 UPDATE: Colorado School Board Votes to Allow Young Kid to Wear “Don’t Tread on Me” Patch on School Grounds

The Vanguard School Board of Directors in Colorado Springs has voted to allow a young student to wear a “Don’t Tread on Me” patch on his school backpack.

The Gateway Pundit reported in a now-viral video that the Vanguard School in Colorado Springs told 12-year-old Jaiden (last name withheld) that he had to remove the flag because it has “origins with slavery” and was “disruptive to the classroom environment.” When he refused, the child was dismissed.

“The reason that they do not want the flag reason we do not want the flag is due to its origins with the revolution, slavery, and slave trade,” the school administrator told Jaiden’s mom, Eden Rodriguez.

“It has nothing to do with slavery, that’s like the Revolutionary War patch that was enslaved when they were fighting the British,” Ms. Rodriguez refuted.

The school, not surprisingly, butchers the Gadsden flag’s history. It originated on a warship in 1775 as a battle cry for American independence from British rule. The flag became a symbol for America during the fight for their freedom.

The news gets more asinine, though. The Vanguard School then admitted that the Gadsden flag did not originally have a racial context but claimed without evidence racists had successfully hijacked its meaning.

The school cited the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (USEEOC) which admitted that the flag “originated in the Revolutionary War in a non-racial context,”

“But then said “However, whatever the historic origins and meaning of the symbol, it also has since been sometimes interpreted to convey racially-tinged messages,” Boyack wrote.

They cited @USEEOC, which admitted that the flag “originated in the Revolutionary
