Mountain view High SchoolA California history teacher was placed on leave Thursday after a complaint over a lesson where he compared President-elect Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler.

The Monterrey Herald reported that Frank Navarro was asked to leave in the middle of the day after a parent sent an email to Mountain View High School expressing concerns over the comparison. The area’s Superintendent Jeff Harding confirmed the incident, but refused to detail the complaint.

Navarro has taught at Mountain View for 40 years. He’s an expert on the Holocaust. He told the paper that school officials didn’t disclose what the parent’s complaint was. They also declined to review the lesson plan.

“This feels like we’re trying to squash free speech,” he said. “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.”

The complaint comes in the midst of the uproar over Trump’s Election Day victory over Hillary Clinton. The Democratic nominee won the state’s 55 electoral votes.

    FIRE THIS IDIOT. DO NOT ALLOW SUCH PEOPLE TO TEACH OUR CHIDREN. HE IS ONE OF THE PROBLEMS THAT WE HAVE NOW. WE ALLOW THESE IDIOTS TO BRAIN WAS OUR CHILDREN AND IT SHOULD NOT BE. FIRE HIM NOW.

    FROM A KOREAN WAR VET, 1951/53, A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT, BUT MOST OF ALL A CHRISTIAN. I VOTED FOR TRUMP.

    PRAY FOR PRESIDENT ELECT TRUMP EVERY DAY. HE WILL NEED US TO OVERCOME THE EVELS OF THIS WORLD.

    WE NEED TO MAKE JESUS CHRIST FIRST FOR THIS COUNTRY AND DO NOT BELEIVE EVERYTHING YOUR HEAR. KNOW THE FACTS.

    NOW IS THE TIME FOR ALL TAX EXAMPT ENTIES, SUCH AS THE MASONIC LODGE, KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS AND ALL CHRISTIAN CHURCHES TO GET OUT IN THE OPEN, FIND OUT ABOUT PEOPLE AND ADVISE THEIR PEOPLE THE TRUE STORY SO THAT THEY CAN VOTE FOR THE BEST.

    THIS IS WHAT 20 MILLION AMISH PEOPLE DID. 30 LEADERS MEET IN OHIO WITH 3 MILLION AND VOTED THAT ALL WOULD VOTE FOR TRUMP.

    THIS IS WHAT GAVE HIM OH, PA, MICH, FLA, HELPED IN IND AND NEARLY GAVE HIM VA.

    FOLKS IF YOU DO NOT THINK GOD WAS INVOLVED IN THIS ELECTION, I SUGGEST YOU THINK AGAIN.

    TRUMP HAS PROMISED THAT HE WILL REPEAL THE JOHNSON DEAL THAT WOULD TAKE AWAY YOUR TAX EXAMPTION IF YOU TALKED POLITICS.

    IF WE HAVE NOT BEEN SET UP AT A TRY OF A MUSLIM TAKE, WHY ARE THERE AND MINIMUM O 37 MUSLIMS CAMPS IN THE USA, (5 IN N. VA. CLOSE TO DC) AND A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE, TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO, TAKE OUR GUNS, BRING IN THOUSANDS OF YOU MUSLIMSE. GET READY FOLK. PUT PIG GREASE ON YOUR BULLETS.

    A LOT OF CHRISTIANS VOTED FOR THIS, GOOGLE, THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015 AND YOU WILL SEE WHAT I MEAN.

    I have to question these nuts who think having a “captive” audience of kids where they can degrade, rant, and spew their own political views is protected and considered educational…but the kids, their parents cannot reciprocate? Screw liberals.

    Hey pendajo navarro: Who in the hell do you think you are to try, judge and condemn a person before any trial. Have you not heard of “innocent until proven guilty” or did you elect yourself as judge and jury?
    I could say bad things about how you are probably teaching history but my only comment is what I wrote above.

    Want to win 55 electoral votes easily; campaign in calfornication and say “I am for ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. Automatic win. Nothing else needs to be said and spend little money – put it as graffiti and ask it be spread throughout the state. Better do it in Spanish though so it can be understood.

    And idiots like these should be barred from teaching, especially when they get it backwards. Look in the mirror, if anything is Hitler like, it is you. It is your kind that espouses to National Socialism, “liberal” or so called liberal progressive, is just a cover name for Nazism, but they are too silly for even the educated among them to see what is right in front of their eyes.

    You are no expert if you think trump is like Hitler. Sounds more like you are on the communist agenda which is known for spreading hate and propaganda because you didn’t get your way. A democracy placed Trump in office now and stopped a coup from happening. Wake up morons
