing
memorials set up for Brown and using rubber bullets on demonstrators,” he

According to his bio, Fraser wrote the book to “help make U.S. History
courses more lively, with a focus on the agency of everyday Americans or
many different communities, times, and places.”

Congratulations President Trump. Thank you for cleaning up the disaster
of the Obama presidency.

Under Barack Obama's leadership, the United States of America became the
The World According To Garp.

ObamaCare is a total 100% failure and no lie that can be put forth by its
supporters can dispute that.

Obama jobs, the result of ObamaCare. 12-15 working hours a week at minimum
wage, no benefits and the primary revenue stream for ObamaCare. It can't
be funded with money people don't have, yet liberals lie about how great
it is.

Obama increased total debt from $10 trillion to $20 trillion in the eight
years he was in office, and sold out heterosexuals for Hollywood queer
liberal democrat donors.
