Neb. State Sen. Ernie Chambers: 'My ISIS Is the Police'

By    |   Wednesday, 25 Mar 2015 06:45 PM

Nebraska State Sen. Ernie Chambers says that police are terrible and racist and likens them to the Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist organization rampaging through the Middle East.

"My ISIS is the police," Chambers, Nebraska's longest-serving state senator, said at a legislative hearing last week, according to Watchdog.org.

"The police are licensed to kill us – children, old people," he said.

He said it isn't necessary to go halfway around the world to find the ISIS mentality, saying it can be found in the United States, where the police terrorize black people every day.

Chambers said that if he had a gun, he would use it on police, not his political opponents.

"If I was going to carry a weapon, it wouldn't be against you, it wouldn't be against these people who come here that I might have a dispute with. Mine would be for the police," he said. "And if I carried a gun I'd want to shoot him first and then ask questions later, like they say the cop ought to do."

During an interview Tuesday, Chambers accused police of following rules which allowed them to "just shoot somebody and come up with an alibi."

He later said, however, that he realizes that young people in his community look up to him and might take his comments literally.

"I’m not advocating that anybody, especially anybody in my community, go out and shoot people," said Chambers, an independent.

Reporters who cover Nebraska's unicameral, nonpartisan legislature tend to avoid reporting on Chambers' most outrageous comments, according to Watchdog.org's Deena Winter, usually the lone exception to the rule.

In a recent story, she described his remarks as "often the most interesting thing in the Legislature."

During a recent filibuster, Chambers declared that all white people are racist, that "white people don't keep their word" and that white people "polluted" his blood.

Chambers also declared that the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were about letting white men do whatever they pleased, including sexually abusing black women and girls, Winter wrote.
