Skip to comments.'It's a Rag': Nebraska Lawmaker Compares American Flag to Swastika
Posted on 02/22/2019 4:27:40 PM PST by GuavaCheesePuff
Nebraska State Sen. Ernie Chambers is taking criticism for calling the American flag a "rag" and comparing it to the Nazi swastika.
Chambers (I) made the comments Tuesday as he spoke out against a state bill that would update civics requirements for students.
"I don't come here for this rag every day, and it's a rag. That's all it is to me," Chambers said in reference to the flag. "When you show a way to persuade Jews to sanctify and worship the swastika, when you show me that I'll come up here and stand while you all hypocritically pretend that rag is something that it definitely is not."

This guy is apparently pretty nutty and likes to make outlandish statements. He tried to compare the police to ISIS terrorists a few years ago. And he actually once filed a lawsuit against God. (no joke)
Not real sure why he keeps getting re-elected.
It’s time to put this little boy back on food stamps.
Looken sharp Nebraska! Real class.
Mr. Chambers, how many hundreds of thousands of Union Troopers died to FREE your predecessors? They died for YOU and that rag. Your hate is strong and misplaced.
I suppose Chambers, piss be upon him, comes from Omaha or Lincoln. I used to get custom boots from a maker in Omaha who I asked to fit a holster in the shaft of one of the boots. I offered my suggestions on how to do it but was politely told that they were familiar with such modifications as they had done many for local police officers. When I stopped in at their shop in Omaha, I had a very good look at the town. The holster was perfect and after looking at the town, it was obvious how they were so expert in such boot modifications. Nebraska is not universally the patriotic old west any longer.
What State are you from?
Chambers is anti America. He did his job. Pro Americans must have been busy not sinking to his level.
Hospital and jail should be words in this story.
Its over not because there are too many leftists but because there are too few patriots.
What lawful constraints? He made a statement of opinion.
Like it or not (and I dont) he’s duly elected an has been for 40 years. Sadly the majority of his constituents don’t seem to have a problem with it.
“Why doesnt he move to another country?”
I say this all the time ! There are plenty of english speaking socialist countries out there. They want to change ours. I can’t figure out why. We are the last of our kind. Like Reagan said.. “Once America is gone, there is no where else to go.”
And on top of all of this... the job he CHOSE was to be part of the legislative system ! WHY WHY WHY
Just what we need - another hate filled black politician with an I.Q. in single digits.
He’s a puke.
And what has where I’m from have to do with this elected Nebraska official comparing our flag to a Nazi swastika and a rag?
Are we no allowed to comment?
Hillary won Lincoln (Nebraska Univ, college town) by exactly 77 votes (out of 121,089). She won Douglas county (Omaha city) by 3056 votes. She got 165,740 votes in those two counties... and 108,118 total votes in the other 91 counties combined. Trump won the state by 211,961 votes. She won her two counties by 3,133 votes. Yes, NEB is a red state. :)
*SPIT* Chambers leads all of those nutless wonders around by their noses.
You are basically condemning an entire state for a guy that probably less than a half a percent of the entire state population voted for.
His district is the majority black district in North Omaha, he keeps getting reelected because he hates white people.
I wuz thinking about this today...
I'd Like like to see your list.
And >90% of that demographic still approves of Barack O'DumDum's presidential performance. There's something wrong with them. They're not right. In the head.
He’s a Democrat like Bernie Sanders, calling himself “Independent”. Another far left atheist who had a minister for a father; and yet he has the gall of taking on the title of “non-denominational minister” to give him the power to officiate weddings after advancing legislation to impose taxes on churches in the name of atheism. Tries to effect a “working man” image by wearing nothing but T-shirts and blue jeans. He shouldn’t have a political career after saying stuff like “My ISIS is the police” in 2015, never mind his lawsuit against God back in 2007 (actually, the list is very long). Very evil man.
