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 article goes on to state the following:

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.”

KMTV 3News Now also reported on the incident:

While referencing the American flag, Sen. Chambers called it “a rag” which he has done before at the unicameral. He said, “Senator Groene wants to talk about the meaning of respect. What do white people mean by it and what do black people mean by it? White people mean we’ve gotta bow down to what they tell us as black people to bow down to. I don’t come here for this rag every day, and it’s a rag. That’s all it is to me. 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 bill was debated for three hours on Wednesday and may return on Friday if there are enough votes to end Sen. Chambers’ filibuster.

The Nebraska Republican Party posted the following video on Jan. 30, of another incident when Chambers also called the American flag a “rag.”

Republican Sen. Tom Brewer, who spent more than thirty years serving in the military, gave an emotional response on Thursday, after Chambers’ comments about the American flag. Watch his passionate and tearful speech below:

    Sadly people in North Omaha keep voting him back in.He has done nothing for North Omaha black people.He is against every bill that would improve things. He spends most of his time on protecting the mountain lions, which he does not care about mountain lines ,but he uses it to eat up hours and hours and hours of time so that bills that could help the state economically never ever see the floor. He is a pure obstructionist who hates white people and working black people.
