I was reminded of the famous quote by Reverend Martin Niemoller when I read this front page story in The New York Times about Trump voters, who are suddenly worried because they are losing government benefits they apparently didn’t think Trump would touch.
|“First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
