NH Tea Party: Common Core = Adolf Hitler + Fidel Castro

The latest Tea Party conspiracy theory involves the adoption of Common Core Standards in education. In an email appeal, the New Hampshire Tea Party invoked Adolf Hitler and Fidel Castro to condemn the program that has been endorsed by Nazi sympathizers Mike Huckabee and Jeb Bush:

It’s time ‘conservatives’ got up out of their complacency and realized, as Hitler knew, that those who control education will control the political views of generations to come. In Germany, a core curriculum was introduced, so that the Nazis could monitor, at all times, what was being taught. …

In Nazi Germany, teachers who did not go along with the political views of the government were dismissed. This is already happening in the USA…. Today’s teachers and psychologists are NOT being trained to educate students academically or to counsel and help people cope with their problems, but to influence their political views. Does it sound like we’re becoming Castro’s Cuba? I can tell you from personal experience that we’re already there.
