FIRST THEY CAME

By Martin Niemöller and rewritten for today.

First 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 our schools 

And YOU did not speak out

Because YOU were not a student.

Then they came for our freedom of speech

And YOU did not speak out

Because YOU were not a journalist.

Then they came for our elections

And YOU did not speak out 

Because YOU believed they were fair.

Then they came for our Congress

And YOU did not speak out

Because YOU weren’t a member.

Then they came for our President

And YOU did not speak out

Because YOU were not the President.

Next they came for YOU
And there was no one left
To speak out for YOU.  

This is where we are headed folks if we don’t speak out. Don’t let them come for YOU.  This has been their plan all along to take out the president.  Don’t let them.  Speak out whenever you can, peacefully.

They is the Democrat Party and their drones like BLM and Antifa and Twitter.

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…”
