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.

THE WEST WALL

It is a relatively small segment of a far longer ancient retaining wall, known also in its entirety as the “Western Wall”.

IOTD …. Image of the Day …. “Special Edition …. Cinco de Mayo …. “!!  


~~May 5, 2017~~ 

IT’S FIVE O’CLOCK SOMEWHERE ALWAYS

Americans usually make a bigger deal of this date than Mexicans do.

I guess because a party is enjoyed anytime.

Wonder how many will celebrate this year!

Cinco de Mayo, Spanish for “Fifth of May”, is a celebration held on May 5. The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican Army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza.

In the United States, Cinco de Mayo is sometimes mistaken to be Mexico’s Independence Day – the most important national holiday in Mexico – which is celebrated on September 16, commemorating the Cry of Dolores that initiated the war of Mexican independence from Spain.

FIRST THEY CAME … 

Niemöller is perhaps best remembered for his quotation.

Many are aware of the of the time period he wrote about.

Many versions have been adapted since.

Here we have the one that applies for the current reality in this country.

MARTIN NIEMÖLLER

“FIRST THEY CAME FOR THE SOCIALISTS …”

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.

The quotation stems from Niemöller’s lectures during the early postwar period.

Different versions of the quotation exist. These can be attributed to the fact that Niemöller spoke extemporaneously and in a number of settings.

NO SE PUEDE

Carolina Moreno
Editor, The Huffington Post

On Wednesday, October 19, when moderator Chris Wallace asked Trump about immigration policy and reform, he began, as he often does, painting undocumented immigrants as violent criminals. (Despite research repeatedly proving native born citizens are more likely to be linked to violent crime than immigrants.)

Then the GOP nominee moved on to drugs, drug lords and, again, the need to deport “bad people”:

We’ll get them out, secure the border, and once the border is secured, at a later date we’ll make a determination as to the rest. But we have some bad hombres here and we’re going to get them out.

Politics aside, the language Trump uses is just as important as what he is, or rather isn’t, saying. Sure he’s repeatedly spoken about immigrants as if they were a biblical plague of sombrero-wearing, mustachioed criminals yelling “arriba! arriba!” as they run across the border with taco bowls filled with drugs.

But on Wednesday night he turned to Spanish to make his point.

When Trump casually used “bad hombres” that night, what he was trying to do was use our own language against us.

Off-the-cuff or not, that’s just all sorts of WRONG! … to put it in the Donald’s own language.

While many reacted with quips and memes to Trump’s awkward use of “bad hombres,” what I heard was a corruption of something I felt to be mine. My mother’s tongue, the language in which I uttered my first word as a child, the language that feels like family, culture and home in my mouth, being used by a man set on vilifying my community and immigrants.

And in this case Donald, no se puede.

IOTD …. Special Edition …. “Taco Trucks in Every Corner …. “!!

~~September 19, 2016~~ 

TACO TRUCKS EVERYWHERE

Thursday night, September 2, in an appearance on MSNBC, Donald Trump surrogate Marco Gutierrez warned of impending taco overlords if immigration continues unchecked.

Gutierrez, who was born in Mexico and is co-founder of Latinos for Trump, said to MSNBC,

“My culture is a very dominant culture.

It is imposing and it’s causing problems.”

Then he said the line that started a hashtag:

“If you don’t do something about it, you’re going to have taco trucks on every corner.”
