Kirsters Baish| One New York state high school senior was suspended after defending himself against an attack by an anti-gun student last week. The attack came after a school assembly which showed a CNN clip which was clearly critical of the Second Amendment and its’ supporters. Don’t worry, his attacker paid for his actions.
The father of the boy who was attacked agreed to an interview with MediaEqualizer, a website that was co-founded by a conservative California radio host. During the interview, the father explained how his son was singled-out for having a conservative viewpoint which the school administration did not approve of.
Brian Breault explained that his son, Christian, had just attended his school’s assembly after the school had taken part in the national anti-gun walkout.
During the assembly, the students viewed CNN coverage of a Parkland, Florida school shooting survivor giving a speech which was clearly against pro-Second Amendment supporters. The student openly blamed the NRA and its supporters for the 17 victims of Parkland shooter Nikolas Cruz, even though he had no affiliation with the NRA.
The speech was so extreme that the superintendent for the school district apologized in writing for showing it later. It wasn’t surprising that when a pro-Second Amendment student shared his opinion, the liberal students attacked him.
Conservative Tribune reported:
In a Facebook post, according to PJ Media, Breault wrote that his son told a school nurse about his objections to the video, and another student overheard.
“Another student not involved in the conversation threatened him for his view on the video going as far as telling the school nurse that he would punch Christian in the face if he didn’t stop defending the NRA,” Breault wrote. “The nurse told the student he could not say that and no further action was taken.”
Well, no further action was taken at the time. But that same student attacked Breault’s son later in the day, Breault said.
“Christian defended himself, punching the kid in the jaw, causing him to fall to the floor,” he told PJ Media. “The kid got up and threw an object at Christian, which he deflected.”
The student who attacked Christian was given a three day suspension. Christian was suspended for a single day.
Brian Breault explained to MediaEqualizer, “I spoke to the principal of the school who was very combative and condescending to my concerns over keeping Christian safe.”
Breault explained that he was concerned about Christian’s disciplinary record impacting his future in the Navy, but it goes deeper than that. He told PJ Media, “I personally feel my suspension shows the failure in our society and schools. My constitutional rights were violated by this student, and I defended my rights and myself from him.” He explained that Christian’s suspension “teaches our young that they cannot defend themselves without being punished.”
An apology doesn’t change the fact that this is exactly what the school was teaching these kids, and they knew it.
