Deja Vu all over again?

 Huffington Post – Max 1

Then:

“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.

==========­==========­==========­==========­=========
Now:

First they came for the Democrats calling them Socialists­, and I did not speak out –
Because I am not a Socialist.

Then they came for the organizing power of Unions, but I did not speak out –
Because I’m not a Union member.

Then they came for the Hispanics and Muslims, but I did not speak out –
Because I am neither Hispanic or Muslim.

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