School Yearbook Prints Quotes From The Leader Of ISIS, Stalin, And Hitler
Ah yearbooks – a tome for every leaver to look back on their time spent at, essentially, a state-sanctioned bully academy, think on the friends they never talk to anymore, and the subjects they can barely remember how to spell.
But yearbooks are also a place for students and teachers to share their wisdom, small nuggets of advice that will go on to shape the future leaders of tomorrow.
This year, the students of Quaker Valley High School in Pennsylvania were pretty miffed to find that the most insightful advice came care of three of the worst despots in modern history; Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler, and Abu Bakr Al-baghdadi, the leader of ISIS.

The three quotations included were Hitler's “Words build bridges into unexplored regions,” Stalin's “Ideas are more powerful than guns. We would not let our enemies have guns, so why would we let them have ideas?” and al-Baghdadi's “Be just: the unjust never prosper. Be valiant. Keep your word, even to your enemies."
Now, to be fair to the producers of the yearbook, the quotes seem pretty solid, but seriously, Quaker Valley, did you not think this might backfire? Try to picture the editor leafing through quotes and thinking, “you know what, Hitler was a pretty bad guy all-in-all, but he had some deep s**t to say about the power of language.”
The school district is now offering refunds on the $69 (nice) yearbook. HAPPY GRADUATION QUAKER VALLEY HIGH SCHOOL!
