    Woman told American flag offensive

    The person that was offended should go back to the country they came from.

    Supervisor Asks Woman To Take Down American Flag Reporting

    Is it okay to show your patriotism at the office?

    For one Arlington woman, the answer was "no" after she hung an American flag in her office just before the Memorial Day weekend.

    Debbie McLucas is one of four hospital supervisors at Kindred Hospital in Mansfield. Last week, she hung a three-by-five foot American flag in the office she shares with the other supervisors.

    When McLucas came to work Friday, her boss told her another supervisor had found her flag offensive. "I was just totally speechless. I was like, 'You're kidding me,'" McLucas said.

    McLucas' husband and sons are former military men. Her daughter is currently serving in Iraq as a combat medic.

    Stifling a cry, McLucas said, "I just wonder if all those young men and women over there are really doing this for nothing."

    McLucas said the supervisor who complained has been in the United States for 14 years and is formerly from Africa. McLucas said the supervisor took down Debbie's flag herself.

    "The flag and the pole had been placed on the floor," McLucas said. But McLucas also said hospital higher ups had told her some patients' families and visitors had also complained.

    "I was told it wouldn't matter if it was only one person," she said. "It would have to come down."

    McLucas said hospital bosses told her as far as patriotism was concerned, the flag flying outside the hospital building would have to suffice.

    Kindred Hospital Corporate Headquarters are located in Kentucky. They have yet to make a final decision on the matter. They have not returned our phone calls for comment.

    The Kindred Hospital Corporation was chosen as Fortune's most admired for 2009. McLucas hopes they'll back her patriotism.

    "I find it very frightening because if I can't display my flag, what other freedoms will I lose before all is said and done," McLucas asked.

    That's ridiculous. If you've got a problem with the Flag, then why'd you come to the country in the first place. Go back to wherever you came from, we wont miss you.
    From my cold dead fingers will you take my freedom. And even then you will have to pry it out with a crowbar.

    I agree 100%!!! People come to this country in search of a better life and then turn around and bad mouth our nation? And now they try to tell Americans that they can't show their patriotism?? If you don't like our flag, then you must not like our country. Why even come here? Go back home freaks!

    Personally, I believe the "Offended Supervisor" from Africa, should have his unhappy little ass back on the first boat back home. Better still, we as Americans, should be kicking his ass back onto a boat. Sheesh! What in the hell have we become in this country?

    Think of it this way. When you travel to a foreign country you are expected to respect their customs and not offend then. When they come over here we are expected to respect their customs and not offend them. WHAT ABOUT OUR DAMN CUSTOMS, WHY CAN'T THEY RESPECT OURS IN OUR COUNTRY INSTEAD OF US HAVING TO KISS THEIR BUTTS!

    This is disgusting, but not unexpected. WE have to start being more vocal about our beliefs. WE have to start complaining and screaming when our rights are violated. WE have to start fighting back. We need to take back the offensive.
    You can have peace. Or you can have freedom. Don't ever count on having both at once.

    If the U.S. flag offends that person why then is she in this country earning wages? I've said it before this country needs to get back to basics. I can't believe we've come to this.

  10. Sounds like this lady must work with one of Obama's family.

    What ever happened to:

    "I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

    The blood of countless brave veterans was spilled in the name of that flag and what it stands for. If it offends you you ARE NOT an American and should be deported immediately!!!!
