A woman at a Hillsborough County Commission meeting on Thursday had a tearful, enraged meltdown over the removal of a Confederate monument in Tampa Bay.
WFLA reporter Ryan Hughes tweeted video of the woman’s remarks to the council, in which she said, “I’m disgusted to be an American and I’m disgusted to call Hillsborough County my home.”
“You did right, you voted to save it,” the woman said, referring to members of the council’s attempt to halt the relocation of a Confederate monument from in front of the Hillsborough County courthouse to a private cemetery in a Tampa suburb. “I can’t believe it. You did the right thing, and I’m just disgusted.”
In June, the commission voted 4 to 3 to keep the statue, but was ultimately overruled.
The removal, which took place on Tuesday, was the culmination of a bitter, months-long battle over the fate of the 106-year-old marble sculpture, which has stood in front the courthouse since 1952.

Trump tells Fox News the ‘Black Lives Matter’ sign on Fifth Avenue is like he’s being ‘prosecuted’
President Donald Trump appeared to reveal another quid pro quo during an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity.
MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell pointed it out during an interview with Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA).
"I was very nice to Mayor de Blasio. I got him ventilators when he needed them... I got him the gowns. I got him the masks. I got him everything. Then he throws a big Black Lives Matter sign right down in the middle of Fifth Avenue. I was so good to him and to Gov. Cuomo, like nobody's ever been good. And then all you end up doing out of that place is getting prosecuted."
