$54 Grand to Purge OK Sign From Yearbook

Hysteria over the OK sign continues:

A school is Chicago will spend tens of thousands of dollars reprinting its 2018-19 yearbook after several photos contained students posing with a hand gesture which has links to white supremacy.

The “links” consist of a deliberate hoax (Operation O-KKK) cooked up by 4chan pranksters, who wanted to see if they could dupe hysterical liberals into thinking that the familiar “okay” gesture actually makes the letters WP for “white power.” The hoax was so wildly successful that some alt righters now use the sign ironically.

Administrators at the Oak Park and River Forest High School announced it will spend a total of $53,794 to replace the 1,750 copies of “Tabula” after staff found 18 photos of students making an upside down OK hand sign.

Your fingers do not form a WP if you make the gesture upside down. An upside-down okay sign is more likely to be an example of the Circle Game, whereby you make the sign over your crotch and then punch people in the arm for looking at it. This is the probable explanation for the sign made by a Cubs fan who was ostentatiously banned from Wrigley Field.

As usual, the liberal authorities are also upside down:

In a letter sent to the community, Superintendent Joylynn Pruitt-Adams said while the seemingly innocuous gesture could be interpreted as students of “various races, ethnicities, genders, and grades” playing what is known as the circle game, the upside down OK hand sign has also become associated with white nationalism and the far-right.

Joylynn Pruitt-Adams, herself a Person of Politically Preferred Pigmentation, says that the sign might subject sacred Students of Color to trauma, which of course “is simply not acceptable.”

She does make a good point though:

“Publishing the photos in question could not only harm students today but could subject students to potentially a lifetime of questions or penalty from colleges, employers, etc.”

This is true enough. The Thought Police recently concluded an inconclusive 4-month investigation into whether Ralph Northam wore blackface in a picture that appeared in a yearbook 35 years ago. At the time, most would have regarded the blackface as just horsing around. Now, even though few care that Northam has called for babies to be murdered after they have been born, he might have been forced to resign as Governor of Virginia if experts could have proven that was him in the blackface.

Follow the trajectory. Thirty-five years from now, people will probably be executed for having made the OK sign.

On a tip from Lyle.
