Even the First Amendment comes under attack when it is related to the Second. Loudoun County School District administrators in Virginia requested that 16-year-old Elizabeth Najjar remove a video she posted to Facebook wherein she criticized the school system for alleged liberal bias.

Speaking out, Najjar stated in her video that not all students supported the March For Our Lives, a demonstration that occurred March 24 in Washington, D.C., in response to the Marjory Douglas Stoneman High School shooting that took place Feb. 14 in Parkland, Fla. Personal examples of school politicking and policing of First Amendment rights—including wearing a hat that bears a gun manufacturer’s logo and having her bag searched after she was seen in possession of a magazine that featured police and pro-gun messages—were also cited.

The school district released a statement that said the video was reported by other students because Najjar targeted a transgender student and claimed her classmate’s viewpoint held more weight.

“This had nothing to do with the Second Amendment,” Wayde Byard, the school district’s public information officer, told Red Alert Politics. “The video … mentioned a minor student as transgender by name without the student’s knowledge or permission. Several students brought this to the attention of the administration. The guidance staff mentioned to [Najjar] that it might be wise to pull the video from public view and edit out the student’s name.”

In response to the positive feedback from her video, Najjar will host a Facebook show entitled “The Fight For Freedom,” and she plans to form a Students For Trump Club at her high school.
