Gotta love it when a patriotic 12-year-old seriously schools his ultra-woke teacher to the extent that even the school board sides with him.
That’s right: In Colorado well known for its ultra-liberal population, a 12-year-old boy dared to affix a patch declaring, “Don’t Tread on Me,” to his backpack.
As detailed by the Daily Mail, the statement was originally part of a flag designed by South Carolina soldier Christopher Gadsden, who designed it during the 1770s American Revolution.
Thus, contrary to mainstream media’s beliefs, the flag traces its origins to the American Revolutionary War against the United Kingdom, not to slavery.
Nonetheless, the flag apparently enrages ultra-leftist, and under-educated, teachers, who mistakenly believed that the student’s backpack patch was promoting slavery.
Declaring that 12-year-old Jaiden’s patch was “disruptive to the classroom environment,” one of the teachers demanded for Jaiden to remove the patch, which he refused to do.
In addition, both he and his mother refused to apologize to the school following the demands for the patch’s removal.
It could be assumed that the woke teacher, being a woke teacher, escalated the situation, resulting in a showdown with the school board.
However, the school board ultimately sided with Jaiden, noting his rights to freedom of speech and freedom of expression.
“The Vanguard School Board of Directors called an emergency meeting … The Vanguard School recognizes the historical significance of the Gadsden flag and its place in history … This incident is an occasion for us to reaffirm our deep commitment to a classical education in support of these American principles,” Libertas President Connor Boyack declared.
The school board also permitted Jaiden to return to school “with the Gadsden flag patch visible on his backpack.”
Needless to say, the middle schooler was thrilled, though his leftist teachers certainly were not.
“Today was a good day. The kids were really hyped up. They are putting ‘don’t tread on me’ on their locker. Now they like me all of sudden … But the teachers on the other hand, I got some dirty looks that’s for sure. They are definitely not happy with me,” Jaiden declared.
Yep. Who wants to bet that the angry teachers will likely target Jaiden for a number of different nonsense reasons, following his refusal to play their pitiable games?
It’s frankly encouraging to see younger Americans stand up for their nation and its history, especially when several of the schools and other institutions are trying their best to make sure students grow up disliking their nation.
Including the teen who recently took a stand for his American homeland.
And quite a few others support Jaiden as well, judging from online commentary.
“This is clear evidence of how far our American education system has fallen. When the educators themselves dont know American History, and are even too lazy to look it up (in lieu of just banishing the child), we should all be ashamed,” one individual proclaimed.
“This young man just made a million new friends and probably 25 enemies (the clueless teachers in his school who don’t know anything about history). Net win for Jaiden!” another individual remarked.
Indeed, it is!
