“The filibuster is the least democratic aspect of our least democratic part of our government,” Colbert said.
Late night entertainment shows aren’t what they used to be. Over the last four years, we saw the complete politicization of these programs. They are all pro-Democrat, anti-Trump, and anti-Republican.
Now they are basically being used to push policy, too.
Chuck Schumer was on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert this week. In the clip below, Colbert pushes the ridiculous left-wing idea that the United States Senate is flawed because states like Wyoming have the same number of senators as states like New York. He also claims that the filibuster is flawed. All of this is set up before Schumer even speaks.
From Yahoo News:
President Biden’s unexpected endorsement of making senators earn their filibusters has been a shot of adrenaline to the progressive push to reform the Senate’s de facto 60-vote threshold for passing any legislation. Stephen Colbert asked Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) about that on Thursday’s Late Show.
“The filibuster is the least democratic aspect of our least democratic part of our government,” Colbert said. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) just said “if y’all change the filibuster, there will be ‘scorched earth’ of the kind that no one presently sitting in the Senate has ever seen,” he added. “What could possibly be more ‘scorched earth’ than the way Mitch McConnell has just run roughshod for the past four to eight years, really? I mean, isn’t he threatening that if you do this, Mitch McConnell will continue to be Mitch McConnell?”

Over on Late Night with Seth Meyers, same thing. Meyers even goes on to accuse Republicans of trying to steal elections and suppressing voters, in addition to pushing the idea of nuking the filibuster.

UNHINGED Meyers: ‘Moral Necessity’ for Dems to Rig Elections
“Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has promised a ‘scorched earth Senate’ if Democrats change the filibuster to pass sweeping and urgently needed democracy reforms as Republicans across the country unleash a tidal wave of draconian new voting restrictions,” Meyers wailed as began his uninterrupted partisan tantrum. He then proceeded to bitterly complain that America’s constitutional system of checks and balances was unfair to Democrats:
Our democracy as currently constituted, is simply, not a level playing field. In fact, it’s arguably never been a level playing field, it’s heavily tilted toward a minority of voters that are predominately white and rural, thanks in large part to anti-majoritarian institutions like the Electoral College and the Senate. Just consider that right now the Senate is evenly split 50/50 and yet the 50 Senate Democrats represent nearly 42 million more Americans than the 50 senate Republicans….I mean, just consider the scope of how heavily tilted our democratic institutions are toward Republicans. They’ve only won the popular vote once in the last 32 years, yet, they’ve appointed a majority of Supreme Court justices…
