Debbie McLucas Asked to Take Down American Flag at her Place of Work Kindred Hospital in Mansfield



Read the following lesson in patriotism that a Texas hospital received. Let this be a lesson to all. Stand up for what’s right  and stand up for your country, unless you want no country left to stand for. Since when has the American flag ever been offensive?


The day that you cannot have an American flag at your place of work, especially when there are brave American men and woman dying every day to protect our freedoms, is the day we best just pack up shop.

Debbie McLucas was asked to remove the American flag that she put up in her office at the Kindred Hospital in Mansfield, TX prior to Memorial Day. Seems normal enough. Celebrating and commemorating the men and woman lost and the sacrifices they made so that we might be free. However, believe it or not one of the supervisors complained that the flag was offensive.

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. I have a suggestion to this supervisor, GO BACK TO AFRICA! To borrow a phrase, love it or leave it. If you actually have an issue with an American flag being displayed in America, you not only need to leave, you need to be deported. The American flag is the symbol under which people wish to live and earn a living. The PC BS must come to an end, NOW!!!

One person complained and the higher ups were going to make Debbie McLucas take down her American Flag display. Listen to the insanity and patriotism coming from management.

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

“I find it very frightening because if I can’t display my flag,” McLucas asked, “whatother freedoms will I lose before all is said and done?”

The response from Kindred Hospital after the outrage when the story went national? They of course reversed their initial decision and allowed the employee to display the America flag. As it turns out not only did the hospital allow the flag, no one ever complained about the size of the flag in the first place.

      And….there you have it. File this story under the WTF category—I almost couldn’t believe what I was reading. If that were to have been my Supervisor on that particular day–damn sure I would have been fired as I would have not been as polite as Debbie McLucas and quickly would have told him to stick it where the sun doesn’t shine. In addition, I would have told these IDIOTS that my Lawyer would be in touch with Management. ABSOLUTELY ENRAGING!

      She should be forced to LEAVE this country immediately, just like the Prez not wearing his pin and turning his back on the flag!

      I actually drove by that hospital yesterday and couldn’t figure out what was going on. There were tons of men/women lining the road out in front of the hospital. They were all holding and waving these enormous flags, with signs that read Kindred is against Old Glory, or something like that anyway. I’m glad to finally know exactly what is going on, especially since my husband is one of those men that fight for our country everyday. He has been in the Army for 19yrs. and has proudly served many times in the war. I won’t soon be going to that hospital, nor will anyone I know. Thanks again for writing about this, I hadn’t yet seen what it was all about till I read here.

      Interesting. An African immigrant shows up to take advantage of what the country has to offer, then begins to make policy on how to disallow real citizens their desire to express their patriotism for that same country that more than likely saved his sorry ass.

      Want to bet that this ’14 year guest’ is an Obama supporter? And a coward to boot.

    5. Rusty Bridges on May 28th, 2009 1:09 pm

      Just another parasite setting up a law suit when the flag isn’t taken down. Go back to africa and see if you find it offensive when someone from another tribe cuts off a body part for having opposing views.

      I was in the U.S. Coast Guard in the early 80′s and painted the Confederate flag on a workbench. I had a couple of complaints so I simply stated it was a part of our American history, in the end they decided to let it slide. Good to know that we still have some freedoms in the U.S.

    7. SUPER DAVE on May 28th, 2009 2:25 pm

      seems the whole country is ass kissing these non-Americans. all the claims of African American is a bunch of bull shit.
      you are either African or American and whichever one you choose you need to carry your ass back there.
      you are in America now so act like an American, respect our flag ,or crawl your ass back to where you claim to be from. this goes for obama too !

      Pastor David Jones and his wife Mary have been told that they cannot invite friends to their San Diego, Calif. home for a bible study — unless they are willing to pay tens of thousands of dollars to San Diego County ….

      I agree, if you don’t like the AMERICAN flag get the F out! This “African” supervisor does need to get deported, but first FIRED from the hospital. I wish I had her name because she should have her citizenship denounced. If she doesn’t like America why did she move here?

    10. dennisintn on May 28th, 2009 6:26 pm

      roflmao, wendy, thank you so much for your post. my bp just went back to normal.

    11. Michelle Smith on May 28th, 2009 7:38 pm

      Why do we let these anti-American a-holes tell us what to do?

      I’m all for that saying if you don’t like it then leave, no one is forcing you to stay. By all means if you are offended then go somewhere that will kiss your butt like you want.

      This is America and we speak English and we proudly display the American Flag.

      Now STFU and go back from whence you came.

    12. chica on May 28th, 2009 9:56 pm

      we need to stand for our rights to display the flag.
      we are in the united states, our soldiers are dying by the hundreds daily to fight for the old red white and blue.

    13. dee on May 29th, 2009 4:50 am

      This is an outrage, I am honored to tell each and everyone of you my husband just received his Retirement Flag for serving 23 years in the US Army, fighting for the rights of even this idiot…

      It was an amazing moment when he received his flag and we will graciously and honorably display it each and every day of our lives…whenever and where ever we choose…

      Living over sea’s has truly made me love my country more and more …send this Dumb A$$ and any and all who was offened to some really F’d up place hmmmmmm Iraq, Iran how about North Korea, matter of fact I’ll buy them a one way ticket…

      God Bless America…is all I can say

    14. SUPER DAVE on May 29th, 2009 7:18 am

      just read that the administration, after “real American citizens” lined the roads outside the hospital, allowed her to put the flag back. they said that the size of the flag was offensive ????
      no “foriegner” should have any say whatsoever about our flag and needs to keep her nappy head mouth shut and swim back to swahiliville and do something to help her own people

    15. Brenda in Virginia on May 29th, 2009 7:54 am

      I agree with every post I just read. What’s pathetic is if a person chooses to fly the American Flag unside down, or burn it…it’s their right as freedom of speech….but to have one right side up that isn’t burning is offensive?

      I fear we are going to lose our freedoms soon if we don’t stand up to communist Obamanation and his minions. They know EXACTLY what they are doing, please don’t any of you be fooled. They’re trying to destroy America from within because they hate what it stands for.

      I have a bumper sticker that reads: If you MUST burn our flag, PLEASE wrap yourself in it first.

    16. St Stephen on May 29th, 2009 8:17 am

      We not only have the duty of honoring and fighting for our flag overseas, we also have the obligation of fighting for Old Glory right here at home.

      This “supervisor’s” statement to my mind sounded like an act of aggression against the flag.

      At any rate, i have my suspicions that it was an African supervisor as it might have been the person that talked to her about it and just lied to her that it was someone else.

      I may be wrong, but a more complete and thorough investigation needs to be done and the guilty party must answer for his or her asinine and offensive complaint. We do not need that type of worker employed when there are millions of patriots out of work eager for a chance at employment.

    17. Jack Hammer on May 29th, 2009 8:44 am

      The flag should have been taken down. This is at a work place, not home. If it offends someone, it should be taken down. The lady next to me does not like my nudey calendar, so she asked that I take it down. Enough said.

    18. Scott on May 29th, 2009 10:44 am

      #17 you’re an idiot. comparing a flag which stands for freedom against a nudey calendar. More than likely it was probably a gay nudey calendar….

    19. St Stephen on May 29th, 2009 10:44 am

      #17 Jack Hammer

      Comparing the American flag to a nude calendar only reveals the juvenile mentality that you possess, but of course you are free to express it since it has been paid for with the blood of those fighting under said flag.

      Congrats on your attempt to irritate some of the members here. But in your case half-wit is better than no wit, I guess.

      oh and jack, there’s a huge difference between a nudey calender and the American Flag. i could actually explain this if you don’t understand.

      The Star Spangled Banner Lyrics
      By Francis Scott Key 1814

      Oh, say can you see by the dawn’s early light
      What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming?
      Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,
      O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
      And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
      Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
      Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
      O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

      On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
      Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
      What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep,
      As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
      Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,
      In full glory reflected now shines in the stream:
      ‘Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh long may it wave
      O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

      And where is that band who so dauntingly swore
      That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion,
      A home and a country should leave us no more!
      Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps’ pollution.
      No refuge could save the hireling and slave
      From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
      And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
      O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

      Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
      Between their loved home and the war’s desolation!
      Blest with victory and peace, may the heav’n rescued land
      Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
      Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
      And this be our motto: “In God is our trust.”
      And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
      O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

      Maybe if we ignore Jerk Hammer, he will go away. He is trying to get a rise out of us. He is obviously drinking to much of the Obama juice and can’t form a thought of his own.

    27. nurturer on May 29th, 2009 10:08 pm

      #26 – Exactly.

      When it is too dumb, idiotic, or infantile to respond to, then we Monkeys should treat is as such.

    28. Patti on May 29th, 2009 11:19 pm

      I still agree with everybody…

      And would, still tell him to stand in line.

      We have given so much to this country and to think that he would step in someone’s way of their own personal beliefs? That’s wrong.

      I just hope that Obama isn’t going to free the foreign slaves before he frees us. We have been slaves to this system of things, paying our way, the whole time. We are the ones that should be working, not someone from another country. There are plenty of people that are in need of a job that could do better at managing his people than that… imo.

      My daughter would have stronger words for him…


    29. Patti on May 29th, 2009 11:27 pm


      Laugh out Loud!

      As a soldier fighting for the freedom of this country, i’ve never gotten such a slap in the face before reading about this (while im in an internet cafe here in Iraq) Rather than lose my temper and ramble off a buch of curse words about how un-patriotic people are, i’ll just say this…How dare you belittle the men and women that sacrifice for this country that gives u the rights and freedoms u enjoy every day!!! I wish that someone would tell me to my face that my friends died in vain! I promise that person wouldnt walk away, we fight for our country everyday with pride. So heres a word of advice…STAND BEHIND US, or FEEL FREE TO STAND RIGHT IN FRONT OF US…5.56 wont feel so great!
