We all know what that means.” Add your own caption in the comments section, below.
Most indoctrinating centers we know as American learning institutions, higher and lower, are liberal cesspools, indoctrinating young minds with hatred for traditional American values where progressive BS is pounded into the impressionable brains of our children on a daily basis.
Nowhere is this more true than our public schools, especially public high schools. I am the parent of four indoctrinees, two of whom have recovered nicely from their indoctrination and are now open-minded conservatives, although largely apolitical.
As The Blaze points out in the following article, America’s public schools are indoctrinating our children to believe that President Trump is a mentally ill misfit and incompetent racist. The problem isn’t in one public school. It is pervasive, infecting schools across the country.
The problem begins in the colleges that produce teachers, nearly all of whom have been indoctrinated themselves and are sent out into the countryside to indoctrinate your children and mine.
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.
What does this reflect?
“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.”
It is hard to imagine that parents aren’t showing up to School Board meetings with pitchforks and torches, but I guess they simply don’t care enough, thus the indoctrination continues.
What else does it say?
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.
I have had very serious concerns regarding the inferior education my children received at our local high school, but with all four born within a five-year span, my wife and I couldn’t afford private schooling. I really wish we had home-schooled.
The fix to this critically-important problem is school vouchers. In an ideal world, there would be a private school in every community dedicated to teaching traditional education, real history (not revisionist history) and civics, courses missing from most of today’s public schools, instead of the trash that passes for public school curricula today. I feel certain that these private schools would be hugely successful.
