If You Haven’t Read Niemoller Lately…

niemoller indexI 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—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
