At a time when people are being thrown into prison by despotic regimes all over the world, it is ironic that the GOP seems unable to stand up to a future despot for simple fear of the press. As the world looks back at the life and death of people like Dietrich Bonhoeffer and the Scholls who stood up to Hitler (if anyone in USA knows who they were!), they may well look back to the the current Republican “opposition” party that, through nothing less than total cowardice, left the door open.
