I started paying attention to this sort of obstruction at the time of Clarence Thomas where observers notice this sort of bullshit began in earnest as stated policy of Democrats. Your Party did create this and now rues the situation of its own creation, or says it rues.
What was that Clarence Thomas said back there about your Party's activities?
It's a national disgrace. And from my standpoint, as a black American, it is a high-tech lynching for uppity blacks who in any way deign to think for themselves, to do for themselves, to have different ideas, and it is a message that unless you kowtow to an old order, this is what will happen to you. You will be lynched, destroyed, caricatured by a committee of the U.S. Senate rather than hung from a tree.
That is what your Party did. That is who you are, what you have become.
