From WorldNetDaily:

A community college student in Massachusetts faces possible disciplinary action for shouting “Remember Chappaquiddick!” during an on-campus speech by Democrat Sen. Edward Kennedy.

Paul Trost, 20, a student at Massasoit Community College in Brockton, Mass., says he was upset by an introduction of Kennedy given by Rep. Stephen Lynch, D-Mass., in which the congressman noted how the long-time senator overcame hardship in life on his way to success.

Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass.

“Lynch said Kennedy had overcome such adversity to get to the place he was, and that’s a bunch of bull,” Trost said of the introduction, which occurred in the school’s student center Tuesday morning.

Just as Kennedy began speaking, Trost was walking out of the room when he shouted, “Remember Chappaquiddick!”

“Most of the crowd gasped,” Trost said. “Then I walked out of the student center.”

I’m amazed that anyone can think good old Teddy has ever known one second of adversity; what a hoot. Of course the honorable Senator’s security goons got right on the intimidation bandwagon, stopping Trost outside the hall, along with campus police, and taking down his information for appropriate punishment for speaking the truth.

Trost also stood up to one of his instructors who called him “ignorant” and declared his actions an “embarrassment to the school.” No decision has been made on a punishment for brave, young Trost.

On the bright side, Trost’s actions caused his fellow students to begin reading up on the Chappaquiddick incident. Most of them had never heard of it.

Was Trost disrespectful? That’s debatable I suppose. I guess it depends on who you think deserves respect. We could ask Mary Jo Kopechne her opinion, but she seems to be unavailable for comment.
