There are a lot of people making out George Washington to be something he is not, based on this quote:
Oy vey, Mr. President.
Well, the Washington quote is from a letter to Edmund Pendelton, here is the primary source (and I do mean primary, it has pictures of the letter itself):

“Where this has been the policy (in Connecticut for instance) the prices of every article have fallen and the money consequently is in demand; but in the other States you can scarce get a single thing for it, and yet it is with-held from the public by speculators, while every thing that can be useful to the public is engrossed by this tribe of black gentry, who work more effectually against us than the enemys Arms; and are a hundd. times more dangerous to our liberties and the great cause we are engaged in.”
As you can see, George Washington was not literally Hitler.
In fact, you ‘mericans can thank rabbis Washington, Jefferson, Franklin and their Enlightenment philosophy for the Jews you have now c|:^)
From the Declaration of Independence:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.
George Washington Letter to the Hebrew Congregation in Newport, Rhode Island, 18 August 1790:
May the Children of the Stock of Abraham, who dwell in this land, continue to merit and enjoy the good will of the other Inhabitants; while every one shall sit in safety under his own vine and figtree, and there shall be none to make him afraid. May the father of all mercies scatter light and not darkness in our paths, and make us all in our several vocations useful here, and in his own due time and way everlastingly happy.
He was not referring, as one commenter pointed out, to Christian protestants.
