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.
And my friends, they WILL come for all of us. If you don't believe me, just wait. You're not as safe as you think. Don't tell me to get over it, move on, accept it, stay and fight, and don't tell me how to feel. The world changed overnight and it will never be the same. Stand up to racism, sexism, bigotry, xenophobia, homophobia, and everything that's wrong. Don't stand idly by and waiting to see how it all plays out. We know how it plays out. And it's terrifying.
I am ashamed that I know people who voted for this monster who will soon take the position of President of the (un)United States. If they voted for him, they support his every action. And that's unacceptable to me. The fact that ANYONE supports this dictator and his cronies, is unfathomable to me. I hope to escape while I still can.
