We learned this week about a new U.S. history book, “By the People: A History of the United States” by James Fraser, is being peddled to school districts. Specifically, the book raised a few eyebrows because of its explanation about the 2016 election.
This is the story:
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.”
Well, what can you say?
Do you think that we will ever have an explanation of President Obama’s election pointing out that his votes came from people who believe in abortion, even abortion after 20 weeks? Or angry people who shut down conservative speakers? Or people who believe that cities can decide what federal law applies to them or not?
My message to parents in public schools is to get involved and read what your kids are reading in school. Confront your teachers or school administrations and demand answers to your questions.
Don’t assume that your kids are learning how to read and write. They may be spending their time wondering about their gender or hearing from people who hate the U.S.
A post from February 2007:
Hollywood loves Obama. He is the new liberal virgin. For many of these liberals, Obama is like living the '68 Bobby Kennedy campaign all over again. Beyond that, I do believe that most liberals hate the Clintons. Liberals feel betrayed by the Clintons.
After all, who let the Kyoto treaty sit around without bringing it to the US Senate for ratification?
Who went around the UN in Bosnia and Haiti?
Who bombed Iraq in 1998?
Who signed welfare reform, NAFTA and The Defense of Marriage Act?
Let me ask you this: Who threw the liberals overboard in '96 to go "centrist" and get reelected? The answer is Bill Clinton!
This is why 4 million liberals voted for Nader in 2000. It was their way of saying "no" to 8 years of Clinton-Gore!
Add the last minute Clinton pardons and the story is complete.
Hillary Clinton's "yes and no" Iraq War record does not help. It is correct to assume that Hillary Clinton is reading polls and telling people what they want to hear.
Don't underestimate this Obama-Clinton spat.
Where is Mark's "good taste committee" when we really need them? Lots of very ugly comments about Barbara Bush over at Facebook this morning. And Twitter, too! Why isn't Mark taking down these ugly comments or shutting down accounts?— Silvio Canto, Jr. (@SCantojr) April 18, 2018
No one said it'd be easy to reform France:
French President Emmanuel Macron is determined to loosen up rules regarding public sector employment but he is facing strong resistance from unions led by French rail workers who have announced plans for several months of rolling walkouts designed to grind the nation to a halt.Not easy at all.
