Scott Brown’s profanity laced tirade during an assembly at King Philip High School has been well covered in a number of places. But, what has not been as well covered is his bizarre behavior following the event, and this behavior is perhaps even more indicative of his unsuitability for office than merely launching a swear-filled rant at a room full of high school students.
In the immediate aftermath of the incident, Brown gave different and contradictory stories about how he first learned of the Facebook page that set him off. At various times he claimed that he learned about it from one of his daughters and at others claiming that he learned about it from a student and a parent. Since the Facebook page bothered him enough to send him screaming and swearing into a room full of children, one would think he could keep straight where he heard about it originally.
Anyway, an even more bizarre part of Brown’s behavior was the justification he tried to use to excuse his actions. He actually cited fact that King Philip had taught some kind of sex ed class (and even Catcher in the Rye!) as justifying his use of profanity in school. Hear for yourself:
And he didn’t just use this bizarre excuse once:
Seriously, what in the world is Brown talking about here? What kind of demented mind thinks that a school teaching sex ed justifies him to walk in and start swearing at a room full of students? No matter what they wrote on their Facebook page. He really has issues.
