Arkansas Republican Sen. Tom Cotton unmasked the left’s lies about the Republican use of the filibuster in the latest video from Dinesh D’Souza.
“I will acknowledge that some Democrats over the years used the filibuster to block civil rights progress. But I will also remind my Democratic colleagues that, yes, they used the filibuster hundreds of times in the last administration,” Cotton said.
The senator then proceeds to read the names of numerous Democrats who have used the filibuster hundreds of times.
He also notes an April 2017 letter led by Democrats and signed by more than 60 Senators to support the filibuster. Twenty-six in the current senate signed it.
Oh, and now-Vice President Kamala Harris.
Unless Democrats have suddenly had a case of amnesia, the only reason for the filibuster change of mind is that Democrats now have the power in Senate.
Cotton notes, “Something’s changed” since 2017. He sarcastically reveals what has changed is the power in the White House and Senate.
D’Souza is right to highlight the contradictory messages of Democrats to show the hypocrisy of the filibuster argument. It has nothing to do with “justice” and everything to do with power.
Check it out and you’ll discover all the evidence you need to show why the filibuster is an important part of America’s legislative system.
