It Can’t Happen Here………

Remember this poem? It’s derived from a speech given by a repentant German who had at first supported Hitler’s rise to power. His name was Martin Niemöller:

First they came for the Communists

And I did not speak out

Because I was not a Communist

Then 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
