Abbie Hoffman–your cautions resonate louder than ever

This week Republican Senator Wayne Allard of Colorado, in an interview with Fox News radio, said in response to Feingold's action that he has "time and time again [sided] with the terrorists".

Shame on Allard for peddling fear and discouraging dissent. To paraphrase Abbie Hoffman, the strength of a democracy is reflected in the support it gives its dissidents. What is the future of America's democracy if his response reflects this country's treatment of dissidents?
