Nebraska Dem. Senator Proudly Says Cops are ‘Just Like ISIS,’ He’d Like to Shoot Them

A hate-filled, extremist left-wing state senator in Nebraska has refused to back down from saying police officers are exactly like ISIS and that he would like to “shoot” them.

State Sen. Sen. Ernie Chambers made his comments[1] during the legislative session on Wednesday and by Thursday he was refusing to retract[2] his statement.

The state lawmaker froma Omaha defiantly stood Thursday on the floor of the Nebraska Legislature and rejected many of his colleagues’ calls for him to apologize — or even resign — for comparing cops to ISIS terrorists and suggesting he’d shoot a cop if he weren’t nonviolent and had a gun.

“I meant what I said and I said what I meant,” Chambers said.

He said the irony is that lawmakers were discussing freedom of expression on Wednesday, and said it was ignorant and “idle talk” to suggest taking any kind of legal action, since lawmakers are immune from civil or criminal liability in connection with anything they say in the Legislature.

“I’m not going to resign,” he said. “I’m not going to apologize. Why do you think I would apologize?”

Imagine. A public official calling for cops to be shot!
