A Texas high school silenced its Valedictorian’s microphone during his speech when he diverted from his pre-approved remarks and instead spoke about the Constitution.
Joshua High School graduate Remington Reimer, who was accepted into the Naval Academy, had his microphone silenced during his speech right after he told fellow graduates that school officials apparently threatened him with the move the day before, MyFoxDFW.com reported.
Colin Radford, a fellow graduate told MyFoxDFW.com that Reimer was “talking about getting constitutional rights taken away from him, and then he said “just yesterday they threatened to turn my microphone off,” and then his microphone went off.”
When are they going to allow people their first amendment rights in our country? What is so wrong about speaking for our Constitution? Since public schools accept federal money right now, if there were any sense in our government, they would cease allowing this school to receive any money for a clear violation of this young man’s rights.
When is the government going to do their jobs and protect the civil liberties of the citizens of this nation? It is disgusting the way students have been treated lately by schools. It is time for the parents to speak out. It is time to get involved calling our representatives, and if they refuse to take action, we must replace them.
