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.

Hey who needs the constitution when we have Obama? This is why schools need to be repurposed to actually teach students rather than indoctrinate them in Obama.

All Valedictorians and Salutatorians are told to write their speeches, and told they’ll be ‘okayed’ by the staff. Or not. (And are generally okayed, with a little helpful editing.)

There is a difference between the Valedictorian who chose to say the Lord’s Prayer, and the one going completely off the reservation in this situation.

If that difference needs explaining, I can’t do it for you. Except to say that timing and your audience has a lot to do with it. Hint/hint. However, w/o knowing the details, turning off his microphone may have not been the best choice, either. Who knows? I hate these “half stories.”
