Chew On This Awhile

As we watch the circus that is Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, I bring you today’s Thought Provoker, courtesy of Wilmington News Journal columnist Harry Themal, quoting anti-Nazi clergyman Martin Niemoeller:
“First they [the Nazis] 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.”
