However, the Governor came out in defense of the flag and saved students’ rights to express their political viewpoints and free speech on Wednesday. However, the polis said that let us just let kids have their free expression in schools, and if they want to advocate for their political beliefs, then he thinks that there is something that should be encouraged. Later Polis concluded that they need to work on the ability to disagree better and not jump to questioning people’s motives and said that we need to start having discussions. It was confirmed that the Gadsden flag was created and used by Ben Franklin in the 17th century as a warning to Great Britain to not mess with the freedom of the colonies.
