AP History Textbook Rewrites the Second Amendment


An AP history textbook has rewritten the Second Amendment. Here’s the Constitution’s wording:

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

Here’s the AP history textbook’s reworking of the text:

 “Second Amendment: The people have a right to keep and bear arms in a state militia”AP_Second Amendment

The revision interprets the Second Amendment in a way that concludes that the only way it’s constitutional to “keep and bear arms” is for a person to be part of a “state militia.” United States History: Preparing for the Advanced Placement Examination gets it backwards as the following article points out:

“The 2nd Amendment says that a militia is necessary to protect a free State, so in order to be able to have a militia, the citizens have a natural right to keep and bear arms and the government cannot infringe on that right.

High School history textbooks have been used as propaganda props for decades. Mel and Norma Gabler scrutinized textbooks and wrecked havoc on the textbook industry for nearly 50 years. They got involved in reviewing textbooks when they found factual errors in their 14-year old son’s textbook, in particular, the absence of the phrase “under God” from the text of Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address.

Further study showed interpretive bias on economic, political, and religious subjects. Their most famous find was a 1973 fifth-grade American history textbook that devoted more attention to Marilyn Monroe than to George Washington. Norma Gabler remarked, “We’re not quite ready for Marilyn Monroe as the mother of our country.”


In 2001, Time magazine reported that their “scroll of shame” of textbook mistakes since 1961 was 54 feet long. In the early 1990s, Texas fined publishers about $1 million for failing to remove hundreds of factual errors the Gablers had found in 11 history books. An example: A textbook said that Senator John C. Calhoun of South Carolina had supported the tariff of 1816. He opposed it.[1]

The public schools have done a great job in shifting worldview thinking from theism to humanism right under the noses of parents who extol the virtues of America’s government education system. Consider how some textbooks handled the subject of religion in the founding of America prior to the Texas TEKS guidelines.

One elementary school social studies book has thirty pages of material “on the Pilgrims,” Paul Vitz writes in his book on textbook censorship, “including the first Thanksgiving.”

“But there is not one word (or image) that referred to religion as even a part of the Pilgrims’ life. One mother whose son is in a class using this book wrote . . . that he came home and told her that ‘Thanksgiving was when the Pilgrims gave thanks to the Indians.’ The mother called the principal of this suburban New York City school to point out that Thanksgiving was when the Pilgrims thanked God. The principal responded by saying ‘that was her opinion’ — the schools could only teach what was in the books!”[2]

I suspect that the teaching of America’s Christian history has not improved much since Vitz did his study. School boards and textbook writers can’t hide the truth any longer. As Russell Shorto has to admit the following in his New York Times article “How Christian were the Founders?”:

“There is . . . one slightly awkward issue for hard-core secularists who would combat what they see as a Christian whitewashing of American history: the Christian activists have a certain amount of history on their side.”

What’s true on rewriting what’s true about religion is spilling over into every area of education.

    It is impossible to know anything about one’s conscious understanding

    and reactions unless the following question is posed, Do you know who

    you are? Here lies the issue in trying to govern one’s self, much less

    accepting an opponents view. Democrat. Be side this inquiry is less.

    Republican. Both double-jointed Homo Sapiens gather the self-sane

    presumption, two opposites, use Gerrymander in attempting to force

    govern select fools; that all-in-all, through deception, presume to be

    decent in the serving the total idea of national government.


    Many people, humanoids or politicians, spend their whole

    feather-bedding careers with out actually understanding the psychosis of

    a non-governing perception that turns them on. This aristocratic class

    gets lost through an official one-ring carpet bagging royal circus, as

    robots of leisure at tax payer’s expense; life moves on in bowing down

    to a supposed government that has never existed. BUDGET. This monetary

    rule is actually the governing unit over mankind since the beginning of

    civilizations– learning the method to be ruled, or to be ruled over, by

    their tribal nations, and chattel slavery’s existence and struggle

    through ions of time were during an an ancient struggle. KINDLY-DO



    Incidentally, in the abstract no reasonable explanation can be

    discovered regarding true rule by the few when robbery by one class

    takes the liberty to cove their tracks. Now this system is

    democrat/republican fronting for the budget rule. From Pharaoh of Egypt

    unto the many judges and kings over ancient Canaan and from thence to

    all Presidents of our United States absolutely reverses Adam’s passing

    to all mankind free speech. We have thought control in America; and even

    in the beginning of Genesis, ( Bible ), we find no evidence of a

    sustained government-something to think about. Christ recognized no

    formal government. Like said, no governments–organized brutality! All

    mischief and plunder under political prostitution!

    When will our national manhood rise up from a twin two-party Satanically
    led machine of misled fools and office holding political renegades. No
    there is no conspiracy, when any group iron-handedly wields a whip
    composed of total marxian dictatorial

    universal socialism via dumbing down our republic’s thinking, as a sewer
    outlet, through a hellish machine of political gangsters wearing
    identical gloves, both left and right, actually choking down a nation’s
    avenue of thought through a commie-fed universal media, being put
    forward on our national continent, America, under pseudo intellectualism
    feeding from Karl Marx’s

    Communist Manifesto.

    Dead men tell no tales. Many
    people think that 911 was partly an inside job. We know that WW 1 was an
    inside job by the then President Woodrow Wilson; and yes, WW11 an
    inside job. Do not forget Korea–the late Dean Acheson of the State
    Department made sure that this nation was looted to satisfy China and
    Red Russia. Go a little further and examine the Bush gang–father and
    son. And the politically looting of Third World nations clearly being in
    the eagle’s eye of The International Monetary Fund. It would be well to
    watch the State Department, in sending ambassadors to alien boundaries,
    while previously marrying the Devil for a valise filled with torts, in
    selling America short, in agreeing to above and under the table
    treaties,as palmed off look-a-likes,on both sides of an equation, while
    Satan laughs up his sleeve. It is time to remove the idle trash that
    hangs around the State Department!

    The original beginning point for the so named Gulag, that most people
    are caught in, is because well informed citizens have no comprehension
    of Article 6, Sec, 6 of the Constitution. Clearly, this section makes it
    plain that all fifty states are nothing less than provinces of mother
    England’s indirect rule under treaty obligations. The Rothschild’s
    worked behind the scenes with specific founding fathers, in planting the
    Treaty clause, with both Tories and Whigs. The overthrow of our
    Republic was well thought of in advance. International financiers wire
    pulled this deal off after the Constitution was ratified, and the treaty
    weapon was inserted. We can scream Gulag as we please, but a global
    religious war is the third rail that political ****** avoid, Adding to
    this insult, was creating a nine justice membership to the Supreme
    Court. In essence, one plant like Kegan can break a tie, and compel
    three hundred million Americans what to do. Communism is thought
    control. Gulags are adjuncts of pseudo political ******. One never bites
    the hand that feeds them. Bread from a two-party feeding trough is
    better than plowing some field through sweat and brawn, while using a
    mule’s behind as a compass. Shakespeare and Machiavelli were never
    proclaimed patriots. Both pseudo political whoring parties and their
    being controlled by a national syndicate of prospective social
    engineering have be -damned America, to the point of no return. The mass
    media is in alliance with traitors within the highest echelons of
    national government. The only real Gulag is the invisible rule through a
    Congress that has no gall to break with the approaching collectivism,
    of an ever encroaching national nihilism, that has been subconsciously
    ingrained via alien invasion, through higher education. We have may
    horses in waiting, but not one Patrick Henry to spread an alarm, nor
    Thomas Paine to openly pulpit the rights and duties of the elected, to
    proclaim freedom for America, and to hell with any Oriental perceptions
    that manage to spread openly amongst a people of whom are blinded by
    political traps, to lead men back into mental slavery–THOUGHT CONTROL

    These words were spoken in the past in Jerusalem. It has always remained a mystery, as to what specific
    nation was involved two thousands years in the past, because there were several nations living in Judea at
    that time. So it must be compromised, that it must have been the powers that be, or a tribal element that was
    afraid that the Roman officials might learn of some secretive system, that was contrary to well organized
    governments. At that time, local and allied foreign banksters held the local population in physical and religious
    bondage. All religions require money. Hundreds of years later we discover that gold is the master servant over
    the near and far East, Europe, Asia, and the Americas. In fact. the ill assumed and unrecognized nation living in fear,
    most likely have subtle ties to the hundreds of religious functionaries strewn across America.

    The late William J. Bryan, related that America is being crucified upon a cross of gold. However, this is a mis-
    nomer, for the Federal Reserve controls America. Well, actually, the Bank of England drives the nails into this
    artificial coffer of gold, as it is the center from whence monetary global financial empire rules the world.
    Once, It was a good man that walked the gutters of Jerusalem numbering years past, moving amongst pro-
    ductive folks, of whom produced all real wealth. It was the local bankster that held the state’s populace through
    an oppressive hierarchy of combinated nations, creating an open market for the merchants under police powers
    in protecting an unjust interest system. The late Mark Twain, openly wrote that it was the bankers that slaughtered
    a humble man that loved freedom, and justice for all nations of mankind. This grand but grave personality
    claimed that He was doing the will of His Father.

    From that day on, when an an invisible society made an alliance amongst them selves, it was resolved
    that an oath be put forward that an octopus of a money-powered monster would expend it’s tentacles
    over the face of the then known world. Hundreds of years later this octopus moved into Europe in setting
    up an invisible society known as the ( nobles ), or nobles. This political outlet existed in the early eighteen
    hundreds. Decades later, under the Concert of Europe. In earlier nineteen hundreds international finance moved
    in allotting the money supply of specific nations that fell into the universal web of financial master minding.

    Hedging forward, The League of Nations took root and disappeared, as the banksters moved forward the United
    Nations Organization became a tool and weapon for International finance in nourishing the seeds of Bolshevism.
    Theodore Roosevelt and Winston Churchill were merely tools, puppets, leading America into monetary rule over
    France, England, Germany and the Netherlands. America is at a junction of political whoredom’s abetting that
    our nation’s super structure will better be served by Oriental fundamentalism’s ties to the Rothschild wealth
    of which is approxamately sixty-five percent of the earth’s riches. Here we have high treason for our so-called
    representatives. of whom serve that nation that had taken an oath to survive.

    Extended research brings to light the ( Pilgrim Society ), a secret invention of the late Cecil Rhodes in England.
    Rhodes wanted a ( One World) government. This man’s intentions run back to 1776, when Adam Weishaupt sat
    up the Illuminati. another one-world order. And this goes on and on forever with such organizations running

    throuout America. It is expedient that our nation composing the
    original colonies wake up and know about the World Bank of England and
    its ties to international finance, IF WE DO NOT, OUR NATION SHALL BECOME
