Christensen was suspended by Robert McQueen High School for calling his congressman during the walkout and swearing. Over the phone, Christensen called for banning bump stocks and raising the minimum age to buy a gun. But he also told the staffer that Congress needed to “get off their f***ing asses” and take action.
Robert McQueen High School was not amused when Representative Mark Amodei’s office notified them of Christensen’s phone call, CNNreports. He was suspended for two days for “disrespectful behavior/language” and barred from being class secretary/treasurer.
Representative Amodei said he had “absolutely” no problem with “this guy exercising his First Amendment rights,” but that his congressional staffer also had free-speech rights to report the language.
“I personally thought that I had the political privacy to make a phone call to any representative and tell them how I feel,” said Christensen to KOLO, adding that he understood “that’s not maybe the wording” he should have used. He maintains “it’s still [his] right to use that word.”
Christensen’s parents are on his side. “I don’t encourage my child to go and curse at someone...I believe that something needs to be done and maybe somebody does need to get off their butt and do something,”
