A Florida Social Studies teachers claims his right to free speech was violated when school officials barred him from attending an appearance by the President. Randall Scott made several tweets disparaging to the President. He said he’d rather ‘dine in Hell with Satan’ than to shake Obama’s hand, and that he is a ‘virulent anti-Communist and hater of Obamanism.’ Miami-Dade County Public Schools decided that perhaps he shouldn’t attend.
Since he was excluded from the presidential visit by school administrators and not by Congress or the Federal government, his Constitutional right to free speech was not abridged. He still has the right to say what he wants, and he is free to attend an assembly to do it. He just can’t be a part of the school’s delegation. His employers have the right to include or exclude anyone they want.
And another thing: If he is a ‘virulent anti-Communist’, why is he working for a public school? Doesn’t he know that public schools are created by socialism? That his salary is paid for by The People, and that public schools exist for the betterment of society and to promote the general welfare? He’s either stupid, or a hypocrite.
I think this guy needs to be sacked. Schools are supposed to be institutions of learning. Social Studies is ‘the integrated study of the social sciences and humanities to promote civic competence’; not an indoctrination camp for teaching hatred and spreading falsehoods. He should not competent to teach the course, and so should be fired for incompetence. And firing him would be doing him a favour. The ‘virulent anti-Communist’ would be freed from the chains of Socialist servitude.
The hilarious thing is that he doesn’t want to have anything to do with Obama, but he’s pissed as hell that he can’t go to the party. ‘I would rather dine in Hell with Satan than to be at the appearance!’ ‘OK, you’re not going.’ 'What? :eek: :mad: ’
