Pastor Martin Niemöller

We all know Pastor Martin Niemöller‘s quote here…

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

I fond this rendition to to be noteworthy too:

First, they came for the Blacks. I did nothing, because #AllLivesMatter.

Then they came for the Muslims. I did nothing, because I ‘don’t want the terrorists to win’.
They came for the ‘illiegal’ immigrants. I did nothing, because are they not ‘criminals’?
They came for the Native Americans. I did nothing, because they’re ‘mascots’…not people.
Then they came for me. I was alone. There was no one left to stand up for me….There you stand in your hypocrisy, after making a mockery my friends and me.
