We live in an age of hysterical exhibitionism and irrationality

Republican South Carolina State Representative (and alleged Jefferson Davis descendant) Jenny Horne goes into a sobbing, bawling, hollering meltdown on the floor of the legislature, demanding the Confederate flag be eradicated. Naturally she is being hailed as a hero. This is how legal and cultural issues should be worked through, don’t you think? By toddlers.

I’m dedicating this one to BillyHW. Skip forward to 0:45

  • I watched her pathetic display. No one should ever vote for this woman.

    First it was the Confederate flag. Then they will go after the stars and strips for segregation and the union jack for colonialism. Don’t be surprised if they replace the Confederate flag with this! http://content.tradyouth.org/uploads/2013/09/rainbow-confederate-300×190.png

  • Thanks for this. Your post title says it all: hysterical exhibitionism and irrationality. So much of this nonsense is born of moral vanity, posing and posturing: “Oh look how moral and enlightened I am! Notice me! Admire me!”

  • If she feeeeeeels so very strongly, why didn’t she throw a fit a few weeks ago?

    She does not care about the horrendous black-on-white and black-on-black crime statistics; she should rather legislate to ban rap, that is, something wholly offensive; she is also a perfect example as to why politics and war should be the sole preserve of real men!

    Methinks Ge, Rob. E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson and a few other Confederate notables from the Army of Northern Viginia would make sure this babe got court martialed
