In the latest attempt to smear Republicans, a teacher in a Washington D.C. school district asked her students to use a pre-made Venn diagram to compare the nation’s 43rd president to one of the most notorious political criminals of all time.

The sixth grade class at McKinley Tech Middle School in Washington D.C. was taking part in a school district approved curriculum when they were asked to note both similarities as well as differences between George W. Bush and Adolf Hitler.

Obviously, parents of the students were both shocked and stunned that such an assignment would be given to their young and impressionable children.

The assignment read in part:

Now that we have read about two men of power who abused their power in various ways, we will compare and contrast them and their actions. Please refer to your texts, ‘Fighting Hitler — A Holocaust Story’ and ‘Bush: Iraq War Justified Despite No WMD’ to compare and contrast former President George W. Bush and Hitler. We will use this in class tomorrow for an activity!

According to the parent of a student who chose not to be named, when the school was contacted about the assignment they were informed that the teacher’s assignment was a part of a curriculum that was approved by the D.C. school system.

The assignment was part of a course that was meant to make active comparisons between both the Holocaust and the Iraq wars.

It’s a comparison liberals have been trying to make for years.

In an attempt to besmirch conservatives everywhere, liberals have often tried to make it look like anyone who supported Bush during the Iraqi invasion are blood thirsty war criminals themselves.

The parent who brought the assignment to attention on social media said, “I think trying to compare Adolf Hitler to an American president is just not right, I didn’t agree with Mr. Bush or his policies, but that was over the line.”

Upon further inquiry a spokeswoman for D.C. Public Schools said the two readings were among suggested curriculum the school system had previously approved, but that the texts were not meant to be compared in the manner assigned by the teacher.

“The teacher deeply regrets this mistake, and any suggestion to malign the presidency or make any comparison in this egregious way,” spokeswoman Melissa Salmanowitz said.
