‘First They Came’ …. “Martin Niemöller …. 🇺🇸 Adaptation for America’s Current Administration 🇺🇸 …. “!!

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

~Wikipedia~

GoldSwirl

“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.

INDEPENDENCE AND DIFFERENT AMERICANS 

Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” is a well-known phrase in the United States Declaration of Independence.

The phrase gives three examples of the “unalienable rights” which the Declaration says have been given to all human beings by their Creator, and which governments are created to protect.

We don’t have to go back to Frederick Douglass’ time or race.

Just look at the current reality in this nation.

African Americans, Muslims, Latinos, Asians and other minorities aren’t totally free and equal.

They aren’t really equal in the eyes of the countrymen.

It won’t be getting any better any time soon!

What is there to celebrate?

On June 4, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was signed, marking the colonists’ independence from Great Britain

July 4th celebrations remind some Black Americans of America’s sordid racial past.
By Elizabeth Flock, Staff Writer

(July 5, 2012)

But some 75 years later, some black Americans weren’t ready to celebrate.

Abolitionist movement leader Frederick Douglass gave a scathing speech the day after Independence Day in 1852, saying:

“This Fourth of July is yours, not mine.

You may rejoice, I must mourn. Do you mean, citizens, to mock me, by asking me to speak to-day?”

Douglass reminded listeners that when the Declaration of Independence was signed, many blacks were still slaves. Even the British were more likely to offer freedom to blacks than the colonists.
Fast forward to 2012 and 2017, where many Black Americans still remember Douglass’ sentiments.

How Many More Must Die? …. “Spoken Word …. by Lula Saleh …. “!! 


~~June 19, 2017~~ 

SO VERY UNCERTAINLY SAD TIMES

LULA SALEH 

After the police officer who shot Philando Castille is set free, after the shooting in a baseball practice, after 3 serial Islamophobic attacks in the United Kingdom within the last month, the killing of Nabra Hassanen, Muslim teen, killed after leaving Virginia mosque, we ask ourselves, like Lula Saleh, has done,

how many more must die?

African American, Muslims, refugees, LGBTQ community, minorities … different people, because of their differences!?

The video speaks for itself.

MUSLIM BAN & HISPANIC PURGE

The video says it all!

This is not the America I used to know.

This is an unknown country to me.

What has this ‘so-called president’ unleash on the population of this country?

I can’t believe what I see every day.

There are no words to describe feelings and reality.

There’s a collective “jaw drop”.

There’s the feeling of having a nightmare that one can’t wake up from.

So sad!

I feel this is important information about what is happening in the Republican Administration lead by Drumpf and what we need to be aware of.

Keith Olbermann series called “The Resistance” continues.

He has posted installment #40.

The video speaks for itself.

If this resonates with you, good.

If they don’t, just scroll away to the next blog.

Thank you!

REGRETS

Regrets, I’ve had a few
But then again, too few to mention
I did what I had to do and saw it through without exemption
I planned each charted course, each careful step along the byway
And more, much more than this, I did it my way

Yes, it was my way …

Partial Lyrics to ‘My Way’

RedLineB

Hollow apology which doesn’t even begin to address the many offensive and insulting things he’s said since he slid (like a snake) on the golden escalator at his building.

Too little, too late.

At least for me.

Trump expresses regret for saying ‘the wrong thing,’ doesn’t specify

“Sometimes, in the heat of debate and speaking on a multitude of issues, you don’t choose the right words or you say the wrong thing.

I have done that.

And believe it or not, I regret it.

And I do regret it, particularly where it may have caused personal pain. Too much is at stake for us to be consumed with these issues,” Trump told supporters here.

He added:

“But one thing I can promise you is this: I will always tell you the truth.”

The real estate mogul did not say which of his numerous controversial statements he regretted.

MAKES A DIFFERENCE WHEN IT’S LISTED

I really don’t know why I bother.

I always tell myself no more about this clown. Yet, he again comes out with stuff that continues to baffle me. I can’t wrap my mind (maybe I have a small brain) around the fact that this “person” continue to spew out things that are so despicable and so unbelievable.

At the same time, he’s the current front runner for the nomination for president of America for the GOP party.

I guess I worry about you, America.

Here you have it, in his own words.

Donald Trump is trying to clean up a racially charged controversy Monday after he refused to disavow former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard David Duke over the weekend.

“I was sitting in a house in Florida, with a bad earpiece,” the brash billionaire told NBC’s “Today” show. “I could hardly hear what he’s saying. I hear various groups. I don’t mind disavowing anyone. I disavowed Duke the day before at a major conference.”

When asked about his comments on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Trump blamed a “bad earpiece.”
