Scholastic Publishes Book About President Trump, Immediately Get Slammed

Published

on

Scholastic, a publishing company that pumps out books for kids of all ages, has come under fire by critics for publishing a book about President Trump for first and second grade readers.

Apparently, critics are ticked off because the book, according to them, “reads like promotional campaign material targeted at children.” One has to wonder if this same criticism existed for books aimed at kids about former President Barack Obama.

Scholastic published the book by Joanne Mattern in 2017.

On Wednesday, ThinkProgress published an article on the biographical book titled, “Scholastic’s pro-Trump propaganda for kids enrages teachers and parents.”

Casey Quinlan, the article’s author, cited a book review from Social Justice Books, which stated, “[“President Donald Trump”] is anything but neutral. The book outlines Trump’s personal and professional life with a celebratory tone. It omits facts, glosses over context, and ignores opposing perspectives.”

An excerpt from the book itself reads:

His buildings reached into the sky.
His businesses just grew and grew.
Then Trump became our president—
People wanted something new.

The Social Justice Books review, written by Kathleen Nganga and Sarah Cornelius, said the main problem with the book is with “extensive omissions that undermine a truthful, nuanced, and informative account” and “construct a false narrative.”

While the bias seems obvious at this point, wait until you see what these people said next. The hypocrisy will leap right out at you.

“Scrubbing away any trace of complexity or nuance from an account about an elected official stunts the quintessential democratic freedom and responsibility of questioning and critiquing those in positions of power,” they continued.

Remember when conservative leaning media attempted to portray an accurate, balanced account of Obama and were deemed racists for it? Now all of a sudden the left is making calls for a “fair and balanced” approach that doesn’t scrub the dirty bits, when it conveniently suits their narrative?

Really?

Who doesn’t support a full, nuanced, and balanced reporting of the facts involving political figures? That’s a great idea, one that most likely every conservative in the country could get behind. However, the left will not apply those standards evenly or fairly, which makes having objectivity and balance extremely hard to do.

The worst part of modern day progressivism is the hypocrisy, the lack of “practice what you preach” being applied to the average, day-to-day business of life.

Kellogg’s Introduces Woke Transgender Cereal for Kids

Kellogg’s cereals just launched a cereal to push transgenderism on kids.

The newest corporation to indulge wokeism is cereal company Kellogg’s which has just launched a cereal to push transgenderism on kids. The new flavor is an amalgam of several of their cereal brands all in the same box called “All Together.” Not only does this push the woke LGBTQ agenda, but is also give kids a spot to write their own “pronouns” on the box: https://twitter.com/robbystarbuck/status/1392669858718965766 According to gay website Advocate: Retailing for $4, Together With Pride will be on supermarket shelves in May, just prior to the month of LGBTQ+ festivities. For every purchase, Kellogg’s will donate $3 to GLAAD. For the donation to occur, patrons must upload a copy of their receipt to KelloggsFamilyRewards.com. The 7.8-ounce box is full of a rainbow variety of heart-shaped cereal bites and even edible glitter. Kellogg’s famous cereal figures are gathered on the exterior illustration, including Toucan Sam, Tony the Tiger, and the Rice Krispies elves, Snap, Crackle, and Pop. “We believe that all young people and those young at heart deserve an environment where they can grow up to be their best selves,” the caption on that box read. “That’s why we’ve joined forces with GLAAD by going purple on Spirit Day to stand up against bullying in all forms, and support a more accepting world for LGBTQ youth.” There is nothing new here, at least for Kellogg’s. This company has spent bullions funding hardcore, left-wing causes for decades. And they do this limited-edition gay cereal dealio just about every year.

Survey: Liberals Wildly Over-Estimate Cop Shootings and Crime

A new poll finds that left-wingers have no idea how many police-involved shootings there are and how much crime there is.

Trump Derangement Syndrome

A new poll finds that left-wingers have no idea how many police-involved shootings there are and how much crime there really is in America today. For instance, fewer than 50 unarmed suspects were killed by police in 2020, but when asked how many they think there were, liberals falsely put the number in the hundreds. Liberals also get just about all their facts wrong about crime in general, with the leftists imagining it is hundreds of times higher than it really is. A new Heartland Institute and Rasmussen Reports survey found that half of the respondents who said they rely on CNN and MSNBC for their news can’t get their facts right. For instance, the lefties think that more than 100 unarmed black people were killed by police last year. On the other hand, only 22 percent of Fox viewers thought that that more than 100 unarmed blacks were shot by police. Specifically, the survey asked: “Approximately how many unarmed African Americans were fatally shot by police in 2020? Less than 50, 50 to 100, 500 to 1,000, 1,000 to 5,000, 5,000 to 10,000, or more than 10,000.” Twenty-four percent of CNN viewers and 19% of MSNBC viewers thought cops fatally shot more than 500 unarmed black suspects last year. Only 9% percent of Fox News viewers thought so. Fox News viewers (60%) and talk radio listeners (60%) were nearly three times more likely than MSNBC (19%) or CNN (23%) viewers to correctly estimate the number of unarmed black people shot and killed by police in 2020 as less than 50. “There is a strong correlation between a likely voter’s favorite television news outlet and his or her understanding of basic facts about police shootings and homicides involving rifles,” Justin Haskins of the Heartland Institute said of their results. “Compared…
