Democrats are desperate to end the filibuster. They see this as the key to passing their far left agenda, and they’re right.
Without the filibuster, Democrats would be able to pass pretty much whatever they want.
So, in an effort to get rid of the filibuster, they are calling it racist, which is ridiculous because Democrats used the filibuster over 300 times last year.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Democrats used filibuster 327 times, compared to only once by GOP in 2020: Report
President Joe Biden has been increasingly critical of the Senate filibuster, calling it a Jim Crow relic and saying it has been widely abused despite Democrats using it over 300 times in 2020, compared to once by Republicans.
“After @POTUS @JoeBiden denounced the rampant abuse of the filibuster last year, we did some digging,” Fox News anchor John Roberts tweeted Friday. “Republicans used it once. Democrats used it 327 times.”

Well that kind of ruins the narrative, doesn’t it?
Of course, CNN is trying to help the Democrats push the party line.
President Biden says he agrees with former President Barack Obama that the filibuster is "a relic of the Jim Crow era" https://t.co/2Ja2XJtnHj

Everything the Democrats are saying about this is garbage and shame on the media for not making them own it.
Another question that reporters should have asked Joe Biden yesterday — why was Chuck Schumer and his colleagues trying to make America Jim Crow Again? https://t.co/yWDdqjGmHF

Someone should probably ask Joe Biden if he really believes the filibuster is a "relic of the Jim Crow era," then why did he used it repeatedly during his years in the Senate? #bidenpressconference

The Democrats just want power. That’s what this is all about.
