“First they came for the Mexicans and
I did not speak up because I was not a Mexican.
Then they came for the Muslims and
I did not speak up because I was not a Muslim.
Then they came for the African-Americans and
I did not speak up because I was not African-American.
Then they came for the LGBTTIQQ2S and
I couldn't figure out what all those letters meant,
but I was straight so I did not speak up.
Then they came for the journalists and
I was a webmonkey so I did not speak up.
Then they came for me.
By that time there was no one left to speak up for anyone.”
(with apologies to Pastor Martin Niemöller, Lutheran Clergyman, 1945)
