Nebraska state senator Ernie Chambers claims he is an independent, but he is obviously also a member of the far left. In a recent moment caught on camera, he compared the American flag to a Nazi symbol.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Nebraska state senator compares American flag to Nazi swastika
Nebraska state Sen. Ernie Chambers on Tuesday compared the American flag with the Nazi swastika on the floor of the legislature.
“I don’t come here for this rag every day, and it’s a rag. That’s all it is to me,” said Chambers about respecting 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.“
The comments were in response to a bill put before the Nebraska legislature that would update school civics requirements and make students more literate in “knowledge in civics, history, economics, financial literacy, and geography.”
State Sen. Julie Slama, who introduced the bill, said: “Sen. Chambers’ comments not only degrade a symbol of ultimate sacrifice for our nation, but they also minimize the horrors and millions of lives lost in the Holocaust.”

It probably won’t surprise you to learn that Chambers doesn’t want police in schools, even as resource officers.
FOX 42 News reports:
Bill introduced by State Senator Chambers would ban police as school resource officers
Keeping a close eye on the cameras, patrolling the hallways and patrolling the parking lot. That was Sarpy County Deputy and school resource officer Dale LaSonde’s job when we caught up with him at Gretna High School last year.
“I watch every entrance and every exit,” said LaSonde.
It’s a job Nebraska State Senator Ernie Chambers has an issue with. He’s introduced a bill that would ban law enforcement officers from patrolling school halls.
“You must be sensitive to all of the cultures in our school system, and that [school resource officers] can be intimidating,” said community advocate Preston Love, Jr.
Love, Jr. told FOX 42 News Friday he can see both sides of the issue, but he likes where State Senator Chambers is going with Legislative Bill 589.
“It’s not an environment our schools should have.”
Bellevue Police Chief Mark Elbert has a different point of view.
“The overall concept of not having police officers in a building in today’s day and age from a safety standpoint with some of the things that are going on around the country doesn’t make a lot of sense to me,” said Elbert.
He seems like a really swell guy, doesn’t he?
