Social studies teacher Randall Scott is angry that his employer, Coral Reef Senior High, would not allow him to attend a recent appearance at the Florida school by President Barack Obama.
Scott has attacked Obama on Instagram with posts featuring captions such as:
"A weed smoking Kenyan is your president. And he is in charge of your health care. Seems normal. If your [sic] stupid that is."
On Twitter, Scott proclaimed:
OBAMA IS A P-----.
Scott is complaining that the school violated his “right to free speech” by not allowing him to see Obama after his juvenile attacks, notes the Miami New Times.
“I’m a conservative Republican who uses social media to express my views,” Scott recently wrote on Instagram. “At the last two faculty meetings our principal had strongly advised us not to post anything. As a citizen of this great country I chose to ignore her advise [sic] which now in retrospect seems more like a veiled threat.”
“The next day,” added Scott, “I’m suddenly excluded from a presidential event.”
Before Obama's visit, Scott blatantly ignored a school administration request to stop his angry social media postings, reports Local 10.
“Because of the sensitivity surrounding the allegations regarding remarks that were made — remarks that were reviewed by Miami-Dade Schools Police and the U.S. Secret Service — the matter is currently under review,” School district spokesman John Schuster said in a statement, noted the Miami Herald.
“The size and setup of the event venue did not permit all of the school’s staff and students to attend, and local administrators were required to decide who would attend to represent the school,” added Schuster.
