First They Came

by lewwaters

Amazing how those who applauded and gave approval of Confederate statues and Memorials being torn down are now alarmed seeing all other Statues and Memorials targeted for destruction as well.

Y’all opened the door for this and approved of it, that is, until it was something that you revered.

It fits perfectly with the tone of Martin Niemöller’s poem,

First, they revised history and painted the South as evil and I accepted it.

Then they banned the Confederate flag, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Southerner.

Then they tore down the Confederate Statues and Memorials, and I did not speak out— because I was afraid of being labeled a racist.

Then they began tearing down statues of the founding fathers, and I cried out forgive their sins, but was ignored.

Then they burned the constitution and enslaved us under Socialism and now, I am forbidden to speak.

    Exactly right. Just as the Seattle and Olympia mayors supported the violent faction of the protesters, until they showed up on “their own” doorsteps. It is disgusting they waited until after theft, destruction, and lives were lost to take any action to the protect the people and property of the state.
    I have to wonder, just as the officers who did noting to stop the actions of the officer involved with George Floyd, shouldn’t these politicians be charged as accessories for failing to take any action to stop these crimes against the people of Washington state.
    What these socialist democrats and their supporters seem to be ignorant of is that they too will lose their rights, along with all the rest of us. Even any democrat with a lick on common sense left should realize the ramifications.
