The new academic year in the United States, which began on September 8, was marred with a massive verbal attack against President Barack Obama. As usual, the attack was conducted by ultrareactionary radio hosts, who compared Obama to Hitler, Stalin and Mao Zedong, claiming that Obama wanted to infect American schoolchildren with ideas of fascism, socialism and communism. Rush Limbaugh added Saddam Hussein and Kim Jong-il on the list and said that Obama wanted to turn the US youth into Hitler Jugend and Komsomol Organization. Sean Hannity of Fox News called Obama a political pedophile.
All of those remarks were made after Obamaâ€™s 20-minute back-to-school speech.
Republican leaders in Florida and Utah urged parents not to let their children go to school on the first day of the new academic year, when the presidentâ€™s speech was going to be broadcast.
"If you're concerned, keep your kids home for the day,â€ David Bradley, a Republican and member of the Texas State Board of Education told the USA Today.
Fox TV channel urged its viewers not to let Obama turn US schools into Gulags, Nazi death camps and Chinese concentration camps.
