Sen. Tim Scott had a lot to say about Sen. Chuck Schumer and the Democrats now complaining that the Senate filibuster is racist, even though they used it over 300 times last year.
Suppose you want to know the truth. Republicans are using the filibuster to stop the left from progressing their far-left agenda. Do you remember last spring when the Democrats used the filibuster to defeat a police reform bill advanced Scott?
Scott joined FOX News this weekend and took his foot to the pants of the Democrats’ hypocrisy.

[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.”
Tim Scott deserves serious consideration for the presidential or Vice Presidential ticket for the Republican Party in 2024. He’s it only solution-oriented in helping minorities but also can bolster the economy with good policy.
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

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.

If they get rid of the filibuster and their federal election bill is passed, you might as well get rid of elections altogether because the voters who oppose the left’s socialist ways will be erased. You might as well appoint a leader and anoint him as a fascist dictator of socialist democracy.
Eliminating Photo ID and the rest of their pure crazy proposals like ballot harvesting and the rest will not be a fair or even playing field for all voters. I would call that reverse voter suppression. Photo ID requirements are not voter suppression, except in the minds of Democrats.
As conservatives, we need to look at party leadership and ensure it represents constitutional values. The party is rich with staunch conservatives of all races, religions, and sex. Senator Scott is among the cream of the crop. Let’s not seek the low standard democrats are constantly pursuing and keep our values high and supporting the likes of Senator Scott.
The Senate is the steam valve for the government, preventing the house from running amok. They are supposed to be the mature part of Congress. Republicans need to get on the ball and start pushing back against the Democrats’ power grab, or this country is finished.
