英语政治和媒体词典 Dictionary of Politics & Media

filibuster  /ˈfɪl.ɪ.bʌs.tər/ verb or noun] mainly US 

to make a long speech in order to delay or prevent a new law being made(为拖延或阻止新法律的通过而)发表冗长的演说 (Cambridge)

Filibuster是非正式术语,它指通过冗长的辩论,提出众多程序性动议或采取其他任何延迟或阻挠性行动来阻止或延迟美国参议院对法案或其他事项采取的行动。

参议院历史办公室表示:“利用讲废话来拖延或阻止立法行动由来已久。 filibuster一词源自荷兰语,意思是“海盗”从1850年代开始流行,当时该词用于阻止参议院投票以阻止对法案进行投票的努力。

“在国会成立初期,代表们和参议员都可能会受到阻挠。但是,随着众议院人数的增加,众议院修订了限制了辩论的规则。但在在人数相对少的参议院中,目前还存在继续进行无休止辩论的可能性,理由是任何参议员都有权在任何问题上有必要的话语权。

历史上,参议员斯特罗姆·瑟蒙德(R-SC)企图阻止1957年《民权法案》,是最长的反对者。尽管他坚持在台上发言了24小时18分钟,但法案在他停止讲话后仅两个小时就通过了。
