(National Sentinel)Â Indoctrination: A new version of the AP U.S. History textbook for primary school students reportedly contains bias against President Donald J. Trump and suggests that white Christians are racists and xenophobes.
Alex Clark, a radio talk show host of WNOWâ€™s â€œThe Joe and Alex Showâ€ posted pictures of the book and its contents on Twitter after the publisher, Pearson Education, sent samples of the new version to public schools to encourage administrations to buy it, according to Fox News.
The book also features sections on the Black Lives Matter movement and the 2016 presidential election. Author James Fraser, of New York University, portrays Christians, conservatives, and Trump supporters as bigots who fear non-whites.
â€œIn case you didnâ€™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,â€ she tweeted with pictures of the book containing highlighted passages.
â€œThere are specific parts where it goes off the rails from a historical textbook toward an op-ed,â€ Minnesota Rosemount High School student Tarra Snyder told Fox News.
â€œIt was really, really surprising to me. I really believe that learning should be objective and that students can make their own decisions based on what theyâ€™re able to learn in a classroom; and if the facts are skewed, then students arenâ€™t able to make well-rounded decisions on what they believe,â€ Snyder continued.
One section of the book is titled, â€œThe Angry Election of 2016,â€ and it describes Trumpâ€™s supporters as â€œmostly older, often rural or suburban, and overwhelmingly white.â€
In addition, the section labels the presidentâ€™s supporters from the perspective of supporters of Hillary Clinton as â€œpeople who were afraid of a rapidly developing ethnic diversity of the country, discomfort with their candidateâ€™s gender, and nostalgia for an earlier time in the nationâ€™s history.â€
Meanwhile, Clintonâ€™s supporters are said to be â€˜worried about the mental stability of the president-elect and the anger that he and his supporters brought to the nation,â€ the book notes.
In actuality, it was supporters of Clinton and her one-time challenger, socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders, who spawned Antifa and similar far-Left movements whose members and supporters treated Trump supporters so viciously that Obamaâ€™s FBI and Department of Homeland Security labeled them domestic terrorists.
In addition, the book claims that white Christians feared the increase in minorities in the years following the 2012 election, the author claims.
â€œThose who had long thought of the nation as a white and Christian country sometimes found it difficult to adjust,â€ the book says.
Regarding the president, Fraser says he exhibits â€œnot-very-hidden racismâ€ and â€œextremism.â€
