A high school teacher in a California was placed on paid leave after comparing President-elect Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler, the man responsible for the slaughter of 6 million Jewish people.
The teacher has been allowed to return to work after a brief suspension.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Mountain View High School history teacher Frank Navarro, who is described as a Holocaust scholar, reportedly made the comparison “in an effort to show students that the 2016 election is a reflection of the past.”
Or, as others might suggest, Navarro had made the comparison in an attempt to show that “history repeats itself.”
A parent reportedly complained about the parallels Navarro drew, which resulted in the school’s principal and district superintendent asking him to leave on Thursday in what they described as a “time out” as they investigated the incident.
