FIRST THEY CAME
This poem is timeless and immemorial. It is so ‘on point’ that is has been used frequently to describe current happenings.
A friend sent me this site and a link to this modern adaptation. It’s befitting to the current reality of the nation.
All credit given to site, author and poet.
Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) was a prominent Protestant pastor who emerged as an outspoken public foe of Adolf Hitler and spent the last seven years of Nazi rule in concentration camps.
Niemöller is perhaps best remembered for the quotation:
FIRST THEY CAME
“The famous poem by an anti-Nazi pastor, rewritten for Donald Trump’s America”
To see Donald Trump methodically lay into one group after another during the months of the presidential campaign has been to see Niemöller’s warning writ large across our screens.
But during all these months, I haven’t noticed much speaking out by one group in support of another.
It’s time for everyone to remember Niemöller’s words, and speak out in support of anyone who becomes the target of this hate-monger and his alt-right cohorts.
At the end of the day, Trump is coming for all of us.
