A 65-year-old American history teacher, Frank Navarro has been suspended for comparing US president-elect Donald Trump to Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler during a post-election lesson with his students at the Mountain View High School, Bay Area, California.
The veteran History was reportedly asked to go home during the school hours after the school administrative team received a complaint email from a parent about the statements he made in the class on Thursday, November 17, 2016.
While explaining the situation to New York Daily News on what led to his suspension, Navarro who has taught at the Mountain View High School for forty years said:
“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, I had a short lesson paralleling Hitler with Trump when Hitler was running from 1930 to 1933. Hitler said he would make Germany great again, and Trump said he would make America great again.”
