That "guy" as you called him is a state Senator and he compared our flag to Nazis and a rag.

Am I supposed to complement and praise Nebraska for making this individual a state senator? Or maybe you can list the exact names of those who voted for him, and then I can use their individual names so as not to offend Nebraska.

Ping me whey you compile all the names.

It’s not a state full of “proper” rednecks. That’s democrat thinking.

The shitbag is continually elected by his constituents in North Omaha who are the same ethnic persuasion as he is. He’s not elected by the majority of the state. It is the state legislature elected by small districts.

He has been doing this since at least the 60s. There was a short period where the seat was held by a corrupt Omaha city councilwoman, interestingly enough by the name of Brenda Council.

The long held myth in Nebraska is that the Unicameral legislature is non-partisan. Pure fiction.

None of the “non-partisan” state senators have the nads to stand up to him or they are “non-partisan” democrats.

From outside of the legislature, on the talk radio stations and the general public, he’s taking a beating over this but it will make no difference.

how many hundreds of thousands of Union Troopers died to FREE your predecessors?

"You're a grand old rag. . ."

According to George M. Cohan, those words are what an old Gettysburg veteran said reverently as he pulled a worn and torn Union battle flag from his coat pocket to show Cohan. That was Cohan's inspiration for "You're a Grand Old Flag," part of his 1906 musical, George Washington, Jr.. That song became the first from a show to sell more than 1 million copies in sheet-music.

But no, I don't think Ernie gets it at all. He sounds like just another cranky old Commie.

They’re fixated on identity politics, and have significant prejudices and hatreds.

Growing up, I knew of a certain barbershop in northeast Omaha for one reason and one reason alone, it is where former Nebraska State Sen. Ernie Chambers held court as a barber and firebrand activist.

a consistent racist.

Hell Ernie’s been in the Nebraska legislature since before Nixon resigned! In fact they passed term limits mainly to get rid of him, which they did...for a few years. The idiot black woman who took his Omana seat was so stupid she used campaign funds to play the slots at gambling casinos and got caught, and Ernie was able to run again for his old seat after sitting out for four years, and won.

When the state amends it’s constitution (adding term limits for state senators) just to get rid of you, you gotta be a real piece of crap. It was widely understood that term limits got passed just to get Ernie out of the.Unicameral. He was out for a while but ran and won the seat again a few years back.

The Grand Old Rag--Billy Murray (1906)

You're a grand old rag,
You're a high-flying flag,
And forever in peace may you wave.
You're the emblem of
The land I love,
The home of the free and the brave.
Every heart beats true
Under red, white and blue,
Where there's never a boast or brag.
But should auld acquaintance be forgot,
Keep your eye on the grand old rag.

England, Ireland, Scotland (Where all their dreams come true.. cameras every 12 inches and completely ignored ultra-violent hoodlum crime). Australia, New Zealand. My friend in Australia says they want nothing to do with our libs. They have their own.

New Zealand also has the Maori population. Let these nutbags go there and try to preach to them like they are pets. I want to see how that goes over.

“Ernest William Chambers is an American politician who represents North Omaha’s 11th District in the Nebraska State Legislature”

“On September 14, 2007, Chambers filed a lawsuit against God, seeking a permanent injunction ordering God to “cease certain harmful activities and the making of terroristic threats...of grave harm to innumerable persons, including constituents of Plaintiff who Plaintiff has the duty to represe”

“On March 20, 2015, during a Judiciary Committee Hearing on Allowing Guns in Bars (LB 635), Chambers said as part of the conversation that “My ISIS is the police.”

“North Omaha is a community area in Omaha, Nebraska...

“Located just north of Downtown Omaha, the community includes some of the oldest neighborhoods in the city, ... as well as the historically significant African-American community, and the birthplace of Malcolm X...”

“In 2006, North Omaha became the focus of national attention after local State Senator Ernie Chambers introduced an amendment to divide the Omaha school system into three, which some observers suggested would have created de facto segregated school systems based on residential patterns. The measure was eventually repealed. “

“Race relations

Because of its troubles, many residents of Omaha view the North Omaha community as violent, poor, and drug-riddled. A recent local news report stated the area was “71 percent Black”. Despite positive activities directed at improving North Omaha over the years, including those listed above, local media tend to focus on dramatic stories of racial and economic strife within the community.”,_Nebraska

None of those countries have yet achieved the Socialist Utopia stage of say a Venezuela, but I’d be happy to issue free one way cheap airfares to those who wish to get a leg up on getting to Socialist Utopia while leaving the US alone..
