Educational Freedom and First Amendment Advocate

Hermon Maine School District is suing me, Shawn McBreairty, a national Educational Freedom and First Amendment Advocate for exposing the hyper-sexualization of minors within this Maine public K-12 school and this is just some of my story during this calling:

Mallory Cook, who was a 9th grade english teacher in Hermon who we exposed, had participated in an anti-Trump video in the fall of 2020 from the Hermon school classroom for Bernie Sanders and the Maine People’s Alliance, breaking several school policies.

She was a member of the Maine Teachers Union (MEA) and now works for them! Her prior tweets, @TeachMaine were protected, thus "secret." She has deleted her account due to her exposure.

She was the paid, faculty advisor for the Gay Sexuality Alliance (GSA) in the Hermon High School.

Soccer, band, chorus, or sex talk after school? You decide kids. But the parents didn't know!?

Their suit claims that they are providing a “free, appropriate public education,” even though 65% of Hermon HS students are below, or well below the State guidelines in math. 

Also property taxes and state taxes are not “free.” 70% of the property taxes collected in Hermon go to the school district. It's not free, nor appropriate!

They claim I’m; hazing her, bullying, stalking, harassing, that I’ve recklessly endangered her mental and physical health, she’s so fearful of my words, that her classroom had to be "relocated," she allegedly missed work and allegedly had to see a counselor due to emotional distress, etc. It's all BS "victimhood," because they can't defend the Truth.

They just want to silence me. The legal arm of the MEA and MDOE, bullies DrummondWoodsum have taken this case on pro-bono, to try and use me as an example. We are up against almost unlimited money fighting against all our First Amendment rights for our opinions, redress of grievances and Free Speech.

They also claim I, “oppose rights for transgender individuals & racial equality…”

That is absolutely not true, I've never spoken out about someone else's sexuality, skin color, religion, etc. It's all about exposing what is happening inside the brick walls of these schools.

I say all the time, we are all equal under God and the law.

The fact is, they want to muzzle me and bring my family to financial ruin.

Please consider a donation to my GiveSendGo account, under Shawn McBreairty, or Paypal, or Venmo so when we get these people into court and open up Pandora’s Box with Discovery, they will pay.

The Town of Hermon, ME was unaware of the suit, even though they pay the bills, before our press release.

If you are not able to stand up on your own, or stand beside us, please stand behind us as we are fighting against almost unlimited financial resources from the woke community.

Help me stay in the fight. For more info check out the Maine Source Of Truth Podcast on Apple, Spotify, Google, iHeart and my social media under @ShawnMcBreairty and please like the Facebook page, Maine Source of Truth and follow the podcast on @MESourceOfTruth on Twitter.

Thank you!

Ps - I'll accept any prayers you wish to send my way!

Maine Journalist Fights Back After School Department Threatens to Sue Over His Article Exposing Trans Bathroom Policy Controversy

March 6th, 2024


Maine Journalist Fights Back After School Department Threatens to Sue Over His Article Exposing Trans Bathroom Policy Controversy 

Hampden, Maine - Shawn McBreairty, a journalist and educational advocate, in conjunction with the Center for American Liberty and Randazza Legal Group, filed a lawsuit against the Brewer School Department, Superintendent Gregg Palmer, Principal Brent Slowikowski, and English Teacher Michelle MacDonald, for violating McBreairty’s First Amendment rights by forcing him to take down an article criticizing the school department’s controversial bathroom policy.  

"Students and parents have a fundamental right to criticize school policies,” Harmeet Dhillon, CEO and founder of the Center for American Liberty, said. “McBreairty’s article shed light on legitimate concerns about the Brewer School Department’s bathroom policy and the silencing of student free speech. The Department’s attempts to silence McBreairty for his reporting are both ironic and a flagrant violation of his First Amendment freedoms. We look forward to reaffirming McBrearity’s right to free speech and correcting this government overreach in court.”  

“Once we go down the path of The Constitution being held in less regard than school policy, our republic is lost,” Shawn McBreairty said. “Parents deserve to know what is occurring behind the brick walls of their child’s school. Never before has it been more unsafe with lower academic assessments and greater tax burdens. The weaponization of our tax dollars used against us must stop.” 

See the exclusive interview with Chaya Raichik via Libs Of Tik Tock here.

“This case is about our basic freedoms. No government entity has the right to shut down journalism on matters of public concern. But that is what happened here. We trust that the Federal Court will uphold our freedoms, not just for Mr. McBreairty, but for everyone,” Marc Randazza, Managing Partner of Randazza Legal Group, said. 


McBreairty published an article regarding a group of students who circulated a petition about a new bathroom policy implemented by the Brewer School Department. The bathroom policy allows students to use the bathroom corresponding to their gender identity, which sparked concerns among students regarding safety and privacy. Those students circulated a petition (see below) to voice their views but were told by school officials this action could be a “hate crime”. 

McBreairty's article entitled “Girl’s Bathrooms are Not ‘Safe Spaces’ When Males are Present” highlighted these concerns and reported on the petition. However, after the publication, school officials threatened McBreairty with legal action if he did not remove the article, citing the violation of school policies and resultant distress to certain school district employees mentioned in the article. 

The lawsuit argues that the actions of the Brewer School Department and its officials constitute a violation of McBreairty’s First Amendment rights to freedom of speech and expression, as well as his right to petition the government. 

McBreairty seeks declaratory and injunctive relief, as well as damages for the infringement of his constitutional rights. The lawsuit also demands a jury trial to adjudicate the claims. 


Maine journalist and parent @ShawnMcBreairty is fighting back after the Brewer School Department threatened to sue him. His crime? Publishing an article exposing the Department’s bathroom policy that endangers children. WATCH:

Fund raising to offset expenses to cover CPAC in Washington DC - Donald Trump!

February 17th, 2024


I always say I am very blessed by the people who have donated to my work and I just want to say, "thank you!"

I'm asking those who donated, or if you know folks who are willing to support my work to please consider a new donation to help offset my upcoming travel expenses.  

Because of your generosity, I was able to attend two massive conservative conventions last year, Turning Point USA's Action Conference and more recently AmericaFest2023.  There I met many new contacts and was able to continue to expose the stories of Maine's educational horrors on a national scale.  

I'm looking for your support to help offset my travel expenses to the CPAC conference in Washington DC, this coming Wednesday, February 21st, 2024, through Saturday, February 24th as a member of the press.  

You can view it live from this link info:

This will be one of the biggest conservative gatherings in our country and the confirmed speaker list is amazing:

President Trump, Vivek Ramiswamy, Dr. Ben Carson, Steve Bannon, Jack Posobiec, Mark Levin, Megyn Kelly, Sebastian Gorka, Kari Lake, Tom Fitton, Kash Patel, Dr. Robert Malone, Brandon Straka (had on my podcast), Kimberly Fletcher (had on my podcast) and President Javier Milei of Argentina, just to name a few!

My expenses will be about $750, I anticipate.  Prior podcast guest and fellow Maine snowmobiler Jon Tigges (also was on the podcast) is graciously allowing me to stay at their place about an hour outside DC.  Because of flight costs being a whopping $800, I've decided to drive down in the #ALLBLACKDODGERAM!! and commute back and forth.  At 16 miles to the gallon (yes, it has a Hemi) gas won't be cheap.  

I have some exciting things coming up in the next few months, one of which is getting Maine Source Of Truth as a tax deductible 501c3 for donations and fundraising, but until then, I sure appreciate your donations here to this page.

If you can pitch in $20, or whatever you feel comfortable with, as I've said before, I won't keep a dime of this, it all goes into fighting for parental rights and educational freedom.  

Maine has a long way to go until more are exposed to these horrors in our K-12 schools and if I don't figure out how to keep the lights on here at the house, I can't continue being out front to get this news out.  I've cost my family dearly over these last 2.5 years doing this essentially for free, but I want our fight to continue.  

Thanks again, from the bottom of my heart.  If you can send this message to anyone else who might be willing, I'd sure appreciate it.

Giving Tuesday - Please help me get to the Turning Point USA AmericaFest!

November 28th, 2023

Today I'm told is "Giving Tuesday" and something I need to do a better job with, which is asking for help from you, or someone you may know.  

People who value stand up fathers who take arrows for others until they find their voice. I'm on the front lines fighting for your rights. For your children's education. For your tax dollars. For our country's future.  

If you can please chip in, or know someone who can, I won't keep a dime.

I'm headed to @TPUSA @TPUSAEvents on 12/15-12/19 to see some people I've interacted with before like @TuckerCarlson @thesamsorbo @reallindseyg & @Riley_Gaines_. I hope to connect with others like @ConceptualJames @REVWUTRUTH & @JamesOKeefeIII and maybe if lucky, @RealCandaceO.

My expenses for this event are roughly $2,000 from flights, hotel stay and misc. expenses.  

@tylerbowyer was gracious again to provide me a press pass so I can interview these amazing patriots they have assembled and I look to continue to expose the K-12 public education related issues here in Maine.

I've taken on this calling for the last 2.5 years essentially unpaid, which was my decision. Being unemployed, I've never been busier helping others in need. Unfortunately, we've not even touched the 90% below the waterline of the iceberg yet.  

I live a blessed life and wake up everyday to an amazing landscape here in Maine along the river where eagles fly by my home. I have no complaints.  

But, I can't do it forever out of pocket and someday, I'll need to satisfy my wife's need for me to "get a real job." 

If you have been exposed to the horrors of Maine and the nation's K-12 public educational system from something I've provided, or you have benefited in any way by our interactions, please consider chipping in.  

I sure would appreciate it. Looking forward to reporting back to you what I see and hear at #AmericaFest2023

Headed to MA for the Natural Law Institute Convention to speak

November 9th, 2023

It's been a crazy couple weeks and after getting my hat handed to me in the local Town Council election because I was going up against millions of dollars of funding...I am headed down to Massachusetts to the Natural Law Institute Conference to speak about K-12 educational horrors.

They are taking care of my hotel bills and food, but if anyone wishes to pitch in for the gas expenses, my Hemi powered Ram would appreciate it.  

Here is the recap of the crazy effort the far-left put up to make sure I could not expose my hometown:

#SaveWomensSports in Maine - Because the hypocrisy in our K-12 public schools is all connected

October 12th, 2023

“If you are kind to the cruel, you will be forced to be cruel to the kind.”

Women's sports in Maine are under attack and are right now being town down.  Spots, medals, trophies, wins and records, along with the history of any female who has run cross country in Maine are all at risk.

At risk by a sophomore boy from the private Maine Coast Waldorf High School, who with the help of the Maine Principals Association, allowed him to be transitioned from a Male To Female Transexual, per their policy.  They approved this nonsense. 

As you know, I won't put one dime in my pocket from what you donate and I never have.  It all goes into exposing the lunacy of things like this in our state and across the country. 

I ask two things, 1) please consider chipping in again, as this fight is going to take funding and 2) please send  the MPA and Mike Burnham your views to demand immediate change.  

Lite him up, do not accept his excuse that this is a legislative issue:

Turning Point USA's Action Conference Was Amazing! Thank you!

August 28th, 2023

Folks, I'm so blessed and I'm remiss in providing an update.  I wrote an entire article on my experience and I have tentative plans on going to AmericaFest in December.

Headed to cover the TPUSA Action Conference July 14th!

July 7th, 2023

I’m going to be covering this amazing event on July 15th and 16th as a member of the press and hope to bring back some great content, messages and interviews!

It is about $1,000 in travel expenses, so if you know anyone who can pitch in, I’d sure appreciate it. 

The speakers list is incredible!

Trump, Tucker, Bongino, Kirk, Bannon and more!

Hermon still suing me, Hampden/RSU22 now in appeal

July 5th, 2023

It just keeps going on and on.  Hermon School Department Superintendent Micah Grant has decided to continue the lawsuit against me to try and make me, "shut up, or pay up" on my assessment of the grooming activities happening at that school.  DrummondWoodsum, the legal arm of the school and some 9 out of 10 schools in Maine, is suing me pro-bono, which means they are willing to forgo any fee collection from Hermon because I'm that big an enemy to the left.  They have nearly an infinite amount of funding to come after me.  

We had to sue RSU22 in Hampden, ME again, as they have now stated that no one in public comment can even mention a teacher's name.  The MEA teachers union doesn't want anyone speaking badly about the grooming activities and horrific educational results coming out of these public K-12 schools.  

We could use your help.  Here is a sneak peak of some things to come, as we have just begun to fight.

Please pitch in...I have another exciting announcement soon to provide and I've been pushing out stories such as these below:



March 7th, 2023

We are going on offense to hold Hermon, ME School Department accountable for their willful FOAA violations and again, trying to stomp on my First Amendment rights.  Read about the 911 call placed on me for simply asking about "public" documents and watch the video here:

Thank you for chipping in, all donations will be used to expose these horrors in our educational system, hold those responsible, accountable and go toward legal filings and court costs.

I won't keep a dime for myself...and when we win, I'll pay it forward to someone else in need.  

Thank you,
