High School Principal Forced to Apologize for Using ‘Insensitive Language’ on Prom Tickets, Here’s What They Said

This is preposterous.

We live in an unprecedented time of political correctness, a time when people are so deeply and easily offended that anything you might choose to say — and we do mean anything — could possibly be turned around on you and get you slapped with the label of “bigot” or “racist,” even if that couldn’t be further from the truth.

Just how far down the rabbit hole have we gone, Alice?

Far enough that a principal who wrote “party like it’s 1776” on prom tickets has been forced to apologize for his use of “insensitive language.”

The tickets urged students to “party like it’s 1776” during the event at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia.

But that prompted complaints from students who noted “not all communities can celebrate what life was like in 1776,” Principal Dennis Perry said in a letter to the community Friday.

“I am writing to apologize for the hurt feelings this reference caused for members of our school family,” wrote Perry.

“I especially apologize to our African American students, who I have let down by not initially recognizing the inappropriateness of this wording,” he added.

Perry stated that all students attending the event will receive commemorative tickets without the phrase inscribed on them.

How ridiculous is it that a country cannot celebrate it’s own founding because someone somewhere is offended by it? This sort of thing is preposterous on every conceivable level.

Look, we can all agree that slavery was a blight on our nation, a fact that many founders also believed to be true. However, they were limited in their options for being able to persuade people to dump the institution, so many went along with it — which was still wrong — laying the foundation for abolition that came later on.

However, that was 200 years ago. Look at how much better life is for people of all walks of life in America today. It’s time to move on, folks. Time to focus on the future and honor the good that happened in our past.

We must never forget the ugly reality of racism and slavery, but we should allow it to serve as a reminder of why we keep taking steps forward, rather than being a crybaby generation over the usage of a harmless phrase.

WTH!?

Illinois freshman Democrat Lauren Underwood blamed America for the deaths of child migrants at the southern border. More on her below. She’s lied bigly before, too. WATCH: WATCH: After a dispute over comments by Rep. Underwood about the Trump admin. and the deaths of migrant children at the southern border, Republicans voted to have her comments removed from the record. https://twitter.com/MSNBC/status/1131330661367865346?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1131330661367865346&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2019%2F05%2Filhan-omar-accuses-us-of-atrocities-on-border%2F Fellow radical freshman Ilhan Omar (MN) parroted Underwood’s words in a very ugly way.

After Ilhan said gruesome things about the United States as it relates to Venezuela, former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley went after her pretty hard. WATCH: WOW: @IlhanMN says the U.S. has “helped lead the devastation in #Venezuela,” and accuses the U.S. on “bullying” the Maduro regime. Apparently Maduro’s starvation of his people and armored trucks running them over in the streets is not worthy of criticism in her eyes. https://twitter.com/thejcoop/status/1123676951573561345?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1123731527261720576&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F05%2F01%2Fbrutal-nikki-haley-lowers-the-boom-on-rep-ilhan-omar-and-her-support-of-the-maduro-regime%2F Enter Haley: [email protected] the avg Venezuelan adult has lost 24 lbs.

MUST SEE: Pro-Trump Jon Voight Stands Up For the Greatest President Since Abraham Lincoln

BOLD!

Jon Voight don’t care. He’s not intimidated by the far-left wing of Hollywood. He is accomplished. He’s proud to stand for the flag and supports President Trump. In a two-part Twitter video, the actor made it clear that he believes 45 is the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln. From Fox News: Actor Jon Voight expressed his support for President Trump, declaring him “the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln” in a two-part video message posted on Twitter on Friday night. Voight said, “I know that you’ll agree with me when I say that our president has our utmost respect and our love. This job is not easy for he’s battling the left and their absurd words of destruction. … Our nation has been built on the solid ground from our forefathers and there is a moral code of duty that has been passed on from President Lincoln.” He continued, “Don’t be fooled by the political left because we are the people of this nation that is witnessing triumph. So let us stand with our president, let us stand for this truth that President Trump is the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln. God bless America.” PART I: https://twitter.com/jonvoight/status/1132093445743489024?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1132093445743489024&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fwatch-jon-voight-releases-video-to-my-fellow-americans-calling-trump-the-greatest-president-since-abraham-lincoln%2F PART II: https://twitter.com/jonvoight/status/1132094914026770432?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1132094914026770432&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fwatch-jon-voight-releases-video-to-my-fellow-americans-calling-trump-the-greatest-president-since-abraham-lincoln%2F Kelsey Grammer is far from the only conservative star in Hollywood, but like Voight, he’s one of the few willing to talk about his beliefs. It couldn’t have been easy working on “Cheers” with so many far-left radicals like Woody Harrelson and Ted Danson all of those years, but Grammer came out unscathed. Now, the “Frasier” star is taking a stand for President Trump by blasting the past 60 years of “clowns” running the nation. From Daily Wire: One of the few Hollywood conservatives, Kelsey Grammer of TV’s “Frasier,” is singing President Trump’s praises for doing more in 60 years than…
