FIRST THEY CAME

By Martin Niemöller and rewritten for today.

 

First they came for the president
And YOU did not speak out
Because YOU were not the president

Then they came for business owners
And YOU did not speak out
Because YOU were not a business owner

Then they came for churches

And YOU did not speak out

Because YOU were not a church member

Then they came for your cities
And YOU did not speak out
Because YOU did not live in the city

Then they came for the police
And YOU did not speak out
Because YOU were not a policeman

Then they came for YOU
And there was no one left
To speak out for YOU.  :>(

 

This is where we are headed folks if you don’t speak out. Don’t let them come for YOU or abolish the police.

They is the “Democrat Party.”

Think about it. 

“Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) was a prominent Lutheran pastor in Germany. He emerged as an outspoken public foe of Adolf Hitler and spent the last seven years of Nazi rule in concentration camps. He is perhaps best remembered for his postwar words, “First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out…”
