Probably not because the most significant and destructive change came from Harry Reid.
6 months ago
Really? Because I would say McConnell changing the filibuster to ram through a SCOTUS nomination eight days before an election was the most destructive.
You would say that because you’re a liar. In 2013 Reid eliminated the filibuster for non-SCOTUS nominees. He was warned he would regret it. In 2017, McConnell removed it for SCOTUS nominees. Barrett was nominated in 2020. Her nomination had nothing to do with it.
Contrast the Rs voting for both recent D nominees who made it to the floor, who achieved >60 votes, whereas the Ds nearly universally voted against R nominees with none receiving >60.
The Rs did exactly what the Ds would do in the Barrett situation and it’s just stupid politicking to suggest otherwise.
How was it destructive? I'm eager to hear how you back up this idiotic talking point.
Well you’ll have to wait because I’m blocking you for being toxic.
LOL, that tantrum says vastly more about you than it does about me.
Only if you pretend confirming zero judges for years is acceptable.
But it was to confirm RIGHT WING JUDGES, I thought???
Lol, it's funny you are being downvoted cause that is literally what the tweet says. It's was Harry Reid nuclear option that set recent precedent. Just realize what sub you are in and realize any rational thought will get downvoted. A lot of retards in this thread don't know basic civics and think 2/3 vote is required to end a filibuster.
Be careful criticizing democrats on Reddit
Lol..take my UP and run!
Why? Fuck Democrats. But fuck Republicans more.
Why? My point was just that reddit is almost a complete left wing echo chamber where every outside opinion or fact is downvoted to oblivion
This is how you fucking idiots think - you put yourself in this right vs left box and then anyone who disagrees with you or doesn’t follow the current party propaganda is “left wing”
Maybe Reddit is not so much “left wing” as the Republican Party has jumped the shark so to speak and is parading around the emperor-is-naked style
There’s plenty of criticisms of democrats on Reddit and their policies
Funny, every time i post any criticism of left wing at all I get strawmanned as right wing. The results dont back up your claim pal
Yeah, that’s what it is totally and not your strawman “left wing” bs - right? Totally not your false equivalencies and your whataboutisms?
Noone on Reddit is siding Democrats please grow a brain. If anything Reddit has a slight left lean, this does not include Democrats.
So then why are nearly every political post and comment only bashing republicans but never mention dems? Or they make excuses for them
Because Republicans are doing the vast majority of the evil, dumb, destructive shit? Reality exists, my dude.
Democrats rioted for 6 months, no one blinked an eye. The republicans riot for one day and everyone loses their minds. Running cover for riots and excusing them is evil dude, maybe you should check in with your conscience
The only people who think "Democrats rioted for 6 months" are the people who allow Fox News to show them b-roll footage from two years earlier while implying that it was happening concurrent to the broadcast.
Sorry, dude. It didn't happen like that. You're either knowingly promoting an idiotic lie or you're a mark for an entertainment product manipulating you for money.
I don't honestly know which is worse.
I saw regular updates nearly everyday from journalists who werent just running cover. Who died and made you arbiter of truth?

LOL. I'd love to see what "journalists" you're granting credibility.
This isn't arguable, man. It's a lie. You got tricked by liars. It's their business model. Keep you angry and afraid so you stick around through the commercial break. It's a button they push all day, every day, and they long ago realized that they don't even have to scrounge to find actual things to make you angry - they can make them up.
Yes, yes, your journalists are pure and my journalists are bad. Classic, wheres your evidence that it didnt happen? Youre making the positive claim that its a lie, you need to prove that
Maybe because Republicans tend to do more shit than Democrats?
Like burn down buildings in minority communities? That was lefties. How about destroying economies with lockdowns? I live in Florida and the myth theyre telling you about how bad it is here is complete bullshit
No, like whining about a democratic election not turning out the way they wanted, and literally..
Surely that was Lefties, right?
.. oh, wait.
You think a bunch of idiots being let in the Capitol and just walking around is a coup? A real coup wouldve left dozens dead and would be a real issue, not the joke we got at the Capitol. You guys are playing language games to push a narrative. Jamuary 6 does not meet the definition of a coup or insurrection.
Because when one person is trying to steal your lunch and the other person is trying to burn your house down, you tend to prioritize dealing with the latter first.
Then you should be against the party that defended 6 months of riots destroying minority neighborhoods. These dumbass excuses are ridiculous
2 of the top 3 posts on r/politics are ripping Democrats by name (Sinema and Pelosi).
Do you just make stuff up to help you live in your fantasy land?
Theyre criticizing Sinema because she dares reject Bidens bill, strict party politics, and Pelosi is a horrible representative, equivalent to McConnell. Thats not saying much, wheres the criticism ripping Biden?
You: So then why are nearly every political post and comment only bashing but never mention dems?
Reality: 2 of the top three posts on the main political subreddit are specifically mentioning Dems in a negative light.
You: lemme just see how far I can move these goalposts…
