New High School Textbook Describes Trump as Mentally Ill, Supporters as Racist

trump mentally ill education

Many Advanced Placement students across the fruited plain will be using an American History textbook that depicts President Trump as mentally ill and his supporters as racists.

The textbook, published by Pearson Education, is titled, “By the People: A History of the United States.” It was first exposed by radio host Alex Clark in 2018.

And here’s just a glimpse at the Mainstream Media coverage back in 2018:

The final section of the book, titled, “The Angry Election of 2016” is especially critical of the president.

“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,” the author wrote.

The author goes on to describe the president’s supporters as “mostly older, often rural or suburban, and overwhelmingly white.”

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

In other words, Advanced Placement students are going to be taught that President Trump is mentally insane and his supporters are a bunch of irredeemable deplorables. Such descriptions would be laughable, but this garbage is being shoved into the minds of impressionable American teenagers.

Tarra Snyder, a student at Rosemount High School in Minnesota, told Fox News she was “appalled” after seeing how “blatantly biased” the textbook was toward Trump and his voters. She said it also glossed over all issues then-Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton faced during her campaign.

“It was really, really surprising to me,” she said. “I really believe that learning should be objective and that students can make their own decisions based on what they’re able to learn in a classroom, and if the facts are skewed then students aren’t able to make well-rounded decisions on what they believe.”

A Pearson spokesperson defended the textbook pointing out the book underwent “rigorous peer review to ensure academic integrity.”
“This work is designed to convey college-level information to high school students and meet specific Advanced Placement standards. It aims to promote debate and critical thinking by presenting multiple sides of historical issues and offering a broad survey of arguments from the 2016 presidential election and other recent topics. We have reviewed the passages in question independently and in the context of the rest of the book. This review has confirmed that the text offers a broad view of critical arguments from both sides of the 2016 presidential election,” the statement read.
Joy Pullman, writing for The Federalist, noted the dangers of such textbooks being used in public school classrooms.
“Let’s be clear: This is overt political propaganda being scooped into the most capable students minds under the guise of education. Even if they don’t accept its messages entirely, studying this wastes time that young people deserve to be spending getting actually educated,” she wrote.

Ronald Reagan once said that “our most precious resources, our greatest hope for the future, are the minds and hearts of our people, especially our children.”

And yet we have entrusted our most precious resources to a bunch of degenerate propagandists who hate everything about the land of the free and the home of the brave.

In his 1989 farewell address, Reagan warned the nation about what was to come.

“An informed patriotism is what we want,” he said. “And are we doing a good enough job teaching our children when America is and what she represents in the long history of the world?


  1. what fools abound–just wait when Donald Dump gets 2 term–be really scared. Guy is bonkers–crazy.

    • Depends on what news u read or listen to. I recommend for a more balance view in understanding how Israel owns US CORPORATION🎵

  2. The (((people))) who run our country, control our media, publish our school books and indoctrinate our youth
    hate everybody equally. They hide behind weaponized fake words like white supremacy and antisemitism. Watch Europa: The Last Battle documentary…on Bitchute, life changing information, explains everything.

  3. Saul Alinski (Bolshevik) Projecting Techniques. Interesting? But using this technique on children is way over the line. Explaining to the children what is being done to them is cool. What is it with the emphasis ‘children?’ The Long War plan becomes more evident by the day.

    Psychological projection is a theory in psychology in which humans defend themselves against their own unconscious impulses or qualities (both positive and negative) by denying their existence in themselves while attributing them to others.

  4. Well, right of the bat; he’s a pathological liar. “Drain the swamp, bring our troops home, build a wall, trust me, America first, …”

    He’s an aggressive and violent war monger who attacked Syria and Venezuela unprovoked.

    He “believes” the cult of “Israel” is America’s best ally, …that’s delusional. Israel deceived America into false flag WW 1 and 2, and Israel masterminded and perpetrated the 9/11 attack, and Israel helped Trump rig a US election.

    We can go on for days about how…Trump, it is alleged, he tied up and raped a 13-year old girl in Epstein’s Florida home. That makes him an anti-social psychopath pedophile.

    He’s plumb nutz.

    And yes, I too voted for Trump’s message, but not the lies and war crimes he’s perpetrating after taking office.

    • Got any proof about the 13 year old? Never heard that one before.
      Trump inherited a mess. The stuff your talking about.
      My understanding is Trump went the opposite way with Epstein,
      If you compare Trump with the last 60 years of rule, you are sorely mistaken.
      I don’t believe it, unless you have a video. Blackmailing was the game.
      If this was so, you would have known it before the election.
      Didn’t happen. Unless you have something to back it up.
      Trump sucking up to Israel is tolerable, to me.
      Israel: A little spec of land in the sea of Islam. Which used to be all Christian at one tme. This is why.

    • @John Cuckman

      That’s your own personal “truth”. Not fact. We teach facts in school, not your emotional bullshit influenced by propaganda, staged by a ruling and media elite who think that their “truth” equals fact.

      You need to look up the definition of truth and opinion, and learn something.

    • One Candidate was in denial the night of the election, and it wasn’t Trump.
      Trump supporters weren’t considered racists when they voted for Obama in the previous elections.

      • But, they were considered idiots if they voted for that ass the second time.
        I did not fall for that trap.

  5. Can all non-racist Trump supporters file a class action lawsuit against this leftist publisher for slander and libel? On another note, anyone that believes there are 62.9 million racists in America is clearly the mentally ill party and simply masking it with psychological projection.

  6. i see an ad for that very textbook @ amazon, right here on this article;
    $188.54 – how can any student’s parents afford to pay that?
    i would refuse.

  7. That worthless, propaganda tome has to sell for $188 because virtually no one will ever buy (let alone read) it. It does makes a trendy doorstop. Or, perhaps as a coffee table ornament for virtue-signaling libtards.

  8. Don’t worry. Its only the next book-burning that will take place.
    Who decides these things? Those people will be toast. Particularly after the next election.
    Anything the Democrats win will be contested as rigged.
    And rightfully so.
