The GOP Viewpoint by Bob Hebert, provided by the Republican Town Committee to The Ridgefield Press (May 17, 2018), is a very one-sided view of who was responsible for the upheaval and violence that occurred in the nation some 50 years ago.
Mr. Hebert appears to attribute the unrest to our nation’s Democratic political leaders at that time, Senator Robert Kennedy, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., President Lyndon Johnson, and Senator Eugene McCarthy. He suggests we can change and fix it, “Together. With respect. With patience. With humility.” And most important, with “a set of political discourse principles grounded in ethics, civility and respect.”
