In the first place, how would you like your kids to taught by this guy? History teacher Randall Scott claims his “rights to free speech” are violated by being barred from an Obama appearance at his place of business, Coral Reef Senior High. This is after he was asked by his superiors not to post about the president on social media in the days preceding his appearance. He’s stated he “would rather dine in Hell with Satan” than shake the president’s hand, and described himself as a “virulent anti-Communist and hater of Obamanism.”

Scott told his side of the story in a letter he posted on Instagram. “I’m a conservative Republican who uses social media to express my views,” he wrote. “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,” he continued, “I’m suddenly excluded from a presidential event.”

Miami-Dade County Public Schools spokesman John Schuster said in a statement that “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.”

The Miami New Times corroborated Scott’s claim, writing that Coral Reef Senior High Principal Adrianne Leal had specifically warned faculty not to post about Obama on social media in the days before the event, and that Scott was excluded from the presidential appearance because he steadfastly refused to do so…
