Clap your hands over the kiddies’ eyes and ears today. We’re going to talk smutty.

That’s thanks to Nebraska’s longtime Smut King, State Sen. Ernie Chambers of North Omaha. He’s a fossilized Black Panther who didn’t get the memo that the ’60s are over. He is a tiresome, racist, sexist, atheist, freeze-dried hippie potty mouth and probable communist. He  is the proximate cause of the continuing depression, deprivation and crime in his state legislative district because he is always monkeying around with legislative bills about mountain lions, suing God, desecrating Catholic prayer beads, and so forth — everything but what they need for better lives. Chambers is always making people mad by reviling white people, women and especially cops, including bragging that if he had a gun, he would shoot a cop, and that ISIS is better than American police officers.

Such a conversational cocktail party superstar. Now he has done it again. Sigh.

He and two of his little minions in the Nebraska Legislature bullied another state senator, Bill Kintner, a conservative from Papillion, Neb., into resigning because he retweeted a joke on Twitter. The joke was by news/comedian Larry Elder, ironically another black guy. Here’s the photo of three atrociously coarse and clueless women from last weekend’s “march” that Elder posted on Twitter:

 

Apparently, they are fearful that President Trump is going to try to grab them for sex. Note Elder’s quip: “Ladies, I think you’re safe.”

Now, that’s ridicule, and that’s not nice, and no, I wouldn’t have passed on that joke. But Sen. Kintner did. He was already in the doghouse for using his state-issued computer to carry on some sort of a cybersex encounter, and had to pay a stiff fine. So he was supposed to toe the line this legislative session. Instead, he impulsively retweeted that photo.

And of course, all hell broke loose from the lefties and libbers. They whipped themselves into a froth and frenzy over it, even though it didn’t break any rule or law, and was more about ridiculing the women for their cluelessness, which is an equal opportunity ridicule topic, m/f.

But they succeeded in getting Kintner to quit the Legislature. And one of the ringleaders was . . . drumroll please . . . the racist, sexist, violence-promoting potty mouth himself, Sen. Ernie Chambers.
Comes now a friend who reported a much more outrageous thing that Sen. Chambers said in 1993, directly, by name, to an assistant attorney general for the State of Nebraska, working in her official capacity. I’ve put it in larger type so you can get the full effect. He said:

“She will have to get her ecstasy some other way, maybe with a vibrator. I doubt she can get a man.”

Here’s the book and its eminent author:

  

The unbelievably awful, sexual harassing quote was used as a prime example of sexism against women in a 1995 book published by Oxford University Press. It is “Beyond the Double Bind: Women and Leadership,” by Kathleen Hall Jamieson, dean of the Annenberg School of Communication at the University of Pennsylvania. So Chambers rained down hatred and disparagement against Nebraska women to a worldwide audience, and made everybody think that’s how we treat our accomplished women in this state.

By the way, that woman is Sharon Lindgren, now retired. Her husband died of cancer a short while after Chambers’ vicious attack. He got in zero trouble for it. Here’s how she looked recently:

Two completely different contexts. The women with the “pussy” signs were anonymous, on public property, and setting the tone of the conversation with their coarse but I suppose you could say “light-hearted” signs. You could say that they brought the ridicule on themselves in their cluelessness. In stark contrast, Sharon Lindgren was working, in a professional capacity, in the glare of the public eye, in a serious capacity, and the slander and ridicule launched at her had to be very, very difficult to take in front of her legal peers and other elected and appointed government officials. Imagine how it felt to go to the next meeting with any of those, who had heard the sexual harassment, and saw that she was powerless to stop it or have it punished.

So, shrinking violet that I am . . . I sent Chambers’ quote and citation to the 13 of the 49 Nebraska state senators who are strong women leaders. Surely they would be as outraged by the hypocrisy and inconsistency as I was. So far, what have I heard back? Crickets, except for one extremely left-wing senator, who completely ignored Chambers’ offensive remark, and stated that “What Senator Kintner tweeted was no joke to me.”

So . . . if a conservative elected official merely repeats somebody else’s photo and one-liner about some random women’s appearance, it’s terrible, horrible, no good, very bad, part of the “rape culture,” and worthy of a forced resignation from his job — a convenient move, since Kintner was championing several conservative legislative bills this session that his left-wing foes now won’t have such a hard time defeating, with him out of the way.

BUT . . . if a “progressive” elected official such as Chambers ridicules a living, breathing woman, by name, to her face, who is both a voter and a state employee in his state, and slanders her as being unable to obtain sexual fulfillment except for the use of a sex toy, regardless of what her terminally ill husband and children might feel about that treatment, that is fair game and just hunky-dory fine and dandy.

WHAT THE HECK HAS HAPPENED TO US?!?!?!

But aha! I figured out what the deal is! I’m going to check those state senators’ campaign contribution records. Know what I’ll find? Lots and lots of contributions from companies that make VIBRATORS!!!

Follow the money! OK, just kidding. But . . . what other explanation could there be? Sheesh.
