Student Removed from School Because of Patriotic Symbol!
August 30, 2023
A public charter school removed a boy from school because a pin on his backpack of the Gadsden flag, the famous yellow flag that states that states “Don’t Tread on Me,” was thought to have “origins with slavery.” That flag was associated with the American Revolution. In fact, this claim was so radical that even the progressive Colorado Gov. decided to weigh in and call the flag “a proud symbol of the American Revolution.” To remedy the situation, the school board called an emergency meeting and found that the student could attend school with the flag.
Colorado Gov. Jared Polis, a Democrat, even weighed in to defend the boy, Jaiden.
“The Gadsden flag is a proud symbol of the American Revolution and an iconic warning to Britain or any government not to violate the liberties of Americans,” Polis tweeted in response to the video.
