Nebraska Sen. Goes On Amazing Hours-Long Filibuster, Calls Out Fellow Pols’ Crimes By Name, With Wrath Of God And Black Jesus

First of all, there is a black legislator from Nebraska. Second of all, he spent yesterday going Wrath of God on his fellow leggies, whether Dem or Republican, and specifically called them out (by name) for their gambling and fornicating and homosexing. Third of all, he told them all to shut up because Black Jesus. And fourth of all, the guy whose bill he was filibustering at the time — which would have allowed nonprofits to contract with prison work camps and which actually sounds okay, if you are all right ethically with the concept of prison work camps in general — had a rilllly good comeback, and that comeback was that looks like SOMEBODY’S not going to Heaven because he doesn’t have a proper relationship with our lord and savior Jesus Christ! (We guess he wasn’t listening during the Black Jesus part.)

And that, United States Senate, is how you do a filibuster!

Sen. Ernie Chambers (I) shut down the legislative process for hours on Wednesday with his filibuster of [Mark] Christensen’s Legislative Bill 52, which allows inmates at the McCook Work Ethic Camp to provide labor for “any charitable, fraternal, or nonprofit corporation.”

During his hours-long filibuster, Chambers blasted former Republican Lt. Gov. Rick Sheehy, who recently resigned after a paper revealed that he had made thousands of phone calls to women who were not his wife. Chambers was also critical of the Nebraska attorney general because he let former Sen. Brenda Council (D) off with a misdemeanor after she gambled more than $63,000 in campaign funds at casinos. [...]

“Why shouldn’t Sheehy be sentenced to do some free labor?” he wondered. “It would teach him good work habits, and it would let him know that crime of any kind doesn’t pay.”

Chambers — who once sued God for causing “fearsome floods, egregious earthquakes, horrendous hurricanes, terrifying tornadoes, pestilential plagues, ferocious famines, devastating droughts, genocidal wars, birth defects, and the like” — continued his filibuster by going after the hypocrisy of Republican Christians because they had “taken people’s wives” and “shiver of shivers, engaged in homosexuality.”

At one point, Chambers noted that Jesus “looked more like me than you all.”

The state senator observed that the Mafia had higher standards than the Catholic Church because if made men were “raping children, they’d off them.”

Tell us why Ernie Chambers should shut the fuck up, Mark Christensen?

“He knows the Bible but he doesn’t have the relationship that it takes to be a Christian or go to Heaven,” Christensen added.
