Last Tuesday, Nebraska State Senator Ernie Chambers (I-NB), who represents northern Omaha, Nebraska, went onto the floor of the State Legislature and compared the United States flag to the Nazi Swastica, angering many, not only in Nebraska but throughout America as a whole…

Chambers made the comments during a discussion on updating civic requirements for Nebraska schools. Chambers was criticizing a bill, LB 399, which would update civics requirements in the state’s schools to improve student literacy “in civics, history, economics, financial literacy, and geography.” The Examiner reported that…

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.“

His fellow lawmakers were outraged when they criticized the 81-year-old state senator over his anti-American comments.

In fact, State Sen. Tom Brewer (R-NE), a military veteran, said that “it’s hard” to refer to the American flag “as a rag” given how those who serve our country sacrifice a lot to respect the flag. He added…

“I think I speak for most of us that have worn the uniform, it rips our heart out to hear someone say that they refer to the flag as a rag,” Brewer said. “Because for those of us that have brought home those that we’ve lost, it’s hard to ever refer to the flag as a rag because you have to fold it and you have to get it to the parents, and that’s awful hard to do.”

State Sen. Julie Slama (R-NE), who sponsored the civics bill, was outraged that he was “degrading” a symbol representing those who “sacrifice for our nation.” She 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.”

Ernie Chambers has represented parts of Omaha since 1971. However, this isn’t the first time that Ernie Chambers has made anti-American or controversial comments. In fact, he has said things like…



“As long as I’m in the Legislature, I’m going to work for abolition of the death penalty in Nebraska.”

— 1976

Donald Trump

“Donald Trump is an undercover Democrat. … He is the bomb that is within the Republican Party destroying it.”

In the end, Ernie Chambers has had decades to let the embers of hate smolder and corrupt his mind! Furthermore, even if he was wronged in his younger days, one resounding fact rises to the surface, like buttercream in a churn. It is the fact that no matter what wrongs have been leveled against him, America and the Constitution of the United States have granted him some of the most precious gifts from not only America, but from God himself, including the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness! Regardless,  Chambers exemplifies just one of the major wrongs with our nation, and that is the utter hate for America, the American people, for God, and for freedom itself, which has infected not only those within the now Marxist and Socialist Democrat Party, but within other Party’s as well. For example, the Green Party who embraces environmental socialism! The RINO Republicans (Republican In Name Only) who claim to fight for liberty and freedom, but truly embrace Fabian-Economic Socialism! The Libertarian Party, which has many who embrace Socialist ideals! The Democrat Socialists of America, who embrace full-blown Marxism! The Communist Party USA, who doesn’t even try to hide or mask its Marxist beliefs! Fortunately, after decades with nobody who truly represent ‘We the People’, we finally have a leader who puts America First, and Americans’ First! We finally have a leader who puts the interests of those who elected him, rather than the interests of the Party first and foremost! We finally have a leader who does what he says, and says what he means! We finally have President Trump who puts America First, in his mission to finally ‘Make America Great Again’!
