First They Came for the Jews

First they came for the gays (Link)
Then they came for the bloggers (Link)
Next they will come for the Atheists (Link)
Pretty soon it will be our turn...

Because we know the old poem by Martin Niemiller is true...

First They Came for the Jews

First they came for the Jews
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the Communists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left
to speak out for me.

They are still coming for the Jews and yet you do not speak out.
