Student awarded for Bush-Hitler project

`A Rhode Island high school student won an art award and an A from his teacher for building an abstract scene that juxtaposes Nazi swastikas and quotes by Adolf Hitler with American flags, desert-colored toy soldiers and an image of President Bush.

Jeffrey Eden, 17, insisted he was trying to make comparisons between the U.S.-led war in Iraq and the German blitzkrieg without actually equating Hitler to Bush, the Providence Journal reported.

But his piece, titled “Bush/Hitler and How History Repeats Itself,” immediately prompted a complaint after it was displayed at a store with other winners of the Rhode Island Scholastic Art Awards.’

There’s no doubt about it. This kid is a terrorist.
