When the Nazis came for the communists,
I remained silent;
I was not a communist.

When they locked up the social democrats,
I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.

When they came for the trade unionists,
I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist.

When they came for the Jews,
I remained silent;
I wasn’t a Jew.

When they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out.

America, Home Of The Intermittently Free And The Rarely Brave

Why oh why is this still happening? This is supposed to be such a great place, a place of freedom and melting pots and all that good, warm fuzzy stuff. Do you only get the good stuff if your family came here before a certain date? That’s crap.

The end.
