In the case of President Donald Trump, it seems that his opponents are relying only on their unhealthy obsession with history’s greatest villains to defame the leader of the free world.
As with any other enemy of the left, Trump is apparently Hitler. This is the same ridiculous and tired argument that liberals and democrats make every single time they disagree with a republican politician. If the accusations weren’t so completely predictable, they could possibly carry some weight, but the fact that calling someone “Hitler” in the leftists’ nuclear option, you’d think they’d save it for more important battles.
But, no. The left is completely happy attempting, over and over again, to tag Trump as a fascist, with no other argument other than their pathetic name-calling.
Now, one teacher in New York State has taken the unacceptable name-calling of our President to the next level, and is indoctrinating her 10th grade students with an absurdly biased curriculum.
“A tenth grade teacher at Saratoga Springs High School led a discussion on the rise of fascism during World War Two by referencing President Trump.
‘“It’s total indoctrination,’ said Melissa, the parent who contacted me. She asked that I not use her last name. ‘It’s not their place to indoctrinate our children. It’s their job to teach the facts. Healthy debate is one thing but this definitely crossed the line.’
“The entire lesson plan was posted on the school district’s website. But once I started poking around and asking questions, the lesson was hidden behind a password protected wall.
“’Trump has absolutely no relation to World War Two. There’s no reason why he should be included with Stalin, Mussolini or Hitler,’ the mom said. They are trying to link him to the leaders of that time. That crosses a line.’
“Another graphics listed ‘early warning signs of fascism’:
· Obession with national security
· Religion and government intertwined
· Rampant sexism
· Fraudulent elections
· Obsession with crime and punishment”
Of course, the absurdity of these claims determines that they will be easily dismissed by level-headed adults. The true issue here, as one parent put it, is the indoctrination of our youth into these haphazard patterns of thought. These malleable teens should be coaxed into forming their own opinions about the world around them and the nation that they live in. They should never be forced into one pattern of thought just because that pattern syncs up with the delusions of their teachers.
