School Pushes 'Total Indoctrination,' Comparing Trump to Hitler, Mussolini

A group of moms in Saratoga Springs, New York has decided to fight back against what they call the radical left-wing indoctrination that has infested the local school system.

They call themselves the "Conservative Chicks," and one of their leaders contacted me after reading my new book, The Deplorables' Guide to Making America Great Again.

She realized it was time to take a stand after a teacher at the local high school led a classroom presentation on fascism that included a graphic portrayal comparing President Donald Trump to Hitler and Mussolini.

That's right, folks.

A 10th-grade teacher at Saratoga Springs High School led a discussion on the rise of fascism during World War II 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 II. 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":

· Nationalism

· Obsession with national security

· Religion and government intertwined

· Rampant sexism

· Fraudulent elections

· Obsession with crime and punishment

"The fact they posted this on the school's website shows just how brazen these teachers are," another concerned parent told me.

"Liberal teachers need to be reminded it's not okay to use their platform to push their agenda on our kids," the parent added.

Supt. Mike Piccirillo defended the lesson—telling me that "teaching about fascism as a political movement in the context of World War II is part of the curriculum."

So how does President Trump factor into World War II?

"The cartoons you referenced were used as examples to introduce a student debate regarding how some media may be portraying our government as exhibiting the early signs of fascism," he said.

The question posed to students was "Do you believe this is fair and/or accurate?"

So at some point, did the teacher explain to the classroom that such comparisons were not only unfair, but also grossly inaccurate?

The superintendent did not answer that question.

"These teachers are really pushing a liberal agenda on the kids," one of the moms told me.

I commend the Conservative Chicks for taking a stand and embracing the call to action in The Deplorables' Guide
