It’s no secret that Democrats hate the Founding Fathers and the nation’s history.
But no one ever thought they would take it this far.
And the Founding Fathers would be horrified at this school’s shocking attack on patriotism.
The pandemic revealed that schools have become Marxist indoctrination factories intent on trashing America.
Jaiden Rodriguez, a seventh grader at The Vanguard School in Colorado Springs, Colorado, was forced to remove a Gadsden flag patch from his backpack because school administrators claimed it was racist.
The yellow Gadsden flag features a coiled rattlesnake with the phrase “Don’t Tread on Me.”
The flag became re-popularized during the Tea Party causing Democrats to rage about it ever since.
Rodgriguez was removed from class once teachers spotted the flag and was interrogated by school officials.
A video shared on social media by Libertas Institute president Connor Boyack showed the encounter between him and the school.
“The reason that they do not want the flag displayed is due to its origins with slavery and the slave trade,” a school official said.
The official said that Rodgriguez would be welcome to return to class if he removed the Gadsden flag patch from his backpack.
Meet 12yo Jaiden who was kicked out of class yesterday in Colorado Springs for having a Gadsden flag patch, which the school claims has "origins with slavery."
The school's director said via email that the patch was "disruptive to the classroom environment."

An email from Vanguard School Director of Operations Jeff Yocum cited the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) as the reason that the flag was labeled an “unacceptable symbol” at the school.
Yocum pointed to a 2016 Washington Post article that reported the EEOC received a complaint about the Gadsden flag creating a “hostile workplace.”
He added that the flag had become a symbol associated with the “Confederate flag and other white supremacy groups.”
The school failed to understand basic American history by falsely connecting it to slavery.
The Gadsden flag dates back to 1775 and the American Revolution.
Outrage poured in after the alleged educational institution’s leadership showed that they’re completely historically illiterate.
Even Colorado Democrat Governor Jared Polis was forced to point out the school’s egregious error on social media.
“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 wrote.
The national attention forced the school to cave and allow the flag to remain on Rodriguez’s backpack after an emergency meeting of the school board.
“The Vanguard School recognizes the historical significance of the Gadsden flag and its place in history,” a message from the school read. “This incident is an occasion for us to reaffirm our deep commitment to a classical education in support of these American principles. At this time, the Vanguard School Board and the District have informed the student’s family that he may attend school with the Gadsden flag patch visible on his backpack.”
The Vanguard School flunked American history by lashing out at an iconic Revolutionary War symbol.
