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.

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.

Lady Liberty, New York Harbor …. ‘A Poem by Brad Geyer …. Global Citizen …. “!!

~~March 8, 2017~~ 

LADY LIBERTY 

Watch slam poet send an emotional message as he tears into Trump’s executive order on Muslims and immigration.

Immigrants of many countries are having a very rough time now.

In a country very well know for arising from a melting pot of immigrants, it’s not the norm to see this hatred, discrimination, racism and every thing else that has become the standards of the current administration.

Take a look.

This poem says it all!!

EXTINGUISHED FLAME

The New Yorker’s Next Cover Features Lady Liberty with Her Light Snuffed Out

“It was the symbol of American values.

Now it seems that we are turning off the light.”

The New Yorker has revealed the cover for its upcoming issue which will feature an image of Lady Liberty with her flame extinguished, a powerful illustration that comes amid the continued fallout from Drumpf’s executive order banning refugee resettlement and travel from seven Muslim-majority countries.

~The Story Behind the Statue of Liberty’s Famous Immigration Poem~

In the wake of Drumpf’s executive order on immigration Friday, January 27, many critics quickly took up a familiar rallying cry, lifting words from the Statue of Liberty that have for decades represented American immigration:

“Give me your tired, your poor/Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.”

The poem, in its entirety

The New Colossus
Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles.

From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
“Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips.

“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

~Emma Lazarus~

Ashley Judd’s EPIC “Nasty Woman” Speech …. “Women’s March, Washington, DC …. “!!


asly

~~January 26, 2017~~ 

NINA DONOVAN’S POEM

I’ve always loved this woman.

Guess I love her more now.

I saw this video during the weekend and it really left and impression.

Just think … a 19 years old girl from Tennessee wrote these words!

There’s hope for the new generation.

Take a look!

goldswirl

Michael Moore was in for a surprise during the Women’s March on Washington on Saturday when Ashley Judd interrupted him to read a politically charged poem

“I am Ashley Judd,” she declared as Moore reacted in shock, “and I am a feminist.”

She proceeded to recite a poem written by a 19-year-old named Nina Donovan from Tennessee. The contents of the writing included references to Trump’s election, mass incarceration, LGBT rights, the wage gap, and more relevant issues.

At one point, the poem compares Trump to Adolf Hitler.

The poem repeated the refrain “I am not as nasty as…”

at one point attacking Trump’s relationship with his daughter, Ivanka.

“I’m not as nasty as your daughter being your favorite sex symbol,” Judd said.
