Democrats are desperate to end the filibuster. They see this as the key to passing their far left agenda, and they’re right. Without the filibuster, they would be able to pass pretty much whatever they want.
So, in an effort to get rid of the filibuster, they are pulling out the top move from their playbook and calling it “racist”. And it’s not just racist, but a “Jim Crow relic”.
But there’s just one problem with their ridiculous claim. They were in love with the filibuster just last year.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Democrats used filibuster 327 times, compared to only once by GOP in 2020: Report
President Joe Biden has been increasingly critical of the Senate filibuster, calling it a Jim Crow relic and saying it has been widely abused despite Democrats using it over 300 times in 2020, compared to once by Republicans.
“After @POTUS @JoeBiden denounced the rampant abuse of the filibuster last year, we did some digging,” Fox News anchor John Roberts tweeted Friday. “Republicans used it once. Democrats used it 327 times.”
Well that kind of ruins the narrative, doesn’t it?
Of course, CNN is trying to help the Democrats push the party line.
Everything the Democrats are saying about this is garbage and shame on the media for not making them own it.
The Democrats just want power. That’s what this is all about.
