Tucker Carlson warns against Democratic Party’s efforts to remove the filibuster

9

The Democrat Party must be stopped. They believe that they are going to take control of the White House and the the Senate in November, while maintaining their control of the House of Representatives. In an attempt to gain more political power the Dems will seek to eliminate the U.S Senate’s filibuster rule, which requires at least 60 senators to pass any major legislation.

Such a scenario would make the Senate’s minority party virtually powerless when new legislation is being negotiated. This is what the Democrats are counting on (in part) to move forward with their nefarious plans. America is quite literally on the line this November. All rational Americans must support President Trump and the Republican Party in the upcoming elections.

Tucker Carlson warns against Democratic Party’s efforts to remove the filibuster

By Fox News, July 26, 2020

Tucker Carlson defended the filibuster Tuesday night, outlining the repercussions of its possible removal from the Senate and slamming Democrats who have vowed to remove it.

“For more than two centuries, the U.S. Senate has required the support of at least 60 senators before they pass major pieces of legislation. That makes for a cumbersome system. It requires compromise and patience. It delays the passage of laws, but it has endured through the centuries,” Carlson said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” “Despite leadership of the body. At times, the Senate has been controlled by Republicans. Other times it’s been controlled by Democrats. But that standard, the standard of 60 votes often referred to as the filibuster rule, has never changed. We’ve had it since 1806 when Thomas Jefferson was the president. Why is that? It’s not just because U.S. senators tend to be pompous and mindlessly with tradition, though obviously they are. It’s because this is a democracy.”

“Sober people know that before you make big changes to a country, you had better be certain that a large majority of your citizens support what you’re doing,” Carlson added.

Carlson asked aloud what the ramifications would be of removing the filibuster, ripping Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and for suggesting it’s elimination and

“Now Biden appears to agree with Elizabeth Warren,” Carlson said. “‘If Republicans won’t obey the newly ascended Democratic Party,’ Biden said recently, ‘we’ll just cut them out of the conversation.'”

“On what grounds do you change a system that has worked demonstrably well for centuries?” Carlson asked. “We justify the same way you justify tearing down ancient statues that until last week weren’t even controversial. You claim they represent bigotry.”

The host warned that Democrats could cement their control of Congress, arguing that “radical legislation” would see no opposition from the minority.

“The filibuster could soon be gone. There’s a lot at stake in this conversation. It’s not obscure. It’s real and it’s practical,” Carlson said. “With the last check and balance gone, there will be no limit to the ways the Democratic Party can remake the country in their first few months in power.”
