Hospital Worker Fired After Wearing Confederate Flag Shirt With Noose on Election Day

As racial tensions increase in the United States, undercover racists are becoming more comfortable with showing their true colors – letting their racist flags fly. But, despite the increase, the true American patriots are refusing to condone the hateful rhetoric. 

In fact, many go as far as to expose their information on the Internet, in an attempt to get them fired for being racists, hateful pigs, and now, a hospital worker from Mississippi is feeling the wrath of the new generation. 

On Tuesday, as the nation came together to vote for the Midterm Elections, in an attempt to take back the power from Trump, Clayton Hickey, of Olive Branch, used the opportunity to promote his racist views with a Confederate flag T-shirt, which featured a noose and the words “Mississippi Justice” written on the front. 

A true American patriot took a photo of the hateful shirt on Tuesday, posted it online and within hours, his name and resume quickly went viral, with many calling for his firing and condemning him as racist. 

“Clayton Hickey needs to be fired immediately,” one Twitter user wrote. “He cannot be trusted to provide care to ALL patients of #RegionalOneHealth, nor should he be able to be hired by anyone else in a role that is responsible for the well-being of others.” 

By Thursday, the hospital, where Hickey served as an EMT, released a statement, announcing his firing. 

“Regional One Health is committed to a safe, secure, and comfortable work environment for our patients, guests, employees, and medical staff,” the hospital said, adding that “all allegations of inappropriate behavior and violations of trust involving employees are reviewed and investigated.”

“We understand and appreciate the intent feelings related to this situation, but it is our duty to perform a thorough due diligence to verity the truth.”

“As of today, November 8, 2018, we have completed our investigation and what we learned led to the termination of the employee in question,” the statement continued. “Regional One Health holds employees to a high standard. We are committed to upholding our mission to provide compassionate care and exceptional services to all. This includes fostering a safe and protected work and care environment for all. Behaviors contrary to these principles are unacceptable and will not be tolerated.”

Remember when Trump said he’d be creating more jobs for Americans? Well, maybe he was on to something. As he continues to encourage racists to expose themselves, more jobs are opening up, as each racist gets the boot.
