Horowitz: Dems 'Digging a Huge Hole' With Gorsuch Filibuster

Newsmax TV's "America Talks Live"

Wednesday, 05 Apr 2017 04:30 PM

Democrats will be "digging a huge hole for themselves" if they filibuster the confirmation vote for Supreme Court Justice-nominee Neil Gorsuch, David Horowitz, author of The New York Times best-seller "Big Agenda: President Trump's Plan to Save America," told Newsmax TV.

"It's not the proper role of an opposition party in a democracy, but they're locked into this because their base is so far to the left," Horowitz, a onetime liberal-turned-conservative told host Miranda Khan on Wednesday's "America Talks Live."

"They have a communist base, and I use that term advisedly as somebody who grew up in a communist movement. Bernie Sanders is the Democratic Party these days. [He] spent his whole life supporting Soviet communists. He had his honeymoon in Moscow.

"You have to understand the mentality of these people, which I do describe at length in 'Big Agenda' . . . I believe the Democrats are digging a huge hole for themselves."

Horowitz, founder of The Davis Horowitz Freedom Center and editor and publisher of FrontPage Magazine, noted Democrats remain angry at Republicans who last year refused to consider Merrick Garland, President Barack Obama's Supreme Court pick.

"Why should he have? Look, the country's profoundly divided. There was a presidential election. The president, he had to resolve that conflict to see who the American people wanted to be their president and [will] make a nomination and he has. It's Neil Gorsuch," Horowitz told Khan.

"The Democrats are just saboteurs. There's no positive outcome . . . They're just trying to obstruct the Trump administration. They have no positive agenda."

Republicans plan to opt for the so-called "nuclear option" to crush a filibuster.

Senate Republican Conference Chairman John Thune, R-S.D., said Wednesday it is entirely up to Democrats whether the nuclear option will be needed.

A Democratic-led filibuster would be "unprecedented" in the Senate's "230-year history of confirming Supreme Court justices by an up-and-down, simple majority vote," Thune told MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

Horowitz's book, "Big Agenda," which has spent seven weeks on The New York Times bestseller list, is published by Humanix.
