So it was racist when the Democrats used the filibuster to stop Senator Scott's police reform bill last year? The Democrats were happy to use the filibuster repeatedly when they were in the minority and they gave speeches waxing eloquent in defense of the filibuster. They are thus total hypocrites: they don't even believe their own attacks on the filibuster. It is just a short term political ploy to push through a partisan agenda they have no mandate to pass. But attempting to end the filibuster will backfire badly for the Democrats. When Republicans take control of the Senate in 2022, they will be able to repeal everything the Democrats passed. How the Democrats will whine then about the loss of the filibuster.
