Feb 25, 2019

(Lincoln, NE)  --  A state senator raises eyebrows by making a controversial comment about the American flag.  Earlier this week, Ernie Chambers compared the American flag with a Nazi swastika.  He went on to call the stars and stripes a quote "rag."  He made the remark during debate over a bill that would update school civics requirements.  Other lawmakers criticized Chambers, saying it's insulting to those who have sacrificed for the United States and also minimized the horrors of the Holocaust.
