A Bay Area history teacher was suspended from his job after he showed the similarities between the rise of Donald Trump and Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler!

Frank Navarro of Mountain View High School was put on paid leave after a parent complained about the lesson. The history teacher, who is an expert in Holocaust studies exclaimed:

“This feels like we’re trying to squash free speech. Everything I talk about is factually based. They can go and check it out. It’s not propaganda or bias if it’s based on hard facts.”

Navarro says that the school district were unwilling to reveal the contents of the complaint against him, nor point out which parts of his lesson plan the parent found so distasteful.

The teacher is said to have made parallels between Hitler’s persecution of Jewish people and the type of rhetoric Trump has used to talk about Muslims, Latino immigrants and African Americans. He revealed:

“I said (to school officials), ‘I’m not pulling these facts out of my hat. It’s based on experience and work and if I’m wrong, show me where I’m wrong.’ And there was silence.”

Navarro, who is himself Mexican American, explained:

“I’ve had Mexican kids come and say, ‘Hey, Mr. Navarro, I might be deported.’ Is it better to see bigotry and say nothing? That’s what the principal was telling me (during our conversation). In my silence, I would be substantiating the bigotry.”
