    Jenny Horne's tearful Confederate flag speech shakes S. Carolina statehouse[W:79]

    (CNN)When Jenny Horne stepped up to the podium to address South Carolina's House of Representatives, her first words let on that she was fed up. Just not how fed up.

    Of the words stirred by passion in Wednesday's debate that eventually led lawmakers to vote to remove the Confederate battle flag from the statehouse grounds, hers would burn themselves into memory.
    Horne started out with a calm complaint.
    "We are going to be doing this all summer long," she said, after stepping up to the microphone, referring to a stream of amendments that the flag's supporters were adding to the bill and effectively delaying a vote.

    I always feel so uncomfortable when people get so emotional... It's my ingrained/brainwashed masculinity that sees it as weakness.


    it's just that... if your crying... I don't want to hear it, you're too emotionally invested and have gone out of control of yourself. Calm cool intellect and reasoning is all you need.

    Anyway... good that they got it taken down it seems

    Jesus Christ woman, get a grip. The man was crazy and I assure you banning an inanimate object won't change that.

    I suggest to you that she's a wee bit closer the issue than most. Like it or not, that took guts, especially from a republican.

    Because you yourself have no emotions or that is what libertarianism is supposed to do for one - turn them into an unfeeling Mr. Spock wannabe?

    I get emotional... but not when debating or trying to get a point across...as soon as I do, I lose.

    You're not going to get anything but an eye roll from me if you're crying for some inane reason.

    You're under the impression that she's talking about banning the flag?

    From the grounds. Either way, Jesus could this woman be more irrational? Not only did she lose it just for the show and thought it would have an effect, but her justification was just ignorant.

    If not for the Confederate flag, Dylann Roof would have been a lovely young man.
