MASON, MI. (WILX) — A Mason High School student turned to the police alleging a teacher assaulted her during school hours because she supports President Donald Trump.
Sadie Earegood told NEWS 10 that the teacher involved was Paul Kato.
Paul Kato is the media technology teacher at the high school. Students say that he has not been in school since the alleged incident on Dec. 5, but Mason Schools has not confirmed that.
Earegood claims she was assaulted by Kato when he ripped her “Women For Trump” pin from her shirt.
Earegood is 16 and a junior at the school. She said Kato, started off by saying he didn’t like the pin she was wearing.
“I was just really shocked that a teacher would especially do that,” she said. “He’s talking about the ‘Women for Trump’ pin and I said, ‘that’s fine you don’t have to like it, we can have our opinions.'”
Earegood described a struggle between herself and the teacher where he tried to take the pin off her.
“He grabbed it and I pulled, I tried to push his hand away and he grabbed my shoulder,” she said. “(He) just kind of put his hand there, and then he started pulling more and more and I just started backing up.”
She said the teacher then put the pin upside down on his shirt and stated that it belonged that way. Read the rest HERE.
While this movie mainly deals with First Amendment issues and political correctness at the college level and above, what happened at Mason High School is typical of the type of the assaults on free speech, and in this case, a 16 year old female high school student, exposed in this film. See it now!
The First Amendment and the very idea of free speech are under attack in America today. A growing number of Americans don’t believe you have the right to speak your mind if what you have to say might offend someone, somewhere. They advocate for “safe spaces” in which people won’t be offended by ideas they may find troubling. But is that what America is about?
