DAILYKENN.com -- A student at Sidwell Friends School in Washington projected a huge swastika during a school assembly. The Obamas' oldest daughter graduate from the school and their youngest daughter is currently enrolled.
The school's website reveals a far-left wing, social-justice bent. Apparently the thought reform and brainwashing isn't comprehensive.

High school students at the elite Sidwell Friends School displayed swastikas during an afternoon assembly Wednesday, the head of the private academy informed families in a letter.
The incident happened during an interactive portion of a presentation about a student-run nonprofit that uses soccer to build community among refugee children in the Washington region, according to the letter. The presenter had students use Kahoot, an online game that allows people to build their own quizzes, to answer questions.
Students responded by using their cellphones, and their answers were projected onto large screens. The projections were quickly turned off when an administrator saw that two of the students' usernames included swastikas. Several other usernames expressed racist views of Asians and Native Americans, according to the letter.
"I am disappointed, dismayed, and deeply sorry that such an incident could take place at our School," Bryan Garman, the head of the school, wrote in the letter to Sidwell families. "Racism and anti-Semitism will not be tolerated in this community."
Garman said the school has launched a "thorough investigation" to identify the students responsible for the racist and anti-Semitic messages.
