“They were for the filibuster before they were against the filibuster.”
Democrats are on a mission to abolish the filibuster, which they see as an obstacle to unfettered power. In their effort to turn the public against the filibuster, they are suddenly calling it racist and a relic of the Jim Crow past.
If that’s true, why did they use it against Senator Tim Scott’s police reform bill just last spring?
Doesn’t this pretty much destroy their narrative?
Scott appeared on FOX News on Friday night to discuss what happened.
Charles Creitz reports at FOX News:
Tim Scott blasts Biden, Democrats for filibuster flip-flop: They cry ‘racist whenever they want to scare you’
Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., ripped President Biden and congressional Democrats Friday for changing their view of the Senate filibuster rule, telling “Fox News Primetime” that they are invoking racism in order to scare Republicans.
Scott told host Brian Kilmeade it was both “frustrating and irritating” to see Democrats use the filibuster last year to block a police reform bill he proposed and claimed would have disproportionately helped the Black community.
“Here’s what we know about the Democrats,” Scott said. “They were for the filibuster before they were against the filibuster. I keep asking myself, ‘Will the real Chuck Schumer please stand up?’ Is it the one who was for the filibuster or is it the new one who is now against filibuster?”
Scott added that Democrats “use the word ‘racist’ whenever they are trying to scare people into their corner. It has nothing to do with race. But they don’t care. Winning at all costs means losing at some point.”

Senator Scott has also made his thoughts known on Twitter.
The Democrats’ assault on the filibuster is wrong.
It's the perfect example of the “woke Left” shutting down any debate to push through their radical agenda.
A system too fragile to entertain divergent points of view is doomed to fail.

President Obama & President Biden both vigorously defended the filibuster in 2005. The reason for Democrats’ change of heart is painfully transparent: Silencing the voice of the minority is the only way they can pass their radical agenda. https://t.co/HimYXfft3Z

Let’s also remember this inconvenient fact.

The Democrats’ new disdain for the filibuster has nothing to do with racism.
It’s all about power.
