High school recalls yearbooks because of “offensive” quotes like “Build That Wall”

StaffRebel Columnist

A high school in North Carolina has recalled their yearbooks because of “offensive” quotes used by some students such as “Build that wall”.

According to the Charlotte Observer, only 22 yearbooks had been pre-ordered, and only a handful had been distributed before the quotes were discovered by Principal Tonya Waddell.

The Richmond Early College High School posted a statement on Facebook saying, “We regret that this incident has occurred and are currently working with the yearbook’s publisher to make corrections.

As a district, we do not and will not tolerate inappropriate conduct toward any of our students.”

Students will be reimbursed for their books, but the school won't be able to print new copies before the school year ends.

I guess free speech isn’t protected speech. Who was offended by “build that wall”? If they were offended, its their right to take offence.

Another sovietized system which caters to the lowest common denominator. Some maladjusted delusional took offense so all must suffer. Social justice is all about redistributing injustice more widely.

This principal has only one opinion that matters, and that’s her opinion and her Nazi party’s of course, and everything else is garbage and offensive. She’s a fine upstanding example of the one world order that’s corrupt and extremely dangerous (she’s probably a member of the antifa scumbag movement). Waddell and all other teachers and principals like her need to be fired.

How PC of them! Yearbooks have traditionally outlined in pictures and quotes, what has been happening in the graduating year. " Build that Wall" was a very notable part of President Trump’s campaign and voters supported this policy. Removing it from the yearbook doesn’t make this disappear.
