So when McLucas arrived at work at a Texas hospital last Friday, she was stunned to be told that the Stars and Stripes she had hung in her office in advance of Memorial Day were offensive, and that the flag had been removed.
“I got into work, I was met by my supervisor and told that there had been multiple complaints, that people found the flag very offensive and it had been taken down," McLucas told FOXNews.com.
Do you know why it's taken down?
I was told that as long as my flag offended one person, it would be taken down," McLucas said.
Would you like to know who this 'person' is? Are you ready for this new change?
McLucas, a supervisor at Kindred Hospital in Mansfield, Texas, had displayed the 3-by-5-foot flag in the office she shares with the hospital’s three other supervisors. McLucas said one of her colleagues, a woman who immigrated to the United States from Africa 14 years ago, complained about the flag to upper management, and the hospital decided to take down the flag.
An immigrated African woman. How about that for a 'change'?

I would not support someone in my office hanging a 3 foot by 5 foot flag... no matter what flag it is... that's too big for an office...
Get a small one.
And I bet the real reason for the removal is the size, not the content, and in typical Faux news, they turned it into a culture war story.
“The disagreement was over the size of the flag and not what it symbolized. We have invited the employee to put the flag back up.”
As I figured... I would not want a large flag in the way at my office too, they make plenty of small flags for offices you can use as paper weights...
This type of journalism is rotting America... Create the illusion of Hate for the Flag in America, and only at the very last sentence report that the issue is not that's it's an American Flag, but it's a frigging big flag in a small office...
