Parents outrage as school cuts off valedictorian’s microphone as he makes unauthorised remarks about the value of freedom of speech

A Texas high school silenced its Valedictorian’s microphone during his speech when he diverted from his pre-approved remarks and began to speak 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 had threatened to cut him off the day before.

His speech began like any other: ‘I’m honored to stand before you today as the Valedictorian of 2013!’
