Letter to the editor: GOP, accept blame

To the Republican Party: Donald Trump is the president you visited on us. He is the head of your party. Several Republicans in both houses of Congress have made inflammatory statements supporting his disturbing acts. And virtually all of you enabled him by your utter silence, resulting in his despotic attempt to destroy our republic on Jan. 6, 2021. For this, for all of this, the Republican Party must shoulder the blame.

Patrick Shannon,
