MS - Hospital Fires Worker Who Wore Confederate Shirt With Noose to Polls

A hospital worker from Mississippi came out to vote on election day, and made waves online, and not exactly for voting. He was photographed with an unusual statement made from his shirt. Said photo went viral in days, and the worker soon found himself jobless as a result of his shirt choice that fateful day.

Former cop Clayton Hickey of Olive Branch wore a Confederate Flag T-shirt with a noose, and with the words “Mississippi Justice”’ emblazoned on the shirt’s front.

The reactions from social media users came fast and intense especially from the furious liberals, with some calling Hickey out for such a move, while others minced no words in slamming him for his shirt choice.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Clayton Hickey, a nurse and former cop (fired for contributing to the delinquency of a minor) is the guy in the hideously racist shirt. Just another one of Trump’s “Very fine people on both sides” <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Sarah Wine-Thyre 🇺🇸🏳️‍🌈 (@SarahThyre) <a href="">November 7, 2018</a></blockquote>

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Clayton Hickey needs to be fired immediately.

Some brought up the racism card while seemingly hitting Hickey for being white, as well as other white people.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Everybody help to make <a href="">@claytonhickey</a> famous. He&#39;s had a great career as a cop, until he got caught with and underage girl and alcohol, and now he&#39;s a nurse. He&#39;s got all kinds of awards and accolades on his twitter feed. <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Resistance</a> <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#ElectionResults2018</a> <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#WhitePeople</a> <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Racism</a> <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; The Robbie Wilkes (@robbiewilkes) <a href="">November 8, 2018</a></blockquote>

<script async src="" charset="utf-8"></script>

Some users also demanded that Hickey be fired from his job, reasoning that he can no longer be trusted “to provide care to ALL patients."

Due to the number of messages the hospital received for three days starting on Tuesday until Thursday calling for Hickey’s firing, the hospital decided to give the EMT the boot.

The hospital released a statement which said: “Regional One Health is committed to a safe, secure and comfortable work environment for our patients, guests, employees, and medical staff.”

The hospital also stressed that “all allegations of inappropriate behavior and violations of trust involving employees are reviewed and investigated.”

They also added: “We understand and appreciate the intense feelings related to this situation, but it is our duty to perform a thorough due diligence to verify the truth.”

The hospital said such behavior exhibited by Hickey “will not be tolerated”, and so came out with a decision to terminate him after they’ve completed their investigation.

There are also those who defended Hickey and said wearing such a shirt was no basis for the hospital to fire Hickey, with one suggesting a lawsuit.

Guy is going to win a fat wrongful termination lawsuit. You cant fire someone for what they do on their own time.

The liberals are afraid of people like Clayton Hickey. They thought they managed to indoctrinate most American men but they are wrong. There are millions of other men just like Hickey and they are mad at the liberals and rinnos. Who can blame them. These crooked politicians are traitors and enemies of the United States and the foreigners and liberal perverts are there voter base. It's ok for blacks and mexicans to be racist and get away with criminal activity but don't let the white man protect his rights from these hypocrites. Hickey needs a good lawyer and should sue the hospital on grounds of freedom of speech.

People knee-jerk to the race card anymore b/c it's self-rightousness. His shirt does not indicate race, it indicates voting and that candidates had better be honest&do their jobs. It's not a literal threat, it's a meme. He has the right to wear it. What about all the white-haters, Antifa commies, Black Panthers, etc….no one cries foul over those. The leftists/commies are trying to stomp out free speech, and stupid white people are falling for it.

It's just a shirt, and if people would stop the knee-jerk & see that it's about voting and that candidates had better do their jobs. It's a meme, it's humor. Get a grip, it's not about race but to the race-baiters who make their living squawking about it.

IF he did this on his OWN TIME and did not associate himself with his employer, then YES he has a Lawsuit.

With that said; I will say, being an old school GA Southerner, I an my 6 way mixed race family support the proper and honorable display of the CSA & US Flag.

If more understood the reason for the war over State Rights (the 10th Amendment) they would also.

While we are touching on the CSA subject….

How many have ever read the "Corwin Amendment" aka "The Ghost Amendment"? If you have you already know the Slavery excuse used for the war is a Lie. Because it was a US Constitutional Amendment that was written and submitted by to Northerners (HR & Senate (NY/OH) )? It allowed the South & North to keep indentured servants & slaves if they did not leave the USA Union. It was submitted , passed the US House and the US Senate, sign by the President, even approved by in coming Abe Lincoln. An was already submitted to the states for ratification before the war broke out over the main issue of State Rights and the Fed's higher taxes imposed on the Souths agracluture & items.

BTW: the Ships used to bring the slaves to America were Northern Shipping Family Owned.

Yup, I always bring up the Corwin Amendment when people try to make the argument that it was over slavery. The great emancipator was fine with making slavery a constitutional guarantee for the South IF they would stay in the union.

If you haven't read it, I highly recommend James and Walter Kennedy's book The South Was Right. Incredibly well researched book that makes the argument that the South was well within legal rights and covers the real reasons (states rights, agriculture vs. industry, central banking, the right to coin your own currency, etc.) that led to the Civil War.

How nice that these blue Saturn-star NPCs get a platform to spew their marxist rhetoric. Isn't it so much better when you get censored by a private company, goyim?
