An updated edition of a high school history textbook promotes an anti-Trump narrative and is laced with innuendos that his supporters and white people in general are racists.

Alex On-Air, a talk show host with WNOW-FM radio in Indianapolis, Indiana, posted several examples from the textbook on Twitter, and the story was also reported by The American Mirror.

“In case you didn’t think there was an effort going on in public schools to indoctrinate kids with an anti-conservative agenda, a friend of mine took pictures and highlighted parts of this AP US History book,” the WNOW radio host wrote on Twitter.

The textbook, “By The People,” by James W. Fraser is geared for Advanced Placement high school students in grades 9-12, according to its publisher’s website. The book, published by textbook giant Pearson, is an updated edition and carries a 2019 copyright mark.

A section of the book reads:

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. 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. They also worried about the mental instability of the president-elect and the anger that he and his supporters brought to the nation.

Published photos of the book show that it also states:

Whatever people’s opinions, on January 20, 2017, Donald J. Trump was inaugurated as the forty-fifth president of the United States. The inner circle of his advisors seemed to represent a mix of some deeply ideological conservatives, traditional politicians, and his family. His cabinet nominees were mostly highly successful business leaders who had made their fortunes and were now joining the team of another unusually successful businessman. They were largely white males, more so than any presidential cabinet since Ronald Reagan.

“By The People” also brings up former President Barack Obama’s tenure, stating: “Those who had long thought of the nation as a white and Christian country sometimes found it difficult to adjust.”

Further, it promotes an “all-white-people-are-racists” narrative in a section about the activist group Black Lives Matter. The group entered the national stage through demonstrations it held after Michael Brown was killed by Ferguson, Missouri police in 2014.

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

The history textbook is just one example of how the liberal agenda is promoted in schools. In another recent example, members of the LGBT community are pushing for legislation in Illinios that would require public schools to teach LGBT history.

In March, a parent posted on Facebook questions her daughter was asked for a fill-in-the-blank vocabulary quiz.

The a questions included:

  • “It was difficult for me to [blank] my feeling when I learned that Donald J. Trump had been voted in as our 45th President.”
  • “After reading about President Trump’s immigration ban, I did not realize how [blank] the law can be.”

Another example is parents of students at New Trier High School, which is located in an upscale, mostly-white suburb of Chicago. Parents there were upset about teachings at a seminar on “understanding today’s struggle for racial civil rights.”

Some called it a way to force ‘social justice’ issues the school’s 4,000 students. School and district officials defended the seminar as a way to teach current events.

    Another example of the indoctrination of our children. Wake up parents! Check their textbooks completely for untrue rhetoric. Stand up for truth and fair representation of today’s world events. You children’s and our county’s future depends on it.

      That is the primary reason the Left are advocating for government run child day care. what better way to indoctrinate our kids than to start while they are still in diapers. We really need to wake the hell up, before it’s too late. It might already be too late.

    The parents should get together, protest this bullshit and demand this book be removed and banned immediately from the curriculum, and replaced with a non-biased history book, if any exist.

    Pull federal funds from school districts using these textbooks and forcing students to attend social justice seminars.

    The Progressive movement has been active in America since the turn of the 20th Century. The Communists (Progressives/Liberals/Democrats), have been working at subverting our nation for over 100 years. The election of President Trump upset their apple cart. He threw a monkey wrench into their plans. HilLiary Rotten Clinton is a Radical Progressive. She stated so in a speaking engagement at an American’s For Prosperity meeting several years ago. She stated “I am a Progressive of the Early 20th Century Type, (or kind)”. Which is a Communist. The left thought that HilLiary was certain to win the 2016 election. They were wrong! This is only the beginning. The fight is just beginning. It will get far worse than it is now. The sleeping majority needs to wake up and smell the coffee. Since its inception, the GOP has stood for equality, and justice for all people who are in the US legally. We fought slavery in the Civil
    war. Over 300,000 Union troops (predominately white), paid the ultimate sacrifice to free the slaves. The formation of the NRA by Union Officers to teach freed slaves how to use weapons to defend themselves, and more importantly, their equal rights under the 2nd Amendment. The GOP fought and protested the pole taxes, and the litnus tests forced on Southern Black voters by Southern Democrats. We fought the Jim Crow laws passed explicitly down party lines, (not a single Republican voted for Jim Crow). We fought Segregation, we stood for equality for all. The Black community has been lied to, and used by the Democrats since the end of the Civil War. It continues today. Why would anyone, especially an African American, surrender any of their rights to the Federal or State Government? It makes no sense at all. Please people, wake up and smell the coffee! What the hell do you have to loose?

    The best way to deal with this type of indoctrination is to expose this publishing company and author. Expose them on all social platforms, and get the word out.

    You should have mentioned in this article the comments the author made in the book about Trump being Against ALL IMMIGRATION and wanting to BUILD A WALL TO STOP ALL IMMIGRATION FROM MEXICO, and he hated immigrants, all lies. He’s against ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION!.

    So in other words, all this book is doing is telling HS kids that Trump and his supporters are a bunch of racists who are trying to make America White again, leaving out the fact that the left is a bunch of Opposite commies who want to turn America socialist but cant so they are trying to start an all out race war in order to thin the herds so to speak and make it easier for them to turn us all Socialist…too bad that, yet again, the self described, Educated and oh so smart dems dont realize how wrong they are, same as how wrong they were thinking HRC was gonna win in 2016, wrong about the 2018 BLUE WAVE, and how wrong they were about the whole Russian Collusion BS, and how wrong abpout thinking they will beat us in 2020!

    Redact, redact, redact, then send the textbook back. This is exactly the kind of leftist indoctrination our kids are being subjected to, and textbook publishers are at the forefront of the globalist agenda. It is time we took our schools back.

    More Proof of how the Democrats are copying Stalin, Nazi Hitler techniques to take control of the American People.
    The Communist Democrat Party has become a very dangerous group of people, who must be stopped and eradicated!! Democrats have become aggressive Terrorists !!
    The people need to call Every Democrat Representative in Government and tell them we will not stand for their
    Communist/Socialist Nazi Power Plays to Over Throw our country, we will vote Democrats Out Of Office In 2020!
    Democrats need to hear from the American People.

    it is a national and scholastic disgrace these people were allowed to get away with these lies and should be called out for it/ My opinion jail time should be served. But neither will happen. If these people don’t like living here LEAVE PRONTO.

    Those “Racist white people” had just elected a “Black man”, not once but twice to the white house.
